ENID, Oklahoma -

Artwork comes in many forms. For one Oklahoma artist, his work has become a ticket to adventure.

“It's not Oklahoma City or Tulsa, but we have a lot going on.”

Few are prouder of Enid than Carl Fielder.

“The very first one ever was a Lego man and it had a sign that that said I hear downtown.”

Even if the artist has been known to “deface” his hometown…

“It builds the city up. It builds pride in your city.”

Fielder's easily removable posters of Enid's own have also graced it's streets over the years.

“I put it at the corner of grand and broad.”

And police officer Cal Palmer killed in the 1930, which was so well like by the police chief a version on canvas now hangs at the station.

But one theme is more visible than the rest.

“I started the Lego man because it was an iconic image.”

Years ago, Fielder anomalously starting leaving the Lego man mug around town.

“We've down about 300 magnets since day one.”

The artwork garnered Felder the nickname "Enid Lego builder"

“This was Oktoberfest.”

Shortly after revealing ELB's true identity, Fielder stopped painting to spend more time with family. But now he is spraying again, with more motivation.

“Take an adventure in your city...explore your own city.”

And ELB will get your started......

“We watched as he planted a new piece.....and posted the pic for the clue online.”

Ironically, a guy with the first name "Toy" showed up six minutes later.

“I don't know they are cool to have. I've seen them around. I've never gotten one.”

This hunt includes a rare meeting with the artist himself.

“He's usually in the garage plotting more ways to showcase the city he loves.”

“It's fun. It's enjoyable.”
