Mitch O'Connell

Mitch O'Connell has somehow been able to make a living as a freelance artist. Big shot clients include Rolling Stone, Newsweek, Spin, The New York Times, Time, Playboy, Entertainment Weekly, The New Yorker and Juggs. In-between paying jobs Mitch creates fine art masterpieces (keeping a positive attitude) that hang on gallery walls. In his spare time he works on tattoo flash. So 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 Mitch's stuff. Mitch is 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, do what he's got to do, mellow out and rock on!
