Grapplethon 2016 - Fundraising art print

** UPDATE **
In a spectacular last dash bidding spree, my Ebay auction closed at the staggering total amount of £460!!! After seller fee deductions and printing costs, I estimate that means I can donate roughly £400 to charity - the final total for the entire Grapplethon 2016 was £5,157.

Here is the original post:-

Each year in Bristol, BJJ blogger Can Sonmez organises a fundraising Grapplethon where participants spar in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu over a 24 hour period. This year, the event is being held on the 26th-27th March over at MyGym in Bristol. Money raised will be donated to One25 a Bristol-based charity, specialising in enabling women to break free from street sex-work, addiction and other life-controlling issues and build new, independent lives. Full details on how to take part and/or donate by clicking this link here.

I myself will be taking part in the event and I have also contributed by designing the official poster and t-shirt - the drawing of a phoenix was suggested as it was such a powerful symbol of rebirth and renewal. The t-shirt, kindly printed by Grapplethon sponsor Tatami Fightwear, will be given to those who raise the most money.

You too can contribute by bidding on my art print (top photo). This is a signed, one-off edition print, ie only one exists in the whole wide world! It measures 80x60cm and is printed onto 240gsm natural white archive quality paper. The highest bidder on Ebay will have the print delivered to them via post. All profits from this item will be donated to the Bristol Grapplethon.

Here are more close-up photos of my phoenix art print:

Thank you very much for helping, I hope you enjoy the art print!
