A shower thought (and drawing lots of Dead art) led me to doing some skull studies recently. My original thought was some kind of Mike Gordon Steal Your Face/F ck Your Face mashup, and led to this series of Skulls inspired by the members of the band. I started these over Thanksgiving weekend (Trey was drawn while waiting for Thanksgiving dinner to be ready) and got a positive response online. I had originally done these to as practice drawing skulls/ using crosshatching techniques, but upon the insistence of the interwebs, finished up the set and made prints for sale.
I just added over 30 new prints and original watercolors to my shop this weekend! I found a bunch of prints that were made originally the the Phanart Show that took place at World Live Cafe during the Phish run at the Mann Center. I forgot about them until recently when I found a portfolio with the unsold prints. The prints were made from the original watercolors I used for the song illustrations I use in my setlists.
I have some of the original watercolors from which the prints were made from. These are ink and watercolor on 6×8 140lb cold press paper.
I also have some of the original watercolor paintings that I used for some of the show headers. While I generally do a mixture of tradition and digital for my headers, these are done traditionally (ink and waterolor) on 8.5×11 paper.
They are all reasonably priced ($25 and under) and be sure to follow me on twitter, and instagram for special sales and whatnot!
It’s been a rough winter in Philly. Cold weather, frozen pipes, and power outages having me longing for spring. So much I couldn’t wait to have my Spring sale. All setlists from summer, fall, and the NYE run have been discounted. Single sets are $8 (from $12) as well as discounts for the multi-night runs. Orders ship with stickers and extras, and as always, $1 from each sold sold is donated to Mockingbird Foundation!
A bittersweet end to a great run at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO. As sad as I am that I won’t have any shows to draw until Fall tour, although trying to make the setlists live with the time zone difference (I’m in Philly) was exhausting. This does give me a chance to rework a lot of song sketches that I found weak or have been in heavy rotation during summer tour. I am excited to play around with some new possible setups for the fall tour setlists. I’ll also have some other stuff in the works setlist-wise, as well as some Gamehendge related things. Stay tuned!
Phish is back this weekend for their annual Dick’s run. They’ll be playing the next 3 nights at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO. It felt good doing this again, even for just 3 days. I am hoping though to change up the format for the setlists I’ll end up doing for fall tour. I know I’ll be drawing new versions of songs, so you might see a few during this run.
These shows were especially fun for me, on account of being in attendance. I forgot my sketchpad, and initially freaked out, but realized this would allow me to fully enjoy the show. I brought it with me for the second night, and I’m glad I did. I had initially told myself that I would draw all new pictures for the songs, growing a bit tired of drawing the same ones. This kept me challenged, especially drawing so many variations of Tweezer! Prints are for sale via etsy.
