The 2nd in my Fall Tour series. Inspired by the poster for “Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster” (1965), and lyrics from Maze. I hadn’t done any Kaiju inspired posters, and this was part of the motivation to continue the series into fall tour. The images were all hand drawn, inked (pens and brush) and painted with watercolor. I then scanned them to create a digital painting that is true to the original poster. The prints are 13×19 on card stock, signed and limited to an edition of 150. Available now in my shop.
When I’m not drawing Phish related things, I’m an elementary and middle school art teacher. I want nothing but the best for my students (all 750 of them), and lately our budget has shrunk to almost nothing. Sadly, as a teacher it is expected to raise funds for your classroom, since most school budgets won’t cover everything that’s needed to ensure successful learning. While most of my coworkers opt for some great websites such as DonorsChoose, I decided to do things a little differently. Almost all my art starts out as ink and watercolor illustrations that are then scanned and digitally arranged. Some are randomly given away, but must are put in a portfolio where they are forgotten. Rather than let them sit and collect dust, I came up with an idea to get them out of my house and help out my classroom! I’ve reopened up my old shop, www.phishart.com where my original artwork can now be purchased, with 50% of what I sell going directly to purchase art supplies for my classroom. All orders will ship with extra original illustrations or prints, and a thank you drawing created by my students. We appreciate your support in ensuring my students can have the proper supplies to create some awesome artwork!
The 11th and final print in my summer tour series. Inspired by the Swedish poster for “The Invisible Boy” (1957) by Boheim/Werle. This was tricky to finish up, with the craziness of Camden, Merriweather, Curveball (RIP), and starting back up at school. Being a teacher gives me the summer to focus on prints, but this one was right in the middle of a busy time of year. I was stuck on a idea, and ended up bailing on a couple. My search for the right poster led me to foreign posters for American movies, and eventually I found some Swedish made posters. The work I found were amazing, inspired themselves from the American movie posters. This print was a different style than what I had done all summer, and required some different processes. The images were drawn and inked, then scanned. Certain parts of the images were drawn and colored digitally to match the original, and the background was watercolor and acrylic. The final image then 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
