The Phish Skull Studies

20151211_153617

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.

Prints are for sale in my shop, and I have them available in several sizes.  I have prints of all four images in 11×17 and 8.5×11 sizes, as well individual prints of Cactus, Big Red, Henrietta, and the Chairman of the Boards, or a suite of all four prints.

New art added to my shop!

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!

 

Wishing it was Spring Sale

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!

8/31/2014 Phish at Dick’s Night 3

Dicks night 3 copy

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!

Night 3 is available for sale .  25% of proceeds benefit the Mockingbird Foundation

8/29/14 Phish at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park Night 1

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.
Dicks1 copyIt 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.

Prints of 8/29/14 are available via etsy, and  25% of sales from the Dick’s run as well as the themed shows setlists (which will be released shortly) will benefit the Mockingbird Foundation.

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.
