SAF IDOL 2017: Meet The Elite 8, And Ticketing Details!

On Saturday, February 25, 2017, Super Art Fight is proud to present the FIFTH-EVER Super Art Fight IDOL tournament!

February 25th will be home to the quarterfinals and semifinals of the tournament, where the last two artists will move on to our March 18th Better Than The Last Time event in Baltimore, Maryland.

We’re incredibly excited for this show, and in anticipation of it, we wanted to officially announce the list of participants, and how you can catch the action live.

How To Attend

To attend Super Art Fight IDOL 2017, email us at superartfight at gmail dot com, with the subject line of “SAF IDOL 2017”. Reservations to attend are a first-come, first-serve basis, and we will email you confirming your attendance.

If you cannot join us live and in person, do not worry, as we will be streaming the event live online, with more details to follow as it gets closer.

We are incredibly excited (and delighted) to welcome a new class of artists to Super Art Fight. Who will be the next Red Erin, the next Two-Drink Alex, the next Baron Von Sexyful? Join us on February 25th to find out!

Get Ready To PLUNGE with Super Art Fight THIS JANUARY!

Since starting Super Art Fight in 2008, we’ve had the honor and pleasure of working with a number of great charities.

We’ve raised funds for Make-A-Wish and the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, we’ve donated toys to Toys For Tots, and we annually donate our artwork to auctions for Child’s Play and Relay For Life.

There’s one charitable event we’ve always considered being a part of, but we’ve struggled to be able to schedule. But in 2017, we’re going to do it…and we’re going to feel VERY cold.

Super Art Fight is entering into the 2017 Polar Bear Plunge.

That’s right, on Saturday, January 28th, a team of Super Art Fight roster members will be plunging themselves into the Chesapeake Bay to help raise funds for Special Olympics Maryland – and you can help us!

How can I help?

Well, you can visit our team page right now and donate immediately, either to our team, or to the individual teammates within by clicking Donate Now. We’re aiming for a goal of $1000, and you can track the status of that goal via the widget below.

Click Here to Donate

That said, if you’re crazy enough, you can also click the Join Team page, and join us in taking a brisk dip into the Chesapeake on January 28th. We’ll be a part of the 1pm plunge, so come out and join us, support us, or cheer us on!

Donations can be received through January 26th, 2017, so donate early and donate often, it’s for a hell of a cause!

For The Holidays, Want To Give The WHEEL OF DEATH Some Topics?


Last minute WHEEL OF DEATH suggestions, anyone?

With our THIRD-ANNUAL Non-Denominational Holiday Spectacular coming in just 8 days to the Black Cat in Washington, DC, we wanted to get into the giving part of the season and allow you, our loyal fans to add some SUPPLEMENTARY WHEEL OF DEATH TOPICS.

Yes, although we just asked for some in the Fall, we wanted to ask you, the SAF Army for some extra special bonus topics to wrap up the 2016 Season.

How can you contribute to our favorite topic generator? EASY! Just reply in the comments – yes, we’re telling you to READ the comments for once! – and let us know what topics you want to see on the Wheel of Death.

The topics will be analyzed and sorted, with some edited for clarity and simplicity, but YOUR topics could make it into future SAF bouts!

PROTIP: Shorter topics work better! While “Godzilla Rollerskating While Eating A Banana Split” sounds fun, it’s very creatively limiting for our artists – both you and they know what you’ll see. But with a topic like “Fish Tank”, you could get the standard interpretation, or something crazier like a goldfish heading into war!

Keep filing these comments up, you have until Wednesday afternoon, December 7, 2016.

Since 2008, Super Art Fight has been presenting some of the most exciting action on any stage, anywhere.

We’ve been home to some of the finest artists, with the most ridiculous personas, battling it out for supremacy and to one day obtain Super Art Fight gold. We’ve captivated audiences all across the United States, and earlier this year, officially became international, with our first Canadian show.

On a semi-annual basis, we open the doors for a select group of artists to compete for a full-time Super Art Fight roster slot, in an event we call Super Art Fight IDOL.

Some of the artists who have made their way through this process have been:
– 2-Time Super Art Fight Champion Red Erin
– El Russo Rojo
– Princess of Darkness
– Multi-time SAF Tag Champion Charm City Shinobi

And now, we are opening the door to you.


Starting today, you can email to apply to be a future member of the Super Art Fight roster.

What do we want from you?

To apply for the 2017 edition of SAF Idol, email with the following information

  • Name
  • Age
  • Location
  • Email
  • Website
  • SAF Persona Name

Please include with this email at least three (3) pieces of artwork, and also a description and/or sketch of your intended Super Art Fight character.

BONUS: Send us a YouTube link to a video of yourself as your Super Art Fight Persona, telling us why YOU should join the SAF Locker Room!

When do you need to send this by?

Applications for SUPER ART FIGHT IDOL 2017 close on January 11, 2017.

What happens next?

We at Super Art Fight will whittle down the applications to a group of 8 artists, who will collide in a single-elmination tournament, judged by your SAF roster peers, to be held in February 2017 at Canvas/Co in Washington, DC.

This event will be streamed live online as it occurs, and this year, we have a twist…

The finals for Super Art Fight IDOL 2017 will be contested LIVE at the Ottobar in Baltimore, Maryland during our Spring 2017 event, with the LIVE AUDIENCE choosing the victor!

If you can make it at the Ottobar, you can make it anywhere, and now is your opportunity to rise above the rest.

In Summary

  • SAF IDOL 2017 applications are open now!
  • Applications close on January 11, 2017.
  • Eight artists will be chosen as finalists, for a live event in February 2017.

DC Holiday Spectacular: SAF Title On The Line!


As a special Turkey Day wrap up to our announcements for the December 9th THIRD ANNUAL NON-DENOMINATIONAL HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR, emanating live from Washington DC’s Black Cat, it is our honor and pleasure to announce our MAIN EVENT of the evening, a collision for the Super Art Fight Championship Title!

While we’ve seen her through many guises over her 8 year Super Art Fight career, there are few who exude everything that it takes to make an Art Fighter than Jamie Baldwin. A two-time former Super Art Fight champion, she seems to have regained her killer instinct as a member of The Bra’lers, the girl gang taking SAF by storm.

It’s this killer instinct that made the King of Brush Style raise up and take notice. And much as he challenged the Charm City Shinobi to step up and try to take the title from him, he now wants a fellow Day One veteran to try to rise up and become champion.

Will the Judge rise to the occasion? Or will the Angry Zen Master continue his record setting 3rd title reign? Find out live with us on December 9th, as it will be…



Only one way to see the action, in what will be an art fight masterclass – grab your tickets and see us live on December 9th!
