[Sold] Pinocchio hand-painted fountain pen


Continuing on her theme of illustrating classic children’s books, Hanna Farmer has created an exceptionally detailed Pinocchio. She has drawn scenes of the lonely Geppetto carving his marionettes; the little Pinocchio dressed as a young boy, wishing he could come to life; the wily fox, named J Worthington Foulfellow in the 1949 movie, and his dim cat sidekick who lead the impressionable youngster astray; Pinocchio killing the cricket who acts as his conscience; his misery as his nose grows with his perpetual lying; the magical bird who informs Pinocchio of Gepetto’s demise having been swallowed by a whale, and Pinocchio being prepared to sacrifice his own life to save his creator. In the background is the exceptionally detailed Tuscan countryside, a sunflower-bright sun, and a typical Italian town on the skyline. And all of this on a fountain pen!

The pen was made by us at Stanford Pen Studio, painted and zendoodled by Hanna then coated in a clear resin by ourselves and given its final shape, polished, and buffed. It has a silver cap band, section ring, and silver logo medallion in the cap finial, and we have added a bright orange grip section.

Each of our hand-painted fountain pens is a 1/1 original work of art, hence no-one else will ever own an identical pen.


Available in Jowo #6 in polished steel. Please select Fine, Medium or Broad at the check-out.

The Jabulani model


This is a gently curvaceous model, with a relatively wide girth of 16 mm (0,6″) narrowing to a 10,5 mm (0,4″)  grip section. It has our logo on the finial, and the finial is ever-so-slightly rounded, rather than dead flat, which adds to the pen’s elegance.
