David Cole, creator of the taxidermy-style animals made out of Legos, is interviewed by the New York Times' Rima Suqi.
Mr. Cole, a 26-year-old Web designer from California who lives in Brooklyn, created a palm-size Lego model of a mounted deer head in early November. He submitted it to what he calls "a couple blogs friendly to nerdy design stuff," and it soon went viral. The design may not be large or overly complex, but it clearly struck a chord: he has more than 1,500 orders to fill. He has just added a fox and a bear to the line.
