This one has a bit of a story. As some of you may know, my dad is a trucker and I have been on the road with him since Monday of last week. Needless to say, I have had a lot of time on my hands. This box was a bitch because the only images I have access to are the four solo album covers that the KISS members released (google them) and I decided to make a box out of it. This is what you get when you combine my abilities, a truck, bumpy interstates, and four images. I decided to redraw the KISS members because I have never redrawn something as complex as those, and I wanted to put my skills to the test. Also, I wanted to make a box where I created every single bit of the art.

Hope you like it, cause it took a hell of a lot of work without internet access. Please view in full if you can.

#2, I never thought I'd I would say it, but I just gained a little respect for you. KISS is my favorite band of all time. I actually have 20+ of their albums on my iPod that I've been cycling through to pass the time in the truck. Someday I hope to play Ace in a KISS tribute band.

I really like this :). I like KISS, but I haven't heard all their songs so I wouldn't call myself a fan, lol. Out of the ones I have heard, I looove Beth, why isn't that in this, lol :P

#4 It's the collection of each member's solos.

The only complaint I have about this box is that you didn't include Paul Stanley's "Live to Win"

Pretty cool design man, and a pretty cool band.

#5, I had to shorten the track list of a couple of them so they would fit. I have never actually listened to any of them, so I was just guessing on which would be the best to remove. I plan to try them out soon.

#7 This isn't a complete collection without POaul Stanley's Live to Win. Remove one of Paul's other tracks and add Live to Win. It's definitely one of his best songs :D

I just did a Google search, and Live to Win is from the second Paul Stanley album which isn't even KISS-related haha

#9 Yeah but this box says Solo Collection. I was guessing that meant on their solo albums

#10, Nope. Just the four that kiss released in '78. The Live to Win album was released by Paul Stanley separately from KISS.

Nice job on this one BW! KISS runs in my family, my Dad even has some old KISS action figures stashed away somewhere...

#12, Haha that's awesome. I seriously just listened to 3 albums in a row (KISS, Hotter Than Hell, and Love Gun). Great stuff. I can't wait till I get home today to learn the solo to Shock Me.

I have never listened to this band merely because I never heard of them before... They look scary though. xD
But, I really like this cover, the colors are nice and I more am appreciating it because you've costume made it all and that shows that you've some good skills, it's always good to put your skills to the test and then get good results that show you how important it is to push your limits. Good job on this cover.

I don't anything about KISS's music, but this is well made.

Really nice simplistic design. Like #16, I really don't know KISS but I think it's well executed and feels really rock musicesque. I think putting your skills to the test paid off.

I think a little more could have been done with the background though. It's a tad bland in that respect.

I love this box, but I hate the font. So conflicted. :(

#20, I may eventually update with a new font. Like I said, I had no internet access so I had to use a windows default font.

Nice box. But something about Ace Frehley on the front looks a little odd.
