Chris Rini discusses his new book The Fine Art of Violence Volume 3

Video interview with Chris Rini above

Chris Rini has brought an interesting take to the sport of mix martial arts.

Whenever Rini is watching fights, he starts drawing and then posts his artwork to his twitter account.

The artwork has been a nice site to see over the years and it has helped Rini land jobs with some MMA networks over the years including his most recent role with Bloody Elbow where he draws MMA Squared, the first and only MMA editorial cartoon.

After years of producing so many great drawings and painting, Rini decided it was time to publish a lot of his artwork, so he came up with the idea of releasing a book called The Fine Art of Violence.

Recently, Rini just published volume three of the series and in this volume, fans can see artwork and essays from every single weight class from atomweight to heavyweight.

While Rini did most of the artwork for the book, artists Juni Ba and Marco Bucci also accompanied Rini with some art pieces.

The essays in the book came from Julie Kenzie, Josh Rosenblatt, Tunisha Singleton, Sean Sheehan and Eric Stintin.

Following the release of The Fine Art of Violence Volume 3, Rini spoke with MyMMANews about the process of how he started the book, some of the artwork that can be seen in the book, working with the staff and his art career.

You can watch his full interview in the video above.
