The Kali Collie by Margalot The Kali Collie by Margalot
A little B-day gift for my friend and instructor, Alex! Do you get the pun? Kali (pronounced kah-lee) is Filipino martial arts including empty hand fighting, stick fighting, and blade fighting. I take this over at the Francis Fong Martial Arts Academy ( [link] ) where Alex teaches. Fun times!

Made with colored pencil and watercolor.



Original piece unavailable.

Most excellent. Far too little kali-related artwork on this site.

Nope.  Though sometimes when I paint I use both hands simultaneously.  It's only when I really need certain affects because it's really hard for me to do!

I don't like how that collie's holding that knife.

It may stab the next person who looks at it funny.

And here I was expecting a dog-like version of Hinduism's own four-armed goddess of destruction.

This is way better, I gotta lay off the Dew.

It was inspired by that story you were telling me about somebody's collie. I was so confused! My mind could only process it as "kali"!

That...is a badass dog. I would definitely want him guarding MY lawn gnomes, I can tell you that.

How long have you been training in the Kali style?

Good question. It's hard to say. I took it some years back for a while, but it wasn't my main focus. If you include that time, I guess like two and a half years? I feel like that's kinda misleading. Let's just say I've been focusing on Kali intensively for eight months.

Very cool...I took taekwondo for about 5 years back in the day, now I want to focus on a new discipline, I was thinking maybe either jiujitsu or aikido...but a part of me wants to try something not so traditionally 'East Asian', y'know? *shrug* Either way, sounds like good stuff. =D
