    I love this artist.

    I keep coming back and looking at his work

  5. Curiosa on March 19, 2008 at 7:33 am

    Oh I love his work! When I first saw them Salvador Dali came to mind. I noticed that he does use owls, books, & skulls throughout his artwork. I even saw strawberries & a king of hearts card in some of them: objects you’ve used before in your artwork. Now I do have to admit that as a girl I do find a few of his illustrations disgusting & yet I find myself intrigued by them. lol He is definitely a very talented artist.

    btw Mike, did you notice that another TX team took away the #1 spot from the Lakers & broke a few Lakers records by winning 22 consecutive games? :)~ lol I’m just teasing. Ryu didn’t let me tease him last season..whispers..he wasn’t being any fun. :)~

    hi, マイク!!now are you having a good short-lived rest after US tour?
    actually the pics you chose out are not my favorite taste but the sketches on his web page are really cool!
    it seems good for tattoo design.

    After visting his site and seeing some of his pics,I found that it’s really interesting!

    I like the way he using different colours.All the paints look colorful but not messed-up at all~

    Particularly,I love his blue sky,whether in his photos or paints.

  25. Ravaging_Hamster on March 17, 2008 at 4:40 am

    hmmmm very niiiiiice…like the Boba Fett and Kermmit pic

  26. Reem on March 17, 2008 at 4:30 am

    (first comment ever on mikeshinoda.com) Wow! how good is that? I really like it, i don’t think i ever heard of him before..?mm.He’s really good tho, i like how they are similar but different at the same time as the colors aren’t really the same as one was darker than the other two. Any way thanks for posting Mike, its appreciated, peace,Reem.

  27. maria on March 17, 2008 at 3:37 am

    Great, Mike! It really looks tremendous! It has impressed me) But it can’t impresse as much as the Japan pictures can) I’ve seen some at one gallery) Anyway, this one seems to be a masterpiece)

  28. Jaclyn on March 17, 2008 at 3:24 am

    it can be good inspiration

  30. Fishgoingwest on March 17, 2008 at 2:59 am

    I like it,really.

    Although I don’t know anything about him,the pics look so nice!!

    Imaginary and cute.

    I don’t really know what’s the meaning of these pics,I just can say that as a normal girl,I like that!!

    I’ll keep this name on my mind and look for something more about him.
