Photo of Grayscale portrait
15" x 20"        1,536 LEGO elements.        Completed December 22, 2008
While I normally create more colorful LEGO portraits, this project was commissioned specifically in black-and-white. (Ironically, the subject was wearing a bold fuschia shirt!) Perhaps his gleaming personality is color enough to brighten the image.

It's not very large (only 15 inches) so it was clear that his facial features were not going to be the priority in this piece. It was more important to me that his bold and fun personality come through in the final result.

As always, I hand-draw my portraits and don't rely on computer programs to tell me where to put the LEGO pieces. (Why ruin all the fun?)

15" x 20" inches.
