The Making of the “Brain Bucket”

0 - Published December 5, 2014 by in Art, Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Hard Work, Inspiration, Lacrosse, Old School

This new piece is a throwback for us “old-schoolers”.  Looking back, I can’t believe I endured wearing such a heavy piece of equipment on my head.  But its was the standard back then, and so common – the norm!  Mine, like 99.7% of lacrosse players back then, was the LHN 33 by the now nonexistent, Bacharach […]

The Making of “Made in NYC”.

“We’re from New York City.” That was the direct response from both my friend and myself, when asked where we were from while backpacking around Europe, summer of 2000.  Not “America”, or the “U.S.”, but “New York City”.  I told my friend to carefully observe their faces when we said that, because it was like a surprise to […]

Flashback Friday & Friday Food 4 Thought: Being Serious

0 - Published September 19, 2014 by in Art, Business, Childhood, Development, Entrepreneurship, Hard Work, Inspiration, Networking, Old School

“If you take it seriously, they will take you seriously.”  -Tom LaPadula  In grade school, I made sure requirements were met on time.  But that didn’t mean I enjoyed every subject I had.  I was a doodler in class.  Occasionally, or A LOT of times, I would discreetly draw in my notebooks when a class […]

The Making of “Patient. Persistent. Proficient.”

0 - Published August 22, 2014 by in Art, Business, Development, Hard Work, Inspiration, Lacrosse, Old School

“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 […]

0 - Published August 8, 2014 by in Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Hard Work, Inspiration, Lacrosse, Leadership, Networking

My recent post on Wed. included this pic (above) of me playing in goal, along with the two other people who I co-founded the Brooklyn Men’s Lacrosse Club back in 2005.  Dan Mirsky (#7), Dan Sheff (#8) and myself, Vinnie Ricasio, (#1).  We started the team because NYC needed another post-collegiate lacrosse team and most of […]

“Full-Tilt” before “Crank”

0 - Published August 7, 2014 by in Art, Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Hard Work, Inspiration, Lacrosse

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 […]

“Crank” OWNER–Chris Feehely

(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 […]

#StudioJam

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 […]

Friday Food 4 Thought: Obsession

0 - Published July 11, 2014 by in Art, Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Hard Work, Inspiration, Lacrosse

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, […]

Friday Food 4 Thought: Mike Richter

0 - Published May 23, 2014 by in Art, Development, Hard Work, Inspiration

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 […]
