He has also worked in other media including drawing, printmaking, film, books, three dimensional objects, installations and photography. His graphic creations produced in collaboration with musicians such as The Clash and David Bowie have seen his work reach an even wider audience.

Over the years he has held several solo exhibitions, most recently, his solo shows such as Extreme Makeover and Derek Boshier: Works on Paper, have been held in New York, London and San Francisco.
