There were over 100 submissions to PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish related to the 4 band members, Trey, Jon, Mike and Page, but one stood out, garnering over 40 submissions of art that were ultimately used in the book. Of these many, we will share one or two each week during this Winter TAB Tour. The first piece is by Louis Arzonico, who captures through a most creative lens the likeness of The Bad Liuetenant. Made around 1999, Louis gets very visual and psychedelic in a cartoony Muppet take on our favorite gutiar player Big Red. The second piece was submitted by Noah Phence, who’s sticker and PhanArt collection was one of the top 5 contributers to the book, adding at 100-150 pieces of unique art that he made or collected over the course of his pre-breakup touring. Simply put, Trey is Good, but he is also Caspian, which means Trey is Fuckerpants. At some points of the later 1.0 and much of 2.0, you could make an argument for the latter and not the former, but he still generates a great deal of love beyond the judgement of a few.
Peter Washburn and Phil Luong made these posters as a way to commemorate Phish’s 2010 Summer Tour as well as the July 3rd and 4th, 2010 shows in Alpharetta, Georgia. They are printed on thick card stock and measure 13″ x 18.75″.
For the Summer Tour poster we used a shillouette theme with the Tweezer lyrics “Step Into the Freezer” as a juxtaposition to “Summer Tour” as well as an ironic way to escape the sweltering heat of the summer and enter the heat of the planet we know as “Phish”.
We created the posters for the July 3rd and 4th, 2010 shows in Atlanta (Alpharetta) to celebrate the nation’s birthday with a play on the very famous World War I Army recruitment made by James Montgomery Flagg in 1916. In this case, however, both Trey and Mike are “Uncle Sam” and instead of saying “I Want YOU For U.S. Army” they say “We Want YOU To Be Happy” from the song “Joy”.
Phil is a graphic designer in Jacksonville, FL and Peter is a botanist living in Greenville, SC. They have each been seeing Phish since 1996. The summer tour poster is $15 while the “We want YOU” prints are $20, or get all 3 for $40!
One of the more provocative shirts seen on Phish Tour, although iconic from the classic Rolling Stone Cover are the Trey/Janet ‘I’m Checkin’ ‘Em Out’ shirts. Wookles has resurrected these shirts and is now selling them in his store. Shirts are $20 each and are printed on Gildan Ultra Cotton Stone Blue shirts.
From Justin Wendt, these great shirts are printed on a Preshrunk Gildan 6.1 oz. 100% cotton shirt. You can buy one using the paypal link below, but he will also have these for sale at Toyota Park, Blossom, and Hershey on Leg 1 and Deer Creek and Alpine Leg 2.
Sometimes the youngest phans are well, noobs, sometimes they are cool, and sometimes they blow your mind. Shane Smykla from Ballston Spa is a 15 year old high school student and Phish fan. Completing this canvas print under the tutelage of Jeremy LebeDiker, his art teacher and fellow Phish fan (art from Jeremy coming soon).
Shane got into the Grateful Dead before he started listening to Phish. He fell in love with the band after watching Bittersweet Motel at a friends house after and Allman Brothers/Doobie Brothers show. So far Shane has only seen Phish once, on 8/16/09 at SPAC. (Great first show!) More shows are in the future for Shane this summer.
The painting measures 24″ x 36″ and is done ‘Acrylic Jazz style’ on canvas. He spent a month and a half completing the work. Shane is asking for $160 for this painting, or best offer. You can email him to work out a price for the painting. (email@example.com)
