I had the pleasure of getting Mr. Cartoon to do my most recent tattoo yesterday. For two hours I was treated to his amazing stories about his gang influenced youth, his passion for drawing and how an artistic education and strong family ties created the brand of Mr. Cartoon.
A tastemaker who has elevated Latin streetculture to an artform. Cartoon does graphics, clothing projects (joker), Movie posters, video games, and shoe projects. His car “sculptures” have been featured in museum shows and he has a worldwide following collecting his art. My favorite car was 1980′s Hell’s Bells with it’s own coke mirror in the back. The tour was totally redankulous-I was blown away.
