Friday Food 4 Thought: Biz School/Grad School

0 - Published January 29, 2016 by in Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Inspiration, Lacrosse, Networking

See the recent Twitter exchange I had, yesterday, with one of my respected followers.  I’ll be honest, I think about this a lot.  But I’ve never pulled the trigger on Biz/Grad school.  Mainly, because: • Being in debt. • Not making $$. • Homework The last point homework is what I find bothersome.  It’s been 16 […]

Ha! You all remember that movie line? It’s funny, looking back, how a random and casual meet-up over hot wings led to a great list of project collaborations with Streaker Sports. But we’re not streaking, rather keeping our clothes on and adding some new ones to the list. Not too long ago we released a […]

(Writer’s Note: Let’s file this one under “what if?” In the crazy and adventurous world of entrepreneurship, there are a lot of “what ifs” involved. “What if” it does work?  “What if” it doesn’t? “What if” we don’t try?  The last kind of “what if” is the worst! In the summer of 2013 we had quite an […]

(Writer’s note: Let’s file this post under ‘PERSONAL’.  Did you know Thomas Edison was told by his teachers that he was too stupid to learn?  He invented almost 1,000 lightbulbs before he finally invented one that worked.   This post is not meant to be an attack.  It is meant to be a personal driver and confidence […]

The Making of ‘Sticks Up’.

“Adapt, or go the way of the dinosaurs.” Those were the exact words from one of my visiting professors in art school who was teaching a liberal arts class.  He required that students email him the homework paper assignments, rather than type, print and “hand” in class.  That was the mid-90’s, and not all students had […]

Growing The Game Beyond The Frame!

“Play is the highest form of research.” (Albert Einstein) The above quote by one of the smartest persons to have ever lived is one that I highly believe!  I tell people that some of my artistic ideas are spurred doing “non-artistic” activities and interests.  A few weekends ago, after a harsh Winter and a chilly […]

Friday Food 4 Thought: The Road Is Long (Pt. 2)

0 - Published May 1, 2015 by in Art, Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Hard Work, Inspiration, Old School

The first part of this series was written a while back. I got wait listed when I applied to the art school I eventually attended – The Pratt Institute.  Looking back, I couldn’t believe it because the 4 years there felt like “cake”.  And coming from a successful, 4 years at a highly rigorous experience spent in […]

Perfecting ‘The Perfect Progression’ Shirt

“Without struggle, there is no progress.” (Frederick Douglass) It’s called ‘The Perfect Progression’.  The drawing took about 2.5 years to execute.  It was worth it because it was an idea in my mind for years and one I haven’t seen done before since I founded the business.  But before the official launch to the public […]

“It is not only one person’s work, it’s really a partnership and collaboration during all these years.” – Christo (Artist) It’s funny how the most popular image in my portfolio, ‘Crank’ shares the same word in the company name that produced the product of the year for my business, as 2014 was coming to a close.  It’s […]
