That's just silly..

Don't really think Pollock cares or is worried..

Bottom line, the band usually does not hire lot artist that have been profiting of them for years..

This has been discussed in length and responded by AJ..

The way for him to do an official gig is to start doing other official gigs that he can get, which he appears to be doing..

Bottom line tho, hard to imagine phish callin up a lot artist to give him even more notarioty with the un-official prints..

I love AJ's work, and would love the call up, but think about what's going on seriously, and who else they hire..

just my $.02

Pollock caring about AJ's designs is absolutely hilarious...Jim is such a nice carefree guy, if it wasn't for his friends showing him the AJ's he would never even see them...and onestepahead he certainly isn't intimidated by them trust me...

Far Superior to anything Pollock has done.. :lol: wait your serious aren't you?? AJ does GREAT work, but far superior I think not. Pollock has done some of the best and most iconic Phish stuff there is if you ask me... There are also many people who would argue your AJ vs Pollock Halloween sentiment, me included.

IMO Phish will NEVER use AJ because they would be legitimizing his past work to some degree which we all know they don't want to do...Sucks because I would LOVE to see those 5 letters at the top of an AJ print, I just don't think it will ever happen, but for good reasons (See the quote below)...

It may be a parasitic relationship; but it is not one that's detrimental to Phish.
The fan-artists are not profiting off of Phish per se, only on the frenzy/following they create... and which Phish does not control.
Doesn't mean they should hire the guy...but it would be very cool if they did.

Anyhow- I like Masthay. Very vivid stuff.
just a foil for me today, thanks
