UofL Cardinal PixelBlock

PixelBlocks are small interlocking blocks, similar to Legos in shape, but very different in function. These small colored blocks interlock on their edges and using different colors you can make pictures. While it is really common to make video game characters out of them, think 8 bit Mario, I decided to make a University of Louisville Cardinal head. I used something of a template, a blown up image where the pixels were easily visible, but much of the design was freehanded so some artistic liberty was taken in the final product.

I managed to frame my PixelBlock creation in an adjustable depth shadow box so it is now hanging proudly on the wall in my living room.
