Thrilling, Chilling Phish Tour Posters

I’ve had a busy year so far (although I haven’t posted enough here!) Since the beginning of this year, I have been working on a series of posters for Phish’s summer, and eventually their fall tour.   The series is inspired by vintage sci-fi and monster movie posters, inspired by Phish songs, lyrics, as well as where the shows were taking place.  Since the tour dates this year were announced early, I had plenty of time to research and find the right theme.  I was drawn to the vintage posters, finding many I wanted to recreate.  I didn’t realize at the time, but the ones I choose were often illustrated  by  Reynold Brown as well as Albert Kallis.  I recreated the posters as ink and watercolor illustrations, trying to make them as similar to the originals.  As I became more comfortable recreating the style, I took more liberties with the images.  The posters were created in segments, which were then scanned and digitally put together to create the final poster.  I had planned to only to do a summer tour series, but the feedback and requests inspired me to also continue the series for the fall tour.  I will create one more for the New Years Eve run at Madison Square Garden, and then the series will come to an end.  All prints are available in my shop, www.joseeen.esty.com.  They are 13×19 prints on cardstock, signed and limited to an edition of 150.

Gone Phishin’ Series

I recently finished up my latest series, 15 show posters for the band Phish’s summer tour.   I done posters for past shows, but only a handful (aside from my illustrated setlists for every show).  I wanted a bit of a challenge, and wanted every poster to have a common theme.  I also wanted to get back to drawing figures, as well as working with micron pens.  Using the obvious fishing theme, I used the state fish of each venue (as well as fish found in the area for multiple shows in the same state.)  Some of figures used were actual Phish fans who submitted pictures!

All the posters are available at www.phishart.com.  I also have a couple “unphished” versions available in my Etsy shop.
