well, kinda bummed right now. I was emailing gb back and forth and finally we landed on him saying he'd email me tomorrow (which wouldve been yesterday) and I can just pay him not through the store, and I can take my time on payment, etc. Basically, he was hooking me up really really nicely, doing something he totally didn't have to do. But now, it seems as if he forgot and they ran out of Patricks.  :(

Yeah I'm definitely buying a shelf for em.

And yes, he is a super nice guy. I sent him an email back and pretty much praised him, and told him he and MMJ go together like pb&j. He might be spooked by me. Stoked to have these though!

I bought these guys when they were first shown at the gallery in Portland.  They have been sitting on a shelf in my dinning room ever since.  Easily my favorite part of my MMJ collection.

The set that I have is numbered.  There were 26 sets (I believe),

i'm happy to hear that Guy released another set for people to enjoy...I wonder if there are any differences between the first set and this new one

They're listed as part of a run of 26, so I believe these are what remains from the pieces available in the gallery.  It was Portland?  Do you remember when or the name of the gallery?  I was looking for the original post, and for some reason thought it was in NYC.
Close enough!

I thanked Guy the other day for digging them up and re-running them and he responded and told me they were the original run.

yeah they're definitely the original run, I've had quite the conversation with him about this. After I praised him for his artwork he finally responded with "And what about handsome?"  :)

seems like a good guy, makes me not feel as bad about spending so much money on some of his prints.

Just got these today. The bear actually has pooch written above the name on the back and then erased!  They are hand numbered out of 26.

It looks like Jims and Patticks also had different names written in and were also erased?  They are absolutely beautiful angelic representation of the band. Love love love them!

You have my hopes high (I only ordered the Bear too)!!!! Do you mind me asking which state you live in??

I'm in Alabama and it sounds like Guy is shipping from the NW, so maybe I have a day or two more to wait.

Got mine today (WOW that was fast)!!


THEY ARE SO MUCH MORE AWESOME IN REAL LIFE. I feel like I have the MOST AWESOME piece of rock/MMJ merchandise I could possibly own. These are seriously my holy grail(s).


He sent me the last set when he thought they we're gone. So I have 3 from set 3, and 3 from set 22. If anyone has pieces to complete these we should trade!

I only got the YY print (20/26) and it looks f'n sweet in my apartment!

I first talked to Guy about bringing those art prints back and asked if he might consider doing them on paper.  It appears he has.  I received these today.

My set, all 6 pieces, are #5 of 35, screen printed on heavy stock watercolor paper.  He threw in another set of 6, with more vibrant colors, a jazz theme, equally beautiful, all #20 of 35.  And the personalized greeting on the outer wrapping.

Not sure how to display them.  They're not all the same size.  They'll hang in the portfolio with his posters while I mull it over.
