Remember the days when you picked up a record that you never heard before just because it had an amazing cover? Ioannis has been designing those covers since 1983. He is one of the few artists whose work spans multiple genres and countless artists. From jam bands to classic rock, prog, metal, 80’s rock, blues and so much more, he’s done it all and has the stories to tell about it. I am so proud to introduce a new series of conversations that will appear every few months where Ioannis takes us Inside The Cover.
For this first episode, we do an overview of some of the genres we’ll be concentrating on in further installments. Please click the PLAY icon below, and scroll down for a better look at the artwork we talk about in Episode 1 of Inside the Cover with Ioannis.
