life book, book!!


Life Book, book from Tamara Laporte with a contribution from artist Roxanne Coble (aka By Bun!)

as some of you may have seen on my instagram yesterday, I was finally able to share some pretty rad news…I’m a contributing artist in Tamara Laporte’s new Life Book book!!!! and yes, this was the secret project I was working on back in January (as seen on the vlog here and here).

I feel so incredibly honored (and absolutely thrilled!) to be one of the six guest artists in Tam’s book. I remember doing a double take when I first got the email about it, like: what! omg. does she mean me?! and while I can’t say anything about what exactly I’ve contributed quite yet…I’ll just say it’s pretty rad 🙂

the book releases Jan 1, 2018 and you can pre-order it over on amazon. be sure to also read Tam’s lovely post about how this whole beauty came about…
