glorious excess merchandise

June 9, 2008

many of you have been asking about prints and merchandise for GLORIOUS EXCESS (BORN). it’s not completely sorted out yet, but what i know so far is the following. as usual, all proceeds go to the michael k. shinoda endowed scholarship at art center college of design

there will be a small book / program, which will feature all the art from the show. it is likely to be 8.5×11″ or smaller (we’re designing it now), on a high quality paper stock, perfect bound. full color, with photos detailing the creation of the pieces and some of my inspirations behind them. the book will likely be between $15 and $25.

there will be 3 skate deck designs, featuring art from the show. they are amazing 4 color skateboard decks. you can skate on them or hang them on your wall…they will be sold for between $50 and $75 each. like last time, there will probably be a discount price if you buy all three.

at the last show, my prints were on stretched canvas, which looked more like a painting and were a little more expensive. this time, i’m doing prints on high quality art paper. these are also very nice, and will look amazing in a frame. price is yet undetermined, but will be more affordable: they will probably not exceed $150.

we may possibly add a t-shirt. keep in mind that all items are highly limited, so keep an eye here on and act fast once they show up.

FYI, there are still books and prints from he last show in the store if you’re interested.

i am planning to offer these three things at the show and here at in about one month.

if you are interested in buying an original painting: the only way to do that is at the show.

  2. rockermeg on June 12, 2008 at 11:48 am

    Cool!! I don’t have much money left after purchasing my Projekt Revolution tickets but I’ll start saving up and hopefully get a booklet,


  3. Ranger111133 on June 12, 2008 at 10:29 am

    quick question mike… many skateboard decks are available? i can’t come to the show but if they were for sale on i would definetly buy one

  4. angelitadivina79 on June 12, 2008 at 2:02 am

    The show sounds interesting. I wish I wasn’t overseas in Kuwait and could attend. I will definitely check out the store afterwards. You artwork is eye popping! I love it!

  5. UNDEEZ on June 11, 2008 at 2:58 pm

  6. ShadowerLiltani on June 11, 2008 at 8:50 am

    Have you ever sold a piece and regretted it afterwards?

  7. zimminator on June 10, 2008 at 9:00 pm

    im getting the book fo sho!!!!!!!!

  8. SergSlim on June 10, 2008 at 1:49 pm

    PLEASE don’t sell it just on bandmerch!!!!! PLEASE!! MIKE, I BEG YOU!
    They have CRAZY Shipment payments. And after that I have to pay clearance fee also.
    Delivery will cost same as the book itself or even twice more expensive!!!! + clearance fee….

    You’d better sell it on Amazon somehow, or whatever. But don’t do it on BANDMERCH!!!!!

  9. Madlen on June 10, 2008 at 11:06 am

    Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy at least i can try to buy the book:Dhaha I just have to save some money:DI would love to have a skate deck too though..hmmmm i gotta save more money:D

  11. maria on June 10, 2008 at 10:00 am

    that’s great Mike. I wish you good luck with it. sorry about the lack of an impressionism in my words.

  12. pbizkit33 on June 10, 2008 at 6:29 am

    Thanks for the info MIke, will definitely be getting a program and maybe one of the prints. Hopefully get a M&G to have you sign them.

  13. relieff on June 10, 2008 at 5:13 am

    how d’you like guys this drawring?

  14. boringrockstar on June 10, 2008 at 5:05 am

    Hell yeah!! New skate decks..last time I was to slow-.- This time ,I’m sure I’ll get one of them.I’m just hoping that the shipping costs won’t be that high.I mean Germany is not that close to Amerika … ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. aplacetorest on June 10, 2008 at 4:45 am

    I cant wait for these to be released. I will def. buy one! PROMISE. And if i find one i REALLY like, i’ll get it tattoo’d on my other arm, its feelin a little lonely compared to my left arm haha.

    Diamonds Spades Hearts and Clubs – i got the Fort Minor artwork tatted on my left arm man. As a thank you, to you, for makin such great music, and helpin me through all lifes bullshit. ๐Ÿ™‚

    heres to you

  16. CHESTNUTX92 on June 10, 2008 at 3:16 am

    Mike, will the merchandise sold on BandMerch? All the best to your “Glorious Excess (Born)” art show! =)

  17. Alba_Tramonto on June 10, 2008 at 2:28 am

    You hate flooding?

    Wonderfully! I guess, Mike knows, to what country he should arrive!

    A reminder: Ukraine waits Linkin Park!!!!!!!!!!

  18. bec on June 10, 2008 at 2:10 am

    Mike, I have the ‘Diamonds, Spades, Hearts & Clubs’ art book thing and I’m sure it’s lovely but I can’t get it out of the surrounding card packet. I don’t want to cut it open as that part is rather pretty and no amount of shaking it works – is there a trick to it?
    I’ve even tried pulling it with BBQ tongues!
    It’s too tight!!!!

  19. yun on June 10, 2008 at 1:48 am

    It’s NOT fairrrrrrrrrrrrrrr รง_รง I want to buy one but I’m in this far away Italy T__T This time I could even manage to buy one, since that they’re cheaper, but I can’t! You are being cruel Mike. I can’t come to L.A. it’s definitely too expensive for my budget now. Just coming to Venice for the Heineken Jammin Festival (from Rome) is about 100euros, plus the ticket (so, please, tell the tourmanagers to come to che capital). Anyway, if you say there is no way to buy the paintings online, 1) I’ll be veeery sad and a bit angry with you 2) I’ll surely buy the t-shirt and wear it with PRIDE! < 3

  20. alxnilam on June 10, 2008 at 1:36 am

    Ok, so this is not related to the blog post. I was just wondering if you guys ever get uncomfortable during M&Gs? Cause I get it, you want to meet your fans, and etc, and that’s great, but the whole situation is just… creepy. I mean, how do you feel when the whole bunch of people stares at you like you’re a piece of meat, and the most important thing for them is to touch you? Don’t you ever get creeps? I kniow i would ^^

  21. Linkin_Paranoik on June 10, 2008 at 1:07 am

    Hey Mike! OMG! you always make amazing arts, i love your style, you rock!!
    I love you.


  22. toikey on June 10, 2008 at 12:53 am

    I’ll definitely get my hands on atleast one thing, for sure.

    I’m in love with Mike’s art.

    Just… I live in the UK so.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  23. sassi_lp on June 10, 2008 at 12:48 am

    excellent:0 keep it up!

    ABOUT PROJECT REV. EUROPE-> are busta and christ cornell also coming to the Berlin show?
    Unfortunately it is pretty unclear who’s coming to the show…I know of NERD and HIM and that’s it.
    Looking forward fto the show on the 27th!!! see ya:)

  24. Fishgoingwest on June 10, 2008 at 12:43 am

    Fogot to say thanks.

    It’s very kind of you to always keep us informed of what you are going to do.

  25. Fishgoingwest on June 10, 2008 at 12:41 am

    Books,Skate Decks,Prints!They are all awesome items!!

    I wish I could buy them,but unfortunately there’s no FedEx in this area I am living,everytime I booked something in the MikeShinoda store or the LP store here,and they sent package out,1 day later I would find online that FedEx couldn’t reach my area so they sent the package back to the shipper.

    Really hope I could have a chance to pay for the items I want.

  27. cDizzle185 on June 10, 2008 at 12:05 am

    MIKE PLEASE THIS BAND NEEDS HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




  28. soyuneik on June 10, 2008 at 12:04 am

    Man. so someone has SHH? ::dies:: Oh, well maybe I can hunt that person down….lol.
    I think I said it before.. I plan on being there, but disappointments tend to be a typical theme in my life.
    However, it has been officially decided that I’m moving to California within the next year. So if I miss this, I most def won’t the next. If I actually have a chance to converse with you, don’t be weirded out since I’m not as radical as it may seem. haha.
    I’m not gonna be all “OMFG Mike Shinoda!” or anything, but I will introduce myself with the same respect as would anyone else.

  29. Kostas on June 9, 2008 at 11:57 pm

    Ha… hey, Mike. did you know that the first clans of human beings back then were actually hunters? No? Well, I didn’t either. You know why? Cause I don’t give a shit about university. Ok, I mean… it’s interesting and all, but the way it works. :-p Dammit, I so wanna do that things you ppl do. :-/ I think those skateboard things will look cool, just like the shoes or sth. But why limited, man? Anyway… it’s not like i’m getting any from where I live :’-p. I feel like I’m left behind or sth, lol. Anyway. If you have some spare time watch that one… ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. sage_murry on June 9, 2008 at 11:41 pm

    Ugh. . . .I shouldn’t have read this information. Cause now having the knowledge of possible prints is no good for my wallet. I’m already (hopefully) flying from Kansas to LA to see your show. I’m already buying tickets to the Bonner Springs show (it’s three hours from Hays, how could I say no? And thanks for giving KS some love =) Dorothy and Toto appreciate it.) after the parentals gave me this huge lecture on being responsible and saving money. But I figure why the hell not? It’s only once in a lifetime chance might as well grab the bull by the balls. . . . . . . . I’m gonna be in so much debt cause of you guys, you know that right? Just thought I’d let you know.

  31. crystalrussianla on June 9, 2008 at 11:29 pm

  32. YourConscience on June 9, 2008 at 10:02 pm

    Ooooh, thanks so much! I’ve been anticipating more about the art show. It’s awesome to know that little things will be avaliable for those of us on budgets… =) Oh, and I checked out the JANM site; it says it’s $8 per adult, but that’s on a regular night, right? What about “open doors” on the 11th? o.0 Anyhow, thanks for the update. I hope you guys are having fun overseas. =) Oh, yeah… And P.S. I thought in one of your initail posts about the MS/DC remix shoes, you said it’d be avaliable on July 1st, but more recently you said you hope it’ll be out early enough to be featured at the show, which is the middle of the month… o.0 [shrugs] Take care hun. =)

  33. ms_shock on June 9, 2008 at 9:05 pm

    as for me even if I could I don’t buy your skate desks. Because i could erase picture dy using. ๐Ÿ˜„ But Skateboard with your designe is VERY good….

  34. shinoda_me on June 9, 2008 at 8:32 pm

    i want to buy :((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((

  35. analoggirl on June 9, 2008 at 8:29 pm

    Thanks for issuing an art book/program! I’ll be sure to pick one up. ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. nillp on June 9, 2008 at 8:21 pm

    “if you are interested in buying an original painting: the only way to do that is at the show.”

    this is definitively the worst thing EVER.. i still think u should go around US with ur show..

    i can’t wait to “see” all the things u’ve been working on, anyways.

    take care; keep informing us. ๐Ÿ˜€

    love ya ~ mk’nil โ™ฅ

  37. Jhuryn on June 9, 2008 at 6:44 pm

    yay, I love the books and prints. Thanks for the info. Can’t wait.

  38. DaniShinoda on June 9, 2008 at 6:42 pm


    And about the last LP concerts on Europe. I watched Rock in Rio by streamig video (in the real time) and I liked, was a great show. I really would like this show was in my country, Brazil. (Because Rio is in Brazil, you agree, right?) ha! We’re waiting you this year here. Finally, have good travels, good start on the Glorious Excess (Born) and good show in Lithuania tomorrow!

    Take care!

  39. DaniShinoda on June 9, 2008 at 6:42 pm

    About this post and before:
    I cant wait for the day and more pictures for your art show! Is coming!
    I think that this art of diamond skull is so awesome, but in the same time is so expensive, only people from high society will can buy. But I htink you are right in the aspect of comerciate things we can buy to keeping help people. This is the difference!
    And about the song No Roads Left. I cant’ lie and say that I dont want to see you singing live, cause I love it so much and this became my dream, but you cant hurt your voice health, cause we cannot live without your raps! If wont kill your voice play for us, it can be just one time. ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. JayRod13 on June 9, 2008 at 6:01 pm

    Hey Mike,

    Art question for you. I remember seeing online that you drew a certain Munny figure. Was wondering what type of paint you used? Look foward to see you at the art show.

  41. Adam on June 9, 2008 at 6:00 pm

    Wow, I’ll be sure to buy the art book when it comes out! awesome…
    and Mike, i know this is offtopic, but do you know the “setlist W” thats floating around the forums, can you confirm if its real or not?
    Thanks, Adam

  42. Linkinminor_k on June 9, 2008 at 5:57 pm

    I thought of a good idea you should make a skatedeck,DC’s,shirt,and hat all matching…it would be cool as hell.Well anyway I was doing a thing in school for famous artist and I really did not know any and you(mike) saved my butt.I also hope they sell those DC’s at other stores besides the “DC shoe store”.

    also if you are in the LPU- look at this:
    if you are not in the LPU- -“Wake/Given Up” -What ive done

    Yup thats my 4 yr old bro singing lp

  43. Shadowfax1007 on June 9, 2008 at 5:54 pm

    hey mike,

    quick art question for you.
    In the lastest LPTV video (the US tour), it shows the people working the MFR booths before the LP shows.
    On a poster it shows at 3:39 that what appears to be the Entities t-shirt, but it also shows what looks like a Persona Non Grata t-shirt.

    I was just wondering if that Persona Non Grata t-shirt will ever be up for sale on your site? I’m a huge fan of that piece.


  44. lp_fm_fan on June 9, 2008 at 5:38 pm

    I will definitely buy SOMETHING. I dunno what, but I’ll buy something to treasure the memory.

  45. KATHYxx on June 9, 2008 at 5:22 pm

    The art book has all the art this time!?
    I like that very much. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Last time i noticed in photos some paintings that were not in the last book.. made me sad because your art show is at least an 8 hour drive and i can’t really see the art that’s not in the book ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Oh and a print sounds so nice. I’ve always wanted one and the price makes it much better ๐Ÿ™‚

  46. murry on June 9, 2008 at 5:13 pm

    I’m still paying off the last print of yours I bought, so it’s good to hear that these will be less expensive. Although, I cherish the one I own. It’s been a real conversation piece in my house. Which was a problem when I hung it next to my roommate’s art and hers got no attention.

    Anyway, it was totally worth the credit card bill, and I’ll be on the lookout for the new prints.

  47. lynndarwinharris on June 9, 2008 at 4:59 pm

    I can’t wait to purchase! I can’t go to the show, so this is the next best thing! Thanks Mike and let us know exactly when they go on sell!! I agree with CYN_DARTHYAK have an art show on the east coast, that would be awesome! Atlanta and New York would be nice! LDH

  48. Anstice on June 9, 2008 at 4:50 pm

    When you say a t-shirt, do you mean that it’s just going to have the words “Mike Shinoda – Glorious Excess (Born)” on it, or are you going to choose a piece of art to print onto the t-shirt as well? Because that would be really neat.

  49. Cyn_DarthYak on June 9, 2008 at 4:37 pm

    Awesome. I’m glad that you’re finding cost effective ways of making your art more available to the fans. Now if only you could do the show on the east coast cough cough … like maybe new york. cough cough cough Or somewhere in coughPENNSYLVANIAcough

  50. vdo21 on June 9, 2008 at 4:28 pm

    sounds awesome, i can’t wait to get some merch.
