Back in December in SoCal, at MoonEyes, Matchstick, Matt, and I were vending the magazines along the side of the Van section. A lot of people were stopping by; asking about the Vans and telling their stories. Well, one of those guys that stopped by (Victor Carrillo) asked us, “have you seen the van Mr. Cartoon did for Vans Shoes”? We hadn’t heard anything about it. He gave us his card and said to give him a shout if we wanted to check it out. Maybe we could do a little something on it. Friggen cool, right? Then we started getting emails from readers asking us if we had seen the 2013 Vans Brand Anthem Parade video with the Vans’ Van in it. We had not. We were into it, so we gave Victor a shout. He put us in contact with the right people and next thing you know, we’re shooting this cool Mid Dodge that Mr. Cartoon and Vans Shoes put together. We couldn’t wait to show you. Cause if we hadn’t heard about it, there’s a good chance you hadn’t either. We got a chance to ask Mr. Cartoon about this Road King.
To read the full interview with Cartoon, pick up Vol.3 of Rolling Heavy Magazine.
Thanks Mr. Cartoon, Steve Zeitzoff from Vans Shoes, and everyone else who gave their time to help pull this story together. For more information on Mr. Cartoon or Vans Shoes, check the web addresses below.
