"The idea of the flower is to be seductive, to draw interest to it for the sake of pollination. This is why I thought drawing some vibrant and alive flowers on playboy covers would be a good fit. Playboy Magazine is about attraction and seduction, same as the flower. I found the flower to be a fascinating plant, so many different types with all the singleness of mind, to get pollinated. The Playboy Magazine, so many different issues and covers, all with the singleness of mind, to get pollinated.

This series was fun because of working directly on the Playboy covers. The cover art made for a wonderfully colorful canvas that enriched the image of the flower when drawn on top of it. The flower becomes the cover, but if you look at it well, the original cover still exists, it has become symbiotic." - Derek Hess


ABOUT THE ARTIST
From concert posters to politically charged fine art pieces, Cleveland-based artist Derek Hess has tested the waters of both the music and art world for over 15 years.

Growth, in general, has been an unwavering theme throughout both Hess’ personal and professional life. From a young age, Hess was transfixed by his father Roy’s ability to create on paper the images of planes and tanks that his son had swimming in his head.

Always a fan of music, Hess began booking shows at the Euclid Tavern, a staple for cover bands and blues at the time. Hess soon began to curtail the format of the bands being brought to the tavern into something he liked and was comfortable with. He also started creating the promotional flyers for the shows using his own unique vision and a play off the bands names and genre.

More recently, Hess started a clothing line, Strhess, as well as Hessfest and the Strhess Tour, a collaboration of music and art that features bands such as Thursday, Shadow’s Fall, Stretch Arm Strong and Taking Back Sunday.

Hess’ art has been able to transcend genres as well as generations, which is icing on the cake for the artist. “At the end of the day I’d like, ideally, for all of my art to be technically sound. That, to me, is what makes a successful artist.”
