I’m excited to announce that this weekend I’ll be participating in the “Space Funk” charity show in Hampton, VA! For this show I have pulled a wide range of my prints from over the years, many of which are sold out. I will be donating a percentage of my archive sales to the “Space Funk” charities and they also have some select prints that will be available through their charity auction. Can’t wait to see you all in Hampton!
Secrets of the Pyramids for Phish at Dicks. LE of 100. 4 layers. A bunch of variants. The drop will be Thursday 8/30 at 9 PM EST right here at www.isadorabullock.com
For Phish’s 11th festival, I decided to do something different. I made a set of 3 smaller prints printed from one block. With these prints I experimented with color theory and optical illusion. There is no main edition, instead there are a wide range of variants throughout the color spectrum.
Curveball being cancelled was heavy for all of us for different reasons. It was likely the heaviest for the band. I personally relate to all of the artists, official and unofficial, who created art for this event and weren’t able to share it with the community they love. The art installations, the prints, the shirts, the gifts, everything that people put energy into that was Curveball related. The moment I heard about the festival cancellation I also cancelled my print release. After encouragement this weekend from friends and collectors I’ve decided I will release this set of prints on my website tonight at 9pm. I will also be donating a percentage of the proceeds to the Flood Relief in NY. Phish will surely plan another festival for us all and for now this is the best we can do to move forward after the great curve. Thank you as always for your continued support.
Tower Jam III 15 years ago at Loring Air Force Base, Phish played a secret set on top of an abandon control tower. This set is referred to as the Tower Jam.

I will release it on my website on the 15th anniversary, this Friday August 3rd at 2pm EST. This print will be a limited edition of 75 with a selection of rare variants.

“Kaleidoscopic, fantastic images surged in on me, alternating, variegated, opening and then closing themselves in circles and spirals, exploding in colored fountains, rearranging and hybridizing themselves in constant flux.” – Albert Hoffmann, Bicycle Day journal entry.

The Carrion Crow is my second Grateful Dead inspired print. Limited edition of 75, measuring 15×22, it’s a 3 layer linocut print (the 1st layer is a fade). For this print I was inspired by the song Mountains of the Moon, and focused on the Carrion Crow as well as the lyric “white wheat waving in the wind” to create a hops inspired homage to the Grateful Dead. I took extra time to create more color variants and smaller edition sizes to offer a variety of rare and unique prints. Over 60 were donated to Screens n Suds to raise funds for The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, The Mockingbird Foundation, and Alzheimer’s Association.
