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:

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.
Bobo by VonBrunk
"Bobo -- my beautiful Bobo! I promise I'll never leave you behind again!"

This is a photo taken from a second outdoor shoot of this concept, in which I found a larger snowbank to use, so that the angle was more stylized. This was shot in a parking lot of a funeral home across the street from my house, whose parking lot was full of high snowbanks. I was able to position my tripod much lower, thus getting a better shot of this scene with the sky in the frame.
Singles Awareness Day by VonBrunk
Singles Awareness Day
For Singles Awareness Day, I'm going to take one of these mushrooms and get really big! You can't stop me, because I have a mushroom! Opponents, beware. . .

Self portrait with my new backdrop frame and softbox kit, along with colored spotlights and Christmas lights. In my hand is one of my Electronic Super Mario Bros. Mushrooms.
Ice Tunnelator by VonBrunk
Ice Tunnelator
Outdoor snow photography with the vintage ‪LEGO‬ Ice Planet 2002 model “Ice Tunnelator.” This was the very first Ice Planet set I ever received as a child. I recall precisely: in early 1993 at age 8, I went on a routine mission to Toys “Я” Us with my stepdad. I headed towards the LEGO aisle to see the new models, and said to myself, “HOLY FOKKER SHRAPNEL!! Ice Planet!!? What!!? They’ve got like, like, neon orange chainsaws!!? WHAT!!?”
The Call of Cthulhu by VonBrunk
The Call of Cthulhu
Please note: I built/photographed this photo initially for Instagram, not knowing this joke has been done already with the same exact minifig. Any resemblance to other gags is strictly coincidental.
  • Mood: Horny
  • Listening to: Motörhead

"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.
