Vault by Vans celebrates Mickey’s 90th birthday by partnering with four artists to create their interpretation of this beloved Disney character.
Renowned illustrator and graphic designer John Van Hamersveld is an icon, recognized for his influential graphics and images that are quintessential markers of Southern California culture. Best known for his psychedelic patterns and vibrant color schemes, he is a pioneer in the worlds of art, music, and surf—blending these worlds perfectly into his extensive repertoire.
Legendary tattoo artist Mark Machado, more famously known as Mr. Cartoon, is a Mexican-American artist born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Cartoon is recognized and sought after for his richly detailed hand-rendered style of fine line tattooing—a technique that uses diluted black ink to create shadows and depth. What sets his work apart is the textural intricacy and stunning details of his three-dimensional appearing works.
Geoff McFetridge is a Canadian designer, illustrator, and animator based in Los Angeles. Known for his signature minimalistic and surreal illustrative style, McFetridge’s work intuitively ignores creative boundaries and spans a broad range of art media. The versatility and simplicity in his work is balanced by the use of elegant line drawings and paintings.
Taka Hayashi continues to be a Vault mainstay. His commitment to detailed craftsmanship and unique design continues to be synonymous with the designer’s aesthetic approach.
