My design for the Merriweather shows. Merriweather holds a special place in my heart, I’ve actually seen the most shows there. It’s the place where I run into the most people I know, either from Philly, the Harrisburg area where I grew up, and even old friends from college! The art was inspired by these interactions with friends, some of who I haven’t seen in years, and some who are no longer with us. I chose to use robots, since they have been a theme in lots of my work in the past, including stickers I used to give out/put up at shows I attended. This was one of my toughest pieces since I had so much detail with the audience! The original painting was ink, watercolor, and gouache paint. Prints are 11×14, signed and numbered, and limited to an edition of 100. Tickets are based on PTBMs, and the barcode links to the setlist on Phish.net!
This show was webcast via Live Phish and featured the Phish debut of Halfway Home. Trey teased My Soul in Gumbo. Crosseyed and Painless was quoted and teased in Everything’s Right and quoted in Ruby Waves, Twist, and Wilson. Ruby Waves was unfinished. The Very Long Fuse was quoted in Sanity. Wilson included a quote of The Birds.
Prints are available in my shop! Choose from a single night, or both nights. Orders over $35 get free shipping, and I also have my linocut (low quantity alert!) from Merriweather available! www.joseeen.etsy.com
The sixth print in my Summer 2019 Series. For the Merriweather shows, I was inspired by another of Dürer’s prints that he created for Book of Fools, this one titled ” Impatience When Punished” (1494). The Lizard Fool makes another appearance (the first was in my Bonnaroo print), and I choose to replace the bagpipe with a vacuum, and included a guitar, a drill, and a Moog synthesizer in the foreground.
Prints are 9×12 on 11×14 paper, and printed with Supergraphic black ink by Bill Fick. Both editions are printed on 140 lb watercolor paper. Black and white are an edition of 30, and 2 watercolor variants of 9 each. Due to the nature of the process each print may slightly differ in background color. I will have the prints with me on lot this weekend at the shows, and remaining prints will be available in my shop on Monday.
This show was webcast via Live Phish. Trey teased Streets of Cairo during Meat. Trey teased L.A. Woman during Tweezer. Trey teased San-Ho-Zay in No Men in No Man’s Land. Page teased In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida in Twist. Piper contained a Tweezer Reprise jam and quotes. Also Sprach Zarathustra included Martian Monster teases.
The 9th print in my summer tour series. Inspired by “The Mummy” (1959). This was actually the first one I did in the series. I was creating a bunch of sketches for ideas at the time, and the Mummy/Merriweather seemed to work out well. The poster was based off several of the Mummy posters, and of course, the song Tube was in my head the whole time I was working on it. 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.
