So you’ve probably noticed I have been absent for the past week. But as there is a little less than a week till the Emerald City Comicon (ECCC) and two weeks till BricksCascade, I’ve been very, very busy getting ready for both shows stocking up on hundreds of keychains, necklaces, etc.
I also wanted to create something specifically for ECCC. And what better than the ECCC logo?
As always with my mosaics I incorporated a lot of tricks to get just the look I wanted and even invented a few new ones.
If you look at the close ups, you can see parts that are upside-down and sideways
And though it looks like they are just stuck on, the letters do have at least one connection point. Now since this is not glued, the letters also have some double stick tape to make sure they keep in place. Especially as I travel — handy tip, double stick tape is your friend.
Of course I will be bubble wrapping this tightly as well.
For those that are wondering, the mosaic is 2 x 2 ft square. So not on the small side. And it took me about a week to design and build.
I also came up with another Doctor Who design — his ever present sonic screwdriver.
Since they revived the show there have been two variations — a blue one and a green one. Now they of course do look more different than just the tips, but when you are going for one that is only an inch long you can only do so much. For those who can’t make it to either show they are available online at my Folded Fancy Creations Etsy shop.
I find it somewhat ironic that a lightsaber handle is used for the design. Who knows, maybe the Doctor is also a Jedi.
