What I did with my Summer Vacation

Back in May I had posted about my ambitious summer project, a poster for every show/run Phish played this summer.  I surprised myself when I first announced it, wondering if this was a good idea. I was still going to do the illustrated setlists, and those can take a lot of time on its own.  But here we are in August, and I can say it was a success! 13 posters, 11 different kinds of fish, and a few epic beards in 2 months.  It was fun working with detail again, it had been a couple years.  This was also my first time drawing fish, so I learned a lot doing that.  This project also allowed me to more acquainted with the digital medium.  Everything I learned has been self taught ( I avoided digital in college, and learned just enough to edit photographs), and I can say I can do a lot more now than 2 months ago.  I’ll be working on Lockn and Dick’s soon, taking a little break to work on some other things.  Stay tuned for more!

This summer also marks my 3rd year making my illustrated setlists.  I was a bit worried, because I had told myself a while ago that I wouldn’t make them anymore if they started to feel like a chore.  At this point, I have the process streamlined, and can create them quickly (I might make a post about the process), but no longer feel that I have to create them right when the show is occurring.  Previous years found me showing up to streaming parties with a laptop, drawing pad, and a scanner!  By allowing myself to create them at my own pace, so I was able to continue this year without that feeling of “got to do the setlist..”  This also gave me the chance to redraw a lot of older songs, especially the ones played frequently, as well as several versions of new songs, which were also played a lot this tour.

The setlists by the numbers:

  • 20 setlists
  • 457 total songs
  • 205 different songs
  • 21 bustouts (had to draw a lot of these)
  • 9 new songs (most with 2-3 variations)
  • 41 new illustrations for songs commonly played

All posters are available in my etsy shop, and I’m offering both poster and setlist for only $25 (plus shipping) !

I also have just the show posters in a more streamlined shop: www.phishart.com

More stuff coming soon, and I’ll soon start taking commissions for specific show setlists.

Phish 7/1-7/3/16 SPAC

It always feels good to be back at SPAC!  I was able to attend these shows with a large group of close friends, which made the run very enjoyable, aside for the rainstorm right before the first show (I got soaked of course, and it felt great).  We stayed at a house/recording studio 30 minutes from the venue, a nice change from the hotel scene. The lot scene was great, SPAC is known for its shakedown, and it doesn’t fail to deliver.  I brought my SPAC posters to sell and got a very positive reaction (and quite a few sales!)   I still have some left, but they are going fast!
