You know we love a good LEGO art project, and we are really enjoying Aaron Savage's collection of famous album covers reimagined in LEGOS. We never thought Bowie, Pink Floyd, Saturday Night Fever or the Smiths would looks so good in LEGOS. Can you guess most of the covers? Plenty after the jump . . .

You know it, we know it, everyone knows it; we love LEGO art. Atlanta-based filmmaker Walt Thompson just created this incredible and time-consuming stop motion of a marriage proposal. The best part?It documents the proposal and courtship of his girlfriend Nealey Dozier.

Hamburg-based agency Npire needed the perfect divider to break off their kitchen from their office space. So, instead of building the typical wall, the team of designers used over 55,000 LEGO bricks to construct a 9-foot wall. It only cost €2,500 and took one year to complete. Only.

We used to love getting a good LEGO set under the Christmas tree, and Brooklyn-based David Cole created a bit of a stir a few weeks ago when he created a set for a taxidermy deer LEGO sculpture. After interviews with the NY Times, and selling 250 deer sets with over a thousand on hold, Cole has now released sets of a fox and a bear.

Reality can be a bit of a blur, so in order to do a proper "Year in Review" for 2011, the London Guardian went to a Lego Flickr group to have them recreate and reenact the best and biggest stories of the calendar year. Occupy protests, London riots, royal weddings, and the Osama Bin Laden raid are just a few of the documented Lego moments of '11.

Now we have really begun the Holiday season. Nothing screams our attention more than something made of Legos that really shouldn't be made of Legos. Take this Christmas tree, a massive one at that, made of Legos that is standing in the center of the very busy St Pancras Station in London. Approved.

It just doesn't seem normal that an 8-foot Lego man recently washed up on the shore of Siesta Key Village, Florida. On the chest of this massive Lego man is the message, "No real than you are." The project seems to be the work of Ego Leonard (which we read may be connected to collective Du Fois) and looks to be connected to other Lego men who washed ashore in Zandvoort, Holland, three years ago, and then in Brighton, England.

We weren't quite sure what to call what Chris McVeigh does per se, but when you can recreate an entire scene of Thriller with a Lego Michael Jackson and Lego dancing zombies, you are pretty sure to be a favorite in our Lego art obsession.
