My husband, Tony, is a HUGE Phish fan. He’s been to over 100 shows and counting. Luckily, when I met him Phish was on a break. (I think he was bored, since his favorite band wasn’t touring.) I soon found out that this music is very important to him. Don’t get me wrong, I love music, but didn’t understand the deep connection he had with this band and their concerts.
When Phish got back together, we went to some shows together and I was hooked. The energy of the crowd was incredible… the lights… the moments when the music takes your heart and aligns it with the beat of the universe… I wish we could afford to tour or go to more shows together as it was such a bonding experience (ahem: buy my art please), especially, since I’m starting to learn when to throw the glow sticks!
(The piece above is a digitally altered version of the first Fishman donut wearing owl I did in 2014. I wanted this owl print to look happier, with more harmonious colors.)
(The middle image below is a version of one of my ram collage prints that I digitally altered with Fishman doughnuts. A couple of Phish fans in New Jersey decorated their baby girl’s nursery with one of the Phish owl prints and wanted something else to match it.)

So, it’s a good thing I am now a Phish fan. I’m not sure we would be married right now if I’d decided that I didn’t like this band, right Tony? Lol. We are even raising a cute, little Phish fan together now.
If you want me to add Fishman donuts to one of my existing designs or want to purchase a print please visit my shop. If you are interested in licensing one of my images (The happy baby owl would look so cute on a kids’ shirt, wouldn’t it?) please contact me.
