Family Art Night LEGO Sets

May 22nd, 2014

Tonight is Family Art Night at my daughter’s school, South Mountain Elementary.  One of the activities will be LEGO building the custom sets below.

The kids will each get a bag with all the proper bricks to build five small sets. The green bricks supplied can be used to build either the tree, or the creeper.

There is also one non-LEGO addition the the creeper design. I created a face for it using black fabric tape. The size of this set is small, and it would be difficult to use black LEGO elements to form the eyes and mouth, so I went with the tape instead. Tonight, each builder with get a small face sticker, similar in design to the tape.

I hope you enjoy building these cute sets!

LEGO DNA Sculpture

December 18th, 2010

My daughter and I built this LEGO DNA sculpture for her school science project.  It took us a lot of trial and error to come up with the design, but I think it turned out great.  This is the first model I’ve ever glued, because without it the sculpture was very fragile and would have never survived the trip to school.  We used Oatey All-Purpose Cement, which was smelly but did a great job of holding the model together.  It actually melts the plastic bricks together, so the sculpture is very sturdy.

After a long break from building, I recently worked with students from Rosholt Elementary School to build a LEGO mosaic of their school mascot – a hornet.  Shown below is the completed project, which is about 3 feet wide by 4 feet tall.

Anti Aliasing with LEGO – Part 2

May 5th, 2010

In Part 1 of this series, I provided some simple examples of Anti-Aliasing (AA) with LEGO.  Today I will look at how the proper shade for each brick can be determined, for both standard and AA mosaics.  I will use the letter ‘A’ mosaic to demonstrate these processes.

In the image above, the red outline is the shape of the letter ‘A’ to be built as a LEGO mosaic.  The first step is to superimpose the outline over a grid of the desired size.  The smaller the pitch on the grid, the more accurately the ‘A’ can be represented, but the more bricks and effort it will take to complete the project.  For this example the ‘A’ will be positioned inside a 9 high by 11 wide grid.
