Fall is here again, and with it this year, another Phish fall tour, culminating in a 4 night Las Vegas run for Halloween! Sure to be one of the best runs of the year, Gay Anastasio has once again chosen to celebrate the festivities in poker chip form.
A limited edition of only 300, both sides of this chip feature artwork by the multi-talented Michael Babb (Jiggs Lot)! Ceramic pro quality chips, these are the same kind that casinos use. Graphics are printed right on the chip, no stickers.
While Gay was not certain on doing a chip for this run, inspiration struck him one morning after the Dicks shows in September. Fortunes can be made or lost in Sin City, but after 4 nights there, I think it is safe to say… we are all gonna get our ass handed to us! I had a rough idea for the jackass, brought to life by Jiggs, but what kind of an establishment would use chips like these? On the front we welcome you to “Kitty Malone’s Cabaret and Casino”! Have a drink, play a game, watch the dancers! The smell of mule thick in the air! On the back, that same jackass of a mule kicks you out of town after draining you dry. Order here.
“That rug really tied the room together, did it not?” John Warner has produced an incredibly detailed poster for moe.’s Halloween show at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas. This year’s show is themed The Big Lebowski & this poster is packed with details. This poster is a signed and numbered edition of 200 posters that will be available at the show on 10/31 (morning on 11/1 really) at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas.
Adam Davidoff has been making Phish Coins for a decade now, and has two featured coins and one poker chip, including his newest “Tube” coin that he is sharing on PhanArt.
Adam’s descriptions of his coins and poker chip:
The inspiration for this coin was obviously the opening verse of the Phish classic “Tube” when Trey sings “An asteroid crashed and nothing burned. It made me wonder, do tigers sleep in lily patches? Do rhinos run from thunder?” To depict this opening verse of the song, I placed a tiger sleeping amongst some tiger lilies alongside a body of water containing a patch of lily pads. An asteroid is crashing into the mountain, yet nothing burns.
On the obverse side of the Tube Coin, a rhinoceros runs across the African savannah. Storm clouds are moving in quickly, and two bolts of lightning are crashing down, causing the rhino to run for its life.
The Tube Coin is 1.75″ in diameter, 3mm in thickness, has a reeded edge like a quarter, and has an antique silver finish. Both sides of the Tube Coin are presented in dramatic 3-D relief.
For the Hampton 2013 Coin, I chose to go with a design that pays homage to the reflecting lake on the south side of the venue. As a nod to the outer space elements in this design, I chose to go with a NASA inspired font, and where better to use that but in Hampton, VA, the home of NASA’s Langley Research Center!
On the flip-side of the Hampton 2013 Coin, I wanted to pay homage to this long-awaited Fall Tour, so I chose to depict the historic “Emancipation Oak” that was an early educational site for Black children in the South, and was also where the first Southern reading of the Emancipation Proclamation was made!
The final element of my design was to pay tribute to the unique architecture of the Hampton Coliseum. Around the outer edge of each side of this coin (as you clearly can see) I created a triangular wedge pattern. This was done to mimic the look of the Mothership from above.

Halloween Poker Chip:
The thinking behind this design was to recreate Boardwalk Hall in a silhouetted haunted house style. Two vultures flank the venue overhead, and Axilla the witch flies past the Halloween crescent moon. There are 31 stars in the sky, and 31 bay windows along the boardwalk at the bottom of the venue, and the $31 denomination of course!
On the flip-side of the Halloween 2013 Poker Chip, I symbolized a verse from the song Guelah Papyrus: “So maybe I could be a fly… and feed arachnid as I die.” A spider waits, ready to pounce on a fly that has been caught in its web. There is also an orange hourglass (a Sand reference) on the body of this spider.
The Hampton 2013 Fall Tour Coin marks the 2nd coin I have made for a run at Hampton Coliseum. As a nod to the outer space elements in this design, I chose to go with a NASA inspired font, and where better to use that but in Hampton, VA, the home of NASA’s Langley Research Center.

What a year 2013 was! Not only was it one of the best Phish years on record, but there was some incredible Phish inspired art that set the bar high for future years. This is not just a coincidence – when the band is at the top of their game, it rubs off on the fans and art community. Summer Shakedowns were good (despite the rain) and Dicks and Fall Tour led to some of the most memorable Shakedowns in 3.0, with the highlight of them all being the PhanArt Poster and Pin Exhibition in Atlantic City on November 2nd.
This list was compiled based on feedback received through the site, on tour, and through Facebook and Twitter. Fans were asked in the past month what was some of the best Phish related (non-official) art of 2013 and they responded. I took all suggestions into account and looked at the list and came up with the top 13, as well as the honorable mentions.Today we continue the Best of PhanArt 2013 with a look at the art coming in at numbers 7-13. Be sure to check out Part 1 from yesterday.
Remember, the Phanart made in 2013 was amazing and the following is just some of the best. If you think something was overlooked, share what was missed below in the comments section below.
#13 Erin Cadigan’s Halloween poster “Le P(h)oisson Deguisement d’ Hallowe’en Metropole de Atlantique“
Erin’s Halloween print, her third to feature a mermaid, was inspired by vintage French horror film posters. Note the record with the label (translated) “Phish’s musical costume, Atlantic City.” Who knew their costume would be their own music? Another fabulous poster from Erin.
#12 Julius/Dr J shirts by Brian Zuckerberg, Chris Ehrens, Shawn Dos Santos and Noah Phence
Hugely popular on tour all year, Dr. J is finally connected to “Julius” with proper art and an in your face palmed basketball. Expect to see folks wearing this shirt on tour for years to come.
#11 Jiggs Hampton Poster
Jiggs has been one of the foremost artists to make a name for himself in 3.0, and his posters over the past few years are a strong part of that. His Hampton poster included an intricate representation of the dates and location for the Fall Tour opener. Another sold out poster from Jiggs – job well done!
#10 Andrew Bryant ‘Band in Lights’ pin
When I talked to pinners about some of the best of the year, this was one that kept coming up, with resounding support for the design. Mini-silhouettes of the band under Kuroda’s lights, in a limited edition of 100, with a perfect quote from “Scents and Subtle Sounds” to cap it off – brilliant. He’s now up to a fourth version of the pin, with pin collectors clamoring for all editions.
#9 Tripp’s Commerce City Triptych
We all love Tripp’s Prints! Tripp has posters for nearly every show, and with his Commerce City Triptych, he gave fans a trio to drool over. Rising fish in the morning, shining at noon and setting in the evening are represented in his prints, with the scenic mountains drawn colorfully and three-dimensionally – perfect for a three-poster set for a perfect three night run at Dick’s.
#8 Michael Boyer’s Jerseys
At the Summer in Saratoga Art show on July 6th, fans were amazed at the setup of a different poster for each show of the tour, plus, something new – jerseys with characters from Phish songs as the ‘team’ logo. All summer long, Llamas and Mockingbirds were sold on lot, a hugely popular and incredibly unique piece of art. Boyer put great thought into these, and the quality of the product cannot be understated. Look for more jerseys from Boyer this summer, as well as as profile on the artist coming next week on PhanArt.
This poster surfaced a few days after Brian’s Hampton poster was seen online, and the lights for Boardwalk Hall were an even greater muse for Hill. Brian was on hand to sell his posters at the PhanArt Poster and Pin Exhibition in Atlantic City, with a huge response from fans who took to his representation of Boardwalk Hall, improving on the venue’s already impressive facade and late night light show.
That’s all for Part 2. What made the top 6? Check back tomorrow and find out!

Jay Anastasio has the first Atlantic City art of the year on PhanArt, and it’s a unique and well-priced creation. Jay shares: “I wanted to do these chips in 2010, the first time Phish visited Atlantic City for Halloween, but a lack of funds kept my idea from happening. This time, I was better prepared and I am very happy with how these came out! I am proud to introduce to you, my inaugural piece of show merchandise! These are casino quality chips, no cheap plastic chip with stickers here. Each chip is 10 grams of edge to edge color, unified ceramic, built to last forever.”
“This Ghost is Bustin’ out and ready to get his groove on for 3 nights in Atlantic City, NJ! To commemorate one of the bands favorite holidays, I present to you this Limited Edition poker chip. Phish + Fall + Halloween = PHALLOWEEN! The denomination is 30, to honor the number of years our favorite band has been around. Venue, city, and dates are all featured over both sides. These will be authentic casino style chips, 39mm wide(about 1.5 inches), 3mm thick, made of ceramic and weigh 10 grams each. They are printed on the front and the back, with edge band detail. You can order below, but I will of course be in Atlantic City to sell these in person. Only 300 made! Cost is $10 each, plus shipping.”
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
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
This deer haunts our dreams. Now it haunts yours. Merry Phishmas!
Brooms in a field. Simple and done well. Classic Kerrigan.
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!
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.
A great font + the most iconic of NYC images + Phish = Phreedom. An amazing senior project and entry into the world of PhanArt
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?
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.
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…………………..
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.
