Holiday Fundraiser

I’ve recently added some new original artwork to my fundraising site, www.phishart.com .  As some of you know, I’m also an elementary/middle school art teacher in North Philly.  With essentially no money for a budget, I’m forced to fundraise in order to get supplies for my classroom.  I created this site in order to sell some of my original artwork that I use for my digital prints.  Half of sales are donated to my DonorsChoose fundraiser, which helps me purchase supplies.  All prints are original ink and watercolor, which ship with extra prints and/or originals, as well as a thank you drawing from my students!  Direct donations can also be made here: https://www.donorschoose.org/project/help-our-classroom-keep-creating/3787371/ . DonorsChoose is currently offering to match donations up to $50 if you use code LIFTOFF from now until 11/30! Any orders placed via phishart.com  would also have it’s donation matched during this time period, so purchasing a $50 print would result in a $50 donation!  Own some art and help a good cause!

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 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.
