Grim things are going down in this kitchen nightmare by Jonah Schultz. The middle scene of a three-part story (you can find the first one here), we can see the malicious chef poisoning soup destined for the king’s table. I love the lighting choices here! It makes the scene feel small, and draws focus to our villain and his pot. All of the excellent details add further to this intimacy. The intricate stonework around the fireplace, the dimly-lit shelves in the back, and even the cute spring onions in the foreground set the stage of a royal kitchen gone awry. I can’t wait to see how this concludes!
2020 has been a hard year for everyone, and some of us have put on a few extra quarantine pounds. Ian Hou’s LEGO Santa Claus is no exception, as evidenced by the quarter round bricks shaping his belly. It seems that Jolly ole Saint Nick misjudged how many milk and cookies he’d been eating.
Now a previously comfortable slide down a chimney is a bit more than a tight squeeze! I think Santa jumped in pretty fast and built up some speed too because of the angle on those hinged bricks tell me chunks of that chimney are flying off pretty quickly. And I think he’s noticed too, the 1×3 arches forming his mouth look like his “Ho! Ho! Ho!” has turned into an “Oh! Ow! Ow!”
