2013 Atlantic City Poster Art

Colors are approximate - 11 x 17
I thought I would show you the art for my 2013 Atlantic City poster. I decided to take a slightly more traditional approach with this one, except for the paper. This will be a 5 color print on metallic gold paper. The size will be 11 x 17, and this will be a nice heavy stock. This will be a run of 100. We are still working on the Hampton printing, so I will eventually release the specific paper and ink details closer to press time. The graphic above is an approximation of the final colors. Since the paper is difficult to photograph, I used a golden yellow to represent it here. The actual color will be a darker, sparkly uniform-gold color.

There are a couple of details representing the history of our favorite band, starting with the border. There are 30 individual leaves (...you don't have to count them...) in the border and scattered around the image - representing 30 years of Phish. Boardwalk Hall reminds me of times long ago, so I went with a prohibition-era police truck. Instead of hauling away hootch, the cops are hauling away the past 7 Halloween "musical costumes" in the form of pumpkins.

Stay tuned for updates on this one. I can't promise there will be an online sale of these because I just don't know if there will be time to get them mailed out to you prior to the run. They will definitely be available in Atlantic City. At this time we have a special variant planned, and I will release those details later.
