I used to work for a creative advertising executive. An intimidator, he told me that he “rarely hired people from art schools because they are likely to be one-dimensional.”
I later found out that he attended the same art school I had. I also found out that he was an exceptional high school baseball player, and missed an invitation
to try out for an MLB team.
In the fall of 2008, I began the quest to fulfill some personal and unfinished business, and started The Art of Lax™.
Almost 3 years later, the decision to produce lacrosse-themed art and design, was probably one of the BEST moves for my artistic and professional development
However, since lacrosse has been considered a hybrid of popular sports such as: football, soccer, basketball and ice hockey, the requests from customers, clients and business partners
to do “other sports” came pouring in. As much as I wanted to focus ONLY on my favorite sport of lacrosse, the implication of doing so would be, as my former boss stated best - one-dimensional.
Each season brings their respective sports. Therefore, I intend to grow with the seasons. I welcome you to The Art of Athletes™.
