RESIDENT OF THE MONTH: Derek Gores

Updated: May 28, 2020

Derek Gores is the ‘it dude’ in the art community, creating art since the 70’s as he drew his own Star Wars characters. Out of art school, Gores designed t-shirts for the Grateful Dead and other musicians just before making the leap to pursue his own thing at the age of 37. Derek makes house calls for pop up art parties and events. Check out the photos in I Love Beachside (page 12) to see his collaboration with Club Esteem Rock the Casbah.
