Grumpy Cat

This one started out as an 11 piece build.... and quickly became what you see now.

Inspired by Chris McVeighs amazing brick sketches. Chris uses "markers" for his brick sketches. Mine is less refined and I used crayons instead.

Sign Language

A friend of mine had her gallbladder removed today and while I was in the waiting room I randomly wondered if LEGO in sign language has it's own specific sign, or if you just spell it out.

As far as I can tell you just spell it out. If anyone knows if there is a specific sign, let me know!

built for the 11 pieces contest

I saw this image on a bumper sticker last month and thought it was hilarious. I am not sure when this Unstoppable! T-Rex image first appeared, but it is new to me!

2nd build for the 11 pieces contest. If you count the dinosaur as 1 piece, then this build qualifies. If not, then I am way over on pieces but had a great time on this one and it was worth the effort :)
