Peace, bricks and happiness: Lego artist Rodney Dicus on BCM’s NKY History Hour

By day, Rodney Dicus is a firefighter and paramedic with the Burlington fire department. By night (and weekends), he plays with blocks.

Dicus is the founder and president of OKILUG (the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana LEGO User’s Group), a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting and constructing sculptures, buildings, creatures and other imaginative creations from the tiny, multicolored plastic bricks.

He describes himself as a “LEGO enthusiast with a true love of the ‘brick’ who found many like-minded individuals to share the hobby and create, not only awesome builds, but an extended family through building and sharing.”
