Phish Summer 2018 Series- Dick’s

The 11th and final print in my summer tour series. Inspired by the Swedish poster for “The Invisible Boy” (1957) by Boheim/Werle.  This was tricky to finish up, with the craziness of Camden, Merriweather, Curveball (RIP), and starting back up at school. Being a teacher gives me the summer to focus on prints, but this one was right in the middle of a busy time of year.  I was stuck on a idea, and ended up bailing on a couple.  My search for the right poster led me to foreign posters for American movies, and eventually I found some Swedish made posters.  The work I found were amazing, inspired themselves from the American movie posters.  This print was a different style than what I had done all summer, and required some different processes.  The images were drawn and inked, then scanned.  Certain parts of the images were drawn and colored digitally to match the original, and the background was watercolor and acrylic.  The final image then digitally arranged.  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

Phish Summer 2018 Series- Curveball

The 10th print in my summer tour series. Inspired by the Spanish poster for “It! Terror From Beyond Space” (1958).  This was the toughest print for me to create.  This one took me the longest to create, apart from the pressure of making it a good one (it felt like a lot of people were waiting for this one).  I had almost finished it up when I decided to start over and create a new version.  Lots of time was spend painting sloth fur, as well as even more time fixing it digitally.  Being self taught, I’m pretty sure there’s an easier way to do all the things I do in Photoshop!  As always, the images are all drawn, inked and watercolored, then scanned and digitally arranged. 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 will be available on lot before the shows.

Phish Philly Spectrum 12/10-12/11/99

I was recently commissioned to create the setlist for the shows at the Spectrum in Philly back in 1999.  Working with some suggestions from the person requesting the shows, I included some Philly sports icons, Julius Erving and Ron Hextall.  This was a fun project, and it allowed me to draw up some new songs.  I’m always open to do commissioned setlists, although with summer tour approaching it could take a bit.  Feel free to contact me via twitter, facebook, or instagram.

I made a very small edition of these (only 5), and have 4 of each available for sale via my shop.
