But contrary to what your mother told you, some food is meant to be played with, as Matt Armstrong demonstrates with these cunningly crafted crops. From green onions to broccoli and avocados, Matt’s got your organic palate covered.
LEGO Sculpture models on The Brothers Brick | Page 3
It’s hard to define which LEGO models are sculptural and which are just a regular pile of bricks, but we know a good sculpture when we see one — even if it’s a funny cartoon character and not the Venus de Milo.
Andrew Lee (onosendai2600) builds one big bad mean looking samurai. He says it is because every good guy needs a worthy opponent from time to time…well those weren’t his exact words.
Ed Diment & others at Bright Bricks are apparently responsible for this half scale model of the Rolls Royce engine used in the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The model is comprised of over 152,000 pieces and was designed using actual CAD plans of the real thing. Weighing in at 677 lbs. (307 kg) it is only Continue reading →
We have already blogged Paul Hetherington’s (Brickbaron) beautiful Atlantis model, and now it turns out that it was actually only a WIP of even larger and more impressive creation. Poseidon is built for Vancouver Lego Club‘s Mythology exhibit at the Surrey Museum, running July through to September 15th 2012.
Is there anything Bruce Lowell (bruceywan) can’t make out of Lego Bricks? Again Bruce masterfully captures another iconic everyday object, and it looks delicious. I love the little touches, like the ice cream oozing out a bit at the bottom by the stick.
I’ll be honest, I’m not exactly sure what the story is behind this new creation by Barney Main (SlyOwl). I am sure, however, that it’s an amazing build. The level of detail is fantastic, and the household objects are rendered in LEGO perfectly. The chicken is full of great part usage and details, and the Continue reading →
H.Y. Leung (Mr.Attacki) appears to be relatively new on flickr, however, a quick Google search reveals that he has been on MOCpages for a while longer. But one thing for sure, these fantastic creations don’t appear to be getting the attention they deserve!! These are two of my favourites, but be sure to click through Continue reading →
Mike Doyle (!snap!) has just posted a rather amazing piece of art. The depressing and horrifying subject matter of this piece is almost intensified by the choice of medium…LEGO is after all associated with innocence and happiness. I will let the viewer interpret and reflect on its meaning on their own. Thanks to Jack for Continue reading →
When I first saw this bookend by Deborah Higdon I was suitably delighted by the cute design and well-crafted microscale train. And then I noticed the book.
Bruce Lowell (aka Bruceywan) is at it again, making more uncannily accurate models of familiar real-life objects. The latest thing he’s turned his hand to is that classic ubiquitous red wagon, the Radio Flyer, and it’s so crazily accurate, at a glance it just looks like a photo of the real thing.
There are many animal styles of Kung Fu, each of which was represented by a character in the movie Kung Fu Panda. Jack McKeen (madLEGOman) has built almost all of those characters out of his bricks. I think he’s done a fantastic job of creating expressive faces for all the mammals. The mantis model also Continue reading →
Back in 1985 you needed $4000 to buy the DynaTAC 8000X phone. Bruce Lowell’s (bruceywan) ABS version is a bit cheaper. Built for Iron Builder
Iain Heath (Ochre Jelly) brings us a lovely tribute to Queen on the 20th anniversary of Freddie Mercury’s death. The poise and action in this model are incredible.
I know we blog a lot of aurore&aube‘s dinosaurs. But that’s because they’re so good and so well photographed. Enjoy carnotaurus.
Cole Bl♠q routinely challenges the conceptions of how we use the Lego medium. Continuing his on-going theme of spray cans is his latest sculpture, a viscerally organic interpretation. It is striking and beautiful, in a way not often seen in Lego. It’s not purist–that is, the effect is not achieved with 100% unmodified Lego pieces–but Continue reading →
