From AJ Masthay:
The rapture is upon us!
Okay, maybe not, but new years at MSG is pretty close to the rapture for many fans…. This years edition marks a first for Masthay Studios, yup it’s a quadtych. Four individual prints that when combined create one large image. New years prints are somewhat of a tradition for me, going all the way back to the 2002 hiatus return at MSG. Last year, I documented the printing process of the MSG triptych on a thread on phishposters.com – so why not continue that tradition and document the quads!
I’ll be regularly updating the new Masthay Studios Blog with photos and commentary on the printing process along with a wonderful introduction by Mr. Miner of Mr. Miner’s Phish Thoughts. For those that decide to purchase the set, you’ll be able to follow along and literally watch your prints being made from start to finish. Looking for more dirt on this edition? Mr. Miner asked me a few questions about my creation process, the interview is up now on PhishThoughts.com.
Now I hope you’re asking, “How do I purchase these wonderful prints?”. Well, I’ll tell you…
These eight color linoleum block prints are from an edition of 150 sets and are printed on archival quality Canson Edition paper stock. All prints will be available on MasthayStudios.com this Friday, November 18th, at 12 noon EST.
If you happen to be traveling to the City for the shows, please join myself and Mr. Miner for two very special events on December 29th. The first is a book signing and the second is an aftershow party. Both are taking place at The Irish Times – 254 W 31st St. (b/w 7th and 8th Ave), less than 1 block from MSG!
The Book Signing: 4 pm – 6 pm
The Afterparty w/ Coltrane and Friends: Post-show – 3 am – FREE!

As always feel free to email me email@example.com with any questions, concerns, comments, etc. See ya at MSG!
*Please note, the above image is of the preliminary sketches for the prints. Production of the final prints is currently underway and can be followed in my blog. While the sketches are a close approximation, the final prints will have differences in appearance and color to what is show above. I estimate having all prints shipped out prior to the new year’s shows.
