Lego versions of Nintendo games!

I remember lying on my stomach for hours next to a huge Styrofoam cooler (once use for packing salmon – yes it was HUGE) filled with Lego. When I’d finally get up to eat dinner I’d have the carpet texture tattooed on both my elbows. To call me a fan of Lego during those years would be the understatement of the 21st century. So you can imagine my reaction when I saw these…

Hawaii.

First of all, I just want to say thank you to all you regular readers of the site, you’ve really made this site something I look forward to updating everyday. Moving forward, I’m going to devote even more time to the site because, well, this baby is still growing at an alarming rate. 170,000 views in the past two months is no joke! Big thanks to all the sponsors/advertisers for helping offset my site costs.

In honor of the huge increase of spam in the comments section (none of which actually shows up thanks to the wonderful akismet plugin) and the appearance of spam text messages on my freakin cell phone (how?) I am heading to the spam capital of the world (the other kind!). If anyone needs me I’ll be getting tanned and jacked in Maui for the week.

I’ve pre-written a few posts, so there will continue to be new content posted while I’m away. As soon as I return I’ll post up the Project #3 gallery (had some great submissions already)! Oh, and keep your eyes peeled, I’ve got a bunch of fun stuff planned for the upcoming months.

Aloha.

Lauren Javor

Gorgeous paintings by Whistler BC resident, Lauren Javor. I had the privilege of showing my work along side hers as part of this year’s Brave Art Shows. I literally joined her fan club the minute I walked into the gallery and saw her work hanging on the wall.

Slime and Reason

You may recall I posted about Oscar & Ewan and their fantastic lasertype awhile back – well, Ewan just hit me up with a look at their latest work, the cover for the new Roots Manuva album, “Slime and Reason”. It is stunning.

I asked about the process and Ewan explained they actually had Roots Manuva 3D scanned (from every 45 degree angle) and then manipulated the 3D image to set the bowl in. Then they took their prototype to a sculptor and had a cast made. Finally they created some slime out of hand soap, filled the bowl, and Pelle Crépin snapped some photos. Boom, done.

If you aren’t familiar with Roots Manuva, it’s time you got familar! Here’s one of my favourite tracks off an older album:

Apparently we killed the hotlink file – (here’s the Zshare link!)

Lego Bowser

Remember how I was hoping to find a Lego version of Ren? Well I still haven’t found one, but this Lego version of Bowser is pretty cool!

Drawing Flies!

We already established that Yasmine and Kyle draw everyday, today I learned that Jeff Kennedy does too. Jeff (great name by the way) loves fishing and is attempting to draw flies everyday for a year! That’s commitment! I love that… I mean, committing to things for long periods of time is not my favourite thing personally, but I love when other people commit to things like this.

If you don’t like fishing you are stupid. The only other possibility is that you are actually a fish yourself, and somehow surfing the internet underwater.
