Phish Riviera Maya 2019

I’m excited to present may latest linocut for Phish’s return to Riviera Maya in 2019.  Continuing my tradition of creating a block print for all their past shows in Mexico, I went bigger than ever before, carving a 12×18 block.  I was inspired by the work of Albert Dürer’s woodcut, The Four Horsemen (1498).  It was printed on 18×24  90lb paper, hand printed and pulled (really wish I had a press for this size!)  They are available in a limited signed edition of 30, including 2 small color variants.  Prints are available in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com

Phish Riviera Maya

20170105_144546

I recently finished up a new linocut for Phish’s upcoming shows in Mexico. Prints are hand-pulled, and printed on 108 lb 11×14 paper, and limited to an edition of 50 (although there will be some color variants in the near future). Prints are available for purchase in my shop,  Joseeen.etsy.com.

A last minute decision, I was inspired to do something after attending their 12/28 show, as well as streaming the rest of the run.  Trying to come up with something appropriate for a Mexico run poster, I recalled the work of Jose Guadalupe Posada, who’s artwork is best associated with Day of the Dead.  I recently had several students choose him for a presentation in my class, so I actually learned quite a bit from them!  After looking at many of his prints I took elements from two of them, El Cometa del Centenario de la Independencia  (The Comet Marking the Centennial of Independence) and El Pequeño Adivinadorcito (The Young Diviner) to create my illustration.

20170103_161157

This is my largest edition to date, and marks the beginning of year full of block prints.  I hope to try some more complicated methods, as well as working larger, although this would require me to look into a printing press (and a bigger apt!)  I’ll be working on some color variants soon, and will be posting those here shortly!

Phish Riviera Maya 1/15-1/17 2016

Phish recently played their first ever shows in Mexico, on the beaches of Barcelo Maya Resort.  I wasn’t able to make it, but at least was able to watch it live via stream.  These show setlists are available for purchase as a 3 print set of the entire run.

Phish Mexico

I recently finished up a linocut poster for the Phish Riviera Maya shows in Mexico coming up this weekend.  I had been on the fence whether or not I wanted to do something for this show, since I normally just do illustrated setlists for the shows.  But the idea came organically, and with a 2 week Christmas break, I really had no reason not to.  I have done lucha libre inspired artwork in the past, and wanted to avoid the Mayan/Aztec based theme, so this seemed very fitting.

Inspired by vintage lucha libre screenprinted posters, I  knew this was be challenge to accomplish.  My “studio” consists of whatever space I have in my apartment, which doesn’t allow enough space for screenprinting. The next logical option would be to recreate a poster via block print (linocut). Although I’m familiar with linocuts, I’ve never done one this size, which usually work best when using a press.  Although they were hand pulled, I actually used a baren, which helped create a more consistent black.

20160110_140653

My first couple pulls were actually 2 color blends, which was utilized by many lucha libre posters, but I wasn’t overall impressed with it.  I made a small edition of these, and may play around with it more in the future.

20151230_110309

I finally decided on a tri color background, which I saw on a few lucha posters, but are mainly with old concert posters.  Without the ability to screenprint, I had to find a way to mimic that look.  I did a few with a watercolor background, but it was a bit to light for me. acrylic took a lot of time, and gouache seemed like a likely winner, but then I remembered I have a ton of cans of spraypaint, and was able to get the color blending I wanted.
