Rip Jagger's Dojo
I've seen the pencil one before, but not the completed painting, and I didn't know that it was supposed to be Conan. So! win-win there! I remember liking Jeff Jones a lot when I was a teenager, there was just the right air of sadness and mystery about his stuff to stir the smokey wannabee bohemian in me. I was working at a print shop as a runner for a while, and one of the printers run me off a print of the Solomon Kane cover he did, about A3 in size. I had it on the wall of everywhere I lived for many years, until it fell to pieces, literally.
I have loved this painting since I first glommed it. I have the pencil as my desktop image right now and I have to say the elegance of the work really shines. Jones was a real talent.That Solomon Kane image (I think I know the one you mean) is quite awesome, might almost be the standard image for the character by now. I have that paperback around here somewhere. Rip Off
