When Wookies Attack: Stickers from Eric Wyman

Eric Wyman is a graphic designer who lives in Portsmouth, NH.  His first show was in 1992 and although he didn’t make it to Hampton, he was looking online for imagery of what took place.  One search turned up a photo of two heads holding signs looking for tickets. One said “I HATE PHISH”. When a commenter pointed out the guy in the picture was demanding restitution for being photographed, the marriage with the wookie took place. It’s sarcastic, just like the sign.

wook_uno

It’s been a theme Eric constantly plays with since. You can see a couple of desktop images that he has created for some other treatments of the wook. The designs are created in a fun and playful spirit.  These stickers are 1 for $2, 3 for $5 and 10 for $15. Eric can also do magnets for an extra $1 each. please specify that in your paypal-age

Lot Gear for the Youngest Phans – You Enjoy Me Clothing

As Phish fans get older, we wind up settling down, getting married, and start making babies.  As surprising as not-surprising, Phish fans have started marketing lot goods to parents of future Phish fans.

Created by Dave Ginsberg, a 170+ show veteran who just welcomed his first child into the world recently, the collection of Baby clothes seen below can be put on onesies and toddler t’s.

Dave and his wife Dana got the idea from buying every onesie from drygoods for our 3 nieces over the years.  They thought ‘Why not create some lot style onesies we’d buy ourselves?’  Together, Dave and Dana came up with over 30 designs, with Dave personal fave ” I came from my daddy’s BBJ”, as it is only for hardcore fans and worth the reaction when someone gets it.

They made a small trial batch for Hampton of four original designs: ‘You Enjoy Me’, ‘I love to take a bath’, ‘I sleep diagonal in my crib’, and ‘Fishman’s my daddy’. They were gone before they even left the hotel. Over the summer Dave sold 100+ over just a few shows. More designs were printed for summer tour and even more for this coming fall tour.

Dave and Dana recently welcomed their 1st child into this world…Luke Phisher Ginsberg. You can expect to see him as feature model of youenjoyme, and we encourage fans to post pics of your little ones in YouEnjoyMe gear!

The cost for each of these 1 for $15, 2 for $25, with $5 shipping on all orders.

Visit www.youenjoyme.com to pick one up – $15 for each shirt/onesie.  Make sure you specify what the order is for!

Cactus shirts, by Drew Fioravanti

Simple, Funky, Orange, Cactusy.  Those are four words that describe Drew Fioravanti’s Cactus shirts.

I saw these in Great Woods this summer and found the design and subtlety to be spot on. Drew took a simple idea and made it a lot staple.

Eric Hanson: Teacher, PhanArtist

Eric Hanson is a High School Graphic Design and Multimedia teacher living in Whitefish, Montana. He made some amazing posters for Big Cypress, 12/31/02 and Vegas ’03, as well as others.  Below are some of the prints he has made that are still available.

Since Eric started teaching, his art has been put on the back burner. Recently, he has started raising poison dart frogs and considers it his latest creative outlet, as well as building tropical vivariums.  He spends a great deal of time skiing in the winter and canoeing in the summer.  Eric is happy to say that Montana is an incredible place to call his home. Big Sky Country is indeed an amazing place!

The Big Cypress Poster

Big Cypress, 1999
Big Cypress, 1999

This 11×14″ poster is screen printed on 80lb Hemp stock. The design shows the earth and concert location in florida. A bi-plane is pulling a banner around a Cypress Tree which is juxtaposed with the hour glass of time passing sand from one millennium into the next. In the upper capsule a silhouette of some band members are rocking their way into a fishbowl below. Two thousand posters were made for this Y2K event and probably half of them were sold at the show. These posters are printed in four different colors: forest green, jet black, royal blue, and majestic purple. They look great when hung together on a wall with a glass and clip frame.

This poster is available for $30, delivered flat and in excellent condition via USPS priority mail. Send payments to cehanson@gmail.com via paypal, 10% of all sales benefit the Mockingbird Foundation.

The Reunion Rendezvous

Reunion, 2002
Reunion, 2002

This poster was produced in extremely limited numbers using a unique inkjet process. Only 37 prints were produced, each one signed and numbered and included an artists certificate of authenticity. This 8×10″ poster commemorates the New Years Eve Show in 2003. At the bottom of the poster a page of a book, a fast food trey, a john, and mike are featured in front of the New York city skyline. In the background a cars tires are making contact with a long road leading to a circus with gates that appear to read “MSG.” Some giant chess pieces in the field dot the journey of fans. A pocket watch dangling from the car reads: About time for another trip which can be read starting from any word in the phrase. The border of the poster is decorated with a maze. These posters are no longer available for sale.

Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas, 2003
Viva Las Vegas, 2003

This 11×16″ poster is from a series of 250 prints, each one signed and numbered. It was made to commemorate the Las Vegas show on February 15 and 16, 2003. This richly color copied print features Las Vegas scenery: five elvis characters on a roller coaster, suzy slot machines, a roulette wheel, a classic .99 cent foot long hot dog sign behind a flying hot dog, a pair of rolling dice, billy and his cat walking out toward redrocks, some lizards and more. There are several of these posters available as they were released when the lot poster crackdown began. It was deemed too “phish like” by the undercover authorities roaming the lots, confiscating artwork.

This poster is available for $30, delivered flat and in excellent condition via USPS priority mail.

JM Sahr’s 101 Phish Songs: Detailed and Intricate, like Phish Jams

JM Sahr’s intricate work on his uber-famous ‘101 Songs’, aka ‘Gone Phishin’ is one of the handful of detailed multi-song posters phans made over the years, and as featured in PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish

Sahr grew up in New Hampshire, as well as Colorado, Florida and upstate NY. His first show was 7-22-92 in Nassau, NH, which opened his eyes to many things other than the jamminest band on the face of the earth. Sahr attended RIT and the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. An artist by trade, he now works in the digital world, although his art ambitions are alive and well, while digital design pays the bills.

JM met the band on 4-29-94 at the Boatyard Village Pavilion in Clearwater, Florida. They were nonchalant as they exited the venue like normal patrons, and acted as if they were hanging out with a group of friends. Trey told stories of band hijinx near the bus, Mike was wandering on a golf cart, while Page and Fish were entertaining a small crowd for 15-20 minutes near the entrance of the very unique venue.

Although much more could be written of the bands impact that has both inspired and molded a great portion of his life, he likes to think that he explains this through this work with the poster. Enjoy.

Poster Detail:

PhishPoster_Thumb1

Details on the poster:

Measurements:
The poster measures 23″ X 12″.

The Medium
It is Black and White for many reasons. When I first created the poster the only means I had of duplicating it was through a blueprint copier called a “Black-Line”. They hadn’t developed standard copy machines to accommodate this size yet. If it was full-color, the duplications would have cost me around $12 each to reproduce. Not good for sale on a lot with peeps only wanting to spend between $5-$15 for goods. Back then I was selling them for $5 each or 3 posters for $10. I actually have colored the poster on 3 separate occasions. The first one I did was with colored pencils and came out fantastic. I still have it stashed in my portfolio case. The second one I did was with colored pencils and hi-liters so it would glow under black light. This was and still is my favorite. The third one I did using colors that would have been used during the Rennassaince…..you know, Leonardo DiVinci, Michaelangelo, etc. It came out very “earthy” and warm.

PhishPoster_Thumb2

The Story of Designing it and Pulling It All Together (abridged):
With a stack of papers (about 40 sheets) with names, pictures, scribblings, beer stains, notes and even tears, I began thinking about a setting to incorporate the 103 images I just spent a month developing. Hmmmm. Some sort of theater. Some sort of party scene. Something that will ooze Phish Concert. It needed to have a parking lot, a colonnade of shops, mountains, a river, bridges, and a theater. And of course, about 150 little men and women doing what little men and women do. I decided to take the “alienessque” approach to illustrating the peeps. Afterall, the expressions on their faces were only important if the songs called for it. As in life, actions speak much louder than words. I would draw a bluff. A bluff that housed a sunken theater. Complete with all the amenities mentioned above. For the next 2 months I slept little, held my waiter/bartender position during the day and drew until my hand felt like marshmallow fluff. Mmm, Fluffernutters. Here’s a funny footnote. I did not have a drawing table at the time so I was forced to find a place in the apartment that was infrequently used, but had a good source of light. The stove top. I fastened the paper to a drawing board and used the stove top as my drawing table. The light in the little alcove thing above the stove was perfect and we certainly weren’t doing any kind of cooking as we all worked at a local Restaurant….ok, we weren’t cooking because we didn’t know how. There I said it. 2 months later it was finished. I was stunned, my roommates were stunned, and I firmly believed this was a winner.

Even more detail!
