A few years back I had the pleasure of working with Matthew McNerney and RAA to design dioramas for the Lego museum that just opened in Denmark. I’ve created reportage illustrations in some of the worlds most exciting cities, but to create reportage illustrations of a Lego world that only existed in my mind was the most fantastic reportage of all! Below are some of the drawings I made for the design of the City Zone, Town and Country Zone, and Island Amusement Park zone. As they are production drawings they were sent over to Denmark during construction, to be used as a reference, so please excuse the quality of some of the scans and photos of the works in progress. You can see a few pictures of the finished exhibit at the bottom of this post. What a great feeling it is to see my drawings come to life! Thanks to RAA for the opportunity and especially to Matthew for his great direction on this – we had a blast making ourselves laugh with all of the little stories we embedded into the illustrations. Can’t wait to see the finished dioramas at the museum – –
Besides the three main dioramas, there were plenty of additional scenes to be illustrated – –
Did I already mention that this was a fun job? LOVED it! I hope you enjoy seeing these drawings and finding the stories inside them. I really enjoyed making them.
