I had some spare time tonight so I could do a second spread today – I also realised that I have to wait till the 29th of the month before “Draw something architectural” comes up on the list and really craving to draw a building or two.
As I said in the text above… Not happy that Bert really fitted the category properly…so got thinking. My favourite toy was definitely LEGO and a very exciting experience in recent years was the re-discovery of my lego books – it brought back the inspiration from the past (much more that the lego blocks themselves) …so this page is dedicated to that experience!
BTW 1- I de-lego-ed these buildings for the purposes of my sketch
BTW 2 – While sketching this I had a thought inspired by the cantilevered balcony that it would be fun to build a Frank Lloyd Wright building in lego so I am highly amused to discover thanks to google that there is an “architecture’ range of Lego…and you can get Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater in lego – WOW! But I don’t think they will ever make a Borromini building in lego!?!
BTW 3 – I never had the pieces to make these – well I did attempt the red and blue building but couldn’t even start the yellow – they intrigued me though being so different from the normal
BTW 4 – I think I was destined to be an architect….
I forgot to mention that the best part of the previous Bert page is….
that I made Bert Borromini’s size and only attached him to the base of the page so he practically jumps out of you when you open the spread – now if I had kept up my pop-up book skills I would remember how to make him truly pop-up!
