Derek Wehrwein is an illustrator who thrives in the realm of portrait and realistic caricature art. “I like the challenge involved in capturing the essence and personalities of my subjects. My goal is to redefine how most people think of illustration and caricature art.”


Wehrwein’s illustration process is meticulous, beginning with study and sketching and blossoming into a piece that incorporates complex textures, layers, and values.


Original artwork that inspires the imagination and leaves viewers with a distinct, memorable impression of quality craftsmanship.

We receive many compliments on the cover illustrations Derek has done for our special Minnesota Vikings issues. Last year the Vikings staff asked for a framed copy and requested meeting the talented artist.”
