Samuel Hatmaker grew up in rural Michigan, spent two decades in New York City, and now travels like a gypsy.
For years he’s designed and developed children’s toys for Marvel, DC, Hello Kitty, Nickelodeon, Disney, Crayola, Mattel, Hasbro and many more. In addition to his professional work, he creates dolls, action figures, costumes, prop pieces, lamps and LEGO art.
Samuel has been a LEGO fan all his life. Throughout his childhood he built houses and spaceships, mostly. His recent LEGO works include minifigures, articulated characters, busts and the Golden Girls LEGO Set — the most supported set in LEGO Ideas history.
His portrait series “Chicks With Bricks” combines pop icons and LEGO bricks, two major influences. He is especially drawn to the spectacle of big business fabricating fun.
