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 know that saying? “Offense sells tickets, but defense wins games!” Well, we have included 4 new defensive pieces to the portfolio. Mainly for those who “throw the lumber around” with a 6 ft pole : LSM, Close-D, etc., etc. Check them out, below, and make your purchase, here. Protect and defend… happy hunting! LIKE […]
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, […]
Back in my days, there weren’t any Fo-Go’s (Face-Off/Get-Off) types. It was real man-style. If you faced off, you stayed on to play offense and/or defense… and transition. In 2002, the only handful of lacrosse players I knew in NYC, which was about 8 or so people, got drift of a pick up lacrosse game […]
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!
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.
“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.” – Bruce Lee […]
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 […]
“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), […]
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.
