HAVE AN IDEA?

Custom LEGO pieces are a great way to attract people of any age. I specialize in a bold, pop culture style of LEGO building. My LEGO pieces are fun, colorful and truly unique. I am always looking for new and exciting LEGO builds, whatever the subject may be. Below are a few of the LEGO areas that may be of interest.


SCULPTURES

Unique three dimensional LEGO works of art to enhance your space.


MOSAICS

Dramatic LEGO pieces great for any area, big or small.


BRANDING

A one of a kind fun LEGO marketing idea for your company logo.

View these pieces as a guide to what is possible with just a few bricks.

PORTFOLIO

View a sampling of my LEGO work below. Hope you're hungry. :)

Big Mac Meal

Almost good enough to eat! I created this LEGO Big Mac Meal piece a while back when I was feeling a bit too hungry. Cant you just smell the french fries?

Marlboros

Here is my latest piece to support the people trying to kick the habit. Luckily my LEGO addiction has no health side effects and neither does my new packs of LEGO smokes.

Campbells Soup

One of my earliest and favorite LEGO pieces as a tribute to one of my favorite pop artists. This is my largest piece to date at 30"x40". Although that will soon be surpassed by the 48"x48" Spam with over 23000 bricks.

Heckscher Museum of Art

Like browsing art? Why not stop by the LEGO Heckscher Museum of Art. This piece is 25x40 and houses great LEGO works of art. A populat spot for many Minifigures.

Tide

Time to get out the LEGO t-shirts which only get clean with LEGO detergent of course. This Tide piece is 20" wide by 15" high and 10" deep which is a bit larger than an average box.

Marilyn - Pink

This work from 2008 was one of my first pieces. This pink Marilyn LEGO mosaic is 20"x20" and was 2 in a series of 3. The other colors were blue and orange. Sold.

NYC Brownstone (Modular)

A classic LEGO NYC brownstone. The models three floors each separate for easy play and the ground level cafe floor can be swapped out for a traditional brownstone design. Interiors to come.

Pepsi Can

Thirsty? Try my LEGO® Pepsi. This LEGO® Pepsi should quench your thirst! You better be very thirsty though, this Pepsi measures over a foot tall.

SMPTE

This is a 9"x9" framed piece is based on the SMPTE color bars used in television. The solid graphic colors translate nicely in LEGO. Really a fun piece.

Coke (2013)

A custom LEGO piece of the iconic Coca Cola bottle thats almost two feet tall!

Apple, Banana & Core (2008)

Feel like a snack, how about some fresh LEGO fruit. This piece is an apple, banana and apple core. Larger than actual size this will be sure to fill you up.

Soup (2012)

Nothing like a hot bowl of LEGO soup. This was created as a spinoff of my LEGO Cambell Soup can design. I intend to build a supermarket type display of stacked LEGO soup cans.

Legend of Zelda Heroes (2013)

Start your own LEGO quest to complete the Triforce! Help me make this a real LEGO set, support it now.

Hershey Bar (2013)

Sweet LEGO chocolate. The iconic Hershey logo type and black wrapper made for an ideal subject matter, the chocolate just about looks like it could melt.

Marilyn - Blue (2008

This work from 2008 was one of my first pieces. This blue Marilyn LEGO mosaic is 20"x20" and was 1 in a series of 3. The other colors were pink and orange. Sold.

Dunkin Donuts (2010)

Saturday mornings have not begun without the LEGO coffee and a couple of donuts. These are actual size Dunkin Donuts coffee and donuts. There are also a couple of sugar packets if needed.

Gold Rush

An alternate build using bricks from the LEGO Mountain Hut and Thunder Wings sets. This gold mine build had a sloping mine entrance that allowed motion, working interior lights in the mine and kitchen stove, and spinning water wheel.

Instagram Icon (2012)

This icon was created as part of a series of social media icons for use as my profile photo for the various networks. Be sure to follow theworldinbricks today!

Lamp (2011)

I had to prepare for the 2011 hurricane so I created this battery powered LEGO lamp to help us through the power outage. Made of a solid black brick base and transparent red top to provide a radiant glow.

Dig Dug Heros

A custom LEGO representation of the classic Dig Dug characters. Part of a series of retro video game characters.

Heckscher Museum of Art (Micro)

Because micro Minifigures need art too... I created the mini Heckscher Museum of Art. Open summer 2014.

Egg (2008)

What better image for March than an egg. This LEGO egg sculpture was completed in 2008 and is around 10" high. Instead of a solid egg, I wanted some feeling of motion with the broken yolk leaking out onto the surface.

Dream (2010)

This piece was a commission for a client who requested to somehow incorporate the word "dream" into a model. After a few creative direction proposals it was set on this final treatment.

Just when you thought it was perfect...You find another brick.

MY STORY

In 2008 I rediscovered a passion for vibrantly colored plastic pieces that occupied so much of my time as a child. I decided to combine this passion with fine arts to create unique works of art. My direction is to further deconstruct contemporary, popular culture through the medium itself, LEGO. The pure, consistent color allows for a uniform and bold graphic style translating perfectly from my background in the graphic design and multimedia arts field. Find out more below.
