Most of my new work is on Tyvek and is done by hand with little tiny dots with a Sharpie marker. It is ridiculously labor intensive and I clearly have nothing exciting going on in my life, or I'd do something fun. Like bake pot brownies. Or whip eggs at open convertibles from freeway overpasses.
Any real questions will be answered if proposed in the manner in which they are done so on the popular long-running game show "Jeopardy!"
