I'm a little late in posting this, but add my condolences to the family and friends of Nate Nielson. Nate was better known as Nnenn, a giant in the online LEGO community. I had really never taken notice of his name, but I had definitely noticed his work. So many others had as well, and when the news came out that he had died in a car accident earlier this month, we all felt a loss. There are tributes to him at Swooshable, Metafilter and The Brothers Brick.
Here is perhaps my favorite of his creations. Just click below to bring it to full size and gape at the artistry. This man will truly be missed.
