Direwolf/ St Stephen Prints

Posted in Printmaking with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 19, 2017 by josean

I’ve recently finished up 2 more linocuts inspired by Grateful Dead songs, the 9th and 10th in an ongoing series. Although I have previously done both illustrations and linocuts, I feel I’ll probably be doing more linocuts for future songs.  These have been a challenge, but I’ve enjoyed both the process and the research involved in making these.  I’m hoping to work larger, although it seems a printing press of some sort will be necessary to accomplish that.

Spring Update

Posted in Printmaking with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2017 by josean

So it’s been a while since I’ve posted here! The last couple months have been very busy, work and artwork wise. I recently revamped my shop to include a lot of my recent printmaking  I’ve been focusing more on printmaking, including a few new prints and variants.

New prints!

Pizza Time

Taco Time

I created these for my 5th year at the Tattooed Mom’s tent for the South Street Spring Festival in early May.  I had fun with these, creating several variations, including a 3D version that comes with cardboard 3D glasses!  I have a few of these left, which are available in my shop.

Spring Fest!

It was an honor to be asked to join the TMom’s tent during the South Street Spring Festival for the 5th year in the row!  I was able to join a couple other amazing Philly artists to sell artwork and represent the spirit of Tattooed Mom’s.  The owner is a a big supporter of Philly Street art ( just go upstairs!), and rather than just sell some swag in their tent, he’d rather have artists sell their art! Thanks, Tmom’s!

New Shop!

I recently update my shop to include all my printmaking work. Since I’ve started doing my Phish inspired art, my main shop has been filled with that.  I created another site for my other artwork, www.joseeen215.etsy.com.  I must admit it was often neglected, but I’m working to prevent that!  I’ve added new work, and may add new as well as some older work.

Phish!

Of course there’ll be plenty of a Phish art for the near future.  With summer tour approaching, I’ll be making some posters for some of the concerts, with the Baker’s Dozen Run (13 show at Madison Square Garden during July/August) poster almost done.  I will also be vending at 2 of the PhanArt Shows at the Hotel Penn, right across the street from MSG.  With so many shows in NYC and no vending allowed outside the venue, this will be the chance to grab some Phish art from myself and a bunch of other awesome Phan artists!  I’ll be posting all about my posters for summer tour as well as more in my other site: http://www.phishart.net.  I’ll b repost onto this site, but will be sure not to overwhelm the non-phans!

Summer of the Skull

Posted in Art, Misc, Paintings with tags , , , , , on May 29, 2011 by josean

Summer’s on the way, which means one thing for me: 3 months off! Spring sprung up skulls back in my paintings, and I’m exploring new ways to work with them.  My backgrounds are more coherent, although there is still a bit of randomness and chaos.  I find it humorous the extent that color plays in my work, since about 6 years ago all my work was void of color.  I figured I’d get to it at my own pace, which happens to be perpetually late.

Here are 2 of my most recent paintings.  I’ll have prints available for sale in early June.  Boxy Skull prints now available! or wear it on a shirt

Although I plan to have a cohesive body of work, I don’t plan to limit what I paint.  I do plan to start offering commissioned work and portraits for a limited time.  If anyone is interested, feel free to email or message me through my Facebook page.

Lastly, the newest issue of Gigantic Sequins is coming out real soon (any day now).  This art and literary magazine will be featuring art by Jennifer Maidment, Joshua Gabriel, and a couple of my drawings, plus lots of literary goodness.  Issues will be available at select shops in Boston, NYC, and Philadelphia (other cities TBA), or you can order a copy through Gigantic Sequins.  Preorder now, and you’ll be automatically entered for their Welcome Summer Raffle, which offers ten multi prize packages you can win!  That’s ridiculous! Check out their site for details.

You Should Come To This Gig…

Posted in Drawings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 7, 2010 by josean

I love music.  It’s one of my biggest influence, and I can say that the majority of my artwork has been done while listening to music.  After several failed attempts at playing instruments, I figured early on that making show flyers was the closest I get to the music world.  Most of my friends are musicians and have gone on to be in bands, so it’s only natural that they would approach me to draw something up for them.  This has led to being lucky enough to make the flyers for bands in the Harrisburg area that I enjoy listening to.  Here are a few..click on the links to check out their sites and check out some songs you can stream.
