VonBrunk's Profile Picture
Julius von Brunk
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
This is the official deviantART page of Baron Julius 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 video game 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 for a sports promotion company in Long Island, and does freelance graphics for consumer electronics. Aside from being an overall quirky action figure aficionado and mutton chop extraordinaire, Julius is also a freelance burlesque promoter who aims to please the nerd girls of the scene! Join Baron von Brunk in all of his creative endeavors – from custom LEGO brick models to illustrations, paintings, and even promotional material for upcoming NYC events!

Alright, 3rd-person spiel aside. . .

I also own a minifridge. I'm a tall, reclusive, curly-haired, bearded, pale-skinned, mixed-ethnic, bespectacled 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 sideburns:

I am Unvincible! by VonBrunk
I am Unvincible!
Self-portrait with one of my blinking LEGO Super Mario Invincibility Starmen, shot in raw and edited in Lightroom. I can assure you I'm not wearing eyeliner: I just have unusually long eyelashes for a guy.
Head Wound by VonBrunk
Head Wound

Hey! What what what is that thing on on on on on my leg!? Hey, hey. . . I, I I’m bleedin’! Ow, my head, ughhh. What’s that–what’s that thing on my leg!? It’s a. . . Piece of my head, ughhh.

Shirtless self-portrait shenanigans with hard lighting, high contrast, and gluing LEGO pieces to my face.

Run For it, Marty! by VonBrunk
Run For it, Marty!
An outdoor shot I've been meaning to do for a while using the official LEGO Back to the Future set and some Civil War minifigures. The Union solders are mainly made from the Cavalry soldiers in the Lone Ranger sets, slightly adjusted for historical accuracy. The Confederates are photographed advancing from the rear, as their torsos are just miscellaneous dark bodies -- as there aren't any official LEGO torsos that have grey military uniforms. The kepis, however, fortunately are available in both blue and grey. I wanted to have more Union solders advancing, but unfortunately those Cavalry torsos were kind of expensive. I shot this photo on a hill along a staircase in a small park in Great Neck, NY.
1-Up by VonBrunk
I fell off a cliff and died, but it’s okay — I’ve got another guy.

Black fabric backdrop with a bunch of random Christmas lights and an f/1.8 aperture for that spherical bokeh effect. To the left is a white light softbox, and to the right is a hard green spotlight. In the hand is one of my electronic LEGO Super Mario Bros. mushrooms.
Riding His Harley by VonBrunk
Riding His Harley
Outdoor nighttime photography in Long Island City with my Batman minifigs. This shot took forever to successfully get, because I used a super slow shutter speed (2-3 seconds) and frequently dealt with the wind blowing the figures over.

"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.
