Brickworld 2008 Review

June 24th, 2008

I’m back home from my first visit to Brickworld, and I’m disappointed. Not because the LEGO creations weren’t good, because they were amazing. But rather, because I’ll have to wait a whole year to go back as a registered attendee. Next year, I plan to be there for the entire event and will bring some of my sculptures and mosaics to display. The up side is that it gives me a whole year to build new items to bring.

As promised, here are some pictures from Brickworld 2008.

There were large scale train setups by several different LEGO Train Clubs. These layouts had so much detail packed into a small area that you could keep coming back to the same display and find interesting things you missed.

Brickworld 2008

June 20th, 2008

bw08-logo.JPG

Brickworld is this weekend in Wheeling, IL (a suburb of Chicago). I will be attending and will do a write up with pictures next week. [Updated 06/24/2008: Just posted Brickworld 2008 Review (with pictures)]

This will be the first national LEGO event I have ever visited. This year I will be visiting the public exhibition only, since I will have my whole family along. In the future, I may attend as a registered participant, which includes classes, building sessions, and many other activities.

LEGO Discovery Days

June 13th, 2008

Today was the day of the Discovery Days Workshop at the Central Wisconsin Children’s Museum. I had 10 kids and their parents join me today to build a LEGO Picture Frame. As promised, I took pictures of the event and several of the completed projects.

Here is a picture of the build in progress.

I decided to have everyone work on the floor instead of at tables, since I knew the bricks would fall all over the floor anyway. I airbrushed the faces on the picture above because I didn’t ask for permission to post pictures.

See below for more pictures! READ FULL ARTICLE »

LEGO Picture Frame

June 10th, 2008

With only two days left until my Children’s Museum Workshop, I’ve decided to make a change to the project I will be doing with the kids. I was planning to do Small Square Mosaics, which I did previously with my son’s Cub Scout Den. However, after my post yesterday I thought it might be better to do a project both artistic and functional. So I decided to switch from a simple square mosaic to a picture frame mosaic.

Shown above is my sample, which I made by moving the bricks from my original square mosaic sample to this base plate.

See below for more pictures and information on how I made the bases for these picture frames. READ FULL ARTICLE »

LEGO Pen and Pencil Holders

June 8th, 2008

You might be a LEGO fanatic if you build practical household items out of LEGO. Just in case I needed any more evidence as to the degree of my LEGO addiction, here are a couple of LEGO Pen and Pencil Holders I’ve built.

These are simple projects to do with kids, and for some reason remind me of the wood and metal shop projects I proudly brought home in junior high school. I think my parents still have the letter holder I made in wood shop when I was 15 years old in their kitchen.

The leftmost item above is a 1×1 LEGO 10x Brick, which is the same dimensions as other two items. See below for more pictures and details. READ FULL ARTICLE »

Robotron LEGO Mosaic

June 4th, 2008

Yesterday I wrote a post showing off my Robotron LEGO Sculptures. I was happy with how they turned out, but they are very fragile. So I decided to incorporate them into a mosaic by building a black background and embedding the sculptures one stud deep. The effect is a relief, studs-up mosaic, similar to the lettering on the BrickPlayer Logo Sculpture.
