PAX BYOC Recap: Minecraft Edition!

Wow, I'm still coming down from my PAX high which has been prolonged due to my Minecraft sculpture ending up on the front page of Penny Arcade!!!111!!!!

Ok, deep breath. Let me start from the beginning.

This year at PAX instead of enforcing like I had been for the past year, I decided to just attend and get myself a seat at BYOC. Now, I was planning to get my zombie killin' on all weekend with some L4D2, but a couple of hours after PAX started on Friday someone made the mistake of telling me there was a sculpture contest going on in the BYOC minecraft creative server. My PAX was doomed from that moment. I spent the remainder of Friday and a bit of Saturday morning crafting the Twisp and Catsby that is so proudly displayed on PA right now. I won first place in that contest for developing a 3D sculpture while pretty much everyone else just made giant 2D images.

After being interviewed by 2 Player Productions for their Minecraft documentary (OMG!!!) I began working on my second project and present masterpiece, a replica of the International Space Station! Below are a few pics of both sculptures and a video of the finished ISS. Enjoy my obsession. =)
