Red Bull Throwdown 2014 - Saturday

Added on by James Daly.

The first day of Throwdown was incredible! The venue is bigger and better than last year, and there are so many trickers from so many parts of the world attending. It's been wonderful seeing friends for the first time in years.

The day was dominated by the elimination battles, sandwiched between the open sessions and seminars. The Saturday of Throwdown is always a day just for us as trickers and the community, with the public joining in on the Sunday for the finals, so the energy was one of amazing camaraderie and community. 

The vlog is coming a bit later on (I need some sleep haha) but for now here are some photos! For more photos and details check out the Invincible Tricking coverage at this page here :D

Red Bull Throwdown Travel Day!

Added on by James Daly.

I'm in Atlanta! I've spent 25 hours straight traveling, have flown from Sydney to LA, had the usual interesting experience getting through US customs, and then a second flight from LA to Atlanta, this time in the company of Steve Terada, Donovan Sheehan, Kyle Cordova and more excellent people.

My hotel is insane (thank you Red Bull) and the view is so nice. I'm completely exhausted though so am spending my first night chilling out in my room, and will hopefully find some of the others a bit later on. Room service dinner is on the way, so until then, here are some photos of today's adventures!

The most terrifying sausage and egg I've ever seen. Still ate it, and wanted more.

New Release: Brand New Limited Invincible Designs!

Added on by James Daly.

Four new Invincible Tricking designs just launched on the online store! Two new singlets (that were so fun to draw), a subtle tee, and the comfiest tricking shorts I've ever worn (now including pockets!) These, like the Vintage Crew released last month, are limited and hand-numbered in order of purchase, so if you're looking at getting some you can find them in the New section of the online store =] I'm very excited about these, and I hope you like them!

All the details for this release are also on an Invincible Tricking blog post you can find here.

P.S. You can also find these and more designs in the illustration portfolio =D

New Invincible Tricking Release - Vintage Crew!

Added on by James Daly.

I get so overly excited when new Invincible clothing designs get released! They're worked on for ages before they make it to the online store, and it's such a build-up of planning and excitement.

The first of 2014's updates was just dropped on the Invincible Tricking store; they're super warm, a wonderful colour, and I've been test-driving mine for the past few days and absolutely loving it. Check it, yo!

You can find them in the online store here!

The next few weeks will be very busy with a whole lot of new designs on the way, and I can't wait to show you.

NARUTO

Two of my favourite drawing apps joined forces yesterday, with FiftyThree releasing their SDK and Procreate working seamlessly with the Pencil stylus! This is only one of my first attempts at more in-depth digital painting, but holy shit is it fun!

Drawing Night!

Last night was the first of (hopefully) regular drawing sessions! Setting aside time to do nothing but draw, as well as being with people doing the same, was fantastic for creative thinking. I'm planning on finishing this sketch and will update this post when I do =]

The sketch was done in Paper by 53 using their Pencil stylus.

I saw Sydney city from an entirely different angle tonight from John's new apartment. THAT VIEW!

Manly In Winter

Added on by James Daly.

Walking back to my car today from the Invincible Tricking office I decided to grab some pictures of Manly. It was windy and freezing cold and the surf was messy and choppy, just the kind of stormy, moody, tempestuous beach weather that makes winter bearable. 

Manly is a very cool place. If any of you are traveling to Australia and come say hi at the Invincible office, make sure you explore the beach and corso too - even in winter it's beautiful!

Camera Adventures! Sydney Harbour

Added on by James Daly.

I just took way too many photos of Sydney Harbour. I can't think of anything else clever to write, it's late, so yep, here are three photos of the city tonight. I'll probably improve this caption when I wake up 😆

I also got to dress all nice 💁

THIS WEEK'S SESSION || 25 JUNE 2014

Added on by James Daly.
25th of June's session! So it's freezing cold in Sydney. Winter sucks. Tonight's session didn't have much new going on, but it's the debut of my new camera at a session so it's gotta go online.
