Graduation Gifts
About this creation
These are gifts I made for people of my university upon graduation. Each one is engraved by Tommy Armstrong. More pictures are on Brickshelf.


The pirate ship was made for my residential college director whom I've known since freshman year. This creation was my foray into building the pirate theme, and it was by a miracle that I discovered the resemblance of white windscreen pieces to sails. More pictures


The exercise vignette was for my physiology professor, who really cared for her students and made a point to drill it into our young minds to exercise and take care of our bodies. Her quote engraved on the vignette got me back into running this year. More pictures


The DNA vignette was also given to my research mentor, and it was for the special occasion on his 60th birthday last week. The spiral effect achieved with Bionicle claws contines to be a hit; the effect of this technique far overshadows its simplicity. More pictures


The vignette of the green ball is a gift for my behavioral ecology professor, one of the funniest and liveliest faculty at the school. I've compared attending his classes to watching stand-up comedy, and I hoped to have captured this liveliness in a video showing the motion and sound effects of the creation. More pictures


This depiction of our school's landmark, Brooking's Hall, is a gift for my super friendly and resourceful four-year adviser. The build uses the medium dark flesh color from the Prince of Persia sets, and the rarity of the colors reflected the $100+ pricetag on my Bricklink orders. The creation is also my first attempt at building an architectural replica, which I am quite happy for the push to expand my building repertoire. More pictures


This fantasy aircraft is for my lab bench mentor, who taught me the skills of DNA manipulation and the etiquette of research. I've never built an aircraft like this, but knowing his interest in hobby planes, I couldn't think of anything better to make. More pictures


This DNA sculpture park was made for my research mentor, whom I had the privilege of working in his genetics lab for three and a half years. The DNA helix codes for a secret message, which can be solved with some knowledge of molecular biology. More pictures

Hey Brother! We caught these on the "BB" a few days ago, and were astounded. Truly remarkable builds, and the fact they're inspired by gratitude makes them even more Magical. We wish you a great future in Med School, and beyond! We'll see you at Brickworld, Nannan...Thanks for posting these here for our Mpages Neighbors!

I know I've already gushed about these elsewhere, but have to just throw another salute your way here on MOCpages. Some fantastic work in some rather diverse subjects. By the way, I like to run, too...usually to the fridge during commercials...but there are still some similarities.

That last build reminded me of the Molecular genetics class I took last semester. Good times. Excellent builds as usual, with my favorite being the plane. Really great work here.

Excellent work. I can't think of a better thank-you than a custom built Lego vig. Great work and congratulations! Peace ~ Packie
