I like the clean lines and colours and the way the pangram repeats itself as a pattern in and out of focus. My Pelikan was a gift from a relation frustrated at my persistently illegible handwriting (certainly wouldn't fork out good money for something so hopeless as a means of improving my scrawl!).
Living in France, I feel (sort of) obliged to offer a pangram in French:
"Portez ce vieux whisky au juge blond qui fume", which is a bit more intriguing than the English animal farm most of us recall. My literal rendering - take this old whisky to the smoking blond judge - has an almost surreal quality.
As I suggested, the whole 'challenge / competition' thing can be misleading. Just look at the effort and the output from CathyB! Isn't the 'inspiration' concept a good one? Would you like to give the rest of us a theme for next Tuesday or shall we ask one of the others?
