Day 4: The Sparks "Ignite What's Next" art tour makes Santa Cruz stop



Day four of the Sparks "Ignite What's Next" art tour brought the crew to Santa Cruz to do a live installation at The Krate. This time, Alex Pardee was there to paint with Saber and Dave Choe. Many came out for a chance to watch these guys work and to meet them in person. After a day of travel, the Sparks "Ignite What's Next" tour will be in Sacramento Thursday, September 13th with a daytime event at FTC skateboard shop where there will be some cool give-aways, and an evening event at the R15 bar. The give-away there will be a brand new Bianchi Pista fixed gear. Joining Choe and Saber will be painter/illustrator, N8 Van Dyke. See below for more information.
