Draplin in Utah

I went to see Aaron Draplin‘s Tall Tales From A Large Man lecture series here in Salt Lake City this evening. AIGASLC sponsored the event at the UMFA, and it was absolutely everything I expected. Draplin was incredibly inspiring, and amazingly funny as always. Anyone that uses Saul Bass as a verb is all time in my book. I picked up a limited edition Utah Poster, as well as a new copy of A Drive Into The Gap  by Kevin Guilfoile (published through Field Notes)…..this was an incredible night all around, and one I will not soon forget.


DDC: What Really Matters, Invent Your World, & Other Tall Tales

You guys need to check out Aaron’s full lecture at MCAD from earlier this year. All hail Draplin.


Draplin Setup

I just had to post about how pumped I am on the new Draplin shit that showed up this week…that is all.

I don’t have part numbers or descriptions on the stickers, but it feels like Aaron’s old man is looking over us now…SHITCHYAH.

Yes I’m a dork…

Man I wish he would come here to speak….


Inspiration

I don’t care what you do in life, this will apply. The guys at Create The Map threw this up last month.  Aaron Draplin is an American Hero.

As you may already know, I think  Aaron Draplin and Pat Bridges are a couple of icons.  Aaron has….opinions. Not sure he’s pumped on Mark.
