Sometimes unconventional construction leads to spectacular results. Take this mosaic by builder Ultron32 for instance, a pretty large percentage of the parts used here are held in place by friction only. And while that may not be great for gravity on occasion, I think you’ll agree it’s pretty excellent for capturing a likeness.
It always makes me happy when I see a post from a builder we haven’t heard from in a while, especially when I can call that builder a friend. J.B.F. took a bit of a hiatus from building, but is back with a vengeance with these powerful pieces he’s calling My Own Propaganda. Thought provoking images of the tumultuous world we live in.
While adult me finds the womanizing and chauvinistic overtones a bit unsettling (we’ve come so far, sort of) I’m still a bond fan. And while this piece by JS_Ninjnerd depicts MI6’s most infamous agent as a silhouette, I’m choosing to see him as my personal favorite Bond, Sean Connery. And admit it, the theme song is in your head now huh? It’s in mine, and it’s totally agreeable.
Any kid that owned a Gameboy in the late 90's (so let's face it, most) recognizes these guys, it's the trainers from Pokemon Red and Blue, the ubiquitous monster catching role-playing game. It gives me great pleasure to present these as they come from a builder you might have heard of, Mr Kevin Hinkle himself. It's good to see you dabbling with the bricks Kevin.
I remember the first time I saw The Matrix. It was during the original theatrical release, and I went in cold. I don't even recall seeing a commercial for it. I went with a group from work, we had been crunching on a project and needed a little recreation, we got it. We all left the theater charged up for stylized storytelling, cutting edge effects and *gasp* an original idea. I don't care much for the sequels, but the original still holds up, it's an amazing little bit of filmmaking. This likeness of the hero by cmaddison just makes me want to watch it again.
LEGO as an art medium has no limits, none. It can be blocky and colorful, contoured and realistic or clean and stark. These stags by Grantmasters could hang in any pub, huntsman club or study and I'm guessing most people wouldn't even notice they're brick-built, at least not at first. They're elegant and regal, like the beasts they convey.
