Hello, I’m Derek.
I’m originally from Bedfont, which is very near Heathrow airport, but I now live in a really quiet part of the Netherlands. I’ve also lived in Spain, and in Indonesia.
I’m really into making pictures. I’ve made them for The Economist, The Guardian, The Times, Wall Street Journal, Wired, Playboy, Saatchi & Saatchi, Y&R, McGraw-Hill, HSBC, Honda, Vodaphone and Charlie Brooker, among others.
I’ve done lots of digital illustration work for magazines. But in the last few years I've gone mad for drawing, in all its forms. I especially love doing people—conceptual portraiture—portraits with some sort of twist. Maybe you have an idea for something like this? Feel free to let me know about it. Or about anything else. I’m all ears!
