Sean Kenney's Google Logo

Name of Model: Google Logo
Created by: Sean Kenney
Found at:
When Sean Kenney was commissioned by Google to create a mosaic of the Google logo out of LEGO, he decided to do something a bit different with the idea to make a more whimsical display. Look closely at this one and make sure you scroll down - there are quite a few bizarre things going on here. Most obviously, the mosaic is made out of a variety of LEGO parts and not just standard bricks. Further than that, though, parts are used to create shadows that give the illusion of a more curved appearance. It's like the great impressionistic painters' technique - it looks like lots of little random bits up close, but it looks like a traditional painting from afar. Oh, and there's studs-not-on-top details and a few actual rare colors thrown in there too.
This is Saturday's model of the day.
