So today I got the email from the man himself, Aaron Draplin. This was actually the original sticker that I started with in the series and was so happy when I got his response. Hopefully tomorrow we will be posting a few big thing for this project!
Additionally, this dribbble shot is dedicated to Mr. Jim Draplin, thank you for raising such an amazing son. I know that he will forever be missed.

Another great work - and i can sense what this means to you, @Rocky.
@Axel Herrmann Thanks man! When I was about to graduate from college and had just gone through my portfolio show, the weekend after I went to a design conference where he was speaking and was able to talk to him and buy a bunch of stuff from him. In just that short time I talked to him and he spoke at the conference I became completely reenergized after about 9 months of hard work to get through my show. So he will definitely always be one of my idols and a great source of inspiration. (:
Thanks for sharing this @Rocky - great inspiration for sure. :)

Love this Rocky and I will definitely be slapping one of these on something! I also met Draplin just about a month ago, the man is as humble and genuine as they come. I was super inspired and reenergized after meeting him and hearing him speak.
