Having previously purchased my bride and groom wedding cake toppers, one woman also decided to commission a LEGO portrait of her and her son, as a gift for her son's second birthday. Her son loves to hang around her neck, so I created this portrait based on several photos that she had sent me. As always, my LEGO portraits are hand-drawn, not computer-generated; I did my best to capture their love and the energy between them.
great work. its one of those pictures that you get too close and it means nothing, but as you pull away you see a great work of art. I just want to say that I'm a man (34) who when people say "you still play with lego?" I just tell them go google and type sean kenney and then tell me what you think. Its always amazement and wow that is pretty cool. keep up the great work.
Beautiful...Sean, you tell us over and over again why we do this. It's art that gets created here. You show us through your creations that we can strive to express ourselves in the medium we choose...but do it with excellence. This is as amazing as anything you have built. Never have I seen a mosaic that captured such life and expression.
I never realized that your mosaics are done by hand and are not computer generated. I can not tell you how amazing that is!! Wow! Perhaps that is why I've always felt that your mosaics seemed "warmer"; more real.
Do you use plates or bricks?
