Hi, All, I haven't posted any new stuff on this site for quite a long time because of difficulties uploading pictures. I invite you to visit my newly established LEGO blog (as of Feb 4, 2019) here:
It's the new 'Tales From The Double Decker Couch' Blog.
Please be sure to visit, and enjoy!
Hello, and welcome to my little corner of the LEGO world!
Just having turned the Big SIX-O this past February, I am a late-in-life AFOL, having been introduced to LEGO through my two young grand-kids.
Couple this with the release of the LEGO Movie last year, and recent visits to some extremely impressive LEGO exhibits, I have become quite hooked.
I did not have, or play with, LEGO when I was a kid, so I never experienced any ‘dark ages’. Everything ABS is new to me as of early 2015!
My approach to LEGO building is a bit unique – As I have enjoyed a life-long hobby of graphic arts and cartooning, most of my LEGO projects reflect these endeavors. My LEGO world is populated with brick-built figures featured either as single-scene cartoons, or in story format. Minifig scenarios are built and photographed in the style of a comic strip.
In short, I have found LEGO to be a highly challenging, but excellent, medium for 3D cartooning!
When encountering the various constructs on this page, please bear in mind that most of them go far beyond the often-times simplistic thumbnail photo on the title page.
Some of them are made up of as many as half a dozen different individual MOCs!
Various Minifig ‘comic strips’ are embedded in the features, as well.
I sincerely hope you enjoy the MOCs and the zany, off-the-wall, irreverent humor featured on this page.
Comments and critiques are highly welcomed.
(Note: Beginning on August 20th, 2015, I started the process of uploading new photos in all of my posts that include dialogue call-outs and other 'cartoony' graphic features. Makes 'em look a lot more like comic strips!)
