Phish MSG NYE

My final block print of 2019, created for Phish’s  NYE run. The 14th in my yearlong series inspired by the work of Albrecht Dürer. This print was inspired by part of “The Tapestry of Michelfeld” (date ND) and includes several birds found in Phish songs, as well as Trey’s dog Marley.  As I researched the image, I found it interesting that it was actually based off a tapestry made about a 100 years prior, this being a recreation of it.  Prints are currently available in my shop.

It’s been quite a year working on all these block prints! I didn’t expect that it would take nearly all my free time, but it was a fun experience.  For those asking, yes there will be a Dick’s Run linocut, hopefully before the end of the month.  I had opted to not make one at the time, mainly since I was back at school teaching, and had too many other things on my plate.

As for what 2020 brings, I’m still not sure.  A new year will bring a new theme and possible medium for my Phish prints, although I see myself going back to printmaking for some song illustrations or Grateful Dead inspired work.

Dickie Scotland) then came onstage appearing as Zamfir, holding both a pan flute and a pan. The third set opened with the Phish debut of Send in the Clowns, sung a cappella and with lyrics changed to Send in the Clones. For First Tube through Tweezer Reprise, each band member performed on separate moving platforms hoisted above the stage as dancers dressed as their clones performed onstage and provided additional vocals throughout the set and encore. Trey’s platform became stuck for the majority of the set and he had to be rescued after Tweezer Reprise. Given that the band (Trey) could not leave the stage after You Enjoy Myself, there was no encore break and Tweezer Reprise was announced as the start of the encore. Rescue Squad was performed Trey solo (singing and playing Fish’s drum set) while he was waiting to return to the stage.
