Phish Storage Jam

A while back I was approached by a group of collectors who asked me if I would be interested in creating a print based on a particular musical event within an even larger music event.  The folks who wanted to hire me had attended Phish’s Superball IX Festival in Watkin’s Glen, NY in July of 2011.  Long after the main concert field had cleared the band set up inside a “storage unit” erected on site and played some of the most trippy, psychedelic music they have ever played.  Funny thing, you could not really see the band inside the nit, only their shadows working away.  I was immediately interested.  We agreed on one multi-colored print with a glow element.  The more i watched and listened to the storage jam , the more I became convinced that the best way to depict this event was with four prints, each print focusing on a different band member.  I went back to the group and asked permission to change the scope of our engagement.  I received and enthusiastic YES, and I began to draw, cut and print.  Each print measures 12 x 12, glows in the dark, and is embossed with the show information date, location, etc.
