Today kicks off Day One of our three-day coverage leading up to the LEGO Masters season one finale this Wednesday night on Fox. We’re kicking it off today with LEGO sculptor and consulting producer on the series, Nathan Sawaya.
When you’re in the middle of raising three Lego crazy boys, and your house has more Lego bricks than dust bunnies, your frame of reference, when it comes to personal heroes, tends to be a bit twisted. You’d better believe that anyone who is known as a “Master Brick Artist” is on the top of […]
In what must seem like a previous life, Nathan Sawaya led the buttoned-down life of a corporate lawyer – just another coat & tie among the other office drones. But now, he’s most often recognized as the most famous ex-LEGO …
A few years ago Nathan Sawaya decided to follow his dream and give up being a lawyer to become a Lego "sculptor." Today, CNN.com had an interesting interview with him: CNN: How difficult was it to make the decision to switch from full-time attorney to fulltime LEGO artist? SAWAYA: It wasn’t very tough. I worked […]

I’ve seen photos of Nathan Sawaya’s Lego sculptures in the past, but up until now I’ve never had the opportunity to see them in person. This weekend The Art of the Brick, Sawaya’s touring show, is opening at Oregon Museum …

Building with LEGO bricks isn’t just for your kids! There are a whole bunch of adult fans of LEGO out there to meet and build with!
I’m no particle physicist, and I am unlikely to ever enter CERN laboratories. But for one brief, shining moment, I could imagine being there. All for the price of a museum ticket.
I don’t have a LEGO problem. I have a storage problem, a finance problem, a “sharing with the spawnlings” problem–and now with two LEGO events in my local area, a “must attend all the LEGO Shows” problem.
Lego has introduced their first disabled minifigure. So why is GeekMom Judy (who is an amputee) so disappointed?
I like big books and I cannot lie. You might like your little digital book device that holds an entire library in your pocket, but there are some things that just aren’t meant to be shrunk down to that size. Here are some great examples of books that are just better in full size—all of them are bigger than your iPad’s screen. Sometimes, more is more.
Legos are internationally cherished small plastic interlocking building blocks and minifigures that can be taken apart and used to build other objects. Over the years, Lego has expanded its creations to include products like gears and pulleys and even electronic parts for constructing programmable robots. As a result, there are popular Lego robotics leagues and […]

There has been much written about the little plastic brick that hails from Billund. Some books talk about the history of LEGO … and you could fill a library with the how-to manuals and blueprints that cover everything from simple …
Yesterday, Neiman Marcus announced some of the items in its 2008 luxury holiday catalog. Among the horse farms, golf courses and other ridiculously decadent gifts, one stands out in a very geeky way: send a few photographs and some other pertinent details and certified LEGO professional, Nathan Sawaya, will create a life-size LEGO replica of […]
Forget Banksy-esque minifig stencil graffiti or Nathan Sawaya’s Art of the Brick — there’s a new brick in town and it’s already on its second museum, the Santiago Calatrava-designed Milwaukee Art Museum. As mentioned earlier this year, Q-BA-MAZE is a modular building system that can be used to create anything from towers to brontosauruses. Each […]
Or, more accurately: "Kid’s first Lego sculpture built from pure imagination." We all get excited by our kids’ various "firsts" but, like our respective excitement when he first walked unaided, my now 4.5-year-old and I were joyous when he concocted a Lego assemblage that was not already proscribed in enclosed instructions. This sculpture is not […]
Oh my! Just when all hope vanishes after losing the "how-to" booklet for Jabba’s Barge, along comes The Brick Factory and (it seems) just about every instruction booklet for every Lego set imaginable. Many a Geekdad will remember that the Lego sets of old were not nearly as complex as some are today. The sets […]
