draplin COLLABORATE WITH US: Check out what we've got going for @Adobe’s HOW Design Conference giveaway. First I need you to help collect icons and elements in the real world, send them to me through @Adobe Creative Cloud, and I’ll design up a screen printed poster that our buddies at @mamassauce will print. Then we show up at HOW and give them away to the first 1,000 people. Check the link in my bio for the details. #adobehow #howlive 4d

draplin This little guy was calling out to me from an estate sale all the way out on 151st. Had to get out there to unearth him from that broken-down workbench. Such a beautiful little form. #thicklines #deadthings #newlife #junking #reasonstokeepgoing @leighola77 @ewanmartinphotography 6d

draplin Get in nice and close with every one of John's incredible brush strokes! If the subject matter is too much for you, well, take a deep breath and just know that I'm just a human, and seeing a photo of myself is weird enough as is. And then, this?! Insanity. #outofbodyexperiences Thank you, John Hammer. Made my night, week and hell the whole damn tour. @thehammerstudio #johnhammer #tulsa #paint #brushstrokes #trickysubjectmaterial #largeheads #medicineballheads #afaceamotherhasahardtimewith #oklahomafreakout #thicklines #thickstrokes #adct 1w

draplin Okay, so what do you do when John Hammer hands you the most amazing portrait you've ever seen of your goddamn face? You smile super big and hug the guy. And freak out a bunch. #oklahomafreakout I'm just blown away. Don't know how to handle this kind of stuff. Seriously, the coolest thing that been done with this challenging face of mine, to date. Thank you for 1,000 years! @thehammerstudio #tulsa #paint #coolmoments #ddcspringtour2015 #adct 1w

draplin People are always asking me, "What Field Notes are you currently using?" And I'll just yank the latest one out of my pocket to show them. We're currently "a little over half-filled" with a Facebook Analog Research Lab book. With a Steve Earle autograph on the cover! Love that orange/red hue. And, I love @joshwhiggins, Nick Wilson, @scottboms and @jezburrows. And when I come there in June, I plan on kicking ALL of their asses. Graphically, of course. Unless things get weird and shit spills out into some parking lot full of Prius'. Let's just see where the day takes us, okay fellas? @fieldnotesbrand #whatweareusing #facebook @analoglab 2w

draplin Can't get this little canyon dingo out of my head. We're down with any kind of hounds of the paint-by-number sort. From some overpriced booth at the Portland Antique Expo last week. #canyondingo #portlandantiqueexpo #deadpaintbynumbers #newlife #dogs @leighola77 2w

draplin Had a helluva time in Ruston! Thanks to all the Louisiana Tech design staff and students who came to the show! And, holy shit, thanks to all the wild-eyed design enthusiasts who drove all the way down from Arkansas, over from Texas and up from Alexandria! Thanks, everyone! #funshows #ddcwintertour2015 #rustonorbust #longlivelouisiana #vivelalousiane #thankyou 2w
