Blown away

My 5 year old son blew me away this morning. He made his own Lego spaceship, all by himself! He identified all the parts and it was really cool. As soon as I download the pics, I’ll put them up. I knew that he enjoyed the stuff I made, but it’s a special thrill to see him create his own.

The next step in Lego evolution?


Here is the start to what promises to be a fantastic story line in one of my favorite web comics, Legostar Galactica. Ironically enough, the comic has yet to do a spoof of the actual Battlestar Galactica, despite its name. Go figger.

Olde English in a new context


The final battle of Beowulf. This is a seriously cool piece. I have a thing for mountains, and this one rocks (no pun intended).

Check out the other fantastic creations at The Brothers Brick. They do a much better job than I could at keeping up with the amazing world of Lego creations.

Cruise Liner


I am finally starting to take photos of my Lego creations, MOCs, in the parlance of Legoheads (My Own Creation). Here is a cruise liner I did. I promise my pictures and my designs will get better as I practice. You can view more pics here

Legos still rock

I have always been a big Lego enthusiast. I even have a small collection of bricks that somehow survived my childhood and various adult moves. My son is now 5 and has discovered the joy of building. And I’ve found some great sites to keep that enthusiasm burning.

  • The Brothers Brick – a fantastic blog dedicated to the art of Lego creation
  • Brickshelf – pictures of some amazing creations
  • Brick Link – an astounding assortment of Lego sets/pieces to buy/sell
  • MOCpages – a community dedicated to those who want to show their MOCs (that’s My Own Creation, in case you were wondering. I had to look it up)
  • Bricksmith – a really awesome Lego building software for the Mac. Let’s you virtually create anything in Legos. Uses the LDraw libraries.

I will soon have some photos of some my small attempts at Lego greatness to view.

So check it out, get some Legos and start building!
