Derek Bacon

International Digital illustrator. Amsterdam

Derek Bacon
Amsterdam-based Derek works in a wonderfully dreamlike digital illustration style.

Approach

Digital photos make up the bulk of Derek’s source material, and he regularly captures new ones to add to it. After sketching out a composition, he searches for elements to use in the illustration from his image library. The final stage involves bringing together and tweaking selected photographic, hand-drawn and textured pieces to build up the final scene. Most pictures take about 2 or 3 days to finish.

Style

Though the basis of Derek’s images is real world photography, the way he retouches and assembles and paints over them in Photoshop gives his illustrations a true feel of artistry. There’s both accuracy and imagination in his work, landing it somewhere between dreams and reality. His influences range from Hockney and Hogarth through to William Burroughs, Robert Johnson and Cecilia Gimenez.
