Rachel's boyfriend, Bailey's and Aaron's best friend, also close with Merriweather, Carlos, and Lindsay. Friendly with the east coast group, especially Mark. Derrick's dream is to own a tattoo parlor someday, and Rachel's gonna do the piercings. Ah, young dreams.
I've had him for like, five years, but haven't drawn him much until 2010. I have too many characters.
He's obsessed with Say Anything and Halloween and has a habit of drawing and writing on himself with sharpies. He's...often covered with Say Anything lyrics. Ouch.
I forgot to make little clothes people so I'll add them later.

He puts up with his friends’ crazy problems pretty well (Merriweather, Aaron, Bailey and Rachel = pile of anxiety and stupid). Loves body art, and is totally devoted to it. The only other thing he’s more obsessed with is Say Anything, and it’s better to not ask. Derrick’s pretty much an average guy who likes boozing it up with friends and the girlfriend on the weekends, likes his job, reading before he goes to sleep, and trying really hard to be good at guitar in his spare time.
