Eric Brok succumbed to the effects of prostate cancer earlier this week after fighting it for the last year and a half. Eric is a Dutch AFOL who was a pioneer in the hobby. Over ten years ago he started his website, LEGO on my Mind
, at a time when the online community was in its very early stages. His creations have inspired builders ever since. Castle fans should definitely check out his castle creations including his Estuary Stronghold. Also, be sure to check out the "Thoughts" section of his site, which have insights on the hobby and building ideas. Recently, Eric has made a huge splash in the community by designing the great new set 10190, Market Street. Here are his thoughts
about designing that set, and here is a brief bio
of him on lego.com.
