Chris McVeigh is an author, illustrator, photographer and Lego builder

currently living in Halifax, NS.


He got his start in photography in 2007, when a friend insisted that he purchase a digital SLR. Chris was a natural, applying the same principles to photography as he does to his design work.


He now excels at creating clever, quirky and often comical pictures that employ everything from Lego minifigures to backyard wildlife (and sometimes both). Chris’s photography has been featured all over the Internet, including contracted work for both Gizmodo.com and Esquire.


In addition to photography, Chris is a talented illustrator who has created artwork for several major advertising campaigns, including many of Microsoft’s online campaigns from 2006-2009. Chris is also an accomplished technical writer, who started his own digital magazine in the early days of the Internet. He has regularly contributed to Macworld.


In recent years, Chris’s attention has turned to Lego. He now spends much of his time designing models and developing building guides, which he offers freely (for personal use only) via this website.
