I ran into this video of an absolutely incredible collaboration project depicting Homer’s The Odyssey in LEGO that was shown at Brickworld Chicago this year, and I just had to share it. Having just read that story recently, I super appreciate all the hard work and detail that went into this amazing display, and I hope you will too. Even if you don’t remember every bit of the epic tale, it’s a sight to behold.
Of course, after seeing this I figured I should share some other literary brickwork I’ve seen lately (full disclosure/extra fun link: I discovered some of these through my go-to brick blog The Brothers Brick), so here goes:Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King), and other LotR-related builds over at Sergeant Chipmunk’s photostream.
Captain America, Spider-Man, Batman, and other comics character portraits over at Chris McVeigh’s photostream.over at his flickr, and it’s worth checking out all the details. He’s 28 inches from head to toe, and has a 35-inch wingspan – massive. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BVLdycNnq0[/youtube]
Also from Brickworld Chicago this year, have a look at scenes from The Princess Bride all done up in LEGO parts.A Storm of Swords, built by the folks at Waterstones. More pictures of their brick work here. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXsQTOOWkZo&feature=kp[/youtube]
