It’s been a crazy couple of days for me. With 3 nights of SPAC, attempting to draw, post, scan, and edit was quite the challenge. I managed to find some decent audio streams of the show all the nights, which works fine for me since I’m not really watching the tv most of the shows. I have been posting the sketches of the setlists on my twitter account, usually right after each set break. This has resulted in lots of new followers and retweets, which is really cool, and doesn’t happen often. I probably won’t post too many works in progress here, but the finished pieces.
Here’s the finished version of the First night at SPAC. I decided to switch to color. The previous setlist seemed a little drab, so I decided to add a bit of color, but not completely. I’m still getting the hang of coloring digitally, but I’m actually enjoying it this time around. The hardest thing to get used to is sitting in front of a computer instead of a table with paper and paint. Depending how this goes, I would like to use more expensive, yet better quality methods to print that would allow me to use watercolors and have the colors accurately reproduced (this has been a problem in the past) .
I have this and several other Phish themed art for sale via my Esty shop, www.etsy.com/shop/Joseeen. I will also have most of these on me when I go to the Mann and Merriweather shows. I usually walk the lots selling/holding the antelope sign canvas up. If there is something I have up here that interests someone, just keep and eye out for me, I may have it on me at the time.
I will try to get the July 4th show done soon, but with the craziness that will incur with the Mann show down the road from me (20 minute drive!) I’ll either be done with it tomorrow or Thursday. I’ll have a small sketchbook with me for the Mann shows, so I’ll be sketching the setlist from the show. Make sure to follow me on twitter to see them, I’ll probably be posting after each set!
