Some puppets Imagined Creations created. I painted the preachers’ stoles and the Leprechaun’s face.

Nutcrackers built by Imagined Creations, painted by myself, for for Ken Jones at the Art Department, the one with the funny pants is only a stand in ;).

These butterfly wings were part of an entire play of bugs costumed as life sized puppets by Imagined Creations. Still waiting for pictures of the bug eyed helmets.

Finally, Imagined Creations has two sets of Audrey puppets, the largest pictured below is the size of an old VW beetle.

Another great job for Melissa Friday at Xan Creative.   I am ecstatic to have been able to create a pin up girl for the new location of Atomic Cowboy, as well as an old cowboy mural for the neon cowboy loitering on the wall with the patrons.  But the most challenging aspect of this job was the cold rolled steel which I faux finished with the help of some intense invisible primers.

After the closing of Pasquini’s Cherry Creek  I felt like some of my favorite work was lost forever, but the upholsterer Stephen Volz of DuD’s had created the most beautiful set of booths, his opus being a half moon button tufted red vinyl dining extravaganza. When he asked me to create something catchy for the exterior of his new location on Holly and Colfax, of course I referenced this booth. Along with other swatches of fabric we all love.

The interior paint job at Tony P’s Cherry Creek was my personal favorite, as I had free reign over the palette and techniques. Of course I had to match the floor, booths and tables. Sadly, this location is no more.

Follow the link to see what Creative Leader Cory Gilstrap of Imagined Creations helped put together with a crew of interns from all over the Nation. I am pleased to have been called in to paint the rock, angry fungus and speared pickle.

Recently opened Ace, by master of design Melissa Friday of Xan Creative is located at 501 East 17th.  It is being called Steuben’s sassy sister, and melds Asian cuisine with Ping Pong in a nearly 95% recycled atmosphere.  I’ve included pictures of the paint treatments I was trusted with.
