The Apocalyptic Contest

Well, it has been a while since we last unleashed some good old school creative “fun” contest. You know, one without too many rules. So we thought it´s about time we did it again. And what better occasion could there be than to celebrate the LEGO Movie 2 ?? With just that in full swing all around the world we want to get your creative energies back to the max.

SiPgoes53 – The January Recap

And the first month of 2019 is a wrap. We had our first 5 weeks of January, and we explored Tolkien, Cleopatra, Darwin, Marilyn and Harari. And so did you.

Here are some of your entries that caught our eye.

If you want to join in the SiP goes 53 series you can still join at your own pace and leisure. Just tag along and creatively explore our handpicked fifty-two humans. One every week. And tomorrow we have a fellow photographer for you to get week six going.

But first, let us introduce you to the creative work of these 5 toy photographers and how they saw the world.

Week 1 – Tolkien

Welcome to the Apocalypse

LEGO does it again and turns January into a collectors month of awesome pieces. First we had the classic gas station. And now we get the Apocalypse Burg which is the feature model of The LEGO Movie 2. The movie which will be released on February 8th in most parts of the world. If you don’t want any further spoilers then do not read on, as we will reveal some of the characters which will give away some of the movie plots. That said, the set already was leaked in various social media, and so it may sound as old news to some of us.

If you want to see the full set ahead of the movie, do read on …

A happy 2019

Well, it is that special day of the year again. The last day of 2018. The crossing to a new year. A year that is called 2019 (yep, it is a sequel) and we won’t keep you with long posts looking back on what twenty eighteen brought to us (that is normally reserved for the beginning of twenty nineteen), or long new year speeches and promises. Nope, all of that is (maybe) for a later time.

For now, stay safe, enjoy the turning of the year with friends, family and maybe some toy photography.

We will be back next year.
The SiP Crew.

A little behind the scene …

In every end, there is a new beginning.

Soon 2018 will be over. It means SiPgoes52 will be, too.
Almost.
One week left.
But it’s not the end.
A new year means a new challenge.

Here comes SiPgoes53!

For 2019, we have gathered another list of 52, well, words. This time no values or emotions, but people. People who shaped the world. Shaped humanity and our culture.

Meet Karl

Today is our last #SiPgoes52 #FeatureFriday interview. This week’s it’s Karl (aka @lego_minifig_photos) who joins us for a virtual cup of coffee.

About Karl

My name is Karl, I live in the North of England (Leeds) but I am from Wales (Newport) originally. I’m coming up to half a century old, although my daughter thinks I act like a 12-year-old. I’m very settled now but in the past, I have done a lot of travelling in the UK, Australia, and Asia.

I lived in Indonesia for a year as part of my Degree course. I’m married and have a wonderful 10 year old daughter. Music is a big part of my life and I love discovering new music (usually via BBC 6music) and going to gigs.

Surprise.

I work in a primary school and often run an after-school photography club where the kids love taking photos of Lego and making stop-motion animation. I am the go-to person for all LEGO related things in school, even the headteacher acknowledges my expertise. Continue reading “Meet Karl”

Meet José

This week’s SiPgoes52 word is “inspiration”. So let’s use that opportunity to be inspired by José who’s our guest for this week’s #FeatureFriday interview around a virtual cup of coffee.

About José

Hi! My name is José David. I’m just a Spanish guy in the middle of his 20’s (well, actually a little closer to the 30’s) and currently based in Majorca. I’ve studied chemistry and environmental technology at the university, and I usually work wearing a lab coat while trying not to stain myself with samples or chemical reagents. In addition to that, I also try to be a good teacher to youngsters and help them to understand the exciting (hmm…maybe sometimes not that much) world of science they must study for their exams.
