…the FIRST DRAWING was done for The Art of Lax™.

It took longer than expected but the site was built.  Still, a constant work in progress, we are happy to introduce - The Art of Athletes™.

A look behind the development of doing a custom order for Duke Lacrosse stand-out and 2012 Tewaaraton Trophy finalist - CJ Costabile. 

Some of the original lacrosse art from my senior these back in art school—Pratt Institute/Brooklyn, NY (2000). 

These paintings were the charter group of what is now known as The Art of Lax.

The story behind the making & building of The Art of Lax.

Setting goals and taking risk are very common traits in sports… and more so often, in life.

All In!

Today at exactly 1pm EST, I turned in my 2-week notice at my job.  The Art of Lax™/The Art of Athletes™ ventures are fully backed! 

It’s time to go ALL IN!

Here’s to the next chapter in my career.  I hope that you all have enjoyed the ride, so far.
