Back in high school I was super into hardcore music. I was at a show almost every single weekend, would go out of state to see my favorite band on a school night, or travel halfway across the U.S. map to go to a hardcore festival.
One of the biggest inspirations on me as a beginning artist was Derek Hess. He did covers for all kinds of bands but I specifically remember the work he did for Converge, Nora and Shai Hulud.
Derek Hess was definitely a huge inspiration to me as a young creative teen. Gravitas Ventures has released a biographic documentary about this great artist, and I am excited to see it.
