Upper Playground is proud to announce several collaborative projects, releasing this week, with Mister Cartoon. Inspired by the city of Los Angeles, New York graffiti, and low rider car culture, legendary West Coast artist Mister Cartoon has gained grand scale notoriety through tattooing several hip hop artists and celebrities. Mister Cartoon’s work has also appeared in a number of magazines, album designs, clothing lines and product collaborations.
Mister Cartoon created a signature can for Montana Colors and Upper Playground’s limited edition artist cans.
