“2020”

Posted in Art with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 22, 2020 by josean

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.

IMG_20200515_153456_635I 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!

“..So don’t worry about falling..”

Wormhole web
One of my first art prints in a while! Worms in a wormhole? Sure, why not! I had originally planned to use this as a phan print for Phish summer tour, choosing this image due to the net imagery, which reminds me of the song “Mercury”. I’m also a big fan of space related things, especially worm holes and black holes. The pink “worm” is actually inspired by a diagram of what a worm hole might look like!

Prints are available in my shop now! 

Signed and numbered edition of 50, printed on 13×19 high quality glossy paper (110# cover) and based off an ink and watercolor illustration that was then digitally arranged.

This image was original created as a hand drawn sticker which found itself up somewhere in Philly years ago.

I’ll be releasing more prints inspired by old sketches, sticker art, drawings a I’ve done in the past.  Be sure to follow my FBInstagram, or Twitter for updates!

I’ve come up with some new(ish) things the last couple weeks.  I’ve continued to draw and paint on new surfaces, including wood, vinyl, floppy disks, ect.  Although some are for sale, the majority of the work I’ve done lately has ended up on the streets of Philadelphia.  I’ve revisited the theme of saints, which has been a favorite of mine.  Each drawing is done with oil markers, as well as copic markers.  They are then installed throughout the city.

They are up all over the city, some prominent, others hidden out of sight.  Philly has a very active and diverse street art scene, and it’s share of devoted fans who document it.  For a sample of what Philly offers check out Elgrba and DDay521‘s Instagram feeds for a taste.

I’ve got 2 larger ones I’ve done for sale via my shop.  I’ll be doing more large pieces in the near future as well
