From the Publisher:

Celebrating a retro subculture of tiki gods, hillbillies, and burlesque, this collection of Derek Yaniger's incredible body of 1950s-style cartoon art is a must for all tiki and Kustom Kulture addicts. The only work devoted to his illustrations for Cartoon Network, Marvel Comics (for which he worked on such titles as Hellraiser, Transformers: Generation 2, and Web of Spider-Man), and more, this book contains more than 150 original paintings and illustrations. Derek's illustration style, reminiscent of cocktail napkin art of the 1950s, delves into the retro world of beatniks, tiki bars, and Vegas glamour. Original cartoon art collectors, students of cartoon art, and fans of lowbrow artists will all find this an essential reference.

Derek Yaniger publishes in such magazines as Atomic, Barracuda, and Car Kulture Deluxe and does prints for shows such as Hukilau, Tiki Oasis, and the Wild Weekend. He lives in Atlanta, Georgia.

Also from the Publisher:

Get hip with this celebration of all things retro, low-brow and tiki-tastic! Derek Yaniger's colorful style is reminiscent of the Cartoon Modern style of the '50s with a hip, contemporary twist. A contributor to low-brow journals like Atomic and Barracuda, his retro world revolves around beatniks, tiki gods, swinging ladies and cocktails. Fans of Shag and the great Jim Flora will relish this book.
