New from PhanArt in 2011 is our weekly Friday Feature: This Week in PhanArt History. Each piece of art we share is from days of Phish in the past, typically from the 1.0 and 2.0 eras, something of note that fans of all ages can appreciate that is featured in the book PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish, with some commentary on the piece by PhanArt Pete. If there is a piece of art or genre of PhanArt you would like to see, leave a suggestion in the comments below.
Submitted by Frank and Christine Cortazzo, this sticker takes the iconic ‘Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas’ and changed it to ‘We Come for Fabulous Phish’

By Jason Lees, This Joker poster has a playing card design with reflections on both side of the joker in his 3-coned cap, hoisting a martini with his purple humpback whake and showing his cards: 15, 16, 17, the April 2004 dates.
Isadora Bullock‘s Elvis poster has The King riding The Famous Mockingbird into outer space (where many of us would have blasted off to, had the shows not been a barrel of meh) holding The Helping Friendly Book.
Troy Alexander, Canadian artist extraordinaire and Eh-List Phish fan made numerous amazing posters of this caliber in the Phish 2.0 era. The detail on the upside down faces, mandalas in the center and vivid coloring made this an easy collectors item in the Spring of 2004
