Meet Kevin Clague
Name: Kevin Clague (Username: kclague)
Age: 54 (as of 2012)
Location: Owatonna, MN USA
History with LDraw: Kevin started using LDraw in 1998 when the first Mindstorms Sets were introduced. He was contacted by a publisher that wanted to publish LEGO books. It was decided that LDraw, L3P and POV-Ray would be used to create the instructions. Kevin wrote a perl script to automate much of the image generation process. Later he converted this to a rudimentary C++ GUI program - today known as LPub (LDraw Publisher). He is currently working on version 4, a complete tool for laying out building instructions.
Kevin was a charter member of both the LDraw Standards Committee (LSC), and the LDraw Steering Committee (SteerCo). Kevin has co-authored four books on the topic of LEGO, three are building instructions books, and the fourth is the first book dedicated to the LDraw family of tools.
Related interests: Kevin's LEGO Dark age ended in 1998 when the LEGO Mindstorms set was first introduced. Kevin is a computer engineer and does both software and hardware at work. The programming for LPub is very different than the kind he does at work, so it is a nice change of pace.
Kevin is an avid fan of technic and robotics LEGO products. He specializes in making walking and crawling creatures, especially ones made out of pneumatics.
