I first connected with Mr. Cartoon back in 97 at Loud record when he was doing tattoo’s for all the Loud artists like Mobb Deep, Xzibit and Wu Tang and have been a fan since and have been blessed to work on various projects with Mister Cartoon.

We recently connected again at Tuff City, one of the dopest tattoo spots in the East Coast, inside the shop it’s designed like a New York Subway, decked with everything from subway seats, handles and they even have the subway doors. Cartoon and I got a chance to go to the back of the store where they have a cool backyard set up. There were some great pieces up on the walls, it seemed liked these pieces would have been tagged all over the trains back in the days.

We couldn't leave with out Mr Cartoon leaving his mark, he copped some spary cans and got busy tagging up the walls with a custom piece. As always I had a great time catching up and watching him do what he does best, create amazing artwork.
