Ill get the ball rolling with a short review on lego art

Nathan Sawaya has made several portraits of himself (including a full-sized sculpture), and has even gotten a tattoo of the famous Lego indentations on his thumb; a fitting tribute to something that fueled his childhood imagination, and kept him employed as an adult.

This man is a genius!!

Lego sculptures seem like a natural avenue for Lego art, but portraits are another of Nathan Sawaya’s secret weapons. Placing pieces in just the right order, he’s able to create realistic and artful portraits of anyone with incredible detail.
