Inktown Throwdown

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

In the grand scheme of things this is a day late, the blitzkrieg of blog press about this having come yesterday, but before I forget again here it is.

Super Art Fight is coming ’round to Baltimore’s Ottobar once again on Saturday, December 20th as ink gets applied to canvas in a battle of random themes where artists pull out all the stops to best each other in their application of them to the overall piece. Go on over to Superartfight.com to check out all of the relevant information.

Amu and I (Amu’s World represent!) will be there selling amigurumi Ninja and other critters, so stop on by if you are in the area and have the chance. If you pick up a Ninja be sure to check back around the beginning of the year for a special feature set to run on the site JUST FOR YOU!

Other comickers in attendance and participating will be Ghostfreehood (Dead of Summer and Art Fight Highschool), Michael Bracco (BIRTH and NOVO), Chris Impink (Fragile Gravity), Jamie Baldwin (Sudden Valley), Jami Noguchi (Erfworld and angryzenmaster.com), Garth Graham (Comedity), and for a special Co-Creator versus bout Ananth Panagariya and Yuko Ota (Johnny Wander). Also in attendance will be Onezumi, so WHO KNOWS what hijinks will ensue.

Come if you can, because you will not want to miss this. I mean, if it’s got White Rappers ™ in a tiff then it’s bound to be awesome!

Super Art Fight

In roughly an hour amubleu and I will be on our way to attend Super Art Fight at Baltimore’s Ottobar club. We’ll have a tiny space where you can find amu’s amigurumi merch and the FIRST EVER advertisement for Amu’s World. Check it out:

I get brainfarts all the time, but this one smelled of golden roses. I’m bringing the camera with me and will be taking photos, so check back within the next couple of days for a link to the ones I feel are decent. If you can’t make it out, definitely point your browsers to superartfight.com for videos and other media from tonight’s show.

Amu prepares her amigurumi stock for convention appearances in a rather assembly line process. Lots of parts are made, limb by limb, body by body, and assembled later. I stumbled upon a couple of Katamari Prince headcaps and decided Ninja could play pretend he’s the Ninja of all Cosmos.

OK, so it isn’t exactly working out for him. Let’s leave that rolling up new stars bit to the professionals.

Just a reminder that Otakon is next week. If you’re going, see us. If you’re in town early, do your best to make it out to Super Art Fight 4 at the Ottobar Thursday night before the con. It’s a really good time.

There’s Going To Be A Fight!

I have the good fortune to know some very cool, very productive people. They are hyper-creative folk who get a lot done, and have been not only part of the inspiration behind why I’m doing this comic in the first place, but contribute to helping me continue. Every once in a while they let me play Event Photographer for one of the most fun live events I’ve ever been to. This Saturday I’ll be taking photos of Super Art Fight 6!

If you’re in the Baltimore area this Saturday head on down to The Ottobar and see a live art battle, live music, and wild crowd. If you’ve never been, and have the time, you owe it to yourself to experience THIS MUCH AWESOME!
