Artist/Painter MIKE LEARN Takes On Heavy Metal Project With BENEDICTUM

Mike Learn, well known for his extensive work in the custom motorcycle, art and music industries, is creating the cover art for BENEDICTUM's upcoming album.

Specializing in original art creations with a unique style and hard edge, Mike has put out some of the most eye-catching artwork in the American counter culture to date. His artwork can be seen on Jackson and Charvel custom shop and NAMM guitars, MEGADETH album covers and tour art and on high-end custom motorcycles across the world.

As a treat to fans across several industries, this commission will be completed live on Mike's web cam. There are also several other promotions in the works for this exciting project.

Mike started airbrushing at the age of 12, painting his friends' cars, guitars and motorcycles. After college and a brief career as a musician, he re-connected with his passion for the airbrush by bringing his talent to the custom motorcycle industry in 1992. In 2002, Mike Learn Airbrush & Design was founded and Mike expanded his market reach to the music industry creating album art, custom instruments and high-end finishes for FMIC and other instrument manufacturers. Since his Easyriders publication debut in 1989, examples of Mike's artwork have been seen in hundreds of car, truck, bike and music enthusiast magazines around the world.
