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
The 10th print in my summer tour series. Inspired by the Spanish poster for “It! Terror From Beyond Space” (1958). This was the toughest print for me to create. This one took me the longest to create, apart from the pressure of making it a good one (it felt like a lot of people were waiting for this one). I had almost finished it up when I decided to start over and create a new version. Lots of time was spend painting sloth fur, as well as even more time fixing it digitally. Being self taught, I’m pretty sure there’s an easier way to do all the things I do in Photoshop! As always, the images are all drawn, inked and watercolored, then scanned and 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 , and will be available on lot before the shows.
I recently had the time to do some much needed maintenance to my Shop, as well as to this site. I’ve streamlined my shop, and at the same time added more items. Through the power of scroll-down menus, I was able to add setlists from previous years. I’ve also changed up this site, including updating the setlist archives. It’s now easier to go to a specific show or tour with endless scrolling.
I have previous year setlists on sale, including deals if you purchase multiple show runs! I also have 2016 show posters available for all the summer tour shows. Sadly, I doubt I’ll be able to do show posters for all of Fall tour (it’s been a busy school year so far) but I might do a poster for all of tour, possibly a block print. I’ll of course be creating setlists for fall, and with them new song illustrations. I’m also opening up commissions for any show setlists for only $25! You tell me the show, I create the setlist with header art, at a very limited edition of 10. I can also do multiple shows for a discounted price. You can contact me below if interested, or hit me up on various forms of internet (FB, IG,Twitter links on the side menu). And as always, a dollar from every setlist sold is donated to Mockingbird Foundation as a thank you for allowing me to use their setlist notes for my setlist art!

I was recently interviewed for the last issue of Surrender to the Flow, a publication created by Phish fans for Phish fans. If you’ve gone to any show in the last 18 years, chances are you’ve seen them on lot.
A treasure trove of vital information any phan should know about the venues they’ll be visiting, as well as stories and articles about the band, scene, and phans. Created in 1998 (before the luxury of smartphone), each issue told you what you need to know for your trip, especially when doing multi city tours.
I was interviewed by Sydne Kasle, who ran across my artwork on the internet. She contacted me with questions (that I’m sure a lot of people had), and I was happy to answer! The issue(their 50th!), was given out for free at all the east coast shows. You can also download the issue as a PDF here. It’s free, but you can always donate to support this publication, which is created by volunteers. Surrender to the Flow is currently on their 51st issue, which covers and will be available during Phish’s west coast run, as well as online.
