The System 510: The Hobby Problem

Hobbies are funny that way. They have a way of turning around on you, and the joy you start getting out of them is replaced by how bad you feel when you let them down. I’ve had this happen with going to the gym, drawing, biking, and just about every website I’ve ever run. Consider this some comic-therapy.

Am I the only one that goes through this? Share your stories and possible solutions in the comments.

To those of you at Connecticon, THANKS SO MUCH for making me feel missed all weekend! It was great to hear all the updates on Twitter and via email. I’ll be there next year of course, and back to hosting Super Art Fight. In the meantime, I’ll be at Otakon in a few weeks, so hopefully I’ll see some of you there.

Here’s a pic of me at my VERY FIRST table for The System, which was at Connecticon 2008 3 years ago. In fact, The System marks its 3-year-old anniversary this week, and I wish I could be at the convention where I premiered the comic to celebrate with some of my oldest and dearest friends and fans. Unfortunately, two of my close friends are getting married and while conventions come and go, hopefully they are only going to get married once and I should be there for it.

While I won’t be there for it, plenty of my friends and some of my stuff will be! Of course, there’s SUPER ART FIGHT, which has its biggest show of the year at Connecticon:

To those that are going to be attending, be sure to go to this show. It is going to be amazing. Plenty of huge things are planned, including guest artists and our first ever ROYAL RUMBLE.

For those looking to buy all the shirts and prints and things that I’d normally be selling at a con, my chart cohort Caldwell is going to be there in the Dealer Room with “To The Googles” shirts, sharing charts, and “F*%k You You’re Killing the Internet” shirts. Buying from him is the same as buying from me, we split the profits. Otherwise, there’s always the website, HilariAwesome.com.

I wish I could be there to say hi to some of you guys that always come by the table, some of which I’ve been annoying from the very beginning. Unfortunately that will have to happen online and at other conventions, such as Otakon in Artist Alley. Otherwise, I’ll be there next year, and can’t wait to see you then! I hope you all have a great Connecticon without me, look forward to seeing you all soon.

I’m copy/pasting this from the SuperArtFight website because this gives you everything you need to know but PLEASE come to the show if you’re in the area and can make it:

If you checked our regularly updated Twitter feed, you may have noticed we have something special planned.  And folks, it’s a big one.

Next weekend, we at Super Art Fight aren’t just going to be invading Connecticut, oh no – we’ll be making it a full-on NEW ENGLAND SWING as we team up with the fine folks at vitaminwater® to present a full featured live event in Boston, Massachusetts!

Over one year ago we brought our trademark brand of artistic mayhem to Boston as a part of ROFLCon 2010.  We blew minds, melted faces, rocked the house and were even a trending topic on Twitter, but on Thursday Night, July 7th we RETURN to Beantown as the exclusive kick off event for vitaminwater® uncapped LIVE, a month long series of amazing live events.

The show is for ages 21+ and will be held at 132 Brookline Avenue, in Boston, MA, Zip 02215.

We’ll be presenting 3 of our trademark bouts, featuring the following talent:

  • Super Art Fight Champion Michael “Spaghetti Kiss” Bracco
  • Former SAF Champion Jamie “Brawlin” Baldwin
  • Super Art Fight Co-Founder Jami “Angry Zen Master” Noguchi
  • SAF Idol Finalist Henry “Business Ninja” Alexander
  • And the debuting talents of Boston’s own Shelli Paroline andBraden Lamb

If that wasn’t enough for an amazing evening, the event will also feature the musical talents of The Bodega Girls.

Sounds amazing, right?  Right! Now, unfortunately, this is a VIP level event, however, our amazing partners at vitaminwater® have given us the opportunity to open the velvet rope for a select few of you!  A limited number of tickets are available NOW at http://superartfight.eventbrite.com/ for just $15! You’ll need a password, and that password is…superartfight.

Help us kick off an amazing weekend in New England and a month of amazing entertainment at vitaminwater® uncapped LIVE onTHURSDAY NIGHT, July 7th!  It’s going to be an event unlike any other.

The System 503: Breaking Routine

Thanks to all who came to Super Art Fight in DC this past weekend! We had a great show. The highlight for me was rapping on stage. As I mentioned on Twitter, I sang a fair amount of Partners in Kryme’s hit T-U-R-T-L-E POWER. And luckily for you, there’s video evidence:

Comicsgirl also posted what’s probably the best recap of what it’s like to attend a Super Art Fight show. Check out her review here. My favorite part was how she described the commentary. It’s not my favorite because it’s about me, it’s my favorite because I think she nailed it:

Nover, along with fellow host Marty Day, kept the action moving. They have a teasing and affable rapport with each other and are always willing to just keep making jokes. Their reactions are part of what make the show so great — they have the perfect combination of quick wits and bafflement about what they’re seeing being drawn and really pull the audience into the action. (Nover also treated the audience to a rendition of Vanilla Ice’s “Ninja Rap” from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle II. I would love to tell you it made sense at the time — although, it almost did — but mostly, it was impressive he remembered as much of it as he did.)

Unfortunately, it was actually from TMNT 1. Still a great review.

The System 474: Just Stopped Working

Another week, more comics! Just a reminder, I’m heading off to SXSW at the end of this week to bum around, geek out, and party hard with all the other Film/Interactive/Comedy types. I’m going to put up a post about all this later today, but if you’ll be there, let me know! I’d love to meet up with some friends and Systemics.

Also, SUPER ART FIGHT IN DC! March 18th! I haven’t done a good job keeping up with the hype train, but if you’re in the area please help me make this a hit!

If you haven’t been to or seen a Super Art Fight yet, you’ll probably need to see what’s going on. For that, I provide this reference video from our last show:

Enticed? Good. Now you’ll care about the fact that we have our NEXT BIG SHOW THIS FRIDAY! In Baltimore! All the details are on this flyer. Click on it or here for the rest, plus info on where to buy tickets (I think it might sell out):

Finally, if you want to learn more about SAF, I did an interview with Brightest Young Things about Super Art Fight and beyond. For a little behind the scenes, you should check it out. Of course, the best is the intro:

Ross Nover is a busy, nerdy man.

So true, so true. You should read the rest here.
