So... why LEGO?
Sean's old job Creating art with LEGO bricks is a lot more fun than sitting at the office! After a decade at a "serious" desk job, it was time Sean did something closer to his heart. Because unlike traditional art, kids love it; it gets them excited and creative. And seeing that makes it all worth while.

Does the computer plan it all out?
Sean's design process Absolutely not. (Wouldn't that take all the fun out of it?) Sculptures are more than just shapes; they have to capture the essence of the original. Sean's favorite way to begin a sculpture is to sit down with a big pile of LEGO pieces and start building. After all, that's what you did as a kid, right?
Fun facts
Sean has about 2 million LEGO pieces.
The biggest LEGO sculpture Sean ever made weighed 400 pounds.
Headlight Brick His favorite piece is the "1x1 headlight brick". (You can use it three ways!)
Growing up, the LEGO set Sean wanted most was the Cargo Center. (He never got it.)
Sean tells people he is really only 12 years old. (But his bald spot is starting to give him away.)
Sean and The LEGO Company
