Movin’ On Up!

Filed under: News @ 7:56 pm

I just moved across town to some swanky new digs…Movin’ is a mother, and I ain’t talkin about the “Tuck ya’ in at night” kinda’ mother. I’m talkin’ about the OTHER kind! But now that I’m all settled in, I dig it the most, to say the least. The house was built in the mid 60’s so its got that retro vibe that really flips my switches!

Workwise, I’ve been slingin’ paint like Jackson Pollack with a bad case of the hippy hippy shakes. I’m tryin’ to get 2 more paintings finished up for a couple of gallery shows in Australia this August.

It Takes All Kinds Painting

Both shows are bein’ put on by those fabulous chicks n’ chucks at the Outre’ gallery. Shag, Tim Biskup, Andrew Brandou, Lynne Naylor, Keith Weesner, and Jeff Raglus will also have works in the mid-century show. Should be a flat-out hoot n’ a holler! Go Van Gogh!

Name Droppin’ Fink!

Filed under: News @ 7:57 pm

I met Mr. Josh Agle at last year’s Tiki Oasis in San Diego…that cat is top shelf all the way man! I was happier than a hungry nun at an all-you-can-eat fishfry when he asked me to work up a painting for him. If’n ya wanna’ eyeball it, it’s in the paintings section of this site. Another more recent brush with greatness happened last month…Lee Unkrich, of Pixar directorial fame, hired me to design an invite for his 40th Birthday Bash to be held at the Tonga Room in San Francisco…Wowsville!!

Lee's Big 4-0 Birthday Invitation

Please don’t hate me ’cause I’m a name droppin’ fink, I’m actually quite modest…ask anyone who knows me…Ya know, it’s probably my modesty that makes me so damned Super Great!!!

Outta This World Man!

Filed under: News @ 8:01 pm

I just finished slappin’ some paint on a rocket-shaped decanter produced by the ding-dong daddies at Tiki Farm for DvA gallery’s Anniversary Gala Tiki Show on June 23rd.

Blast Off Vessel

Paintin’ on that crazy shaped vessel was harder that teachin’ a snake to play the bongos, but once she was done, I thought she looked right purty! Go to the DvA site if ya wanna’ peep it for your own self. www.dvagallery.com

Rum-soaked Hootenanny

Filed under: News @ 2:47 pm

What’s kickin’ chickens? Well, I think I’ve just about recovered from the West Coast tiki-lovin’ rum-soaked hootenanny that is the Tiki Oasis. As always it was a real gone gas! I met all kinds of great kittens and cats and reunited with some old friends from past years. Unlike last year, the room crawls were allowed ‘til the wee early brights so you just know a crazy scene ensued! I spent most of my after-hours samplin’ homemade concoctions from room parties and tryin’ to tag my friends with as many DerekArt stickers as possible. I had a blast actin’ like a real nimrod from Finksville! The kings of surf/exotica, the Blue Hawaiians played both Friday and Saturday night on the main stage and man, they completely fried my peanut! Crazy!

Had a great show, sold a whole heap of prints. The official Tiki Oasis 7 show print sold like flippin’ hotcakes! If you couldn’t make the Oasis gig, you just gotta hoof it on over to www.mrretro.com and get one for your own good self. And while your there, be sure to cast your peepers on the three other serigraphs that are brand spankin’ new.

I was also thrilled to the gills when I saw the Tiki Oasis 7 mug. (Designed by me and produced by them amazing cats at MunkTiki) She looked super swell I tells ya! They came in three mod colors and sold out the first night…hot diggity dog!

Tiki Oasis 7 Munktiki Mug

A very special thanky to the fabulous fez-masters of Fez-O-Rama! They debuted the VERY limited edition Derek fez, “The Royal Order of Hipsters” at the Oasis and I’m happy to say, sold a whole heapin’ mess of them crazy beanies. There’s not many left so if’n you wanna be a member of the way-out club that’s for hipsters only, swing on over to www.fez-o-rama.com and snatch ’em up.

Royal Order of Hipsters Fez

One of the highlights of the Tiki Oasis had to be when my friend Ernest Keen made with the maximum nice-nice by givin’ me the coolest pencil drawing I ever did eyeball! Ya see…Ernie is an animator for The Simpsons and he was kind enough to draw me up a scene with a snoozin’ Homer gettin’ pranked royally by Bart n’ Lisa. I love it more than me own Mum… and I loves me Mum! I figure I can sell it on Ebay for at least 22 bucks… I kid, I love…I love, I kid!

Ghoulish Greetins’!

Filed under: News @ 12:31 pm

What have I got cookin’ these days? Well since yur askin’ all nice like I’ll tells ya… Right before I left for San Diego I finished up a crazy print design for the Pearl Hotel in San Francisco.

Pearl Hotel

This classically designed mid-century hotel is gettin’ a facelift and re-openin’ real soon I hear.

Just a few days ago, I made with some nutty art for my friend Eric Rindal, APE guitarist extraordinaire. The art is for his old band, The Swingin’ Tikis.

Swingin' Tikis

I think he’s gonna be using it to advertise an upcomin’ reunion / benefit show. Hopefully, he’ll be slappin’ it on some T-shirts as well… Eric, I wear a large, just so’s ya know.

One other thing I’m really flipped about is the big Tiki Magazine art show Nov. 2. The show, to be held at San Diego’s tikiriffic Bali Hai, is entitled “Tiki Island at the Bali Hai”.

Tiki Island at the Bali Hai

I’ll have at least 2 paintings in the show, and I just finished the final art for a limited-edition show print. You just gotta make it out for this one…It’s sure to be a hum-dum-dinger!!

Halloween is almost here and you just know I dig it the most! Dressin’ up like a goon and creepin’ out lil’ kiddies makes me happier than Bela at an all-you-can-eat blood bank!

What's Cool Ghoul?

So git on out and trick or treat it up, fellow freaks and I’ll catch ya on the flip-flop, baby pop!

Rub-a-Dub-Dub, Thanks for the Grub

Filed under: News @ 5:12 pm

Hope all you cats n’ kittens had a super swell Turkey Day! I traveled back to Arkansas to jaw it up with my hillbilly cuzzins and throw a whole heap of vittles down my neck! Like… yumsville, I can still taste the muskrat gravy n’ possum pie!!

Looks like the rest of the year’s gonna be all about makin’ with the “fine art” jazz. I’ve got a show at the tip top of the new year in Miami at the Harold Golen Gallery.

whistle_bait.jpg

But since I got the smog in the noggin, I keep forgettin’ to find out the exact date in January. Hopefully it’ll be near the endsville so’s I got plenty of time to make with the paints n’ brushes, ya dig? The show will feature me, Mitch O’ Connell, Kirsten Easthope, and Ewik. All them cats is way talented so it should be the show to peep! I’m plannin’ on snappin’ the whip and makin’ the trip so if yer able, bop on over and dump a little culture into your think box!

Me and my biz partner Stuart Sandler have a couple of projects stewin’ in the pot. We’re gonna produce a set of swanky high-ball glasses covered with koo-koo crazy Derekart! 4 glasses in a set with different designs on each glass. You hipsters will dig ‘em the most from coast to coast! Also, I’m startin’ to scratch out some art for a brand new clip art set called “The Castaway Kit”. It’ll be chocked full of Tiki-flavored images and fonts for you to use on your next clambake invitations… Don’t forget to send one to Ginger and Mary-Ann…Hubba, Hubba…Yowzah…..Now, you’re on my wavelength!

no_loitering.jpg

octopus.jpg

Well, I gotta get back to slingin’ paint for the upcoming art show… If I don’t get ‘em all done, I won’t be “well hung” in Miami………Like, wait man, I didn’t mean that like it sounded………….. See ya soon, baboon!

Have a cool yule and a frantic first!

Filed under: News @ 11:30 am

Dig this…In my last news post I clued ya’ to an upcomin’ art show that I was slingin’ paint for. The show was scheduled for Jan 12th in Miami at the fabulous Harold Golen Gallery. But sadly, on Dec. 10th a fire broke out and did a helluva lot of damage to the gallery. What a total bring-down! Hopefully the gallery will be up and running real soonlike. I hear tell the show will open as scheduled on the 12th at a temporary space. Harold didn’t give me the skinny on where that space will be so peep his site to find out where. http://www.haroldgolengallery.com

santa_head.gif

Well, chicks n’ chucks, it’s almost that tic toc on the yearly clock… The fat man drops in and makes with the Ho Ho Ho bit so’s you and yours can cop a squat around the old yule shrub and lay into the boxes and bows like, no tomorrow-style! Hope all you hipsters dig a real gone holiday hoo-haw and latch onto a crazy new year!

At a local flea market I was lucky enough to get my grubby mitts on a copy of an Edd “Kookie” Byrnes 45 entitled “Yulesville”. It completely fried my wig!! It’s like…the night before Christmas bit but with a crazy beat vibe that’s all “Kookie”! Here’s the lyrics so’s you can lay it on your loved ones and dig a crazy cool yule! Enjoysville!

“Yulesville”
‘Twas the night before Christmas
And all thru the pad
Not a hip cat was swingin’
And that’s nowhere dad

The stove was hung-up
In that stocking routine
Like maybe the Fat Man
Would soon make the scene

The kids had fell by and
Just made the street
I was ready for Snoresville
Man, was I beat

When there started a rumble
That came on real frantic
So I opened the window
To figure the panic

I saw this slick rod
That was makin’ fat tracks
Souped up by 8 ponies
All wearin’ hat racks

And a funny old geezer
Was flippin’ his lid
He told em to make it
An man, like they did

They were outta the chute
Makin’ time like a bat
Turnin’ the quarter
In 8 seconds flat

They parked by the smokestack
In bunches and clusters
Then chubby slid down
Comin’ on like gangbusters

His threads were from Cubesville
And I had to chuckle
In front, not in back
Was his ivy-league buckle

The mop on his chin
Had a button down collar
And with that red nose dad
He looked like a baller

Like…he was the squarest
The most absolute
But let’s face it, huh?
Who cares when he left all that loot

He laid the jazz on me
And peeled from the gig
Wailin’ have a cool yule man
Like later…dig?

Crack the whip, I’ll make the trip!

Filed under: News @ 11:59 am

What know Daddy-O? Is you is or is you ain’t havin’ a happy New Year? I surely hope you is…

I got an invite most recent-like from the fabulous Nailors at the M Modern Gallery to take part in their 10th Anniversary Tiki Art Show to be held in Palm Springs, CA on May 10th. I’m as high as a hippy on payday ‘cause they asked me to be the featured artist! Like man…that’s one wild pony to ride! I mean I gotta’ slap paint to wood like my heels was on fire! I’ll have around 15 or 20 paintings framed and ready to hang as well as two limited-edition serigraphs exclusive to M Modern. They cracked the whip, now I gotta make the trip! I tell ya… my attic is a mess! I got so many ideas rollin’ around in my coconut, I don’t know which’ll fly and which’ll die, but it sure will be a blast and a half to figure it all out!

Cereal Killers Book Cover

Also, I hear tell that the Cereal Killers book that I did the cover for will be seein’ the light of day real soon-like. It’s sure to be the maximum utmost! Dr. Viktor Von Kreep of 1313 Magazine notoriety is the ghoul headin’ up the gig. A little bat told me the book signing will be held at the fabulous Van Eaton Galleries in California along with an art show- the pages from the book will be available for sale as limited edition digital prints. I think the show will be held sometime in February. You just gotta drag your creepy carcass out for this one!!

Go Stop Go!

Another book to keep your peepers peeled for is “Kustom Graphics: Hot Rods, Burlesque, and Rock n’ Roll.” published by Korero Books. I’m lucky enough to have 8 pages of my art in the book along with a whole slew of the best low-brow the globe gots to offer. You can get your biscuit snatchers on a copy at http://www.amazon.com.

A.C.E. Comics Expo 2008

If any of you hipsters are gonna be in the Atlanta area February 8th-10th hotfoot it downtown for the ATLANTA COMICS EXPO. The show will be held at the Sheraton. I’ll be there sellin’ prints and talkin’ shop with a whole mess of fellow artists-swing on by and see what’s buzzin, cousin! More know for your noggin can be found at http://www.atlantacomicsexpo.org

Hum-Dum-Dinger!

Filed under: News @ 2:01 pm

What know daddy-o? The old Edison just lit up over my coconut…I didn’t post nary a word on the News Page the whole month of February! Time musta’ flown southlike for the winter…never enough tictocs on the grandpa clock when ya’ need ‘em…

Here we are already makin’ with the March bit and I just now snuck a minute to give ya the skinny-

The A.C.E. show (Atlanta Comics Expo) was a hoot AND a holler! Although it was like a flippin’ ghost town, complete with tumbleweeds, I still had a pretty good show. It was all about the sketches Lebowski! I was scratchin’ out sketches to beat the band for all kinds of cats!

dig_that_crazy_beat.jpg

And the hi-lite of the show by farsville was jawin’ with my next door neighbor the fabulous California-based artist Ragnar!! That cat is one solid Jackson and chocked full head to toe with talent to boot! He’s got a show comin up real soonlike at the MModern gallery in Palm Springs, so if you’re lucky enough to be within diggin’ distance on March 15 drop in and snatch up some Ragnar for your own-self and tell him Derek said howdy-

One other bit that I thought to be a gas at the A.C.E. show was an artist competition held as a fund-raiser for R.I.F. (like…readin’ is fun-damental man) a whole mess of talented cats and kittens slung paint on some KidRobot Munnys and Munny Mobiles. It was a blast seein’ ‘em at the show all together-like. I painted my mobile up like a crazy drunkster being controlled by the lil’ devil in his brain…heavy man, heavy! It was quite a chore makin’ with the drillin’, sandin, painting and occasional wig out, but once I stuck a fork in her she was well worth all the fussin’ n’ fuedin’! I didn’t win no trophy at the show but once my Munny hit the eBay charity auction them bidders lit up the boards and by the time the smoke cleared some cat from Fat City laid down a whole mess of beans for it! I was, of course, thrilled but not because I’m an insecure fink whose self-worth is all wrapped up in whether or not some Clyde or Wanda digs my work…no that ain’t it at all! It’s the kids what ain’t got books, man! I did it for the kids! Look at me an my philanthropic self!

munny_one.jpg

munny_two.jpg

Okay, now that I laid you out…it’s time for me to bury you! I just recently got me some news that nearly made me flip my lid! Them super-swell dads at Korero books in London (the same cats that just put out “Kustom Graphics” Dig It! they wanna’ make with the Derek Art book! 112 pages of just my crap-a-doodle doo! The working title is “Wildsville, the Art of Derek Yaniger”. I’ve been diggin’ thru all my art puttin’ together a way nice collection of my best bits for the book. It should be rollin’ off the presses sometime around fall of ’08. Now if that ain’t a humdumdinger from Dingersville then I’ll eat from my hat, cat!

Other than the jive I’ve already rolled out for ya… Nowadays I’m makin with the beaver-routine…slingin paint from the early brights to the dim darks trying to get ready for my M Modern solo painting show. The opening is May 9th and by the looks of it I should have around 18 original pieces painted on ply as well as two gallery exclusive prints. So all you chicks and chucks just gotta help me spread the word…ya know, make with the town cryer bit and hip your ship! Hope to see a whole gaggle of you gators at the show, it’s sure to be a real gone gasser!!

go_stop_go.jpg

heres_to_it.jpg

Lastly, I got two new serigraphs ready to roll out at Mister Retro You just gots to fly by and focus your lamps on ‘em. 3 Mad Cats is reminiscent of the oh-so popular SOLD-OUT Beat print and Rummy McBoozer’s Goodtime Gizmo is my homage to the wacky ingenuity of the fun-lovin hipster. Both started out as paintings but now they are available as limited edition prints- get yours like…Nowsville!

Alright, that’s it… I gotta’ be’ gettin’ kitten. Latersville-

Itchy Bits

Filed under: News @ 1:12 pm

Spring has sprung like a madman in my neck -o- the woods! I dig this time of year, dad! I just love donnin’ the old birthday suit and running wild n’ free in them daffy-dils and two-lips! Nothin’ beats it! But, of course you gotta’ keep them peepers peeled ‘cause if your free-swingin naughty bits run smack-dab into a patch of itchy ivy, that’s like… dragsville to the maximum utmost! Take it from me…it’s a bad road to ride!

Ok…lemme drop the skinny on ya’…I’ve been busier than a one-armed chainsaw juggler! I’m finally finishin’ up the last of 17 paintings for next month’s solo gig at M Modern in Palm Springs. The opening is on Friday May 9th and I hope to eyeball lots of you Derek art snobs schmoozin and boozin’ it up! There will be an after party at the Caliente Tropics followin’ the show so you just gotta drop in for that as wellsville! I’ve added lots of snaps of my new splatters on my paintings page so ankle on over and ogle away.

one_for_the_road.jpg

the_gift.jpg

up_with_miniskirts.jpg

What does the future hold for me you ask? Well, since your askin’ all nice like I’ll lay it on ya’…I’ve got a couple more gallery gigs comin up this summer…the Harold Golen Gallery in Miami is holdin the Hukilau Art show sometime in early June (not sure of that exact date) and on June 21st DVA gallery in Chicago is havin its annual tiki art show. And I hear tell from Holden at Tiki Farm that my Tiki Magazine Mug will be sent out to fellow artists to paint upon for DVA’s upcomin’ show as well. That is always a ding dong daddy so keep your radar tuned for that one!

wildsville_book_cover_sketch.jpg

Whenever I can steal some time from painting, I scratch out designs for my upcoming book “Wildsville…the Art of Derek Yaniger”. I’m makin’ with lots of new art for the book… front and back covers, endpapers, contents pages, and all like that there. Korero Books in London is the publisher and a bloody good bloke by the name of Yak is puttin’ together the layouts for the book. He sent me a fistful of spreads to peep and I gotta give it to ya straight…they swing like sixteen, and then some!

book_belongs_to.jpg

Alright…I hope all you hipsters are diggin’ a swingin’ spring… I gotta’ make like a banana and leave…so see ya’ real soon baboon!

Moondog Days of Summer

Filed under: News @ 9:00 am

            Hey there kiddos! Ok, ok, I know I ain’t been so great lately in makin’ with the news page postin’. You gotta know I’m doin’ my best, but damn don’t those tic tocs fly by!! I mean here we are smack dab in the heart of Summerville and the last time I updated my news we were toolin’ thru Springtown! With no further doo-doo, lemme lay out the know for all them empty coconuts what need to be topped off…

            In early May I had my first solo painting gig at the fabulous MModern Gallery in Palm Springs. I copped a squat on a big steel bird ‘cause I just had to make THAT scene, jelly bean. The show was a blast, and how! I met a whole mess of great shirts n’ skirts at the show. A big hi-lite for me was jawin’ with fellow artists Lynne Naylor and Chris Reccardi! Crap-a-doodle-do!…I dig them cats like mad, dad! They made with much nice-nice regarding my paintings…The bigger they is, the nicer they is. There was also a swell Tiki event at the Caliente Tropics hotel that weekend hosted by Rory Snyder…Man, that clyde swings like sixteen! Thanks for makin’ with the Western hospitality Rory. I also met this real cool kitty from hepcat city by the name of Audrey…dig it, she was so charmin’ it’s alarmin! She digs the whole vintage vibe same as me and was nice enough to lay a stash of very wow mid-century cocktail napkins on me. I was stupefied!

vintage_napkin.jpg

Dig upon Audrey’s online radio show at www.luxuriamusic.com every Sunday from 2 to 4 pm (PST) She’ll for sure fill your sound boxes with the freshest Bossa Nova biscuits this side of the Rio Grande.

wildsvillle_cover_final.jpg

            In other news… my book, “Wildsville, the art of Derek Yaniger” is finally finished and I believe it’s about ready to ankle on over to the printer. My good friend Stuart Sandler (of the fab Font Diner) wrote up a right nice Forward for the book while I wrassled with the introduction. The target release is this fall so keep your peep-holes on hi-alert! This summer seems to be all about the Tiki Art shows…I wasn’t able to drop in on the Hukilau event in Ft. Lauderdale this year but I did manage to sling some paint for the Hukilau “fine art of Tiki” show. I went all artsy-cubist-Miro on that piece. It’s called “the Carver” and I believe it can be peeped at the Harold Golen Gallery in Miami.

the_carver.jpg

Another show I just had to sling paint for was the DVA Gallery Anniversary tiki art show in Chicago. My painting, “Aloha from Hawaii” can be found on their website so go snatch it up for your own good self!

aloha_hawaii.jpg

            What else I got stewin’? Well, still not sure if I’m gonna’ be makin’ with the San Diego ComicCon bit. Being in that monster sized show would be koo-koo with a capital koo, but I’m still on a waiting list and that clock is tickin’ louder than a tell-tale heart! Hopefully she’ll still happen, cap’n. One thing I do know for sure, I will be at the DragonCon show in Atlanta (Aug. 29-Sept. 1) So scout me out and swing by n’ say howdy, that is, if you’re able, Mabel. I’ll be doin’ sketches for folks and I’ll have a fresh hot batch of new serigraph for ya’ to paw thru.

            Did someone mention new serigraphs? My printer has been draggin the squeegee like…double time! For my upcomin’ gigs I should have 6 new screenprints lookin’ swell and ready to sell. Three of the images (One for the Road, My 3 Drunks, and Aloha from Hawaii) were recent paintings that I dug so deeply I just had to get ‘em printed up all pretty-like as serigraphs.

t08_print.jpg

            Okay cats, now I gotta clue ya’ to a real bummer bring-down. Sadly, with all the other wild ponies I gotta’ ride, I ain’t gonna be able to do Tiki Oasis this year. It really bites the big weiner ‘cause I dig the hell outta’ that gig. I will, however, have the official Tiki Oasis 8 print available for sale at the show, so hotfoot it on over to the Falling CoCo’s booth and pork out some foldin’ green and git yerself one. Ask for Mean Gene and tell ‘em Derek sent ya’.

            Alright there cats n’ kitties, I can’t hang around here flappin’ my jaws all day, I gotta cut out and catch a way-out wagon to wigtown…you know, peel from the gig and catch you later, dig?

Hot Biscuits!

Filed under: News @ 3:39 pm

Howdy all you hip cats and koo koo kittens! Hope you all dug a swell summer…The Atlanta DragonCon show was a real gasser! Met a whole gaggle of super-swell clydes and sold a heap of prints to boot. Highlights would have to include meeting fellow artists Kathie Olivas, Brandt Peters, and Shane Glines. I’m a big fan of all 3 of these cats so meetin’ with ‘em in person was extry gravy on my po-taters! The bigger they is…the nicer they is!

My new book, ”Wildsville, the art of Derek Yaniger” is now available for pre-order at Amazon, so make a beeline on over and order ‘em up…Unless of course you want a signed copy…then you’ll have to order those through Mr. Retro. I’ll only have a limited number of Johnny Hancock copies so sign up for updates on my homepage and I’ll lay the skinny on ya’ once they are up on the site, dig?

Wildsville Flyer Copy

In other news…I just finished the last of 7 new paintings for an upcomin’ show in Australia. The gig will happen on October 17th at the fabulous Outre Gallery. I’ve added all my newest pieces to the paintings page so be sure to click on over and eyeball the newness.

Alright that’s enough blah, blah for now so I’m makin’ tracks, max…dig ya’ later.

Wildsville is Insville!

Filed under: News @ 5:17 pm

Howdy kids…My book, “Wildsville, the art of Derek Yaniger” is finally here! She’s 112 pages stuffed to the gills with tiki freaks, hillbillies, beats and boozers. It’s got a hardcover with a right fancy embossed dust jacket and is and is a must for all you hipsters who dig a real gone gig! I’ll have a limited edition of only 200 signed and numbered copies and just to gas it up a bit, I’ll be randomly placing an original signed pencil sketch in 20 of the 200. So dig out that lucky rabbit’s foot and make sure you got that horseshoe hangin’ points up and maybe Lady Luck will plant one square on your kisser! Drop in at Mr. Retro to place your order before they’re gone daddy gone.

I’m also rollin out two new serigraphs that I dig like crazy, Daisy! The first is “Aloha from Hawaii”…it’s based on a painting that just sold at the fabulous Outré Gallery in Australia. The second serigraph is “One for the Road”. This one is a “gotta have” for all you cats who like your “good times” on the go! You can roll your grapes over it on my serigraphs page and order it, along with all my other prints, at Mr. Retro.

Aloha from Hawaii

One for the Road

In other news…those far out farmers at Tiki Farm just released my newest mug, “Moai Suave”…them clean lines and that velvety black finish make this one sexy mug…and how! So sexy, in fact, that after I first eyed it, I walked funny for a week! I love that damn thing so much its unnatural! Hop a way out wagon to the Farm and dig one up for your own self!

Makin’ with the Frisco bit!

Filed under: News @ 2:55 pm

Happy New Year all you way-solid shirts n’ skirts! Hope this spankin’ fresh 365 is goin swellsville for ya’…

Ok…dig this…I’m gonna’ be attending this year’s WonderCon show in San Francisco. The show will be held at the Moscone Center South from Feb. 27th thru Mar 1st. I landed a spot in the Artist’s Alley so…if you’re able, Mable…fall by and say “howdy!” And just in time for the gig I’ll be rollin’ out some new serigraphs. “Drunk Descending a Staircase” “Tapped” and if I put some peppers in my pitty-pats maybe I’ll jump enough to have a third one ready to roll…All she is now is a sketch called “Every Pad Needs a Hi-Fi” .Drunk Descending a Staircase

Tapped

Hi-Fi Sketch

In other Dereknews… I just saw a snap of my new tiki decanter produced by them far-out flipsters from the Farm…Tiki Farm that is. I dig it like crazy! It drives me batty-o, Daddy-o! Should be available for sale this spring so make with the beeline bit and buzz on over to the Farm to eyeball it.

I’ve slapped a few new scribbles on my illustration page so please steal a tock or two and gawk ‘em up! Below is a copy of some cd art I just finished for Jazzman Records in the U.K. There’s a “nudie” version of the front cover but the only way you pervos can peep it is to lay down the lettuce and git a copy for your own filthy self. They tell me it “swings like sixteen!”

Titty Shakers CD cover

And just so’s ya’ know…I have a very few signed and numbered copies of my book “Wildsville” available, so clik over to Mr. Retro and latch onto one while they’re still good for the gettin’! And while you’re there why not snag a fistful of limited-edition serigraphs to spruce up your mad pad!

            Just wanted to top off your coconuts with a little reminder that I’m gonna be makin’ the WonderCon scene this comin’ weekend. If you’re gonna’ be in the San Francisco area you just gotta’ take the shoe-leather express over to the Moscone Center and drop in for a spell. You can meet n’ greet me in the Artist’s Alley from Friday the 27th thru Sunday the 1st. I’ll be debutin’ 3 brand spankin’ new serigraphs at the show…”Tapped”, “Every Pad Needs a Hi-Fi”, and “Drunk Descending a Staircase”. All of these are edition sizes of 50…once they’re gone, they’re gonesville!

 Tapped

Every Pad needs a Hi-Fi

Big Do-ins a’foot!

Filed under: News @ 10:28 am

Howdy cats n’ kittens…
Spring is bustin out like slacks on a fat cat, so it’s time to get outta the cella’, Stella! Split the stable, Mabel! Time for all you kooks to run like crazies thru the daises with wild naked abandon! I’d be right out there with ya’ if I could, but I’m just too busy makin’ with the art bit. I got no time for naked daisy runnin’! I’ve got lots of gigs in the hopper so sit back for a short spell and lemme lay it on ya…

I’m scribblin’ out a whole mess of new serigraphs for ya…”Here a chick…” is on it’s way to the printer and she’s shore to be a real beaut! Yeee-Hawww! Also, for all you beatniks on a budget, I’m makin’ with some super-mini prints that are guaranteed to pull you dead to the curb, Herb! 21 different designs…All hand-pulled serigraphs, all signed, and all dirt-cheap! A bailout for the beats!

Here a Chick

Catch of the Day

Dig this…I’ve been invited by the fabulous Tiki Kiliki and the equally fab Harold Golen (of Miami’s Harold Golen Gallery) to be the featured artist at this year’s Hukilau Tiki Art Show. Hot damn! They’re crackin’ the whip, so I’m makin’ the trip. The Hukilau event is held in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida from June 11th thru the 14th. The art show opening will be held on Thurs. June 11 from 6pm til 7:30pm so if you’re gonna’ be around you just gotta’ drop in and say “howdy”. I’ll have 5 paintings in the show as well as two hand-painted Tiki Farm “Moai Suave” mugs.

Another gig in the works is a print show at the Castor and Pollux Gallery in the UK. The show will run from June 26th thru July 20th. On display will be my newest serigraphs as well as some of my old favorites. They’ll also have signed copies of my book, “Wildsville, the art of Derek Yaniger”. Should be a jolly big hoot! Be there if ya’ can, man.

castor and pollux show

Them far-out cats at Korero Books have done it again! They just released “Tiki Mugs, cult artifacts of Polynesian Pop” and she is one slick piece of work! Written by the very talented Jay Strongman and with a foreword by my good friend Holden Westland, (of Tiki Farm fame) how could ya’ go wrong? I created 5 new pieces of art for the book and was tickled all pink-like to find several of my tiki mugs featured in the book as well…This tiki tome is a must for all you mug-maniacs, so put down that fog cutter and stagger on over to Korero Books and snag one for your own good self!

I just finished up a one color T-shirt design for the California-based rockabilly/surf trio the Del Reys. Them cats swing like sixteen, so you know I was over the moon when they laid the gig on me…crazy!

the Del Reys

Lastly, but certainly not leastly, I’ll be makin’ with the San Diego ComicCon bit this comin’ July. I’m hoppin’ like a cricket at a frog rodeo to get ready for the show! I’ll have a whole slew of new for all you chicks n’ chucks to eyeball, including fresh-baked serigraphs, VERY limited-edition hand-painted items and a few tip-top secret pieces in the works that are sure to rocket you hipsters all the way to Endsville! I’ll lay a little more details on ya’ as we get closer to showtime, but for now…I gotta’ feel from the gig, catch ya’ later, dig?

Sum…Sum…Summertime!

Filed under: News @ 9:50 am

Howdy all…hope the summer is treatin’ you  chicks n’ chucks super-swell!

Just wanted to lay a little news update on ya’ to remind all you art snobs that this week I’ll be flyin’ down to the Hukilau in Ft. Lauderdale, and droppin’ in on the Hukilau art show opening. The art show will debut on June 11th from 6 to 7:30 pm at the Bahia Cabana Resort. A whole gaggle of way-talented tiki artists will be represented so you just gotta’ be there for this one…she’s sure to be one ever-lovin’ hoot! I myself will be the “featured” artist (well, la-dee-da!) I’ve got 7 pieces in the show for you to roll your marbles on…(see all 7 below) If anything really fries your wig and you decide you gotta’ snag it while the snaggin’ is good, contact Harold Golen at hgolen@aol.com. Looks like I’ll also be hangin’ around the Hukilau on Friday signin’ copies of my book, “Wildsville”, so hop on your feet and make with the meet n’ greet!

In other news…I worked up the design for the new Tiki Oasis “Tiki Surf City” mug and just recently peeped the sculpts, and I gotta say…Wowsville, man! Miles at Munktiki is the cat what laid out the sculpts and boy howdy he did it up right! She’s gonna’ be a limited edition run so git yours all quick-like or you’re sure to be one unhappy pappy!

If your knowledge box isn’t familiar with the band Clouseaux, do your hear-holes a favor and snatch up their upcoming set of 3 very limited 45’s. This way-talented group of cats hired me to make with some cover art for the 45’s. You gotta’ pony up the bread for all 3 in the set ‘cause when you lay ‘em out side by side you get to eyeball the whole scene, know what I mean? I added a little teaser below, but if you wanna see the entire front and back cover, jump over to my illustration page. Crazy!Clouseaux front

Clouseaux back

Ok cats…I gotta lay it on ya’ straight-like. I’m jumpier than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rockin’ chairs! The San Diego ComicCon is fast-approaching and it looks like all my frantic scribblin’ and wild paint slingin’ is gonna’ result in a whole crazy mess of new stuff for the show! 9 new full-size serigraphs, a very-limited edition 3 serigraph set of “Beat” style nursery rhymes, 21 super-mini serigraphs (for all you cost-conscious cats), some way-out hand-painted items, original sketches and much, much more! I’ll also be debutting 2 Derek “3-D Acryligraphs”. This revolutionary new serigraph piece is guaranteed to flip your lid AND fry your p-nut! A patented process developed by my partner Stuart Sandler (of Font Diner notoriety) creates a 3-D effect that actually transports the viewer inside the wild world that exists only in one of my serigraphs! Travel with me into a 3rd dimension the likes of which the universe has never known…way out, man! Way out! I’ll be at San Diego ComicCon, booth #4900…Buzz on over and dig all the new!

Catch you one the flop-side, Clyde!

Dig me at the San Diego ComicCon booth #4900!

Filed under: News @ 12:56 pm

Howdy all you kooks n’ kookettes! How’s the summer treatin’ ya’ thus far? Just wanted to roll out a quick update to lay the skinny on ya’…

Just recently flew down to Ft. Lauderdale so’s I could drop in on the Hukilau Art Show and dig on all my fellow tiki freaks. The show was a gas! I sold all my paintings all lickety-split style so you know the rest of the gig was nothin’ but gravy! Thanks to all you Hawaiian shirts and hula skirts that forked over the clams to buy my art…from the west coast to the east, I dig ya’ the MOST, to say the least!! And a special thanks to the fabulous Harold Golen of the fabulous Harold Golen Gallery for all his hard work in putting on the art show, and another big thank you to Tiki Kiliki for flyin’ me down and puttin’ me up…she is one real cool kitty from Hepcat City!

In other Derek art news, on July 10th the Gallery at the Alternative Café in Monterey, California will be hosting the Garterbelts and Gasoline group art show. I’ll have two paintings in the show. (You can peep ‘em below.) It’s sure to be a real gone gasser so if ya can, man…roll your grapes on over and gawk it up!

Whistlebait

Mr. Peepers

Dig this…a little something’ for all you cads n’ barracudas out there…Korero Books, them fine publishers from across the pond, have rolled out yet another amazing tome! “Burlesque Poster Design, the art of tease” is now available through their website. The book is jam-packed with amazing burlesque poster design and even little ol’ me got some art in there…crazy! So all you sex-crazed deviants just gots to get your sleazy mitts on this one, like…nowsville!

Burlesque cover

Spread

Well, it’s almost time for the San Diego ComicCon and I’m so excited I might just flip my wig AND blow my jets! The show is SOLD OUT so I’m sure it’ll be busier than a two-dollar hooker with bunk beds and a fold-out couch! I’ve got a whole mess of new stuff I’m debuting at the show so be sure to make your way to booth #4900. I’ll be there with my business partner Stuart Sandler (of Font Diner fame) so drop in on us and dig all the crazy newness!

If you’re gonna be at ComicCon for preview night (Wednesday July 22) I’ll have a VERY limited edition preview night exclusive print available entitled “Shore Leave” (see below)

Shore Leave

Also I’m bringin a good bit of original art to the show as well. I’ll have original pencils, inks, and even full color sketches ripped right outta’ my personal sketch pads. (I’ve added a few snaps below)

B for Burlesque

C is for Cad

D is for Drag

L is for Lush

And dig this…it looks like them far-out fez-makers of Fez-O-Rama will be rollin’ out a new “Deluxe” version of my “royal order of Hipsters” fez. By all accounts, she promises to be a real beaut! Them fez cats are using a new embossing technique that will make the “Hipster’s Deluxe Fez” a must have! Guaranteed to send you straight into orbit! It’s gonna be another small run so get ‘em before they’re gone daddy gone!

Another very limited item produced exclusively for the ComicCon is the “Daddy-O Goose’s real gone rhymes” serigraph set. 3 12” x 12” signed and numbered serigraphs packaged in a screen printed folder “Ooh doggie! She shore is a fancy sight to behold!” (You can see snaps of the cover and all 3 prints below)

And let’s not forget the mind-blowin revolutionary “3-D Derek Acryligraphs”, a very-limited edition hand-made framed 3-D serigraph that will surely pull you dead to the curb! Hotfoot is on over to the San Diego ComicCon, booth #4900, so’s you can rocket with me to the third dimension! Gas it up, Chicky!

Only a week to go, Daddy-O! San Diego ComicCon…Booth #4900

Filed under: News @ 10:10 am

The Ding Dong Daddy of all art conventions is almost upon us…I just shipped more than 20 boxes of stuff out to San Diego, so unless Mr. UPS gets all liquored up and ends up smack dab in a ditch, I’ll have a whole heap of new art for you cats to eyeball!! I’ll be coppin’ a squat at booth #4900 for the entire event so make a beeline so’s we can get to the meetin’ and the greetin’. I’ve listed below a nice hefty sample of what I’ll have at the show, along with a whole mess of snaps so scroll on down and dig it like mad, dad!

Here’s a few more of the super-minis…just right for all you beats on a budget! Collect all 21!

Bongo on the Gogo

Big mug

Don’t pick flowers

girl watchers

mad butcher

This print entitled “Shore Leave” will only be available on Preview Night (Wednesday the 22nd).

Shore Leave

I’ll have copies of my book “Wildsville, the art of Derek Yaniger” as well as “Tiki Mugs, cult artifacts of polynesian pop”, at the show…And if ya’ want, I’ll even make with the “John Hancock” bit for ya’!

Wildsville Cover Large

tiki mug book

I’m debuting 6 wild new serigraphs at the ComicCon…(see below) the edition size of most all of these is limited to 50, so get ‘em before they’re gonesville, man!

Here a Chick

tiki freaks

crazy

Ubangi bop

tiki surf city

And dig this chicks n’ chucks…I just recently got the “Daddy-O Goose’s Real Gone Rhymes” serigraph set from the printer and man…she swings like a well-greased gate! The set includes 3 way-out “beat” serigraphs nestled in a swanky cover screen-printed with gold-foil inks. Crazy, man, crazy! It’s limited to just 30 sets so… gas it up, chicky!

I’m also bringin’ a nice stack of original art to the show. I’ll have the actual pencil sketches and inks from some of my most popular serigraphs. And that’s not all! I’m bringin’ a whole mess of sketches ripped right out of my sketch pads! Here’s a few more samples to peep…

hot rod guy

s is for skid row

coolsville

And if that ain’t enough for all you Derek art snobs out there…the past several months I’ve been makin’ the local flea market scene lookin’ for nutty stuff I could splatter with paint. I’ve added snaps below of what I’ll have at the show. (All the pieces are hand painted “one-of-a-kinds” so once they’re gone, they’re gone daddy gone!) So swing by my booth and have a look-see why doncha’?

And let’s not forget that the fabulous fez freaks of Fez-O-Rama will have a new Derek fez available at the show! It’s sure to be a hum dum dinger from Dingersville so don’t miss out on it! And lastly, The amazing 3-D Acryl-O-Graph makes it’s world debut at the ComicCon! This miracle of modern design has got to be seen up close and personal in order to be fully dug upon, so bring your peepers and prepare yourself for a wild trip into the third dimension!

Alright you groovy hipsters, I gotta’ make like a fat cats slacks and split…Remember, booth #4900 at the San Diego ComicCon…sure as shootin’, I hope to see ya’ there! Plant ya now, dig ya later!

Like…Batty-O, Daddy-O!

Filed under: News @ 7:33 pm

What’s kickin’ chicken? Hope all you koo koo cats n’ crazy kittens are diggin’ a real gone summer. Well, the San Diego ComicCon has come n’ gone and man, I gotta’ lay it on ya straight-like…she was a real gas! I met heaps n’ gobs of great chicks n’ chucks, sold lots of prints, books, original art and Acryl-O-Graphs, and made some great contacts to boot! Never seen anything like it…she’s a real eye-opener, that’s for damn sure! Some of the highlights would have to be…finally meeting the ridiculously talented Mitch O Connell. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to spend too much time with him but he is, without a doubt, one way-solid Jackson! I also got to meet the fabulous Martin McIntosh, head cat at the Outre galleries in Australia! Man I dig that Clyde like crazy! He’s always been really great to me and I can’t lay enough thanks on him for all the help he’s been in gettin’ me where I’ve gotten! Also, I got to spend a few tick tocks with Audrey from Luxuria Music. This chick is cool with a capital koo-koo and always digs a real gone gig! Audrey hosts her own show on luxuriamusic.com entitled “Pretty World” every Sunday afternoon. Dial her up and dig on some swingin’ samba and bossanova beats! Finally, but not leastally, I gotta’ thank the wildly talented Kathie Olivas and Brandt Peters. Seein’ as how I was a first-timer, they were kind enough to introduce me around to some of the resident heavy-hitters…The bigger they is, the nicer they is! Thanks a heap! I’ve attached a few shots of my booth at ComicCon (dig ‘em below). Credit for them crazy signs has to go to my partner Stuart Sandler. Subtle they ain’t! So thanks to all you swell cats who swung by the booth and made with the kindly lingo! Let’s do it again real soon-like, dig?

booth uno

booth dos

In other news…For all you home-grown hipsters who plan on attending the upcoming DragonCon show in Atlanta, I’ll be there with the same booth set-up so fall by and say “howdy ya’ll”! Although I sold almost all of the new stuff I brought to the ComicCon, I did squirrel away a nice batch of stuff for DragonCon so come dig on all the crazy newness! (I’ve attached some shots below for ya’ to peep)

In still other news… The way-talented Lisa Petrucci (of “Kickass Kuties” fame) asked me to do a catalog cover for Something Weird…I just finished it up, so…here tis’…

something weird catalogue cover

One last thing…Regretfully, I wasn’t able to make it back out to San Diego for the Tiki Oasis…man, what a bring down! I miss all my West Coast fellow tiki freaks…I hope all that were able to drop in had a blast n’ a half…I just recently scribbled out a little teaser art for next year’s Oasis (peep it below) Since it’s gonna’ be the event’s 10th Anniversary, it’s sure to be a hoot AND a hollar…I ain’t missin’ that one, no-wise!

Okie Dokie Doggy Daddy, I gotta’ make myself all scarce-like…stay loose, goose!

 Finally able to snag a tick-tock of the old clock to update my News Page…Whew! I’ve been jumpin’ like a jackrabbit on a pogo stick since the San Diego ComicCon and it looks like I got a nice hefty batch of news to lay on ya’ so…..without further doo-doo….

m is for monster

One of the true hi-lites of the ComicCon was meeting the amazingly talented Tim Biskup. I’ve been diggin’ that cat’s scribbles for a lotta’ years now and to actually meet him was like… thrillsville, man! He had eyes for a hand-painted tamborine I brought to the show so we decided to make with the art swap bit. He recently sent me an original ink drawing that is being produced as a limited edition print….Like Wow, and How! I dig it like crazy…Thanks, Tim! I’ll attach a shot of it below so’s you can peep it up!biskup art

Now here’s a real finger-popper…I just signed a deal with PosterPop! In case you ain’t got the know on these cats, lemme clue ya’…They produce stickers and t-shirts for such heavy-hitters as Shag, Tara McPherson, and Coop. ( to namedrop just a few ) To be in the company of these ( as well as the great many other talented artists that they work with) is a real gone gas!…..It’s like, the maximum utmost, doncha’ know? I just sent off 24 different designs and they plan on goin’ ape with ‘em! They’re gonna’ print stickers, tees, patches, etc…etc… So, in the next few months be on the lookout at your favorite hipster hangouts…tell ‘em Derek sent ya’! ( Dig some of the designs below. )

In other Derek news…I recently designed a crazy devil chick tiki mug for them devilish dads down under at DeVille’s Pad. a while back I scratched out a logo and menu design as well as a limited edition serigraph that’s available at Mr. Retro…anyways, them mug-masters at Tiki Farm are producin’ the mug, and from what I’ve seen so far she’s sure to be “hotter than a grease fire in hell’s kitchen!”mug sketch

I’ve been so nutty busy these days rollin’ out prints, stickers and t-shirts that I haven’t had nary a chance to sling any paint….I did manage, however, to paint up a couple of tiki pieces for my Aussie friends at the Outre Gallery. They’re havin’ a tiki art show on Oct. 28th, so swing by if ya’ can, man! ( See sample pics below )mod god

I just finished a t-shirt design for my tiki freak friends at Tiki Magazine….Not sure when it’ll be all printed up and ready to sell but I thought you Chicks n’ Chucks would dig a little sneaky peek….

I just updated a mess of fresh biscuits to my art pages so clik on over and eyeball ‘em why doncha’? I added 11 shots to the Paintings page, 1 to the Serigraph page, and 6 to the Illustration page….give ‘em all a good gander.

OK…I gotta’ hop on my getaway sticks and split the scene…have a swell Halloween, Jelly Bean!

Miami or Bust!

Filed under: News @ 9:22 am

Howdy all you groovy cats!! Hope yer new year is swingin’ like a well-greased gate! Sorry I’ve been so lax in my news updatin’….I’ve been busier than a hungry nun at an all-you-can-eat fishfry!! Always happens….As soon as the hollyday nog binge ends all the swell shirts n’ skirts that I slapped onto my waitin’ list come a callin’…and how! Anyways, I’m kinda’ betwixt gigs so lemme steal a few ticks and catch ya’ up on what’s new, Peggy Sue!

As I posted in my last update my Miami solo show got moved to February, so….she’s comin’ up awful quik-like! The opening will be on Feb. 13th at the fabulous Harold Golen Gallery. I just shipped out the 9 new paintings that I’ll have in the show. I’m also sendin’ Harold two of my amazing 3-D  Acryl-O-Graphs! The show is sure to be a gas, so…wrap your mittens around your Valentine kittens and make the trip! I’ll be there for opening night so be sure and lay a “howdy” on me! You can eye all the pieces for the show below …If ya’ see somethin’ that really flips your switches contact Harold and snatch it up while the gettin’ is good. You can also see larger shots of all the art on my Paintings page.

The event will be held in New Orleans from July 21st thru the 25th! Don’t miss it!
