Cutting through space again.
This time with a racing ship, competing at the Asteroid Belt Super Nova Race at Tau Ceti.

Transforming from/to Graffiti, Urban Art and Brick Art
The spray can, the icon of the Graffiti and Street Art movement being rebuilt with plastic bricks. In a second step making some decent photos of the built spray can, serving as a blueprint for spray painting the motive on the wall, completing the cycle. Painted at the Meeting Of Styles 2017 in Wiesbaden.
Enjoying fresh colors inna mecha style!
Pretty happy with the frame. Although it features the small ball joints I managed to make it more stable than other models at the same size with the same small ball joints. Also the abdomen has a crazy joint mechanism, making it max posable 😀
Fun fact that the show was in the St. Pauli Barrio inside of the infamous Millerntorstadium.
It was a literal blast, starting with a small collaboration, extending to a layout full of sound, engineering and street art/graffiti and rounding things up with an all-nighter in diverse clubs…
As a small surprise he also brought a tropical DJ booth along with a DJ and a selector.
My counterpart was a spraycan which got ‘blasted’ by the music. The spraycan being a tower of varying colour sounds echoing the acoustical sounds. The whole shape is deformed in a mix between an astral body and a bullit-like bending caused by the metal ball which is an integral part of a spraycan.
Unfortunately the shots of the collabo are semi, as lighting and stuff had to be improvised.
Last Year I was presented a fantastic material.
It was a piece of a wall, to be precise a fragment of the paint which covered the wall for the last decade or more. This massive layer of paint contains a sector of hundrends of graffiti paintings. Like sediments full of history and stories…
Although making jewellery was the aim of the workshop, I took a different path. For me, naturally, I had to pay homage to the origin. Therefore I carved out a graffiti style, highlighting the source material, making a graffiti out of graffiti paint(ed) graffities.
This can be seen as an excursion in an experimental phase. I’d like returning to this possibility eventually.
Shout out to Opty for the inspiration!
Some time ago I made a spaceship for a blind-pass-along-game. That was a great opportunity to dwell into the depths of deep space reconnaissance.
That was the first version. Later I made another version, featuring a different colour scheme alongside some minor tweaks.
In addition I gave this version a sticker job with various decals.
Due to the increasing popularity I made another version with a custom paint job, meaning that I painted several elements.
Following my soft spot for cutting edge farming machines in terms of design and functions I made an adaption of the Claas Xerion. This one was built in addition to the John Deere Forwarder I presented previously.
The challenge was to make it minifig-suitable, that means quite small. In addition I wanted to incorporate the rotating cabin.

In addition here are the break down shots if you would like to build your own version or just see how the construction looks like.
