mini zines from artist Roxanne Coble (aka BY BUN)

I’m thrilled to say that I’ve added yet another issue to my ongoing series of mini zines! and this one, is titled “pools”…

this third issue is about the summer after high school, when my best friend and I used to sneak into swimming pools. this particular memory is very personal, and something I’ve always wanted to incorporate into some sort of creative project. no joke, I’ve dabbled with illustrating and drawing this idea for years. I’m so happy to have captured it in a zine – a format I’ve become quite in love with over the past few months…

much like my other mini zines, you can take a video tour of this one over on my youtube channel! “pools”, along with a restock of “two weeks in may” and “things I’ve buried“, is available now in my etsy shop!

***UPDATE: all mini zines are now SOLD OUT! thank-you so so much to those who grabbed one! if you missed out, I’ll be doing a restock in September…so stay tuned 🙂 ***

August ArtSnacks 'Box Breakdown' video created by artist Roxanne Coble (aka BY BUN!)

it’s a new month, which means a new artsnacks box and another box breakdown! the ‘box breakdown’ is a monthly video I put together for the folks over at artsnacks. it’s an in-depth look at the supplies & techniques found in the latest monthly box.

I’m particularly fond of this month’s box breakdown video – I think because I jam packed so much stuff into it! you can hop on over to the artsnacks youtube channel to watch it…

happy friday, and I hope you all have a creative weekend!

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

'Spirit Pack' giveaway hosted by artist Roxanne Coble (aka BY BUN) for her new online class!!

I just wanted to pop by here to remind you that my new online class SPIRITS arrives tomorrow morning in my Etsy shop at 8:00am pst! as I mentioned in the announcement post, I’ve got that ‘spirit pack’ giveaway for the first 20 students who enroll in the class…

The first 20 students to enroll in the Spirits class will receive a free ‘Spirit pack’ via snail mail. This includes a hand painted trading card from the artist (featuring a ‘spirit’), a die-cut sticker, fun packing tape bits designed by Roxanne, and a mini art print! (while supplies last, limited to the first 20 students only)

with the launch of SPIRITS, there will also be more online class bundle options available.  these new bundle combos will also reflect that lower early bird rate for Spirits! basically, buy a bundle this week during the launch of Spirits to save more moolah and snag another one of my classes (like Creatures or Lyrical, or both!).

I’m so absolutely thrilled about this new class, and cannot wait to share it with you all. hopefully I’ll be ‘seeing you’ in class tomorrow!
