Built for Brickworld Chicago 2015 for the "Brick Time Stories" collaborative, this vignette is built on an open book and based on Maurice Sendak's timeless picture book, Where the Wild Things Are.
About this creation
As a child, Where The Wild Things Are was one of my favorite stories. The character Max, shown throughout the book wearing his wolf suit, required some crazy uses of non-recessed headlight bricks to create a box with tiles and jumper-plates on every side.
Fantastic build Max. The characters are spectacular, well-nigh perfect, but I think the tree really ties everything together. Without it the build would lack context, and the source book has such lush dark foliage that including the tree is the keystone. Excellent work.
