John Rios and his rock n roll pumpkins

John Rios is an exceptional, self-taught graphic artist. He’s done the best character drawings I’ve ever seen for decades.  John Rios has also done backdrops for tons of concert tours including Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent, Eminem and Motley Crue.  He’s also done graphic work for a bunch more bands… even designing inflatables! John Rios is an innately creative being.  recently, John said, “I think I’ll carve Halloween pumpkins.”  As usual, the results were phenomenal.

We invited John into the WCSX studios to do a time-lapse video of his carving process (no pressure lol).  John created two rock n roll pumpkins for us: Gene Simmons of KISS and an Alice Cooper art design pumpkin. John Rios is bringing his love of Halloween to YOUR parties!  Hit John up on INSTAGRAM or FACEBOOK… John Rios’ Designs.  You can find out about hiring John to come to your party and do a live carving.  What a prize for a lucky attendee to take home!  John let me keep the pumpkins he carved (THANK YOU!)  I CAREFULLY carved the back out of the Alice Cooper pumpkin so we could light it UP!

Check out the video and scroll down for pics of some of John Rios’ spectacular pumpkin carvings and favorite Halloween-themed art!   We also did an artist spotlight on John.  CLICK HERE to check out John’s history and more of his art!
