Hi all, I know I’ve been off the blog for quite a while now, almost a month in fact. If you’ve been following me on Model Building Secrets Facebook page (and you really should ;) ) then you’ll know that I’ve been working on a huge project, 4 ft long huge to be exact. I am almost done with it, and should get back to more normal postings within a day or so.
Now I’m not into April Fool’s, so the only “prank” I’m going to play is that I won’t tell you what I’m working on. What I will tell you is that I will be at PAX East in Boston next weekend building my current project on site. So if you are going, come by and say hi.
Even though I don’t like April Fool’s Day, I did like this latest creation by Sean and Steph Mayo.

This should make you into a Miniland-scale fan: A woman named Leah applied for an internship by designing herself out of LEGO bricks and sending it — along with a resume in the form of a poster illustrated with Lego elements — to prospective employers. Guess you could say she’s really building up her career. (via Jezebel.com)

Something that I like to do on my free time, is to browse into my likes around the web. Today, I found that brilliant documentary that was released three years ago AFOL: A Blocumentary.
Directed by Jess Gibson, this short documentary introduces us to a wonderful thing that we are all aware of, but never really pay attention to: passion.
Here, Jess made a really nice work trying to show the incredible passion that Adult Fans Of LEGO have for that amazing toy company that we all know of: Lego.
I was and am still impressed with the passion, patience and talent that the people interviewed have.
AFOL: A Blocumentary is probably one of my favorite documentaries about creativity and community.
Have a Sound Day.
