Pen Guy makes it on the Smithsothian Blog

Wow how cool is that, I made it on the Smithosian Channel with a great article called Recycle Your Pens by Andrea Michnik. Great Job!!I have been taking it easy lately but have continued to collect pens often wondering what the next step will be. Just today I got charged up again and determined in my mind that I needed to get a hold of more pens. The funny thing is that this article came out for the world to see and know that I am man on the hunt for the worlds supply of old pens. Funny how things work out for good in the grand scheme of things.

I don’t know why I got in my head to do this and put it out there, but sometimes you have to follow that inspiring dream and not worry about the how. The journey is much more important than the end result and so far this journey has been amazing. I have met so many people who I would never had met if not been for the Mercedes Pens Art Car.

The only real plan for now is to just keep going, collecting and going after my dream. I do need all the help I can get and that is why I need you out there to collect and send in those pens. At some point I will need building space to house all these pens, to sort and begin the process of transforming these old pens into art and other useful stuff. I will need supplies, expertise, funds and a vast network of people who have caught the vision and want to be a part of something really big and at the very least, a pretty darn interesting experiment.
