Q: “Mike, why haven’t you put any new art links up on your blog lately?”
A: “Because there hasn’t been a lot of stuff that’s caught my eye…until I saw the new work by VAHGE at 99%Gallery.  Really dope.”

  7. cincybmxlpfreak on June 28, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    Haha. That’s awesome. I’m pretty sure the first pic is supposed to be Lady Gaga.😛

    Mike, why haven’t you made a video chat in SIX WEEKS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! We are there every day and every night just because of you. And what is with the flickers of your screen name in Ustream? I am the only one in there who can see when you pop in and out. All I’m asking for is a chat on Ustream, and maybe if you have time, a video chat.

    Best regards!

  9. Kelley on June 28, 2010 at 10:25 am

  17. ALAN on June 28, 2010 at 5:14 am

    WTF MIKE ! :O IM SCARED

  18. orionwong on June 28, 2010 at 4:36 am

    Hey Mike, I was inspired by an awesome painter – Wu Guanzhong. His paintings are sooo beautiful and are painted with heart. The stories behind the paints are really impressive. Check it out mike. I’m sure you’ll love it. My favorite is the “Two Swallow”. It’s about the homesick feeling of Wu during chinese inner war. Maybe you’ll get some inspiration from it also. =)

  19. Sandro Bourdon on June 28, 2010 at 4:13 am

    it’s so …. i don’t know :s HHAHHAHHAHA

  20. Itchy on June 28, 2010 at 4:13 am

  23. linkinparkbelgiummanager on June 28, 2010 at 3:05 am

  24. Nogo on June 28, 2010 at 2:19 am

  27. Fatima on June 28, 2010 at 12:27 am

    it’s very cool…
    thanks for sharing Mike!

  28. SpikeGlueDymaxx on June 27, 2010 at 11:37 pm

    I dont think these are dope. Me, I love art. But I love manga and anime. I know not much about art, tho. I draw alot btw. I love drawing. But for kind stuff like that pics above, Im abit confused. Im 11 and I need to find the right definition of art. Not only the opinions of kids in age like me, but also adults example You. Thanks for sharing, Mike.

  29. brincibrigi. on June 27, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    woooow O: that’s awesome. really cool!

  30. Sofisofi on June 27, 2010 at 11:12 pm

    It’s awesome, isn’t it? Keep posting the art you like, I love it🙂
    Why don’t you put some more music that you like? You don’t do it very often

  31. zahralp on June 27, 2010 at 10:32 pm

    evaoba commented about ur Alice in Wonderland painting !??!? ummmm i really would like to see that one !!!
    creepy suburbs of Maryland ??! cool…. i like her way of art!!!!!

  32. Olla Chaz on June 27, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    Mike, it would be very nice of you if you also give your comment ( a little review, maybe?) on every art that you post.

    I think those pieces are great, but I’m not really into that genre of art, so it’s pretty hard for me to understand them. Your comment would help a lot. Besides, we need to know a true artist’s opinion, don’t we?🙂

    Thanks for sharing, M.

  33. Tejas on June 27, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    Nice !!!🙂

  34. Moepi on June 27, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    remembers me a little bit of max ernst🙂
    hm…confusing

  35. Valery on June 27, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    Um..
    It’s beautiful
    Also it’s awful
    You’re right, it is dope

  36. Rahul LP on June 27, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    this is just a shot in the dark , i feel that the reason for posting this is to imply that lp is done with 99 percent of the album process

  37. Shinoda Twin™ on June 27, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    I thought this was very unique as well, some people don’t understand the meaning in the the art. It’s not just a picture/artwork there’s also a story behind it. Thanks for sharing this Mike. :]

  38. widya rahayu on June 27, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    i like the color scheme esp. on the 1st & 2nd artwork. Lots of stuff but looks.. lonely. Thank you for sharing this. Thought my works were not your taste but now i know i should’ve not put any judges on you..

  39. vishnu on June 27, 2010 at 8:21 pm

  40. Wulan B'dellian on June 27, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    those arts r strangely beautiful,,i like it,but not my taste🙂

  41. Shugah Colby on June 27, 2010 at 7:19 pm

    Its very original and dope. Ive been trying to find this sick painting that i saw about a year ago. Its kind of like these. Ive been trying to find it so i can show you. Figured you’d like it. But cant find it. Will keep searching.🙂

  42. EvoOba on June 27, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    Weird and awesome at the same time. The third one looks pretty dope to me…Thx for sharing Mike🙂 Btw how is that Alice in Wonderland painting going?

  43. Martha on June 27, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    I was just looking at Ian Francis, & Stephanie Lee Jackson before I got on here. This is pretty cool, but it’s not my taste… I guess you could say.

  44. ammy aybar on June 27, 2010 at 6:12 pm

    its beautiful and original!!

  45. jes on June 27, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    Um… OK.

    Does nothing for me. Not amused.

  46. Moridin on June 27, 2010 at 5:44 pm

    I really don’t know why, but the first one reminds me of Cameron Diaz.

  47. CamiLPKeane on June 27, 2010 at 5:20 pm

    Hahahah WTF!! is very FUNNY!! LOL

  48. Rocket_Skates on June 27, 2010 at 5:10 pm

    Hahaa funny…

  49. M4LL0RY on June 27, 2010 at 5:03 pm

    I like..I like.

  50. betty_lp on June 27, 2010 at 4:56 pm

    This is… interesting.
    It doesn’t really do it for me, though.
    It’s not really my taste.

  51. Marissa on June 27, 2010 at 4:33 pm

    Interesting art!
    Haha, 99% is reminding me of the song “Remember the Name”. 😉

  52. dani on June 27, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    mmm interesante…

  53. Alex on June 27, 2010 at 4:16 pm

    it gives me goose bumps =(

  54. nillp on June 27, 2010 at 4:02 pm

    “99% perspiration, 1% inspiration” haha’
    i liked this art.. reminded me of mark ryden for a second.
    talking about art, what about you? working on something new or you’re only working with the new album? have a great week and hope to have more LP news.. :B ps:106 days only! *-*

  55. Alessandra on June 27, 2010 at 3:59 pm

    The first image it’s a mix of Britney Spears,lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera with Marilyn Manson *O*

  56. GreekLegend on June 27, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    Man I don’t know, this “art” is very confusing. Human skeletons wearing Armani and horse-headed women with armors sitting on the bed?? That is..somewhat.

  57. Owar on June 27, 2010 at 3:48 pm

    ¡Que frito, amigo!, ¡Bien!

  58. Teo on June 27, 2010 at 3:43 pm

    question: when are you planing to broadcast on Ustream? we miss you guys!!!

  59. Dri on June 27, 2010 at 3:40 pm

    Mike, very nice these works of art!

  60. Thales on June 27, 2010 at 3:39 pm

    lol, dorgas, very cool !

  61. Nessa on June 27, 2010 at 3:36 pm

    I would really like to be next to you when you look at such a piece of art. I would like to know what you see or interprete.

  62. ibe on June 27, 2010 at 3:36 pm

    LOL
    second picture😀

  63. STINGER_LP on June 27, 2010 at 3:35 pm

    Hmm, pretty strange photos. Author probably put a deep sense in it that I apparently don’t understand…

  64. Diego on June 27, 2010 at 3:35 pm

    Crazy

  65. Daniele on June 27, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    Those are fantastic! Great art! I hope we can have awesome arts in SWU Brazil too.

  66. tamara soria on June 27, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    I love the things you do mike I love the talent you have, which makes it able to handle well, and I like you, follow so we’ll always support from Argentina

  67. Alexandra Nofi on June 27, 2010 at 3:33 pm

    Well this is new! I rather like it. Normally I’m not always big on collages, but I like this a lot.

    Yeah, I know, for once I actually like someone’s art that you post up here. We just have different tastes, that’s all🙂

    Did you see my message on LPN about “Hands Across the Sand”? I wonder if it’s something Music for Relief would be willing to get involved with, if that’s possible.

  68. JustBiteMe9 on June 27, 2010 at 3:32 pm

    That’s crazy… I like the first one a lot, but they look quite disturbing, I blame the birds, I don’t like pidgeons.

  69. Zara on June 27, 2010 at 3:32 pm

    Wow, thats some distinctive stuff. I dont think Ive seen pieces of brick in art like that. I want to see the Barbie house she made.

  70. TheGlueLpFan on June 27, 2010 at 3:32 pm

    For some reason at first I thought this was a man…until I saw the text on the side.That woman is pretty visionary I have to say.This is some of the best art I’ve seen in a while and in a weird way it reminds me of the way I think and write about stuff…weird😀

  71. kelly on June 27, 2010 at 3:31 pm

    lol i hope not, kathy

  72. Shugah Colby on June 27, 2010 at 3:31 pm

    Wow. really sick. I really like it.

  73. Maria on June 27, 2010 at 3:29 pm

    Wow (in a good way)

  74. KATHYxx on June 27, 2010 at 3:29 pm

    OOooo decently done collage!

    “Painstakingly assembled by hand from small pieces of magazine, cut and adhered with glue, pieces of eye, ”

    wait. pieces of eye????? Owww.

  75. Sara Bee on June 27, 2010 at 3:28 pm

    they’re awsome!

  76. Andressa Peron on June 27, 2010 at 3:28 pm

    Nice, heh

  77. Julien-K Arg on June 27, 2010 at 3:27 pm
