(Written by William) Making LEGO mosaics is not a new concept. In fact, LEGO fans have been designing and building them for as long as small LEGO tiles, bricks, and plates have been available.

While watching the American version of the LEGO Masters competition TV series, one thing that stood out for me the most is how often Amie Corbett and Jamie Berald – LEGO Senior Designers and judges of the show – emphasized the importance of color.
