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”…

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!
