"Hi there! I'm Vlad. I was born in 1980 and started building LEGO some three or four years later: After I returned from hospital from a tonsillectomy, I got the Mail truck (6651). I recently came accross this photo of me and my dad on my fifth birthday. My parents surprised me with one of my all-time favourite sets, the King's castle (6080). I cannot wait for Rowan to grow old enough to play with LEGO!!!

I went into a Dark Age from 13 to 25, but this ended with the release of LEGO Star Wars The Video Game! I bought this very great game, and with it came a mini-kit... That rekindled my old love for the plastic brick! Slowly, but surely, I started collecting, and within a year I produced my first MOC after my Dark Age. It is now (October 2013) eight years later and I still love it! I keep trying to find new uses for old bricks and clever tricks of construction. These tricks - more oft as not - make my MOCs notoriously fragile... Though I'd like to think it is my MOCs that take their breath away, but in fact, friends entering my LEGO-room hold their breath befóre they get in... I explore various themes, but two themes are dominant though; Castle and Space, this hasn't changed since I was a kid!

I work in a laboratory. I develop new ways to combat infectious diseases. This vignette here and this elaborated remake are the likes of a virology lab with equipment I work with every day. This is an artistic impression of an Adenovirus vaccine entering a cell, where it will deliver its DNA payload. Vaccination saves lives.

This is me in the shadow of Dalv, the ever present mercenary anti-hero that claims his role in all my MOCs. Where Dalv goes, frogs usually follow...

I hope I inspire FOLs of all ages, and I love to see tricks of mine, put to use in your MOCs!
Here are some guidelines I cling to, to make my MOCs as pretty as I can...
- Repetion! Whatever the crazy brick it is, when putting a lot of them together it becomes something else entirely, and usually pretty as well.
- Minifigs! Putting some astrofigs behind the controls of spaceships, some well armed guards on the walls of castles, etcetera. Minifigs make MOCs come to live.
- Tiles! It is an awful, awful truth, but it has to be said: studs are not pretty.
- Color! Sticking to one color scheme, obviously. But that doesn't mean it can't be wild, balancing the melee of color through the whole MOC can make it pretty.
- Clutter! Or rather don't... A clean background, or putting up a backdrop helps to make pretty pictures, if that fail, a photo editing program can be used to cut away the distracting background.
- Scale! Bigger isn't better! Make the MOC smaller if the bricks are needed to make it pretty.
- No flash please! LEGO bricks recflect horribly, putting off the flash, holding the camera very still, and doing so when the light is right...

Have fun!!!
