*NEW* LEGO Sketch Art

Hi!

I wanted to share with you all some drawings I've been doing recently -- a series of cartoon-style representations of LEGO minigures from the various licensed themes they've done.

At this point, most are just outlines and still need to be coloured and shaded. And, I'll eventually update them as I get around to finishing each one. But, for now, I thought I'd post some of what I've done.

The link below is to a set I've created for them over on my Flickr account, until I get a chance to make a permanent home for them here on my site. Anyhow, give it a click and check them out. I hope you like them!

introducing...BigFigs!

This is an idea that I've had in my head for a while, but never seemed to find the drive to sit down and bring to life. But, when it hit me a couple weeks ago just how close BrickFest was and that I really had nothing new to bring with me, I thought what the heck, why not give it a try?

They're made to look like LEGO minifigures, just bigger. They disassemble in all the same places that regular minifigs do, and that means you can make a bunch and then swap their parts to make all sorts of combinations.

I know people have constructed large models of minifigs in the past, but BigFigs are different. Using new techniques and parts, I think I've managed to come up with something pretty unique, and I hope you'll enjoy them and much as I do.

rise and shine, sleepy bears!

My oh my, it sure has been one heck of a long, snowy winter here in New England, and for a while it was feeling like it was never gonna end. But, it's a beautifully sunny 55 degrees in the Boston area right now, and that's just awesome. I know it's still a few more days until the actual first day of spring, but I already feel like a bear waking up from hibernation.

And, speaking of bears ;-) well, it seems as though the sunshine has brought with it more than just smiles and Sausage Egg McMuffins this morning:



A new model. =) I hope you like it!

"Ugly? I'LL show you UGLY!"

"pfffffrrrrrrt!" :-D

I quote the great Windy Winston from the 1987 motion picture, "Garbage Pail Kids," a low-budget film based on the awesomely gross trading cards / stickers of the same name, a series which debuted in 1985 and, if I'm not mistaken, still continues on today.

They're disgusting and hilarious, and if you've ever been a fan, I absolutely invite you to check out a new set of galleries that I'll be setting up on my website here for Trading Cards (in the Photos area).

I've managed to save a modest collection of great stuff from my childhood, and now that I'm a bit older, I'm pleased to share as much of it as I can with YOU -- people who are awesome enough to remember and love all the same junk that I do! So, to kick things off, I'm scanning in ALL of my Garbage Pail Kids cards. Right here's a link to the first batch I've done, containing all the cards I have from series 1.



As always, enjoy!

Looks who's blowing back into town

It's SnowblowerMan! Well, actually, since it's still Autumn, he's LeafblowerMan.

But, don't let the name change fool you: he's still just as regular and romantic as always. He's back for a whole new series of landscaping-related escapades, so be sure to check back often to keep up with his near-daily exploits in the ongoing upkeep of matters both women and weather.

The Cantina Project

Prior to making my recent trip out to Seattle, WA, to attend BrickCon a couple weeks ago, I began building models for my new custom LEGO project. My idea: to create a larger-than-miniland scale diorama of the Mos Eisley cantina scene from Star Wars Ep. IV: A New Hope. It's something I've wanted to do for a long time, and a natural progression from the Star Wars models I've been making for years. The cantina scene is rich with all kinds of alien species, as well as scenery and situations, so there's no shortage of material to recreate. I'm planning on making this an on-going project, one that I'll be constantly adding to and updating. So, to kick it off, I've got six different character models: the Bith cantina band members, Greedo, a Jawa, Kabe, Muftak and Ponda Baba. I invite you to check them out now, and to check back every so often for new models as I add to the collection:
