Friday Food 4 Thought: Plant This!

0 - Published April 24, 2015 by in , , ,

Every so often I go back to my parent’s apartment in Manhattan with my kids and spend a leisure time catching up.  Most of the time, as they take advantage with their grandchildren, I usually go and try to find my old lacrosse equipment being hidden somewhere.  I’m in awe when I find such old things not […]

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 […]

The Making of the “Brain Bucket”

“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 […]

#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 […]

“Forget the refs… it’s jungle rules out there!” -Ron Wolfley (former NFL player) Lawrence Taylor. Tie Domi. Paul O’Neill. Xavier McDaniels (and pretty much most of the New York Knicks in the early-90’s). Every team has its version of an “enforcer” somewhere in the line-up.  I believe in displaying sportsmanship during competition.  I also believe […]
