Vintage Mac in Lego looks good enough to use

The only thing that can top building something incredible with Legos is taking a good photo of it. Chris McVeigh does both.
The graphic and Web designer is a wizard with bricks and a lens. His latest creation marks the recent 29th anniversary of Steve Jobs’ release of the original Apple Macintosh in January 1984. It’s just too cute for school.
Based in Halifax, Canada, McVeigh has designed custom builds and images for Gizmodo, Esquire Malaysia, and Toronto magazine Spacing. When he first gets an idea for the classic Mac or, as seen in the gallery below, a vintage camera, he uses Lego’s modeling app for designers, Lego Digital Designer.
‘The advantage of starting off a project digitally is that I can play around with thousands of bricks without actually having them sitting out in front of me, which can be a problem when you have as many bricks as I do,” says McVeigh, who gets his bricks from stores or online retailers. “But that said, I always seem to need bricks that I don’t have with each new build.”
