Sometimes it’s not what you plan that goes through, but what you do on the fly. I met Steve Light of stevelightart.com, his wife Christine and their sunshine-loving cat the morning of the day I left NYC. We played with pens, ate bagels and had an absolutely pen-nerdy time.
Steve draws with fountain pens, and he has a lot of them to choose from. I particularly liked a Montblanc 149 with a custom flex nib, and an Edison with a giant nib that could eat worlds.
He signed a copy of his book The Christmas Giant for me. If I could have smiled for 12,000 kilometers after that, I would have. Thanks, guys. Pen people are the best people. 🙂
