VonBrunk's Profile Picture
Julius von Brunk
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
This is the official deviantART page of Baron Julius Alexander von Brunk, an eccentric multimedia artist in New York City! Baron von Brunk is widely known as a master LEGO craftsman whose work has been published in multiple magazines, tech blogs, and has been showcased at an exhibit at Nintendo World Store's flagship location in New York.

Julius is currently employed as a professional graphic designer in the New York metro, and does freelance graphics and photography -- that is of course when he's not busy assembling pieces of plastic to form epic creations. Join Baron von Brunk in all of his creative endeavors – from custom LEGO brick models to illustrations and paintings!

Alright, 3rd-person spiel aside. . .

I also own a minifridge. I'm a tall, reclusive, curly-haired, bearded, pale-skinned, mixed-ethnic, Libertarian with a foul mouth, a hunger for Asian food and energy drinks, and a lust for short-haired girls with tattoos.

Check out my bizarre and amusing website full of LEGO bricks, art, designs, and beardy goodness:

Wonderland Card Warriors Unite
Poster design of my custom Alice in Wonderland Card Warriors, to promote my forthcoming LEGO video parody. Each warrior figure was photographed individually by me, then arranged into a stylized collage. The background is a composite image of several photos of clouds which I shot over a sunny day in Whitestone, Queens NY. The cloud photos were edited in Lightroom and Photoshop to achieve various blended color options, to give the effect of an epic fantasy battle design. In my video (which is in pre-production) the Card Warriors appear at the end in the film's climax during a battle sequence with Alice -- who's mutated from eating mushrooms!
Mecha Mouse
Mickey's Massive Maniacal Mechanical Monster! Support this project on LEGO Ideas!

Introducing the latest in Disney technology, an armed bipedal battle unit piloted by the beloved rodent Mickey Mouse! This menacing action pod is highly-articulated and poseable, as well as durable and sturdy with the usage of Technic ball and socket joints. The top canopy easily retracts to allow our little mouse minifigure to climb inside to maintain the controls. The unit's hands contain hinges for allowing the fingers to grip, such as holding weapons and/or enemy minifigs.

This project was built by me over the course of a few days in late March 2017. The initial brainstorm came about after I constructed a robotic form-fitting suit (like Iron Man's) for the Alice in Wonderland Cheshire Cat minifig. The next logical step was to take the idea further by creating an entire bipedal mecha unit, similar to those in MechWarrior, Gundam, and Star Wars. I ran into no major issues with the construction, except with some obstacles with the design of the big yellow feet. The rest of the project was rather easy and streamlined, with the final step being the transparent bubble canopy.
Aaahh, a real monster!!

A quick little project I built over the course of a Saturday night whilst eating tacos in my attic. I wanted to build a bunch of classic Nickelodeon-themed MOCs, and decided to start with Krumm from Aaahh!!! Real Monsters due to my availability of tan bricks.

I started with the eyes/hands, then worked my way downwards to the feet. A major challenge was creating the mouth, because of limitations with medium azure pieces in my collection.
7 Years in New York
On this day, exactly seven years ago I left my home of humble blue collar work in rural Pennsylvania -- and embarked on a journey to the New York City metro. After settling in Jersey City and eking out an existence working third-shift in retail, I soon found an entry level graphics job in Manhattan for a small electronics company in March 2010. From there I migrated to Brooklyn and eventually Queens -- then within time I steadily grew my creative portfolio from multiple companies into that of a senior graphic designer. For everyone who had faith in my creative endeavors and encouraged my farfetched aspirations, I thank you for another successful year. Having only ever earned a high school diploma but never attending college, this career of mine is a result of my own talents, hard work, and ingenuity.

Hopefully within the year I’ll help launch a new electronics company. Mum’s the word.

Hail to the Baron!
For Those About to MOC
"Adult Fans of LEGO: For those about to make original creations, we salute you."

This was made specifically for an Instagram contest for music-related photos. A lot of the album covers people were recreating in LEGO were based on cheesy top 40 pop singers, so I decided to turn up the power and pay tribute to my favorite Australian hard rockers! The cannon was previously built for some historical vignettes, and I shot it on front of an orange piece of paper. Later in Lightroom and Photoshop I adjusted the colors to make it appear more subdued with the background.

"Baron von Brunk's Batmobile Brick Build-a-Thon Bonanza!"… - Facebook event page

Next Saturday in Times Square, the folks at Ripley's Believe it or Not have commissioned me to do a jolly good performance art event to kick off the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises — I shall be assembling a giant 5-foot Batmobile sculpture entirely from over 12,000 LEGO pieces, from start to finish — hopefully under 24 hours!

If you're in the New York City area, mosey on down to Ripley's on July 21st and watch me make history! Bring me a pizza and some cans of Monster.

… Baturally, you'd agree.

- Baron von Brunk
