Brickworld 2014 is all over! I had a great time meeting new faces and reconnecting (heheheh...get it?) with old ones. I can't wait for next year. The following is all the mosaics I could find Sunday morning. Photography is just as bad as previous years, but hopefully it's not bad enough to scare you away.
NOW! onto the featured presentation:
built this small advertisement for our Facebook page for his Town display.
"Boo" mosaic as a part of a super-special-secret collab I was a part
of. More on that collab to come (as well as a post on the mosaic).
made a map of Westeros from Game of Thrones.
made the annual Brickworld mural. There was a backside. I just sadly, forgot to capture it.
Here were a couple KLUG
logos, as well as a QR Code. Not sure who built 'em.
Brought a ton of mosaics this year. Kicking it off, here are a few
superheroes: Iron Man (in Mega Man form), The Thing, and Deadpool.
And here's one by Abbie Bocan of Rosie the Riveter
There were also a few characters made, including grumpy cat.
The very best mosaic at all of Brickworld was the Sistine Chapel. The technique and beauty was just astonishing. It was nominated for best artwork, but was (in my opinion) robbed and should have won.
This M-Tron Logo was spotted a top of a tower as a part of the M-Tron collaboration.
Tagger by Sandy San Miguel.
Identity Crisis by Brandon Obert.
I am Alive by Brandon Obert.
Dragon's Lair by Sharon Vance
. Here's some fun facts that were displayed nearby.
- "This mosaic is completely original, the artist first drew the picture then started laying out Lego bricks to make an outline from the picture. No computer was used in the making of the mosaic."
- "There are approximately 200,000 Lego pieces used and took about 4 months to make."
- "This mosaic has been chosen for the 'Grand Rapids Art Prize' which takes place at the end of September. This is the most prestigious art contest in the world with over $500,000 in prizes awarded. Half of the awards are done by public vote so please consider voting for the first ever Lego artwork in the contest!"
