#6: become a lego artist

Photobucket
Corporate lawyer turned sculptor, Nathan Sawaya, travels the country sharing his work. His medium? LEGO® bricks.

Sawaya’s exhibition, The Art of the Brick, features works constructed from nearly one million Lego pieces. Sawaya created a replica of the Brooklyn Bridge spanning 7 feet and a life-size tyrannosaurus rex skeleton. He even built a sculpture of Stephen Colbert and created a portrait of Keith Olbermann.  Yes, with Legos!

Sawaya’s been a guest on Countdown with Keith Olbermann and David Letterman and has been featured in The Washington Post, Newsday and the Los Angeles Times.  You can’t tell me the law degree didn’t contribute to that! He’s certainly more interesting than the thirty year old guy with no job, who lives with his parents and plays with blocks.

Amazing.

(I’m inspired… thinking Play-Doh®)
