On this page, we present the authors and other designers whose models are offered by The Brickworms.
The author of the books How to Build Brick Cars and How to Build Brick Airplanes is an extremely prolific LEGO® modeller. Peter Blackert has published hundreds of drawings of LEGO vehicles so far, including cars, lorries, motorcycles and buses.
In real life, he works as a design engineer at the Ford Motor Company’s Asia-Pacific research and development centres in Geelong and Melbourne, Australia. His professional focus is developing powertrains and chassis systems.
Beasts from Bricks is the first instructional book by sculptor and LEGO® artist Ekow Nimako.
Ekow Nimako studied Fine Arts at York University and has since used LEGO exclusively in his sculptural practice. Along with his uniquely fluid building style, Nimako’s keen attention to form and content deeply rooted in other-worldly black narratives has enabled his artwork to transcend the iconic bricks and reach new heights of materiality and substance. In 2019, his work can be seen in Seoul, Toronto, Berlin, and the UK. He lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
Former gardener and tree surgeon Thomas Poulsom only reignited his passion for LEGO in recent years, with his LEGO Ideas project surpassing the required 10,000 supporters mark and being made into an official set (Birds 21031) in 2015. He subsequently penned a book with 15 additional designs for birds, Birds from Bricks, which led to him acquiring the nickname of ‘Lego birdman’. Thomas accepts commissions in his new career as a LEGO designer and is based in Bristol, UK.
