Used Pens Arrive Safely from Michigan

Used Pens Arrive Safely from Michigan

These used pens just came in from Lake Geneva Michigan sent by Tia M. and triple bagged for safety. The pens came wrapped inside a Target bag within a USPS priority envelope within a brown paper envelope. Tia understands that these used pens are important to my one million pen project and wanted to make sure none were damaged during the shipping process.
Big shout out to Tia.

By the way, the blue bowl on the left side of the picture contains cookie dough.

Pen Covered Mail Box 2.0 ready to receive mail

Last Sunday during the making of the Pen Guy documentary we shot the creation of the pen covered mail box version 2.0. Paul filmed me in my workshop opening up my mail, taken the pens out and covering this mail box with donated pens. I was also filmed picking up this box of pens at the Forestville post office.
The used pens were donated by Hanna F. and sent in from Washington DC who also said in a note:

“Enjoy the pens! I hope they live on in an awesome art project”. – Hannah

Thank you Hanna, your pens will live on my new pen covered mail box for a long time. And it will make my mail man and my neighbors smile come rain or shine.

Recycled Pens From Goodwill inside the Mercedes Pens
This mother lode of used pens was extracted from the guts of “Buddy” the pen eating droid now located at Goodwill Industries on Yolanda Ave. in Santa Rosa California. He was only there for about two weeks but as word spread about him many came to make sure he was filled up with old pens, markers, some pencils and a few crayons.  Goodwill has a massive operation and have earned the top pen recycling award of the month.Cant wait to visit again this weekend while filming a documentary about the Pen Guy by Paul Myers, a film student from Stanford University.

Pen Guy Holding Used Pen From Home Valley Bank

This used Black Bic Grip Roller Pen was sent in by Nathan from Grants Pass, OR. This is all that ‘s left from Home Valley Bank that was recently closed down by The Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services. Read article here.

I don’t know about you but this pen could be worth something one day so maybe I should start collecting pens from business that no longer exist. Its sad but thank you Nathan for sending this pen in and may the Home Valley Bank get a second life riding on the Mercedes pens Art Car for years to come.

Chia Pet made from 500 Pens

Bed of nailsmade from 500 Pens

The first ever Chia Pet made from 500 pens was made possible from a generous donation from Amsterdam Printing who included the Mercedes Pens Art car as one of the top 11 most bizarre branding collections. Thank you very much. They sent me a box of metallic branded pens that were miss prints and this is what I did with them.
