ONE MONTH OUT, SAN FRANCISCO: We're proud to announce a special event at Mule Gallery in San Francisco on March 4th!

HERE'S THE DEAL: A couple months back, I finally got to sit down with the one and only Mike Monteiro over a healthy meal in the late San Francisco night. We discussed our lives, where we are from, our families, design, coding, rent, San Francisco, Portland and probably you too, at some point. Leigh McKolay as my witness, MANY TOPICS were covered.

We agreed to hop on the "Let's Make Mistakes" podcast the next morning to go over said topics in finer, high fidelity detail, and you can hear that discussion here: "Let's Make Mistakes" Podcast - 161, Aaron Draplin of North America

Mistakes? Shit, my stupid, weenie-ball, little life might just be one big mistake. I make mistakes, alright. Hourly.

Anyhoo, somewhere in between the podcast and shooting the shit in a food cart court, the good people of Mule Design invited me down to do an art show in their new Mule Gallery space! No time was wasted in accepting.

On March 4th, the doors will open at the Mule Gallery and you'll see precisely this: Everything we could get up on the wall. From colorful posters to catalog covers to magazine pages to patches to test prints to make-ready sheets to stickers to promo cards to pizza boxes to process sketches to printed proof to shitty, little logos to logos we shouldn't have been allowed to make to Field Notes. Everything we could pack in. On a couple walls for you to eyeball. For you to feel. To read. To wonder about. Everything we could drag down from Portland. No space will be wasted. This is what you'll see on the on the walls.

Now, on the floor? You'll find a special, mobile command unit DDC Pop-Up Shop, with our complete offering of spirited merch items. We're dragging down a mountain of DDC merch for the event, which will all be "priced to move" at "San Francisco Only" prices. Seriously.

Plus, we'll be unleashing a new San Francisco "Things We Love" poster, too. Hot off the presses. 4-color. Everything we've ever loved about San Francisco! These will be VIOLENTLY for sale. Very limited edition.

All San Franciscans are invited!

Here's the art show details: March 4–April 29, 2016.

And the DDC Pop-Up Shop dates: March 4, 6–9pm, March 5, 12–6pm & March 6, 12–6pm

Mule Gallery, 80 Fresno Street, San Francisco, CA 94133

TWO SHOWS, ATLANTA: I'll get to that in a sec. My day with Lakeland yesterday was AWESOME. Thank you to Sam and all the good folks of Florida Southern. Had a packed morning show, then tacos, then a packed workshop, then a packed, caffeinated Q & A at Concord Coffee and finally incredible Indian supper. DO NOT get in between me and a samosa. Don't. Anyhoo, a fun, wild day! Thank you, Florida.

We're heading up to Atlanta this afternoon, for two shows at the Switchyards Downtown Club, well, right downtown in Atlanta. There's a show Wednesday night and a show Thursday night. Both are free. Links are below, Atlanta.

We can tell you this much: We'll be mixing stuff up a bit each night...with a lambasting of tall tales, weird instances, hot topics, loose chatter, weird glances and uncomfortable pauses. All the while, drawing from our road experiences, so-called professional practices and, an upcoming book project that is UNSTOPPABLE at this point. Things might get a little weird each night.

One thing will be consistent from night to night: We'll have a FULLY STOCKED DDC MERCH TABLE for all to decimate. We're lugging posters, nuggets, trinkets, Field Notes, weird plastic things, stickers, patches and what not up for the two events. At "Atlanta-Only" pricing. Seriously.

Okay, the links:

Draplin Design Co. at Switchyards Downtown Club, Wednesday, Jan. 27!

Draplin Design Co. at Switchyards Downtown Club, Thursday, Jan. 28!

Come to the shows, Atlanta! Two nights!

And as the time for my expiration closes in, I'll wander off into the woods to let the elements have their way with me. Alone, in the trees, thinking about that old tree patch I made back in 2015. Letting dirt, animals, insect, forest mist and trees devour me, releasing my spirit into the cosmos. Deep thoughts.

And, does anyone know how the Wi-Fi is in the Mt. Hood National Forest?

merch_dd-153_oregon_coast_patch.jpg

Product Description:
The first time I went to the Oregon Coast in 1993, we looked out over that ocean and sort of freaked out. We had made it all the way out here, relatively intact. Our new lives were beginning. Fast forward all these years and we've spent many weekends over there in expensive beach houses, flapping tents or our very favorite, Goo & Fran's beautiful Cove Cabin. Funny how that little part of the world makes you decompress a bit. Take things easier. Eat some chowder. Look out at the big water. Think about creatures that would bite you in half in a second. All fun stuff. We made a patch inspired by the Oregon Coast, those ocean breezes and those green, wet mountains that meet the sea. Such a beautiful place.
Product Details:
01. Proudly made in the U.S.A.
02. Durable embroidery. Long lasting.
02. Inspired by days at the Oregon Coast.
03. 3.5" x 2.5" in dimension.
04. Proudly manufactured by the threadmasters over at Brewery Outfitters!
05. In stock forever, until the ocean swallows us up.

merch_ddc-153_thick_lines_heart_patch.jpg

Product Description:
The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Sure, my heart might be the darkest, coldest, deadest of hearts, but I still feel love for Mom, Leigh, Oliver, Ewan and even Jacob sometimes. Rarely, Goo and Nakamoto too, those turds. So I made a little "thick-lined" heart to remind myself that love is a magical thing, and, well, to let it fill up my life, head and shop, and lift me from the lightless hellhole that is the Draplin Design Co. up into the warm, golden rays of love's shining mysteries. Something like that. Or, I just like thick lines. You pick.
Product Details:
01. Proudly made in the U.S.A.
02. Durable embroidery. Long lasting.
02. Two colorways to from! "Blood Red/Black Heart" or "CMY Process Love".

merch_sleeping_bear_dunes_print.jpg
(Photo by Leigh McKolay of the Coastal Michigan Fan Club!)

Product Description:
Some of the greatest memories from my childhood involve climbing and running down those Sleeping Bear Dunes on that beautiful Lake Michigan shore. Of little kids hurtling down those dunes, bailing and coming up for air with nostrils, mouths and ears full of sand. Sandy tears. Good, clean fun. Or hell, that one time, on "Senior Skip Day, Class of '91," when I went with a group of buddies and climbed that first dune and we "kept going" all the way to Lake Michigan. Hot as hell, near death, we barely made it, only to take a tired, hot look at the big water and had to walk all the way back. Never again. Death march bullshit.

Anyhoo, we made a little mini print as a tribute to one of the world's most beautiful places, those Sleeping Bear Dunes. Get one before they are gone!

Product Details:
01. Printed on thick, durable, bright, white 100# cover stock.
02. Four colors! Inspired by our home state of Michigan!
03. 7" x 9.375" in dimension.
04. Proudly printed by the dunelurkers over at Seizure Palace!

HOOKED ON THIS RECORD: I've never heard this Donald Fagen record. A big fan of Steely Dan, it's like I stumbled on more of the stuff. Weird.

FINALLY GOT TO SEE IT UP CLOSE: My buddy John Gall—of who I am working on the biggest thing in my life with but can't say anything just yet—sent me a couple issue of the New York TImes I was in last week. Surreal! Thanks, Steven Kurutz for giving me a shot and Leah Nash for taking the shots! Surreal!
