Welcome to my new blog. LEGO builders may know me from my site, Brick Tales, or from my participation in various LEGO forums. This site, however, will not be a medium for me to display my own creations (known to LEGO fans as MOCs), but rather to highlight my new favorite style of building, vignettes (see below), by a variety of AFOLs, TFOLs, and KFOLs (Adult Fans Of LEGO, Teen Fans Of LEGO, and Kid Fans OF LEGO).
What is a vignette? In the context of LEGO building, this is a scene built on a small (usually 6x6 or 8x8) platform. Vignettes are meant to capture a small slice of life. It's easier to show than to describe, so here are two that I built for last Sunday's Academy Awards.
Get the idea? Anyway, in the course of this blog I'll basically highlight new creations by a variety of builders when I find them. There is also a huge backlog of creations that I'll highlight to fill in slow days, and I'll also throw in my own when I make them. I'll occasionally also add a short essay relating to the hobby, or important news in the LEGOverse.
It is my hope that this blog will be fun for both AFOLs and non-AFOLs. This is not a blog about politics, or sales, or anything like that. It's simply a place to have fun with a hobby. So, stop in from time to time and join the fun.
