Braden of Sinon

The setting of Sinon and the three principal characters are grabbing me, all of which I have now made Lego models of. Here’s a shot of thieves’ guild of Sinon run by Irma, a benevolent but cruel river dragon who runs the guild disguised as an old tall woman with perfect teeth and long silver […]

Portia of Sinon

A street thief, a good one, who lives to organize other thieves. Impose a little decency if you can sell it to desperate kids. Portia always tried, but when you’re the boss, you have so little power. And they can turn on you, kill you in your sleep. Portia survived. By age 13 she ran […]

Elisa Marsa Duchess of Thrane, Elisa of Change: A Meditation on a Favourite Character from “Light”

Elisa was thought a fop at the courts of any of the Three Realms. To the Queens she was a worry. They feared another ambitious noble would try for her fief, and take it probably. The woman had no record in war, no honour. Just a very pretty, scarless, white-as-snow complexion, kissable triangle of a […]

Urban Dragon on Patrol–Toronto, 2027

Dragons. So wonderful and breathtaking to imagine. They emerge, a few or a handful per population centre, in 2025, joining the countries in which they would live as citizens. Bringing help to many urban problems, Elista and other dragons are surprisingly modest advocates for themselves considering all the good they are heard and reported to […]

The George Stavropoulos Tree

Here is the masterwork that took me far out of my creative element of Robots, Starfighters, and Castles (my staples!). It’s a Lego build of a tree, itself a portrait and symbol of Mr. George Stavropoulos, a friend, and my boss at work. It’s impressive, and I didn’t mean it to be. I meant it […]

Castles I

First let me tell you about the legend of the Red Ruin. For four hundred years it stood between us and the savages. It stood for civilization and not tribal wandering and savagery in behavior, like cannibalism. It stood for decency. But finally it fell to the barbarians who united their resources under a powerful […]
