Francis Drake

Name of Model: Francis Drake
Created by: Michael Jasper
Found at: MOCPages
Details: Michael Jasper has done a series of vignettes of historical figures, making use of very low piece counts, but incorporating pieces that most of us tend to overlook in very imaginative ways. His version of Francis Drake, pictured here, is a perfect example. In the stand for the globe I'm counting three pieces: an Islander minifig hair, a faucet tap, and a life preserver. And those legs/shoes are pretty obvious how to build when you look at them, but the average Zack doesn't come up with that. Very well done Michael! I also encourage you to take a look at some of the other historical figures he's done, like Alfred Nobel, Marilyn Monroe, and Vincent Van Gogh.
