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 overall.  

 

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™.
