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!
I finally finished up last nights show setlist. This one was a bit trickier, since Phish ended up playing a 12 song second set (plus a 2 song encore). This set (while awesome), threw off my 11×14 grid system that had been working all tour so far. I sat last night with two options: Try to cram everything on an 11×14 area, which would make the images smaller and obviously crammed together, or expand to 11×17. I opted for the latter, which makes this print an oddball, unless they keep this trend up.
As with the others, this print is available for sale via etsy. As I may have mentioned before, set notes are courtesy of Phish.net, who were gracious enough to allow me to use them. In appreciation, a portion of proceeds from each illustrated setlist benefits the Mockingbird Foundation, a nonprofit founded by Phish fans that support music education for children.
I’ll be getting ready to illustrate the Northerly Island run, although it’ll be tough since I’ll be out of town. I will try to get at least sketches up via twitter, with finished prints available early next week. Make sure to follow me on twitter : @joseeen to see my set list sketches, generally after each set!
