  2. Do they have a rehab for your condition? Cute idea:)

  3. Heh! I like the black/white and red simplicity of the colors. So what exactly are the symptoms of a "penaholic" besides a mass of pens?

  4. Great mood set with simple lines! Very fun!

  5. Ooo you're fast! I like this though, nice and and simple. TExt is a bit hard to read though =/

    Pens are indeed awesome. It's like when you go into a stationary shop and you want EVERYTHING.

  7. Yeah, I know what you mean. Recently I drew this robot and coloured it entirely in neon highlighters (slightly obsessed with neon right now), which is all well and good, buthighlighters don't scan too well =/

    Which is what they're designed for I suppose... not to show up on photocopiers and the like =P

  18. yes, not a bad addiction! but if i open the door and you are sitting there with a pen in each nostril i am shipping you off to Promises toot, sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Let me help feed the addiction! Check out the Pentel Pen Brush!

    It will feed your need for another pen, and give you the freedom you are having with your painting.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I´am penaholic and pencilaholic too...

    ReplyDelete
  36. I know what you mean! And when someone wants to borrow a pen from me...you know, a regular, non-artist person, I shudder because they press down on the delicate point and NEVER remember to replace the cap!! No wonder I need therapy :P

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am totally addicted to pens. Especially my technical pens. Touch them and I will have to kill you.... Great illo!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. heh heh... i'm a penaholic too! in fact- all kinds of stationery!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hello Willie! I'm computer-mouse'o'holic - and you know what? I don't want to be cured!

    And you must not be cured - then we should do without your great drawings - and I don't want to do that! Keep going!

    ReplyDelete
  40. OMG, I used to be such a penaholic in high-school!!! I spent all my money on new-shinny pens. Not anymore though...I can barely find one when I need to write something down!

    ReplyDelete
  48. This reminds me of my pen collection too..although I haven't use them for a while...their my little tresaure too!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I thought about drawing a paradise of little flowering paintbrushes, little pokey pens, and trees ripe with cans of tempura...

    I tend to collect buttons and fabric remnants. I guess this probably means I'm not an artist, but a seamstress.

    Your linework is brilliant. I always find myself saying (to myself), "oh. yes!" when I come here. There's always so much to see in your work.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I like this paradise !

    ReplyDelete
  51. Count me one. This is dark darling, and I'm a penaholic.

  52. one of lifes pleasures:

    Finding the half dead chewed up pen, that makes your writing look better then it actually is, that you lost end of last year.

    Twas a good day.

    As always, this is.. too good.

  53. Pens paradise... Good paradise idea!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I can definitely relate - I'm actually such a pen/pencil nerd I bought one of those things from the hardware store that is supposed to house nails, bolts, screws, etc., and made it my portable writing implement case. Pretty nerdy, huh?

    ReplyDelete
