Celebrating LEGO’s 80th Birthday

August 10, 2012

It’s LEGO’s 80th Birthday. In celebration, here’s the official video celebrating 80 years charting their successes (and failures). It’s a moving 17 minute CG film that is beautiful, inspiring, and heartbreaking.

From the early days, through war, fire, loss; through determination, conviction, and faith – shows a family built to build.

The film does, however, make me dislike Mega Bloks, K’NEX, and KREO even more. LEGO created a path to change toys forever through passion and quality. Creating a toy system so uniquely theirs and through that vision they endured such tragedy. It’s so hard to justify any purchase to a company that would steal their very original idea.

It’s a definite must see.

Six Seasons and a Movie Community Art Show

August 7, 2012

I had the great pleasure of attending the Six Seasons and a Movie art show in June, when it was in its full glory. For whatever reason, I never got around to posting images of the event. Well I’ve just remedied that. Chang out some of my favorite shots here or view my full gallery of pics on Flickr.
