Derek is a Denver based artist who has been creating illustrations his whole life. Growing up around comic books, he knew his passion was to create work that would tell stories. This ultimately resulted in his biggest project yet, “Manifest : Future”, a comic book series he self-published, wrote, illustrated and colored. Over the years, he has premiered new issues and individual work at various Comic Conventions around the nation, such as Denver, Salt Lake City and Colorado Springs to name a few. His hope is to catch a lucky break in the comic or video game industries and draw pictures for a living!
