is creating The Year In Fighting: 2019

Hey all. I'm creating an illustrated book that chronicles all the memorable and relevant fights of 2019. Why? Let me tell you: 

I want to create something that visually tells the story of what happened this year in Mixed Martial Arts. The sport has no season, but each calendar year a dozen stories play out. Fighters have career defining years, legacies are crafted, cinematic knockouts, Hail Mary submissions, brawls (in and out of the cage), retirements and more all happen and sadly too many of them are lost to the deluge of fights that happen every weekend. 

This is an attempt to do justice to the sport we love. 



You will get a glimpse into my studio as I create the scenes from our history. I want to hear your input, your favorite moments and help make the icons of our sport live forever. 

My goal is to fund this studio in a way that allows me to invest in better equipment, cameras to shoot video for "the making of" and the opportunity to travel to the fighters themselves and interview them about their thoughts on their careers and the fighters who inspired and influenced them.
Tiers
Pay what you want and I do what I want
$1 or more per month

It starts at a dollar but you can pay as much as you like to support this creation. 

I'll post video/vlog updates, sketches, works-in-progress and most interestingly, it will be a discussion about what you'd like to see this develop into, and find out what rewards would be cool in the future.
