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 […]

I believe that in order for something to sell, it has to be seen -  pure and simple.  But what I DO NOT know is what the eyes of the viewers are thinking.  So when the Executive Director from The Tewaaraton Foundation approached me at the U.S. Lacrosse Foundation back in January, I wasn’t fully prepared.

…As the lacrosse “war stories” came rolling on, he told me to wait and he ran down into his basement. Upon his return, he held in his hand a dyed STX Turbo lacrosse stick, with the town Pelham dyed on the lip, strung in a mesh “Ulman” pocket and fixed on a white, aluminum shaft.

In mid-March, I made a new piece called “The Perfect Form” which had a similar look as my bestseller “Crank”.  The image displayed is of a modern-day player, with a right-handed shot, arms away and level to the eyes.  The actual purpose behind it was to make “The Perfect Form” better than “Crank”.  As much […]

“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 […]

Recently, I’ve been doing a bunch of offensive players for the portfolio that I decided to commit at least two pieces for the defensive-mind players in us.  I’ve been mostly, if not mainly, a defensive player in my lacrosse experience.  My parents made me play goal because they thought that, back in 4th grade, it […]

My pride and joy of The Art of Lax™ is looking back at the painting titled “The Creators”, which was the FIRST piece of lacrosse art that I did during my senior thesis in art school.  That piece launched it all.  While my thesis was to display a historical account of lacrosse, it was only […]

Whenever I get a chance to visit my parent’s in Manhattan, I usually like to search for things from my childhood and/or past that they kept.  On a recent stop over for dinner, I searched for my Bacharach lacrosse helmet a.k.a. “the brain bucket” that I used in boarding school (1992-1996).  I knew they still […]
