MMA & WMMA charity portraits

Since I got this shiney new silver name I figure I better take advantage of it to help raise some money for some great causes!  :)

Right now I'm auctioning off a number of original MMA & WMMA portraits. Half of the proceeds will go to Disciple Dojo, the other half will be going to International Justice Mission ( organization that is on the front lines of fighting child sex-trafficking and modern day slavery around the world.

The fighters I've drawn below have all been very supportive, as have past charity fighter portrait subjects. We've were able to raise hundreds of dollars for IJM in '11 (much of it thanks to the UG and people like Kirik!) and I'd love to increase that figure in '12.

Here is the link to where you can bid:

And here are the pieces up for auction at the moment. They are all 8.5x11" Prismacolor on paper:

Pablo Popovitch

Michelle "Karate Hottie" Waterson

Julie Kedzie

Please spread the word, and if there are any other fighters out there who'd like to do a charity portrait, don't hesitate to contact me!

And if you want, you can follow along with my future pieces either via Facebook ( or over at the Disciple Dojo Art Thread here on the UG (
