Have yourself illustrated as a minifig

Posted by ,

Here's something rather cool: Will Wiggins is an illustrator/designer based out of NYC in the USA. He creates illustrations of people as minifigs. For $5, he'll create original artwork of a person or character as a minifig, and for an extra $10 will make a physical minifig to match.

He contacted me a month or so ago and offered to do an illustration of me, and here is the result, which is based on this picture of me at LEGOWorld. A pretty good match, I reckon!

You can commission your own artwork on Fiverr (the world's largest marketplace
for small services). I'm thinking of getting the forum admins one each for use as our avatars. What do you think, guys? :-)

It's a shame that more fleshie heads are not released officially by lego. I'd love even 25% of the range of yellow heads to be released as fleshie ones.

This sounds similar to what fellow Bricksetter @MinifigsMe does at http://minifigs.me/
I have had a few of her figs made up of my son and they were first class, sounds around the same figure, about £10.
So Brit's may be better off getting from there.

Love it, a very good rendition I would say Huw. I second skherbeck's request, a photo of the actual Minifigure would be brilliant!

I don't have the minifig, just the artwork, which is a service MinifigsMe doesn't provide (yet).
