A stand up guy is an honest and straightforward man of good character. This example is sort of abbreviated but still works, I think. This is a 9 by 5.5 inch gel pen drawing with color pencil. It's yet another of those straight forward yet slightly twisted examples of Original Jones Art as he shines a light into dark corners in northwest Austin, Texas.

I think its nice portrait good job and touch with the yin n yang chin

Artist Reply: Yes, I like the Yin-Yang symbol because it puts forth the value of balance in one's life, in all things, really. I have a friend who, when he saw me wearing one, thought of it more as an 'other' religious symbol which goes to show someone can 'know' one for years without truly 'knowing' them at all. ;)

Artist Reply: Aw, thanks, Maria. You've been busy, I've noticed. You looked very nice as the Spanish explorer. I'm just trying to stay busy. Sound familiar? Hope you and yours are doing great. :)

Artist Reply: I'm not calling it a self portrait as much as 'self expression,' Elton. But if you are saying you think I'm 'a stand up guy' then thanks. :)
