It's time for our annual Halloween Skate Jam at the Portland Park. Halloween night, starting at 5:30PM and you MUST be in a costume to compete. This year we'll be judging best trick - 14 & under, then best trick on two different obstacles. As always, a best costume prize will be presented and we've got Creature Skateboards sponsoring the contest for the second year in a row. This year, we'll be giving out signed Creature decks by none other than Scarecrowoven! We've got three of them to give away, along with some other prizes - so come and get 'em!
Update: Thanks to all of the artists who participated in the show this year, and to everyone who came out to take a look and say hey! Another successful year in the books. A special thanks to Skeet Vanderchuck, for helping to make it happen - see you next year, Oak Street!
Here is a list of artists that made the show this year exceptional - now go check them out.
Last year LBS & Skeet Vanderchuck put together a skate related art show as part of October's First Friday Art Walk in downtown Portland. Fresh off Congress St being named one of the best streets in the U.S. our second annual show is coming up tomorrow night 10/3 at 72 Oak Street, directly off of Congress and right across from Nosh.
We've got local skaters, artists, photographers and snowbaorders - all connected to the local scene - exhibiting. Pics, sculptures, grip jobs, decks. It's going to be bigger than last year. One of the artists, Scarecrowoven, is a Maine native that has moved back home after some time in NYC. He is working on deck graphics for Creature, Landyachtz, Shipyard Skates, and he makes action figures. Seriously, how fucking cool is that - designing skate graphics and making action figures, among other things.
Come check out all the work, it'll be up from 5pm to 8pm at 72 Oak Street, just Don't Getcha Hopes Up
"Creature is proud to present out newest limited offering. The Rise of Cthulu's on our team's favorite 8.25 shape and is limited to 400 pieces, numbered. This board also comes with our most requested addition yet, and by that we mean that Stu wanted us to make them. Here you go Stu, these boards come with neon green rain poncho that has it's own Creature bag. The perfect accessory for dealing with all those upcoming global warming inspired mega storms. Fuck Yeah! "
