    cool, that was an awesome video!! i love it! its so cool to just see them paint over and over and make it look cool with those words and messages and everything ^^ kinda reminds me of the art-days during the making of Meteora ^^

    anyway, awesome video! i would love to see more things like this in your blog, Mike !! 🙂

    that was fucking beautiful.

    what sucks a bit about it is that sometimes it goes way too fast for us to read whatever’s written or just to see some of the artwork that created. but it’s still awesome nonetheless.

    Woah that’s so cool
    I think you should get together some friends and do that Mike 😉
    That looks really cool fast-forwarded…

    B-A-D-A-S-S!!!! Man, I definately envy you artist. You guys always know how to express yourself nonverbally and still get the point across and it’s tastefully done.. Hopefully one day I can find niche and be able to express myself. Anyways, Happy New Year!!!

    I’m Sorry this is out from the topic , Perhaps you will feel strange when reading this..because there are people you do not know write stupid message for you and I knew true not appropriately I wrote in this forum but I will regret if i not doing this..i just want you to know this is my BIG DAY and I only wanted to say ” thank you Mike.. because of becoming part of my life for almost 8 years”…this may sound simple and ridiculous but believed this was very important for me.. Thank you again and wish me luck…GODBLESS YOU
