I saw every one of your photos on your memorial page Tom. I wish I could have met you in this life. My prayers are with your friends and family as they try to get through another day without you. You leave a legacy for both those who knew you and for those who wish they did - macwells
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A crash in front of the Art Car Museum killed the museum's curator of photography just hours after the annual Art Car Parade.
A memorial is now springing up at the deadly accident scene. Friends who knew Tom Jones, 51, say he never met a stranger and he played an unforgettable role in the art car community, adding it's a very dark day for Houston.
He was sitting on the curb in front of the museum Saturday night when police say a suspected drunk driver lost control, striking a parked car, which then struck Jones.
For the past four years, Jones has been curator at the Art Car Museum.
"He was part of art car before art car became a parade," said Nicole Strine, President of the Houston Art Car Klub.
Those who knew him best say it was more than a job, it's been a passion for most of his life.
"It's a loss and I can't imagine what it's going to be like to have the art car community without Tom in it," said Strine.
Outside the museum, friends remembered the man known for many talents from painter to photographer, entertainer and even mechanic. Director of the Museum Noah Edmundson says he can see the work of Jones in almost every corner of the museum.
"I think about all he did around here and it's going to take ten people to replace him," said Edmundson.
Jones was killed as the biggest weekend for art car enthusiasts came to a close.
Artists around the world have been calling Houston, offering their sympathy.
"With Tom, there was no negative. He's gonna be greatly missed," said Strine.
For a man who did so much to encourage expression.
"That's what Houston is really gonna miss, someone to give someone else a chance and always a helping hand," said Edmundson.
Friends say Jones had to learn to walk again after a 2001 accident when he was struck while on his motorcycle. They believe that may have hindered him being able to move out of the way last night.
Houston police are investigating the accident. We're still waiting to hear the exact charges the driver who struck Jones may face.

My daughter Lauren's Painting of a Mermaid will be contributed to the Yes Prep School's Silent "Art In Action" Charity Benefit Auction in Houston on May 11, 2007. The proceeds will support 15 Texas high school students and teachers participating in Peace Corps projects in West Africa this summer. The Peace Corps has invited them to the villages of Wamfie and Kranka, Ghana. They will help build a community center for youth, many of whom suffer from or have lost parents to AIDS. They will help build homes, create sustainable alternative livelihood projects, and conduct health and HIV/AIDS prevention classes. www.yesprep.org

....my "Go Rodeo" Boot at the circle drive of Sam Houston Memorial on a gorgeous day.... I was told by an Austin tourist that Bob Hope once stayed in a hotel across the street overlooking this park and with the reflection pond, monument, statue, gorgeous trees - that he thought it was one of the most beautiful scenes he had ever seen. I'd have to agree as people played frizbee, soccer, were rolling down hills... all the children were at play... a beautiful crisp breeze and laughter filled the air as Lauren and I goofed off around town.

It was a real experience painting these boots this year...
I've always been bummed that I didn't get to paint a cow during the cow parade in Houston, so when I heard of the call for entries with the Rodeo Boots - I jumped at the chance... and encouraged my daughter to submit a design too... A few boots later, we both look back and shiver thinking of painting in our 40 degree garage - brrrr! We both had like 2-3 layers of clothes on - we put it all to jazz and it was all good... I'm proud of you Lauren - we'll have more fun as we paint more together.
STATUS of boot: Sold

Massage Therapy T-shirts and Gifts for that favorite Masseuse!
Okay, so like I was in a 'I want to think of a new profession to design t-shirts for' mode in my shop, and I thought of the all-popular Massage Therapist! What would one of these awesome professionals enjoy wearing? After posting 3 hot new designs, my favorite: "I knead you." Funnily enough (my sister-in-law's got me saying that now) I wish I could wear it myself... but hey - I'm no masseuse!!
