About Mike's Art

Saturday, February 11, 2006

Mike graduated in 1998 with a Bachelor of Arts in Design and Illustration, from the Art Center College of Design and thought that his career would be in art until Linkin Park got signed. Instead Mike used his artistic skills for Linkin Park's album covers (Hybrid Theory EP, Hybrid Theory and Reanimation), merchandise and website. He also designed the CD cover for Styles of Beyond's "2000 Fold" album, and everything for Fort Minor.Otherwise Mike's art can also be seen on his guitars which he often paints on.

He has also taken part in other charity events such as painting a Munny and drawing on a christmas card.

Since his first art show (Diamond Hearts Spades Clubs, 2005) he has been invited to contribute art to other art shows:
