While I’m obligated every time I highlight graffiti to say that I don’t condone vandalism, I love to see great street art. This photo by clockity shows the artist’s progress as he squeezes Wolverine in between some larger pieces.
Have any of our readers in Brighton seen this in person? Know who the artist is?
If you are familiar with Mike Yoder at all, then you know that he not only builds a mean LEGO spaceship, but he is also a gifted painter. Well Mike certainly has proven both of these points with his latest project…an acrylic on canvas painting of his Calamity Jane starship.
I don’t recall a spaceship ever looking so beautiful.
Colorful, whimsical, and now practical, these are the words to describe Tyler’s (Legohaulic) Christmas present for his sister. The robot parts are pinned to the backboard and can be rearranged to create endless possibilities.
Japanese artist Azuma Makoto usually creates his botanically themed pieces from real plants, but occasionally dabbles with materials as diverse as Astroturf and LEGO. One of his latest pieces is a gorgeous recreation of a bonsai pine tree built from bricks.
We featured the LEGO-inspired artwork of the Surma Bros. back in June. Marcin and Przemek post stylized versions of classic LEGO sets every Sunday.
LEGO fans have bemoaned the dearth of female LEGO minifigs over the years. In the past, each LEGO theme usually included just one woman — a world I wouldn’t want to live in, but appealing to 9-year-old boys, I suppose. One of the Surma Bros’ latest drawings features all of the ladies of the LEGO Space themes over the years, including Classic Space, M-Tron, Exploriens, and Ice Planet 2002.
Speaking of Ice Planet 2002, Marcin and Przemek also posted a beautiful poster highlighting this much-maligned and belatedly loved theme.
My favorite quote from H.P. Lovecraft inspired this surrealist work. The quote goes like this: “the blind cosmos grinds aimlessly on from nothing to something and from something back to nothing again, neither heeding nor knowing the wishes or existence of the minds that flicker for a second now and then in the darkness.”
You can buy this creation from Creations for Charity, and there’s only 5 days left before the store closes for this year!
We have posted a lot of album covers over the years but this particular one, by Isaac Mazer is one of the best. The fact that he was able to get the perspective so perfect is amazing. It is so good that I didn’t realize it was actually a mosaic…incredible!
