Description

Nada de deporte veraniego, para sus acólitos el Surf es toda un religión. Derek Yaniger vive muy lejos del oceano pero conoce muy bien toda su liturgia, especialmente la que tiene que ver con sus orígenes californianos y con la cultura de las playas, los coches preparados, y las canciones de los Beach Boys. En esta estupenda ilustración, resuelta a tres colores, podemos ver a un devoto postrado ante la vidriera de un santo surfero mientras reza pidiendo olas de dos metros.

DEREK YANIGER (Arkansas, USA, 1960)

Yaniger spent much of his professional career with companies like Marvel Comics and Cartoon Network, working on successful series such as Dexter, Powerpuff Girls and Transformers, until one day he decided, in the artist’s own words, “to dance to the beat of my own bongos”.

Since then he has exhibited at art galleries in several different countries, become the lead designer for the world’s best retro festivals and conventions (Tiki Oasis, Viva Las Vegas, Wild Weekend, etc.), and published his work in prestigious popular publications such as Barracuda, Atomic, Car Kulture Deluxe and Tiki Magazine.
