Brick Time Stories
This year at Brickworld Chicago, eight builders, including Max Pointner, Ian Spacek, Matthew Oh, Lee Muzzy, Daniel Church, Ben Merrill, and Casey McCoy each built a scene from a children's picture book or novel. The scenes were constructed on bases made to look like books, and were arranged into a veritable library of illustrations at the expo. My contribution to the collaboration was the quarterstaff duel between Robin Hood and Little John drawn from the classic story by Howard Pyle.
About this creation
It was such a pleasure doing yet another collaboration with these fine gentlemen. Keep an eye out for each of these stupendous builds as their builders post them online in the coming weeks.


For our display at Brickworld, Max Pointner and I brought the entirety of the Encyclopedia Britannica, along with a couple dozen other books to use as risers for the vignettes.










Max Pointner's "Where the Wild Things Are" which won "Best Vignette" at the convention.


Ian Spacek's "Harry Potter."


Casey McCoy's "Frankenstein."


Lee Muzzy's "An Unexpected Party" from "The Hobbit."


Ben Merrill's "Corduroy."


Dan Church's "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe."


Matthew Oh's "Robin Hood."


And my own "Robin Hood."

Thanks for stopping by, and Soli Deo Gloria!

Ingenious idea for a display, and great work on your contribution! The overflowing river is excellent, it really adds to the sense of dynamic combat you depict. The foliage is also quite natural looking. Of course, the figures steal the show, as you yet again build a pair of incredible brick-builts. Love the use of fabric pieces, and fantastic posing.

This was such an awesome display. It was a much welcome and well thought out presentation that captured the intimacy of simply being one with a good read. It is such an artistic talent to really be able to tone back grandeur and concentrate subtlety into something so beautifully cohesive. You guys are truly some of the most impressive builders and are so deserving of more. Looking forward to what comes next from you as it never EVER disappoints. Absolutely stunning!

Looks great! I really like the books as bases for each vig. I'm really bummed I couldn't make it to Brickworld this year to see all these in real life. Will you be posting a recap of the whole event at any point?
