The scene was set Cadel Evans looked to be a shoe in to win the 2011 Le Tour de France, then the phone call came Austral Bricks, needed a detailed design for a 10 metre square mosaic brick wall. Starting with a grid of some five thousand bricks I begin the mammoth task of colouring the bricks one by one using only reference material and my illustrative brain as tools. The image builds up gradually like pixels on a screen one colour at a time.
Just found out Cadel has won, “Go Aussie” an incredibly inspiring performance. I must pedal faster this wall needs to be built in seven days time. OK Cadels head looks correct good likeness, now what about the background Aussie flag perfect. Using only nine different coloured glazed bricks takes attention to detail to a new level, one brick out of place or the wrong colour can make or break the design. Almost done tweak a few more bricks ready to go, Austral Bricks BrickArt wall number 35 finished 4929 full bricks and 2774 half-bricks.
New hill climb count Bricks and detail instructions for the Bricklayers who have 4 days to build a 10 metre square multicoloured brick wall. Each Colour Brick needs to be placed exactly, full and half bricks. Finally on the podium and Cadel has been built by Austral Bricks at their Craigieburn – Wollert plant, we’re hoping another version will end up in Barwon Heads Cadel Evans Australian home, “Go Aussie”.
