Subway Sandwich Meal

Last summer I was commissioned by Lay’s® to make a sculpture of a Subway® meal consisting of a 6″ sandwich, a fountain drink and a bag of Lay’s potato chips to celebrate the two companies’ 50 year partnership and to be unveiled at an event in Las Vegas, NV.

The sandwich measures 15″ x 36″ and 20″ tall.
The cup measures 16″ x 16″ and 34″ tall.
The bag of chips measures 6″ x 18″ and 28″ tall.

NetApp Insight 2014

netapp01netappThis past October I travelled to Las Vegas, Nevada to build a 6′ LEGO sculpture of the NetApp logo. The build event took place at the NetApp Insight Conference 2014 at the MGM Grand over the course of two days.

netapp02Audience participation was a key aspect of the build. The NetApp logo is blue, and while the primary color used on the sculpture was blue, different colored bricks were added by the participants based on different levels of sponsorship.

The final product was over 8,500 pieces and was shipped and installed at NetApp’s corporate campus in Sunnyvale, California.

Be sure to check out the time-lapse video below:

Hibiscus

This is the third of three sculptures commissioned by the Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens in Rockford, IL for their Bricktober event. I did a live build of the butterfly Oct 26-27 at the Conservatory.

Like the butterfly and toucan, this has an internal steel frame. It bolts into the base of the stem, and can be mounted from there. The flower is about 31″ in diameter.

My favorite part of this build was detailing the pistil of the hibiscus.

Toco Toucan

This is the second of three sculptures commissioned by the Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens in Rockford, IL for their Bricktober event. I did a live build of the butterfly Oct 26-27 at the Conservatory.

Like the butterfly, this has an internal steel frame. It bolts into the bottom frame on which the feet rest. The bird is about 31″ from bill to tail.

I really enjoyed working on the legs and feet. Toco toucans have iridescent legs, and I think the mixture of dark grey and sand blue gets the effect across. I don’t get to use sand blue enough, and luckily I was able to build this with the limited palette available.

Monarch Butterfly

This sculpture was one of three commissioned by the Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens in Rockford, IL for their Bricktober event. I did a live build of the butterfly Oct 26-27 at the Conservatory.

The butterfly body houses the main steel frame which six steel rods fit through to support the wings. The frame is also threaded for a stand or feet. The wingspan is about 38″.

The proboscis is made from a monkey tail which only appeared in the set 4094 Motor Movers.

I’ll be at the Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens this weekend for a live build event. I’ll be building a LEGO butterfly from 10:00am-3:00pm on Saturday and Sunday.

I also built two more sculptures for the Conservatory, which are already on site but will be making their debut here in the next few days.

The Conservatory is located at 1354 N. 2nd St. Rockford, IL 61107. Visit their website for more info and for tickets!
