A Lego Experiment

While watching a certain 1980s film with friends a few weeks ago, I noticed how colour coded the characters were. Rather than emulate them with Lego minifigures as I usually would, I wanted to distill them into something much simpler and the LEGO Imagine ads from 2012 came to mind. Using this simple 2×2 stud […]

A little more Lego

Posted on May 2, 2013 in Lego

So I’ve been busy with my Lego again. Here’s LEGO Daft Punk. Here’s a LEGO version of the Butterfield Diet, starring Brian Butterfield (based on this sketch from The Peter Serafinowicz Show). Brian was so kind as to make the photo his Twitter profile pic! And finally here’s Mr Manchester himself, LEGO Tony Wilson. I […]

LEGO Lord of the Rings Celebrities

Posted on Dec 20, 2012 in commercial work, Lego

Warner Bros. were so pleased with my work creating minifigures to send to celebrities to promote the LEGO Batman 2 videogame, that they asked me to create even more for the LEGO Lord of the Rings game! Of course I was thrilled to take up the challenge again and received lots of free LotR sets […]

LEGO Shenanigans

Posted on Nov 6, 2012 in Lego

I took the time recently to photograph some of my LEGO minifigure versions of characters from the TV show Supernatural and the hard as nails videogame Dark Souls, both firm favourites of mine. They are all official LEGO pieces apart from Castiel’s trench coat, I cheated a bit there, ssshhh! There’s more photos of the […]

LEGO Superhero Celebrities for LEGO Batman 2

Posted on Jul 26, 2012 in commercial work, Lego

A couple of months back, I was contacted by the PR company for LEGO Batman 2 and asked if I could create superhero versions of UK celebrities using only official LEGO parts to promote the launch of the game on June 22nd. Of course, I said I’d be thrilled to. The celebs I heard back […]

Cadwell’s Thought Bubble Lego Hunt!

Posted on Nov 29, 2011 in Lego

In my pre-Thought Bubble blog post I mentioned that I would be holding a Lego Hunt where people had to search the show for 10 Lego versions of comic creators. The hunt went down really well with over 20 people claiming the prize pack of comics, a print and badges. Seeing groups of kids running […]

LEGO Shortlist

Posted on Nov 2, 2011 in commercial work, Lego, news

Back in January I was thrilled to have my Lego Mad Men featured on Shortlist Magazine’s website. Not long after, the guys there told me the feature had gone down really well and they’d like to commission me to see what else I could do with my minifigure collection. Perhaps recreate some of their covers […]

LEGO Ramones

HEY! HO! LEGO! I’ve been waiting on the Punk Rocker to be released in series 4 of LEGO’s Collectible Minifigures for these awesome LEGO electric guitars and to complete my idea for recreating the legendary Ramones in LEGO form. There’s a full set of photos on my Flickr.

Lego Mad Men

Posted on Jan 26, 2011 in Lego, news

  Pretending to myself that I didn’t have enough work to do at the moment, I recently undertook a little Lego side project; to create a set of Lego minifigures based on the TV show Mad Men. I have long been a fan of Lego, particularly the minifigures, and I’m particularly tickled by the range […]
