My interpretation of this year so far. 13×19 print of a 9×12 ink and watercolor illustration I made. As an art teacher attempting to distance teach from home, and a live music fan who will not see any concerts, this image encapsulates how I feel about the whole situation.
This was one of several images that I had planned to use as a Phish summer tour lot print. I had originally started this image several years ago, but set it aside for other things and never finished. I had found it recently in my studio and decided to complete it. Ironically, I had finished it shortly before Covid, and as things got worse, it more accurately described how I viewed the year so far.
I have prints available in my shop now: Joseen215.etsy.com. Prints are signed and numbered, limited to an edition of 100. Printed on glossy paper (#110 cover).
I couldn’t help myself and had to create a “Summer Tour 2020” version. Regardless of what concerts people had planned to go to, this image summed it up.
I created a 8×10 print version (doubted people would want a larger size). With an edition of 100, I figured I’d end up giving most away, but it seems a lot of folks could relate! The first edition sold out in less than 24 hours, with many more request for it. I recently created a variant lime green edition, with a much larger edition to ensure more people can grab one. They are currently for sale in my other Etsy shop: Joseeen.etsy.com. All prints ship with free stickers and postcards!
