Fall 2007 upon my return from Sicily I felt like a new person. I was fortunate enough to swap out some mandatory design and drawing classes with a screen printing class and painting class with Professor Tony Miraglia, whom I traveled to Sicily with.

I started exploring more and breaking rules I once thought couldn't be broken without getting hammered in a crit. The hands on screen printing and painting class helped me break free, they should have been curriculum requirements. School became fun.

Other classes included Typography 4 with Laura Franz, which consisted of creating a full typeface based on whaling journals from New Bedford, and Graphic Design 5 with Jan Fairbairn, whom guided the 7lbs2ounces project.
