I remember in 2009, just launching The Art of Lax™ – asking so many people for advice. I asked my parents, my girlfriend (now wife), my bosses and friends in different professions. Each had their own piece(s) of advice to share. But the BEST advice was given to me right after I got my high-school […]
This year, we’ve been on the roll with smartphone & tablet accessories. It’s been one of the most popular and successful products we’ve put the lacrosse art on! It’s a digital world we live in and these days people are literally connected to the world with their fingertips. So why not keep the momentum going? […]
A little product-sneak into one of our newest Business-to-Business partnerships for 2014! Designed in Paris. Made in Italy. Official launch coming this week with full product description, but you can get it here if you can’t wait!
Early is on time. On time is late. I just got off a business call with a prospective business-partner that went very well. The call was scheduled for 2pm EST, with me calling in. At 1:57pm EST, I started dialing. At around 2:45pm EST, let’s just say that the “green light” was made. But more […]
It was 1989. There were only tokens, no MetroCards. Brooklyn wasn’t a “brand”. The Yankees were not known as winners. The Bronx still had a 212 area-code and buying a cup of coffee could get you a fat lip, instead of free Wi-Fi.
Take a look at this pic, above. It happened in 1992. Princeton just won the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship. In this picture you will find three (3) very high-profile names in lacrosse. All captured in one moment. Those figures are (from left to right): Scott Bacigalupo (goalie). One of my lacrosse idols growing up. He’s […]
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 […]
The past few months have been packed with custom orders. Below, are a list of vids of a few pieces that went out to my customers. I’m always jamming the music in the studio. Try not to laugh too much at my variety of music… :o) @TheArtofLax Like on Facebook #ForArtForLax
“There is no better high than discovery.” - E.O. Wilson One year ago, this week, was one of those “A-ha” moments in the biz. I was searching for a “creative boost”. It was Election Day and I was riding the NYC subway system on the way to cast my vote for President. The train was relatively […]
“If you’re going to be thinking anything, you might as well think BIG.” –Donald Trump During our second year in business, returning customers would inquire for posters, or life-sized images, of the sports art for their walls. Some retailers and vendors made attempts, but we knew there were better, and […]
“A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves as something to aim at.” – Bruce Lee When 2013 started, we knew that a new website was to be a major goal right away. But goals, manifestly plans, do change and a lot of unexpected things came up that halted and took […]
One of my most highlighted projects during the summer was started by a simple “tweet” followed by an email, last year. The customer, who hailed from the United Kingdom, informed me of his upcoming wedding and a thought for a wedding present. The format was to look down the aisle, as if you (the viewer), […]
One of my favorite pieces I did over the summer was for a client pertaining to a new and upcoming, goalie development coaching business, based in Long Island. As a goalie myself, this was “second-nature” for me and I already had the image in mind when the client (a goalie, himself) was envisioning the details […]
I know I’m going to get flak for this, but he (Dan) knew it was coming, as per his request for a write-up. This is for you, Dan Willson! In 2011, I got the amazing opportunity to play lacrosse in Thailand with a select group from Lax All Stars. I remember it clearly – getting […]
There are a few weeks of summer left before it’s back to school. During my “school-days”, my summer was mostly spent working (for pocket money) and reading books (mandatory summer reading for school). Fast-forward to present day, it’s still the same routine, but in a different kind of way. As the summer was rapidly going […]
There are a lot of times where I get inquiries from groups and companies to help art direct their brand identity. So when a start-up camp located in the Tri-State area got a hold of me to commence a piece for them, it was based on one of the most difficult shots to read as […]
Recently, I finished a custom order for an upcoming graduation present. As with most projects that I execute, I documented the process of development. Below, are the series of pics that were taken: Final piece. 18×24 inches. Acrylic on canvas. Interested in a custom order? Click, here.
Yes, that’s right! We’re clearing them out because we won’t be stocking them anymore – just our retailers! Get them, here. Like on Facebook. @TheArtofLax
I believe that in order for something to sell, it has to be seen - pure and simple. But what I DO NOT know is what the eyes of the viewers are thinking. So when the Executive Director from The Tewaaraton Foundation approached me at the U.S. Lacrosse Foundation back in January, I wasn’t fully prepared. […]
I’m always on the hunt to develop new things for the biz! My mind is always churning and cranking. Speaking of Crank-ing… I was thinking of an accessory item and I wanted to make something besides print and/or apparel. Ever since moving to the suburbs back in September of 2012, I constantly see bumper stickers […]
