I'm an adult Lego fan and I've loved Lego my whole life. Many of my fondest memories as a child are building/tearing down/modifying/playing with my favorite town, castle, space, and pirate Lego sets. Hard to say really if I had a favorite, as I think each theme captivated my interest at various times.
On this page I share both my own, and creations by my friend Keith whose Lego story roughly parallels mine:
We both had a strong steady childhood buildup of sets and pieces (including lots of mega bloks… shhhh don’t mind that) to a local peak in high school then a sharp decline through the busy years of college and new jobs until we discovered the joys of LDD in our mid twenties. Now we’ve met our thirties and our interest in designing Lego MOCs has only continued to rise. In 2013 I had the great fortune to buy a house and reunite with my physical lego collection, but I didn't have a place to build until I set up a storage system and a work desk in my office in 2015. Thus I began in earnest to build MOCs in the real and purchase (to my extremely supportive wife’s bewilderment) more and more parts and sets. Keith currently enjoys the apartment life and as such his creations will remain LDD for a time.
An exciting development is that my brother Greg has now also decided to join in the fun. Lucky for me he's recently moved to also live in Seattle. As kids we spent lots of time building and playing legos together and as he's a lot younger I often helped him with his designs. So for now we're building quick builds during movies and you'll see his work pop up now and again!
It astounds me every day while viewing the brilliant creations of others how much I have to learn and how deep a craft that Lego can be. Since discovering MOC pages I’ve attempted to soak up new techniques like a sponge and it is always rewarding to try new methods. Therefore I must thank you countless lego fans who take the time to build amazing creations and post them online for the entertainment and enlightenment of others!
