The Pen Guy 4x6 postcards have been out now since last summer and so far I still have 8000 of them to give out. One of the goals of this project was to continue the "Pen Guy" brand and explain the story of the Mercedes Pens as a road trip spanning the last 3.5 years. The art on the back was from another project that never happened and felt it was a shame to waste all that time. So I actually recycled some design work for the first time ever, but it seemed to make sense in this case. I basically stopped short of the kitchen sink and put all the info I needed to have and I got some feedback saying it was too busy. I meant it that way, because if you noticed the car is pretty much the same way. I also added some important quotes along the way that came out of the buildings, and a few road signs as well. The ironic thing is that I got shot in the eye with a marker the day these came out, ironic since I had put up a sign on the back that said "caution flying pens". Full story here.
