It’s been an epic first week up in Brisbane for our new Wonders of the World exhibition! It was both exhilarating and slightly frightening to show all the models we’ve been working on for over a year to the public for the first time. But seeing the looks on the faces of the kids ( […]
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.
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.
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.
A huge thanks to everyone that came along to the Brickman Experience in Melbourne.
I had a lot of feedback that everyone had a great time, there was lots of amazing building happening!
For the first time ever you are welcome to come along and experience my complete collection of LEGO models, along with those of my colleagues the other LEGO Certified professionals who have each created a unique piece for the show.
Come and join in the fun as there is plenty of hands on activities where ill be getting you to help build some giant LEGO models and masterpieces.
Ive got a stack of new stuff never seen in public before so for your only chance to see them come along!
Its footy finals!
Head on down to the MYER emporium store in Melbourne to check out our latest mega model, the 70,000 brick LEGO MCG on grand final day.
There is lots of hidden gems in this model which took over 3 weeks to build.
Head over to my flickr Gallery for a closer look.
I’ve always wanted to fly a plane, but I never did manage to get my pilots license, however that didn’t stop me from building the Pilatus P-9 from the RAAF’s acrobatic Roulettes.
(Complete with working propeller!)
Whilst this colourful hot air balloon looks pretty it certainly was no easy build, its crazy shape along with colour changes made it one of the more difficult things we have ever built.
(Combine that with the fact that it is designed to be hung from above!)
Up at the Perc Tucker Gallery in Townsville my latest mystery mosaic has just been finished.
I’ve always wanted to do this picture in LEGO, and with 23 different colours and just under 50,000 bricks, it was unquestionably one of the most complex ones I have ever done! (Here is the original next to it for reference!)
Pop by the gallery to check it out and enjoy the lots of other activities there.
Here’s a couple of small models I have made for a department store in Sydney.
The timing is rather ironic as I am going to be in Sydney from the 20th to the 29th of April
at the Sydney Brick show. Make sure you come along and say G’day.
Here’s the website, where you can buy tickets online.
Here’s an interesting one, I had to make a city scene for a photoshoot, I sort of modelled it on New York, but added a few more Aussie Details to it.
here’s my favourite view of the city. (For full detailed shots check out my flickr page)
Bonus points if you can guess what TV show the restaurant was in.
Here’s a 3D”ish” mosaic I completed for a company in Sydney.
The “greebling” effect works pretty well on mosaics, it adds depth and detail to an otherwise plain logo.
I was recently contacted by a lady who wanted a mosaic done of her family, and being super cool she didn’t mind if I played around with a bit of colour.
Inspired by Andy Warhol; “Four Square” brings a bit of life to their new family portrait.
Another Time lapse Mosaic, this time a proof of concept for the ABC. Thier Kids logo done in medium scale, some of the details are not correct but i wanted to show how it would and could look when done, it does of course need correct lighting and some colour adjustement, but none the less […]
