New Shirts

  We finally have a new design in the shop! A pizza lovin’ dinosaur who loves fighting as much as we do. We’ve got a white tee, a black tee, and a nice warm crewneck sweatshirt for cold. And from now until Friday 12/19/2014 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time, we’re offering 20% with the discount […]

Study Guide: Vermeer
Study Guide: Vermeer

  While I didn’t go to any photography classes or school, I did attend film school and studied primarily cinematography (though, I got an A-), and documentary filmmaking. My many cinematography professors pushed watching films with the sound off to pay particular attention to composition and lighting, but stressed the watching of light in art […]

Shirts Are Back In Stock
Shirts Are Back In Stock

Yup! Shirts are finally back in stock and we have a new addition. A tri-blend lavender long-sleeved shirt with raglan shoulders (meaning it fits your shoulders no matter how wide or narrow) and a wide neck.  It’s loose and slightly oversized, but shorter than our regular t-shirt. I like to pair it with leggings and […]

Art of Sumo – Tomoki Momozono
Art of Sumo - Tomoki Momozono

Sumo. Full of tradition, conflict, scandal. Even in these gorgeous images by Tomoki Momozono, I’m hearing the audio from the Freakonomics segment on sumo wrestling.  It makes the images more beautiful, to me. Hypebeast says: Japanese photographer Tomoki Momozono, otherwise known as MOMO, began his career as a sports photographer in 2001. Following a couple of stints […]

Because You Care How You Look
Because You Care How You Look

You’re an MMA fan. Maybe you are slowly collecting belts in BJJ, maybe you are in cardiokickboxing but have dreams of Thailand, or maybe you are a keyboard (camera) warrior like me, and you just like fighting because it’s an awesome human experiment, an amazing competition of brains and brawn. You want to sport some […]

Fuck. DREAM designers make me so happy. This is just bold and wonderful. Bibiano Fernandes vs Joachim Hansen.

Enjoy.

In Love With Looking
In Love With Looking

As I’d mentioned in this post, I don’t have anything booked this week, both on purpose and by chance — so I am cleaning the office, writing, reading, and spending time with my dogs.  Now, I like to take work whenever it comes because as a freelancer, it is difficult to say no because there […]

Scramble Stuff!
Scramble Stuff!

What’s this? An awesome-o shirt from Scramble, a store full of amazing things from Martial Farts, aka Matthew Benyon. If you’re a gentle fan of this brutal sport like myself, you’ll appreciate the clean original Scramble designs as well as the super-frickin’ awesome designs by Art Junkie Tokyo, only available at Scramble and well, in […]

More Fun With Posters + Update
More Fun With Posters + Update

Here’s another fun poster I whipped up just for the hell of it, this time for the co-main event at Strikeforce: Miami, Cris Cyborg vs Marloes Coenen. What do you think?

Just For Fun: (fake) Fight Posters
Just For Fun: (fake) Fight Posters

Feeling inspired by the new year and unusually warm winter (here in LA, anyway), I threw together two posters for the upcoming Strikeforce event on January 30th in Sunrise, FL.

We Love Genki Sudo
We Love Genki Sudo

I mourned the day Genki Sudo retired from fighting. At least there’s always YouTube! We stumbled across this newly posted music video for Genki Sudo’s “World Order.” There are a million things to enjoy about this video from a production standpoint. One, I’d never thought to purposely shoot wide establishing shots out of focus for […]

Shit We Like: The Art of Jacob Bannon
Shit We Like: The Art of Jacob Bannon

Long before Affliction and its clones all over the MMA world used paint splatter and skulls in their designs, Jacob Bannon of Converge was making the dark, sincere art whose style would find its way onto overpriced high-fashion expensive shirts. Converge is one of Casey’s favorite bands. So it was exciting to read a FIGHT! […]

Photos of Kid Yamamoto by David Lin
Photos of Kid Yamamoto by David Lin

While searching for more fashionable things to freak out over, I came across this post at Hypebeast about Kid’s return to fighting.  While they don’t mention his loss at all, the post included some stunning photos of Yamamoto behind the scenes of Dream 9 by some fellow named David Lin. I have to admit, I’m […]

More Caol Uno Fashions
More Caol Uno Fashions

The idea of fighter’s fashion is so different in Japan than it is here. Take for instance, Caol Uno’s 2009 Fall/Winter UCS (Uno Caol Showten) line, which features wool blazers and plaid vests. And long johns! I think Kid Yamamoto has fashion lines out too. It’s amazing to see that fighters aren’t just sponsored in […]

Stylin’ Jiu Jitsu Wallet from Poketo
Stylin' Jiu Jitsu Wallet from Poketo

Jiu Jitsu wallet?  That’s right!  The awesome folks at Poketo in collaboration with illustrator Yusaku Hanakuma, are offering their signature artist wallets with this nifty design clearly proclaiming the artist’s love of grappling.  I sported a Deth P. Sun designed wallet for years until it came apart, as vinyl wallets will do after years of […]

Forget it, Mayhem. It’s Chinatown.
Forget it, Mayhem. It's Chinatown.

As promised, a few more unpublished images from my FIGHT! Magazine shoot of Mayhem noir style.  I mentioned before that I relished the chance to do something stylized for a mag and when Mayhem called me, I knew this was the chance.  The actual shoot was done between my backyard, which I use as a […]

MMA Fashion: Kinnikuman x Caol Uno + 10AC Line

I’ll admit, I’m a bit of a fashion nut.  At the moment, my wallet’s too thin to indulge in my desires, but I still read and keep up on what’s going on in Japan.  From Hypebeast via Honeyee (I always have to wait for Hypebeast to translate for me because I can’t seem to remember […]
