Phish Summer 2018 series- San Francisco

The third print in my Summer tour series.  For the Bill Graham Auditorium show in San Francisco, I created a print inspired by the posters for Reptilicus (1961) by Reynold Brown, which takes place in San Francisco, as well as The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953), artist unknown.  As I continued this series, I felt more comfortable altering things, in this case, replacing the monster from the Reptilicus poster with the monster from Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, which I felt better fit the use of the Lizards lyrics.  The print was hand drawn in sections, then inked and watercolored to create the complete image.  They were later scanned, and digitally arranged to create a version that is true to the original poster.  Prints are 13×19 on cardstock, signed and limited to an edition of 150.  Prints are currently available for sale in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com , and prints will be available on lot before the show.

Phish Summer 2018 Series- The Gorge

The second print in my summer tour series.  For the Gorge shows, I decided to create an homage to the poster for “The Amazing Colossal Man” ( 1957) which was illustrated by Albert Kallis .  In place of the colossal man, I opted for George Washington, since it definitely seem appropriate for a show taking place in George, WA.  Using photos of Washington’s actual uniform, I  recreated the original poster, adding the actual Gorge background, as well as the stage. The print was hand drawn in sections, then inked and watercolored to create the complete image.  They were later scanned, and digitally arranged to create a version that is true to the original poster.  This was originally the only poster to not contain Phish lyrics, but as I created more posters (which included lyrics), it seemed like the odd man out.  After many suggestions from others, as well as lots of researching, I finally decided on lyrics from 555.  Oddly enough one of the planes has 555 on it, so it seemed fitting that I ended up using lyrics from that song!

Phish Summer 2018 series- Lake Tahoe

I’ve been busy the last couple months working on my upcoming series for Phish summer tour! After a break last year,  I decided to create a poster for every stop on the tour (similar to what I did in 2016). This year I’m working around a theme of vintage monster/sci-fi movie posters.  Using posters that I felt were a fit for each venue, I recreated the posters by hand drawing, inking, and painting the images, which were then scanned and digitally arranged.  The earlier posters were drawn to be as close to the original, as the series evolved and I became more comfortable with the style, I took more liberties with the images.  I’ve been working on these since February, and many have been completed, so I’m happy to finally release them as we get closer to summer tour!

Prints will be available through me on lot at MPP and Camden, (hopefully Curveball as well!), and will possibly be available at other shows I don’t attend.  I will also have them in my Etsy shop in the next couple weeks, as well as my streamlined shop that’s strictly devoted to this series: www.phishart.com. In celebration of this series, I will also be doing a small presale for the first print today (6/2) at Noon!

Lake Tahoe

Tahoe copy

The first in my series, This print was inspired by the poster for the Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954), illustrated by Reynold Brown, who created many of the iconic movie posters of the 50s and 60s.  I kept gravitating to his work while researching, and ended up recreating or being inspired by quite a few of them.

The images were all hand drawn, inked (pens and brush) and painted with watercolor.  I then scanned them to create a digital painting of sorts.  The prints are 13×19 on cardstock, signed and limited to an edition of 150. They will be available for purchase in mid-June through my shop, and a small presale will be happening on June 2nd at noon. I will be posting more prints shortly, and be sure to follow me on Instagram or Twitter for sale announcements as well as work in progress shots!

This show was webcast via Live Phish and featured the Phish debut of Soul Planet. During Soul Planet, the stage was transformed into a massive pirate ship with sails blown by fans, cannons blowing confetti, and a Phish ‘Jolly Roger’ flag. Fans were given bracelets that illuminated different colors depending on where seated during pirate ship sequence. All of the songs after Auld Lang Syne centered around a water theme. A Song I Heard the Ocean Sing contained Shipwreck quotes. Moma included an Auld Lang Syne tease.

I also have all four nights available as a set in 2 sizes, 8.5×11 and 11×17 at a discounted rate!
