I've forever loved lacrosse--as a player, a ball boy, a ref, a coach, and always, always a fan.  

the 70's, man

And lacrosse is constantly finding its way into my art. From fine art portraits, pop art, team art, to comic book stuff, I have drawn countless lacrosse players.

This Project:

For 101 Laxcots, I will illustrate original lacrosse playing mascots for 101 of the most well known, successful, influential or newsworthy lacrosse programs from any level of play: college, high school, club, pro, men's, women's.

Some Background:

The last couple years I have covered college lacrosse in-season through cartoons. The cartoons are editorial in nature, they comment on the games that just happened, they are dispersed quickly through social media and LaxAllStars.com so lacrosse fans can view them and discuss them when game results are still fresh.

You can Keep the Cartoons FREE by purchasing Laxcots stickers, prints, or even allowing me to illustrate your own original Laxcot.
