Lego Logo

For the first of my lego mosaics using my own lego, I thought it would be appropriate to use the Lego logo. So may I present the Lego logo in Lego. I actually did this the other night, but just haven't gotten around to posting a pic yet.

The hardest bit was actually designing. Clicking it all together took next to no time. Now I just need to find pictures to make mosaics out of.. :)

I spent far too long this afternoon drooling over pictures of Jason Isaacs. Well the alternative was cleaning the toilet and doing the dishes, I know which activity I'd rather be doing :) I was also looking at the movies he's done. Except for the odd occasion where he's played the good guy, he mostly plays the bad guy, and plays a bad guy damned brilliantly. That softly spoken voice.. and that sneer.. wow. <remembers to breathe>

I've also been reading the book of Labyrinth. I was watching it for the anniversary last night (just a few days late), and looking up pictures and stuff on the net. I found this site which has a very cool collection of Labyrinth resources, including the script of the movie (which I wrote down in longhand fourteen years ago) and the novelisation! I'm probably half way through the book, it seems very short. I quietly did a wget of the site to have a look at some of the pictures in my own time. <more breathless moments as I skipped ahead last night to read the ballroom scene>

Have you noticed how the American backed/made films usually have English people as the bad guys. European films too. English made films tend to have German or Scottish people as the bad guys. Funny that .... ha ha ha ;)

Hmmm... Yes. He plays a very good bad guy. He does it so well that I really just don't like him!

BTW, great mosaic! Do they make lego pieces in pastel colours etc? I'm just wondering how you'd do a mosaic, for example, of say, a photo of something, if they don't come in pastel colours?

They come in all sorts of colours.
You can get bulk lots of light grey, dark grey, brown and tan. There's some available in purple, orange and dark pink, but not in all shapes. There's not much in the way of pastels or shades of blue and green. Combinations of red, white and yellow can make skin tones, but really only work if the picture is big enough..

Killer! So did you figure out an easier way to generate the layouts, or are you still doing the tedious photoshop thing?
