You know, there are only two things that scare me in this world. Monsters and dentists. Ok maybe spiders too but that’s besides the point. Fortunately for you and I, bricks.life.idea is here to remind us that the two can exist in harmony with this terrifying yet awesome creature. That smile. Those teeth. Now that’s a face only a mother, or a dentist, could love.
Surfing is already pretty rad, but combined with hot rods you end up with something totally tubular! Andrea Lattanzio has made a gnarly scene that makes me want to go hit the waves with a bunch of bros. Then I remember that I don't speak like a surfer dude and don't have a hotrod. At least I know I won't become shark food, right?
My old pal Kevin Ryhal, aka M<O><O>DSWIM, has come up with a truly unique mash-up! He's been creating all sorts of cool combos over the years, from Steampunk Gundams, to Darth Skeletor. But I just looked through his photostream to make sure. This is the first time he's gone for three genres in one. "Jarvis-san, bring the boilers to full power!"
I'm not sure if there's a name for the style with which ZiO Chao built this lovely Golden Gate Bridge, but I love it. It's the closest thing I can imagine to building a painting - like a mosaic, but with more detail, and more notably, true depth. The result is a unique piece of brick art that I imagine would look great in a frame.
Space. More specifically shipping stuff around in Space. These beautiful containers by Matt Rowntree just ooze class. I think they have a truly universal (see what I did there!) feel, easily at home in the gritty realm of Aliens or Star Wars, as well as the clinical world of 2001. Gonna have a go at some of these myself.
You may or may not know that I love trains. Big trains, little trains and Lego trains And most of all I love Lego trains in larger scales. This 750mm Narrow Gauge Locomotive from grubaluk described as a Lok 24 of the Jagsttalbahn is just lovely. Built in the old Home Maker scale and full of great detailing, especially around the boiler and the pistons, I would happily give this a home on my railway. I hope that this inspires train builders to create in larger scales!
