'A' is for...

Starting a new town alphabet vignette series. Thought about doing pirates, but everything was going to be too similar. So I went with town instead. So my first entry is:

A is for Architect:

Hey that's great Steve. I was kinda sad when your castle A-Z was done.

Look forward to many more!

Nice work Athos. I do like your architect - he looks like something that Lego would have made, if they had thought about it.

I look forward to your new Town Alphabet.

Great job, I'm glad that this series isn't dying. It's very simple, but very effective

Yay! Another alphabet series by the almighty Athos!

This vignette is great! I love the architect, he is sweet!

I second Remyth's statement. Keep 'em coming!

Hmm, A is also for Athos...

Very Nice. But I have a question. Why does the workers don't match. One is wearing a worker's torso from the 2000's (I really can't make it out.) And the other worker is wearing a torso from the 1980's? Besides that, everything fits together.

Cool! I like the architect fig, and the design of the building in progress is nice.

I was sad and depressed when the castle alphebet died. :cry: But the new incarnation looks just as good. :D

Meh. You can do better. The architect fig doesn't even look like Ben (Har Har!) :lol:

How about a Renaissance alphabetized series?

Yeah, but sometimes when you've got a certain subject in mind there isn't much you can do with it.

Ouch. I am not that boring am I? :wink:

I like the the construction workers and the steel framework of the building. I would suggest giving the Architect a hard hat so nothing falls on him during his site inspection. A few more materials laying around could also add to the vig.
