Phish MSG NYE Run

What a run!  I was lucky enough to attend 12/28, a last minute decision (like every MSG show I’ve attended), courtesy of my wife! Although we were in section 304, the view and sound were amazing!

The third set and encore featured James Casey on saxophone, Natalie Cressman on trombone, Jennifer Hartswick on trumpet, Jeff Tanski on keys, and Andres Forero on percussion with Natalie and Jennifer adding vocals to Petrichor and No Men In No Man’s Land. Petrichor through Suzy featured dancers on stage.

Auld Lang Syne was accompanied by recorded cat and dog noises as cat and dog balloons and raindrop-shaped stress ball fell from the ceiling.

Grab all four setlists at a discounted price! Or grab a mini-poster set of the run.   I know wall space can be limited, so I’m offering mini posters (8.5×11) of the NYE Run. Even though they are half the size, there is no loss in detail, and this allows all the posters to be framed together, or displayed in document sized frames that will use up the space size of 2 regular posters!msg-run-2016

Phish 2016 Summer Tour Posters

For this summer’s tour I decided to take on the ambitious project of creating a show poster for every venue this year.  On top of doing an illustrated setlist for every show.  So yeah…ambitious may be an understatement.  As challenging as this may be, I’ve had a lot of fun drawing these. I wanted a common theme for all the posters, and risking the overused fish theme, opted to illustrate the state fish for each venue. The drawings are micron pen and watercolors, along with some digital imaging.  Here are the first 5 I’ve done so far.  I hope to complete the rest before tour starts, and release them for sale in my shop (also on lot at SPAC) around the time of each show.

The Gamehendge Series

I recently finished up my illustrations of the Gamehendge series.  I initially started this project in June of 2013, but after doing 4 illustrations, I put the idea aside as I worked on other things.  I finally got to finish this series when I was recently commissioned to illustrate all the songs for a book they wanted to make for their niece.  In the end I ended up drawing all the other songs that take place pre/post TMWSIY, or pertain to Gamehendge in one way or another (some can be debatable).  I did about 20 6×8 ink and watercolor illustrations total.

I will be releasing prints soon, and maybe a poster.  The images will also be used in this tour’s illustrated setlists.  I’m working transitioning to all ink and watercolor (Ive got about 40 songs already illustrated).  I’ll also have work at the PhanArt Show during the Mann run (August 12) at the World Live Cafe, so come by and check it out before the show
