ARTWORK / FREELANCE / TEACHING
+ Where can I attend one of your workshops or art classes?
I keep the side bar of my website updated with where I’m teaching. So, look to the right to see where available in-person classes are. I also love doing private classes – if you’ve got a small group interested in a workshop, I will come to you. Email me if you want to set up a class: email@example.com.
+ Do you teach online workshops for art journaling?
I sure do! I currently have two online classes available: LYRICAL and CREATURES. I also participate in a number of group classes online, which can be found on the right in the sidebar —>
+ Where do you sell artwork or cool stuff I can buy?
I list everything in my Etsy shop!
+ Where can I buy a print of one of your art journal spreads?
You can get prints of my journal pages on my Society6 page. If you see one on my blog you know you want, shoot me an email and I’ll get it up for ya (firstname.lastname@example.org). I also have printed postcard sets available in my etsy shop.
+ Can I hire you to make me something?
At this current time (due to my online & in-person teaching commitments), I am not taking on any commissions or additional freelance work.
+ But what about designing my wedding invitations or save the dates?
Right now I do not do any sort of invitation designs (sorry guys!). The ones featured on my blog (here and here) were done entirely by hand (like a crazy person) for my own wedding. At this time, I can’t offer that kind of handmade work.
+ Can you design me a tattoo or can I use one of your drawings I saw on social media?
I am currently not taking on any commissions for tattoo designs. Plus, being a tattoo artist is a hell of a lot different than a 2d artist (ie: what I do on paper, may not translate well to a human body). See below (under ‘personal’) if you’re in need of an artist. As for using one of my drawings – you are more than welcome to take it to your tattoo artist…just maybe give me a shout out on social media 😉
+ Where did the blog name ‘by bun’ come from?
Out of high school, I used to sign my artwork with a small bunny outline. Years later I got a tattoo of said bunny signature (even though that is no longer how I sign my artwork). When I met my (now) husband, he always claimed it was his favorite and quickly gave me the nickname ‘bunny’ which turned into ‘bun’. When the time came for me to start my blog over five years ago, he mentioned that everything (the artwork) would be ‘by bun’. I thought it was clever, and the title has stuck ever since…
+ Can I advertise on your blog, give you product to review, or host a giveaway?
I’ll always be open to the possibility pending we’re a good match. Email me: email@example.com
PERSONAL / MISC
+ Who is ‘Puff’?
‘Puff’ is my husband, James, of whom I lovingly call ‘Puffin’.
+ So…you’re a crazy pug lady?
Yup. I’m obsessed with all things pugs, and have two: Mr. Behr and Olive. Our pugs were both rescued from the amazing organization Pug Nation Rescue LA. If you’re looking to adopt a pug, I highly recommend you start there!
+ Who is your tattoo artist?
I currently have two tattoo artists I go to. The first is Laura Wangerin at Outer Limits Tattoo in Long Beach. She has designed, drawn and tattooed the large fox & roses piece on my arm and the Richie Tenenbaum tattoo on my torso. The second artist I go to is Roxi Tatoo at El Clasico Tattoo in Echo Park. She designed and tattooed the lavender piece on my lower arm.
+ I want to mail you something, where can I send it?
You can send me happy mail here: BY BUN, P.O. Box 26715, Los Angeles, CA 90026
