Auction of 3 Colorado Posters for Mockingbird

To commemorate the 3 nights of Phish at Dick’s this past weekend, we have three posters up for auction to benefit Mockingbird

Isadora Bullock – Titled “Steep” and commemorating the shows Phish played in Telluride in 2010, this poster measures 15″ x 21.5″, in a 3 color linocut limited edition of 125. Original cost was $20. This poster has since sold out!

Vinny Naro – This poster was made, as all Vinny’s work is, by hand with pen and ink. A limited run of posters was made for Red Rocks and all have sold out. The intricate detail and style of Naro’s artistry make it rare, artfully crafted concert poster art.

Kevin Mand – About the poster: The original work was done on cold press illustration board with pigment liner pens. Kevin notes that he chose to do the black and white point-o-lism as he feels it relates to how Phish is to him, as well as it is a very intricate and timeconsuming process. After hiking around Telluride for a bit he brainstormed this idea at the town park stage thinking about the “bands view”. The prints where done digitally on 12pt semi-gloss paper, with only 250 done, they are all signed and numbered.

All proceeds from this auction will benefit the Mockingbird Foundation, which supports music education across the country. Check out www.mbird.org for more info.

The posters are wrapped in craft paper and shipped in a sealed poster tube.

PhanArt’s Best of 2010

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

#10 Deer Creek Friday the 13th by lotlifestyle.com

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

#9 Isadora Bullock Deer Creek

This deer haunts our dreams. Now it haunts yours. Merry Phishmas!

#8 Ryan Kerrigan Broomfield

Brooms in a field. Simple and done well. Classic Kerrigan.

#7 Hartford Whalers/Wilson shirt

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!

#6 Bruce Horan’s SPAM SPAC

A street art feel and a play on words leads to a simple print that is anything but simple. Horan’s dedication to the craft is seen in the level of detail in this print.

#5 Eric Weber’s ‘Phreedom’

A great font + the most iconic of NYC images + Phish = Phreedom. An amazing senior project and entry into the world of PhanArt

#4 Brother shirt by UnoClay

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?

#3 AJ Masthay MSG

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.

#2 Lizzy Layne’s Fuck Your Face

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.

and the #1 piece of PhanArt in 2010 is…………………..

#1 Vinny Naro’s Halloween Poster

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.

The 12×16″ variants on 100lb. cover stock are $20.00 price includes shipping. A portion of the proceeds will go to Mockingbird. This poster is PhanArt Approved and PhanArt

Vinny Naro’s “Immortality”

Immortality“, a 16″ x 25” giclee art print on 250 gsm archival rag paper is the latest from Vinny Naro. In a limited edition of 25, “Immortality” is signed, numbered, and with COA. Only 20 are available. Vinny will be making different screen printed color variants on black paper, each to be released in batches of 20 or so this winter.

Based on Leonardo DaVinci’sVitruvian Man drawing and its proportions, this is sci-fi concept art to the max! Made to look like it is a lost page (pg.420!) from DaVinci’s own notebook; this describes cryonic re-animation with a mechanical body. It also is a depiction of my own artistic metamorphosis. The Secret of Immortality is written in ASCII binary, backwards and the print is riddled with tons of tiny details.

These are $52.00 includes shipping. Send paypal to vinnynaro@yahoo.com

There are also 12×18″ indigo press variants available; not signed or numbered, on 100lb. uncoated stock for $20 (includes shipping) or $10 in person.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Mockingbird.
