Just because National Donut Day may technically be over (it was last Friday), there's no reason to stop talking about America's favorite morning sweet treat. Or, better yet, devoting fan art to it.
That's exactly what Andy Bauch has done. The Downtown LA-based artist is known for crafting massive designs using only LEGOs. In the past, he's done portraits, landscapes, and even reproductions of other famous art by people like Roy Lichtenstein. His latest, though, is a doughnut doozy.
The 21 x 36 inch portrait is a colorful re-imagining of the iconic Randy's Donuts in Inglewood, whose looming brown logo is seen by tens of thousands of LAX travelers every day. Comprised of some 5,308 LEGO pieces, the mosaic is a fun look at one of LA's most memorable food logos, and took hours to come together.
Scan through Bauch's other work here, some of which is also food-based. There's the sign for Pink's Hot Dogs, and Culver City's own Helms Bakery complex logo, for example. And when you're done, head out to grab a doughnut yourself from one of Los Angeles' essential shops.
