Sculpture lego projects
I’m back in sunny Townsville for the weekend! This time I’m with the Towers of Tomorrow exhibition me and my team built a few years ago, which includes some of the toughest models I’ve ever built of the many of the world’s tallest buildings! The exhibit also includes hundreds of thousands of bricks visitors can use to build their own model. So if you’re in North Queensland or heading there over the next few months, drop by and check them out!
My first LEGO nude! Here’s a side by side of the classic Venus de Medici, a marble sculpture depicting the Greek goddess of love Aphrodite and my LEGO version. The Venus de Medici model is displayed at the Nicholson Museum in Sydney University as part of their Alpha & Omega exhibition opening soon.
Here is the giant Clay Moorington from LEGO NEXO Knights which we made for the LEGO booth at toyfair.
The funny part is he was built by Clay Mellington – pictured
Coincidence? Likeness? You be the judge. – Just remember our Clay Mellington came first.
If you want to check him out he will be at Fountain gate shopping centre in Melbourne April 9 and 10 for the free LEGO Nexo knights event.
We received a huge number of signed bricks from the last Brick Man Experience show in Brisbane and as with the Melbourne & Sydney shows we’ve used the bricks to build an iconic Australian animal. Behold the Brisbane shark Signature Build!
We call him Mick.
Down at the Brickman HQ, for years we have been saying we would love an office pet.
One we could love, look after, be a companion with and generally have fun playing with.
However nobody liked the idea of having to feed and do all the looking after business!
So we compromised! and ended up with “Brutus”, be careful though his fangs are razor sharp!
Last month we, along with the LEGO US model shop and 3 other LEGO Certified Professionals from around the world had the privilege of building models for the Star Wars movie premiere. Our models were for the Shanghai red carpet, whilst my Mandarin is poor, by all accounts people were very happy with them!
I’d like to thank everyone who came along to Brickvention in Melbourne over the 16th and 17th of January and helped us build one of the worlds largest LEGO classic space sets at 64 times its normal size! Using over 550,000 bricks, we finished it with a few hours to spare at 3pm on Sunday.
Occasionally we build something that tops our usual standard of awesome, and occasionally we get to play with really cool stuff, like Dr Who.
I remember as a kid watching the Doctor and his adventures around the galaxy, never for one minute did I think I’d ever get to build a life sized Tardis out of LEGO though!
Well it has literally been ages since I last posted anything, but rest assured, we have not been resting, The months of November and December will see some of the biggest and best creations we have ever made leave our workshop and head out into the wild world for you to enjoy.
