Last Saturday I had to chance to take part in my first ever art battle. The competition, called The Battle Of Art & Sol, was held in downtown Saginaw and featured 12 other awesome artists all competing for the prize of $500. Thanks to my friend Jared, who ran the event, I was able to do it digitally. That also meant hauling a big ass flat screen to the outside and praying my computer didn't break down on me.
I mean, it did (Thanks Apple). A lot. But I managed.
Unfortunately not enough to get the top prize but congrats to Becca Brown for winning the first prize and Jose Garcia for winning People's Choice. Will I do another art battle? Maybe. If I do I think I'd might want to try painting, or the Dave Chow method of using the power of the Sharpie on a canvas. But overall it was a great experience and I'm glad I had a chance to be a part of it.
