Hear Me Roar

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.

The Science of LEGO

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!

The Thin White Duke

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!

“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”

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!

Motorized holographic mosaic of Halo’s Cortana

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.
