This thread is long overdue. Love Mike's work. I began buying his stuff at various Gallery1988 shows, not knowing who he was or even realizing it was by the same artist. I just dug the work. He's getting better and better IMO, and it's great to see his stuff catching on.

These are up in our hallway. We bought 2 Fat Birds this weekend which will go up in the kitchen in the coming week or so.

Was wondering where this thread was. Drove down to SPX just to see Mike and it was oh so worth it. He is good people.

Absolutely! I kind of figured there was one that had been buried or something but to my surprise, there wasn't one. :shock:

Also, I don't if anyone else was a fan of Threadless several years back but I never realized until recently that this one was Mike's design:

This is bad ass. But the prints not evenly spaced throughout would drive me nuts! :lol:
Yeah its annoying heh. When I hung them up I had a terrible fever and it was like 100 degrees inside and miserable. Also, I'm convinced my walls are crooked. Its an old building and I swear the laser level was spot on. Ill fix it ... eventually.

do a database search for Mike Mitchell. Some are as low as 5, and others as high as 75.

Well, as the co-creator... It is my duty to inform you all that there are still a few of his Just Like Us Prints available at Gallery 1988's online store (as well as his Step Brothers pieces). There are some really great ones there; the Doc Ock, Freddie Mercury, Bill Cosby, etc... all at the original price of $30 each.

One more thing... I'm overjoyed that I live in a world where I can have Mr. Show's Bob and David on my wall as their other iconic television personalities:
