The 2012 JDub Allstars shirt collection is here, ready for Summer tour, although some dates would be nice…

Angry Birds of a Feather Pin 2.0

Based on a 2010 lot shirt idea by Chuck Hoffman and designed by Jiggs, this Birds of a Feather pin features 9 colors, multiple cutouts, and a curved slider. The 1.5″ pin features silver metal as the background, and is double posted. This pin is released in a numbered series of 100 and will not be re-released. This 2.0 version is a correction from the first version, in which most of the run was misprinted. Pins in the 1-50 series will be available through Jiggs Lot, and pins 51-100 will be available from Chuck Hoffman.

Pins are $20 each including shipping and are available through Jiggs

Masthay Studios 2.0 is Live!

It’s been a long time in the making, but she’s live! Masthay Studios 2.0 went live just a short time ago and features a brand new archive, blog and shopping cart. I couldn’t be happier with the way the site has turned out and have to give a huge thank you to Keller Web Solutions for putting the whole thing together.

To celebrate I’m testing out one of the brand nbew features of the shopping cart and am offering up a 20% off your entire cart coupon, use the code “MASTHAY2.0” on checkout. The code is good through the 17th and will work on everything in the store – including new releases and original sketches!

Speaking of new release – three new prints will be available tomorrow Feb 13th at 12 noon EST. The first two are official prints for the Umphrey’s McGee shows this past weekend at The House of Blues, Boston and The Electric Factory in Philly. The third print is for Marco Benevento and also took place this weekend at Kendall’s Pub in Yorkville, IL. Check out the new web store for more information on these pieces.

Hope you enjoy the new site, I welcome any feedback or comments you may have.
As always, thanks for supporting the arts and I hope to see you sometime this summer (fingers crossed for some dates soon!)


Surrender to the Flow Magazine launches Kickstarter drive

Surrender to the Flow published their first issue in the Fall of 1998 for Phish tour and has continued to be a staple of tour ever since. From the tours of 1.0, Oysterhead in 2001 and a whopping SIX issues in 2009, totaling 14 issues total in 3.0 and 33 issues over the past 14 years, Surrender to the Flow is the best information you can get on lot, with great articles, stories and info that fans need while on the road.
STTF has grown to publishing 8,000+ copies per tour and is run masterfully by Christy Articola as editor, working with an all volunteer staff made up of members from the Phish community. Christy plans to keep publishing Surrender as long as the band keeps playing!

In an effort to digitize all past copies of Surrender to the Flow, Christy has found a fantastic digital magazine software called 3D Issue. Through a onetime purchase of the software, Surrender to the Flow will be able to feature pdf’s of all issues, including new issues as well. A hosting site is already secured so the next step is raising the money for the cost of 3D Issue.

A Kickstarter campaign has started so that Phish fans can support Surrender to the Flow’s digitizing effort and like with all Kickstarter drives, you can get some great benefits in return!

Three year anniversary of PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish

Three years ago today a party was held in Troy, NY to celebrate the publication of a most unique book, PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish. The night started with a dinner for friends, artists and family before heading next door to Revolution Hall (RIP) for the party. With a semi-brief* intro about the book from the author, The McLovins debuted in New York followed by Long Island’s own The Flow performing two sets of Phish covers.

The night was four and a half years in the making, starting shortly after Coventry. That night we sold 1/5 of the first printing (250) and started what would lead to over $5800 in donations for The Mockingbird Foundation through Today PhanArt is donating $500 from the sale of the book and will donate another another $500 with the sale of the final copies of PhanArt. The first edition will not be reprinted, although it is available for sale as an ebook for Kindle, iPad and Nook and soon will be available for the Sony Tablet.

Check out a slideshow of pictures of the book here

The future of PhanArt is bright, with the first printing remaining as an ebook, with all profits from the sale benefiting The Mockingbird Foundation. Later this year, PhanArt: 2009 will feature all the art from the first year of the return of Phish, as well as interviews and articles on the Phish community in the ‘3.0’ era. This edition will be designed by Josh Jacobs, adding graphic design experience to the layout and design of PhanArt. Yearly editions of PhanArtwill be created to compile the art which makes the Phish community so unique.

If you would like to pick up one of the final 5 books, get one here. Thank you all for your continued support of PhanArt and support for ALL the artists who’s creativity went into the book and is featured on the website. PhanArt will continue its mission to compile and preserve art created by Phish fans for the Phish community and in the course of such work, to also benefit The Mockingbird Foundation, raising funds for music education.

Coming soon, there will be a new way to donate to The Mockingbird Foundation through PhanArt. Stay tuned for details
