My design for the Alpine Valley Run, inspired by the song Fuego. The original painting was watercolor and gouache paint. Tickets are based on PTBMs, and the barcode links to the setlist on Phish.net! Prints are 11×14, signed and numbered, and limited to an edition of 100.
Setlist art is back! With my choice of doing linocuts for my summer tour posters, plus lots of traveling and 8 Phish shows, I wasn’t able to make my setlist art in the timely fashion I’m used to (Usually live while streaming the show). I thought people wouldn’t notice, but I was wrong! While I did some here and there, I wanted to draw up new versions, as well as having to illustrate the GOTF songs. Now that I’m done with my linocuts (well, still need to work on the one for Dick’s), I’ll be posting up the setlists from this Summer Tour, in reverse chronological order. Prints will be available in my shop, as well as digital downloads that you can print yourself! Enjoy!
This show featured several bustouts: The Landlady (first since July 10, 2016, or 122 shows), Olivia’s Pool (November 17, 1997, or 692 shows), The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday and Avenu Malkenu (August 21, 2015, or 147 shows), Strange Design (July 8, 2016, or 124 shows), Icculus (December 31, 2013, or 210 shows), and Catapult (July 27, 2014, or 191 shows). Trey teased Funiculi Funicula in Vultures. Trey teased Dave’s Energy Guide in Ruby Waves. Prior to Contact, Trey mentioned meeting a couple in his hotel lobby the day before where the man said he would propose to his girlfriend if Mike sang Contact on Sunday night at Alpine Valley. Trey teased Bridal Chorus at the end of Contact.
Prints are available in my shop! Choose from a single night, 2 nights, or all 3 nights. Orders over $30 get free shipping, and I also have my linocut from Alpine Valley available! www.joseeen.etsy.com
“..They call me the sloth
way down in the ghetto..”
The twelfth print in my Summer 2019 series. This print was created during the Alpine Valley run, and finished shortly after. I was inspired by the song The Sloth, and several Dürer woodcuts of St. Christopher. This was a fun block to carve, and the subject matter is reminiscent of a lot some of my older work. Dürer made several woodcuts of St Christopher throughout his life, which made deciding a bit harder. I ended up looking at 2 different ones. I based the background from a print he did in 1501, and added the venue on the far right. For the figure, I looked at an earlier print he did in 1495, which itself was modeled after traditional paintings of Bacchus.
Prints are 9×12 on 11×14 paper, and hand carved and printed. Black and white editions are printed on 140 lb watercolor paper, and the color variants are printed on 98 lb mixed media paper. Black and white are an edition of 30, and a ruby variant of 10. Due to the nature of the process each print may slightly differ in background color.
Notes: Mockingbird featured narration about Trey walking around Alpine Valley and having a bird shit on him, inspiring him to play the song that night. He also acknowledged that this was the band’s 17th show at Alpine and that the following day would be the 19th anniversary of their first appearance (August 10, 1996). The Very Long Fuse was quoted in Sanity.
