LOL - thank you! It was and it was so fun! Hopefully people will like them. I will share photos once they have started to arrive.  ;D
@Erica McPhee
Wow. Mine arrived yesterday and it's terrific. Just what I needed in the morning. And the envelope--really, really nice. Just grand.

I believe the referenced video is between Bill and Ann Cobb, unless I am mistaken.
You are correct--the video was posted by Jody Meese and the interview of Bill was conducted by Ann Cobb. Sorry for the confusion.

Has anyone seen this one: StoneGraph Executive Flex Nib Fountain Pen. I had never seen it but now Instagram and Pinterest won't stop advertising it to me. (I'm sure because of my recent purchase.) Paul Antonio does a demonstration on the site.

Interesting, when I click on that link, my security system (Bitdefender) temporarily blocks it, warning that it may download injurious software onto my computer, and asks me if I want to proceed to the website anyway (I didn't). Perhaps it's downloading cookies onto your system, resulting in the ads you're seeing.

In the spirit of this quote of Conrad Hall, I'm posting this rough bit of work (the first sentence I've written today). Do you agree with Hall?

You might notice here ghosts of other letters. As I use both sides of practice paper, work from another day is on the back of this piece of paper. I generally fill one side and put it aside to dry and use the second side another day. No sense wasting paper.

@Erica McPhee When did you start the Flourish Forum??  It just occurred to me that I have no idea when the Forum was started.  I found it in the spring of 2014 & I *think* that I was an early adopter, but maybe I'm wrong about that.

I can help answer that.
The first member was, of course, Erica, signing in on 10-15-2013.
The next three new members signed in on 10-28-2013.
Of the 200 or so new members who joined in 2013, only two could be considered still active--Estepha on 11-22-2013 and Starlee on 12-10-2013.

You are indeed an early adopter--not to many still active from 04-15-2014. I signed in first on 05-30-2014, although I was lurking for some time before that.

If you sign in and go to the members list, you can see all the members and when they first registered (by clicking on the registration date at the top--it will change the ordering). You can order by other things too, like number of posts, etc. It's fun seeing who came and went, and an easy way to see what long gone members posted.

Just WOW about your two proposals!  Both are lovely & strong!  Erica, I love your peach blossoms!  Mike, how did you know that Atlanta's symbol was a Phoenix??  I live in Amarillo & our symbol is a cowboy boot.  Lots of those around here!  ;D

There is a lovely bronze statue downtown of a woman being lifted from flames by a phoenix, it's on the city seal and flag, and on the patch the Atlanta Fire Department wears, among other places. A most appropriate symbol for the city.

Maybe IAMPETH will come to Amarillo one day, and you can use the boot in a logo.

Wonderful story, @Erica McPhee  Thanks for posting. Here's a link that has Marilyn Harrer in action from the original posting of the story in May.

Love it @Erica McPhee Good chance to have won it. I also had an entry on the last day possible (they extended the deadline for a week, and I thought they might need entries. Turns out, they got over 200, so they weren't lacking. As the 2020 design wasn't used and was in Spencerian, I played around with a form of uncial (5th-9th C). Had I more time, it would of been more detailed and fun, but only had a few hours to play with it.
The phoenix is the symbol of the city of Atlanta, as in the city arising from the ashes of the civil war after Sherman burned it to the ground, hence the "A".

I asked to see the submissions for the 2021 logo & was told that they would bring them out, but they never did. 
Hi @JanisTX .
Do you happen to remember who you asked about the logo submissions? I'll ask that person directly about them. If not, I'll email IAMPETH generally.
Glad you had a good time and came back safe.

Using a very sharp pencil, such as the one pictured here--Pentel Orenz pp502 0.2--using only the weight of the pencil (or less) to draw the lines produces a very fine line, leaves no indentation, and is easy to erase. Agree with others that tinting Dr. Martin's Bleedproof white with gouache works well to hide any lines.

I will post pics!  I was hoping that you & Jean would be there!

They said they will post the entries for the 2022 IAMPETH convention logo. If they post these on a large board or wall, I'd love to see a photo of them.
