During the blackout on Tuesday, June 2, Dustin Karr took the opportunity to collect his thoughts on the movement rising around us, and began to create. The result is a print featuring the Black Power fist surrounded by the BLM chant.
Dustin says of the print:
The BLM movement is near and dear to my heart as I have Black lives in my life, that matter. I wanted to help and so I made these to use at protests throughout the country.
Surrounding the Black Power fist and BLM chant in the background is listed just some of the unarmed Black lives that have been lost to police brutality over the last couple years.
Dustin hopes these prints will help in some small way and can be part of the collective movement for change we are seeking in this country.
Prints are FREE and Dustin only asks that postage is covered. For $15, you can have up to 10prints sent to you. The two-color prints measure 12″x18″, are printed on 100lb French Paper and are signed in an open edition.
Order one here, then only put one in your cart, then leave in the notes how many you want (up to 10).

Star City Art Workshop is a partnership that was founded in the spring of 2017 as a bit of a courting gesture between two artists. Describing what each brings would take too long so let’s just say there is one hell of a synergy when you cross an artist with an outlaw, a nurturer with an activist, a dreamer with a lover. These prints are born out of a basement in Star City, West Virginia.
This entire series featured below is available on eBay.
This print was inspired by ACDC Bag and other visual imagery that feels Phishy Its creators enjoy expanding the visual language associated with the band, and sometimes reach out there to push that. This one has direct lyrical references as well. The feel is edgy, and the time within which this was created was pretty darn edgy, and still is socially and politically. Feel the parallels between the narratives in the early Phish lyrics and the story we are all living in history together. There are references here of great tension and decisiveness, consequence, reality of mythic proportions. And that is where this print operates from. Colors: burnt sienna red and green/yellow smearprint and green.
Many of these prints have a story to tell. The imagery is venue-inspired with the Georgia Peach.
Amy’s Farm was the first in a series of nine throwback prints for early shows, now referred to as the “Phish 1.0” era.
This print features UNH school colors and reference to the theatrics of trampoline jumping on stage. Phish are a beautiful embodiment of theatrical-artist-type musicians and youthfulness. So playful in spirit even when paired with all the intellectual brilliance. There is a reference also to holes here. And just a letting go.
There have been a lot of pieces of phanart that have been donated to benefit charitable organizations in the Phish community, which has led to the ‘3 for $40’ deal that has been run in recent years, netting more than $2,000 for The Mockingbird Foundation. A recent donation of posters from 2003-2004 and 2009-2010 are included in this next offer to benefit Groovesafe.
Groovesafe will be the receipient of monies from this fundraiser, a worthy 501 (c)(3) charitable organization raising money to support a worth cause – a movement within the musical community to bring awareness about unwanted touching and sexual assault at concerts.
Posters by Erin Cadigan, Cody Schibi, Jason Lees and more. Each tube of 3 posters is shipped in a PhanArt MegaTube with stickers and priority shipping. Limit 1 tube per person.
There are only a dozen tubes available so don’t sleep on this opportunity to support Groovesafe!

Artist Victor Stabin has released ‘Fish Pherris Wheel‘, part of his Turtle Series of paintings. Victor was born in Brooklyn and studied art starting as a teen and is inspired by many facets of his own life including his family, an interest in the connection between man and nature, water and the water’s edge, the 19th Century Japanese watercolor print artists and many more influences.
Stabin’s illustrations have appeared in Time, Newsweek, and Rolling Stone, and has to his credit nine postage stamps commissioned by the US Postal service, a mural for RCA/BMG’s headquarters, and the cover of the KISS album, Unmasked. Most recently, he has had four pieces installed at radio station WNYC and his ABC Book Daedal Doodle is on sale at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Stabin and award-winning animator Ben Arthur are currently in production of the animated short which masterfully combines fantastic imagery, tongue-in-cheek storytelling, and vocabulary learning; using the backdrop of public radio. Check out their Kickstarter campaign.
Stabin’s ‘Fish Pherris Wheel’ is now available for purchase. About the piece, in the artist’s words:
“In a parallel utopian universe, a place where world peace is not just a dream, waste is forbidden, ecology is god and economies are built on thrift not theft. There will be abundant surpluses of time and resource; this new world will for the first time give us abilities to reach past old boundaries to exploring new worlds and ultimately give humanity the ability to embrace Phish.
In this universe, humankind awoke and realized the tremendous role that sea life has played in fostering global evolution. To show our aquatic brothers and sisters appreciation, the people of earth build a Fish Pherris Wheel that benignly lifts sea life from their aqueous world into our atmospheric world and as gently returns them to the sea.
The Fish Pherris Wheel became a particularly hot attraction during sunset and sunrise hours, so much so that amphibious creatures (who already had access to atmospheric viewing) such as Walruses, Turtles, Penguins, Horse Shoe Crabs, etc., were only allowed to ride on Tuesdays and alternate weekends.”
