I'm convinced the universe willed this interview. The first opportunity I had to interview Derrick fell through, and the next opportunity I had was on November 2nd, my birthday. Turning 30 was big for me, and the fact I got to interview an internationally renowned artist (with his works appearing in hit TV shows) was very reaffirming to me. Enough about me though, listen as Derrick talks about his interest in art, the disinterest he had in making money off art, and why he doesn't consider himself an optimist, but an "alternatist". It's not a word yet, maybe Derrick can use it to create a new art movement.
