spirits online art journal class


"Spirits" online art journal class taught by artist Roxanne Coble (aka BY BUN)

WHEW! you guys. I’m so freakin’ stoked to finally share with you the complete details for my brand-spankin-new online art journal class…SPIRITS. the class officially launches this Friday!

"SPIRITS" online art journal class by artist Roxanne Coble (aka BY BUN)

this class has been a real labor of love these past few months. and to give you a little backstory, ‘Spirits’ is an online version of one of my most popular in-person classes ‘Illustrated Mini Portraits’. the in-person class is typically taught over a two or three day period, so this gives you a sense of just how BIG this class is. Spirits is by far my largest online class I’ve ever produced…clocking in at nearly 6 hours of instruction!

I’ve dedicated an entire page of my website just for this new class, which you can check out here. it’s got everything you need to know: the class description, what’s included, the price, faq’s, etc. and of course, I’ve created a video trailer for the class which you can watch below.

just like when I launched Creatures & Lyrical, I’ll be doing a little giveaway on Friday when the class goes live on Etsy! the first 20 students who enroll in the class will receive what I call a ‘Spirit Pack’. sent via snail mail, it includes a hand painted artist trading card (of an illustrated spirit), a sweet die-cut sticker, some bits of my personal packing tape, and a mini art print! these launch-day giveaways typically go super fast, so I highly recommend being ready at 8am PST on Friday if you want to snag a ‘Spirit Pack’!

so there you have it. it’s been 8 months since I launched my last online class, and I have to tell you that I think ‘Spirits’ was worth the wait. I’ve put a lot of really great touches, detail, techniques, love, energy, and all around great creative vibes into this class…and I hope you’ll join me!

…see you Friday 😉


lyrical online art journal class


I’m absolutely thrilled to finally share with you the trailer and details for my new online art journal class LYRICAL!

I don’t think I’ve ever been THIS STOKED to put an online class out there. this particular class is very personal for me – as it truly mirrors my current art making process and style. I was so excited about designing this class in fact, that it ended up being the biggest online class I’ve ever created!


I’ve made a page on my website that is fully dedicated to the “LYRICAL” class. this page features what’s included in the class, the price, where to buy, and even some FAQ’s. hop on over here to get all of the details.

also to note, I will be doing another giveaway for the first 20 students who sign up for the class on August 1st. I’ll be sharing more details and sample photos of that item soon (*wink!).

so mark your calendars, and I look forward to you seeing you in class!

CREATURES online art journal class


ahhhh!! I’m literally dancing, shouting from rooftops, and running around like a maniac because I’m so freaking excited….it’s here you guys. it’s finally here. allow me to introduce you to my new online art journal class “Creatures”…

this class has literally been years in the making, and I’m so thrilled to finally get it out there and share it with all of you. I’ve created a page of my website that is fully dedicated to the “CREATURES” class. this page features what’s included in the class, the price, where to buy, and even some FAQ’s. head on over here to get all of the details.


I want to thank all of you for being so patient as I’ve been putting this course together. I have worked really hard to create a class that is exciting, creative, fun, and appropriate for all levels. “Creatures” embraces not only my teaching style, but who I am as an artist – so, I really do feel like I’m sharing a bit of me with all of you…

join me on this kick-ass creative adventure…and I hope to be seeing you in class!


21 Secrets Art Journaling Workshop!


I am SO SO SO excited to finally make this major announcement!

this spring 2015, I will be teaching a class as part of the 21 Secrets Art Journaling Workshop! 21 Secrets (founded by Dirty Footprints Studio), is a workshop constructed by 21 different artists and is accessed entirely online. here’s a little bit about the course I’ll be teaching:

Fragments & Mysteries

Throw your plan out the window, and lose the ‘big picture’ you’ve been consistently mapping and overworking in your journal pages. Fragments and Mysteries is about embracing the idea of art making with zero constraints. As an artist, I believe that in stepping away from pre-existing plans, true and personal meanings will emerge. Deep within layered materials, found objects and imagery, your subconscious will reveal its own theme. In this workshop, I will guide you step by step. These small steps, small phases, and fragments will ultimately piece together a meaning lying within you. A meaning which until this point, had only been a mystery…

the exciting part of this workshop, is that you have the ability to experience 21 different classes and teachers all in one place, and all focusing on art journaling. it’s also entirely online, so you have instant access to videos and downloadable material! I will be teaching alongside a great group of artists (and you can find the full list of artists here).

if you’re interested in signing up, click here! by clicking specifically on my link, I will receive credit for the sales generated through it. pre-sale kicks off today, so snag your spot now (and the earlier you sign up, the better the rate!).

hope to see some of you in class! xo

art journal kickstarter


I know, I’ve been completely off the blog radar. I miss this space very much, and hope to really put some time in once I wrap up my semester…

needless to say, my credential work has pretty much consumed my life. on top of my coursework (and working weekends at pnla), I’ve been doing my best to take on opportunities and gigs as an artist. the last few months have been very exciting, and I feel like I’m really pursuing two careers at the same time. ultimately, I’m juggling two paths: becoming an art teacher, and being a working artist.

I’m excited to say that I’ve got a string of really fabulous upcoming publications, the first of which is the art journal kickstarter book! this will be my first book publication as a contributing artist. I’ll admit I haven’t physically seen the book quite yet (as it’s still in pre-order mode), but I’m excited to get my paws on it…

pre-order your copy here!

***I have another VERY VERY exciting announcement coming THIS MONDAY…so keep an eye out. it’s a good one folks. xo***
