Best Punk-Rock Entrepreneur

Derek Hess

This Marvel comics fan parlayed his action-oriented, scratchy renderings into stardom as one of the country's premier concert-poster artists, earning him a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Never one to rest on his laurels, Hess launched Strhess Fest, a gathering of hardcore and emo acts that has become one of the best bills this side of Warped. He's also marketing Strhess Clothing, a line of T-shirts, hoodies, and "girly items" that bear his designs. All of which shows that Hess knows how to succeed by going against the status quo.
