about Straw Castle

“I think the block printing method is somewhat of a lost art form. I wanted to take that form and do something with it that is a little unexpected.”

If we called Derrick a romantic, would you believe us? It is true that this hardcore guy, who counts Def Leopard and KISS among his fans, is a romantic for the lost art of block printing. In the day of digital art and illustration, he was attracted to the totally hands-on nature of the craft so he started a little tee-making business. Quickly his Americana block prints, inspired by everything from bootleggers to tattoo culture to old vintage cigarette tins, took off. Though he’s done custom work for some pretty righteous artists, his favorite piece to date is inspired by his moonshine-making grandpa, who made a living off the hooch before moving to Nashville when Prohibition ended. show more
