Bruce in The LEGO® Movie

Well, not Bruce, per se, but Bruce’s work…

Bruce in The LEGO® Movie

The LEGO® Movie was released this past Friday, February 7th and I had the pleasure of seeing it on opening night with my wife and some friends. It was nice to see a few of my MOCs made it into the movie!

My donut (and a few others which I didn’t see on-screen) were used on set for a live action scene towards the end of the movie. My taco can be seen being carried by some mini-figures during the Taco Tuesday/TAKOS scene. During the end credits, my hot dog and cow skull can be seen a few times. As one might imagine, it’s pretty cool seeing one’s own work in any movie, but even more so THE LEGO® Movie, which is almost unanimously loved by both critics and viewers! One might even say that everything is AWESOME!

Say what you will, but I think my headshot is what sold the powers that be on my donut:

STUDS Collectible Trading Cards

Brandon Griffith’s STUDS Collectible Trading Cards was, I believe, the first successful LEGO-themed Kickstarter project. It’s a great concept, and the final product is fantastic.

I have the honor of having been chosen as one of the three featured artists for Series 1! There are eight different cards highlighting some of my most popular MOCs on one side, and a brief bio on the other side. PLUS, There are an additional nine cards that combine to show instructions to the Lowell Sphere on one side, and a new photo of my billiard set (based off the Lowell Sphere) on the other side.
