I met Derek Thompson during my short stay at ILM, in San Rafael, California, where he worked in the art department.
Derek is warm, charismatic individual and has oodles of talent. We became good friends straight away. He was very welcoming and made my stay in San Francisco very pleasurable sharing laughter and entusiastic discusions about art
An exagerated farewell card drawn by Derek and Brian for my departure from ILM. (I don't have two willies, I am sorry to report!)
Unfortunately I cannot remember Brian's surname but he was a mean artist and a great guy.
Derek gave me this oil portrait of one of his mentors he painted in San Francisco.
