All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Arizona Jones Artwork, Part Two

Back in March I decided to share some of my artwork.  There was some stuff that got left out so here are a few more things I drew or painted.  These first ones were from back when I followed the Grateful Dead.  I would draw these illustrations and then give them to friends as gifts or sell them.  This first one is of Jerry Garcia's guitar. 
This second one was inspired by the lyrics of the song Dire Wolf. "I sat down to my supper, it was a bottle of red whiskey" and then latter in the song "I cut the deck to the queen of spades but the cards were all the same"
This third one was inspired from the lyric in the Grateful Dead song called Scarlet Begonias, "Everyone was playing in the Heart Of Gold Band". 
At some point I did this pen and ink drawing of the Beatles.  I really don't remember the motivation.  I ended up giving it to a friend as a gift.  Not a great photo of the drawing but it's all I have. 
This next one I used as a T-shirt design. It is a play on the song called Iko-Iko that is a mardi gras song that the Grateful Dead often played. So I incorporated the Rick Griffin eye ball imagery and made it Eye-Ko instead of Iko, and turned the members of the band into walking eyes.
Here are a series of stylized Arizona landscapes. I did them thinking I would make a calender or post cards, but instead just framed them and put them on the walls of my home. They go pretty well with the theme of this blog.  This first one is of the Petrified Forest.
I did these using a mix of media including air brush and water color painting. This second one is a view from along Schnebly Hill Road in Sedona.
The borders around them of course styled after some Native American art designs. This next one is of course the Grand Canyon.
This next one is a Sonora Desert scene from out near Roosevelt Lake area of Arizona.
And this last one is of one of the ruins out at Waputki National Monument.
