I got this LEGO mini-fig a few months ago, but brought him out today after dreaming about a new LEGO set. Ever since I saw this video of the Haunted House Lego set, I have been imagining myself buying it and using it for this year’s advent calendar. A Haunted Christmas story! I’m sure I could make it work. I think I’d better put that on my to do list. I can’t shake it.
Part of my job is meeting with the graduates and checking out their portfolios. I got to do that last week and it is a FUN job. Meeting with them and seeing their projects after 15 or 18 months is very exciting. The last few weeks I’ve met with fashion designers, fashion marketers, interior designers, graphic designers and 3D animators. I only wish I could have been in the career consultation with the haunted house engineer/artist/creator. I think that meeting would have gone overtime. I did have that happen with this round of graduates. I chit chatted for some time with a fashion designer graduate who created an entire collection of clothing based on tea parties and cupcakes. It’s very Alice in Wonderland-ish with bloomers and everything. I can’t wait to see her pieces in the portfolio show in July. She’s got a model who will be walking around the show in her clothes serving cupcakes. It’s going to be a great party.
