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!

Spring Break/Cleaning

Posted in Art, Drawings, Misc with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 17, 2014 by josean

Spring time is here, which means that lots of things will be happening artwise for me.  First is my spring sale on my Etsy site.  I’m in need of space in my apartment for new work, and will happily sell some work at a decent price to accomplish that.  So from now until April 25th, you can use the coupon code SPRINGBREAK to receive 25% off anything in my shop.  I’ve also put up listings that had previously expired (many etchings!), so you can can take full advantage of this offer.  69 (more soon) prints, paintings, etchings, and drawings to choose from.  

 

In Phish related news, I’ve been hard at work on stuff to sell this summer.  With my wedding in August, this will be a slim year show-wise.  I’ll be at the Mann Center in Philadelphia (huzzah!  20 minutes from my house)  for their 2 night run July 8th and 9th and Merriweather Post Pavillion in Maryland on July 26th and 27th.  Sadly I won’t be making it to SPAC ($$$), but I won’t discount a possible night at Randall’s Island.

I’ll have some new antelopes to sell, including some Philly related ones.

I’m on the fence whether I want to offer these as prints or just try to sell the originals at the lots.  They are currently available on my Etsy shop, but I’ll be making more if they sell out for this summer.

_DSC0037Sketch for a possible Mann Center Poster.  It’s very fitting, since the Mann is right next to the Philadelphia Zoo.  I Actually looked up every Phish song that was named after an animal and drew a map showing where you can find them at the Philly Zoo.  Sadly there are no ocelots or llamas there…

More to come soon!

 

Free Art Fridays

Posted in Art, Paintings with tags , , , , , , , on June 29, 2012 by josean

I made these for free art Fridays, which I find to be a great idea.  It’s been picking up momentum, and you can find sites that document the artists, as well as the people who find them.  These 5×5 canvas panels will be around Philly, and expect more all summer long!

Phish Phrenzy

Posted in Art, Paintings with tags , , , , , , on May 28, 2012 by josean

It’s that time of year again!   With my schedule, it seems a toss up how many shows I’ll make it to.  I made these for the show I’ll be going to in Atlantic City (day one at Bader Field).  I figure if I’ll be tailgating, I might as well make sell some art.

ImageImage

I made these over the course of two days, on account of it being too hot outside over Memorial day weekend.  The antelope was a simple one layer stencil, but the traffic light was 4 layers, no registration.

Making good use of pennies

I’ll have a couple up on etsy, the rest will be sold on the road.

X-Ray Vision

Posted in Art, Paintings with tags , , , , , , on May 6, 2012 by josean

What started as a simple 1 layer stencil for a sticker (and possible wheat paste in the near future) turned into a 4 layer stencil I put on some canvas panels.  It’s been a while since I’ve worked with multi-layer stencils, which really makes me want to do some screen prints soon. It was a bit tough making sure the layers were lined up without any registration,  one of the reasons I’m selling these so cheap. Each one is unique and on an 8×10 canvas panel.  I’ll be making more variations, and custom color schemes are available upon request.

Heart Skulls

Posted in Art, Paintings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 13, 2012 by josean

I made some new heart skulls on a bunch of 8×10 canvases I found in the trunk of my car.  I made the stencil on copy paper since I couldn’t find my transparency paper, and it has somehow held up.  We’ll see how many I can get down before the stencil calls it quits.

These and more skulls are available on Etsy.
