My name is Derek Cooper and I live and work, (well live anyway), from my home in Birmingham, UK.
I enjoy sitting and just drawing what’s in front of me and if I’m influenced by anything its music, nursery rhymes and fairy tales when it comes to ‘manufacturing’ a picture.
Apart from a pencil, I use Xara Designer exclusively to draw, though lately in conjunction with Photoshop and a camera to work the image a little more to remove the clean results that vector often leaves you with.Write to Derek and let him know how you like his work. Check out more of Derek’s work at his website.
