ICONIC ARTIST IOANNIS TO RELEASE 5 NEW LED ZEPPELIN PRINTS

New Prints Celebrate the Soft Cover Release of the Book HOW LED ZEPPELIN BECAME THE BIGGEST BAND IN THE WORLD
 

There are few album cover artists more important than the man known only as IOANNIS (STYX, LYNYRD SKYNYRD, THE ALLMAN BROTHERS).  Now, just in time for the holidays the talented artist is releasing five new LED ZEPPELIN prints. 
 
In 2011, IOANNIS created the cover art for the book HOW LED ZEPPELIN BECAME THE BIGGEST BAND IN THE WORLD by Denny Somach and Carol Miller.  To coincide with the book’s initial release IOANNIS created five limited edition fine prints, as well as a portfolio set of his work with LED ZEPPELIN.  All have nearly sold out with only a few copies remaining. 
 
IOANNIS also sold six of his 16 original LED ZEPPELIN paints featured in the book, including one of John Bonham, which was purchased by QUIET RIOT drummer Frankie Banali, a friend, a supporter and a rabid LED ZEPPELIN fan.   Now
, the talented artist is releasing five new limited edition LED ZEPPELIN prints to celebrate the soft-cover release of the book. 
 
“I am releasing a second portfolio of 5 new prints to support this, for the holidays, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to cancer research, a cause close to my heart,” IOANNIS commented. “We accept all forms of payments and even offer term payment options your support it greatly appreciated.”

WIZARDS OF WINTER Present Upcoming Album Artwork

Wednesday, July 23, 2014
Categories: 
Symphonic rockers The Wizards of Winter and legendary record cover artist Ioannis are happy to present the official cover art for the The Wizards of Winter’s self-titled album, to be released this Fall. 
 
According to artist Ioannis, “I just completed the artwork for the new WIZARDS OF WINTER new album - a talented bunch of individuals that fuse prog symphonic rock with classical and holiday songs to a great result. The goal here was to create a wintery fantasy scene reminiscent of Scandinavian landscapes with just a touch of mysticism and a tip of the hat to Lord Of The Rings, a major book in my teenage years. I hope the art sets the scene to this band’s music and helps the audience along on this voyage.”
 
Fall tour dates – which will feature original members of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra as special guests – are still being finalized. The first single from this album, the instrumental hit "March Of The Metal Soldiers", was released at the end of May. The band is donating a portion of the proceeds from all sales of this track to the Wounded Warrior Project to honour those who have served in the United States military. (Video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krBewQRb4yU)

WIZARDS OF WINTER ART BY IOANNIS

Tuesday, May 6, 2014
Categories: 

Legendary record cover artist Ioannis (Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, King Crimson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bob Weir, Allman Brothers Band, Dream Theater) will be joining forces with The Wizards of Winter to produce cover artwork for their upcoming album to be released later this year. Ioannis will also design merchandise and the tour art for their upcoming 2014 schedule.
Says Ioannis, "I think The Wizards of Winter is an incredibly talented group of individuals and it will be cool to work on their holiday project, so I am really looking forward to doing this."  Plans are also in discussion for additional ventures to be announced later this year.

The Wizards of Winter, the prog-metal-meets-classical rock band that has been hard at work recording their second release, are excited to be working with this iconic artist for the design of their album cover artwork. Ioannis has created the covers of over 170 albums, with his art firmly rooted in fantasy and surrealism. The currently untitled album, produced by Tommy Farese of Trans-Siberian Orchestra fame, promises to continue the band's style of integrating elements of hard rock and classical influences into a distinctive blend of original compositions. "We are honored to have the privilege to work with a creative master like Ioannis,” said Scott Kelly, leader of The Wizards of Winter. “His art work has graced the album covers of so many of the music industry's legendary performers that he too, truly is a legend. When Ioannis contacted us and told us that he really liked our material and wanted to work together, we were really quite surprised given where the band is in its development. It is just another proof point that the Wizards are really beginning to gain some broad recognition. After speaking with Ioannis, Steve Ratchen, one of the other co-founders of the band, and I both found that besides being a very nice and approachable guy, his artistic concepts and marketing directions appear to be exactly what we need at this time to assist us in moving to the next level. We are humbly grateful that he has chosen to work with us and greatly look forward to working with him."
