WHY THE MONIKER CREATIVE SCHISM?

CreativeSchism.com (a.k.a. the art of Phil Fensterer).

Creative Schism is a moniker I adopted to explain why you see different styles of art from one artist. I enjoy the darker and more surreal works that inspire to create some weird but freeing artwork. At the same time, I have fallen in love with the gig poster side of illustration, or if you prefer, the gig life.

Since this duality has caused a division or schism, if you will, in which direction I would like to pursue as both styles are very different from each other, I chose to do both, why not? Hence the name Creative Schism.

Originally from the 505 (Albuquqerque, NM) now currently creating in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, expanding the Creative Schism name internationally creating gig posters, book covers and album art plus whatever else strikes a client's fancy. I am always evoloving so styles that I create one moment can vary a bit the next. But there is an overall vibe that's unmistakably evident it was my original art/design.

Clients have varied from smaller metal bands internationally as well as locally to well known music acts such as The String Cheese Incident, Slightly Stoopid, 311 and more. I also created artwork for varied events including benefit comedic shows featuring well known comedians Marc Maron and Jim Norton. No matter the event if you need a limited edition collectible poster, album art, book covers or just need some original artwork and are looking for some info on how to get started just let me know.
