Eric Weber was last featured on PhanArt with his NYE 2010 poster “Phreedom“. His latest creation is a pin with a flying fish and a banner above that reads “Surrender to the Phlow”. These pins are 2.25″ wide, made of diecast metal with an antique silver finish and have rubber backings. The cost for the pin is $15 with free 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
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!
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.
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.
From the newest addition to the PhanArt Family, Eric Weber:
My name is Eric Weber and I hail from Buffalo Grove, a northwest suburb of Chicago. I’m 22 years old and have been a fan of Phish for a couple of years now, and was finally able to tour and see the boys perform for the first time in summer of 09. Phish is my favorite band, and I love the fun and creative community that surrounds them. I’m graduating from Southern Illinois University this December, majoring in graphic design.
This poster was designed as part of my senior thesis where I designed a poster, t-shirt, and ticket stub for moe., Yonder (Mountain String Band), and Phish’s New Year’s Eve runs. Given that their shows are in New York this year, I figured I would give lady liberty a little makeover. This poster is sold out!
