The Black Cat was hyped and excited all night long as Super Art Fight returned to Washington DC for another unforgettable night of artistic action!

All eyes were on the stage – and at one point, one particular Wheel of Death topic (more on that shortly) – as five artists entered an Art Fight unlike any other, the treacherous GOLDEN GAUNTLET.

RESULTS

Two started. Four bouts were held. But only one could win.

BOUT 1: General Stormsketch defeated Baron Von Sexyful

The night started with a surprise upset, as 2017’s “Super Rookie” GENERAL STORMSKETCH shocked the crowd in the nation’s capital, defeating fan-favorite BARON VON SEXYFUL.

BOUT 2: General Stormsketch defeated Wisteria

The winning ways continued for GENERAL STORMSKETCH, as he took on and defeated one-half of GODS AND MONSTERS, the always cheerful WISTERIA in an intense bout. During this match the Wheel of Death topic “Just a Lot of Ducks” appeared, and the DC crowd seemed to vibe on it - as this started a trend of Duck chants and Quacks which lasted the rest of the evening!

BOUT 3: General Stormsketch defeated Killer Colleen

The stress of continuing on started to take a tole on GENERAL STORMSKETCH here as he just barely scooted by his rival KILLER COLLEEN of the Bra’lers, who had previously defeated him for the Super Art Fight Championship.

GAUNTLET FINAL: General Stormsketch defeated Two Drink Alex

As the final bout was selected, TWO DRINK ALEX came in as a house of fire, with the DC crowd behind him, but those drinks seemed to get the better of him, as the unthinkable became real, and the Dictator from the Principality of Cardstock had his hand raised for the fourth time of the night, becoming the new owner of the GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY MARKER.

Now, all eyes are on GENERAL STORMSKETCH. Will he decide to take his SAF Championship opportunity live at the Ottobar, as a part of THIS TIME IT’S PERSONAL? Or will he wait for a moment to strike when SHOUJO A GO-GO is at her weakest? Stay tuned, SAF ARMY!

Additional Notes

  • Thank you again to all who came out to the Black Cat on Friday night! Even with the crummy weather, this was one of our best showings in DC, and we cannot thank you enough for the awesome presale numbers and coming out in force, and staying hyped all night long.

  • Speaking of HYPE - given how much love was thrown to Ducks all evening long, and our new relationship with Printful, we’re proud to have a very limited-run “DUCKS!” t-shirt available on our Etsy shop! You asked for it, repeatedly, and you’ve got it. Get it while it’s still available!

Your roster of artists appearing tonight is General Stormsketch, Two Drink Alex, Wisteria, Killer Colleen, and Baron Von Sexyful. Anything can – and will – happen!

Super Art Fight RETURNS to the Ottobar MAY 17th - And THIS TIME, IT'S PERSONAL

ottobar.jpg

Baltimore, Maryland - the Greatest Live Art Competition in the Known Universe is back at it again, as we’re in our home base, the legendary Ottobar on Friday, May 17th, and This Time, It’s Personal.

That’s right, Super Art Fight: This Time It’s Personal will wreck Charm City this May, and we want you to join us live and in person!

There’s no venue we go bigger, no venue where the bouts are crazier, no venue where the stakes are higher, than the Ottobar, and we’re going to deliver as always in front of one of our favorite crowds.

Want to see it live? Great news! Tickets are on sale…NOW. Surprise! Go get ‘em!

Stay tuned here for more details and bout announcements as the show gets closer.

A GODDESS Makes Five: WISTERIA Joins the Golden Gauntlet

190308-social-post-06.jpg

We’ve got fan favorites, former Super Art Fight Champions, and elite talent signed up for the Golden Gauntlet.

Now we need something special. To wrap up the group of five, we need someone who showed that they can actually take it to the limit and win a gauntlet.

Who better than one-half of the #1 contender of the Super Art Fight tag team titles, Gods & Monsters, and co-winner of the first-ever MAGFest Tag Team Gauntlet, our resident nature goddess Wisteria?!

That’s right - we’ve got punk rockers, male models, party animals, dictators and goddess in this once-in-a-lifetime throwdown.

What other show gives you such value? Grab those tickets today, Washington DC! And we’ll see you at the Black Cat on March 8th.

I Predict A Riot: KILLER COLLEEN Jumps Into the GOLDEN GAUNTLET Fray

Let’s be honest folks: it’s 2019, did you think that the Golden Gauntlet was going to be just a bunch of dudes?

Of course not. Because if it were - the Bra’lers would kick our ass.

And there’s no Bra’ler who has kicked more ass over the past year than Killer Colleen.

She’s racked up key wins - including a Super Art Fight Title Reign - so she was a perfect addition to the battle on March 8th at Washington DC’s legendary Black Cat.

Will she be the one to snatch the Golden Opportunity, and reclaim her throne atop Super Art Fight?

FIND OUT LIVE!

Now It's A Party: 2 DRINK ALEX Joins the GOLDEN GAUNTLET

190308-social-post-04.jpg

The Golden Gauntlet throwdown heading to Washington DC’s Black Cat on March 8th just keeps getting more and more star-studded.

The latest entry? Artist participant #3 - the life of the party himself, 2 Drink Alex!

2 Drink Alex kicked off 2018 with a Super Art Fight Title win in DC, and he’d like for lightning to strike twice.

Can he take out his former tag partner in Baron Von Sexyful? Can he stop the momentum of General Stormsketch? Who else is in this crazy match? Stay tuned and find out.

In the meantime - lock in your attendance now…grab your tickets TODAY!

GENERAL STORMSKETCH Joins The GOLDEN GAUNTLET

190308-social-post-03.jpg

Welcome artist #2 to the mix of 5, as the 2017 SAF Idol Finalist, the “Super Rookie” General Stormsketch joins the battle at the Black Cat on March 8th!

General Stormsketch shocked the world by capturing both the SAF Championship and SAF Tag Titles within his rookie year, and as he embarks into his second year, he hopes to continue his winning ways in Washington DC and snag the Golden Opportunity marker from his four other opponents!

Can General Stormsketch run the gauntlet? Only one way to find out - and that’s LIVE and IN-PERSON!

BARON VON SEXYFUL Joins The GOLDEN GAUNTLET

190308-social-post-02.jpg

On Friday Night, March 8th, when Super Art Fight returns to Washington DC’s infamous Black Cat, the first-ever Golden Gauntlet will be thrown down, with the winner earning the Super Art Fight Golden Opportunity Marker, providing them a Championship Opportunity – any time, any where.

The first of the five participants - a true SAF legend.

Three time SAF champion. Two time SAF tag champion. An absolutely undeniable force. Incredibly tight pants…IT’S BARON VON SEXYFUL!

Can he topple four other artistic titans? Find out live at the Black Cat!

The GOLDEN GAUNTLET Comes to the Black Cat, March 8th!

golden-gauntlet-teaser.jpeg

At the beginning of 2019, the SAF Army was privy to an amazing experiment - the first-ever Tag Team Gauntlet, live at MAGFest.

It was an amazing evening, filled with insane drama, the birth of new tag teams, and a new pair of #1 Contender’s for the Super Art Fight Tag Titles crowned in the end, in Gods & Monsters (Wisteria and Stompadon). It was a Super Art Fight event unlike any other…and it birthed a new match type that we’d have to see again.

On Friday Night, March 8th, we’re making our grand return to Washington DC’s Black Cat, and we knew we needed to make a splash.

And we also knew that, after being successfully cashed in at the 37th Annual Holiday Hootenanny, the Super Art Fight Golden Opportunity Marker – allowing the artist who holds it to challenge for any SAF title, anytime, anywhere – needed to find a new owner.

In turn, we will bring to the Black Cat, the FIRST-EVER GOLDEN GAUNTLET.

Five artists. Four matches. One amazing opportunity.

Stay tuned to SuperArtFight.com and our social media as we announce ALL FIVE ARTISTS on the road to the Black Cat on March 8th.

reveal-hz.jpg

Just before the holiday, if you took a look at our social media, you may’ve noticed some things changed with our icons.

That’s right, just in time for our, uh, eleventh year of Super Art Fight action, we’ve decided to upgrade our logo!

This is just phase one of a cool new visual approach to what we do here at the Greatest Live Art Competition in the Known Universe - one you may’ve noticed for our promotion of our Holiday Hootenanny show, or our forthcoming MAGFest events.

More will be coming throughout 2019, but you’ll be seeing this sweet new logo and visual style on all SAF content moving forward.

New Year. New Us. Let’s do this, SAF ARMY!

OTTOBAR: The Strangest Bout Ever Caps Off Our Baltimore Card!

181215-bunny-stompadon-v2_preview.jpeg

So far, we’ve announced three bouts for our Ottobar return, December 15th in Baltimore, Maryland.

We’ve got title defenses. We’ve got grudge matches. We’ve got artists old and young.

But what would be that one thing to put it all over the top?

Well, on one side, we need an adorably cuddly Kaiju.

On the other side…uh. Well. It’s something unique. Someone from a place not quite here. Someone who only limited audiences have seen, and experienced.

Get ready to get strange during our 37th Annual Holiday Hootenanny, as it will be…

STOMPADON vs. BUNNY

OTTOBAR: Tag Team Title Mayhem Marks Bout #3!

181215-olds-storm-v3_preview.jpeg

Since becoming the Super Art Fight tag team champions at the beginning of 2018, the duo of the Angry Zen Master and General Stormsketch, known collectively as Team Stormmaster have been incredibly dominant, destroying all competitors in their path.

So dominant, in fact, that the SAF Championship committee has decided to put together a tag team title match to teach that duo some respect.

In turn, their opponents are a duo filled with years of wisdom. A duo who have lived their lives. A duo who eats dinner at 4:30 in the afternoon and will be up well past their bedtime to be a part of the show.

One is grumpy.

One is very lost.

Together, they both own Jitterbugs and want to add some tag team gold to their golden years.

On Saturday, December 15th at the Ottobar in Baltimore, MD at our 37th Annual Holiday Hootenanny, it will be…

SUPER ART FIGHT TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH

TEAM STORMMMASTER (Champions) vs. OLD MAN PRINDIVILLE & OLIVIA OBLIVIA
