The Surma Brothers Illustrate Their Favorite Lego Sets With Style [Art]
Lego has historically embraced the comic book medium given how nicely it plays with their signature building set instruction booklets. The thing is, usually Lego's magazine and pack-in comics and posters -- like their video games, movies and other multimedia brand extensions -- stick with an official style that essentially brings the toymaker's minifigures to life rather than, say, reimagine building block worlds as something we roundlings might see in the real world. Leave it to brothers Marcin and Przemek Surma of Poland to spice things up with stylish illustrations that allow the blocky denizens of Lego's various space themed lines (and a few others) from the 1980s and '90s to cut loose in a realm where everyone can bend their elbows all the way and don't have massive dimples in their butts and legs. If only they had time to illustrate full comics along the lines of the Papercutz Ninjago books.
You can see a selection of the clearly numbered Lego sets as stylized by the Surma brothers below.
