Four days out, Florida! I’m coming down there, and I’m laying it allll out. All the warts and moles. Tall tales. Proof of “what I do.” Triumph. Heartbreak. Big words. Small words. Cuss words, maybe. Here’s the official Facebookery on the event. Orlando, this is the time!

IF YOU LISTEN TO ANYONE, YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO THESE RASCALS: Always With Honor want you to attend my little chat this Friday in Orlando, and coincidentally, so do I. In fact, I am demanding it. There you go. Rainforest Cafe. Ha! I did a “LOL” when I read that.

You better be there, Florida! I’m making a list.

BILLY FOWKS IS IN ORBIT WITH THIS ONE: Right now, a piece of science floats above you in the silent void that is “space” and the thing is the size of a school bus, and, has all kinds of interesting stuff attached to it.

ALL THE WAY FROM THIS NATION’S EASTERN SEABOARD, A LAHAN WAVE WASHES OVER THE DDC: Tim Lahan is up to some incredible stuff! Great, great work. Check out this new identity set he did for Michael Clinard up there in Seattle. Wow.

SPEAKING OF TRADEMARKS: That American Trademarks book we were so lucky to get included into gets a well-deserved nod over at Fast Company. So proud of this one. Don’t quite have the words to describe it. Get a copy and make a logo, and freak out on the years and years of incredible design history on those pages, and down the street at the local corner store or whatever.
