We recently shared with you some art that had been sent to us by our beloved Customers. HostGator employees have also been known to create some works of art around the offices as well… sometimes when no one else is looking. Before we begin our actual Gator-created art tour, I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you our Lego sign that is currently displayed in our Houston office. The sign was created by well-known artist Nathan Sawaya. I don’t know if the picture does it justice, but it’s a truly impressive piece of Lego craftsmanship:
