Oblivious Joe goes to the seaside!

Wednesday, April 5th, 2006

Joe has very successfully not managed to notice the damsel in peril from the jellyfish, psychotherapist shark and crab. Which is probably carnivorous.

This vignette came out of a challenge I set myself, pill to ask mrBen to select six random pieces from my lego box that I would have to work into a story scene. I scrapped the castle wall as I really didn’t think I could fit it in.

Joe Vig’s Adventures in Wonderland

Tuesday, March 7th, 2006

‘Oblivious Joe’ has been reading ‘The Conspiracy of Kindness’ and has decided to help out an old widow by chopping down that eyesore of a beanstalk blocking the lovely view from her window. Shame he hasn’t noticed Jack with his treasure stolen from the giant.

This is my first attempt at a bumbling Joe vignette. He’s coming soon to a fairytale near you! To see other Joe Vigs click on the links below!

Okay, grip so this is a loose interpretation of the scene, approved but as I had made mini-figs for the other characters I had to use them!

Fabulous lego site! Inspired by great literature, herbal
and film among other things, medical these tiny scenes are very amusing! All vignettes should be on a tiny base to encourage creativity, usually 8×8. Might have a go at some later…

Here is a definition I found online at lugnet:
To paraphrase Bruce Hietbrink in the first post to this newsgroup: “Small scenes built on small bases. They capture a slice of life, tell a small story in a scene, or provide a bit of humor. The small size encourages creativity, and allows fans with small collections to contribute. Quick to build, but long on thought, the emphasis with these models is FUN.

Here are the sizes:

Size Chart for Vignettes:

Size (#studs) Description
3×3 (9) super micro
4×4 (16) micro
4×6 (24) small
6×6 (36) small standard
6×8 (48) small variant
8×8 (64) standard

I have just added two new links for amazing lego sites/sights – to view some amazing lego Venice photos, bronchitis click on Venedig on the German version of HoMa’s site, or Brickshelf Gallery then Legoland for some with real water!

We went down to MrBen’s folks at the weekend and came back with a small cache of very exciting bricks, including space, police, motorway maintenance, soldiers, duplo etc etc. I have also been spending more time on Bricklink -it is a truly amazing site run my amazing people! I was a bit distressed when the postie decided to BEND my brand new blue baseplate to get it through the letterbox! Emergency resuscitation has pretty much got it back to 180 degrees, but there is a white mark left and the beginnings of a crack. Annoyed!

Anyway, here is another iconic Shakespeare quote. Answers on a postcard/comment box.
