Shannon Young's delightful "Shannonia" is a microscale LEGO city that recently underwent some urban expansion, finding itself suddenly next to an ocean. I really, really love this project. It's like a real world Eboy poster.
I may have to rip off Shannon's idea, as this really appeals to my microburst OCD inclinations. If I ever needed to take a little break during the day I could construct a new tower or do some landscaping. I'd have to order a bunch of ocean blue plates!
