The Czech RepuBrick

    Located in the city of Prague there’s a place, deep under the streets, full of LEGO models. It’s the Czech Repu-Brick. Some funny word play there. They have all kinds of models. Most are based on sights in and around Prague while others showcase superheroes, prisons, exquisite libraries, huge mini figures all made out of LEGO’s. All the LEGO models in the exibition combined make up 2,9 tons of LEGO bricks that took 1885 business to construct. And the end result is quite spectacular.

I want to inspire you to do what you love. It’s never too late, nor too early to start. Greta Thunberg She is proof that young…

    They’re, brave. They’re fierce. They’re corky, they’re…kids? Yep it’s the Heroes of Tomorrow! The idea for this came after watching the trailer for Shazam about a kid who discovers he has super powers. It was during our last month in Seattle before we set off on our 2019 nomadic trip in Europe. I had wanted to make a mini movie and it was when I was discussing ideas with my parents that the idea came. “What if we made something like Shazam? Kids who discover they had super powers?” I loved it. So that’s what we did. We got a few friends together, got costumes, props, everything we needed. The…

    LEGO Hamilton Musical

    Inspired by the broadway musical Hamilton, I’ve built this LEGO recreation of Lin Manuel’s master piece. It was great fun recreating the grand broadway stage and its detail. Before I’ve created LEGO models of movies, historical sights but this is my first musical. I wanted to have everything from the staircase to the turning floor in the center where the final duel takes place. The characters were fun to make as well as I wanted the mini figures to resemble the original cast of the musical. A quick backstory to the making of the musical. Lin Manuel Miranda while acting in the musical In The Heights came across a big…
