Long a driving force in Los Angeles’ creative culture, Mister Cartoon will apply his signature hand-rendered graphics to a limited Casio G-Shock timepiece series this month. By utilizing the tried and true DW-6900 model, the DW-6900MRC-8 edition is unmistakably Mister Cartoon’s creation, with tattoo-esque application of “clown face” in silver running on each side of the L.A. Dodgers’ Blue wrist band. More details, including Mister Cartoon’s own insignia, are found on the silver colored time unit itself. A holographic LCD display face presents the word “CTOON” when the electroluminescent backlight is activate. Etched on the water-tight aluminum watch back is another variant of Mister Cartoon’s signature, this time in his familiar curvature font.
The Mister Cartoon x Casio G-Shock DW-6900MRC-8 Watch will make its official debut next Thursday, November 12th, in Mister Cartoon’s hometown of Los Angeles. It will be a preceding event to Juxtapoz Art and Culture Magazine 15 Year Anniversary Celebration on November 14th, during which the artist will be on hand to meet fans. The event will also mark the unveiling of an one of a kind, hand painted G-Shock by Mister Cartoon, set to be donated as part “The Big Payback” online charity art auction. In the meantime, the Mister Cartoon x Casio G-Shock DW-6900MRC-8 Watch will be available at G-Shock retailers worldwide in the coming weeks.
