3D artist J.R Schmidt loved building things out of Lego as a child; now he’s combined his obsession and his artistic training to bring us these beautiful prints. These ones of Manhattan and surrounding boroughs were created using a series of satellite imagery and maps of New York to set the elevation and colour of the Lego blocks.

Heavily influenced by video games, Schmidt became interested in the polygonal look when forced to design low poly 3D assets for a Flash app at school. The design aesthetic stuck with him, and features heavily in his work now.
