Hi all! I’m back after a very long absence! I’m sorry I’ve been so lax with writing, but right after I got back from my trip from Florida I had a huge model (two 2 ft long models) and very little time to do it (6 days). So I didn’t do anything including sleep the last week. There will be a future post on it, just not quite yet.
Now that the model is finished and delivered in Vegas (long story) and I’ve had a little bit of sleep I can finally get back to my version of normal.
Even though I have lots of great stories and future posts from my Florida trip, including what I was doing down there, I still haven’t uploaded the several thousand — and I mean that literally — photos I took from the trip. I will tell you that I hit all the important LEGO sights.
So as you can tell none of this has anything to do with my post title. While here is what STUDS is all about.
Fellow LUGOLA member Brandon Griffith has cooked up a very cool idea — STUDS trading cards.
I can’t seem to upload the video, but if you click on the picture it will take you directly to the Kickstarter site and you can watch it there — which I highly recommend.
Here’s the description:
The adult Lego building community is a vital, diverse and interesting world. An alliance of creative individuals, each with their own unique building style, artistic focus and distinct personality. You’ve all seen incredible Lego models in the news and on the Internet – now learn the names and faces of the people responsible for creating the work. STUDS is a trading card set that profiles the men and women who use Lego to build incredible, original sculptures and brings you an close-up view of this fascinating world. Each card has the image of an amazing Lego creation on the front of the card and info about the work and the artist on the back.
It sounds like a great idea and I’m all for it!
