Hey, I missed the first anniversary of VignetteBricks. One year and two days ago, this blog was started to celebrate LEGO vignettes. In that time, we've featured just under 600 individual vignettes, not to mention many series of vigs and vig-like-creations. These vigs were created by just over 200 builders. The most prolific builder has been Nelson Yrizarry, whose 57 featured creations just edged out Steve Bishop's 55 featured creations. Some other notably prolific vig builders include Andrew Becraft, Chris Doyle, Lenny Hoffman, Izzo, Chris Malloy, Moko, Mumu, Rober-to, and Patrick Yrizarry, though there are tons of others who have built their fair share of scenes.
In the past year we've seen a growth in the scope and skill of vignette building. New trends have arisen including combined vignettes, Joe Vig, the LEGO shiritori game, and the brand new V-pods. Vignettes have been featured in numerous contests, at BrickFest, in Brick Journal, and in new forums such as the Lugnet.build.vignette forum, the kotsky vigs forum, and a Flickr vig group.
In addition to vignettes, I'd like to think that this blog has also helped encourage other LEGO fans to start blogging. I'm also happy that we've played a small role in encouraging ties between the American/European and Japanese sections of the LEGOverse.
The credit for all of this goes directly to YOU, the vig builders and vig fans. If it weren't for you this site would have featured about 10 or so posts on my own creations. Thank you for your continued patronage of this blog and for the creative inspiration of your MOCs.
