About Me and My Photos
I'm a writer who enjoys building things with LEGO bricks, taking pictures of them, and sharing them here on Flickr. I also enjoy taking pictures of my dogs and places I've visited. I don't consider myself a particularly serious photographer, though I appreciate a good photo when I see one, and try my best to take great pictures myself.
I run a LEGO website called The Brothers Brick. That means some of the photos in my photostream are official LEGO set photos that the LEGO Group has given me permission to share.
Other Random Thoughts
My LEGO designs generally aren't for sale.
Please don't invite me to groups for which a well-established alternative already exists on Flickr.
I don't trade with strangers, because sharing that kind of contact information with strangers isn't safe. If you ask, I'll probably block you.
Feel free to recreate any LEGO designs you see in my photostream (with or without credit; I don't care), but do not steal my pictures.

"Andrew is truly the Man behind the Curtain. The Wizard of our Oz. The Willie Wonka of our Chocolate Factory.
All that AND someone once asked for my autograph simply because I knew him."
2nd June, 2011
"i dig your lego creations. awesome creativity, and you definitely have an eye for creating lego-ized versions of real people."

"'I got all the pants' -Andrew"
19th October, 2009
"He's not so bad. And he's my brother, so I have to put up with him."
23rd June, 2009
"Andrew's one of the first customizers I remember seeing online after my DAs, and is one of the nicest guys I've (not in real life) met. ;) His love for purist minifigs is refreshing, and how can you not like his TBB blog?"
29th May, 2009
"Andrew knows his way around the Brick (especially the venerable Minifig) quite well indeed. He's quite prolific, too. I suggest you set aside a significant amount of time for browsing his stuff."
16th September, 2008
Joriel "Joz" Jimenez says:
"Andrew, the Dunechaser, is such a nice character. For someone with a seemingly pretty busy schedule of affairs he always takes the time to post a comment that contributes to a conversation with authority and clarity - which is a good thing - especially with news about our "addictive little hobby".
I really enjoy his stream, and his photographs are of top quality that keeps you focused on the subject with room to daydream.
If you're a fan Lego, Lego minifigs and Dogs then I say :
"Add this guy to your contacts!" (If you haven't already of course!)
He's definitely the older brother to The Brick and a good Flickrite.

"Internationally acclaimed Legomaniac deluxe!
I bow to your creativeness."
21st August, 2008
"While we're all building with bricks, this fine gentleman is building a community"
14th August, 2008
"Thats awesome! Thanks for the add, your Brothers Brick Blog was one of the reasons I got back into Lego after all these years! Awesome builds too!"
15th June, 2008
"I love the blog he runs and he makes amazing minifigs"
14th April, 2008
"This guy chases Dunes. I mean how awesome is that? He's the Master of Minifigs."
11th April, 2008
"Respect. This guy has the eagle eyes for minifigs."
23rd December, 2007
" An amazing creator, he is an artist of Legos, especially minifigures. Most (or all) of his minifigures are made in a purist fashion. He has so many photos, all worth seeing."
3rd December, 2007
"Andrew is a brilliant yet misguided soul; my opposite perhaps. Instead of chasing eternal dreams of SNOT and real grey he follows the path of the minifigure. His redemption comes via knowledge of the Bellevue LEGO Store area..."

<(Chris B)> says:
"his minifigs are RAD
his blog is also cool"
18th December, 2006
"Dunechaser is the master of all things minifig-related, and for this should be worshipped and adored."
