Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I have not yet made it to the third installment of Mr. Martin’s epic tale. I cannot claim to have seen any of this season yet, either (which I assure you is very sad). I can, however, tell you that I’ve been flickr-stalking Dave Ware (Brickwares) since I caught a sneak-peak of this mosaic on facebook.
Clearly my flickr-stalking paid off. Because this is just stunning, and regardless of your opinion of the Lannister family (or any of their words), you can certainly take a moment to appreciate this mosaic.
Peter Dinklage did.
If you lean more towards the sci-fi end of the spectrum, Dave’s got something for you, too.
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!
Sean and Steph Mayo are ever so innovative in their builds. They created a mosaic of Cortana from Halo featuring spinning columns of 1×1 transparent round plates. You have to see the video for the incredible effect. You can read more about this building technique on MosaicBricks.
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!
