Hi Everybody! It’s time to announce the winner of the free custom pen for February! This month we had 40 entries, and from those the winner is #20, John M. Congrats!
We have raised $4016.60 so far for scholarships this year, $348 of that just this month. Thank you all so much for your participation.
We just got in three new sets of postcards that I’m very proud of. These aren’t just student art cards though; these images were donated by artists from all around the world. I’m still putting together another set or two with more student art, so keep your eyes peeled.
The images were chosen by myself and the other members of the Newton Pens Scholarship board. Thanks to everybody who donated and gave us permission to use their art. We really appreciate it.
First is Set #2016-2 has art from a Lakeside HS student, illustrator Jamison Odone, a photo from Preeda Dulyachinda, the famous Leigh Reyes, and fountain pen lover and community supporter Matthew Morse.
Next is Set #2016-1 has art by HSU ceramics professor Aaron Calvert (who was very gracious when he passed me from Ceramics II), L.A.-based artist Joey Feldman, Leigh Reyes, Matthew Morse, and French artist Phil Gil.
Finally we have the City Series. These were taken in New York and London by HSU professor David Stoddard.
These will be easily available to purchase from the postcard page.
Remember, by purchasing postcards you are automatically entered to win Thomas Hall’s first Shinobi in a grand drawing to be held at the end of May.
I have two more special prizes that were donated by Karas Kustoms for two winners for the March drawing. The only things you’ll need to pick are what color material you want your section made from and the nib point.
You can see the pens were donated without nibs and sections.
As always, if you have any questions about any of this at all, please send me an email.
