Tall Tales From a Large Man- Aaron Draplin's Doejo Speaking Fiasco
Thursday, October 25, 2012 from 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM (CDT)
In a bold attempt to bring a new level of intensity to the hollowed halls of Bow Truss, Doejo has wrangled Aaron James Draplin, the ultimate ne'er-do-well and supreme provider of services such as Graphic Design, Illustration, Friendship, Clipping Pathery, Garying, Jokes/Laughter, Campfire Strummin’, Gocco Dynamics, Road Trip Navigation, Trust, Guitar Tuning, Gen’l Conversation, Culture Critique, Color Correcting, Existential Wondering, Bounty Hunting, Heavy Lifting, Advice, A Warm Meal, Simple Ideas and Occasional Usage of Big Words.
Using scientific proof and state-of-the-art multimedia techniques, Aaron James Draplin of the Draplin Design Co. joins Doejo to deliver a suckerpunch of a talk that aims to provide bonafide proof of work, the highs and lows of a ferociously independent existence and a couple tall tales from his so-called career in the cutthroat world of contemporary graphic design. Just a regular American guy with a trajectory a little dirtier than yours, his talk is open to all oncomers brave enough to show up. If you are a youngster, you may find yourself inspired to attack your design future in a different way. If you are established, you may just leave feeling grateful you don't have anything to do with him. Hard to say.
Though we risk our good name to host the venerable Aaron Draplin, we'll do it with pleasure. All design loving citizens are invited to attend and enjoy special edition Strange Pelican Beer, Rustic Tarts and Bow Truss coffee while perusing a full range of Draplin-designed merchandise.
Tickets also include a limited edition print celebrating the occasion, designed by Doejo's own design squad.
