Last year Lego artist and graphic designer Mike Doyle released the very popular book Beautiful LEGO. It featured images of Lego artworks from various artists that showcased a whole range of beautifully realised models using this brick-building toy. From intricate futuristic cityscapes to mythical creatures and spaceships, the pieces were as varied as they were stunning.
He's now released a followup called Beautiful LEGO 2: Dark. Released in November last year it features aliens, robots, creepy-looking insects and shadowy scenes, taking an intriguing journey to the darker side of Lego building.
Dark explores some of the darker moc creations I've seen with chapters including: Creepy Crawlers, Biomimicry, Future Shock, Dragon Lore, Evil Attunement, Skin and Bones, Dark Towers, Greed Co., Unlimited and Patriot Axe, to name a few. Also, we take a look at the lighter side of dark with Ocean Depths, Indulgences, Mythos and Little Spooks. (via)
It's the second book in what Doyle says will be a long-running series, each one exploring a different theme like "bright", "nature" and "characters/personalities".
