Hi it's Derek Riggs.
Happy Christmas everyone.
I hope you all have a great new year.
here is a small version of the very first Christmas card that I painted for Maiden back in about 1980 I think.
it's actually the apartment I used to live in in North London. It's the same block of apartments that you can see on the Killers album, but this is the inside of it. that's my couch and my cat hiding behind it. His name was "Magus Matterguru, master of the universe." and he had a sister, she was called "Catblack the wizard's hat" but she isn't in the picture. They are both long dead now, but the picture remains. Have fun guys.
all the best

Hi Folks, it's Derek.
look here, someone sent me this old picture that I did of Eddie back in the early 1980's. it was for a promotion Maiden were doing in Cleveland U.S.A. I think the bird is a sports mascot that someone there was using (please forgive my ignorance Cleveland). I cleaned it up a bit and then I thought you might like to see it.
have fun

Hi it's Derek Riggs, Here's a thing.
I was talking to someone recently about the cover "Somewhere in Time" and I realized that I had this photo of the easel in my apartment in London when the painting was actually being painted. The original was 15 inches by 30 inches and it was painted in Acrylic paint on illustration board. So I thought I would put it out here for you all to see.
Have fun guys
all the best

mal wieder was cooles von Derek

ein kumpel aus Brasilien hat Derek direkt auf Facebook folgendes gefragt

Hi Derek, any info about this artwork? It's a two page advert from an old Circus magazine and I always wonder if this artwork was really considered to be used as Live After Death cover at some point? Cheers!

Hi it's Derek. That picture was the original version of "live after death" I didn't like it much, I think the Eddie is in a bad position. but that was what the manager wanted. As thing turned out it couldn't be photographed because it was done in oils and oils are a bit glossy. The picture tended to shine where the lights hit it. The photographers couldn't stop the picture from shining so I had to paint another one in watercolours. Which was a good thing because then I did it my way and it looks better.

Cool. Ist jetzt auch nicht sooo schlecht, Eddie wirkt allerdings etwas harmlos...

Ist wirklich keine gute Pose von Eddie...

This was the second version of this one. For the first version the manager wanted Eddie thrusting out of the grave straight at the viewer. I tried that and just as I said at the time, the dynamics completely didn't work. (I knew they wouldn't, it's what I do you know... but everyone and his brother thinks they know better...) The first one was painted in oils. Whenever I pained anything in oil paints the guys who photograph it can't get the shine from the lights off the picture so you get white areas and bit all over it. Which really is just incompetence. But this time it worked in my favor and I got to re-paint it in acryllics the way I wanted to (the only way the picture will work.) Hooray... somebody fucking listened. On the far right, in the grass, those are magic mushrooms. They were growing all over London at the time because some hippies had seeded all the public parks with magic mushroom spores. So I stuck some in.

Die Story ist auch in Dereks Buch "Run for Cover" zu finden.

Und in der 98er remastered Serie wurde dieser Eddie auf eine der CDs gedruckt ;-)

Ein Interview mit Derek Riggs. Ist immer noch der gleiche seltsame Kauz und lacht die ganze Zeit. Finde den Typ trotzdem sympathisch. ;-) Im Hintergrund vom Stand hat er coole Eddies aufgehängt die ich so glaube ich noch nie gesehen habe.
