For this build I wanted a Lethal Landscape apex predator that would impress. I wanted a predator that looked fast and might be very smart. Foxes delight me: supreme opportunists, varied diet allowing it to survive in more habitats. Zoologists now arriving on the colonial world work at classifying a whole new planet’s species. Some […]Read More Aliens I-The Red Fox of Planet C-23
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 […]Read More The George Stavropoulos Tree
Already I anticipate the dreaded question for any writer not born with invincible instincts–so what? You’ve written you best, made your arguments, they stand up, and yet the reader finds herself asking, yeah, but so what? Your right. But who cares? It so happens I love Star Wars, even though it’s partially a guilty pleasure […]Read More Star Wars Y-Wing Fighter in Four Different Size Scales. Backwards Building again!

This month there were two such projects: one […]Read More Godzilla: Working Backwards, Fiction to Bricks
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 […]Read More Castles I
Greetings. Everyone. You’ve seen several starfighter shots in this fun run on the themes of my starfighters, the creative process of asking questions about them as I build them and answering with the build. You begin with more power than you can even use through my Lego method. Again, by sculpting the model, the character […]Read More Starfighters IV: The Odessan Pirate Federation
Hi, Folks! Very soon (as soon as I learn one free video editing software or another), I’ll begin posting how-to videos demonstrating how to build several styles of microbuild, starting with my first starfighter, the GDM Arrow, the build that was the spark behind this fiction-writing technique and this blog. After I show you how […]Read More Good news: how-to-build videos coming to Fiction Bricks!
