We continue where we left off in the last edition: the sixth CD. He's five more fun Rock-ings...

Derek Rocks As Usual
Created: 2/7/01
Comments: I took the cover from Derek Rocks Again and put it on the TV in a room and made Derek Rocks Man sitting in a chair, 'cuz it's As Usual it has to be a much more typical setting. Derek Rocks Man is an everyman. An everyman that watches his concerts on TV. I think this really added the the character as a whole. The songs were tough picks. I think it represents a healthy variety: from the quieter Semisonic jam, to the hardcore beats of Rage Against the Machine. It also features 4 (count 'em 4!) local Maine songs from Rustic and Rustic's keyboardist Spence.

Derek Rocks Too Much
Created: 3/16/01
Comments: Now if you've been looking at the covers so far, you should have noticed Derek Rocks Man doesn't have a face unless it's the only way to express his emotions. This was a creative challenge I conciously made for myself. On the first CD the guy wasn't even drawn by me, but on the second I could have easily given him a face, but I enjoyed the idea of making myself come up with a way to convey emotions face-less. Now I found myself needing to make him look tired and without eyes or mouth, and I gave up on that idea! But I came up with a new rule for this CD: passion-filled, more extreme emotions will create eyes and mouth. Like yelling, being mad, or being very tired.

2. Blink 182 - Adam's Song

13. Powderfinger - My Happiness
14. 311 - Don't Stay Home
15. They Might Be Giants - Boss Of Me
16. Ret Hot Chili Peppers - Parallel Universe
17. Tantric - Breakdown
18. Papa Roach - Between Angels & Insects
19. Spacehog - I Want To Live

Derek Won't Stop A-Rockin'
Created: 3/16/01
Comments: In my infinite wisdom I made a playlist (that's what I do, base a playlist on the CD to plan the order) that was soooo huge that I couldn't fit it on one CD. So I got more songs and some aren't the best, but I managed to scrounge them up so that I could fit the songs on 2 CDs. So what may have been the seventh CD because it was created first, but in a way the eighth is just a continuation of the it! Also notice how I just took a photo of the band KISS and drew over with Derek Rock Man's head. This was the first, but not last time I'd do that!

Derek Rocks 24/7
Created: 4/16/01
Comments: Not really knowing what to do with this CD Matt came up with the title "Derek Rocks 24/7" and I was stuck coming up with a cover image for that. I figured I could just draw Derek Rocks Man and just take it from there. So I play around with some stuff like a change in the Derek Rocks title (which before had always been shimmery and slanted) and radial blur. So now that Derek Rocks Man looks like he's spinning I add in a little tip about listening until you become dizzy and I have myself a cover to go along with a solid bunch of songs that have a Summery touch.

1. Sum 41 - Fat Lip

20. Greenday - Waiting
21. Lucky Boys Confusion - Fred Astaire

Derek Rocks Outside
Created: 6/22/01
Comments: With the song Outside by Staind on the song roster, there's never a more fitting time to call it "Derek Rocks Outside". I also thought I'd have some fun and put in a "super secret ultra-mega bonus hidden song" which I then advertise about on the cover and state specifically is at the end. Oh, the fun of it all! At least I got to airbrush stuff on the computer to make the fire look good.
