It’s getting down to the final push for this semester and I’m getting an awesome mixture of excitement/terror. It’s mostly terror at this point. I did get to see Aaron Draplin give a talk last night and he was AMAZING. Seriously, I think I have a design idol now. I bought a sweet poster from him; he had a bunch of Missouri posters and I managed to snag one and have him sign it. I honest-to-God had shaky knees when I spoke to him. He was just such a down-to-earth, laid-back and humble guy who loves his parents and his dog and his design ethic really spoke to me. It was a great talk and I hope I get to see him again some day.
Also – he’s coming out with a book next year!
