a.k.a. Mike Hines
I'm a Seattle based artist, musician, activist, organizer and human. I care deeply about building a truly equitable society and try to capture aspects of that in my art and music. I also work in the field of virtual reality and believe that we can do amazing things with technology when it is truly accessible to everyone and when we are using it to solve real problems facing humanity. I hope you find something here that you connect with and please feel free to reach out to me with responses or questions!

Buy Art & Support Causes!
It’s been a long time since I last put a post on the website. The world is dramatically different to say the least. I’ve been trying to find as many ways as possible to contribute to the protests for equity, justice and Black lives. I realized one additional option was to actually get my print[…]
Blue Cone Studios
It’s been a long time since I’ve updated, but one new huge part of my life in the last year has been becoming part of Blue Cone Studios.

First Solo Album (Instrumental)
I finally managed to get through enough full song creation, at least on the instrumental side, to put it together into an album, called Nascent. It’s just on Soundcloud, but is free for download. It is movie/game soundtrack influenced electro stuff. A good amount of influence from 80’s europop and some industrial in there. Hope[…]
Upcoming Art Show
I will be showing some recent and some older work at Cafe Allegro in the University District in Seattle from May 3rd to May 30th. Please stop by if you get a chance! The work is all framed giclee prints of digital paintings.
Too many sites, with too many different focuses. I’m putting all my art, music, writing, games, creations, etc. all in one place! Or…. at the very least, putting links to them all in one place, so I can just give out one website address. Maybe eventually I will actually move the content to my own[…]
