    i love this piece, it looks so cool
    its my new desktop picture =)
    awesome work

  2. axrinekey on June 27, 2008 at 8:51 am

    LOL.
    I can see it.
    The pieces are HUGE! ;D
    So many skeletons.

    Anyway, good job.🙂
    I hope I can have a view of the pieces even though I’m not in LA. xD

    I love looking at paintings up close. I can’t draw or paint very well, but I like to do it anyway, so it’s cool to see how professionals create art. I love your artwork. (And I heard from an art teacher in high school, many years ago, that hands are the hardest part of the human form to draw, so bravo to you for doing a great job on that!)

  4. I_B_Long on June 26, 2008 at 6:05 am

    i so wish i could go see your your stuff, but im in germany (military, hubby is in iraq). i had no idea you did this! your artwork blows my mind almost as much as your music (ALMOST!)
    btw, the concert in mannheim (06-24-08) was AWESOME!
    wasnt a huge fan of the new album till i heard it live (and actually paid attention…)
    YOU ROCK!

  5. Jaclyn on June 25, 2008 at 8:48 am

    Still cant find the words to express my attitude to SONG, i love it that’s for sure! The hand is priceless, i just wanna hold it😀 And i want to tell you that the pic on the background here ( skeleton and two girls) reminds me the meaning of the 6th arcanum of Tarot (The Lovers ) but it seems it’s better to call it ‘Bifurcatio’, like Freedom Of Choice, and all is seen in non-traditional way. And now i know why skeleton has dents in his head – it’s becoz of headphones he used to wear when he was alive, and now he just doesnt have ears, and now he can hear another music

  6. zahra on June 25, 2008 at 5:31 am

    they are really cool…but all of them are in the same styel !

  7. snapscratch on June 25, 2008 at 5:11 am

    very very nice great work man!

  8. happyfan on June 25, 2008 at 4:37 am

    b0d – I think so too xD

  9. LittleMJ on June 25, 2008 at 3:09 am

  10. nadine on June 24, 2008 at 11:30 am

  11. Ewelina16 on June 24, 2008 at 7:16 am

  13. Madlen on June 23, 2008 at 5:32 pm

    yay new pics…:Dis this your favourite piece?:Di read something about britney’s…thing:Dhaha and i’m really interested about the pregnant shocking relaps thing…i wanna see it live:Danyway i wanted to ask you-is there someone you really admire as an artist and are you planing on working on future pieces with that someone?:D

  14. Curiosa on June 23, 2008 at 2:05 pm

    Now on to something else. I watched part of the Spike awards last night & LOVED Matt Damon’s speech! I cracked up laughing! Apparently the Celtics are Megan Fox’s team too. lol The Celtics did end up kicking Lakers’ butt! :)~ lol You really have to give it to the Celtics, they had some great D & definitely deserve the title. The last game was horrible! It was as if the Lakers just gave up! Congrats on the win! I just saw the roster for the US Olympics basketball team. I wonder why KG wasn’t on there but anyway I’ll be surprised if they win the gold. Hope you’re having fun over there.🙂

  15. Curiosa on June 23, 2008 at 2:05 pm

    REVERSE GRAFFITI: That’s really cool! Didn’t even know they did that. I really love the outline of the landscape. That was great. In San Antonio kid’s are getting paid to put up graffiti over unwanted graffiti. You’re artwork, I really like the message you’re sending with this piece. Really nice.😉 I just might staart liking ur artwork.

  16. Curiosa on June 23, 2008 at 2:02 pm

    con…Antony Micallef: Loved his work & his messages which are so true. I think my faves are his bronze statues; the detail’s amazing.🙂 THE HAPPENING: ha ha loved the way you showed your opinion. Sorry but Stewie’s still cuter than u :)~ I have to agree w/someone else on here, the trailer wasn’t convincing enough that it was going to be worth it. I really do have a hard time believing u would go up to someone & punch them in the face. U seem 2 soft 2 do something like that. :)~ What I can’t wait to see is Wanted w/Angelina Jolie. That looks like an awesome movie!

  17. Curiosa on June 23, 2008 at 2:02 pm

    con…Ping Pong: those guys must have plenty of free time but they r gr8 at it. This might be a dumb ? but why do they call it ping pong when no paddles are used? They’re great at throwing the ball & kicking it in. But 2 actually use a ping pong paddle might actually give u a different result cause of how & where u hit the ball on the paddle. Ask som1 who plays tennis, racquetball, or ping pong. All-in-all I did enjoy the video. Thanks.🙂 con…

  18. Curiosa on June 23, 2008 at 2:01 pm

    Looks like u were busy posting on here Thurs while we were on fmmb. btw u don’t lurk on there do u? Please say no so we can go wild over there.😉 I was telling the girls since u haven’t been there since Dec that u probably 4got ur pssword since ur now old & stuff. :)~ j/k Anyway here r my responses 2 ur blogs. con….

  19. Malwusia on June 23, 2008 at 1:55 pm

    MIKE?CAN I HAVE A QUSTION?=] COULD YOU WRITE SOMETHING TO flexy0@buziaczek.pl ?? THIS MY BEST FIREND’S EMAIL AND SHE IS 18 IN SEPTEMBER SO I WANTED TO BRING HER SMILE AND YOU CAN HELP ME….SO I HOPE THAT YOU’LL FIND SOME TIME:D THANKSSSSS!! SMILE AT CHAZ FROM ME=]

  20. plaaplaa on June 23, 2008 at 1:31 pm

    really good artworks. COME TO FINLAND AGAIN, we are waiting you :D:D

  21. rockermeg on June 23, 2008 at 12:43 pm

    Congratulations JHURYN…

    I would like to say there were 2 things wrong with that competition:

    1- You had to be 18 or over to enter

    2- You could only enter if you lived in the US

    No offence but that really sucks…but I do appreciate the fact you guys are from America and it would be difficult to host a world-wide competition like that one…but still!😦

    Loving the paintings!!!Can’t wait until the actual show!!Will there be an LPTV episode like your last one???I do hope so(hint hint)

    Megnxx

  22. Jhuryn on June 23, 2008 at 12:13 pm

    Mike,
    I’m on the frontpage of linkinpark.com introducing “Leave Out All The Rest” for those in the USA. It’s such an honor to be chosen to introduce such an amazing video. Thanks to LP and LPU for choosing me!!!

    AAAHHH SO COOL!!!! =0))))))

  27. Janni_Loves_LP on June 23, 2008 at 7:12 am

    wow…I love this piece! I think this is really beautiful and well done! I’ve said this many times before; I think your’e one of the most talented people ever, and I really wish I could be there at the art show and meet you (again, hehe).. But it’s kinda hard since I live in Denmark.. (WHY GOD, WHY??!)

    anyways, I’m looking forward to see the other pieces! I’m sure they’re just as awesome!😉

    Much respect – Janni❤

  28. maria on June 23, 2008 at 5:17 am

    you know what Mike, that’s really fantastic, gorgeous, tremendous)))))) You’ve pictured the world’s main problems or let’s say, the world’s main sins) It reminds modern vanitas (do you remember that headline you’ve posted here?) of course you do)
    The world must give you the award. Or something that can be compared with Oscar)
    And we all hope that you gonna shock and rock this world with your Masterpieces, Mike)))))))))))
    FIAT MIKE SHINODA)))))))))))))))))))the most talented MC)))))))))))))))))))))) and vocalist)))))))))VIVA LINKIN PARK)))

  29. lp_lucia on June 23, 2008 at 4:21 am

    this is fuckin’ amazing!!! i hate the fact that i can’t come to your show ‘cuz i live in a fuckin’ country called Romania X(

  30. ms_shock on June 23, 2008 at 3:47 am

    I’ve just talked with one girl, who was on your show in 21/06/2008. She’s so happy…. Why life is so severe???? I live in this fucking ass named ANGARSK – a little town near the lake Baikal. After graduating my school maybe I’ll live and study in Novosibirsk with my sister – It’s a city, more then 1 million people lives there, but it’s too far from Moskow too… I’ll never see you! NEVER!!!! Yes, I can study in Moskow… Or maybe i WILL study in Moskow…. but it will be so difficult. Mike help me, just say any words of the support… PLEASE!!! I need your support… if you want, i’ll give you an e’mail: ms_shock@mail.ru
    -poor little girl….

  31. ThunderStrike on June 23, 2008 at 2:41 am

    Whether it’s music or art, you never fail to make a fascinating display of your talent xD

  32. numb_missmurder on June 23, 2008 at 2:21 am

    Oh-my-god…you’re a fucking artist! ^^

  33. Blaesbjerg on June 23, 2008 at 1:01 am

    Waow! It’s really great, theres nothing better then when you post something about your art! .. I WISH I could go see it in real life.. You really make living in Denmark suck :b.. Hah!

  34. Heshotmedown on June 23, 2008 at 12:52 am

    Holy shit, this is awesome! Ok now it’s official, I hate the fact that I’m living in germany. I would love, having one of this awesome pieces as original…
    Well, I hope there will be at least some prints in your shop again, even if they’re not as good as an original. They look just to stunning to leave em as a pic on my laptop =D

  35. navee on June 23, 2008 at 12:43 am

    looks pretty dope! love it i already have seen it before in a website that had an artcile about the show like it a lot cant wait to see the new ones

    hey what do you think about shepard fairey? you talk about lots of artists but never about shepard his an L.A. icon on street art what do you think abut him?

  36. Yoko_Nagisa on June 23, 2008 at 12:08 am

    Nice. I like it ^^

  37. NickTheCroatian on June 22, 2008 at 10:45 pm

    Excellent work Mike, keep doing what you’re doing, it’s amazing. can’t wait to see you guys at jones beach for projekt rev and p.s. are you a fan of comedians? I just found out that George Carlin died and he was a comedic genius. I’m not a really big fan of stand-up comedy, but everyone knew George Carlin. It was sad to hear, but we’ll always remember his “Filthy Words.” if you don’t know what i’m talking about then definitely youtube it. take care Mikey

  38. ms_shock on June 22, 2008 at 10:21 pm

    HAHAHA!!!! SHOCK!! Did you specially show the word “SHOCK”? LOL

  39. DaniShinoda on June 22, 2008 at 10:07 pm

    I like the SONG very much. I have a doubt, do you like Corel Draw for digital arts? Or do u use another appl?
    I really i would like of any contact to you for reply my questions.

    great work mike!
    Take care

  40. NoFace on June 22, 2008 at 9:42 pm

    Bring love to the world? lyke wut? My IQ drops some point, dang.
    Love where you’re going with this, fatass. Song is really really awesome. nods

  41. ninguem on June 22, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    i saw two pics of britney in this frame :O
    did you like britney? hahahahahahaha, but your piece are awesome, i love “mr skull”

  42. shinoda_me on June 22, 2008 at 9:33 pm

    very nice indeed… i love ‘making of’ pics … keep posting as many as you can … i wish i could go to your show…..I STILL FUCKING WANT ‘SHH’ =(

    whats the news on the third pic?

    have a nice day =)

  43. MissNatalie1984 on June 22, 2008 at 8:59 pm

    wow, Mike – Song is amazing. I really like the juxtaposition of the painting… for me, the skeleton is perceived to be the main focal point of the painting, however, the background has so much intricate detail, it actually becomes the main focal point. i really like how that comes across. if a print was ever made of this painting, i’d definitely get it.

    congratulations on everything.
    ❤ Natalie

  44. nikkiann0100 on June 22, 2008 at 8:54 pm

    Wow Mike those sure are awesome. I really wish I could go to your artshow. It looks like it will be alot of fun. This is off the subject but I just saw the Guys Choice Awards and congrats again for tha Ballsiest Band award. How come Chester and Joe were the only ones that accepted the award. ? Anyways, nice job.

  45. Rezzy19 on June 22, 2008 at 7:39 pm

    Oh my god. These works of yours are amazing! I can’t wait to buy the artbook when it comes up for sale. If I get to meet you this summer, you’ll have to autograph the artbook you already have out. =D

    Keep going man!

  46. Sukka3 on June 22, 2008 at 7:22 pm

    are these actual newspaper and magazine clippings? how long have youbeen collecting them? have you always had the idea to use em in such a way or you just thought youd hold on to them and maybe someday put em to use?

  47. Illara on June 22, 2008 at 7:06 pm

    they are glorious excess (born) indeed.🙂 i love the new art pieces. its awesome!

    lol, loved every of your artworks🙂

    xoxo

  48. Doggie24690 on June 22, 2008 at 6:35 pm

    TO CIARALVSLP: This is Mike Shinoda’s official blog. As for him replying, it depends on the circumstances.

    …and I really do love the new art Mike. It’s amazing. It gives off a dark feeling and I think that’s why I enjoy it so much and also, the way I’m reading into it, it’s making a message. Pretty blatant but that could be just me. Haha. Thank you for showing the pics!

  49. asianotter on June 22, 2008 at 6:11 pm

    wow! very interesting . . . very interesting indeed. i can’t wait to see the full collection in a couple of weeks. thanks for sharing and hope to see you at JANM.

  50. lynndarwinharris on June 22, 2008 at 5:54 pm

    You are the most talented musician and artist ever! I can’t wait to purchase!

  53. AussiePrincess on June 22, 2008 at 3:35 pm

    OMG I love the first one!! You put so much effort into all your work!

  54. Alba_Tramonto on June 22, 2008 at 3:01 pm

    Mike, my love…

    You did not try to draw something kind?

    Skulls, skeletons… not so optimistically!

    Be kinder to the world, and he becomes kinder to you!

    It is necessary to bring love to people, love, instead of death

  55. Spindelfobi on June 22, 2008 at 2:28 pm

    That’s totally awesome. Wish I could go to your artshow but I live in Sweden ):
    I love your artwork though, you’re amazing!

  56. Arsalan on June 22, 2008 at 1:57 pm

    Amazing artwork. Are all these paintings? and what methods have you used in your artwork? Also, do you use Adobe Photoshop too?

  57. alyeska39 on June 22, 2008 at 1:47 pm

    Awesome, man! I love it that you share all this stuff with us!

  58. Fresh on June 22, 2008 at 1:14 pm

    What’s the exhibition all about?

  59. CHEN_IL on June 22, 2008 at 1:09 pm

    wow!!! beutiful. i would love yo know what was your inspire and how can you explain all the details. i realy like your art, keep being so great!:] come to ISRAEL😀

  60. Susannah on June 22, 2008 at 11:53 am

    When I had saw these pictures I remembered the film – “Ghost rider”.

  61. analoggirl on June 22, 2008 at 11:42 am

    Tupac, Snoop and Axl – is this the lineup for the next Projekt Revolution? (We all know that Tupac’s still alive. haha) Thanks so much for sharing these pics. I love seeing how your mind works and the process you take to arrive at the final work. Also, you attention to detail is amazing; I can tell that you’ve labored over every clipping.

  62. nataku on June 22, 2008 at 11:29 am

    i love the way you painted his jakcket!

  63. LinkinNessa on June 22, 2008 at 11:26 am

    uhm…at the fifth picture from above….the right guy…isn’t that snoop dogg ?? looks like…^^

  64. ColorScheming on June 22, 2008 at 11:10 am

    you are so damn talented. I wish i had the talent to do art like that. I have all these ideas but when it comes to putting them down they look like shit. thats why i do alot of graphic arts because i can put my ideas down and they come out looking like i
    Pictured. But i am excited about your art show! i am going, for the autograph signing. I live in vegas,so i hope everything goes smoothly and i make it there, and get to meet you. You are truly an inspiration. Hopefully you read my letter i gave to you at the joint show when you were on stage .

  65. Ilo on June 22, 2008 at 10:54 am

    Hey guys, thank you very very much for the absolutly fabulous concert yesterday in munich. I´ve seen several LP concerts but this one was the best! I hope you´ve had as much fun as the crowd in front of the stage, I still feel like I´m dreaming, LP will allways have a place in my heart, for sure!!

    Have fun at the rest of the tour, I hope Brad is really feeling better…..didn´t looks like….. :-((

    Ilo

  66. PinkWater3 on June 22, 2008 at 10:19 am

    i really really like the background in this piece, it’s awesome.

  67. santory_time on June 22, 2008 at 10:13 am

    yay! there’s even Adriana Lima on it!

  68. santory_time on June 22, 2008 at 10:12 am

    yay! there’s even Adriana Lima on it!

  69. cuz on June 22, 2008 at 10:01 am

    great! thanks for close-ups😉 especially the fourth photo makes me feel the piece. i mean, the texture… and it looks amazing, can’t wait for the art show😀 and the one with brown – blue jacket looks amazing. amazing how one colour is changing into the second😉

  70. soyuneik on June 22, 2008 at 9:51 am

    Thats badass. how big is it? His eyes remind me of the old James Bond intros.

  71. demolition141 on June 22, 2008 at 9:42 am

    I’m so sorry to have to comment again…I just found out more information on the radio contest…You have to call between 5:30 am and 10 am eastern time Monday-Friday. I’m sorry for the inconvenience. Also, I noticed on my other comment the underscores didn’t appear. It should be like this kyur4(underscore)th(underscore)ich@msn.com
    Can’t wait to see more of your art in the future❤
    Marina Ortiz

  72. nillp on June 22, 2008 at 9:40 am

    i don’t know what i loved most..

    if it was the skull or its background..!

    amazing, dude.. congratulations!😀

    it’s too sad that i can’t go to see ur art show.. :

    i do hate live in brazil.. since i’m too far from everything that happens in “LP’s world” and u guys never back here..😦

    anyways; keep rocking and take care.😀

    love ya ~ mk’nil ♥

  73. Xenith on June 22, 2008 at 9:33 am

    Love the choice of newspaper clippings that portray the message this series is so strongly putting across. Can not wait to see the show Mike… From the internet unfortunately though😦

  74. psykobouliz on June 22, 2008 at 9:30 am

    maaan, i love this!

  75. Fianwien on June 22, 2008 at 9:06 am

    Wow, I see Tupac Shakur at the bottom, near the skull guy’s hand. Am i wrong?
    I hope it’s just something about giving respect to him. You know, “Britney’s pussy” and “Tupac Shakur” in the same picture, looks like a little disrespectful. But you wouldn’t do that, would you? Nah.

    Anyway, obviously you put some hard work into this. I’m sure you’ll get satisfied with the results at your show.
    Love, D.

  76. paul0 on June 22, 2008 at 9:03 am

    Nice mike. I can see the words “Britney” and “Pussy” together, predictable. BTW, you had an asian MTM tour right? Why didn’t you come to the Philippines? People here forgot your music. Also, if you need a vacation from the fame, you can always take a vacation here.

  77. lp_fm_fan on June 22, 2008 at 8:34 am

    That’s awesome, Mike. I wish I could go to the art show, unfortunately I can’t go anymore. Family issues. >_<

    Have a great time there.

  78. Shinodabestfriend on June 22, 2008 at 8:17 am

    Hell yeah! COOL!! Give always your best, Mike! ….uuups sorry…. YOU ARE THE BEST!😉

  79. Avi on June 22, 2008 at 8:14 am

    I like this paper&spaltter thing🙂 Looks awesome!

  80. masimoes on June 22, 2008 at 8:08 am

    wow thanks for showing us some more of your art in progress, Mike! I really like it, the concept is amazing, the background and everything looks great. Love from Brazil, Olivia.

  81. mina on June 22, 2008 at 8:04 am

    I see “Britney’s pussy”. Fantastic!

  82. demolition141 on June 22, 2008 at 7:54 am

    Cool art! I wish I could go and see show. I think you’ll be great in Tampa at PR. You always outdo yourselves. Hopefully this year I’ll get LPU meet and greet passes. It’ll be my first time meeting you. I was wondering if you could do something for me. I understand if you can’t. A radio station is having a contest to see who can get the most famous person to call. I was hoping you could if you have the time. The contest ends 6/27/08. The number is 727-579-2000.If you could do this, it would be so cool. The prize is tickets to 3 shows.I think all you have to say is Polly Ortiz referred you. If you have to tell them anything else, my e-mail is kyur4thich@msn.com
    Thanks Mike,
    Marina Ortiz

  83. JPkaukonen on June 22, 2008 at 7:52 am

    I love the mood and the feeling I get by looking at the pieces,, awesome work man. < 3

    nice,thank you so much for sharing those with us.I like the whole mix,its such a good reminder of how some live with us yet live in their own little world,this little circle,bubble like world of fame,filled with fairies,sparkles,and all things perfect.How others get a little bite of the real world by going to jail and such[then of corse bailing out with their money] i like how you captured that,yet again you could mean something tottaly different,i dont know,i like how its put all together either way.Any way,thanks again,have a wonderfull day and again,i am looking forward to your gallery,should be fun as.

    your artwork is amazing! its awesome how you’re good at drawing/painting different styles, and there’s really no limit to what you can create. i love how you put the articles and pictures in the background and make them actually look like they are part of the painting. i wish i could goto the show! all your stuff is the shit🙂

  93. Harboe on June 22, 2008 at 6:45 am

    It looks really good🙂 I must say, you’re a great artist. A shame that a lot of people don’t know …
    Would really like to see the hole collection, but there’s a long way from Denmark😉

    anyway, asking about your live performance on projekt rev in europe? any surprises? maybe you guys bring back ‘WITH YOU’ to setlists? pleeease ) thanks

  96. Stelios on June 22, 2008 at 6:33 am

    hey mike, in the second picture there are two paintings, and the on last post “glorious excess 3” u showed us one of those two paintings: a greenish painting and it looked like it was the painting “SONG” unfinished but now i see two paintings that look like “SONG”, are they different paintings? but it looks like it is the same character on the same position/pose. am i right or am i wrong? i think they are great! good job, i cant wait to see them .. ps: the painting u did with DALEK i cant find a picture of it on the internet, and i think it woud be awesome to upload a pic of that painting cause DALEK is one of my fav artist but u r the best! -stelios

  97. RavRule52 on June 22, 2008 at 6:32 am

  102. yun on June 22, 2008 at 6:11 am

    Amazing..That huge one behind the paintings looks great! Can’t wait to see them all😀 I’d like to buy one but you said that it’s only for those present at the gallery..sob. Anyway you didn’t say anything here about the banner!!! It’s becoming famous all over the internet, everybody saying “after the storm, here again for LP”. It’s just moving that you took my banner..Thank you.

  103. Diamondback on June 22, 2008 at 6:09 am

    Is that Axl Rose? I just love the skull + leather jacket combination. Epitome of cool.

  104. RomanaW on June 22, 2008 at 6:08 am

    Wow, I really like it! I wonder what talent you haven’t got…🙂

  105. So_S on June 22, 2008 at 5:53 am

    it looks really really amazing Mike! i wish i could go to the art show. too bad i live far far away in Greece😦

    oh well, i’ll just have to make do with pictures🙂

  106. Aditya_the_warrior_within on June 22, 2008 at 5:52 am

    awesome work !!😀

  107. Veronika on June 22, 2008 at 5:49 am

    Hi Mike (and another guys =o) ) Your art belong to my favourites. Itˇs very interesting how you lay the colours on…. I like it very much. Keep it up ;o) So good luck in your life and incoming work…and sorry for my english, I learn it only less than a year

  108. AshleyDawn on June 22, 2008 at 5:46 am

    Looks good. Honestly, you have got to quit with the jacket, Stryker was right! (joke, joke)

    Side note: I love Adriana Lima and feel really stupid for that being the thing that stood out. Haha.

  109. Y_ on June 22, 2008 at 5:45 am

    wow…interesting..

    wish i were in LA..

  110. Sammy on June 22, 2008 at 5:40 am

    how great they look !!

  111. Alexandra on June 22, 2008 at 5:38 am

    You’re genius! Are these newspapper pieces real or they’re painted? Anyway this looks very interesting mysterious and new for me! and i’ll say it again YOU’RE GENIUS!!

  112. Zmazhiing on June 22, 2008 at 5:27 am

    Nice,Like it😀

  113. lp_stef on June 22, 2008 at 5:21 am

    hey mike thanks a lot for the GREAT show yesterday in munich!! it was awesome!! but the m&g was…well…short xD like every time…hope i can talk to you guys a bit longer one day… “reading my eyes” was amazing!! and you should also play “and one” once again…take care

  114. ShadowerLiltani on June 22, 2008 at 5:19 am

    That first picture is so menacing looking, I love it ^___^ Mikey’s art got a little political now😉 Which is a good thing. When those who are idolized speak their opinions, more people tend to listen up. By the way, I got a new kitten, eight weeks old. We’re all sitting in the living room with him, talking about names, and my father suddenly blurts out, how about Spike? His son, my stepbrother, is a fan of you guys but that’s all my dad knows, it’s a total coincidence. He’s got a little spikey tuff of hair on his forehead, too. If I had any pictures of “Spike Minoda McCall” I’d show you them cause this kitten is freakin’ adorable.

  115. Meteora20 on June 22, 2008 at 5:18 am

    wow that looks very awesome. i like you art. you art show will be grat of course. take care
