Lego – Apologies in Advance – MK Stangeland Jr.

(The entirety of this page should be done in a LEGO-esque art style. That is to say, everything should be drawn as if it were made out of appropriate Lego pieces.)

(8 Panels)

Panel 1: MK STANGELAND JR (seen here as a Lego minifigure) sits in front of his computer at his desk.

STANGELAND (1): Well I done goofed.

STANGELAND (2): And in about the most embarrassing way possible.

Panel 2: Similar to PANEL 1. STANGELAND looks like he’s panicking a little.

STANGELAND (1): I have no idea what to do for a script and I have to post one tomorrow.

STANGELAND (2): And it was my own dang pick this week, too!

Panel 3: STANGELAND looks like he’s deep in thought.

STANGELAND (1): How do I get out of this problem?

STANGELAND (2): Think think think…

Panel 4: STANGELAND has an idea, and looks excited about it.

Panel 5: Small montage of STANGELAND building something.

SFX: Click click click click click

Panel 6: Close up on STANGELAND’s face as he looks at what he’s built. There’s a glimmer of hope that his idea has worked.

Panel 7: Same as PANEL 7, but with a significantly less-thrilled look on his face.

Panel 8: STANGELAND stands in front of a wall of Lego bricks with the words “A SCRIPT” built into it.

STANGELAND: I have no idea why I expected that idea to have any other possible result.



  1. Ah, writer's block- the gift that keeps on giving... what elevates is the child-like nature ofthe piece, from the Winnie-the-Pooh style thinking panel, to the Ta-daa moment at the end, despite the frustration of the situation, a bit of glee comes thru. Fun piece...

  2. Writer's LEGO block, you might say. HA.

    It's still a very funny page, with great visuals and an (ironically) creative punchline.
