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

“..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: SPAC

20190706_094101

“I must inquire, Wilson, can you still have fun?”

The ninth print in my Summer 2019 series.  This is the print that almost didn’t make it with me at Saratoga Springs.  I was actually carving it on lot in Camden, which was fun because it actually helped a lot of people understand the process.  I finished carving it, and printed them the night before the shows.  For SPAC, I opted for the horse racing theme (yeah, I know it’s been done before!) Albrecht Dürer had done a lot of prints with horses, but his wood cut “Saint George and the Dragon” (1504) caught my eye with its king in the background, which made me instantly think of Wilson.

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 lime green variant of 10.  Due to the nature of the process each print may slightly differ in background color. I had these with me on lot at SPAC and the remaining  prints are now available in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com

“And she knew that what she made would be the finest in the nation”

The eighth print in my Summer 2019 series.  I was very excited to work on this for my hometown show! In the hopes of some dark jams and evil Phish during the  Camden run, I looked at some of Dürer’s prints for the Book of  Revelations.  I took a portion of his print “The Whore of Babylon” (1498) and reinterpreted it as Reba on a Multi-beast on the banks of the Delaware with the BB&T burning in the background.  They actually ended up playing Reba, Tela, and Antelope during the run, but no Sloth.

Prints are 9×12 on 11×14 paper, and  hand carved and printed. . Both editions are printed on 140 lb watercolor paper. Black and white are an edition of 30, and a watercolor variant of 7, as well as edition variants.  Due to the nature of the process each print may slightly differ in background color. I had these with me on lot at Camden and the remaining  prints are now available in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com

Summer Tour 2019: Merriweather

20190621_185752.jpg

“Pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff”
-Henrietta

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.
