2005 mr cartoon nike air force 1 los angeles Classics Revisited: Mr. Cartoon x Nike Air Force 1 Low (2005)


Very few individuals can boast the levels of success achieved by Mark “Cartoon” Machado. Mr. Cartoon, recognized for his intense graffiti and impeccable fine-line style of tattoo artwork, went from air-brushing t-shirts and cars at the age of 12 to being one of the most sought-after tattoo artists in the industry. The man is representative of all-things Mexican-American culture in Los Angeles, staying true to his heritage while forging a distinct, award-winning style of artistry that’s been sought after by the hardest of thugs to the most well-respected of international brands.

Mr. Cartoon worked with Nike in the early-mid 2000′s, completing a series of Air Force 1 designs that paid homage to the city of Los Angeles; each of his designs featured the fine, pinstripe-style brush strokes, but one pair in particular that stands out above the rest is the LA Dodgers-inspired “Blue Tattoo” release. It featured navy and grey with spider-web detailing on the toe-box, a graffiti-style LA embroidery on the heel, and several other graphics that made these one of the most sought after Air Force 1s of all-time (the insanely-rare Hyperstrike version commands nearly $2,000 in the open market). In addition, this design was later revived in 2009 as part of LIVESTRONG capsule of these highly-regarded Air Force 1s. Continue on for a look at this legendary Air Force 1 Low for tonight’s Classics Revisited and stay tuned for more AF1s on the following days!

We were starting to wonder what’d become of him on Saturday when we looked at a collaboration between Reebok and Swedish tattoo parlor Salong Betong, so it’s particularly good timing to see Mr. Cartoon’s latest efforts come across the Sneaker News ticker today.  The LA-based ink god can trace a chunk of his mainstream popularity to the 2007 Vans x The Simpsons collection where he and several other street artists contributed their take on Matt Groening’s megahit series, but this new Vans OTW Alomar is all Mister Cartoon.  They come in a clean navy leather and nubuck combo that adds gold stitching and embroidery details plus a plaid sockliner, and Mr. Cartoon’s Vans Alomars will hit select retailers later this month.
