go see JOHN CARTER-!


100 years since it was first published, and after a long and tortured road through the Hollywood development system spanning nearly 70 years, JOHN CARTER is finally in theaters. I started working on THIS version over 4 years ago, contributing Visual Development art and Storyboards...

Here's some of my early development artwork of Tharks, Woola, and the White Apes ( you can find some of these and more in the ART OF book )

Go see it!

Congratulations Derek. I loved that dog and it had Derek Thompson written all over the design! It reminded me of your EGGSUCKER. Hope all is good!

Derek! I saw a matinee of JOHN CARTER and was so pumped and Proud to see your WOOLA design up there. One of my fave things from the movie!

hi Derek! I saw John Carter last friday and Woola was one of my favorite parts. We yelled "space doggy!" every time it came on screen :) These designs are beautiful as usual. Your drawings are so fun to look at.

You and everyone else involved in bringing Barsoom to life have a lot to be proud of. The Tharks, White Apes, airships, all the cool stuff I've wanted to see on screen since I was twelve, it all looked great! And Woola stole every scene he was in.
