THATBRICK.ORG! is the brainchild of Gary and Steve, two LEGO® enthusiasts that met at a show in 2019 and are both based in the south of the UK. During the period of COVID-19 lockdown, boredom set in for many Lego enthusiasts and as a result... THATBRICK.ORG! was born!
Gary developed his love of LEGO later on in life. After helping his daughter publish a book, (Naughtily, Natalie) which she wrote at just 4 years of age, Gary came up with the idea to build a 3D mosaic as a keepsake. Gary had spent a few years building various sets of different sizes up to this point, so Naughtily Natalie was his first MoC. A few months and over £150 worth of loose parts later, the 15inch square was complete. From then, Gary decided to build his prize piece of a 35x45in Hogwarts House Crest mosaic, keeping with the 3D themes. This spurred the desire to start displaying at events and, within 6 months, had displayed the model several times and even had the build signed by ten actors and filmmakers from the franchise!
Steve has been a fan of LEGO® since he was a kid himself. Starting with some very old space themed sets in the mid 80's, for some reason he decided to sell his Lego for other things (probably teenage mutant ninja turtles related or something!), much to his regret. However all these years later he has decided to get back in the game, now the sky's the limit!
