TOMORROW NIGHT, PORTLAND: This one is official! Just got off the phone with Hillerns and man, people are registering, numbers are growing, staff assembled, A/V shit figured out. That guy runs a tight ship! Hell yes.

YOU BETTER BE THERE: “AIGA Portland’s Designspeaks with the Draplin Design Co.”

Telling my half-ass story. All of it. From birth right up to tomorrow night. Everything. Show some work, tell some tall tales, get a little fired up, call out some some brave friends who might be showing up, etc. Good, clean fun. Downtown. Nice space. Selling tons of Merch. Real orange. Make some friends. Be there.

IF KACZMAREK SAY THIS ONE IS A SURE BET, WE BELIEVE THE GUY: Steven Jockish just moved from Minneapolis to the big city New York, and man, he’s got some nice work. Beautiful type. Get in there and root around a little.

THE KIND OF SHIT I THINK ABOUT, WHILE WAITING FOR PDFs TO UPLOAD: It’s a big universe. We’re just a dot inside a dot inside a dot. And that’s just inside the Milky Way. What’s up above us? What’s down below us? If you were to go in one direction for, well, forever, would you hit some sort of Time Bandits-esque dimension plane or wall or something? Staggering thoughts, while the bytes load up. Scary, sorta.

Always wondering.

KING OF THE BREEDS: Here’s a long wiener dog in a scrap with a dog bone. Could get messy.

I just want to know where you got that thickness gauge. It’s a thing of beauty. I have no use for it but I want it.
