Mitch O'Connell has somehow has been able to make a living as a freelance artist. Big shot editorial clients include, Rolling Stone, Newsweek (4 covers! Put that in your pipe and smoke it!), GQ, The New York Times, Time, Playboy, Entertainment Weekly, The New Yorker and Juggs! Advertising campaign art for Coke, McDonalds, KFC, Kellogs plus many more. In-between paying jobs he creates fine art masterpieces that adorn gallery walls (the trick he's working on now is to get folks to buy 'em and hang 'em on their own walls). He's exhibited from New York to Chicago, to Germany to Miami to Tokyo to Hollywood to Mexico to wherever there's a gallery located where he wants an excuse to vacation (Hello Paris!). Also in his spare time creates popular tattoo designs. Next time you're in a tattoo shop looking for something to have etched on your skin, check out the flash on the walls for some of his brilliant work (if you don't see his doodles Mitch recommends tipping your hat in a gruff manner and exclaiming, "Good day Sir!" as you depart). To avoid this loss of customers if you have a shop, why not buy one (or all) of my 3 sets today? Also, pick up the critically acclaimed book collecting 250 of his favorite designs titled, cleverly enough, "Mitch O'Connell Tattoos".
Yes, you say, we all know about his superstar accomplishments, what about the man himself? Is he as wise, dreamy and sexy as he looks? Yes, yes and YES! Let me tell 'ya, he's a man of simple pleasures. He loves to hang in there, hang loose, hang ten and let it all hang out, keep it real and keep on trucking, do his own thing, chill out, mellow out, kick back, take care of business, keep on keeping on, get his groove on, take a load off, reach for the stars, hear where you're coming from because he really cares about you as a person and my is it hot in here wouldn't you feel more comfortable undressed my special lady?, do what he's got to do, mellow out and rock on, long walks, sunsets, holding hands, good friends and good times!! Favorite pastime? Spreading joy wherever he goes.
