Mister Cartoon

What an unexpected and fun night Wednesday turned out to be! (Note to self though: always read the invite before you agree to go somewhere). If I had done so, I may have shied away from the bohemian vibe of my outfit and gone with something 'else' to fit in a bit more haha. Oh well,  it's always good to
step out of your element...

 So, a friend of a friend works for Mark Machado, better known as Mr. Cartoon, who is a well known and respected tattoo artist and graffiti artist based here in L.A. I was impressed to learn that Machado designed the logo for Cypress Hill, and has tattooed celebs and musicians such as Dre, 50 Cent,  Eminem, Justin Timberlake, BeyoncĂ© Knowles and Snoop name just a few. (He also has a clothing line Joker Brand and has collaborated with companies like Nike, Diesel and Microsoft).

 The event was in East downtown L.A to celebrate the alliance between Sanctiond and Mister Cartoon who "designed premium car care products to satisfy the unmet needs of those who share his lifestyle and passion for music, sports, fashion, and cars." “Music is as important to a car as its paint,” stated Cartoon. “My art, tattoos, and the way I design cars are all inspired by music." (street chopper mag) 

There was a free In-N-Out burger food truck, open bar, DJ spinning, body painted girls dancing, and endless eye candy of beautifully luxury restored cars to browse (complete with hydraulics later in the night)...what else does a party need? ;) An interesting night for sure...
 Oh YEAH...a rush of people surrounded Mr Cartoon of course to get pictures and interviews...I crept my way up the the front and when he looked at me I pointed at him flirtingly haha...was stoked he walked right over and he took a picture with me:)


  1. Very cool event! I would have been sold on the free In-n-Out alone! LOL. Love your jacket and I think you look very nice. Hope you have a great weekend! <3
