Calgary Expo Mosaics

Just a quick post tonight, I've been a bit busy building lately, and wanted to get these up before Katie has to, and I feel guilty about it. So, without further delay, a few of the pieces I've built for the 2013 Calgary Expo.



 First up, added the Hermes Conrad to make the "Futurama Triptych", with Brickwares Jr Jr providing scale, and rocking the Buzz Lightyear Hoodie.



 Next up is a Malcom Reynolds mosaic, signed by Nathan Fillion. "I Aim To Misbehave."

Nathan Fillion poses with the piece, to the cheers from the autograph line.




And finally, A Game of Thrones Lannister Crest. This one is signed by Peter Dinklage. It simply reads "To Dave: Brilliant".

Cobblestone Technique!

So here is a wonderful technique if you, like us, have stood at the PaB and wondered what would anyone do with thousands of 1x1 vertical clips...

And as we are often looking for ways of incorporating mosaics into mocs, this cobblestone pattern by
Tommy M. (Eklund!) is perfect.


We'd love to see people incorporate this kind of detail throughout their winding castle streets, or steampunk villas. :)

Mosaics Roundup -- April 21 edition

A few mosaics I've come across recently:


Bruce found this lovely painting, called "Plum blossom in early spring", by Rack Haung (rack911).

Rack also has this cute little snake in honor of the Year of the Snake:

Paul Toxopeus made portraits of the new king and queen of the Netherlands, King Willem Alexander and queen Maxima.

And Arthur Gugick (torgugick) made a decorated tile mosaic of John Lennon, which contains about 4000 tiles:

Arthur also posted this LEGO version of The Scream back in January, which I somehow managed to forget to post at the time:

Mosaics Round-Up

I think when I continue to post here, it will be a quicker sort of post, more of a round-up of mosaics instead of a focus on just one. 

First off:  HispaBrick Magazine Issue 016 is out.  Free LEGO magazine!  Yay!  You can find it here:

Secondly, mosaics:

 I don't think I ever posted Josh Wedin's cool mosaic of Captain Picard.  I was waiting till he got it signed by Patrick Stewart at the Emerald City ComiCon.

Ryan H. (eldeeem) made a cute little Pikachu, and had to wait for the snow to melt before photographing it outside:

Robin Sather, Dave Ware, and the people of Calgary built this 5 ft. x 6.5 ft. mosaic "Visions of Calgary": 

Visions of Calgary



And I thought this "wall sculpture" by Joshua (Igginz) seemed pretty cool.





And finally, check out this awesomely decayed sign that Evan B. (Lego Junkie) made for his Call of Duty diorama:
