Before I get started, I need to say that this isn’t my pen. I’m borrowing it from Jim because it deserves a pen porn post.

He’d wanted one of these “sea urchin” pens since Stanford Pen Studio first posted one. These dotted pens are painted by Di herself. Jim just happened to be lucky enough to scoop this one up when it posted.

Now, onto the photos!

The color scheme is lovely: yellow, mauve, and burnt orange.

We didn’t discover that some of the paint is sparkly until I photographed the pen for this post.

I love the gentle gradient from bright yellow to nearly white on the larger dots.

And β€” I’m not sure if this was intentional β€” the bright dots near the center seem to be a bit translucent, giving them a greenish halo with the black background showing through.

Like with all Stanford Pen Studio pens, it has the pretty grown finial coin and the SPS and crown logo on the nib.

Last but not least, it came with this beautifully coordinating pen sleeve.

Di and Dave β€” and their artists, when they collaborate β€” truly think of everything. Is it any wonder that Stanford Pen Studio has exploded in popularity?
