This is the first mosaic that I've done before, and I think it's great!
It was made for a Christmas gift for my dad.
I had to buy a lot of 1x1 very light gray (grey??) plates, and that's VERY light grey. Not your average joe light grays. (greys?)
They were surprisingly tough to find on Bricklink. I wish I could have done transparent windows, but I couldn't find any from the seller.
And I'm not sure if this is cheating according to my fellow mosaic MOCers, but I used a picture taken and pixelated it to make it easier to turn into a Lego mosaic.
Here's a closeup of the van. (I thought of using this as my buddy icon, but decided that it was too far from MY interests)
The name Jim. You might think that he just got the name by just picking a name, but he didn't. There's a reason why the Westfalia's name is Jim. However I'm going to keep that a secret. ;)
