Phish Alpine Valley Run 2019

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!

Phish Summer 2019: Alpine Valley

IMG_20190731_175504_240

“..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.

Prints are now available in my shop!

Phish Summer 2019: Mohegan Sun

20190715_110144.jpg

“..but the net’s unbreakable
So don’t worry about falling”

The eleventh print in my Summer 2019 series. This print was created during the Mohegan Sun run, and finished shortly after.  I was inspired by the song Mercury, and the Durer woodcut “Astronomer” (1500) seemed fittings.  I turned the figure into the mythical figure Mercury, and behind him are the symbols for the Sun, Earth, Mercury, and Venus, as well as the Mohegan Tribe symbol (2nd symbol down).

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 violet variant of 7.  Due to the nature of the process each print may slightly differ in background color.

Phish Summer 2019: Fenway Park

20190708_133048

“Thunder calls through waterfalls
Rising tides and ocean walls
I can hear you when you sigh..”

The tenth print in my Summer 2019 series. This print was created during the Fenway run, and finished shortly after.  I had chosen image a while ago, not realizing how apropos it was.  For Fenway, I was inspired by Dürer’s print of Saint Sebaldus (1514).  Sebaldus is the patron saint against cold weather, and was a hermit who took residence near Vicenza, Italy (where I grew up!)  He usually depicted holding the church he helped start in Nuremberg.  It seemed fitting to have him holding Fenway Park, which many may consider a church in it own way.  This was a challenging block for me, both for the amount of time I had (started 1st night of Fenway on Friday, finished carving the following Monday), as well as trying to carve a 3×4 Fenway Park.

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 pink variant of 10.  Due to the nature of the process each print may slightly differ in background color. Prints are now available in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com

Summer Tour 2019: Charlotte

RiveraCharlotteBW

“Passing through the corridor I came upon an aging knight
Who leaned against the wall in gnarly armor
He was on his way to see the king”

The fifth print in my Summer 2019 series. For the Charlotte show, I was  inspired by the Dürer woodcut titled “The Knight goes out and commands two scribes and two priests to compile this book” (1493) and the song Lizards.  This is my second print to feature the Lizards, depicting the first meeting between Col. Forbin and Rutherford the Brave. as well as the Rhombus in the background
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 a red/blue watercolor variant of 10. Due to the nature of the process each print may slightly differ in background color.  Prints are now available in my shop (with free shipping!) www.joseeen.etsy.com

Summer Tour 2019: St Louis

stlouisbwweb

I excited to finally present the first of my 2019 Phish summer tour prints!  Continuing on the theme started by my Riviera Maya block print, I was inspired by the work of 15th century printmaker Albrecht Dürer.  I had been studying his work, as he was an early influence in my printmaking journey, and found many prints that I felt would lend themselves well as tour prints.  I started working on the blocks in January, and at this point have carved 8 of 13 blocks for the entirely of summer tour. I recently moved to a better (and larger!) living space, which means I no longer need to carve and print in the living room/kitchen! The move has delayed my work a bit, but as I get settled, I’ll be printing and carving the rest shortly!


For the tour opener in St. Louis, Missouri, I created a print inspired by the Dürer woodcut titled “Gerson” (1489). Jean Charlier de Gerson was Chancellor of the University of Paris,  who was forced to flee Paris after being suspected of leaning toward reform in the late 1300s.  This print was also inspired by the song “Ginseng Sullivan”, thus the ginseng instead of the unknown plant in the original, which can be seen in the bottom left corner of the print.  Although the song references the North Georgia hills, I was happy to find out that ginseng does grow in Missouri! You can also spot the Chaifetz Arena in the background, as well as the iconic St. Louis Gateway Arch.

 

Prints are 9 x12 on 11×14 paper, and printed with Supergraphic black ink by Bill Fick.  Black and white editions are printed on 140 lb watercolor paper, and the color variants are printed on 98 lb mixed media paper.  I haven’t decided on the exact edition size, but these summer prints will be a much smaller edition than last year’s.  Prints will be available in my Etsy shop this Friday (5/10/19) around 6 pm eastern.  Expect more summer tour prints to be made available soon after!

EDIT 5/19: After a long delay, my prints are finally available in my shop!  The recent weather in my area (lots of rain) caused my prints to take forever to dry, one of the downsides of oil based ink.
