The Mockingbird Foundation is excited to announce “Rutherford”, the first in a series of art prints commissioned for our upcoming book The Phish Companion – 3rd Edition. Gloriously executed by the brilliant David Welker, the artist behind Phish’s Rift cover art, this print features an armor-suited Rutherford plunging into the depths of a raging river. Framed by rich Gamehendgian imagery, David’s stunning interpretation will be reproduced in TPC3 to introduce the first era of Phish.
This is the first in a series of eight art prints being created by top artists, each representing a different era of the band’s career. Each print will be reproduced in full color in TPC3, and also sold as limited edition prints (both individually, and as a complete set). More details about the print series will be released in the coming weeks.
David has created a special mirror foil edition of “Rutherford”, which we are excited to make available via our friends at Bottleneck Gallery. This screenprint measures 24″ x 18″, is printed on mirror foil paper (similar to David’s acclaimed Alpharetta ’14 print), and has an edition size of 600. (There will also be a standard edition of the print, to be sold at a later date.)
The mirror foil edition of “Rutherford” will go on sale at 12:00 noon EDT on March 31, 2015, via the Bottleneck Gallery website, for $100. Sales are limited to one per person.
Time for the Meatstick (shirts)! ‘The Meatstick’ has featured Japanese lyrics nearly every time since the Japan 2000 tour when the simple lyrics were included in the sing-along/dance-along tune. This shirt uses Kanji to match up Japanese and English lyrics to the beloved song. Special thanks to Yasu for the translation to Japanese.
This shirt is printed on Gildan Sport gray shirts and comes with free shipping and a free sticker. Sizes run Small through XXXLarge. Orders will ship in late March. To order a shirt, visit the PhanArt Store.

Eelus has two new pieces of work to debut. A new painting titled “Beyond the Red Curtain”, painted for the Cut-It-Out stencil show that opened at Urban Nation Berlin recently. You can see the full details for my piece HERE and you can also read the story behind the process in his journal.
Back in 2010 Eelus released a print called “Firestarter” as part of his Paradise Lost show at Brooklynite Gallery in New York. 10 were printed without the fire reflecting in the young chaps spectacles, the idea being to paint something different in there instead and release them as a hand finished edition. These ‘lost’ prints became buried under mountains of other curiosities and were subsequently forgotten about. Lost orphans of the print world, until they were re-discovered recently and finally finished. Better late than never.

A LOT of posters have been donated over the past 5 years since PhanArt.net got started. Fan Artists featured on the site have either donated money to The Mockingbird Foundation, or posters to be sold to benefit Mockingbird. Some prints get sold, but most end up in my back bedroom where they are kept safe and sound until someone buys one. The room is once again getting crowded and now it is time to clean things out and help out The Mockingbird Foundation, just in time for the holidays. This is a great opportunity to pick up some rare art and donate to The Mockingbird Foundation.
‘You Can’t Spell Charity Without Art’ is an occasional feature on PhanArt where you can buy a tube of 3 posters for $30. You will get your monies worth with these prints.
