411C: A Beautiful Lego Studio in Lego

Dave Kaleta's 411C Lego Studio

Lego builder Dave Kaleta has created an extremely realistic MOC based on his Lego studio. The project is titled “411C” and is named after the address of the studio space. This is a great workspace, featuring two huge desks, plenty of organized storage, unorganized storage, and even Lego mosaics hanging on the wall. This scene is made all the better by natural lighting and a huge window.

It is the details that make 411C so lifelike. Notice the glass jars on top of the shelving. The multicolored and differently shaped storage containers in the loft space. The well made mini mosaics. The feet holding up the main desk are especially well done, as is the slightly askew handles on the drawers. The desk chair is another great build, with a great use of a Lego propeller for the casters.

This Lego studio is part of a series of autobiographical builds. It is extremely detailed, and is a great way to show off a unique artistic studio space. Check out all the details over on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/davekaleta/15276376986/

And, to see just how close this is to the actual studio. Check out the short video below:

“Do Not Feed” — Mosaic Window Display

Hilary Leung and Steadibrick's “Do Not Feed” Mosaic Window Display

Hilary Leung and Steadibrick created this wonderful 3D mosaic window display titled “Do Not Feed.” This display is currently up in the Sherway Gardens Lego store in Toronto. It is not everyday that you see people combining a typical Lego mosaic with 3D objects, which is a shame because it can look great. As usual the pixelated 8-bit style design is a great fit with the blocky Lego. Everything is just so cute.

Make sure to check out this project over at Threadless, where you can vote to see it on a T-shirt!

Brickwares Futurama Lego Mosaics

Brickwares: Futurama Lego Mosaic Hermes

“Good news, everyone!” Brickwares has created a small series of Futurama Lego mosaics. Check them out!

With the rumors that Lego has picked up the Simpsons license, there was some hope that they would also be interested in Futurama. But, with the recent news of Comedy Central canceling the show, it seems like that possibility of a Lego license would also be canceled.

Lego Mosaics By Hilary Leung

Hilary Leung’s Where The Wild Things Are Mosaic

Lego Mosaics are a great fit for pixel art. The standard 2×2 and 1×1 brick is a perfect match for a pixel. The constraints put onto this style of building can make for wonderful results. A great mosaic can even be created with a relatively small collection.

Hilary Leung’s Lego Mosaics started out how most projects do, as a neat side project. His inspiration is to create a book to give to his son showcasing the idea to “Make Something Cool Every Day.” At the beginning of this year, he started creating 8-bit animals and posting them on various websites.

Hilary Leung’s Character Mosaics

These little 8-bit animals have so much personality. There are 31 of these in the series, ranging from a beaver, to a donkey, to a tiger, and even a snake. The key to these animal mosaics is the eyes. The theme changed slightly after a month, to creating mosaics based on Hilary Leung’s list of top 28 picture books.

Hilary Leung’s Oh No! Or How My Science Project Destroyed The World

These 28 mosaics are all extremely well done and instantly recognizable. Featuring such picture books as, Where the Wild Things Are, Harold and the Purple Crayon, Olivia, Curious George, the Sneetches, and many more. Ultimately being limited to a relatively small selection of colors can create interesting solutions, and these mosaics are better for it.

You can find Hilary Leung on Flickr and on Blogspot. His “Make Something Cool Everyday” set on Flickr is a great place to see all 69 mosaics. Hopefully more are on their way.

Not only has Hilary Leung created these mosaics but he is also an illustrator. He has a series of picture books out titled Ninja Cowboy Bear. The trilogy is available on Amazon: The Legend of Ninja Cowboy Bear, The Way of the Ninja, and The Call of the Cowboy. Make sure to check them out.
