Gabe's Background Texture?

I was watching the Gabe Art show and I noticed that he mixes a texture into his backgrounds. It really breaks up any large blank spaces, which is a problem I have when I draw. I think the file he loaded was called "brushes.psd". I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find that texture? I've googled background textures and brush textures, but I haven't found any that look as good as the one he has.

    I was under the impression he made them himself, but no clue otherwise.

    Anyways this should go under the "Questions/Tutorials" thread.

    Actually, you'd have a better chance just emailing Gabe himself. Neither he nor Tycho read the forums.

    I emailed Gabe about his background texture, but I haven't gotten a response yet. So I took a screenshot of the video when brushes.psd was up and tried to recreate it. Unfortunately, I don't think I used the same brush as Gabe but my attempt kinda gets the job done. If anyone wants to use it, this is what it looks like:
    The full size image is around 2200 pixels wide and can be found here:
    Also, I noticed that when Gabe uses the texture, he changes the layer type from "normal" to "overlay".
