     Jones is the Creative Director at Bento Box Entertainment and has also produced work for the Simpsons, WU TANG COMICS, created television shows for Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, FOX and FXX along with occasional music video production and furniture making.  Jones’ work is a mash-up of all of his passions in life, with equally balanced influences from music, graphic design, technology, entertainment and art. His works seem to envision a minimalistic version of the future, pulsing with sharp color and an ambiguous narrative regarding where technology seems to be driving our culture.
