    100 pairs of sneakers? Damn! Wish I could have that much. I only got 10๐Ÿ˜ฆ. Your artwork is amazing. Wish I could put all those paintings in my house. I ordered the “Xander”. I’m a big fan of DCs so, I must have one. Great job Mike. Amazing as always.

    i know that hasn’t got anything to do with this threat, but i found it at the internet and just thought of you xDD

    Hi Mike………..I’m following the advice from fans who replied to my post in the Linkin Park message board. The thread is titled “Request for any Linkin Park Band member”. If you get the chance, please give it a read…………we’ll be watching from the grass in Mountainview, and my daughter ‘s name is Devon.
    I know you’re a busy guy…………….if you get the chance to read this, and if you have any opportunity to make my daughter’s day even more memorable, then thanks, and I appreciate it.
    Regardless; thanks for the music, and we’re looking forward to the show.

    Oh and, by the way, I started with playdoh. In preschool I’d make snails and flashlights for everybody. I don’t remember when I started drawing, but, I think it was after I got into story telling and writing. It was early though. I figured since we’re both artists I should share that ^ ___ ^

    That was a great read! Detailed and full of key messages. (haha) It’s pretty interesting to see that more and more people are turning to bloggers and new media to get the message out there. I guess it works to your advantage, seeing how you “only do e-mail responses to press interviews.” ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. ShadowerLiltani on August 6, 2008 at 5:11 pm

    Damn me and my size 5 feet… I was actually considering buying the shoes today and my feet are way too small… Maybe next time you’ll do this, cause I know you can’t resist, you’ll have a broader range of (christ in hell Spike keeps jumping on me… he’s a kitten…) sizes. I WANT XANDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sniffle Anyways that was a fantastic interview๐Ÿ™‚

    Edit: I did buy both art books in the store a little while ago. I love art books and I am trying to start a collection. I’m very excited๐Ÿ˜€ I have four already, 2 about Salvador Dali and 2 about art history

  13. SimplyMode on August 6, 2008 at 4:35 pm

    Nice, I’d never seen your first remix before. It’s dope!
    && The second of course!.
    I’m buying the “glorious excess” book sometime next week..
    (:

  14. AdrenalinShockk on August 6, 2008 at 2:27 pm

  17. Curiosa on August 6, 2008 at 9:12 am

    Nice interview.๐Ÿ™‚ You almost sound like me, everything depends on what I feel like doing at the time. lol

    Here’s something to ponder. Mike have you ever wondered how your art would do if you weren’t Mike Shinoda from LP but rather just Mike Shinoda the unkown artist? Take care.๐Ÿ™‚

  26. I_B_Long on August 6, 2008 at 2:30 am

    :p

  27. KATHYxx on August 6, 2008 at 1:29 am

    THAT’S what my old DC shoes used to look like!?

  28. Jelly on August 6, 2008 at 12:23 am

    Hey I started learning drawing as soon as I could hold a pencil, too ^^ I’m very interested in drawing you know… Besides that, I love to edit LP posters with PTS!๐Ÿ˜€ I think I can drawing whole day without eating๐Ÿ˜€ They’re so exciting! And I want to become a graphic designer like you… I try to achieve that^_*

  29. soyuneik on August 6, 2008 at 12:09 am

    Subliminal message occurring ..now.. You want to use one of my beats…you are getting sleepy. Very sleepy.
    Oh shit, Chris! Yea please do tell us, Mike! ILL BILL? Come on, at least give me this one. ..I’ll be good.

  30. Chris on August 5, 2008 at 11:52 pm

    Bought myself a pair of your shoes the day they went on presale. I can’t wait to get them.

    Oh and question, if you end up reading this, I just saw the tracklist for Ill Bill’s upcoming album and I had previously heard you were working with him a bit…on his wikipedia page (as unreliable as that can be lol) you aren’t mentioned. Did you end up working with him?

  31. ms_shock on August 5, 2008 at 11:28 pm

    Yea… that’s realy good!!! xD xD xD hahaha “triple threat” xD

  32. MissNatalie1984 on August 5, 2008 at 11:21 pm

    hey man that’s an awesome interview.

    you’re officially a “triple threat”๐Ÿ™‚ you should be proud.

    congrats!

  33. kairimai on August 5, 2008 at 10:44 pm
