I'm back! From Cincinnati to New Jersey, and Mondo Tondo Portfolio

Dear blog- this is just terrible. Unacceptable- over a year?!?
And goodness- ALL the things that just happened in that year!

So well, I spent a year starting Sept 2013 working at Haney Inc, a fabulous packaging and design company in Cincinnati. I started in prototyping- mockups for package designs, and was quickly whisked into Client Services, where I assisted running several large-scale, Procter & Gamble projects. We worked on a lot of billion dollar brands, but namely Cascade, Gillette, Tide, and Old Spice/Olay as well as Always, Tampax and the new Always Discreet. It sure was a whirlwind and quite the learning experience for me!

Hangin'- out in the Haney cubicle

and lots of meetings with clients!

But alas, change kept calling and out of the blue in August, I learned of a job opening at The Printmaking Center of New Jersey- and oh how I longed to go back east and get inky again! So with tears of missing friends, but happy to be back with family, we loaded up a U-haul and headed out. In the interim, however, I was thrown at least 5 rollicking good farewell parties from both Haney and Tiger Lily Press!

Farewell to the lovely Tiger Lily crew!

Partying it up in style :)

So here I am, new Studio Program Manager at PCNJ,

Hangin' out with the ink and presses, helping lots of members make their work!

and below is a great tale of my journey- the travels of a stone litho to be completed for the Southern Graphics Conference, Knoxville 2015. Take a look!
