The Making of ‘Patient. Proficient. Persistent-2’

0 - Published December 18, 2015 by in Art, Business, Development, Featured, Hard Work, Inspiration, Lacrosse, Old School

Last year we had a piece titled ‘Patient. Persistent. Proficient.’  It illustrated human hands stringing a head of a traditional wooden stick.  Stringing a stick is hard – very hard.  But what nobody knew was that the piece was part one, of a two part series.  Instead of the traditional graphite, pen & ink mediums used, I made […]

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 […]

“Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.” – General George S. Patton Let’s file this one under a “Flashback Friday”, just because.  I was recently asked in a client meeting what my toughest project ever given to me was, and I wondered if it was lacrosse-related, or non-lacrosse-related.  Well the answer […]

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)

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 […]
