Creepily colorful LEGO skulls

David Hughes is building a series of wonderfully creepy LEGO skulls. They have a definite Mexican Day Of The Dead vibe going on with bold color choices and geometric patterns. Our hobby is generally dominated by minifig-scale models depicting scenes or vehicles — sometimes it makes for a pleasant change when we get these kind of larger-scale art pieces beautifully put together from good old-fashioned bricks.

The Edge: Step into a LEGO painting

It’s not often that I see a LEGO creation and think to myself “this is art.” But Lukasz Wiktorowicz‘s most recent build, “the Edge” certainly is art. Using both classic architecture and surrealist imagery, Lukasz created an absolutely stunning build. The proportions on this thing are spot on and the details are ridiculously, well, detailed. But what really pushes this build over the top is Lukasz’s out-of-the-box building techniques.

The Edge

Normally I’m a stickler for lining up LEGO bricks perfectly (90 or 180 degree angles only, people!). A little crease from a cattywampus brick in an otherwise smooth wall is a downright sin in my book. But Lukasz purposefully stacked the bricks in his four pillars all askew and the resulting texture is fantastic! Another creative feature of this build is the base. When I accumulate a boxful of seemingly useless bricks, I shove them to the back of my shelf and forget about them. Instead of doing the same, Lukasz used those ball socket bricks to create an unconventional base for his build that makes the whole thing look like it is floating. Well done all around.

The guts of it

Cole Blaq continues his series on the brick with this piece showing us the inner working of our favorite iconic construction toy. I will never look at my pile of brick in the same way now.

Inside Workings

Modern kitchen and dining room

Littlehaulic once again shows her creativity for interior design with Lego in this kitchen and dining room creation. There are many details that’ll reward those who take a closer look. Can you find the blender, power outlets, and the hidden foodling in the pictures?

The Phantom Cart by Dali in Lego

My latest work is not something I typically build. It’s my first forced perspective build, my first imitation of a 2D image, and also my first time building a MOC for a single photo. You can see the original painting and its meaning on Flickr.

Fluorescent graffiti

Alex Schranz uses transparent colors to create a 3D graffiti display of his signature “PAX.” He uses a black light to give the pieces a fluorescent glow, resembling something from another dimension.
