Tatami “Crazy” gi design competition

This is slightly off topic from the majority of my blog but I’ve been training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu now since about 2000 and in one of the few crossover moments between my interest in martial arts, and my interest in illustration I have been shortlisted for the Tatami Fightwear “Crazy” gi design competition. If I get the most “likes” for my design then my gi will be custom made for me for free!

If you feel like doing me a favour, please go here and “like” my design!

I made an attempt today at combining my hand drawn illustration with the collage work I’ve been experimenting with, I’m quite happy with how it’s come out. Click for a bigger version!

I’ve been trying a few new things the last few days, i’ve posted them on my tumblr account but I think a post on here is in order. All using creative commons images from flickr, mainly from “The Commons” (collections of images from institutions like the Smithsonian).
