Derek Charm is a 27 year old comic artist and illustrator based out of Seattle, WA. He attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco for four years, majoring in 2-D animation and illustration. After college, Derek hopped from city to city, finally resting in sunny Seattle (birthplace of the 90's, grunge, space needles, and cool comics.) Inspired mainly by Golden Age adventure illustration and comic book art, Derek keeps busy with numerous art shows in the Seattle area, and as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. His art has appeared in several small press comic anthologies and was featured on the cover of Seattle's weekly paper, The Stranger. His 36-page self published comic book Derek Charm's Action Pack, featuring such awesome characters as Haunted Tom and The Megaprince, is now available on his website, http://derekcharm.com.
