LEGO CREATIONS

Few things have influenced my writing more than the creativity of Lego bricks. I never outgrew them; rather, I find that the older I get, the more I grow into Lego. On this page you can browse a few of the things I've built over the years--no instructions, just pure imagination. If you want to see more of anything, just click on its title and it will take you to a gallery.

Mark Twain'd! 

"I haven't any right to criticize books, and I don't do it except when I hate them. I often want to criticize Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can't conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Every time I read Pride and Prejudice I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone." --Mark Twain

The Suave Jerk

Of all my vignettes to date, I'm probably most proud of this set. Built for a vignette storytelling contest, it contains four small scenes that connect to form a loop. I'm especially pleased with the stained-glass windows; this was my first experiment with those and the candelabra. Featured on VignetteBricks.

Scenes from the Book of Mormon

My Lego renditions of scenes from the Book of Mormon have gotten the most attention out of all my Lego work, thanks to features on LDS Living and We Talk of Christ, We Rejoice In Christ. Every scene in this project has been built as a vignette so far, but the next installment will be big. I'm excited to reveal it once it's completed!


Lehi Sees the Tree of Life

Early in the Book of Mormon, the prophet Lehi sees a vision of a tree whose fruit brings happiness to whoever eats it. The tree and its fruit symbolize the love of God.





The Great and Spacious Building

In the same vision, Lehi also sees a large building full of people mocking those who eat the fruit of the Tree. The building has no foundation and eventually falls.





Nephi's Broken Bow

Lehi's son Nephi breaks his steel bow while hunting for food. Starving in the wilderness, his family complains--but Nephi goes to work and makes a new bow.





The Prayer of Enos

Enos prays all day and all night, "wrestling" with God and receiving great promises from Him.





Mormon Abridges the Record

Mormon was a prophet who compiled the historical records that became the Book of Mormon.





Alma Baptizes at the Waters of Mormon

Alma preaches in secret to those who have escaped the oppression of a wicked king. Through baptism, they make a life-changing commitment to Jesus Christ.






Ammon Defends the King's Flocks

Ammon, a Nephite missionary, wins the trust of a Lamanite ruler by defending his flocks from ruffians.





The Ammonites' Vow

Many Lamanites are converted to Christ through Ammon's teaching. They bury their weapons in the ground, making an oath to never shed blood again.





Murder at the Judgment Seat

An assassin murders Pahoran, chief judge over the Nephite people.





The Mists of Darkness

Darkness and destruction cover the Americas following the death of Christ.





"Oh Ye Fair Ones"

Mormon and his son, Moroni, lament the ultimate destruction of the Nephite civilization. Moroni will go on to hide the abridged records of their people, where the prophet Joseph Smith will find them through divine guidance in 1823.
