  • Derrick has been an amazing colleague, and he then became an amazing supervisor. He is an extremely dedicated individual who cares just as much about honing his craft and sharing his knowledge with his peers. He knows extensively about many disciplines and is always eager to learn more. One of the most dedicated character artists I've had the opportunity to work with!
