10K Club Interview: Meet Jason Allemann and Grant Davis of Pop-Up Book
Introducing Grant Davis (a.k.a. Grant_Davis_) & Jason Allemann (a.k.a. JKBrickworks), the creative wizards of the immersive Pop-Up Book project that achieved 10,000 supporters in September 2017. Where are you from? Grant: Oregon, USA Jason: Canada Where did your interest in this particular model come from? Grant: I have always had a fascination with pop-up books. Once I started to get into the LEGO® universe, I thought it would be interesting to apply some of the same mechanical ideas that pop-up books have to LEGO bricks. After I had proven the concept to work, I wanted to challenge myself to see just how much I could make the outside look like a real book, and how much detail I could pack in the inside of it. Jason: When Grant posted his original Pop-Up Book video, I was blown away, and a little envious that I hadn’t come up with the idea myself! When he contacted me about collaborating to turn it into a LEGO Ideas project, I jumped at the opportunity. How long did it take to complete the model? Grant: I posted my original model in November of 2014, and the final model and project was posted in August of 2016, so it was just a few months shy of being in the works for 2 years.
