Epic Mario

Zachary Pollock has developed a Kickstarter project, hoping to raise funds for a super-sized Super Mario mosaic.  Specifically, it would picture the entirety of level 1-1 from Super Mario Brothers.  Here is a small section of the mosaic (only 1/60th the size of what the final product would be): 




The final mosaic would be over 6 feet tall and an amazing 90 feet long, and would contain about 780,000 studs.  It would be on display at various conventions throughout the next year.

You can find out more information about this project at Zachary's Kickstarter site or his blog.  Kickstarter projects employ an all-or-nothing funding system.  This project will be funded if it raises $26,400 by May 10.

Thanks to Zipblock for the heads up. 

(Also, my apologies for the lack of recent posts.  I've been involved in some projects that are taking up a lot of my time.)

LEGO Universe Faction Leaders Mosaic

I discovered a new-to-me LEGO blog called "The Luprechaun:  A LEGO Universe Refugee's Outpost", and they had an interesting post about a mosaic of the faction leaders from LEGO universe.

I'd seen some pictures on flickr, but didn't have any of the backstory.  Apparently it was done by model designers for the LEGO Universe program.  The post on The Luprechaun includes a description of the building process by Classicsmiley, who was involved in the build.  It is interesting, and I recommend checking it out. 

Here's the set by Classicsmiley on flickr.

Meditation

Martin J. (MorsLEGO) used headlight brick spiraling patterns to make this very peaceful scene.

I love how the borders pull the different sections into one unified whole, and the minifig is just lovely.  Martin says this was his first real try at a mosaic.  I notice that he has since incorporated more mosaics into his work, including this rather humorous scene of a royal bathroom.   Keep up the good work!

A Fine Specimen

Flickr user mahjqa designed this amazing fossil mosaic for Steve Demlow, who built it as part of a larger city display.

It's a very clever way to incorporate a large mosaic into a three-dimensional creation, and the execution was very well done.  Mahjqa posted a link to a discussion of the technique used for the design.  You can see more of Mahjqa's fine mosaics in this set.
