Big project in the works.

September 16, 2008

Hi everyone. I know I haven’t been as consistent with writing lately. And for that I apologize. I’ve been super, super busy working on a project for a big client. I won’t go into details here, at least until the event has happened. But what I will say is that I am making a LEGO mosaic, one of the largest that I’ve ever done and certainly the most complicated. I’ll also add that it is for a certain video game that is coming out next week.

I know, pretty vague. But trust me, its really really cool. To give you a taste of what I’ve already done in LEGO mosaic other than the LEGO logo I just did. Here is a pic of my Carlsbad Flower Fields Logo that I did a few years back at LEGOLAND California.

It was tricky getting the bricks to look like the smooth, almost brush-like strokes of the leaves and the swirls of the flowers. It took me about 40 hours to create this model. And I remember burning the midnight oil a tad just to get this finished on time. (The picture looks better on Brickshelf, because it isn’t squished.)

The mosaic I’m currently working on, I’ve been burning a lot of midnight and early hours oil just to get it done on time. As soon as the event is finished I’ll post all about the mosaic. You’ll have to wait a bit, but trust me, its totally worth it.

Oh, and if I don’t post too much in the next few days or so, its because I’m working on this model. πŸ˜‰
