I love the design idea of Yin & yang – good vs evil. Opposing forces which makes something complete.
I also enjoy Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts design of something.
I applied none of these techniques when I created this pen.
It’s just a pen.
My motivation was that I couldn’t find the TV remote.

Did I mention it writes in black ink?

As I just completed my wife’s teachers pen, I read this and am laughing my rear off.

I truly see where you were coming from man. I see the love/hate relationship that represents the same in the world… I love when a project is just a project, great work.
