Witchcraft Skateboards Tour 2011 video

The start of the Witchcraft Skateboards tour at the beginning of this month saw the road crew consisting of French, Jake Snelling, Jamie Morley, Mark Tidbury and many friends hit up skateparks around the Herfordshire and Essex areas. With the plan to pick up more team riders and friends along the way, the first stop on the tour was Saffron Walden’s American built paradise. The sun was out, the concrete coping got rinsed and luckily no one was injured on the first day!

On day 2, the team riders met more friends at Hemel Hemstead’s Extreme Connexions park for session on their brand new coping and pool tiles. The sight of tube socks was ridiculous and even the familiar faces of Ben Raemers, Carl Wilson and Mark Munson were there to welcome the lads off the van.

Enjoy this footage put together by Bromley of these 2 packed days of skating on the road. Look out for the full tour video on Sidewalk Mag when it’s ready to roll soon and thanks to Terrathorn for the use of their music.

A Day In the Life of illustrator Paul Parker

paul_parkerIf you have seen Paul Parker’s incredible artwork before then you will know that this guy is an art machine fueled by a passion for painting and drawing.

Inspired by childhood fascinations with video games, Toxic High stickers, action figures and packaging along with Classic Mens Adventures magazine covers, Parker has carved out a skill for attention like nobody else in the UK. His illustration work has graced books, exhibitions in Los Angeles and have also been repped on decks for Death, Witchcraft and Superdead Skateboards to name a few, so we decided to knock on his door to see where all of this creative energy is spawned from.

It just so happened that the week we wanted to film, he was shooting an advert with Lovenskate for a new t-shirt design over at Harlow’s concrete hole dressed as a jungle dweller!

Big things are in the works for Paul Parker right now so keep your eyes peeled for news on where his art will take him in the future.
