Raise Your Brick – Fantasy Minifigures Series
It is Minifigure Monday, the day where we celebrate the amazing LEGO® Minifigure through art. For the last couple of months, I have been revealing one new character in my Brickstock Fantasy Minifigures Series each week. These are custom drawn characters inspired by my favorite recording artists. I made twelve to represent a full Minifigures Series. We have already seen Build On, #FreeBRICKney, Brick It Up, Hollabrick Girl, SNOT Criminal, Heart of Brick, Kid Brick, Jagged Little Brick, Weird Al Yankobrick, Bricks Don’t Lie, and Who Says You Can’t Go Build. This week, I share the final entry: Raise Your Brick, inspired by P!nk.
P!nk release her debut single, There You Go, in 2000. I was in my freshman year in CEGEP (a strange level in the Quebec education system equivalent to grade 12 and the first year of university everywhere else). I liked the song from the get-go. Her follow up album featured a duet with Steven Tyler, and I was hooked. P!nk has grown into one of my favorite artists in the ensuing years. Oddly enough, I have yet to see her in concert. However, I have produced LEGO®-related content inspired by P!nk before in the form of a LEGO-fied album cover.
This was not my first P!nk inspired LEGO® artwork.
This week’s drawing uses a look from P!nk’s most recent music video, All I Know So Far. The video opens with her falling from the sky into a desert. Interestingly, later in the video we also get a guest appearance from another member of the Brickstock Fantasy Minifigures Series, Cher. But I digress… Ultimately, I tried to take P!nk’s first outfit from the video and adapt it for this character. I took the new blue hairpiece seen in the Fall 2021 City lineup. The character from Wheelie Stunt Bike (60296) wears it. I took other inspiration from the character as well in terms of the belt, jacket, and top pattern. I simply recolored them. There were no rough sketches on paper for this one. It was a process of drawing digitally and refining vector lines as I went.
This character was inspired by P!nk and the Wheelie Stunt Bike (60296) set.
12 weeks, 12 custom Minifigure inspired drawings. With Raise Your Brick, Brickstock has come to an end. This was such a work of love; I am a little sad it is over. These Brickstock characters were a project years in the making. I started them in 2019 with no clear goal of what they were for. It turned into an entire fantasy Minifigures Series. You spend so long preparing something, and one day it is behind you. However, I am already hard at work on a new series. It might be a while before they are ready to share, but rest assured they are coming. Hopefully you all enjoyed tuning in for these weekly characters as much as I enjoyed sharing them.
Until next time,
