Really enjoyed this profile on designer Aaron Draplin, by Jared Eberhardt. The video starts at the Draplin Design Company studio in Portland, Oregon, and eventually ends up at an estate sale. Everything in between is classic Draplin; his excitement about vintage graphic design work is fun to watch. Peep the video below!

Forest For The Trees

Last month marked the debut of Forest For The Trees, a mural project in Portland, Oregon. The event was sort of a sister event to Pow! Wow!, and featured a whole lotta my friends: Erik Otto, Meggs, Rone, Madsteez, Sam Rodriguez, Kamea Hadar, and Yoskay Yamamoto among others.

You can watch a video re-cap of the event below, as well as a time-lapse of Rone painting the wall you see here.
