If you’re under, say, 30, it’s probably easier to count your friends that *don’t* have tattoos than all of ’em who have some ink. What your grandma used to say was ‘for convicts’ has risen to a true artform, and oh yeah, the commercial implications aren’t all that bad either. Mr. Cartoon is proof of all that, a man whose artistic vision inspired by southern Cali life has been celebrated by more than just his clients. He’s a well-noted sneaker collaborator and is back working with Nike Sportswear again on the ‘True Colors Artist Collaboration’ as the American rep. NSW is holding events in NYC, Boston and Chi-town this week, so click the jump below for some teaser images and a schedule.
Nike Sportswear x Mr. Cartoon Events this week:
New York – Nike Sportswear @ 21 Mercer, April 27th at 8-11pm
Boston – Bodega Gallery, April 29th at 7p-11pm
Chicago – Six Points, May 1st at 7-11pm
