    Scruffy Mynxbane says:

    "In the Lego world there seem to be various species of builder: model builders; guys who are creating their own little worlds to conquer or control; sci-fanatics that just got tired of waiting for space travel and flying cars and decided to build their own. There's even a smattering of mathematical geniuses studying the little bricks scientifically. Then there's Shannon.

    Shannon is an artist who, i think, out of some deep seated nostalgia for the toys of his youth, chose Lego as his medium. And since then has been attacking them like Pollack or Van Gogh attacked canvas. He didn't throw away the rule book, he doesn't even seem to know there ever was one. He's not trying to recreate something palpable he saw or imagined. He's trying to express something he felt.

    Either that or he's just kooky 'cause Australia is upside-down and all the blood is constantly rushing to his head."

    "Extremely creative, Shannon has a totally different take and what a LEGO model should be. His style is unique and yet nostalgic at the same time, and when you'r explaining things in contradictory terms you know it has to be either art or brilliant or both."

    "Well I haven't come up with a testimonial for ShannO yet but he said he'll hook me up with Emily Browning if I did, All I need to do is rub his lustrous head & hopefully some of his building greatness will shine on me, or cause dandruff, either way it's a win! ;D"
