    Mike,
    Great work! You’ve really inspired me to get into art. Now while mine are still little drawings on my school notes, I really hope that my art can progress and maybe end up at least a little close to how great this is, haha. Question, what got you into art, and how old were you? What are some of your techinques?
    You’ve also really inspired me with my music. I’ve been playing guitar and drums for about 5 years. Before i started listening to LP and FM, I was still playing, but not with enthusiasm or with any heart. After listening to LiP and FM, I’ve really gotten a lot more into it. You are definitely my biggest influence. I just wanted to say thank you for all that you’ve done! πŸ™‚

    nice pic, mikemike~ thoughtful~!!!XD

    Hey Mike, thanks for sharing the final piece with us! Seeing the detail and reading Kathyxx’s insightful comment about the archangel Michael makes me want to deconstruct this bad boy. I wonder, is your “true self” battling various forces of evil? It looks like the archangel is fighting the Lord of the Flies, which is pretty dope. I can see other evils too, like a strung-out Mickey Mouse who’s rockin’ some serious bling. Does good ol’ Mickey symbolize corporatism, consumerism or selling out? Curious minds want to know. Then again, maybe I’m too curious. Sometimes a doodle is just a doodle…

    Awesome Piece dude .. that girl look so Pretty !!!

    NOTE : Yes Shirley stop yelling its so annoying !!

  13. ShirleyAlvarezNY on October 25, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    HEY MIKE THIS IS SHIRLEY ALVAREZ..I MET YOU AT THE JONATHAN LEVINE GALLERY IN NYC….I WOULD LOVE TO SEND ALL THE PICTURES I TOOK OF YOU……THANK YOU FOR MAKING IT AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE..YOU ARE A TRUE BLESSING AND I AM SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONVERSE AND HANG OUT WITH YOU. I HOPE YOU READ THIS AND CAN GET BACK TO ME WITH A RESPONSE.

  14. KATHYxx on October 25, 2009 at 6:51 pm

    This reminds me fondly of Tim Bizkup for some reason.
    This is one of my favorites you’ve done so far, Mike.

    I think I also recognize the horse in Fons’s painting. That one made laugh really hard.

    EDIT: oh look Bizkup is in this show too. lol. I was talking about a different painting above.

    @Shirley, please stop yelling.

  15. LPmadman on October 25, 2009 at 5:11 pm

    It seems the title sounded reasonable coz Usually if we read the word True Self which always shown is a Self Portrait with a variety of improvisation but you describe it based on real experiences ( Mystical , Perhaps ! ) and then poured through to the fairy characters as an object , very complex .. and according to me the power of this painting is in The Colors Mixture with a lil float to the surface accent which make it look alive .. Cool Job dude !

  16. luckyluck on October 25, 2009 at 4:37 pm

    Cool Paintings but I’m so fucking jealous to the boy who was lying in the clouds LOL ! … He looked very relaxed and comfortable . Damn !! .. I hope that weird snake bit him LOL ! .. btw The Blue Creature that looks like Stitch , dripping mouth and wearing a necklace with the Big letters S .. is that you ??

  17. Madlen on October 25, 2009 at 3:28 pm

    Oh wow…this is…amazing:DI mean it really is…it’s so different in the good way.If this is representing you that you’re a strange person (again in the good way ;).I would love to have that on my wall…I think my fav fragment is the one with the boy trying to stab the insect thing:DAnyway thank you for uploading:)

  18. aussieChazz on October 25, 2009 at 3:10 pm

  23. MobzSean1 on October 25, 2009 at 2:53 pm

    Super dope , I had to find ways to get some money so that Two Pretty Lady could be in my bedroom wall ASAP !

  24. girlaloud on October 25, 2009 at 2:49 pm

    Aww .. You’re amazing Mike , even when you are on Doodle time you can produce something so Beautiful like this πŸ˜‰ Congrat !

  25. ShadowerLiltani on October 25, 2009 at 11:59 am

    I’m really in loved with the unhappy cloud with the eyepatch. Do you ever look at your art and murmur to yourself, “This came out of my head…” I’ve done that on numerous occasions. Once thing though, why’d you kill the cute blue snakey wakey! What’d it ever do to you? Ya know, I really wish there was an actual snake in the world that looked like that one, cause that’d make a cute pet. Look, I just woke up a couple hours ago. Humor me.

  26. pepper on October 25, 2009 at 11:07 am

    Haha I love how the robot thing randomly has a bass clef on him lol

  42. DemonNoir99 on October 25, 2009 at 4:40 am

    I like The Lady Characters in that Pic , I think They both have a Magical Beauty , Absolutely Stunning !

  43. Ezza on October 25, 2009 at 3:28 am

    apart from being predominatly purple, my fave thing about ur pic is how its dream-like/ cloud-like and how some of the characters are ghost-like..and a little spooky..it cool πŸ™‚ would u ever make prints of it?

  44. MaryBing on October 25, 2009 at 3:03 am

    Great piece! You never know what’s in the brain of a rock star:)

    I wonder… What are your favorite pieces of other artists?
    (I my opinion Esther Pearl Watson’s, Fons Schiedon’s, James Jean’s, Josh Agle’s and Ray Caesar’s are very interesting and cool)

  45. liope on October 25, 2009 at 2:44 am

    It’s awesome, weird and cute!! ^^ Thanks for putting it up here!! πŸ™‚ Btw seeing all those sketches have you ever thought of making a small cartoon story? A couple of frames for a start and then a small book maybe.. Have you ever try it?

  46. lp_fm_fan on October 24, 2009 at 11:55 pm

Not really…I’m leaving TX at 4pm and getting there at 9pm! when the gallery closes, just my luck. great. XD

    Wow, 8 letters, EXELLENT. But, what’s your True Self???????????? I can’t understand @@!
