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.

 Everyone that participated (by bringing a MOC or being a vendor) got one 
of the upcoming collectible minifigs.
 Amazing.

The Womping Willow
A boat from a very large WW2 dio.

 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.
