Droolin’ Over Bricks: LEGO Food That Looks Good Enough to Eat

LEGO Food

Above is what pancakes slathered in syrup and topped with butter would look like if we lived in a pixelated world. We don’t, but that didn’t stop master Lego builder Sachiko Akinaga from putting together this gallery of scrumptious-looking dishes using nothing but Lego bricks. It’s hard enough–at least, for me–to build something from sets that contain actual instructions, so what Sachiko achieved here is no small feat.

Aside from the most common breakfast food ever, he also built a banana (that has just been peeled), some sushi, and even a burger. Hit the break to check out the rest of his work.Continue Reading

This Animated LEGO Joker Funhouse is Just Awesome

Joker Funhouse

The Joker’s funhouse is more madness than fun, but what else would you expect from the Joker aside from his signature scares that go from funny to deadly in an instant? Master LEGO builder Paul Hetherington decided to take on the Joker’s funhouse for his next project and the results are nothing short of amazing.

The most impressive part? Some parts of the funhouse are actually animated, from the googly eyes and gated entrance to Robin and Batman, who’s twirling by the entrance non-stop.

You can check out a gallery of various views of the funhouse here. A video of the funhouse in motion is available after the break.

Sebastian Errazuriz’s ’12 Shoes for 12 Lovers’ are Wearable Art With Rich Backstories

12 Shoes for 12 Lovers-2

Relationships, regardless of how serious they are, will impact your life in one way or another. This is specially true in Sebastian Errazuriz’s case, who used his past relationships and experiences with ex-girlfriends as inspiration to create 12 Shoes for 12 Lovers. It’s essentially a collection of twelve shoe sculptures that capture the essence of the women and the relationship that he had with them.

For example, the shoe pictured above, “Cry Baby” Alexandra, is about a weeping girl who came to him after a particularly bad break-up. Another shoe in the series, “Gold Digger” Alison, is about a girl who left him for her rich boss (exactly what the name implies.)

You can find the rest of the shoes in the series after the break.

Healthy Food Sculptures are Pure Win

Food Sculptures

Parents are always telling their kids not to play with their food. But on the off-chance that it can lead to this, I’d let my (future) kids play with their food all they want.

These impressive food sculptures are the work of Romania-based photographer Dan Cretu, who uses a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables to create everyday objects like motorcycles, radios, cassette tapes, and cameras. The slide-out matchbox with matchsticks is my favorite in the series. Due to the organic nature of Dan’s fresh sculptures, each one of them had to be constructed and photographed within a matter of four hours.

Hit the break to check out more sculptures from the series.
