Armadillo Study

Posted in Drawings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 4, 2020 by josean

I happy to share one of my recent prints, one of many I have done during quarantine! I’ve had a fascination with armadillos, and have included them in some of my previous work .  I had drawn my most recent one planning to incorporate it into a Phish poster I had planned, but we all know what happened…

The original was an ink drawing, which I digitally added some watercolor backgrounds.  Prints are 8×10 Gloss Card (110# Cover), and available in 3 signed and numbered editions: Black and white (100), galaxy (50), and warm/cool (50). Prints can be found in my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/listing/830370493/armadillo-study

 

The Net’s Unbreakable

“..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!

2013 started off on a roll (pardon the pun).  I had been previously making some simple block prints (mainly examples that I’d use in class) which I’d make stickers out of, but I hadn’t really worked seriously with lino blocks since college.

Getting some new blades motivated me to work detailed again.  My first couple prints were more studies than anything, making block print versions of several drawings/paintings I had done previously.

Esther Suite prints now available for sale

Posted in Misc with tags , , , , , , on December 9, 2010 by josean

I’m now offering my Esther prints for sale through FIne Art America.    Individual prints are available, or you can purchase a print of the entire series for as low as $22.

 

One of my earliest printmaking endeavors, it was inspired by the song of the same name by Phish.  A haunting, melancholy song, “Esther’s” music is “lyrical, evoking a circus mood, soaring flights through the clouds, and helpless drowning”.  The descriptive song lyrics allowed it to be interpreted into images, resulting in the this suite.

Here’s a video of Phish performing Esther in Philadelphia 11.25.09
