LEGO Mosaic: "Hudson Jackson & Emerson"
Click for larger version.
This portrait of Hudson, Jackson, and Emerson was commissioned as a surprise Mother's Day present for a family in New Jersey.
Original photos of the boys were sampled from three separate photographs and pieced together to form the basis of our portrait. We then worked on the lighting/shading needed to make it appear as though they were all sitting together for a photograph.
Once that process was complete, we worked it into a Lego mosaic portrait design and began the build. It took about 26 hours of build time, when you take into account the number of helping hands we had on this project.
The mosaic was wrapped and packed up, shipped to New Jersey in a discreet box (as all of our projects deliberately are, by the way) and so the recipient (the boys' mother) was unaware of what was inside.
The video was shared first, revealing to her what might be within the box, and when the box was opened, "there were tears of joy," our customer said.
We love hearing that.
