Dude Plays With LEGO For A Living


Posted June 1, 2007 - By Mike D'Alonzo

Virtually insuring that he would never again have a date, Nathan Sawaya, a former lawyer, quit his job and went to work as a LEGO artist. Now, he plays with plastic blocks for a living, and he gets paid. Good work if you can get it. Sawaya now has a series of museum-quality pieces that are on tour, and he also builds custom LEGO sculptures for benefactors who pay for the privledge.

What sort of sculptures? How about monkeys, which he built for talk show host Craig Ferguson and magician David Copperfield? He also did a permanent piece for the New Orleans Public Library, commemorating the devestation of Hurricane Katrina...in LEGOS. And a working air conditioner, which is kind of rad.

Just goes to show, if you're good at playing with something, you should never stop. You might just get paid for it!
