That winter, I finally used the mechanic knitting machine Benoît gave me a few years ago. Thus I was able to dress up warmly the transparent ballpens I had. Then I had the idea to decorate these pens from the inside, to create geometric patterns adapted to this small and cylindric shape.
For 5 months, full-time, I became a pen stylist for transparent ballpens. I did 2200 tries on Photoshop and kept 50.
Of course, I offered my « outfits » to BIC, but unfortunately they declined my proposition.
So I decided to sell them so that they can parade in your hands.
There are three types : the chatty, the handsome and the useful ones.
Here are a few examples, they are sold, with the others
at L'Atelier Papeterie 97 rue de Belleville Paris 19 (only there).
You will find them next to my notepads and copybooks whose geometric pattern covers were designed while I was creating new patterns for the pens.
A decorated pen is 3.50€. Careful : the 50 designs on sale are all different, therefore unique.
