I did a sketch of last years Worcester show at the request of someone on the Phish.net forum. I’d figure it would be useful practice, plus it helps figure some logistics before I start this tours setlists. Excuse the smudges (Left handedness can be brutal). I may use some of these images again, but they will most likely keep slightly evolving as I draw more. I’m still debating on color, and whether to do it digitally or traditionally. Eventually the goal is to get the final versions printed, probably 11×14, and offer them for sale. I also plan to do past shows as well (If I’m ambitious enough, maybe try Big Cypress!) as time goes by, but I’ll probably start with the shows I’ve attended. Let me know what you guys think!

Notes: During Wilson, Trey said he repeated a verse because he was extra excited his friend Rog (Roger Halloway) was in attendance. My Mind’s Got a Mind of its Own was last played on December 28, 2010 (109 shows). Prior to the start of the second set, Trey was given a Red Sox jersey (with “Phish” and “13” on the back) and draped it from Page’s piano. Waves included a Fuego tease by Trey and was preceded by a “Charge!” tease by Page. Caspian and DWD were unfinished. Ghost contained alternate lyrics.
I had a great time at the Harrisburg Jamfest this weekend! I got to see lots of friends, many of whom played the event. It had the backyard camping feel (It originated on the promoter’s mom’s backyard) I set up on Saturday along with some other venders and it was nice to have people recognize obscure phish reference in the some of my artwork. I sold a couple prints and an antelope painting, so the weekend was successful, but more importantly I had fun!
The girl that bought this insisted on displaying this all weekend! I plan to do more of these, as well as traditional yellow antelope canvases for the lots. I also sell them through my esty shop, available in whatever colors you’d like (just post a request in a comment). I’m also gearing up for the start of tour tomorrow, and on the search for a live video or audio stream. If I do, expect an illustrated setlist on wed night! SPAC might take a bit longer, since I’ll be camping that weekend, but fingers crossed I can get cell phone reception to at least see the setlist.
I gave it the old digital try. Hadn’t done art on a computer in a while, but I’ve had the time to give it a second chance. I hand drew the ingredients and did colored it digitally. I think last time I worked with coloring on a computer was high school computer art class (yeah, we had those in the 90s!).
I plan to have these on the lots at Mann and MPP, they will also be available online via Etsy. They are 11×17 on 65 lb paper. Each one is hand signed and limited to an edition of 50.
Scouring my external hard drive, I also came upon this gem. Not directly phish related, but I had done it for a flyer for the band Great Northeast from Harrisburg, Pa (my hometown). It’s comprised of 150+ bluegrass instruments and was possibly the reason I stopped doing digital art for several years. I also have this available through etsy, and will be selling some at a small festival a good deal of my hometown friends will be performing in.
I’m going to try out some other things digitally, but paper and pencil will probably my main instrument. More sketches, drawings, and in 2 weeks, illustrated setlists! Follow me on twitter for updates! https://twitter.com/joseeen
An illustrated setlist of Phish’s performance on David Letterman tonight. I plan to do more, ideally for the whole summer tour. I’ll be making prints, as well as take requests for past shows to do on commission. Stay tuned on here and esty for new prints!
