I recently created the art and 3d objects for these beautiful Purim gift items.
The Purim music box in particular took a lot of work. It has art, revolving objects, lights, and music.
Each 3d object had to be designed and painted in 2d – down to the smallest cupcake. Some of the objects had to be painted from more than one angle. The background of the bakery was painted in detail. Finally, the exact measurements, position, and colors of each object were calculated and sent to the modelers and factory.
Thank G-d it came out really beautiful.

I think I am going to make a book of fake book covers with a fake book review based on each cover.
I have also gotten quit a bit of wonderful random word spam recently. The spammers use algorithms to create comments with words vaguely related and often not at all related to the posts. See this inspiring example from one of my previous posts composed by the honorable poet; Beats for Dr Dre. The results are often very amusing, almost like modern free association poetry.
I think I will start saving some to intersperse with the book reviews.
I hope you have found the man in the middle by now – just stare at the center, he’s staring back.
Fantasy tower with fish.
Here is a color version of the Fantasy Tower. Obviously it needed fish and an evil whale. See below for a very rough version of a short animation (it needs work but it’s an interesting concept) .
