Did you know that we create custom LEGO sculptures too? This piece was designed and launched for some Twitch employees working at home.
This piece, dubbed “Bleed Purple” 💜 is a 3D freestanding sculpture designed to look like the heart is dripping with purple blood. (The colors of the Twitch logo are purple, so to say you’re a die-hard Twitch fan is to say you bleed purple.)
A team manager at Twitch commissioned Brickworkz to make the design and package 80 kits for some employees at Twitch to assemble at their home offices. What a creative and fun way to “stay connected” with remote teams!
The creative challenge here was to design a model that would be challenging and fun for beginners to create, require no glue, and stand freely on display.
To achieve the look with the parts Lego has available, I made an upside-down gray heart. I mounted it to a dark purple “wall” backing that shows through to create the appearance of dripping blood and give the sculpture depth and shadows. The heart’s base is designed to be bottom-heavy for proper balance. I even found a great use for the dark purple octopus piece- makes for a perfect purple blood splatter!
And finally, a custom LEGO minifigure was ordered to represent the at-home worker in the Covid era (we used Ninja masks which worked perfectly!)
If you have a sculpture idea under about 3 feet in height, let’s talk! The process takes us longer than mosaics to conceive, design, and plan, but the results are happy memories that last!
