Back in March (March!), I managed to go to the DDC Art Show and Pop-Up at Mule Gallery SF, and I thought it’s high time that I post some pictures from that visit. Better late than never!
I’m glad I avoided the opening night because I heard it was crazy. Luckily, Mr. Draplin stayed in town a few more days, and I was able to see him at the gallery and even exchange a few words. Nothing deep, as there were plenty of people eagerly waiting their turn to talk to him about design. He’s a very popular man!
Excuse the blurriness of some of the photos. I wish I had taken better photos but I was a bit busy soaking in all his work presented on three big walls. There were so many details, I could have easily spent the whole day there.
It was great to finally see them in person. I mean, shaking hands with someone so talented and hard-working (and whom I've only seen online!) was surreal enough, but to be able to see so much of his stuff, some familiar, some not, right up close was quite a treat. And very inspiring. Seriously, does he even sleep?
Oh, and his book Pretty Much Everything was at the show for people to preview. I couldn’t spend too long with it, as there was only one copy, but I know I will be buying it soon, hopefully at one of the local book stores. I mean, I already bought the EEEK (“Everything Else Enhancement Kit”). What am I going to do with an empty slipcase? 😁
