    2015 may well be the year of Mouse Guard, as it celebrates it’s 10th anniversary and – as we previously mentioned here – Seattle’s own ArchLUG will be unveiling a big collaborative Mouse Guard display at Emerald City Comic Con in March. Of course you can expect some pretty amazing architecture in this display. But how are they going to recreate the Mouse Guard characters, you might ask? Simple, with Bricks of the Mouse Guard, that’s how! And you can get in on the action too. Following on from his wildly successful Munchkin Bricks project, Guy Himber of Crazy…

    Custom minifig-maker Minifigs.me has been busy creating a range of film stars for the book Brick Flicks by Warren Elsmore, where they're used to recreate iconic scenes and posters from films spanning almost every genre. You can now buy many of them from their website. I've been provided with two minifigs, based on characters from a popular Disney film, to review. See pictures after the break. Both minifigs feature a custom-printed head and a full body print across torso and dress, which have been printed together to ensure a seamless pattern. The designs are great, there's an…

    22 Oct 2014 | 12:57 pm
    The new range of minifig-scale Minecraft sets are starting to appear on shelves across the world now and will be available from shop.LEGO.com next week, on November 1st. LEGO has kindly sent us two to review: 21114 The Farm and 21115 The First Night. Let's start off with The Farm... Let me start off by saying that I know next to nothing about Minecraft and have never played it. However I have seen how captivated 10-tear olds are when they play it at my local kids' computer club, so have witnessed its appeal. To this non-expert, then, The Farm looks to be one the best of the six sets…

  • LEGO Pinhole Camera

    Caylin
    21 Oct 2014 | 6:36 pm
    Some of you may have made similar cameras: they’re not fancy, but they do what they’re designed to do and capture images. Since the requirement is a dark box, they can be made from just about anything. Ryan H. (eldeeem) proved that by making a pinhole camera from a 2×2 brick. No joke. That small image the minifig is holding was taken by that very same pinhole camera. It’s not a conventional creation we typically feature. It’s brilliant, creative, and definitely pushes LEGO as an art form.

    19 Oct 2014 | 12:15 pm
    The world of LEGO trains can be rather frustrating for the adult hobbyist. Here’s a quick primer for those who are interested in getting into this part of the LEGO hobby. (This is adapted from a comment I made on Facebook in response to someone who was just getting into LEGO trains in 2014.) LEGO has made a few different train systems over the years: 4.5 volt battery trains in the 1960s and 70s used plastic track that you had to build – blue rail pieces connected to 2×8 plates to make the tracks. 12 volt powered trains, which I believe were only sold in Europe in the 1970s,…

I say “final” because it is the last time that it is being run by the LEGO company, but the local LEGO fans will be taking over running it as of next year, so the event will continue. However it was my first time there and I had a great time! My photos have been posted on Flickr, so go check out all the great MOCs (My Own Creations) that were on display.

    Earlier today images of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer that was supposed to come out next Tuesday started making their way around the internets including the new Hulkbuster armor and Ultron. A little later the leaked video that the images come from made their rounds. Just a short while ago, Marvel decided that instead of waiting for Tuesday after Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to premiere the teaser trailer, they “officially” made it public, partly because they believe they had no other choice since it was already everywhere. Their response to the leaks? Dammit, Hydra. — Marvel…

  • The Art of the Brick: A Life in LEGO®

    I am happy to announce that on October 30th, my new book The Art of the Brick: A Life in LEGO® will be available. When I put together my first book some years ago it was for the purpose of connecting with exhibition guests who had seen my work, but maybe were too shy to ask questions. So when I was asked to pen a larger, more in-depth book I wasn’t sure where to even begin. Somewhere during the late hours of many evenings, I found myself doing the same thing as when I am creating a sculpture. But this time, instead of building artworks, I was building a book, chapter by chapter. As with…
  • Hugman in the Park

    Not long ago, I asked guests to my exhibition The Art of the Brick at Discovery Times Square to leave a little piece of themselves with me by signing an individual brick as they exited. In turn, I promised to sculpt a piece of artwork that represented a greater sense of community. For weeks I poured over thousands of multi-colored recycled bricks, stopping to read fun messages along the way, signatures that included handles, hashtags and hometown countries far from New York City. I used over fifty thousand of these bricks to create three larger than life Hugman sculptures to be installed at…
  • LEGO Gaga

    I have collaborated with amazing artists over the years: Jim Lee, Dean West, and you could even count Jonathan Coulton. So it was fun when Lady Gaga approached me about collaborating on her next music video. Gaga’s latest album, ARTPOP, has a lot to do with her life of being caught between both the world of art and the world of pop culture. This resonated with me since I am often creating pop culture references out of a child’s toy and presenting it as art. One of the main themes we discussed was about making art accessible. And one of the main reasons I use LEGO bricks is to make…
  • Join the Art Revolution

    I am pleased to be announcing a project that has been very close to my heart and a big driving force for me as an individual and artist – the formation of a nonprofit giving organization called the Art Revolution Foundation. Art Revolution’s mission is to raise awareness and funds to put art supplies in kids’ hands, to fund programs that put arts education back into America’s schools and to support organizations that conduct art therapy for the ill and elderly. Its key message, “art is not optional,” is driven by the alarming devaluation of the arts in today’s schools and…

    No better way to kick off the opening of The Art of the Brick in Brussels than this spectacular light show. It was also fun to stumble upon The Art of the Brick poster at the world’s most famous French fry stand at Friterie Maison Antoine. In case you were wondering…the fries were delicious! The Art of the Brick is now on display at the Stock Exchange of Brussels (La Bourse de Bruxelles – Place de la Bourse 1 – 1000 Bruxelles) until April 21st, 2014. More information about attending this exhibit can be found here.
