If I can make an art car, so can you...
Costas Schuler, "The Pen Guy," immigrated to this country in 1985 with a dream, that one day, without fear of artistic persecution, he could create a Mercedes car covered in 10,000 pens. His dream came true, and he's now the president of a consulting firm called Art Car Central, traveling the country helping others create and build their own art cars. "If I can make an art car, so can you..."
Costas Schuler is graphic/web designer and owner of Envisionary Design by day and the Pen Guy the rest of the time. He has managed to collect and reuse over over 10,000 dead pens in the past five years for his Mercedes Pens art car. Most of the pens have been donated from schools, business, thrift shops and by mail from around the country and even from other parts of the world. He is also married with three beautiful girls.
