JR Schmidt, 3D Artist & Motion Designer, has created this beautiful LEGO graphic interpretation of New York City; utilizing a variety of maps and satellite imagery to set the elevation and color of the blocks. The graphic highlights Manhattan and features some of the outer boroughs. Schmidt used different opacities for each individual LEGO block in order to represent the variety of elevation that the city has to offer.

You can purchase prints and iPhone cases from Society 6. If you want to see more of Schmidt’s work you can view some exquisite pieces here.
