Earlier this month I was commissioned by LEGO AFOL Community Team Manager Kevin Hinkle to create Brick Sketches of each member of the AFOL Relations & Programs team! 

From left to right:
Tanja Friberg- Senior Manager, AFOL Relations & Programs Team
Kevin Hinkle – Community Manager
Ana Albouy – Community Operations Specialist
Jan Beyer – Community Manager
Jacky Chen – Community Manager
Kim Thomsen – Community Manager

It was a fantastic challenge. As some of you may know, I tend to shy away from unmasked faces in my Brick Sketches. This experience helped me get over that fear and develop new approaches to eyes, cheeks, and other facial features. Ultimately, I hope I've found a sweet spot between realism and caricature that will let me create more 'unmasked' faces in future Brick Sketches!

Need to get a plate off a tiled surface, but don't want to remove a swath of tiles to do so? Try using part 62462 (Tube W/Double Ø4.85). It has more clutch than a brick or plate, and can make quick work of pulling up the unwanted plate! #lego

Although yesterday's post pictured the Byte Edition, you may be interested to know that there's My Old Desktop: DOS Edition, too! This short animated GIF shows some of the features of the model. (Note that all three drawers open, not just the top one!)

Preorders for this custom building kit are open now at shop.chrismcveigh.com

When my son (age 8) saw yesterday's post he thought it was a real desk from a distance. I'm sure he'll love this one too.

Professional Geek. No, Really.
Introduction
Once upon a time, I was born. Then I grew up and did some stuff, and some people even thought I was cool. You know, for like eight minutes. That was fun.
