Update: Irregular Posting and Future Plans

Hey everyone,

I'm really sorry how there are three or four days between posts. I try to blog at least once a day, but whenever I try to do so, something comes up, I have to get off the computer, etc. So I apologize, and I will try very hard to make it normal again.

So...That means that I also have some very exciting things happening. We're having another interview, I'm working on some rather long posts, and the blog is getting (and has gotten) a lot more "detail" or features to the blog.

Stick around everyone!

Thanks!
Casey

Now, I am the Master...

Now comes the part of the blog, where I keep my promises and have shameless self-promotion!!! Hahahaha, when I formatted the blog and wrote the first post, I mentioned that I might even post some of my own mosaics here on MosaicBricks. Now, here's when I'm doing it.

No really, I just recently posted my Darth Vader Magnet Mosaic, a 96x64 mosaic of the Dark Lord himself based off a magnet I got at a Darth Vader Minifigure Speed Build Event at the Lego Store.



Check it out on...Flickr, MOCpages, and Brickshelf (When approved).

Now back to regular blogging! XD

"Would you'a like to try'a some pep'er'oni' pizza?"

One of my favorite minifigs heads (A favorite list that goes on for forever :P ), has to be this face(Not the exact one, but close), and Brickshelf user, vedorias, makes a 32x32 version of said head. The minfig's smirk is great.



"Maybe you'da like some spaghetti instead, aahh?"

Blahhhh...Coffee!

I'll be honest. I hate coffee! The smell, the taste, the look...everything. But! MOCpages user, SherryCayHeyHeyHey is working on a big 96x96 Lego Mosaic of a certain coffeehouse chain. It could just change my mind...



It's only one-fourth of the way done, but we will continue to follow its development! Pretty neat!

Schools is in Session!

School is coming up fast! I go back in around 2 weeks. One such class I'm taking is Geography. One of my favorites. Brickshelf user, Supersteen, creates a massive 192x192 mosaic of the continent of Europe for a "local LEGO event". Seems appropriate. =)



Better finish all Lego projects before the madness begins. XD

Mosaics at Brickfair 2010: Kopaka and Onua (Bionicle!)

The the past weekend (Aug. 5-8th 2010), another Lego fan convention took place out side of Washington, D.C. Brickfair! And although I haven't been able to look through all photos, there was something that caught my eye on BZPower.com.

Now most of Lego community (Most), AFOLs and TFOLs, usually don't care for Bionicle. I'm not saying that they hate it, but most of them don't like it because it's a totally different entity from the original Lego system, and the mechanics of how it functions are some times confusing. (But, there's a respect that goes into the awesome Bionicle creations that are made from only System builders, I might add).
Growing up the Bionicle myself, it's very near and dear to my heart. I remember when my older brother and I got the six original toa for Christmas from our grandparents one year.

But even you don't care for it, or love it, you'll definitely like the two Bionicle mosaics that were made for Brickfair!

Two fairly large ones were made of the six original "toa", Kopaka (Left) and Onua (Right).


Read all about them: here. I'm going to continue to look for mosaics from Brickfair, so look for future posts about them here, on MosaicBricks. =)

Hope. Change. Obama.

Flickr user, fentiman11 makes (what appears to be) a giant mosaic (almost 4 feet in height) of our 44th president on the cover of the Rolling Stones magazine.



Fentiman11 also made two other mosaics. Check them out here.
