Over the course of the last four years, Stogiebird, the brainchild of Sam Leccia, has been delivering exclusive collections of cigars to the delight of enthusiasts. This year, in a captivating partnership with Padilla Cigar Company, they have unveiled their Halloween collection, and it’s nothing short of spectacular. Themed as “Circus Freak,” this collection introduces a remarkable twist that sets it apart from its predecessors.

What makes it truly exceptional is that the artwork gracing the cigar bands has been crafted through the power of artificial intelligence (AI). The AI-generated bands represent a distinctive work of art for each cigar within the Circus Freak line-up. This intriguing cast of characters includes the Ringmaster, 2-headed Woman, Fortune Teller, Tattooed Lady, Sword Swallower, Wolfgirl, Snake Charmer, and Strong Girl. These designs carry a unique charm, with a hint of eccentricity, and are a testament to the boundless creative possibilities AI can offer.

Sam Leccia, the visionary behind this endeavour, shared his perspective, stating, “While I knew what I wanted, getting 8 new designs created would have been costly, so I started looking into AI and was really quite surprised with the results. These AI designs have their flaws; eyes, fingers, and even cigars still just come out a bit strange, but I just went with it. It opened up a whole new path for creativity for me.” His innovative approach to design is a testament to the evolving landscape of the cigar industry, embracing technology as a catalyst for creativity.

The Stogiebird Halloween Cigar Selections can be savoured exclusively through Stogie Bird’s subscription service, adding a touch of intrigue and artistry to this year’s Halloween celebrations. It’s a testament to the dynamic and ever-evolving world of cigars, where tradition meets innovation to create captivating experiences for aficionados. In a previous life, Leccia was the face of Studio Tobac’s Cain and Nub lines and he owned Leccia Tobacco, a boutique cigar brand.
