Four Seasons

With the blazing heat of summer here to accompany us every step we make, it becomes hard to remember a time without sunburns and a constant desire for air conditioning. Luckily for us, roΙΙi is here to remind us of all the other wonderful seasons of the year in this fantastic series of micro builds. And let me tell you, the summer micro build really floats my boat if you know what I’m saying.

Amazing Summer

I don't like sand, it's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. But there's something about this summer scene by dvdliu that's really inviting, and I think I can make an exception. It makes me want to kick off my shoes and bathe myself in the wonderful summer sunshine, maybe even take a little dip in the water. At least I can enjoy this last bit of summer before work takes over.

Summer On The Beach

Is there anything more quintessentially "summer" than two kids building a sandcastle on the beach? Throw in some sideways glances at bikinis, inevitable sunburn, the "sand" in sandwich, at least one glob of tar on your foot, the smell of coconut oil and some Pringles, and you've got the whole picture. A brilliant scene from builder Mark of Falworth.

Foraois

Builder Pate-keetongu finishes up his "four seasons" project with this stunning beauty, Foraois (Forest in Irish). She represents summer, not tanning butter and convertibles summer, but nature. Her color scheme is directly inspired by the birch tree, with the white dress being the bark and her black arms being the branches. The cascade of greenery is my favorite part of this piece, and adds life and motion to it.

Summer Is Winding Down

It's been a full summer. I've cruised to Alaska, attended Brick Magic, saw Eddie Izzard, went camping, attended San Diego Comic Con, Went to Disneyland, saw some movies, made some movies and managed to not get sunburned (much). Now it's only a couple weeks before school starts and hotels lower their rates. But we can all enjoy this embodiment of summer in a single MOC by nobu_tary, and get out the tanning butter one more time.
