With a panel of host Adam Mangum and three guests, this episode is an exploration of the differences between the books and movies and a celebration of the Wizarding World.

012: LEGO art with artist Jen Raine Smart

December 5, 2017

We all played with LEGO as kids, and heck, probably as an adult. But few of us use it as art or turn it into a business. At Salt Lake Comic Con, I met Jen Raine Smart, a lego artist. I was intrigued by a life-size Wonder Woman she made for the con. Jen got her start with murals, then progressed to 3-D statues. We talk about how she got started, how she picks her subjects, and what’s next in her progression as an artist.
