TOP NEEDLE ARTIST MISTER CARTOON CREATES EXCLUSIVE WATCHES WITH DIESEL
Most people don't have a tattoo on their wrist but Diesel is about to change that. Diesel and the irreverent and controversial tattoo artist, Mister Cartoon, have collaborated to create two new customized limited edition watches.
Drawing inspiration from the streets of Los Angeles where he grew up, Mister Cartoon is a master of fineline, richly detailed, hand-rendered designs and is well known for his murals, album covers, logos and celebrity tattoos.
This first artistic collaboration for Diesel has resulted in two distinctive models.
DZMC0001 (shown here) features the artists's iconic clown face in silver on a black dial with red details and is based on his own hand-drawn design. On the back, he has revisited the famous Diesel Mohican, giving it his own satirical and creative twist. The watch features custom engraving on the side of the case and embossed stenciling on the silicone band.
DZMC0002 features oversized roman numerals by the artist, as well as his personal logo. The chronograph watch also has an LED light display function, while the silicone band is a striking olive color with custom stenciling.
Each limited edition watch will be individually and sequentially numbered and will be sold in special packaging.
Los Angeles tattoo artist Mister Cartoon (a.k.a. Mark Machado), who has branded, among others, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Beyoncé Knowles, Snoop Dog and Justin Timberlake. His corporate client list is equally high-profile: he designed a concept car for Toyota, a limited-edition shoe for Nike, a phone for T-Mobile, the logo for Cypress Hill and the lettering used in Grand Theft Auto.
Having grown up in the Harbor area of Los Angeles County, young Cartoon began airbrushing t-shirts and Lowrider cars before adopting the legendary "Fineline Style" tattoo art, which was developed in the California prison system.
