Lego Me



Hi Everybuddy -

Today I spent some time surfing with Mom. I've been pretty bored. We had our hopes up for a snowstorm here in PA and unfortunately it seems to be fizzling out. We're very disappointed so Mom let me help her surf to pass the time. We discovered something that was published in the 2008 Neiman Marcus Christmas Catalog. For those of you who aren't familar with Neiman Marcus, it's a very exclusive store and their annual Christmas Catalog is enjoyed by many merely for it's entertainment value. They offer things like custom made vehicles, an equestrian farm completely stocked with a stable of thoroughbreds (it's a good thing our girl didn't see that one!), and other items that most of us "normal folks" wouldn't be putting on wish lists. Something intrigued us. For a mere $60,000 one could commission a very talented artist to custom build a life sized Lego sculpture. Take a look:





Pretty cool huh? I think some of you know where I'm going with this! The artist - Nathan Sawaya - has also created other things with Legos. I wonder what Santa would think if he found this on one of his stops:




Huffle, this reminded me of you.....Woo! :



Then there's this coloful looking fellow:




Nathan Sawaya can be found in his New York studio creating some very unique works of art constructed completely out of Lego building bricks. His art has captured the attention of many and he currently has a tour which has appeared in many North American museums. Who knew that disorganized box of plastic squares had so much potential? This got me thinking..........this one should do:



Now all I need is a check for $60,000. Wait until Mom sees what it's for!

$60,000=how many milkbones? Maybe you could start selling your human's stuff on Craig's list? I hear that's a good way to make some money.

worthiHey Khyra,
That's a picture of a Lego Huffle. That's funny. I wonder if Lego Huffle is as cool as Real Huffle? The artist will have to make Lego Ham to go with Lego Huffle.
