AFRO CHICKS AND THE ATTACK OF THE SPAMPIRE

.....The portal door opened just in time for the Afro Chicks to escape the attack of the Spampire. Some people say the Spampire is just misunderstood and only wants to make friends, or is that only what he wants them to believe?.....

Ashley wood's "Dirty Deeds Bertie" in lego










As I've said before, I love ASHLEY WOOD's art and his figures produced by THREEA.
Some of his figures are hard to get, selling too fast or are just too damn scarce, and
"Dirty Deeds Bertie" is one of those figures.
I had to have one, so I made one from good old lego. He's about 4.5 inches tall and I had to modify some of the lego used (e.g. the body and head dome have been painted etc.). He has posable arms, a big gun and a meat cleaver thrown in for good measure. He also has the Bertie mk1's little legs which I think are pretty cool (and slightly disturbing). On-line pictures of Angus MacLane's lego Bertie helped with the pouch belt, check him out! www.flickr.com/photos/27826007@N05/
While not perfect, it's probably as close as I'll get to owning one of those
bad ass bots!

IT'S SPAMPIRE!


Yes it's Spampire. The Vampiric, Fez wearing pork luncheon meat who is telekinetic and can change size at will. Although he can appear quite scary, most of the time he just needs a cuddle.

LEGO LASSTRANAUT LOL! An Ashley Wood Tribute

Lasstranaut?
She's another cool Ashley Wood character.
An astronaut who apparently has no need for trousers or undies.

Ashley Wood "SQUARE" Lego Style!







Hands up those who love Ashley Wood's art!
Well I do and I bet there's lots of you out there who do too.
Here is a Lego version of the very, very cute SQUARE from Ashley's
"World War Robot".
He's about the size of the 1/6 Squares by the very cool toy company THREEA (about 4" tall), but he has four lego train weights in him, so he's pretty heavy. With movable legs and a toothy grin he's super cute, so go make one or better still get yourself a 3A version, they're awesome!

That Gun Again! Lego Blade Runner Blaster revisited





Some more picks of the Lego Blaster slightly modified (not much!). Closer dimensions to the original (after finding some measurements online) a bit narrower in the main body. As you can see the grip is half way brown, just need to get those pesky brown curved bricks. Have also part modeled new triggers and trigger guard in lego digital designer, but still need to get those pieces.

Channeling Rainbow Brite?

Hiya, I know it's been a while since I uploaded anything, but here's 2 new paintings.  One is a redo of a painting I did on a tea tray, now on canvas.  The other isn't quite finished yet.  There's a hula girl still to go in. 

Sorry, the picture quality isn't the greatest.  It was taken on my compact.





Really need to get back in the swing of things, I've been lazy recently!

Lego Blade Runner Blaster

Here is my Lego Blade Runner (Deckards) Blaster. This bad boy is full size and heavy too, it's got 4 train weights inside it. I don't think it looks too bad and it is a work in progress. I've already upgraded the design on lego digital designer, so if I can get the parts I will put the new version on some time in the future.





Need any lego replicants taken care of?
I love Blade Runner,  Neil

I had a cracking time in Alaska.........




One wrong step on a slippery floor, and I break my Radius and chip the end off my Ulna!  Heaps of swelling, I don't recommend it!  It's given me a few ideas for paintings though...........

The Shining, Lego style!

I love art, but I also love movies and lego. One of our favorite movies is The Shining and this is my attempt at recreating a classic scene in lego form. Hope you like it, I may try some more in the future and will post (watch out for Deckard's blaster from Blade Runner lego-ized!)


"Here's Johnny!"
"ooh, shiny!"

HOUSE 6?

Yes, this is house 6, I know what you're thinking, what happened to 4 and 5?. 
4 and 5 were just little paintings done for friends and were gone before I could photograph them. This guy is 5x7 and was painted early 2011.


It's floaty light!

I wish I could get this......

Hiya folks, I've not been updating this thing very often, but I'll hopefully have some more stuff to show you soon........in the meantime, here is a painting by a guy called Zach Franzen. Wish I could buy it. I'm lovin' it.


Hope everybody is well. Inga (aka Orkneylass). :-)

HOUSE 3 : Attack of the...............?



The third installment in the house 8 part(so far) trilogy???.  This one is a mini version of House 2 and was painted specifically for our friend Miss Curly Top. It's only 2"x3" and is custom fitted in a tiny perspex box frame (from 2008).



Tiny house craziness in perspex Hannibal Lecter cage (just in case!).
Neil





"HOUSE 2 : The Return!!!"

Here's another house painting from 2008. Painted in a looser style it was the second in what seems to be a series and is a lot bigger than the last one measuring 9"x20". It was painted on the backing board of a cool long frame, then put in the frame back to front(?).


Desert colour craziness!

"IT'S TIME FOR HOUSE"

Here's the first of my house paintings. I don't know where the idea for this little house came from but it's popped up in 7 paintings so far (I may be having a Close Encounters moment!) Anyway this was the first, painted in 2008 and more to come. 



Is it big grass or just a tiny house?
