Hello World! Coming to you semi-live from lovely West Hartford, CT. It’s been an interesting fall to say the least, what with a hurricane and Nor-easter in a weeks time… We were very lucky in central CT with nothing more than a cable outage and a few inches of snow to deal with, but our hearts go out to the millions along the coast who are still recovering from Sandy. Stay strong NYC & Jersey!
Okay, so I’m writing to you to let you know about my upcoming prints for the 4 nights at MSG for the New Years run. Yup, it’s a Quad and what a Quad it is! Keeping with what is now a Masthay Studios tradition, I am releasing the images of the sketches early and will be Tweeting/Facebooking the entire printing process in full graphic detail so those of you that purchase can follow along and literally watch you prints being made. If you haven’t done so already, be sure to “Like” Masthay Studios on facebook, www.facebook.com/masthaystudios, and follow us on Twitter, twitter.com/ajmasthay as Ill be posting different content to each. So, with all that said, I humbly present “The Terminal”…
8 color linoleum block print (10 colors total with 2 mixed on the print). Signed, Numbered Edition of 125 sets
Each print is 14″ x 23″ for an overall dimension of 56″x23
$125 per set – available this Friday, November 16th, at 12 noon EST
Again, the image above is the preliminary pastel sketch and you can follow the progression of the actual prints on our social media outlets. All prints are guaranteed to arrive prior to Dec 25th so don’t hesitate to pick one up for the Phanatic on you Xmas list!
Want to learn more about the concept and theme behind this quadtych? I recently sat down with Dave Calarco from Mr. Miner’s Phish Thoughts for a little Q&A about this set and a busy 2012 for Masthay Studios. Check out the interview at PhishThoughts.com.
In other Masthay Studios news, be sure to check out the upcoming Blunt Fink group show being hosted by the wonderful folks at Blunt Graffix in Eugene, OR. It’s shaping up to be an amazing conglomeration of artists, each of which creating a mash up of movie themes in the style of the one and only Big Daddy Ed Roth. I can’t say what my theme is yet, but it involves motorcycles and a twisted trip to Mardi Gras…. Finally, I’ll mention an incredibly exciting collaboration print that Im in the midst of. Stay tuned for more info on this one, but to say that I’m excited is a major understatement.
As always, thank you so much for supporting my work and the arts in general. It’s been an awesome year and the future is shaping up to be incredibly exciting. Stay well and stay safe and I hope to see you in the City this NYE!
From AJ Masthay: Sixteen Years of Raging in the Garden! First off, thank you to everyone who has been following along with the progress of the MSG Rapture sets on my new blog. I’m pleased to report that they moved along at a faster clip than expected and will begin to ship later this week. Because they progressed so quickly I’m also pleased to report that I have time to take on a project that’s been brewing in my little mind since last years NYE festivities – MSG Totems.
These totems celebrate the six new years dates (past and present) at the Garden, going all the way back to 1995 with classic imagery from each year along with the iconic Grand Central clock about to strike midnight on NYE. Each panel will measure approximately 6.5″ x 23.5″ and consist of 7 colors. Totems are meant to be viewed alone, or as additional panels for the MSG Rapture acting as “bookends” for the quadtych (does that make it a sextych? How naughty…) Edition size will be 150 and all prints will be available on my store website this Friday, December 9th at 12 noon EST*.
A few more announcements from AJ:
I am incredibly excited about the upcoming release of a collaboration between myself and the insanely talented David Welker. The collab has been in the works for some time and we hope to have them completed prior to the holidays. We’re still working out the details but so far we have it narrowed down to a silk-screened edition of 60 prints. What’s the theme? As David put it, “Think Flemish Pre-Renaissance Doom. Perfect for this Holiday Season.” Yup, it’s going to be dark… love it. Stay tuned for more details on how to get one of these very exclusive pieces.
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! I’ll be bringing some of the prints from the Mr. Miner book cover and will have them available at a discount rate. Here’s the details: The Book Signing: 4 pm – 6 pm The Afterparty w/ Coltrane and Friends: Post-show – 3 am – FREE! View more details… One last thing, my annual Holiday Sale is still going strong. Deep deep discounts on past editions. Some have already sold out and others are very close to be gone forever. Check them out at Masthaystudios.com.
In collaboration with Phro at Taboot Art, I am pleased to announce my first foray into Phish fan posters. Based on a solid concept from my good friend Phro, I created this poster around his cuckoo clock theme. This one had a great deal of back and forth until we hammered out the final image. I can easily say this is the most work I have put into a design before. The final image ended up turning out great.
The poster will be a 10 x 18 size, and at the time of this pre-order post, should be at least 8 colors (the colors represented here will be as close as possible, but as with any printing process, there will be some room for adjustment). The design will be screen printed on 100 stock water color paper. The posters will be shipped via a Uline poster tube, wrapped in artists paper, and will go out Priority Mail. There will only be 200 of this run.
The pre-order features a discounted price of 20 dollars, plus 10 dollars shipping (reg price will be 25 plus shipping). This pre-order will end on Wednesday, November 30th.
Please send $30 for each poster you would like (pre-order price and shipping) to firstname.lastname@example.org with JIGGS/PHRO NYE POSTER in the subject, or email him directly at the email address listed.
Commemorate the MSG run this New Years with a new spin on the classic NYC Subway logo. Love the ph? Love New York? Boom.

Glowstick Wars is having a New Years Eve ticket giveaway contest, additional details can be found at the event page. The ticket is a mail order with a seat in section 105 for 12/31/11. There is NO PURCHASE NECESSARY and only one Facebook entry per person and one Twitter entry per person. Contestants can increase their chances of winning by buying a tube of glowsticks – one “name in the hat” for every tube purchased – or by submitting a video entry to Glowstickwars.com – one “name in the hat” for the submission, plus one extra name in the hat for every 5 Likes the video gets. The video with the most likes by the end of the contest on November 30th gets an extra 5 entries.
A new idea to kick off the New Years Run is a Pre-Show Glowstick War When the lights go down on 12/28/11, the glowsticks start flying! A first of its kind addition to the awesome run of shows ahead of us.
For fans looking to pick up some glowsticks to bring the MSG, Glowstickward.com has made a few discounts available to fans through their store
Going with a few friends for the show and want to have a little fun on this run? Get a 10% discount AND free shipping on 5+ tubes. Use promo code: 5PHISHNY
Wanna get CRAZY and split some tubes with a bunch of friends? $150 cases of Show Sticks included shipping. 25 tubes of 100 sticks each. That’s 2,500 glowies! Promo code: 25PHISHNY
Glowstickwars.com is also going to be “donating” 5 glowsticks to every person that joins the page. 2000 people, for example, = 100 tubes. They will donate up to 125 tubes, a shitload of glowies!! Their plan is to hand these out outside MSG on 12/28 as people go inside the show. With 5 sticks per person and a little flier reminding them about the pre-show GSW, the first night of the run is definitely going to be the one of the brightest indoor shows ever!
