Jeni is a pun enthusiast and a tenacious local entrepreneur. BehindTheBits represents her goofy mind and all the silly personalities she gives to inanimate objects. A "behind the scenes" of her mind, if you will. Each punny illustration is original, and each item is hand-printed with love right here in Arizona! Jeni loves experimenting and perfecting sublimation techniques, while also working with other artists throughout the country to plaster their original pieces on everyday items customers can use (like mugs, prints, bags, etc.).
She's been selling her work professionally since 2015 and is a former event director for multi-faceted artist events. She has an Associates Degree in the Arts and is currently working on her Associates in Marketing, with a Certificate in Social Media Marketing. She's also the winner of the Little Pitch competition on behalf of both Radnaut.com and Scottsdale Community College.
BehindTheBits is currently displayed at the Merchantile in both Scottsdale and Phoenix.
I also attend First Fridays regularly <3
"In this episode, we talk with Jeni, owner of BehindTheBits, who is a cartoonist and pun enthusiast from Arizona. Her love for comics and drawing have led her to where she is today. She took the leap of faith and quit her day job to focus on her small businesses full time and she gladly admits that she has never looked back! I hope you enjoy listening to her story and please make sure to subscribe!"
"Some entrepreneurs turned their hobbies into startup companies during the pandemic." Watch as I talk to 3TV about becoming a full time artist, launching Radnaut, and that more people are going out of their way to shop small.
