Gorton's Fisherman
Sean created 8 identical sculptures of the Gortons' Fisherman, which visited 100 supermarkets across the US in 2006.
About this creation
In November 2005, Gorton's Seafood commissioned Sean to build 8 sculptures of the Gortons' Fisherman, as seen in their logo.
Coming to a supermarket near you
From February 25, 2006 to March 19, 2006, the sculptures visited about 100 supermarkets across the United States, in areas near Los Angeles, Chicago, Indianapolis, San Antonio, Harrisburg, and Charlotte.  (See full schedule below.)  Two of the sculptures are on permanent display at Gorton's headquarters in Massachusetts and their marketing firm's headquarters in Chicago.







Each sculpture is 2 feet tall from the waist to the head, and contains about 6,000 LEGO elements.  If you stacked the LEGO bricks from all 8 Gortons' Fishermen one on top of another, they'd reach higher than the Empire State Building! The entire project spanned from four months, including over 350 hours of model building.

(A funny coincidence: midway through this project, Sean was asked to build Disney's Nemo and Marlin.  What are the chances he would be asked to build a fish & a fisherman at the same time?) :)

Awesome. I always eat Gorton's seafood. Heh. Of course, the model is perfect and it's absolutely amazing that you were able to build EIGHT of them. Did you build all of them by hand, yourself? Dang, I bet you got tired of looking at this guy!
  February 15, 2006
Awesome, I don't know how you could have the genius to get all the bricks, build it, then build it 7 times over again. Awesome.

Great as usual. I see it will be coming to my city, I'll be sure to check it out!
