The third print in my Summer tour series. For the Bill Graham Auditorium show in San Francisco, I created a print inspired by the posters for Reptilicus (1961) by Reynold Brown, which takes place in San Francisco, as well as The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953), artist unknown. As I continued this series, I felt more comfortable altering things, in this case, replacing the monster from the Reptilicus poster with the monster from Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, which I felt better fit the use of the Lizards lyrics. The print was hand drawn in sections, then inked and watercolored to create the complete image. They were later scanned, and digitally arranged to create a version that is true to the original poster. 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 , and prints will be available on lot before the show.
The second print in my summer tour series. For the Gorge shows, I decided to create an homage to the poster for “The Amazing Colossal Man” ( 1957) which was illustrated by Albert Kallis . In place of the colossal man, I opted for George Washington, since it definitely seem appropriate for a show taking place in George, WA. Using photos of Washington’s actual uniform, I recreated the original poster, adding the actual Gorge background, as well as the stage. The print was hand drawn in sections, then inked and watercolored to create the complete image. They were later scanned, and digitally arranged to create a version that is true to the original poster. This was originally the only poster to not contain Phish lyrics, but as I created more posters (which included lyrics), it seemed like the odd man out. After many suggestions from others, as well as lots of researching, I finally decided on lyrics from 555. Oddly enough one of the planes has 555 on it, so it seemed fitting that I ended up using lyrics from that song!
Prints are 13×19 on cardstock, and limited to a signed edition of 150. I currently have a small presale going on in my shop ( www.joseeen.etsy.com ) , I will have prints available at the Gorge as well (although I won’t be there).
