I was recently hired as Creative Director and designer for an outdoor public art exhibit in Stamford, CT. I was tasked with creating the theme of the exhibit, designing the sculpts, the logo, branding, marketing materials and overseeing the project to ensure all of the design elements were cohesive. I created several different concepts and struck a chord with a Space Invasion theme inspired by 1950’s sci-fi. I also painted 2 of my own spaceships which were on display for 3 months, along with 39 other fantastic designs created by local artists. An auction will be held on Oct 2nd 2019 to own your very own 8’ tall spacecraft. (Batteries not included). See more art and info in my linkedin article - HERE
World cup time rolled around again and I started The Bogies Instagram page to add a little commentary as the competition unfolded. Here's a snapshot of some of the images I made. If you are interested in seeing more Bogies you can follow us @wearethebogies
Every year or so, Stamford Downtown host a public art contest - this years theme was 'Shapes' and my design was one of 39 chosen from 150 entries. It will be on display on the streets of Stamford over the summer before being auctioned off to the highest bidder in September.
As a freelancer, I'm used to working on multiple projects as they all pile in at the same time. However, this time I was trying to move house and take on this project on top of keeping my regular clients happy. As this is my 5th public art piece for Stamford, I knew how long it would take me to paint this design on a 4'sq cube so I printed the design on vinyl. Crisis averted, house moved, projects done. I never thought it was going to be possible to turn this around in 1 week.
As a creative I find that I often start something for fun and my brain inherently tries to turn it into a marketable idea. That's not always a bad thing - but I find it can slow down the creative process or stop it all together. I find It helps to be creative in ways that don't have anything to do with your job. Here's a little snow sculpture I made the other day. It's important to play!
No time for real costumes this year so had to do some last minute digital makeup!
Tried to get involved in Inktober this year but only managed a measly 6 doodles. Having a newborn and a busy work schedule doesn't allow for much spare time! Next year I'll see if I can get a little further!
I had fun doing another bit of street art for Stamford dowtown this year. It will be on display from June to August and then auctioned off at the end of the summer. If you happen to see it, take a photo with 'Pop' and tag #greenbombstudios To find the location of mine and all the other dinos click HERE
We shot some stop motion photography for our friends at JSK which can now be seen on their new website, designed by the talented Christian Carman. Click on the link below to see it in action..!
Just finished another fun project for Stamford Downtown. I painted 2 signal boxes in Latham Park with some fun colorful designs. You can see pictures of them if you click HERE
I'm looking forwward to my next 3D piece!
If you're in Stamford and have some time to kill, my bench is located right next to People' bank at 350 Bedford St, Stamford, CT 06902. It will be on display until August.

All I knew was that I wanted this design to Interact with the people walking by. I felt that I wanted to tell them to take a break and take a seat. Sometimes, it seems we're all too busy to take a second out to just sit on a bench and watch the world go by. I heard Ferris Bueller's voice in my head and knew I had to include his notorious quote...
'Life moves pretty fast, if you don't STOP and look around once in a while, you might just miss it'
I translated the quote literally as a blink into the future where space monkey's (obviously) have taken over Downtown Stamford and are now running the joint. It's going to happen before you know it, so you'd better enjoy the right now! Well, it's either that...or Zombies. I'll post the final version here when it's ready...
