Holiday Fundraiser

I’ve recently added some new original artwork to my fundraising site, www.phishart.com .  As some of you know, I’m also an elementary/middle school art teacher in North Philly.  With essentially no money for a budget, I’m forced to fundraise in order to get supplies for my classroom.  I created this site in order to sell some of my original artwork that I use for my digital prints.  Half of sales are donated to my DonorsChoose fundraiser, which helps me purchase supplies.  All prints are original ink and watercolor, which ship with extra prints and/or originals, as well as a thank you drawing from my students!  Direct donations can also be made here: https://www.donorschoose.org/project/help-our-classroom-keep-creating/3787371/ . DonorsChoose is currently offering to match donations up to $50 if you use code LIFTOFF from now until 11/30! Any orders placed via phishart.com  would also have it’s donation matched during this time period, so purchasing a $50 print would result in a $50 donation!  Own some art and help a good cause!

Pantoja Art Fundraiser

20180815_134059

When I’m not drawing Phish related things, I’m an elementary and middle school art teacher.  I want nothing but the best for my students (all 750 of them), and lately our budget has shrunk to almost nothing.  Sadly, as a teacher it is expected to raise funds for your classroom, since most school budgets won’t cover everything that’s needed to ensure successful learning.  While most of my coworkers opt for some great websites such as DonorsChoose, I decided to do things a little differently.  Almost all my art starts out as ink and watercolor illustrations that are then scanned and digitally arranged.  Some are randomly given away, but must are put in a portfolio where they are forgotten.  Rather than let them sit and collect dust, I came up with an idea to get them out of my house and help out my classroom!  I’ve reopened up my old shop,  www.phishart.com where my original artwork can now be purchased, with 50% of what I sell going directly to purchase art supplies for my classroom.  All orders will ship with extra original illustrations or prints, and a thank you drawing created by my students.  We appreciate your support in ensuring my students can have the proper supplies to create some awesome artwork!

Dead and Company Philly 11/16/17

I recently created a print for the upcoming Dead and Company show at the Wells Fargo Center on 11/16/17.  My print was inspired by an old print I came across of Ben Franklin and his son conducting his famous kite electricity experiment.  The original is ink and watercolor, and prints are signed and numbered, limited to an edition of 75.  I will have these on the lot at Wells Fargo, and the remaining prints are currently available in my shop!  www.joseeen.etsy.com

Direwolf/ St Stephen Prints

Josean Rivera

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.
