Another hubless roller
Long time I was seeking the large quarter circle piece in tan. Still a few parts are not available in tan, most was fine to replace with a similar part, except one (2 same pieces) prominent part. Can you spot it?
Here’s the more authentic version of my interpretation of the famous
Alakuneda Think Tank as seen in the Ghost in the Shell anime. (Not the crap Unholywood remake)
More models from the GitS universe:
In the summer holidays I hosted a workshop with a bunch of kids in a suburb town of Monchengladbach, Germany.
Although the kids had no spraypainting experience before, they worked hard and by the end of the project we had a massive mural painted on the corner of the youth center! Big up to everybody involved and especially the kids!
It was a challenge to work a two-story wall with two sides on a corner, and I think the result is great.
The full progress:
And the final wall with straigtened perspective lines.
A few months ago, Elspeth from New Elementary asked me to play around with a few new Lego Sets from the dots series, namely the bracelets.
There are a bunch of results, which will be showcased time by time where this post will be constantly updated.
For starters there are the interwoving bracelets which give a nice irregular and organic base.
Some applications of this technique – the viruses are here!
Here are three connected bracelets forming an endless stream. This never went beyond WIP.
Three colourful fellas from the sea.
And finally some sketches inspired by and with the (mostly printed) tiles from those sets.
Last week I made my first complete longboard. It was a long term wish on my to-do list as I consider skateboarding as an integral facet of urban culture and the decks being an artistic medium of it’s own kind. An object, a canvas, something useful being further modified by the marks of the urban playground.
My starting point was a blank uncut deck. The designs were spontaneous ideas. I wanted to use the griptape in a designful way. Therefore I cut it out partially and made an underlying colour fading first. The second element is the triangle with the rounded corners. This icon is a reminiscence of the ‘play’-button on tape decks.
The bottom design was a result of a few thoughts coming together: I wanted to honour the material of the deck and leave part of the deck free so one can see the structure of the fabric – wood. I also wanted to paint a picture and include the message of sustainability. Therefore the idea of a cosmic tree was born.
Here are some shots of the progress and the final design.
On a sidenote, the sharkwheels are awesome!
