Schmutzli is his slightly less grim counterpart from Switzerland (I learned about him from watching the Rick Steve's Europe Christmas special). After switching bad children I’d like to think they meet up for gingerbread and mulled wine at their local Christmas market.

As you may have noticed, I haven't been posting on this blog very often. I'm trying to regularly post drawings on my Tumblr blog, and I tweet nonsense every day on Twitter.

This weekend I went through my bins of 25-yr-old Lego bricks, and my daughter and I re-built this old set. My original instructions were missing, but I found them online. This is set 6066 Camouflaged Outpost from 1987. It has lots of cool secret doorways.
It turns out my old Forestmen Lego minifigures are worth a small fortune. According to eBay they sell for about 5 bucks each!
My kids really enjoy playing with Legos, so we plan on getting into building a Medieval / Fantasy village and maybe playing some tabletop games with the figures.
