It's funny to think about how long men and women have been communicating with written symbols. From the crude drawings on cave walls to our near instantaneous digital mediums, I find myself presently working in both worlds. I make hand-turned pens out of wood - not much different in purpose and principle than the charcoal pieces used thousands of years ago. And now I find myself creating a way to share my passion of building pens through the transmission of ones and zeroes too numerous to count. This first blog entry on this new website is oddly about the process of creating a digital representation of a tangible tool. This is the first post on the internet!
