You read that right. Artist Eric Hanson, one of the first artists profiled on PhanArt.net in 2009 has unearthed original prints he made for Big Cypress in 1999. These are Big Cypress originals – not reprints. Included for sale are the following: 25 black, 25 blue, and 25 purple of Big Cypress posters, all unsigned and unnumbered (the green variant sold out at BC), these are the last remaining prints among the 2000 prints that were made for the Big Cypress show. All these posters were screen printed on hemp paper. Few are found on Ebay, so you have a prime chance to pick up some original Phanart from Big Cypress, all for $25. Eric has offered $4 of each sale to benefit The Mockingbird Foundation, making for a very generous donation.
But wait, there’s more! Eric also found one last complete set of four Big Cypress Posters that were signed and numbered. With only the first 500 prints of the 2000 prints signed and numbered (show time hit and he never found time to give the rest numbers or signatures), this set of four, is, in Eric’s words, “Pretty special and the last one I have for sale. I don’t even have a complete set myself. This should be sold as a complete set by silent auction. You can keep 100% of this sale for the Mockingbird Foundation. Hopefully it brings in a high bidder.” These will be auctioned off at a later date. Interested? Inquire within by commenting below.
But wait, there’s even MORE! Eric (whose art can be see in the book PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish) has donated 20 Viva Las Vegas Posters from the February 2003 shows at Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas. These 20 are part of an original series of 250 signed and numbered prints, color reproductions of original artwork. These posters are also $25 and $4 of each sale will benefit The Mockingbird Foundation. As Eric says, “I would really just like people to get them into their collections instead of sitting in the dark.” Eric is sharing some great, rare art from 1999 and 2003 at one of the great events of the summer (that isn’t a Phish show).
