Earlier this year I was asked to design a piece for LEGO’s 50th Anniversary celebrations in
Australia. Awesome. No, really. Best gig ever.
The theme was ‘Play’, and I came up with the ‘Mocktopuss’, a deep sea creature who was afflicted with the need for scuba gear and a fear of seaweed. It stemmed from a game I play with my boyfriend where we go hunting for supercute snack food packaging from asian grocery stores.
You can see some of the other pieces included in the Festival of Play on the official website, and read all about the artists involved. Thanks LEGO and thanks OneGreenBean for an excuse to muck around with one of my favourite toys.
