LEGO PORTRAITS!! By GAS

Last year I offered a Poster Promotion, and a couple of people took advantage of that promo and Commissioned me to draw up a couple of posters. One of my most popular during that promo was my LEGO Portraits. I would draw LEGO men in the likeness of friends.

My Friends’s little man had a Lego themed birthday party a couple years ago. Instead of buying some over-priced Lego toy item, I thought I would make something special and unique that he would enjoy and made him a poster of him AS a Lego Man! (Took me FOREVER to get his face right! Lol). This was a lot of fun to do. When I posted this pic as part of my poster promotion, a few people were interested in having one done for them and a loved one.

While having lunch together one afternoon at work, I showed my friend and colleague the previous LEGO person picture I drew for my friend’s son for his birthday. My colleague at work loved it. He is a lifelong LEGO connoisseur and immediately wanted one for himself and commissioned me to do one of him and his son! Such a great keepsake and it looks awesome hung up on their wall!

LEGO Thomas was a commission from my cousin Renelle in Arnprior for her son Thomas, who is a huge Lego AND Ottawa Senators fan. Having seen and admired my previous Lego Man posters, Renelle contacted me about doing one for Thomas to have as a Christmas Gift. Thomas is a really cool and imaginative little boy, who once told me that he was going to grow up one day to be Iron Man. The concept for the design was LEGO Man Thomas standing in a display case made from Lego Bricks. I was told by his Mom that at first he was excited because he thought it was of one of his favourite Senators players, but then was even more elated when he discovered that the poster was of him! Lol. Cute kid.
