Sorry that we didn't tell you about this sooner, but this one is definitely better late than never. The long story short is: legendary tattoo artist Mister Cartoon is in town; there will be music from Flavorheard; and it's all FREE like [insert your favorite rapper on parole]. It's one of those events that definitely warrants canceling other plans; I just went to check the set-up...
The man's hand style is recognized around the world and is both menacing and beautiful. Bred in Los Angeles, Mister Cartoon's art work can be seen on the arms of our time's most lauded musicians. His work is steeped in the East Los Angeles Chicano culture of low riders and graffiti.
Nike Sportswear chose Mister Cartoon as the American artist for the True Colors Artist Collaboration - a fusion of art and fashion for the World Cup. Nike Sportswear will be holding events to launch the collection in New York, Boston, and Chicago next week. Come out to see the collection and Mister Cartoon in action.
At the Boston Event, Flavorheard (just voted best djs by the Boston Phoenix) provide the sounds, while Nike is bringing Mr. Cartoon, a customization machine and a laser machine - for you to customize tees .... We're also hunting down a taco truck.
