A new artist spotted on lot at Dick’s, Lulu, has created a unique ‘Dicktych’ double print to commemorate the shows this past Labor Day Weekend.
“This poster set was hand silkscreened with 4 colors for the Labor Day shows of 2012. It’s the original Dicktych (Diptych) of 2012. The left half entices the Colorado Spirit and the sport of Phishing for all. While, the corresponding right half, depicts a fish peering into the snorkel mask of the left half. Fluorescent orange, green and purple give this Dicktych a lasting vibrant appeal.”
There are two sets left while Lulu will be selling the remainder of the poster at right separatel. The set costs $45 with free shipping while the right poster costs $25 with free shipping. Each poster is signed and numbered. Lulu has offered to donate a set of these prints to benefit The Mockingbird Foundation.
“Back on the Train” by Michael Ortiz of Like Minded Productions is released in conjunction with the Phish shows at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City Colorado. The poster is a follow up to the last two posters Michael Ortiz designed in conjunction with the band. The posters are a great combination of Colorado landscape and the band. The limited edition series of posters are numbered out of 80 and are giclee prints done on 210 gram Textured fine art paper measuring 17″ x 22″. Each print has deckled edges and are signed and numbered by Michael Ortiz. Prints are available at $30.00
This weekend marks, not only the return of our favourite band to Colorado for consecutive Labour Day runs, but also my 100th Phish show! Anticipating a memorable tour-closing run, and a personal milestone, I created a print to commemorate the never-ending splendor that is Live Phish. Rocky Mountain ReadIcculus is a limited edition screen print run of 150 on archival 100lb Cougar paper (24″ x 18″), all signed and numbered. Transposing a scene from the epics of Gamehenge to Colourful Colorado, we are reminded to read the words of the great and knowledgeable Icculus: The Helping Friendly Book. Here, Icculus appears a top the Rockies and calls on his faithful friend the Famous Mockingbird to deliver the HFB to the good people of Denver.
Price is $35 including shipping/handling in a reinforced postertube to anywhere in the US/Canada. I wanted to send this announcement before the shows hit, so, if you’re interested, you can preorder now or look out for me in the lots… whichever is easiest for you. I’ll take requests for numbers on a first come-first serve basis, and will ship all orders within two days of receiving payment. Prints will be available for $25 in the lots at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park this Saturday and Sunday (I think I’ll take Friday night off). If you miss me at the shows and prints remain, I will be happy to send you one for the same $25 (you’ll just have to pick up the $10 shipping). And, as always, all subscribers (who have purchased at least four consecutive prints) will be receiving free shipping (and of course, you’ll receive the same number print that you’ve gotten in the past); just remind me when you send payment.
*For anyone that would like to become a subscriber, I am happy to reserve the same print number for you (as long as it’s still available) and guarantee you free shipping for every print after four purchased. Please just let me know…

Chicago artist Tim Ripley’s Commerce City poster is a fantastically vibrant print measuring 22″ x 16″,done in five colors for this hand pulled screen print. The poster is signed and numbered in an edition of 242 on 150 lb acid free 30% post consumer recycled paper.
Part of Ripley’s style is to draw images into the design to be found later on. In “Phoxomoxoa” there are 15 tiny hidden images of animals referencing Phish song titles and a tiny portrait of the artist.
Tim will be on lot at Commerce City for all three shows, where the poster costs $25. If you aren’t going to the shows and still want to get one, email timothyripley (at) hotmail.com and pick one up for $32, which includes shipping.
