Moko claims never to have read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (as it so happens, I’m reading it right now), but that doesn’t stop him from building a wonderfully evocative version of Alice and the White Rabbit based on nothing more than a few image searches on the web.
Moko says that Alice’s hair was especially hard and that he had to rebuild it a couple times. The extra effort has certainly resulted in some naturally flowing hair.
TBB newcomer David Alexander Smith has a unique style of building that proves (once again) that you don’t need a million parts to create something original or make an impact on the hobby. David makes excellent use of negative space in his rendition of everyone’s favorite super-spy. Three cheers for minimalism.
Diamond Dave Shaddix hopes you are, and he’s ready to get you in the mood with this outstanding sculpture of an Arizona Cardinal’s helmet. Lucky Dave was commissioned by the NFL franchise to build both the helmet and a mosaic for the upcoming season. While it doesn’t quite match the cool-factor of Dave’s other high-vis commission from world-famous illusionist David Copperfield, it is impressive nonetheless.
Although the dome-protector won't save you from concussions, it is quite wearable. If you want to check out the helmet, sans Dave, it will be ensconced in the Arizona Cardinals HQ in Tempe.
Once again, constant reader, it has been a pleasure being your weekend DJ. The request line and the long-distance dedication line will be open all week. Until then, enjoy one more tune, courtesy of that pesky Joel Baker. Joel claims the smurf vomit is part of some outlandish structure called the ‘Brick River’ that leads to a play area at the new LEGOLAND Hotel at LEGOLAND California. That’s a likely story.
See you at the fights next Friday.
The Iron Builder contest between Chris Maddison (cmaddison) and Bruce Lowell (brucey_wan) is producing some absolute LEGO gems. Chris’ depiction of Sub Zero‘s fatality is particularly timely for Australia, where Mortal Kombat 9 is finally available after a change to the censorship laws.
While my own eyes are pulled more to the tugboat, Schfio‘s “LEGO x Rubber Duck Project” is clearly all about the duck. And you can’t argue with Sesame Street.
We blogged Russian builder Vasil Vasil’s (Silvavasil) cool LEGO bicycle last month, but now he’s back with a super cool old-school motorcycle. I love how it looks like a transparent human anatomy model, with all the organs and veins showing in different colors.
It would seem that Matt Bace (mmbace) and I think along similar lines. Just yesterday I was looking up images for the tin soldiers from the Nutcracker Ballet. Today I spotted this fantastic likeness in my Flickr stream.
Ekoww would like to introduce you to “Junior“, the latest additon to his Folklore, Myth and Superstition series. Although the face may be something that only a mother can love, the sculptural talent of the builder is undeniable.
Nick Barrett built a Lego version of a local sculpture in Newbury, Berkshire, UK. All the hinges, SNOT, and single stud connections must make this a fragile model, but at least it very well mimics the source.
