MocAthalon 2013 Team Bricks for Breakfast - (Illustration 'Gregor Samsa') . . Category: 11. Illustration. You've been assigned to illustrate one of your favorite books, show us in the brick one of the illustrations. Team: Bricks for Breakfast Link to the MocAthalon here From Franz kafka's Metamorphosis - 'One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that in his bed he had been changed into a monstrous verminous bug. He lay on his armour-hard back and saw, as he lifted his head up a little, his brown, arched abdomen divided up into rigid bow-like sections. From this height the blanket, just about ready to slide off completely, could hardly stay in place. His numerous legs, pitifully thin in comparison to the rest of his circumference, flickered helplessly before his eyes.' This is my take on the illustration category for the MocAthalon. I wanted to reference wood cut/wood block work from the expressionist era, especially the fact that it was often used as illustrations. Also the paintings of Paul Klee - this is me going for a walk with the bricks :). I think the half mosaic half 2D sculpture is an interesting new technique for me. I also love working with negative space; these work as indications of pattern used in non-representatioal terms to delineate proximities. I'm trying to employ modernist language in LEGO to create an illustration of a classic modernist short story.
