Bio

Born in Providence, RI in 1974, Derek is a New England native and has been drawing since the age of 4. Following in his brother's footseps, he began drawing his own comic books and creating characters at that age. While he does have his degree in graphic design, most of his artistic skills are self-taught. Drawing from a variety of childhood influences that include Godzilla movies, comic books, Star Wars, Saturday morning cartoons and various cinema, Derek enjoys paying homage to these ingredients in his various works. Now residing in Southern California with his wife and daughter, Derek works as a Graphic Designer. From 2007-2017, along with writer Ted Shambaris, self-published the comic books Poverty Pack and Poverty Thrill Adventures under the banner of Afro 'Stache Studios. ​ In late 2017, Derek started his own banner of Owl Eye Comics where he self published "The Maroon", a comic book he both writes and illustrates. ​ In his spare time, Derek will tackle an artistic endeavor on a canvas under the pseudonym "Fourgreen". He also enjoys cinema, trying new foods and a social gathering here and there with his closest of friends.
