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!

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.

The folks I did the Without a Net poster for really liked it, and gave me the opportunity to do another poster for an upcoming show at the Brooklyn Bowl in NYC!  This is an all star line up playing the music of Phish, jazz style!  It features members of DMB, Snarky Puppy, Sun Ra, Strange Design, and more.  Find more info via the Facebook Event page

Summer Update

Posted in Art, Misc with tags , , , , on July 23, 2014 by josean

Apologies all around! I have been neglecting this site this summer.  I’ve been busy on my other site, illustrating Phish setlists, and trying to get ready for a wedding in about 2 weeks.  So it’s been waking up at 8 and treating this as a job, since it’s what I do all day.  Summer started out without a hitch, I was doing Free Art Fridays, as well as The First Friday on July 4th (it was a weird one).

One of my favorite bands, Phish, started touring in July.  As anyone who follows this blog knows, Summer= Phish related art.  I even created a blog just for it.  This year was nonstop phish art, in part because I’ve been illustrated every setlist of every show this summer, in real time, either by attending or listening to audio streams of the show live.

What started out as drawing random songs (which I’ve posted here in the past), and drawing their short setlist when they played on David Letterman as a challenge, kinda blew up.  I posted it on my tumblr, which doesn’t seem to be visited much, and shortly after Letterman’s official  tumblr account (Who knew he had a tumblr?) reblogged it, although by looking at the notes it seems not a lot of people follow it.  I started doing the next few shows, and eventually someone retweeted it, and it went crazy from there.  I was contacted by Phish.net about them, who allowed me to use their set notes on my art (which happens to be copywrited) and they even used them in their show recaps!  I have the entire tour available for sale, and will soon start taking commissions for specific shows, possible as larger sized and hand drawn/colored.  With the sale of these prints, a portion is donated to the Mockingbird Foundation, who provide music education to children.

Song Sketch I

My new blog is up and running.  I’ll be featuring many of these sketches based off songs, exclusively on this site. As I draw more, I’d like to feature prints based off of albums or show setlists.  I have actually done a series of stickers based off of Junta, most of which ended up on the streets of Philly. For a bit, you could track the album down by walking around Old City.  A few still remain, but most have been taken/ torn off.  So if you like nonsensical drawing based off songs written by a nonsensical fan, be sure to follow! phishart.wordpress.com

Summer Tour

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2014 by josean

Its that time of year once again! Phish tour 2014 is fast approaching, and with school ending soon, I’m finding more time to create some stuff for the summer.  With 2 nights at the Mann Center, it seemed fitting to create a poster for this show.  With the city skyline visible from the venue, and a zoo within walking distance, it only seemed fitting to use a Slave to the Traffic Light reference.  Image

The print is a 6 layer stencil (no registration- I had to line these up by hand) and spray paint on braille paper. They measure 8.5×11 (fits in a document frame.) Each one has a different sunset, and different colored lettering. I also have 2 available with smaller lettering on the top right corner. I will be doing a total edition of 50 of these, 10 will be available through etsy (Find the rest on the lot!) I can take request for specific colors, with small or large lettering, or no lettering at all until print all 50.

As I’m sure there are plenty of fans of my work that aren’t Phish fans, I’ll be working on a site to focus on that work.  First couple posts will be reposts from here, but I’ll quickly be adding new sketches and drawings, as well as original works and prints for sale.  More details to come!
