So I broke my ankle earlier this fall, which has given me plenty of time to do things like watch old ski movies, play video games, and clean out my closet. While finishing the closet-cleaning part of that list, I came across several massive boxes of old Legos, and since dusting off the Legos seemed like a better time investment than playing another 30 hours of video games, I decided to combine two awesome things: Legos and skiing.
These images are made with a free application called Lego Digital Designer, which I initially used in the planning phase of the Chad’s Gap shot, and then kept using for the final renders when it became apparent that building the physical sets would take several years and an enormous amount of money. Plus, building with Legos on a laptop is very mobile, and the ability to copy and paste bricks is really nice.
For my 10,000th post and 10 year anniversary on NS, I present a collection of iconic skiing images as Lego!
I had been working on this one when the news came out about JP. Wish he'd been able to see it.
Here's what I'm working on now: the kangaroo flip.
