After viewing these pictures, it became very clear to me that I would never try this job. Even if you work for many years with these predators and know all about their behaviour, there’s no guarantee that you’d be safe.
I’m a huge fan of Star Wars, that’s why I became so excited, when I found this guy on DeviantArt. His nick is Xander, and he is a multi talent. First I ran into one of his custom paper toys, but when I had a closer look at his gallery, I dropped my jaw. He designed tons of lovely Star Wars characters with excellent style. In this post You can find most of them, but visit his DA page for the rest.
C3PO and R2D2
Carl Warner and his team of five model makers have done really incredible work. They used 26 different types of fruit and vegetables to recreate London’s skyline as an edible landscape. It took them three weeks to complete all this. Let’s take a look at their stunning work.
Brixels is an Austrian company that specializes in creating portraits using LEGO bricks. Just send them a photo and they’ll send you back the perfect Christmas gift.
The amazing LEGO mosaics you see below were created with thousands of 1×1 bricks in four different colors (black, white, dark gray and light gray). Although the guys at Brixels have made LEGO portraits of celebrities like Barack Obama, Marylin Monroe or Bruce Lee, it doesn’t mean you can’t have your face recreated with LEGO. In fact, the company presents its clients with two options. Other send them the photo and receive a LEGO kit that you can put together yourself, or have them piece it together. Sure the last option is more expensive, but considering these things are made of up to 4,600 pieces, you migt one to consider it. Brixels (cool name, don’t you think?) was founded by Stefan Sacherer, a 29-year-old graphic designer from Salzburg. A big LEGO fan, Stefan built his first mosaic as a present for his girlfriend. The positive reactions of their friends inspired him to open Brixels, in order to allow people to create their own LEGO portraits.
Damn good idea, if I do say so myself!
