Pantoja Art Fundraiser

20180815_134059

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!

Phish Fall Tour 2018 Series- Albany

The series continues! The 1st in my series of fall tour posters, This print was inspired by the poster for “The Colossus of New York” (1958), and lyrics from Waking Up Dead.  I was inspired by elements from the original US poster, as well as a UK Quad version.
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

Phish Summer 2018 Series- Merriweather

The 9th print in my summer tour series.  Inspired by “The Mummy” (1959).  This was actually the first one I did in the series.  I was creating a bunch of sketches for ideas at the time, and the Mummy/Merriweather seemed to work out well.  The poster was based off several of the Mummy posters, and of course, the song Tube was in my head the whole time I was working on it.  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.

Phish Summer 2018 series- Austin TX

The fifth print in my summer tour series.  For the Austin show I was inspired by the poster for The Giant Gila Monster (1959).  This was a simple one, basically a recreation of the original poster that I hand drew and colored.  I used lyrics from Shafty, since they were similar to the poster quote (“Only Hell could could breed such an enormous beast!”)  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.

Phish Summer 2018 series- The Forum

The fourth print in my summer tour series.  For the Inglewood show at the Forum, I was inspired by the poster for the Japanese kaiju film “Yog:Monster From Space (aka Space Amoeba)” (1970).  This was probably my most complicated illustration to date in the series.  I had to create quite a few different paintings to get all the elements I needed to recreate it.  Instead of the Earth, I opted for an Inglewood landmark, the Randy’s Donut sign.   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.

Still Waiting (for Fall Tour)

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!
