First, a new gun:
A lot of people are asking me how I do these - there is no 3D, it's a composite technique coupled with painting in Photoshop. I've been messing around with Camtasia Studio and I'm looking into making some process videos. Probably coupled with campy techno music. And flash animations of unicorns. People like that sort of thing, right?
I wanted to work on some boxes today and broke into google sketchup this morning. It's been a while since I used it and honestly I don't remember it being this much fun. I'm something of a veteran of the Maya Wars and I find it incredible that google distilled 3D software into something so simple and intuitive. For simple geometric iteration it's perfect.

^ This is a little for fun doodle of the characters I've been posting previously. It was super quick, drawn in between some large-scale environments this weekend as a break.
And it wouldn't be complete without a couple new 1 hour paints:
