It's time for another Fountain Pen Contest!

This time the theme will be...
Inspiration

The contest will run from October 1 through October 31, 2012.

The results will be announced on Saturday November 3, 2012.

There will be 12 judges giving points to their top 12 choices. Points will range from 1 - 100.

Prizes will be a nice assortment of pens from a variety of donors. Photos of each prize pen will be posted over the course of the month with the name of donor (unless otherwise specified). We already have three pens that are quite nice; I hope to pick up a few more from our friends at the San Francisco Pen Show this week!

If YOU would like to donate a pen let me know with a photo via email (pb@pendletonspens.com). Posted Image


The rules are simple.

1 ~ Fountain Pen(s) and ink(s) only ~ Pens and inks should be named or even pictured for maximum points.

2 ~ Post your entries on this this thread ( trying not to quote this lead posting Posted Image ... yawn ...)


3 ~ The handwritten or drawn content must be
inspirational. Yes, that leaves it pretty open; except we must abide by FPN rules (nothing that could be considered naughty or overtly "religious"). Moderators can chose to bounce an entry that does not abide. :) It can be original or otherwise and should be so noted. Write something of truth, something noble, right, pure, admirable, virtuous and praiseworthy.


Unadorned example:

Kindly let me know if I have left anything unexplained, and I will attempt to do so.


Enjoy!

Very cool so far! Posted Image

Additional notes from question asked:

More than one entry is OK. Try to keep variation on same theme a genuine variation.

Judges will be encouraged to consider content as well as execution.

Keep 'em coming!

Here's my entry! Probably not my only one, but my first submission to the thread. :)

Here's my entry. Sorry, but I had to break it up into multiple images -- the file was too large, even after I tried to crop it....

Oh, BTW, the paper is Xerox 24 lb. 96 bright Multipurpose Plus paper.
Fun contest. It's going to be interesting to see what other people's entries will be over the next few weeks.
And if we *can* enter more than once, I just might be... inspired :thumbup: ....

Inspired by a Sheaffer Prelude (2mm stub, I think), Rotring 1.5mm stub, Aurora Ipsilon Deluxe w/ 14k italic nib, and a collection of Levenger inks. (What fun! :thumbup:)

I'm thoroughly enjoying this thread and have appreciated everyone's entry.

inky_artist, my jaw dropped when I saw your journal. Wow. Is that a generally daily habit for you, or just special occasions?

rvisser, that's a lovely pairing of Ahab barrel and ink colors. :thumbup:

Mitch

PS: Maybe I'll overcome my intimidation and work up my own entry.

Over the years I have gifted this book more than any other. And even if one don't speak the language, this bit of French is worth taking to heart. (Translation: "Here is my secret, it is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.")
