Phanart: The Art of the Fans of Phish

PHISH PHANS Artwork (and more) Documented!

Hello Phriends. Today I'm very excited! This week the official announcement was made regarding a book that I've been waiting for for about 4 years now: Phanart: The Art of the Fans of Phish. One of the reasons I'm so excited is because at least two of my pieces will be represented in the book (not necessarily the ones shown here).

Phanart: The Art of the Fans of Phish is complete! With more than 1600 pieces of Phish fan created art, over 30 essays, and numerous trips down memory lane through 400 full-color pages, the book stands to be one of the most unique and original creations that exhibits the talents of the Phish fan community.

This incredibly collaborative effort is ready to share with Phish fans everywhere. We believe there is a large audience for this book, and we want Phish fans and art lovers to be able to receive copies of the first printing of the book. That being said, we need to gauge your interest and we would like you to sign-up to confirm your interest in purchasing this book when it becomes available. No payment is required now -- we are simply interested in estimating the volume of a first print run. The only information required is your first and last name, the state you live in, and your email address. All those who sign-up will receive a hand-numbered and signed 1st edition of the book.

This book has over 400 full-color pages, and the price range for Phanart: The Art of the Fans of Phish is estimated to be between $50 and $75. This price range is based upon the initial list pricing for two books that are similar in nature, topic, size, and material. This is an estimate; it could be more, it could be less.

Phanart: The Art of the Fans of Phish is not for profit. All proceeds benefit The Mockingbird Foundation for music education. Thank you for your support, your contributions to the book, and your interest in maintaining the vitality of the Phish community!

Below is a piece I designed specifically for Phish Phans. The idea was that you get your portrait on the poster along with the date and location of your favorite show!

Here are a few great phish cover songs....I love when they cover folks! (some of these are long tunes, they may take a moment to load).
