Hi every one, its been a long time since my last post however I have been collecting recycled pens from folks all over the world and have over 100K pens in four very large boxes at my warehouse location.The pen car died on me last October however for the cost of repairing I got my self a newer 83 Mercedes 300SD and started right back up. The good thing is that I now have a parts car out front so the original Mercedes pens can still have purpose in continuing the Mercedes pens legacy.
I finally made the big move from blog spot over to my new word press site at www.penguyart.com.
Blog spot was a great place to start blogging about my Mercedes Pens art car and my pen recycling art project but I wanted the flexibility of a self hosted word press site that has given me the freedom to offer more.
As a graphic designer I wanted expand my business by offering Word Press CMS based web solutions to all my clients. I knew the day would come when I would have to switch and 2013 seemed like the right time to do so.
The good news is that I am still collecting pens, still making recycled pen art and still passionate about this project. Now I am able to do more, showcase my past accomplishments, with great videos, articles and photo galleries. And best of all, make it easy for you to find out about pen recycling and how to start a pen drive in your community and help move this amazing project forward.
I am hopping those of who have subscribed will go over to my new site and sign up for my monthly newsletter or at least grab the new rss feed so can still get the latest blog posts.
I would love to hear from you all and please feel free to contact me and let me know what
Its been an amazing couple of week that started by an article posted on mail online, that went on to go viral. I was then contacted by
then on to a recent article on AOL news called 10,000 Pens = 1 Crazy Mercedes by Michael McLaughlin.
This beautifully wrapped box of used pens came this week from Joanna C. all the way from Singapore and I took multiple pictures wanting to savor the moment. These used pens came wrapped in brown paper which I carefully removed to reveal the Black & Decker automatic dry iron box. Once I had this box opened I spilled the used pens on the ground to behold the treasure within. It was a windy fall day and a few dry redwood leaves were included in the final shot. Is it possible I could end up writing a novel about pens??? Who knows, but in any case I a big thanks goes out to my new friend in Joanna. Costas Schuler aka The Pen Guy has a real job as a graphic designer in Sonoma County and can be reached by email.
Thank you for the pens all the way from Washington DC. This is part of my commitment to thank every one who sends pens.
