Number One as a visual reflection on this reality

Image Commentary

When he was quite young, my son, Casey liked to dress up in my hockey equipment – even though he was unable to play hockey because of a heart condition. This simple act of Casey’s reminded me of the importance that role models have on each of us as we travel along the road of life. I created Number One as a visual reflection on this reality.

The image of the young boy dressed in oversized hockey gear, looking up at his hero, reminds us of the influence that role models have on our children as they move through childhood toward maturity. As the young boy looks up at the poster, his toys seem to look up at him reminding us that each of us is capable of acting as a role model.
