One night we were having a “cultural exchange” with the Malaysian people, so I decided to share a little Brother Jones culture by carving up one of the watermelons.

…monkeys and two interesting signs…
…yep, that’s me… Mr. Dennis Spencer…
Ok, one last look at Malaysia, then I’ll start posting artwork again. I spoke at a university while there, but as you can see from the welcome sign, they got my name wrong. Rodney Dangerfield has NOTHIN’ on me. Of course, it was a pretty crummy speech, so I’m kinda glad my name wasn’t on it. The bumper sticker on the back of the van (What On Earth Am I Here For?) sounds like something you hear on a regular basis in the halls of the Brother Jones corporate office complex.

…so I was watching MonsterQuest on the History Channel this weekend and apparently, everyone in Indiana has seen a bigfoot except for me… of course, several of those people couldn’t pass their lie detector tests, but I see that more as their rich Hoosier cultural heritage coming to play rather than flat out lying.
Anyway, I was looking through some pictures I shot last winter and ran across this one. That’s right, it’s a bigfoot… in the trees behind my house… doing the cha-cha…

My wife came home from a flea market the other day with a bag of nylon lint-free inspection gloves, and they are great for the Cintiq. I had been using cotton photo gloves, but they seemed to quickly stretch out of shape. As you can see from the Sharpie customization job, I am now digitally painting with a much more aggressive attitude.

The Brothers Jones got together in Mountain Grove over the 4th of July and while there, Doug was looking through my sketchbook and said, “you should put a video of this up on the internets for the peoples to see” and not being one to disregard my older brother’s advise… here it is.
As an experiment I loaded the video into my comment section below, and also onto YouTube, Blogger, and Vimeo to compare and contrast the quality. I think the best view is here on Vimeo.
