KISS Drum Riser Art

Posted on 09/27/2012
My Name is John Rios- I'm an illustrator and graphic designer and I've worked in the entertainment industry doing stage graphics and backdrops for the last five years. I've been blessed to work with or for some of the most well known bands in the world. A few months ago, I fulfilled a life long dream (doing art for KISS) by being in the right place at the right time to get the opportunity to create a new version of the cats on the KISS drum riser skirt for the tour with Motley Crue. I've been a KISS fan since 1974 so you can imagine how excited I was to be able to do this. I paid extreme attention to detail so as to make sure the new version was 100% KISS authentic. Truth be told, the art was approved without edits. Ironically enough, I also did the set art for Crue Fest II. I am blessed. Rock on KISS!! Fan Forever.... John
