Mikey O'Shea Solo Illustration Show!

Super-talented scrawler Mike O'Shea is having a solo show of his illustrations and art - he's a great artist, marvellous skateboarder and all-round funny guy and "good egg"!

It will definitely be worth checking this show - his pictures are equally well drafted and entertaining - there's always a touch of humour and usually a naughty element! Cheeky!

Hmmm... That poster looks very familiar! That cap and beard collabo, with a pair of "lucky Lakais"!?!?


4th - 30th September,
Donuts, 8 Perrry Road, Bristol BS1 5BQ

Witchcraft & Lovenskate Tour

This should be gnarly fun! I'd love to go on a tour like this - reminds me of the old HELL TOURS to Cornwall - touring round from skatepark to skatepark!

The Witchcraft team: Jamie "Aaargh", Sam Roberts and Jake Snelling plus the Lovenskate team: Lucy Adams, Alex Barton, Ewen Bower, Craig "Questions" Scott and Liam Sproat. I'm sure that French, Lovenskate Stu etc will also be shredding, or possibly schralping.

More info here.  (actually... less info there!)

Death, gore, dismemberment whole type of go-for-it type of thing...

...After all that is what skateboarding is all about.

Stoked I won the Xsite Design A Sticker Comp In Association With Witchcraft Skateboards on the Sidewalk forum.

Luckily, I had the opportunity to sort out the dodgy eyes on the original pic - here's the updated one...

You can check all the original entries here. I really liked Blinky's gnarly tree and Voodoo's red skulls and cuppers design, which surprisingly didn't make it through to the voting stage.

Big thanks to Xsite Skatepark and any of the N26 massive who may have voted for me!

In semi-related Witchcraft news, Alan Glass has uploaded another slice of metallic skateboarding on Vimeo - click here! Watch out for the snot! In nomine Sathanas indeed.

DLH Fun Day 2010, Saturday 31st July

All the details are on the poster. No, the picture is not of Charles Manson, Gary Heidnik or Aleister Crowley.

Nothing meaner than The Deaner...

Cardiff Skatepark 2001-2003

Cardiff's indoor skatepark - footage from 2001 to 2003.

Featuring Sharpy, Cashman, Nicky Cornell and various other Welsh locals, plus visiting Bristol locals, Jason Lunn, Chrissy Will, Jam, Matthew Bailey, Carl Vance, Dixcel, Justin Haggerty, "Barton Hill Bob" (Chris Leng), Wes from Rock Solid, Guff from UK Ramp Hire and myself.

Edited the old footage and uploaded this a week or 2 ago and forgot to stick it on the blog.

The music is by Anhrefn - who I saw support Fugazi YEARS ago. They were bloody good!

Boba Fett? Boba Fett?! Where?!

...On my new key ring.

Dirty, Gnarly, Rough Old Concrete

Took a trip a couple of weeks ago to check out the 2nd phase of Hereford skatepark with Jam, Wes, Owen Hopkins and Jason Lewer. The young 'uns were both ripping - too much youthful talent!

We were supposed to do a 5 minute stop-off to check out the gnarly old concrete ramp in Oldbury-on-Severn, but everyone seemed to enjoy it so much we probably spent more time there than Hereford.

Jase didn't seem to be put-off by the cracks and total lack of platform on the crusty ramp, BigHoppa was flinging some mad flingers down Hereford's double-set (YO!) and I was super-stoked to add frontside to complete the "Friends of the Shallow End" list.

The video's also on MPORA - click yer!

Warehouse Edit

As usual - late for the blog, a little edit of Jam, Wes, Chrissy Will and me skating the "dry spot" in Bristol.

The first version had Ice Cold Ice by Hüsker Dü on it, but YouTube said FREEZE and I got numb. So, here's the director's cut with a fully different sound - Buju Banton...
