[CONTEST] Win A Skull Pen From Jac Zagoory Designs

This contest has ended.  Thanks to everyone who entered with your comments.  Stay tuned for more contests coming soon.

It's been said, and written, that the pen is mightier than the sword, and in today's legalized mumbo jumbo world those words have never been truer. Of course it's always nice to get a chance to reflect on our thoughts and write them down with a quality writing utensil.  An essay, haiku, or love note would all be that much better with this skull pen from Jac Zagoory Designs.  The quality of the pen will surely inspire quality of thought.  A reminder of life's brevity puts enlightenment in your hand.  Keep reading to find out how to win, and also how to get a 15% discount on your order.



"This is a reminder to live in the gift of the moment aptly referred to as the PRESENT.  Write down our desires which are the seeds of our abundant future.  Perfect for skull collectors, bikers and those who are busy at living life, not living in the fear of dying.  A favorite of many doctors and artists. We all have a skull---it represents life. Reach for Inspiration!"- taken from Jac Zagoory website.

I think the first thing what I would write is "I love this skull pen" and "Osoitz"(my husband's name).

In all honesty, it would be something like, "Read your paper aloud and you'll hear those awkward sentences" or "Instructions for how to properly cite a website are on pages 236-237...don't just make things up."

Teaching English is repetitive.

I would probably quote Jonathan Lethem, "I can't bear the ringing in my skull." followed by an ornate "Thank You!" with huge flourishes!

"Dear sir/ madam" as I am currently (f)unemployed and looking for a new job, going old school with nice hand written letters may help...

Leave a Legacy Not a Footprint said...

The first thing I would write with this pen would be the classic sentence, "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" in my ink journal (pen junkies journal just for testing pens and different inks.)

gonzo said...

First, I would just move the pen on the paper, draw few lines and shapes and observed them, see how they make me feel. Then, thinking those are fitting first words for a pen of this awesomeness, I would write my favourite quote from Pablo Neruda's love poem: "Let life not separate us, and who cares about death." I wish we had the skull pen last time I have seen the quote written. It was at the bottom of the bunk bed in San Francisco hostel and my friend and I only had a sharpie.

aleasha.burbidge@gmail.com

Heart said...

I would write my name, followed by my fave Neil Gaiman quote: "People think dreams aren't real just because they aren't made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.”

I would write it on the front page of my sketchbook, followed by a Skull illustration

InkMarqued said...

Mine!

inkmarqued@gmail.com

Tina said...

Probably the date, or a lecture heading. Skull pen would earn mad props in my science classes (I'm a scientific illustration major).

DebSea said...

"Oh my, this skull pen writes wonderfully. Thank you!" full of loops and flourishes would be my intended writing, but it would probably be a phone message due to having the pen frequently in hand.

I would scribe,

My Hell

Somewhere in the darkness
In a dark and faraway place
I can feel the pain and hatredness
Upon each tortured face
As I see the demons dancing there
ringing that final bell
Satan stands before me
And points my way to Hell

Tim A McGinnis
Sometime in 1981

O and I collect sculls and things with sculls on them. As I'm sure everyone who comments in here does.
Pick me! Pick me!
