I thought this was a fitting follow-up post to Andrew’s, considering John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s Bed-Ins for Peace. The appropriateness of the subject matter aside, Arthur Gugik’s use of printed tiles is a really unique technique to create a LEGO mosaic, and one that adds a subtle colour variation.
I’ve seen a lot of unusual things built out of LEGO, but I do believe this is the first time I’ve seen a scientific diagram. TheBrickAvenger made this lovely illustration demonstrating the way the greenhouse effect works, and I must say, I’d probably have paid more attention in science classes if all the illustrations were done in this manner!
Admittedly, I’m not a big David Bowie fan (the extent of my knowledge involves puppets and tight pants). This mosaic by Adam Myers, though, caught my eye. I liked the simplicity of the image itself, with the high-contrast in black and white.
And I LOVE the technique using layered clear plates!
Dave Shaddix just finished this mosaic in honor of Buzz Aldrin’s recenly celebrated 83rd birthday. This is a great rendition of an iconic photograph. For the few who don’t know who or what is in the picture, it is a picture that Neil Armstrong took of Buzz Aldrin during the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969. The LEM and Neil Armstrong are reflected in the visor of Buzz Aldrin’s spacesuit. Well done, Dave, I love it!
To most of us a pile of bricks is just a mess that needs to be cleaned up, but Thorsten Bonsch (Xenomurphy) rearranged a pile of bricks into an artistic depiction of Spider-Man.
Well, she is at it again. Katie Walker has been incredibly busy this year but now she is back to doing what she does best…blowing my mind. This mosaic is merely a “study”, by which she probably means that she is going to do something even more incredible with this later on. Awesome!
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!
Many thanks to Katie Walker for the heads up.
Here is a little mosiac that I worked up this week. As some of our readers know, I’ve been dabbling in mosaics for the last year. This one is based on the 60’s version of the Batman logo as I am planning to attend Emerald City Comic Con next year and Adam West will be there. The plan is to have him sign it. Wish me luck!
