Details from Derek:

This body of work is inspired by the classic Playboy covers from the 1960's and 1970's. being in elementary school during that time, the Playboy magazine was my introduction to the female body, the July 1970 issue to be specific. since then figure drawing has become a passion of mine and is the focal point of all my work. These pieces are a combination of formative year impressions and fundamentally strong drawings. I chose the grease pencils to work with because quite frankly nothing else would work, fortunately i like working with them. the Playboys themselves i purchased on Ebay. This is my second group of Playboy drawings, the first 40 were in a show in Hamburg Germany at the Feinkunst Kruge.

His new art print is titled Insurmountable. It is signed and numbered offset print, edition of 300. 25" x 12"
