OneLUG is already known for incredible Lord of the Rings creations. Our readers may remember The Last March of the Ents that they did last year. These three mosaics, depicting the heraldry of Gondor, Rohan and the Uruk-hai, are exceptional.
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!
Matt De Lanoy’s latest mosaic shows off the infamous flamethrower from Team Fortress 2 and his delightfully insane Pyrovision, where he lives in a world quite his own.
Dave Ware (BrickWares) just posted this absolutely awesome Superman mosaic. All I can say is WOW!
…and I have to be honest, when I first saw the thumbnail pop up in my flickr contact feed this morning I didn’t click on it because I really didn’t think it was LEGO. Boy am I glad I clicked on it now!
I recently finished these two mosaics and was able to display them at Emerald City Comic Con this last weekend. They are my first mosaics but won’t be my last, as they were much more fun than I was expecting. I guess there is something to be said for building outside your comfort zone, eh?
I was also able to meet Rob Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche, the voice talent behind Pinky & The Brain, and get them to sign the mosaic. Unfortunately, Christopher Lloyd had to cancel or I would have snagged his autograph too. Oh well…you can’t win them all!
