A tribute to all the true heroes of Bionicle. You the fans!

"Mask of time" made from pure protodermis, lie waiting in the sand, waiting to be discovered. Waiting to give it's bearer the ultimate power. Even a Turaga who have seen it all will search for that. The power to change time. The power to create legends. It is right there, grab it and grab it now!

"The stories we hear and the stories we tell, shapes who we are and what we do". This is what I have learned from working with creative storytelling through almost 30 years and no story has proven this stronger than Bionicle. The fans was, is and will be the true heroes of a story that becomes a legend.


I made this piece of Bionicle fan art earlier this year, on request of the french fansite Bionifigs.com. It is a tribute celebrating their 10-years anniversary. At the same time it is a tribute to all who have been a part of this great adventure.
Please share this with all the fans you know. This one is for you!

  1. I really love when you say things like that. I like to know that there are some people that believe great story can have really big value in someone's life. To be honest, one of my biggest dreams is to show the story of Bionicle to other people just to let them know how inspiring and motivational the tales can be (That's actally one of the main reasons I'm into game design). So, well, I hope you won't mind if someday someone will pick up this mask and make good use of it once again ;)

  7. I was there when our friends of Bionifigs gave this major piece of art to our president as a gift of all his efforts to keep our "Unity" and there was a great emotion around us, for sure.
    Just, Thank you for this moment you contributed to give, and thank you for everything.

  10. Do you have a higher resolution of the turaga in the distance? I really like the artwork, but the mask the turaga is wearing is... fascinating.

  11. I love how you made the Vahi the centerpiece of this image. Though the mask is worn, scarred, and has long been disused, it protrudes through the sand of a desert devoid of life, just as this era is devoid of Bionicle. Yet still, glimmering with light from the sun, is that old mask, that mask which was the very first to be designed for this beautiful mythos. It is the Mask of Time, which so perfectly reflects the way it takes us back in time to the age of Bionicle. May Bionicle never sink below the sand. May we keep this beautiful legend alive forever.
