Head over to Phan Art to check out an interview by Chris Stowell (@chris_22) with Christopher Pike, known to forum users as @CaptainPookie. Among his many artistic endeavors, the Captain creates paintings for fans based upon their favorite shows, such as this one based on Bethel 2011:

Pookie was among the volunteers who prepared the scenery on the festival grounds at Superball IX. You can read about Pookie's experiences at Watkins Glen here and here, and you can see more of his paintings in his Facebook photo album.

Link to the interview.

safetymeeting I've been a fan of Mr Pike's work since reading "Remember Me" back in the early 1990's. I had no idea he was a phan and such a wonderful painter, to boot. Hats off to you, and I'm looking forwards to the long-rumored "Terror Tour" trilogy, loosely based on a serial killer that was on tour in summer '93 that was 'stopped' by a particularly moving set by Baby Gramps that got inside his psyche and made him 'light' again. Jerry Garcia also was involved with the transformation.
