Phish returned to Mexico for another 3 night run along the beach of the Riviera Maya. I was able to stream the shows live, and have sets of the 3 night run prints available in 11×17 and 8.5×11 sizes. Purchase prints here .

Phish Riviera Maya

20170105_144546

I recently finished up a new linocut for Phish’s upcoming shows in Mexico. Prints are hand-pulled, and printed on 108 lb 11×14 paper, and limited to an edition of 50 (although there will be some color variants in the near future). Prints are available for purchase in my shop,  Joseeen.etsy.com.

A last minute decision, I was inspired to do something after attending their 12/28 show, as well as streaming the rest of the run.  Trying to come up with something appropriate for a Mexico run poster, I recalled the work of Jose Guadalupe Posada, who’s artwork is best associated with Day of the Dead.  I recently had several students choose him for a presentation in my class, so I actually learned quite a bit from them!  After looking at many of his prints I took elements from two of them, El Cometa del Centenario de la Independencia  (The Comet Marking the Centennial of Independence) and El Pequeño Adivinadorcito (The Young Diviner) to create my illustration.

This is my largest edition to date, and marks the beginning of year full of block prints.  I hope to try some more complicated methods, as well as working larger, although this would require me to look into a printing press (and a bigger apt!)  I’ll be working on some color variants soon, and will be posting those here shortly!
