I have been trying to explain to my son how boring this was but exciting too. My brother bought the first version where you stuck a screen over the glass of the TV to produce the “net.” It was such a hassle to set up that we only played it a couple of times.
Over the past year I have created 32 portraits of pop-culture characters using Lego, in a format that I call Brick Sketches. The first Brick Sketch (not pictured) was created as a fun tribute to the amazing marker sketches being produced by my artist friends Karen Hallionand Bamboota. However, response to my “sketch” was so strong that I was compelled to create more. By my third sketch, I’d locked down a consistent format (front profile on a 12x16 grid) and a framing device (the markers).
Brick Sketches are certainly the most fun project series I’ve ever taken on, and I will continue to create them as long as I have both the inspiration and the wedge plates.
