Phish Studio Era Compilation pt II

I recently finished up the covers for a studio era compilation series created by Reddit user RiverportGin.  The series covers all of 1.0 Phish (1983-2000) and gave me an opportunity to draw songs that are unlikely to be played anytime soon . I also had fun with the headers, Which were based off a lyric of a song found in each particular album.  Click on the titles for a download link.

These were a blast to do. It was a way to work on different methods of illustration (digital/traditional) as well as practice for the upcoming summer tour.  I had the chance to go back and relisten to a couple gems (the White Tape was a blast!) and draw those seldom heard songs.  While RiverportGin doesn’t have plans to make complilations for the 2.0 and 3.0 albums in the near future, I plan to continue illustrating the rest of the albums, possibly create a poster with them.
