“Twenty something Derek Gangi is a design student who loves to experiment with new software and improve his skill set, in fact he brings us a short collection of vector art that he created while messing around with a couple of ideas he had. After creating a couple Derek decided that he was pretty pleased with what he had already crafted, and went on to create a whole series in a similar style. What we have here in fact is a slice of the best ones in my opinion, I love the sudden burst of colour these bring to our screens a lot of them look almost like smoke or flames just in a range of colour tones. Derek is currently constructing his personal site which is linked bellow, make sure to check back for the release in the near future.”
