Announcing The Pen Addict + Mintlodica Retro 51 Pastel Shiba

The Pen Addict + Mintlodica Retro 51 Pastel Shiba

Get it right here.

I first met Susan Lin at the 2014 XOXO Festival in Portland, Oregon, and have been following her work ever since. Not only is she an artist and designer, she is a tech leader and champion of Women in Tech. In short, she is awesome.

In following her for as long as I have, I was very familiar with her style and aesthetic. It is right up my alley, and I knew as soon as I saw this image that it would be perfect for a Retro 51. Now, I just had to ask her if she was interested in collaborating with me. Thankfully, she said yes!

Working on this project with Susan, and in conjunction with Retro 51, has gone as smoothly as I could have hoped. We are thrilled at the outcome, and cannot wait to get the Pastel Shiba into your hands.

This year, I am not only selling a pen and supporting art, I am adding a charity component as well. Starting now, I will be donating $1000 during each Retro 51 project to a charity of the artists choosing. Susan has chosen the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and I am happy to donate to their excellent cause.

I hope you enjoy The Pen Addict + Mintlodica Retro 51 Pastel Shiba as much as we enjoyed making it!
