Gary Blehm, a.k.a. Penman, created what would become PENMEN in a one room school house near Aspen, Colorado in 1977. 
The character would take him on a 25 year journey of optimism with popular posters, book, newspaper syndication, and a short series animation for European television.
This photo was taken of Gary Blehm, Penman, as a promo to his newly syndicated comic strip. The PENMEN figures are hand made with wooden dowel and wire. Once the photograph was taken the Penmen were sent to Creators Syndicate for promotional gifts of optimism to editors. The photograph published in Editor and Publisher magazine the following year.
