    I am an aspiring artist. Ever since I started drawing back in kindergarten, that’s all I’ve wanted to do, but here in India, it doesn’t work like that. The only stream that can pay you enough is science. So that’s what I was going to go with. That is, until I saw your artwork. I was so inspired that I decided that I wouldn’t be just another Indian going for science because that was what paid. And so, I am going to study fine arts and go for animation later. I am writing this because you have no clue how much you have unknowingly done for me. U provided the push I needed to go for what I want, and I am eternally grateful. Just thought you should know. Thank you.

    Hello Mike,
    My name is Madhura Redij, and I am a 17 year old Indian. I am an aspiring artist. Ever since I started drawing back in kindergarten, that’s all I’ve wanted to do, but here in India, it doesn’t work like that. The only stream that can pay you enough is science, more specifically, Information Technology. So that’s what I was going to go with. Then, one of my friends told me to check your artwork out. I had been a Linkin Park fan for a long time,so I did and I loved your artwork, especially the one titled ‘Wine’. I was really inspired; so inspired in fact, that I decided that I wouldn’t be just another Indian going for science because that was what paid. And so

    For the way I am,for every step made closer
    To you,
    ”I know it’s easier to run, to runaway
    But for everything I’ve done, i’ve changed;
    For everytime I was in pieces, and everytime I hit the floor
    and didn’t quit!
    For every bad habit that i had broken
    And for every place that i have found to rest
    Every time I’ve given up cause nobody was listening
    So i could leave out all the rest

  16. johnmike on March 3, 2010 at 6:04 pm

    I am a Spanish fan and is the first time that I write. I just want to say that you are an amazing artist and that for my Linkin Park is more than a group. Your music has helped me move forward, and a few months ago I knew that you are an integral Fort Minor and Chester is Dead By Sunrise. The two groups also I like mucho.Es the first time that I write on the blog. Thank you thank you thank you. You are the best! Noelia greetings

    Awesome art!

    The only things I can draw are some kind of tribals…
    After I saw your art I wanted to learn how to paint something thats goes that way.
    (I hope that I’ll get it done… someday)
    I’m a big fan of LP and of you and your art.

    At this point I have to apologise for my bad english… wushhhhh

  33. linkinladie328 on September 8, 2009 at 1:48 am

    Hey Mike! i just saw a Carson Daily interview. i’m pretty sure it’s kinda old, but i just saw it on tv. i’m so excited to hear LP is planning a tour for next year after the release of the new album. i cant wait! thanks! love you guys! 😀

  34. stephrc79 on September 7, 2009 at 10:10 pm

    Went to see the exhibit this weekend. Took my mom and we both just LOVED it. The rest of the museum was awesome, as well. Oh and the tea shop there is fan-freakin-tastic! Yeah I’m a girl, I’ll admit it.

  35. anaslinkin on September 7, 2009 at 11:20 am

    awesome pic´s!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. avfh21 on September 7, 2009 at 9:12 am

    Alhamdulillah, you are on flickr.

  37. Andrey_Alex on September 6, 2009 at 6:59 pm

    Mike, why don’t you make a DeviantArt for ya?
    DeviantArt is a good one to post your artworks and photos,
    I don’t know it works like a portfolio, but more than one networks to show your work is a good idea
    (in fact, my browser isn’t opening Flickr -.-“)

    Cheers Mike! Thank you for your beautiful art.

  38. analoggirl on September 6, 2009 at 12:19 pm

    Thanks for sharing your album! I love seeing your works in progress and I can’t believe you were still working on your installations DAYS before the opening! Congrats once again for producing a stunning, thought-provoking exhibit.

    When you gave the JAMN members a tour of GLXS (Dies), you fielded questions from the audience, mentioning that you normally don’t have the time or physical space to produce installations. I hope you continue to experiment with different media in the future because you’ve shown that there are no limits to your storytelling or creativity. The paintings, installations, film, WeMix song, and Metrix remix came together seamlessly.

    Can’t wait for the next one! 😉

  39. ghostly on September 6, 2009 at 4:09 am

    Oh~Mikey~You’re so sweet~~~Thanks for your GLXS DIES photo album!!That makes me feel like I’ve been there at your show!!Love you and your art~~~

  40. Chodrial on September 6, 2009 at 2:48 am

    Hello Mike,last year I ‘ve bought your art but I still haven’t received it.Any advices?I really want to get it.Thanks.-Victoria.

  42. lucky_cat on September 5, 2009 at 5:40 pm

    They’ve got good competence so let’s support’em

  44. cincybmxlpfreak on September 5, 2009 at 3:51 pm

    Hey Mike. What media did you use for your “Four Seasons” pieces? I love how Icon is on the front wheel cover of the motorcycle. That looks absolutely SICK!

  45. linkinparkette on September 5, 2009 at 2:49 pm


  46. Smurf1 on September 5, 2009 at 2:48 pm

  51. Trenskinoda on September 5, 2009 at 7:15 am

    Hi Mike… I can’t help but be inspired by your work. I always find myself staring at art supplies and wanting to purchase some so that I could start but eventually leave the store with nothing. I’m a frustrated painter. I do sketches but I always feel that I’m not good enough. What can you suggest?

  52. xxlelexx on September 5, 2009 at 6:56 am

    thank u mike. luv u 🙂

  53. Mostafa on September 5, 2009 at 5:32 am

    that’s cool Mike! Thanks for posting it! Great job man. Your art is sooooo marvellous,very interesting!
    I whould like to know,what is more important for you in ur artworks.Color or composition?? Ur works with such a great colors

  60. ShadowerLiltani on September 4, 2009 at 9:58 pm

    Epileptic- My boyfriend talks like Phi. Living with Phi would be painful. You can respectfully pass that on, if you like. Anyways, yay, more pictures for me to stare at endlessly! I love when people make that “concentration” face… I’m the type of asshole who would sneak up behind you with a one of those horns, wait for you to lift up the brush, and blare like hell. I’d enjoy every second, too.

  61. Yifen on September 4, 2009 at 9:28 pm

    i really like it!!
    Can you share more about your artwork ‘s inspiration or something special meanings !

  62. EpilepticChickenScratch on September 4, 2009 at 9:14 pm

    ROFL. Phoenix burned you SO badly.

    @EvoOba “mshinoda says: I will destroy Phoenix with a lazer beam of pure awesomeness”

    @phoenixlp first of all… a laser beam is comprised of laser. Secondly… you can’t destroy the very form of awesome with “pure awesome…” That’s like triple-stamping a double-stamp. Lastly… when it comes to awesome, Shinoda’s a pink belt.

    Your move, Chicken ‘n’ Shinoodles.

  63. linky_luvslp on September 4, 2009 at 8:48 pm

    OMG AGAIN!!! lol still sexxi! you are the best buddi!! EVA! ily xxx ❤ xxx ily

  64. jerunia_chaz07 on September 4, 2009 at 7:15 pm
