Parade Magazine cover
About this creation

I created this week's cover of Parade Magazine, one of the most highly-circulated magazines in the US, with weekly readership of 70 million people. To accompany their article about rebuilding America's schools the editors wanted me to show an old school being rebuilt into a new, modern one. I personally like the older school better... ;)

The school bus is from my book, Cool Cars and Trucks.





The magazine also filmed a companion video with some tips. I'd like to apologize for the quality of the video, I didn't film, edit, or produce the video... I just stood in front of the camera ;)

Very nice work! And I do mean "Work". This is really top shelf stuff. High visibility... the stuff dreams are made of. Again, well done!

As a Lego fan, I say this is very cool. As a fan of public education, I say this is awesome and I am totally in favor of rebuilding some of our oldest, crumbling school buildings -- but I wish they would maintain the basic architecture of older schools because it just seems right. These new fangled steel and glass things are way to expensive to build and maintain, plus they resemble corporate headquarters, not a place of academic growth. One man's opinion, but that opinion also holds that it is quite an honor for your work to be seen by such a wide audience!

Congratulations on the being on the cover, it looks great. Also, thanks for reminding me of the sideways headlight brick trick, I'd completely forgotten about it due to those new-fangled headlight bricks without the half-plate indent. I'll definitely experiment with it over the next week.

Just by listening I get an impression of you being a really, REALLY nice person. Is taht true? Or are you an evil LEGO pro bent on ruling the world with our favourite little chunks of plastic? I would totally be up for that second part. SEAN KENNEY - THE SUPREME OVERLORD OF THE WORLD!

Very nice build, Sean! Very clean! I like the modern school myself. It makes me think of engineering and designing. Or maybe that's the LEGO geek coming out in me.... or the software engineer coming out... Either way, nice work! That tip is indeed quite useful! Especially when combining it with parts that are not exactly System (1x1 Bricks with studs on 1, 2, or 4 sides). This technique is used quire heavily in my LEGO Domo Kun! Enough rambling on my part. You always amaze, Sean!
