Phish Baker’s Dozen Poster

I’m excited to present my poster for Phish’s Baker’s Dozen Run in NYC this summer! Inspired by a vintage Easy Bake Oven box, the prints are 13×19 on heavy cardstock and are limited to a signed and numbered edition of 100.  Prints are available in my shop, and I will have some for sale at the July 22nd and August 5th PhanArt shows at Hotel Pennsylvania.5820ef626accd3adff4f2f79a7e2c131

My inspiration- a toy box from 1964.

When these shows were announced, I knew that creating a poster would be a challenge.  With a theme already established by the band,  I had to find something that fit in with theme while avoiding the obvious.  Ideas came and went, but eventually I came across a picture of a vintage Easy Bake Oven box and inspiration hit!  The original illustration is completely hand drawn, including all the lettering, which was then watercolored in a deconstructed manner and scanned in order to recreate the box.  I also went back to more detailed style that I hadn’t done in years!

I also ended up creating a poster for summer tour, which also appears in the Baker’s Dozen poster.  Any BD poster purchase will ship with one of these for free, and they are also available for purchase on their own.  The prints are 11×17 on cardstock, and limited to 100 prints.

Originally I was only creating one poster for tour, as well as setlist illustrations for all the shows, but that didn’t last long.  I just finished up a poster for the Pittsburgh show July 19th, and will be posting it shortly, so stay tuned!

Madison Square Garden
New York , NY
This show was webcast via LivePhish. This show featured the floor and stage covered with artificial turf (numerous plants also dotted the stage). Prior to the show, actors played garden sports including croquet, badminton, and mini-golf, while a few more “sunbathed” on a riser behind the stage. During the first setbreak, golfers came on stage and hit soft golf balls into the crowd.  Light contained an Auld Lang Syne tease.  You Enjoy Myself contained a Birds of a Feather tease.  Trey, Page and Mike came out for the third set in golf carts and began hitting golf balls into the crowd. Fish then arrived on a golf cart wearing donut pants and shirt, an argyle vest, and a golf hat.  Golf carts were brought back on stage during Kung, then began racing past the stage periodically during Chalk Dust. During the Chalk Dust jam, golfers began getting out of the carts, hitting balls into the crowd and dancing on stage.  One of the golfers did the New Year’s countdown from on top of a cart.  Auld Lang Syne was accompanied by balloons dropping from the ceiling and ping pong balls fired from cannons.  Tweezer Reprise featured Carrie Manolakos on vocals and a number of backup singers. The remainder of the third set and encore featured song titles focusing on a golf theme. Wilson was preceded by an animated Wilson golf ball on the venue’s jumbotrons. Iron Man was preceded by Page coming to the front of the stage to wish the crowd Happy New Year and reference the start of the 30th year of Phish. In an apparent reference to Bob Hope, Page wore a blazer, USS Nimitz ball cap and carried a golf club. Driver was stopped and restarted.This show featured the Phish debuts of Garden Party and Fly Like an Eagle, the first full Phish performance of Iron Man (which was last played December 31, 2003, or 192 shows), and the first ever a cappella Lawn Boy.

This show was webcast via LivePhish. Don’t Bogart That Joint was last played on October 31, 2010 (238 shows). Twist contained Low Rider tease. Piper fetaured Trey on Marimba Lumina and Mike on keys. The third set and encore featured James Casey on saxophone, Natalie Cressman on trombone, Jennifer Hartswick on trumpet, Jeff Tanski on keys, and Andres Forero on percussion with Natalie and Jennifer adding vocals to Petrichor and No Men In No Man’s Land. Petrichor through Suzy featured dancers on stage. During Petrichor the dancers had umbrellas and water marbles fell from above. Auld Lang Syne was accompanied by recorded cat and dog noises as cat and dog balloons and raindrop-shaped stress ball fell from the ceiling.

Grab all four setlists at a discounted price! Or grab a mini-poster set of the run.   I know wall space can be limited, so I’m offering mini posters (8.5×11) of the NYE Run. Even though they are half the size, there is no loss in detail, and this allows all the posters to be framed together, or displayed in document sized frames that will use up the space size of 2 regular posters!msg-run-2016

As the band jammed, part of the screen descended and became an hourglass shape surrounding the stage, on which a series of images were projected. As the jam continued and the countdown to midnight approached, the band returned to the main stage.
