'friday finds' blog post from artist Roxanne Coble (aka BY BUN)

it’s been a real rollercoaster of a week I tell ya. from taking care of one of our pugs, juggling freelance gigs (hence the lack of vlogging this week), and then having a bad case of creative frustration…I’m pretty much ready for the weekend.

I’m finally out of my art rut though, an spent most of yesterday playing around in my sketchbook and art journal. whew! so today I’m making up for lost productive time and am packing up etsy orders, and back to working on projects. in the meantime though, here’s some random and fun internet finds from the week…

yeah it’s may, and I’m already bookmarking halloween stuff.

if you listen to our podcast you know I’m addicted to viceland, but this party legends show is hilarious and the different animation/artwork styles are so rad.

omg, I totally need this haunted mansion mug!

I’m not a big hummus person, but damn this looks good!

so I decided to try warby parker this week (as I want some new glasses), and my first 5 frames on their way. I’m so curious to see how this goes!

I totally want a set of these pencils.

have a lovely weekend everyone!

for the first time ever, I am selling some original journal spreads and ‘in-progress’ spreads from a few of my altered book journals!

as you may have seen on instagram, a few weeks ago while cleaning my studio I found a stash of altered books that weren’t fully finished, or that were falling apart. rather than hoarding this artwork for myself, I’ve decided to pass it on and list it in my etsy shop.

you can hop on over here to check out everything I’ve listed! there are 8 completed spreads (one of which is still in a book), and 4 ‘in-progress’ spreads…

***UPDATE: everything is now SOLD OUT! thank-you so so so much for those of you with quick fingers and who may have been watching my Etsy shop. all listings were gone within 10 minutes from the time I posted…THANK-YOU!! <3***

looking back in my blog archives – I realized that I don’t put up blog posts like this very frequently. if my research serves me correct, my last ‘in progress’ post was in 2015! needless to say, I’ll work on sharing photos like this more often…

this is a small sampling of art journal spreads that are deemed ‘in progress’. each of these spreads are at various percentages of completion, but in my mind they are not done. from here, they will either be finished, forgotten and returned to later on, or abandoned in their entirety. only time will tell…

'friday finds' - a roundup of cool stuff curated by artist Roxanne Coble

is it just me or did this week fly by? I swear it was monday and then BAM…friday is here. I’m definitely working on recalibrating my workday a bit. the new online class was pretty much my whole life for a solid month – so now it’s about trying to settle back into my normal routine and kick off some new projects…

it’s been a bit since my last ‘friday finds’ post, so I figured it was time to share some random stuff I’ve liked around the internet!

loving the artwork and instagram of eva magill oliver

soooo tempted to buy this tapestry designed by nikkistrange

nothing will make you smile more than a toad wearing a handmade hat.

currently reading: dark matter by blake crouch

cinco de…pineapple margaritas!!

I totally want to make one of these (and how cute is mr. kate?!)

I hope you all have a wonderful and creative weekend! – xo

daily vlogs posted by artist Roxanne Coble (aka BY BUN) - follow her creative life!

the daily vlogs are back on my youtube channel! if you’re already subscribed, then you might know that I took a little break while working on the Spirits class. but now that it’s done and out there – I’ve returned back to daily vlogging…

in a weird way I missed it. mostly because I love the little crazy creative community we’ve got going on over there! although it’s very personal for me to share my life on a daily basis, I enjoy reading the comments and being able to connect with some of you in a different way.

hop over to my youtube channel to watch the latest vlog, and don’t forget to subscribe to never miss a video!
