About this creation
This 15" x 20" mosaic was made for the Flag Day event on Mill Avenue in Downtown Tempe, AZ.

One of the most famous roads in America, Route 66 is one of the original U.S. highways and stretched from Chicago to Los Angeles before being replaced by the Interstate Highway System (specifically, I 40).

Very striking, it would be epic made out of smooth plates.

Nice! Love how you utilized the bleys to help soften curves and transitional areas between colors.

That's pretty sweet! The fact that you angled it makes it look all the better.

I really like how you angled it, adding that little bit of character, and i'm sure a lot more difficulty to the design and built. Love it!

Perfect job! It's just somehing about the lettering that makes this sign really pop! Great job and happy building!

I love how it uses a darker shade to round off corners, awesome!

Nicely done, I like the orange backdrop, it's unassuming yet it subtly highlights the sign.

Definitely a "Vintage 2012" piece, with its modern and throwback characteristics. Epic mosaic, Dave!

Quoting Tim C Your ability to build these mosaics is boggling. This is one of my favorites of yours. Partially just for the cultural significance. There's no American that doesn't automatically recognize that sign. But what really stands out to me is your use of the gray bricks, really gives it that pixelated look and softens those hard edges of the ninety degree angles that can't be avoided with LEGO. Well done, as always.
Thanks Tim! Those gray bricks really gave me a hard time (just as hard as Barry Goldwater's ear), but I am happy with the end result. I decided to rock the sign to the left slightly so it would be asymmetric and have a more "original" look to it. I also used dark blue and dark red bricks for a rich and more "vintage" appearance.
