“If you can’t draw hands and feet at this stage, you’re basically F_cked!”   Those were exactly the first words from my professor who taught ‘New Directions in Illustration’ class the first day of the spring semester, of my junior year at The Pratt Institute in 1999.  I had my fair share of sport coaches who threw F-bombs […]

Yesterday’s post made me think a lot on the classic, “Crank” piece, above.  It is the most identifiable piece in my business and portfolio, and one I don’t think I will ever top (at least for now).  But thinking back, there was actually a big seller before “Crank” and that piece is called “Full-Tilt”. This had […]

(Writer’s note: 5 years ago this week “Crank” was created.  This article is about 2.5 years overdue – that’s right!  I’ve been meaning to do this for such a long time.  This article is for Chris’ mother who recently passed away.  As a business owner, you just want everything to go right, that’s why you […]

So we’re beginning to post our Studio Jam’s with a little write-up behind each vid.  Back in art school, I always had the radio on/CD playing… whatever – there was always music being played.  I still do it and thus have spurred my ideas behind my “Studio Jam” vid posts.  A quick work in progress, accompanied […]

You see that “work in progress” or “studio pic” in the featured image, above (and below)?  Yeah, that’s me doing work while on a family vacation that had me “away the business” for almost 2-weeks.  While doing this, I constantly thought to myself that this is obsessive – work while on vacation.  But as a business owner, […]

20 years ago, I got inspired and decided to model my lacrosse goaltending-form after witnessing “The SAVE” by former NY Rangers great, Mike Richter. It was 1994 and the NY Rangers were competing for their first Stanley Cup in 54 years!  NYC was also getting its act cleaned up – it was  very exciting time […]

Some call it a “reunion”.  Some think of it as the “un-official start” of lacrosse season.  Manifestly, it’s a Convention.  (Btw, yes, that image used, above, is something new coming soon!  One of the many exciting things for 2014)Unfortunately, The Art of Lax™ will NOT be attending the 2014 U.S. Lacrosse Convention. 2013 finished very strong with the new […]
