To be honest, one of the reason why I haven't uploaded any MOCs until now, I've been in the community for a long time and around so many great MOC builder, that I've been a little intimidated and in awe. But for the past few years, since moving to Florida, I've had time to build, with yearly deadlines.
GFLUG's largest annual event is Festival of the Masters (FotM). FotM is an art event that takes place in Downtown Disney in Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. Hundreds of arts display their art & compete at FotM. There are chalk artists throughout the west-side. And for the last 8 years, the LEGO Imagination Center has asked GFLUG to display their LEGO "art" in front of the store to over 200K (on average) people in a weekend. Every year, a theme is picked for FotM and club members build MOCs fitting into the theme (the themes are picked broad enough for everyone to participate, wether you like space, castle, town, or bionicle). This yearly event had challenged me to become more creative. :)
