    You are the Lego King!
    But seriously-this is the best example I’ve ever seen of the relationship between math and art!
    They should teach it in schools………

    Our son is handicapped and has the mind of an 8 yr old and plays with his legos everyday building things other than the models with instructions. He spends endless hours playing with them. He and I are amazed at your talent. You are truly a master at what u do. We sure enjoyed viewing your masterpieces. Thanks for sharing your artwork. Absolutely AMAZING!

    i agree with leon and ryne. its not always about the money. but im sure that he could sell his lego art if he wanted to so yeah, there is probably money in this. also, I too have a lot of legos. i wonder if they would let me do this at work when we arent busy???

    Still, leaving his job as a LAWYER to play with Legos all day… I’m not sure if that’s idiocy or ingenious.

    That is incredible. That would be a great way to make a living in my opinion. A unique style of art. And I think that he is in alot of the pictures because it gives you a perspective on how large they are.
