Pen porn

I finally caved in and took pictures inside of all my pretty pens. I mean… I do have a few more, but these are my favourites at the moment. Look at all the colours! I would have done nice, daylight, clear pictures, but nooo, today had to be all grey and stupid.

 

Oooh, look. I played a little bit with the colours in this one, sorry if it burns your retinas.

 

Close-up of some, with no messing around with the colours.

 

All of them spilling out of the pencil case. Which is huge, and still has space for more!

 

Some of my silly little doodles I did, mostly with my brand new Uni-ball Signo DXs. Will be getting a few more of those… but then no more, because really, I need to enjoy what I have for a while :D That’s a cool cat with sunglasses and a bandana, btw, he just used his ninja-skills to get a fish. And that sideways gnome is angry that you forgot his obligatory payoff of the day, so he’s throwing all your important notes in the garbage.

 

Now I’m off to do some laundry  conquer the avalanche that’s threatening to take over the apartment. If you don’t hear from me, send help. And cookies.

love the colors!

your doodles make me want all those signo dx's >.<

i find myself using less black and blue ink and more colors these days... must be something about being trapped at work :o)

Gorgeous! Yeah I really want all those Signo DX colours too!! I love the arrangement. So pretty!

Shade: I buy my pens either from jstationery.com (small orders), or from Wubear on ebay (larger orders, because his prices are the best I've found)

diysara: I used to be all about either black or purple pens, but as you can see, that has passed :p They're just so happy-looking!

Gentian: Thank you :) No reason not to get all the colours, they're not that expensive! And guess what, they're even waterproof ;)(yes, I'm an evil enabler)

Awesome pictures, such a great collection of pens...all of the colors are amazing....Im used to most of my dull black, and other colors mixed with black.

Marte said...

Nrepose: Yes, you do! ;)

Tzeni: I survived the laundry! And the dishes! It's a miracle! :p

OSG: Thank you :) I avoid black pens like the plague these days, it's all about the colours! Good thing I don't need to be serious for a job, I'll enjoy the luxury while I can!

Quite a nice selection of pens. I love my black Signo DX 0.38 black gel pen. Though I would caution against stocking up on more gel pens that one could reasonably use within a couple years. I already had to throw away several gel pens and roller ball pens that dried up while in storage.

Marte said...

B2-kun: I've had a Uni-ball Signo pen last me for nearly 7 years without drying, so I'm not too worried :)
