About this project
Get The Led Out - The Ultimate Art for the Ultimate Rock Band.
Get The Let Out is fully funded!!!
Make Sure to Check Out The Stretch Goal Rewards... so everyone can get even more awesome Get The Led Out goodness!
These limited edition prints by Ioannis are taken straight from his original paintings that were created fo the new book ‘Get The Led Out” by Denny Somach and show the ultimate rock band in all their glory. Producing the art for Get The Led Out: How Led Zeppelin Became the Biggest Band In The World” was a dream come true for Ioannis.
The book is amazing, it’s even offered as a reward, but some of the art work was just screaming to escape the page and be shown it all it’s full-size, unedited, glory.
That’s what this project is all about.
Ioannis has picked his favorite pieces from the from the collection of 16 original painting he did for the book and wants to make them available to fans as limited edition prints.
Who is Ioannis?
Ioannis was born in Athens Greece and emigrated to the US with his family in 1967. From an early age he was influenced by comic books, animation, fantasy art and rock music. After discovering a copy of Roger Dean’s “Views’ he knew he wanted to be a combine his love of art and music by designing record covers.
Since then Ioannis has done covers for over 170 albums for bands including The Allman Brothers, Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult, King Crimson, Uriah Heep, Lynard Skynyrd and Dream Theater. He’s had his work featured in gallery shows worldwide, VH1, MTV and in Michael Ochs “1000 Record Covers” as one of the best covers of all time.
Working on "Get The Led Out: How Led Zeppelin Became The Biggest Band In The World" was a creative highlight for Ioannis and he's excited about sharing this work with his fans.
What's "Get The Led Out: How Led Zeppelin Became The Biggest Band In the World?
Get the Led Out is the ultimate book for the ultimate fan of the ultimate band--Led Zeppelin. Written by Denny Somach and lushly illustrated by Ioannis it begins with a unique day-by-day timeline based on Carol Miller's national radio show of the same name, and provides a behind-the-scenes view, revealing achievements, and adventures big and small.
The Twenty-seven rare, unguarded interviews feature the band members themselves, as well as other musicians and insiders who witnessed it all, including Jason Bonham, Chris Squire (Yes), Joe Perry (Aerosmith), Alice Cooper, and music industry legends Danny Goldberg and Ron Nevinson.
Tell Me About The Prints...
Each 17” X 23” image uses a seven-ink archival process on watercolor museum quality paper and Ioannis will personally supervise each print to insure that it perfectly reproduces his original artwork.
These are fine art quality prints but through the power of Kickstarter Ioannis hopes to be able to provide them to fans at affordable prices that are more rock and roll and less pricey museum.
To do this properly we need to raise the full goal so all of the printing can be done at once and we can keep the cost down and the quality high.
What Are The Rewards?
The rewards for this project are all about getting the awesome work Ioannis has done for "Get The Led Out" into the hands of the fans.
Rewards start with digital wallpaper and limited edition postcard sets.
At the $100 level you can get your own copy of "Get The Led Out" signed and with hand sketch in by Ioannis + the postcard set and the digital wallpaper.
