Found this short video from our Katsucon show this year (thanks to BlackjackViolin who uploaded it). I loved that show, and this also lets me see something I don’t normally see. What it’s like to WATCH a Super Art Fight. I’m always so busy on stage, I don’t get to be amongst the crowd and see it from their perspective. I love finding videos and responses that give an insight into what that’s like. Here’s the link if the vid isn’t working.
"EMMITSBURG — Artists did not pull any punches Saturday during the Super Art Fight at Mount St. Mary’s University.
It was all friendly competition, where the pen — bold marker, to be precise — was mightier than the sword. In several 20-minute bouts, two artists at a time went pen-to-pen on a giant piece of paper. They improvised, doodling, sketching and adding onto doodles based on random subjects provided by Ross Nover, the Super Art Fight master of ceremonies, and Darren J. Gendron, booking agent.
By the end of the night, the Super Art Fight team suffered defeat against the university team, The Really Loud Onomatopoeias. Nover cheerfully chalked it up to home-field advantage."
