    I like graffiti, even though some of them might claim them as “vandalism”… :/
    Well, at least here.

    I’ve seen really nice graffitis here, but then I think the government had repainted the walls 😦

    I hope one day I can do so xD

    I didn’t realize it was such a short video… Like a quick little advertisement. I’m going to look him up, I don’t follow graffiti art very closely so I’ve actually never heard of him before. (I never heard of Delta either until you guys worked with him)

    ive seen some of his work before, very cool. Like your stuff more though, lol. I wanna complete the Glorious Excess Collection i have, by continuing it with the merch for “Dies”. Is that gonna be another 3 Decks, a print, and another book? I got everything before, but i wasnt there to attend, so i couldnt get it signed 😦

    hey! I saw this guy before his amazing I didn’t knew that he called himself futura! the first time I saw him was on John Mayer’s “Waiting on the world to change” video he is really good, hey mike by the way if you are still responding I’m having my first art expo on december any advice?

    Hi Mike) All these people that are pictured here in this video are making such an amazing and fresh art that it really can be called a new basis for the art development)) to my mind)
    Their view (maybe I will say simple words and some may assume they have already heard the point of it but I think it’s worth saying and placing it right here due to its importance) of reality is fresh and extraodinary. For example, in this video one can easily see different art images that when they are placed together they make the picture of this world or something that can be called the element of life, one brick of many other bricks, sands, or stones of life) Thanks for the attention 🙂

    Thats really cool,

    I still like the stuff you did for Meteora better. Anyway I just got done playing “One Step Closer” on Rockband. Congrats on making it into RB and Guitar Hero WT. Finally some mainstream recognition for a band that thoroughly deserves.

  17. Senzaikyuu on September 14, 2008 at 1:28 pm

    Hmmm..I’ve been doing some art during last year…His graffiti style is kinda different.Doesn’t look like regular graffiti.Love to see ppl attaching their own personality in their art.Nowadays u cant take that for granted.

  18. skindesbous on September 14, 2008 at 12:05 pm

    Why don’t you talk about Matthew Gray Gubler? He’s an amazing artist, video director, and actor.


  19. Yume on September 14, 2008 at 11:21 am

    yeah, it’s cool.

    he, mike,
    i opend a group in the biggest german social network for students. the group is called: “100 ways to meet mike shinoda”. If you would enter your name you would find us on page 1 of the top listings.
    and now my request: how would you like to meet yourself?
    please answer, so i could add your post to the group. it mustn’t be a serious answer ;D.
    Have a nice time,

    PS: i learned, that your wife is an author of children’s books. do you know, where i can buy one?

    PS3: Why don’t you expose your paintings in Germany. I’d like to see your art.

  26. analoggirl on September 14, 2008 at 10:01 am

    By the way, I wanted to ask you a question/make a request. If you’re a keynote speaker for the Blogging conference, you’ll have to prepare a written speech, right? Mind posting some excerpts here? Or some video footage? Thanks. 😉

  27. analoggirl on September 14, 2008 at 9:59 am

    That’s cool. I love graffiti art. I remember at the Ecko Getting Up Festival in Toronto, there was a wall set up for tagging. I don’t see much graffiti art these days, even though it’s one of the four elements of hip hop.

  28. miKer0cks on September 14, 2008 at 9:48 am

    wow!!! that’s cool!!! i also do graffiti (only on paper not in walls) but i’m not that good!!! thx for sharing mike!!! ❤

  29. Anstice on September 14, 2008 at 9:29 am
