I’m happy to present my latest poster, this time for Phish’s 2016 Fall Tour. Printed on multiple blocks, these prints are hand pulled, printed on 11×14 paper, and limited to a small edition of 20.
I hadn’t planned to do any posters for this tour (aside from the illustrated setlists) after having created 13 posters for each show/run of summer tour (having summers off gives me a lot of free time). With school back in session, and a bunch of new responsibilities (guess who’s mentoring the gifted students!) I didn’t think I’d have time to work on anything for this tour. That mentality didn’t last too long. I ended up creating this poster idea, inspired by the song “Cars Trucks Buses”. I wanted to try something new for this poster, the summer tour ones being ink and watercolor as well as digital. I decided to go back to block printing, having enjoyed working in that medium for my 2016 Riviera Maya posters.
I decided to try something new for this poster, so I opted for a multi block linocut. I had never done this before, so it was a bit of a challenge. I used 3 blocks, first one for the background, a second for the color of the car, truck, bus, and the banner, and the final for the linework. Registration was the trickiest thing, trying to make sure all the blocks lined up on the final print.
I had some fun with the background color, mixing around colors in the yellow-red range, the end result being that every background is unique for every print. Registration issues made the edition small, but I now have lots of freebies to give out with orders! I might also do a small color variant edition, as well as some hand colored version if there is a demand for them. Prints are available at www.phishart.com, as well as my etsy shop (where you can also check out my summer tour setlist posters.
