MOC-off! (and other news)

   I got on MOCpages for the first time in months and Luc Binion challenged me to a rematch for a MOC-off that happened 6 months ago. I have a MOC that is more than half way done that I could pull together real fast. So, I am probably going to post that. It should be posted by Saturday morning. I also saw that the collectible minifigures are available at Toys R Us, I wish I had time to buy a couple of them. I also started writing a script and creating minifigs for an animation that will take a long time to make.

I will also be tweaking the sidebar and the footer because the sidebar is kind of boring and the footer is plain and simple, and I need to put the pages tabs at the top again. The good thing is that I am now able to run GIMP on the Mac, along with Pixelmator, Seashore, and Paintbrush, so now I can crank out any kind of graphic.

BrickMagic 2010

     I got back yesterday from one of the most fun and exciting things in my life, BrickMagic, a Lego festival for Lego enthusiasts. It was truly amazing. Comparing it with DC's Lego convention, Brickfair it was about half the size. But, BrickMagic had wonderful workshops and presentations. Brickfair had about twice as many people and it had about twice as many MOCs and vendors, but it didn't have workshops (at least that I know of). BrickMagic also had a special guest, Nathan Sawaya, The Brick Artist, he was a absolutely fantastic speaker. His pieces of art (they were so good I wouldn't even call them a creation) were amazing too. And all he uses is square and rectangular bricks. Other builders that were there include, Joe Meno (editor of BrickJournal), Jordan Schwartz (aka Sir Nadroj), Mathew Hocker, and Kaminoan. Some of the vendors that were there are Here are some pictures of the event.

 That was pretty much everything. I learned how to make stop motion animations, or Brickfilms in a workshop class. I created one and it should come up in my next post along with a huge WIP.
