Boards and Bits
After five years dedicated to the beautification of the boardgame, Mike Doyle found a new calling—Lego sculpture.
It was this summer, on a trip to Legoland with his boys, that Doyle, a 43-year-old graphic designer from New Jersey, rekindled his passion for the building blocks. When he got home he searched the Internet to see what kind of art, if any, people were creating with Lego. He discovered sculptors, like Nathan Sawaya, who use the bricks to create art pieces much bigger than your average play set. “I had no idea that Lego could be manipulated to the degree that people were doing,” he says.
