Was it 2016 specific? I hope it turns up for you. Uggh!

Got some resin poured on the latest batch of pendants, some of them will go in the mail for our Donorpillars and the rest will be handed out on the playa.

A mix of style and utility in these bandannas. I also have t-shirts.

Wow so much nice swag here. Those stickers are great as are the bandannas.

Every year I try to make some special swag, but with the amount of time my art project sucked up this Summer it looks like I will just be bringing assorted Burning Man buttons to gift.

I know I shouldn't worry about such things, but to me it feels like I dropped the ball.

Eric I want a sticker! Those bandanas are great. I want one so I can sew it on something for next year. (After I use it to death this year.) Eplayans make the best swag.

I was able to make it out to the craft store after all:) I did something dainty and simple... but I do love them:) Red Hemp rope with some beads and a charm. The charms each have a saying: Love Much, Laugh Often, Follow Your Heart. I personally liked the little swirl above the sayings.... it reminds me of the Golden Ration which I know was used heavily in Davinci drawings:) Image

I made a bit over 150 hand-pulled screen printed posters to give away as gifts this year.

Image

They were all unique and done collage-style and i just sort of added imagery on top of imagery until they looked okay. I included art from this years temple and included imagery of some pieces I looked forward to seeing. [Icarus, Awakenings and Pulse.] They measured about 19" by 21" and I gave all of them away out on the playa.

A small gallery is here:

If you or someone you know got one of them I'd love to hear if they made it safely home!

Jason, Those are very beautiful. I'm sure more than one person will frame it and put stickers on it. A beautiful backdrop for a BM alter.
