2018 in LEGO

Another year has come to a close…
Highlights of 2018:
– 30 LEGO builds!  That’s a lot less than previous years… hopefully in 2019 I’ll be able to pick up the pace again!
– Self-publishing my first LEGO-illustrated book, God’s Covenants: Retold in LEGO Bricks.
– Collaborating with Garmadon on Shinmizu Village.
– More progress on my Tiny Trailblazers series.
– Brickworld Chicago 2018 was a huge highlight for me, including winning the last round of the Simon Games, playing Ultimate Frisbee and Soccer with InnovaLUG, participating in the Isles of Aura collaboration, and some great games of foosball!
– My largest build to date, Arctic Display, a project for The Brick Blogger.
– Joining Skaforhire and LittleJohn as co-leader of Kaliphlin.
– Collab with fellow MCTC members Capt Wolf and Elostirion to build up the settlement of Saldia Este.
– Helping to organize Kaliphlin at Work, a collaboration with 5 other GoH players.
– Working on instructions for multiple builds (see my new Youtube channel for an early look at a couple of those).
– Crossed a few things off my bucket list this year… going kayaking and canoeing, flying a plane, earning green tip belt in Taekwondo, reading Human Action, flying 10000 miles twice (NOT as co-pilot in this case…), to name a few!
