Screens ‘n’ Suds’ mission is to enhance appreciation for craft beer and art while raising money for charity. “Screens” as in screen printing—posters, t-shirts and the like ‘n’ “Suds” as in beer—malt, hops, yeast and water. Since 2009, Screens ‘n’ Suds activities have generated over $50,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and other charities through sales of beer-inspired art donated by artists from around the country, MS Walks, beer dinners, and events.

PhanArt’s Best of 2011

Looking back on the past year and all the art that was seen on lot, online, on Etsy, Facebook, Expressobeans and PhanArt, it has been great to see the Phish art community expanding as Phish continues to tour.  Fans are finding the art inspired by Phish to not only help them get from show to show, but to also make it through the tough economic times in the country today. Fans are industrious to say the least while at the same time creative and seek to help each other out, something that Phish fans do unlike fans of any other band out there. Relatedly, the products that were once more difficult to make are now done with ease. In the past (1.0 and 2.0) it took talent and ability to design phanart, then you had to find a company to make the art (pre-internet) and then sell them, making a small profit with luck so that we could get to the next show.

Now, fans can make pins, the most popular form of phanart, and also a mildly profitable venture when done right. There are designs pouring out of the woodworks, with multiple pins DAILY put up for sale. They aren’t shirts (where it takes a design and a screenprinter) and this isn’t posters (where it takes a great amount of money and significant talent to make a sought after piece of art); this is pins – small, simple pieces of art that DO take time to create but are very easily created when compared to shirts or posters or any other version of art.

This year, the Best of 2011 was selected from fan reactions to art on tour, requests for art online, popular posts on Facebook and PhanArt.net, creativity put into the work, as well as fan and artist input in recent weeks on their favorite pieces of art. There were so many to choose from, we have some honorable mentions and an official 11 for 2011! Simply put: all PhanArt made in the last year has been amazing, and the following is some of the best. If you don’t agree, share what was missed below in the comments section

Honorable Mentions

Sand Spinner Pin from 10 Minute Tube Designs

Kerrigan fishes from Ryan Kerrigan and Flippin Out Productions

Rage Side shirts

Read Icculus stickers

 The Top 11 from 2011

#11. JDub Allstars SuperBall IX Shirts

JDub Allstars can be found at virtually every Phish show selling an extensive selection of shirts, hats and other designs. These shirts covered the bases for all nine of Phish’s festivals and highlighted an image corresponding to each of the previous festivals. Pick up one of the limited selection of sizes left at Doctor Fluff Tees.

#10. Jennifer Kahn’s NYE MSG token pendant Jennifer has been making some great unique, handcrafted art for a couple years now and this year’s NYE pendant showed her creativity and design skills, incorporating ‘Occupy MSG’ and the dates into a very stylish piece of jewelry. Jennifer has a couple left in her Etsy Store, 5 Silver and 2 Brass.

#9. Bug pin created by Ryan Kerrigan and Noah Phence - There have been dozens, if not over 100 pins made this year from various artists, but one of the most creative was done by tour vet and lot artist Noah Phence. Bug + butterfly + lyrics on the wings = a big seller and #9 on the list. Pick one up at zenster.net

#8. Jiggs’ MFMF shirt - Combining Iron Maiden and Phish is no easy task but Jiggs took the idea to fruition and resulted in a quickly sold out shirt.

#7. Bruce Horan’s UIC poster and shirt  Playing off NICU and UIC with a bit of visual imagery tests the eyes with Bruce Horan’s poster and shirt design from UIC this summer. Bruce has three shirts and a few posters left on his site 

#6. Angry Birds of a Feather shirt by Phil Hoffman These shirts were a hit on PT then made their way to UIC where Phil agreed to put these on the site. The Angry Birds of a Feather shirt combines two things that made for a great shirt design – an easily recognizable original image and an immediate reference to Phish that only Phish fans would get. The birds have the dates of the three UIC shows inside them as well. Phil has only a couple left

#5. Lego Big Red Pin by Jeff Crookes - First the lego of Big Red and a few others debuted to great applause and then the pins came and went in a flash.

#4. AJ Masthay’s MSG Rapture AJ continues as one of the preeminent Phish poster artists and has made official prints for both Umphrey’s McGee and Widespread Panic as well as great prints for select shows for Phish each tour. This quadtych catches the panic of 2012 arriving set inside midtown Manhattan with the Garden taking center stage, as it should. This print sold out shortly after release, as many of AJ’s classic posters do.

#3. TRiPP’s Tahoe set of prints TRiPP had alot of prints to choose from this year, including MSG, Gorge, Merriweather and practically every show since Bethel, but the Tahoe prints stand out for their vibrancy and design, complete with a fish bubbling at the bottom of the sold out prints.

#2. Kuroda Light Rig shirts from Jonathan Lamb The most creative hand drawn shirt design of the year, Jon Lamb’s ‘Kuroda Light Rig’ shirts. Vibrant in detail and capturing the 5th member of the band, Lamb’s shirt bounces off three different color shirts and draws you into the light.

and the #1 piece of Fan made Phish Art for 2011 is………………….

#1. Michael Ortiz’s UIC Poster “Da Blue Line”

Ortiz’s ‘Da Blue Line’ sold out in less than an hour at Da Mock Show at UIC on 8/16/11 and makes the list at #1. Capturing a classic Chicago image with the EL train blue line covered in the iconic cheerio design and headed straight to UIC, Ortiz’s print is no less than 5 colors and a giclee print on 220 gram fine art paper. The only remaining prints after UIC are his are Artist Proof prints which can be picked up by contacting Michael at ortiz (at) likemindedproductions.net and check out more great art by Ortiz on his site www.michaelortizart.com

 

UIC shirts and posters from Bruce Horan

When artists at Da Mock Show was setting up, PhanArt Pete walked around and took pictures to share on twitter so folks knew what prints to expect. There were a great many awesome prints, but only one used a creative play off of ‘NICU’ in their art. Bruce Horan’s NICU/UIC poster highlights U I and C in the NICUs running throughout the print.

PhanArt’s Best of 2010

2010 has been an amazing year for PhanArt on the lot and on the web. More and more art is being made by a larger number of fans, due to Phish’s return to full touring, more fans looking to share their creativity and the influence of the band in their lives, as well as a way to make it from show A to show B.

While we do not favor any art on the blog above any other art, this is the time of year when we share the Top fan creations of 2010 based on comments, reaction from phans at shows and online, as well as the creativity the artist put into the work. All PhanArt made in the last year has been amazing, and we think the following are some of the best.

This year we have 11, since we are ready to say hello to 2011

#10 Deer Creek Friday the 13th by lotlifestyle.com

These posters were seen briefly online before a last-minute trip out to Deer Creek, and we spotted them after night 1. We picked up a couple for ourselves and the good folks at lotlifestyle.com got in touch with us. Friday the 13th doesnt happen on tour very often so this creative effort is worth noting for its rarity and simplicity

#9 Isadora Bullock Deer Creek

This deer haunts our dreams. Now it haunts yours. Merry Phishmas!

#8 Ryan Kerrigan Broomfield

Brooms in a field. Simple and done well. Classic Kerrigan.

#7 Hartford Whalers/Wilson shirt

Combine the greatest defunct hockey team with Phish and you get this shirt. The weird thing: we never found out who was selling these on tour this summer. If you know who sold them, get them in touch with us!

#6 Bruce Horan’s SPAM SPAC

A street art feel and a play on words leads to a simple print that is anything but simple. Horan’s dedication to the craft is seen in the level of detail in this print.

#5 Eric Weber’s ‘Phreedom’

A great font + the most iconic of NYC images + Phish = Phreedom. An amazing senior project and entry into the world of PhanArt

#4 Brother shirt by UnoClay

Available ONLY on lot, UnoClay went all Nintendoo on us, coming up with a unique shirt (the back has the ? block and says ‘somebody’) that has detail worked into it. For fall he one upped himself – Birds of a Feather and Duck Hunt. Just when you thought shirt ideas were limited to corporate logos, along come games. Who’s making Call of Duty/Kill Devil Falls?

#3 AJ Masthay MSG

Not just one but THREE posters all sharing part of an aquarium. The first poster – the 30th comes on fierce as usual; the second – the 31st shows the ball dropping; the third – the 1st, is serene, as we will all be in recovery mode and asked to dance one more time to start the new year and decade.


#2 Lizzy Layne’s Fuck Your Face

A picture is worth a thousand words. Lizzy’s Holiday Run print has 3 words, so 3 x 1000 = 3000 words. Therefore, this poster is worth 3000 words AND tells you what to do with your face. Appropriate for work, home or the RV heading to the show.

and the #1 piece of PhanArt in 2010 is…………………..

#1 Vinny Naro’s Halloween Poster

Drawing by hand is one thing. Nearly everyone can do that. Drawing in pen and ink in extreme detail, and using nothing else in the process is painstakingly hard and takes a level of commitment that is rarely seen anywhere. Vinny Naro’s Atlantic City print is remarkable in its detail - the three clocks show 10:29, 10:30 and 10:31, respectively. The pipe organ is drawn to resemble the original that is housed in Boardwalk Hall (but in need of repairs, hence not being used that weekend). Satan is playing the pipe organ with his own devilish tune, and the designs throughout exhibit precision towards each facet of his work. Referring to this as a work of art is an understatement. We got this framed right after the shows.

Bruce Horan’s Rhythm Guide and Victorine

Two new prints from PhanArtist Bruce Horan are here just in time for the holidays. Bruce has brought many great prints in the past He continues to create and develop amazing pieces of art and these two prints are no exception.

The first, Rhythm Guide, is a 2 color screenprint on olive green recycled Speckletone cover stock. This print measures 13 x 19.25 inches and costs $20 + 8 shipping. Pick one up here

About Rhythm Guide
The tiger represents leadership, strength and nobility. Here we see the tiger as a Native American Chief, a position of leadership and guidance. The tiger is now an animal guide who shares its power and wisdom with us, helping us by bringing harmony and balance into our
lives. Our tiger totes an electric guitar, focusing his powers into the rhythm and musical harmonies around us, allowing us to find our own melodies within the balanced energy that surrounds. Also, he shreds.

Victorine a 4 color screen print on French Speckletone recycled stock, 22 x 15.5, full bleed and deckled edges. Limited edition of 25. Cost is $30, with $10 shipping. Pick one up here

Victorine was Edouard Manet’s favorite model. Here we see her sitting in her famous and provocative pose from Le Dejeuner Sur L’herbe, but within a new surrounding. We have a confusing and somewhat surreal scene in which Victorine appears to be leaning upon an abstracted double-decker bus which now conforms into a new dimensional plane. From behind, a sun-crowned giraffe approaches possibly with a message, while a city scape appears from behind Van Gogh’s olive trees. The giraffe represents communication and vision into the future. Perhaps the giraffe will explain to Victorine the meaning behind her voyage into a new modern world where all objects and images undergo redefinition and a new interpretation.
