'In Stock' & 'The Stockwell Winter Games' 4th Dec

'In Stock' & 'The Stockwell Winter Games' will be taking place on Sunday the 4th December starting at 1pm at Stockwell Bowels South London. Since the success of 'Out Of Stock', we have been busy organizing an event to better the last with the addition of the 'Stockwell Winter Games'. This new addition will be a test of nerve and character of those locals hardened enough to enter the competition. The Winter games will feature both BMX riders and Skateboarders (but no Scooterers or Roller Bladers I'm afraid) to include the majority of those that frequent the park. Events featured will include:

- The Hi-Jump: Competitors will face our height bar out of the sugar bowel. Last man standing wins!
- The Long Jump: Longest Ollie / Bunny Hop in 3 attempts wins!
- Fastest Lap: 3 attempts to set the fastest time round the set line.
- *ALL NEW* Timed run: 3 minute run around the park to show us what you got. Judges will rate your performance on skill / number of tricks / creativity.
- Best trick of the day: Best trick of the day in any event wins!
(Prizes supplied by DCshoecousa)
Any amateur skateboarder can enter so get down early to grab your place in the line up.

The day will continue on with 'In Stock' exhibition at The Queens Head Pub. This will start at 5pm there with the premiere of new DC flow rider Josh Jennings video edit (Nik Jones) and a mixture of old and new artwork, photography and film from the Stockwell locals. There will also be local bands and DJ's to entertain, many of whom you'll have seen down at the park....if you're local that is!

Inspirational Animations

I've been a big fan of more left field animation since Finger Mouse in the 80's. Since then there have been a ton  of seriously under rated animations released by independent studios ranging from the charming to the bizarre. Here is a selection of what I consider to be some of the best and most inspiring for their originality, approach and depth, some you may have seen others I'm confident you won't. Make sure to look up other work from these animators, you will not be disappointed. Enjoy!

AJ Fosik Wood Sculptures

AJ Fosik was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. In 2003, he received a BFA in Illustration from Parsons School of Design in New York. In the years since, Fosik has lived in various cities across the country including Denver, Brooklyn and Philadelphia. He is currently based in Portland, Oregon.

Fosik’s artwork explores the powerful medium of language and metaphor to emphasize narrative and interpretation. Using wood and found materials, he creates figural, eclectic and intricately designed three-dimensional works that intrigue and provoke.
Fosik’s animal subjects and anthropomorphized beings are built using a complex process in which each form is carefully handcrafted by arranging hundreds of pieces of individually cut and varnished wood, which the artist paints in vibrant colors and patterns.

The Invisible Bridge

"Bridges usually go right over water – they don’t even touch the surface. Surprisingly, if you submerge the vast majority of the structure under water, allowing pedestrians to effectively travel between the waves, it makes the whole experience of using a bridge much more exciting. " A very cool aquascaping idea by Ro & Ad Architects....
