Hooligan Raging Red Custom Pen January 2017 photo credit: Tim Cullen First Impression Reverie... This is a custom pen designed and created by Tim Cullen of Hooligen Pen Co.

Hooligan V #2/20 photo credit: Tim Cullen photo credit: Tim Cullen First Impression WOW! Pictures do not capture the luster of this pen! It is gorgeous.

I made it!! My first pen show 😊😊😊 Yay!!! I attended the SF pen show Friday, from 7 am- 4:30 pm. I feel like I did it right considering it was my first fp show ever, I was mentally short circuited with excitement, and I was only able to attend one day then dash out of town before 5 pm or turn into a pumpkin. I worked the registration desk from 7 til noon. This was good because I got to wrap my head around the idea I was in a place where every pen I could dream of was being held... I purchased my first FP at the registration desk, an Eagle with nice flex & variation from John Shumaker. And t
