Tonight I shall be attending Super Art Fight at the Ottobar in Baltimore. What is Super Art Fight you may ask. Well let me tell you I say. It is an amazingly fun graphic art competition. A bunch of artists (mostly web comic artists I think), of whom my friend Bryan is one, have a drawing battle on a giant wall sized canvas all set to amusing commentary from your Super Art Fight hosts. The artists are given new topics to draw every few minutes with a spin of the wheel of death. They battle it out taking over each others drawings and turning them into something new. It’s kind of hard to explain, so have a look at this highlight video from one of the previous Super Art Fights to get a better idea of what I’m talking about.
It’s lots of nerdy, awesome fun which is the best kind in my opinion. There are usually 4 bouts during each Super Art Fight with bands playing between the various bouts. There are two bands tonight, one of which is Paul and Storm. I’m not familiar with the music in that I’ve never heard any of it. However, they are frequently mentioned by nerdy celebrity types that I much enjoy like Wil Wheaton and Christ Hardwick, so I’m kind of looking forward to seeing what they have to offer.
If you’re in Baltimore and not doing anything tonight, I highly suggest getting yourself over to the Ottobar for a great night of fun. I believe there are tickets still available. You won’t be disappointed I promise. If you can’t make it tonight, keep an eye out for future Super Art Fight events.
