Mercedes Pens to Appear at Sonoma Family Expo April 9, 2010

Recycled Pen Donated from Grace School, NY NY
I will be appearing at the Sonoma Family Expo with the Mercedes Pens Friday April 9th, 2010 at the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts, from 3:30 – 8:oo pm. I will be there collecting old pens and making custom pen recycling bins for those of you who want to put your business on the pen recycling location map.

I also received a third installment of recycled pens from Grace Church School in New York City collected by their wonderful, amazing and dedicated Green Team. I took this shot early this morning as the sun was coming through my kitchen window. Thanks guys for the Crayola Markers.

Pen Guy Store Now Open – T Shirts and Swag for Sale

The Pen Guy Store - Get Pen Guy T Shirts and More

The Pen Guy is proud to announce the grand opening of the Pen Guy T Shirt and Swag Store, located on Zazzle. The primary purpose of my online T Shirt store is to raise funds for much needed repairs on the Pen Car running strong now with a meer 272k miles. For now I have one design up but will be adding many more in the coming weeks.I did all this in anticipation of a very busy week in the media for the Pen Guy.

Today I was interviewed for a feature piece for the Bohemian and will probably be coming out next week or the week after. Tomorrow I will drive down to SF for more shooting for the Doggie Boggie movie. And tomorrow night at 10.00 pm I will be on Eye On The Bay, CBS channel 5 for their Friday Flea Market segment. They gave me a minute and half to tell the bay area that I am available for appearances, anywhere in the bay area to show off the pen car, speak and pick up old pens.

My primary goal is to bring pen recycling awareness to the bay area with a massive Pen Drive and collect a million pens for future projects and maybe one day open up Pentopia.

So all I ask is that you:

  1. Watch the show
  2. Collect your pens
  3. Email me
  4. Schedule an appearance
  5. Buy a T shirt

Is that too much to ask?:)

Pen Rainbow Inside the Mercedes Pens on the way to Art Car Fest

Pen Rainbow Inside the Mercedes Pens
Its nice to finally have enough pens collected to be able to create an entire pen rainbow on the inside of Mercedes Pens Art Car roof. I just finished this beauty yesterday and with a colorful interior like mine, a rainbow seemed like the right thing to do. The inside is the safest place to do this considering the sun and weather eventually destroy all pens on the outside of the pen car. I know its a weird shape but I still have more space to fill out the area around it with more pens. I have less than a month to get ready for the big art car event called Art Car Fest September 25-27th, so I need to get busy repairing the missing and damaged pens. Art Car Fest is three days of hanging out with other art car folks showing our creations to the public. I will also be collecting old pens so if you have them please fill free to come and drop them off, I would love take them off your hands. Think of all the free space you’ll have for more stuff.

This year you will be able to enjoy art cars at Art Car Fest at these locations:

Day 1 – Friday, September 25th

Day 2 – Saturday, September 26th

Day 3 – Sunday, September 27th

Mercedes Pens at Maker Fair 2009 – Again this Year

4th Annual Maker Faire Bay Area, 4x6 Flyer
Its that time again, I just sign the release from and will be headed off to maker faire May 30 & 31, 2009. Here is a quote from their site:

The World’s Largest DIY Festival
A two-day, family-friendly event to MAKE, create, learn, invent, CRAFT, recycle, think, play and be inspired by celebrating arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology.

I will headed down San Mateo with my Mercedes Pens Car covered in more pens then I can possibly imagine. I am still collecting new and used pens and have managed to hoard a entire trunk full again this year. And now that I have more time on my hands due to the fact that I was recently “downsized” due to the “bad economy” I can spend more time working my Freelance Graphic Design Business called Envisionary Design and take more breaks. That means I can go out to the garage and glue more pens on my Mercedes Pens any time I want. My goal is to go nuts and completely cover the inside of the car with a brand new layer of pens. The Mercedes Pens now has 265k miles and needs some TLC. The front left window needs a brand new lifter, new rear brakes and an oil change. I also need to replace the motor mounts, shocks and valve cover seal to name a few. If anyone wants to help out with a donation of money or parts please feel free and let me know, I would love to talk to you. Or if you need a professional freelance graphic designer with 15 years experience email me at: mercedes.pens[at]
