As in the past, I hung up a little tablet/pen next to my artwork at Burning Man for anyone wishing to share thoughts.
Here are this year’s comments (including some drawings):

I would like to thank Philip Riley at Skink Ink Fine Art Printing once again for his outstanding high-quality printing work.
For the third year in a row I have chosen to have it printed on tyvek, which stands up better to the harsh environment of Burning Man while maintaining an absolutely amazing print quality.
