Phish Summer 2018 series- Lake Tahoe

I’ve been busy the last couple months working on my upcoming series for Phish summer tour! After a break last year,  I decided to create a poster for every stop on the tour (similar to what I did in 2016). This year I’m working around a theme of vintage monster/sci-fi movie posters.  Using posters that I felt were a fit for each venue, I recreated the posters by hand drawing, inking, and painting the images, which were then scanned and digitally arranged.  The earlier posters were drawn to be as close to the original, as the series evolved and I became more comfortable with the style, I took more liberties with the images.  I’ve been working on these since February, and many have been completed, so I’m happy to finally release them as we get closer to summer tour!

Prints will be available through me on lot at MPP and Camden, (hopefully Curveball as well!), and will possibly be available at other shows I don’t attend.  I will also have them in my Etsy shop in the next couple weeks, as well as my streamlined shop that’s strictly devoted to this series: www.phishart.com. In celebration of this series, I will also be doing a small presale for the first print today (6/2) at Noon!

Lake Tahoe

The first in my series, This print was inspired by the poster for the Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954), illustrated by Reynold Brown, who created many of the iconic movie posters of the 50s and 60s.  I kept gravitating to his work while researching, and ended up recreating or being inspired by quite a few of them.

The images were all hand drawn, inked (pens and brush) and painted with watercolor.  I then scanned them to create a digital painting of sorts.  The prints are 13×19 on cardstock, signed and limited to an edition of 150. They will be available for purchase in mid-June through my shop, and a small presale will be happening on June 2nd at noon. I will be posting more prints shortly, and be sure to follow me on Instagram or Twitter for sale announcements as well as work in progress shots!

Four Horsemen

I’ve recently added a new design in my shop, available as a shirt or print!  This is a digital design, inspired by medieval woodcuts.  Print will be 8.5×11, limited to an signed edition of 25.  I’m also creating a limited run of shirts, for which there is a current pre-sale for.  Shirts are available in white (Fruit of the Loom Heavy Duty cotton), and during the presale only, black (Gildan), grey, green, and blue (Next Level).  The presale ends Monday, March 12th at 10pm and after that, shirts will only be available in white.
