Beat Poet and Artist Derek Yainger is the coolest cat around.
I have been a fan of Derek's for around 10 years. I was lucky enough to get a copy of his Kiddie Cocktails signed at DragonCon.
His art has always been somewhere between atomic retro and tiki design. That is what we are trying to bring together here at TikiFreek. We are getting the best new artist to create some of the best limited-edition products available.
Just like in his image above, Tiki on the Brain, it is hard not to constantly be thinking of your next tiki idea, even with the most beautiful muse around.
Derek has a great eye and we are hoping to work with him in the future on a collaboration. Until then please visit his site and buy something from one of the best retro artists in the scene.
Can't wait to see all the new creations he has this year! Make sure to visit his site and pick something up while you are there.
