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.

I recently finished my latest Dead inspired print, Cats Down Under the Stars.  It is based off the song by Jerry Garcia Band, as well as the art of the album by the same name.  The original was watercolor and ink, and printed on 13×19 thick glossy cardstock and limited to an edition of 50.

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!

You Should Come To This Gig…

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.
