LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Portraits

As a child of the 1980s-1990s, TMNT holds a special place in my heart. I have the entire original series on DVD (a little disappointed that it doesn’t hold up so well). I own the 3 original movies, and I still have most of my original TMNT toys from childhood. I’ve since bought numerous TMNT actions figures, shirts, and gotten into the comic books. So, this piece was a long time coming. The design is fairly simple. The bulk of the cost was in the backing, and having to place multiple orders across sellers because I couldn’t consolidate the parts list better. And, the part for the “knot” in Donatello’s bandana was only available in 2 sets, according to Brick Set.

LEGO Rocket Ship Mosaic

This is another requested piece. The little boy’s room is space themed, and this rocket ship fits great. It was a little tough designing this one, trying to get enough detail to define the ship. I knew right away that I wanted to use the 2×2 round flat tiles for port holes. After doing some searching around the web for inspiration, I found a mosaic that had the rocket ship on a diagonal, and something about it just made it pop. I think it better displays the flight. I couldn’t find a black base plate at a reasonable price, so I got dark gray, which actually doesn’t look bad. It also doesn’t create too much contrast with the ship.

LEGO Ladybug Mosaic

I made another LEGO mosaic. This one was requested by a friend to match the theme of their daughter’s bedroom. This one isn’t purely flat square tiles like my rubber duck. The spots and the eyes are raised. It would have been difficult to get that much detail on a piece this size with just square tiles.
