“Calling himself â€śMister Cartoon,â€ť this Los Angeles street art legend has had a strong relationship with Nike for many years. His detailed black and white drawings are highly sought after in the music world and beyond. When presented with this project, Cartoon jumped at the opportunity to work on a uniform that would represent the country he loves. His eagle mascot is tough as nails, with a halo of stars and a look in his eye that says, â€śDonâ€™t mess with the U.S.â€ť On the crest, â€śUSAâ€ť is written in Cartoonâ€™s modified version of old English and scrolls remind wearers of the visual language of tattoos art.”
