LEGO Escher is an amazing collection of some of the more famous prints by famous surrealist M.C. Escher rendered in LEGO. There's tons more like this at LUGNET (LEGO International Users Group Network).

Some of those Escher models are pretty sweet. My favorite lego sites: FoundryDX and Brick Commander.

If I had the time to do something like that, I would do something else.

languagehat is too subtle:

M.C. Escher + Lego = ? was the title bhell13 used a year and eight days ago when posting this link--one not hard to find if one looked before posting.

yes, but in accordance with the latest papal decreee, a certain rhythm in double-posting is to be overlooked.

Booo! I was mildly unimpressed until I got to this one and said "WOW! Now they've really accomplished something!" - only to find it was done with Photoshop. Booo.

Plus it's a double, not that I noticed, of course.

Where do they get these huge amounts of LEGO bricks and pieces?

Student loans and second mortgages.

It didn't flag as a double when I posted it, but I offer my apologies to the community...

It happens. The google search is your friend.

This is very cool, the fact that the guy wrote all kinds of algorithms to model the waterfalls and other "randomness" is pretty impressive.
Makes me feel bad for wasting my time wasting sprites in Vice City instead of building these things.

This combines two of my favorite things in the whole world, Escher because seeing the impossible is just plain good for the brain to try and wrestle with. And Legos because there are no better toys for fostering imagination in kids.

Cool link and its been added to my permanent collection. Now I'm off to check out the Lego Users Group.
