ONE LAST PITCH TO THOSE ON THE RADER: In a couple hours! The Aaron James Draplin Art Show. The shit is up on the wall, and the doors open at 6 in the P.M. sharp. Friends, booze, a barking dachshund, the parents from Michigan, etc. A good time will be had by all.

Oh yeah, some so-called “art” too. Collage, plywood logos, DDC merch and a shit ton of posters covering “Pretty Much Everything Up Until May 27th, 2009.” Just like it says.

ONLY GOT TIME TO POST ONE SHOT: Here’s Dad, an hour back, get out his eagle eye to inspect the color collages. Just a little snapshot from “behind the scenes” a couple hours back.

Full report tomorrow, readers. Thanks for all the well wishing and good words. Means the goddamn world to me. Thank you.

And for everyone showing up at 6pm: See you in 2 hours and 22 minutes!

Hey Buddy,
Save me a print. Yes I’ll pay for it, I’m just on the road in Michigan so I’m sorry we won’t make it.

Loved stopping by the show! Loved hearing Gary bark. Had the most fun showing your Dad the Red Wings score on my husband’s new iPhone. I hope someone later in the evening was able to inform him that the F-ing Wings are in the Stanley Cup Finals!!!

I dreamt that I went to this show last night.

But alas, I didn’t make it up there. I will see it all though goddamn it. Those collages look awesome.

Hot damn I wish I could be there. Make sure it’s real artsy. Hors d’oeuvres and whatnot.

He’s not kidding…a good time was, in fact, had by all. (We asked EVERYONE.) Loved the art, slurped the yummy cocktails, adored the dad. Can’t wait to hang our purchases.

Hey Aaron, congrats on the opening €“ and the rapid sales. Great to finally meet you (and Gary). My ride is now proudly rocking a Gary sticker.

Aaron, great show last night. It was good to talk to you even thought I had to bail early. You can find me blabbing about it here . Feel free to comment and do other things that make you feel free…

I’ve never seen so many attractive people in the same room all at once.

“Look at all those red dots!” Classiest words ever yelled by an artist at their own gallery opening!

I could use a good ADD show. Be sure to give us outtatowners a sweet recap of the party. Congrats to the Wings.
