Phish Baker’s Dozen Poster

I’m excited to present my poster for Phish’s Baker’s Dozen Run in NYC this summer! Inspired by a vintage Easy Bake Oven box, the prints are 13×19 on heavy cardstock and are limited to a signed and numbered edition of 100.  Prints are available in my shop, and I will have some for sale at the July 22nd and August 5th PhanArt shows at Hotel Pennsylvania.5820ef626accd3adff4f2f79a7e2c131

My inspiration- a toy box from 1964.

When these shows were announced, I knew that creating a poster would be a challenge.  With a theme already established by the band,  I had to find something that fit in with theme while avoiding the obvious.  Ideas came and went, but eventually I came across a picture of a vintage Easy Bake Oven box and inspiration hit!  The original illustration is completely hand drawn, including all the lettering, which was then watercolored in a deconstructed manner and scanned in order to recreate the box.  I also went back to more detailed style that I hadn’t done in years!

I also ended up creating a poster for summer tour, which also appears in the Baker’s Dozen poster.  Any BD poster purchase will ship with one of these for free, and they are also available for purchase on their own.  The prints are 11×17 on cardstock, and limited to 100 prints.

Originally I was only creating one poster for tour, as well as setlist illustrations for all the shows, but that didn’t last long.  I just finished up a poster for the Pittsburgh show July 19th, and will be posting it shortly, so stay tuned!

Direwolf/ St Stephen Prints

I’ve recently finished up 2 more linocuts inspired by Grateful Dead songs, the 9th and 10th in an ongoing series. Although I have previously done both illustrations and linocuts, I feel I’ll probably be doing more linocuts for future songs.  These have been a challenge, but I’ve enjoyed both the process and the research involved in making these.  I’m hoping to work larger, although it seems a printing press of some sort will be necessary to accomplish that.
