Mike Doyle (blog one
, blog two
) is an artist who was previously known (by boardgamers) for boardgame artwork
. He burned out on boardgame art and has taken up a new medium...with stunning results
. This is his very first model and it's an astounding work of craftsmanship, detail, mood, and tone. This is the kind of work that many builders would kill to do after several years of building.
In the AFOL (Adult Fans of Lego) community, there is a term, "Dark Age", that describes the period of time between when a person stops playing with Lego as a child and when that person rediscovers it as an adult. After a visit to Legoland, Mike Doyle emerged from his Dark Age with a vengeance.
In addition to hitting home runs in his first at-bat, he is also blogging about his Lego experience here
. There aren't many entries yet, but his thoughts on art
and standard Lego techniques
show that Mike may well be an innovator to watch.
(tl;dr: Check out this awesome Lego model.
