As many of us know, one of the most popular Lego conventions took place last month (June) in Wheeling, IL. Brickworld 2010, which took place June 17th-20th with 795 attendees, was a huge success (Or at least what I've heard and seen). And it had a fairly good sized presence of mosaics!
As you've learned from yesterday's post, the first mosaic workshop took place June 17th in the morning, but a second one took place later that day in the afternoon. The Advanced Mosaics workshop took place from 1:00-4:00 PM. Led by Roy T. Cook, the description on the Brickworld website reads,
In this workshop we shall examine some advanced LEGO mosaic techniques (such as those used in my Aayla Secura mosaic and Johnny Cash mosaic, displayed at previous Brickworlds, and my Reese Witherspoon mosaic, displayed this year). In particular, various techniques for 'blending' colors, and using non-rectangular elements to achieve this and other effects, will be discussed. After the presentation and question and answer session, the participants will collaborate on a large mosaic. Led by Roy Cook
I've searched all over the place to find the "collaborative large mosaic", but can't seem to find it. If anyone can point me in the right direction, that would be great.
But, I was able to find two of the mosaics mentioned in description.
Both of them are by Roy T. Cook.
First, his Aayla Secura mosaic (Star Wars).
To see the technique he used for this awesome mosaic, click here.
And secondly, his Reese Witherspoon mosaic, which does not have a close up image so you'll click on the one below to get a closer look (The mosaic is the one on the far right).
I've got two more posts about BW'10 so stay tuned! ;-)
