NEWS FOR 12/5/2016
Old Updates

Time has certainly flown in 2016. Currently I am gearing up to move into 201, lining up the conventions, and working on the State of Disunion 2016 Compilation as well as a few other projects that hopefully will come together.

Right now, the major item going on is my Art Advent. Check my Tumblr Art blog or my newly active Instagram Account" to follow my Art Advent. I will post a sketch a day (though sometimes a little late) for each day up until Christmas. It's a fun Holiday tradition of mine that I am happy to bring back after the necessary year off last year as I moved.

Other than that, please keep an eye for all the new items coming from Galactic Dust Bunnies in 2017! -Katie New Art

Old Updates

Oh Man, so if you were here recently, you may have noticed there hasn't been an update since December! That isn't actually true, I had two updates since then I just . . . forgot to change my intro page. Baby Brain is all I can say to explain that oversight!

So what has changed over the last few months?
- I had to close my Etsy shop for a while. Unfortunately, between my baby, my office job, and just life I couldn't keep up with orders. I do have a zazzle shop and I am looking into opening a few more current shops with products made by a 3rd party. I am also looking at re-opening the Etsy shop as a commission exclusive store later this year.

- State of Disunion, my webcomic, has been going strong for over a year now. I have begun meeting fans at shows and I just can't even put into words how amazing that is. Thank you all for you support!

-And of course NEW ART! Check the galleries for the best of the new stuff, and check out my tumblr art blog for all the crazy sketches and fanart that I do . . . . in the rare moments of free time!

I have two upcoming shows, the North Texas Comic Show and the Dallas Comic Show (I know they sound the same but the aren't LOL) after that, I'll hopefully book a few more! -Katie

NEWS FOR 10/3/2015

It's been quite a while, hasn't it! It finally happened!
Meet Thomas Henry David.

He came into the world on July 14th 2015, and it has been a wild three months since then. Obviously website updates fell by the way side, but my maternity leave is up and I am getting back to work!I successful navigated my first Animefest with him, and those coming to see me in Dallas and Tyler this October can look forward to meeting the little guy. Hopefully he will be in a somewhat decent mood.

Speaking of Animefest, it was a fantastic experience to push out past Sci-Fi and Comic Cons and do an anime cons. I was a huge anime fan in the 90's and went to Animefest and A-kon every year, so it was fun and nostalgic to go back to my fandom roots. Also, man has it upped my came. The artists and craters there are phenomenal and I am hoping to use what I learned their to improve my product offerings in upcoming conventions.

The other big news continues to be my ongoing webcomic State of Disunion. I'll have a small umber of Ash-con comics ready for Dallas Comic Con and Tyler City Con, so please check them out and let me know what you think of my first jump into actual comics!

I look forward to seeing y'all this October! Please come by the Galactic Dust Bunnies booth and say hello!

A Few Convention Sketches from Animefest:






NEWS FOR 6/30/2015

I am now two days shy of being 39 weeks pregnant, so I am excited, scared, and everything in between. I expect a lot of art will be going on hiatus for at least most of July and August as I adjust to the new life in my life. I do't plan to quit in fact, I am confirmed for three upcoming conventions in late August and September. The art won't be stopping, but it will need to slow for a while!

Speaking of Slow, back on the 3rd, I promised pcitures of the convention art I did at the Dallas Comic Con, and while they ended up on my tumblr fairly, fast, I'm just now getting them up here. I've also added two new pieces to the "Illustration Gallery" as well as nine new bookmarks in the "Bookmarks" gallery, which are also for sale, if you check out my store.

Thanks everyone again for your support and I'll Update again in a month if I am able!

Convention Sketches:






NEWS FOR 6/3/2015

Art update coming soon! For right now, I wanted to give a BIG thank you to everyone who stopped by my table during Dallas Fan Expo this last weekend! It was a fun show, and I look forward to seeing y'all at the upcoming October show! You can check out my blog post here and I've got some commissions photos here and a few cosplay photos here. Next time, I need to get more cosplay photos because they are amazing.

Agian, thank you everyone and I can't wait for the next show!
Check back in after this weekend and I will have more art and some updated convention information listed.

Convention Sketches: Coming Soon





NEWS FOR 4/3/2015

Sorry for the late update. I was in a hotel with no wi-fi connection when the update should have happened. Speaking of which, shout out to everyone that stopped by my table at both Staples and the Heart of Texas convention in Waco! I had a blast, they were wonderful new venues for me. I hope to be back next to both year!

As far as updates go, I don't have much. The web Comic and the three conventions kept me pretty busy, so there hasn't been much new art. However, I did create a widget zine, which I hope to have for sale on my website soon. You can see some of the inside art at this link here. Currently, you can buy this tiny zine for $1.00 at my convention tables.
I did however, create more copies of my DayDreams Fantasy Coloring book to sell through this site. They are only $5.00 plus shipping. Also, the Galactic Dust Bunnies 2009 sketchbook is nearly sold out (less than 10 copies left), so if you have any interest in one, I would be it now!

I hope to have more update at the end of this month. I'm pushing to get some more art up, and I'll be gearing up for the big my convention, my last for a while, as the bigger gear up is for the birth of my baby sometime around July 9th!

NEWS FOR 2/28/2015

First, thank you so much to everyone who stopped by my table at the North Texas Comic Book Show to give their condolences and share their memories of Chrissy Taylor. It was amazing to see how many people she had touched and to hear your memories. Thank you all so much.

Onto the news. The big announcement would be:
MY FIRST WEBCOMIC HAS LAUNCHED!
I am very proud of this comic. It's been going strong for a month now, and I hope to keep it going (yes even once the baby comes!)Please do take a look, and let me know what you think!

Aside from that, I'm gearing up for two convention in March. Sadly I had to drop out of the April North Texas Comic Book Show due to a prior commitment, but I will be at The Dallas Fan Expo in may. After that, I will be taking a break to you know, give birth in early July. All 2015 conventions after that will be on wait and see basis at that point.

NEWS FOR 1/10/2015

In a little less than a month, Galactic Dust Bunnies will be launching its first webcomic State of Disunion, a political and historical series of one shot jokes.

In bigger news though, there has been a gain and a loss for Galactic Dust Bunnies.
In November, I learned I was pregnant, much to the excitement of myself, my husband, and my best friend (and always faithful convention assistant)Chrissy Taylor.

Sadly though, in December, Chrissy passed away unexpectedly. She and I had been inseparable since our sophomore year in high school, and it was her encouragement and support that convinced me to start selling at cons in 2009.


She is deeply missed (for those who haven't seen us, she is in black)

Because of these two events, I haven't gotten any new art (aside from sketches) finished at this moment. However, I did collect all the art that I did in 2014. You can see all that art on this page.

Also, because of the pregnancy, I need some cash inflow, so I have put some older original art pieces up for sale at half priced. You can see all 27 pieces on this page.

Thank so much for looking :)

New Art
I did; however, make an effort to keep with my holiday tradition of doing a sketch a day until Christmas. You can see that collection below.






NEWS FOR 10/5/2014

Well it's been a bit since an update!

My apologies! It was a very busy August and September because I had two large projects I was working on.
I haven't said much one particular project, but I have been co-writing a fantasy novel for over a year and submissions have gone out to Tor. Keep you fingers crossed!

Also, in late august through September, I began working on a webcomic that I had shelved and then finally decided I really wanted to move forward with it! You can see previews and information on that project here
on my tumblr under the tag "DisUnion"


Right now, I am confirmed for several upcoming shows this fall, though all still in Texas (I'm working to get out of state again!). The first up will be Dallas Fan Days! Below you can see three of the new prints I will debut at that convention!

New Art
No Time to post new art this update (convention prep time is eating all my time!) but in the meantime, art that hit my tumblr!

+ lots more! And as always, you can see the widgets on blogspot

NEWS FOR 6/22/2014

I spent all of today updating this site. I think I need a new back and hands! LOL
When I went to add the new art, I realized I hadn't updated The Store pages in a while. So I spent most of the time there. I know have 17 new prints for sale, my sticker and bookmark listings are now current, and I re-did my commission page with actual examples, and finally got the new art up!

Huzzah! And now I am going to maybe maybe get some art done tonight. Because what better time to start art than 11:00.

And again, I have been selling original art and prints on Etsy. So if you prefer to use that, I am there!

Oops 0.o I forgot to archive this one!

NEWS FOR 8/24/2013
I am working on a few small fixer-upper jobs around this site. I don't like the borders around the art, so over time you'll see those disappear. More importantly though, I'm moving removing some of my older art (or art I'm just displeased with). Some of the galleries were a bit over crowded and on this site I went to put my best foot forward (If you want to see every crazy -sometimes awful- sketch I do, join my my tumblr).

Convention season is going into full swing and I'm busying working on new prints, stickers, and bookmarks.

Below are the 17 newest bookmarks inked and awaiting coloring and a portion of the sketch for a new print!

NEWS FOR 5/27/2012: The AFTERMATH!
Did everyone have a grand time at both Free Comic Book Day and The Dallas Comic Conventions? I sure did!

I spent Free Comic Day at Boomerang Comics, my local and awesome comic shop. There is was doing free watercolor sketches of kids as their favorite super hero. I always have a blast doing that and look forward to it next year!

The Dallas Comic Con was just a grand time!! But also a busy busy time. I could hardly get up from my table, but that's not a bad thing given I go there to draw. I can't thank all my loyal supporters and the new people who gave me a shot. Y'all are the reason I do these. If you are interested on my thoughts you can see my write up on my blogger here. It's also duplicated on my art blog on tumblr.

Announcements
You may have noticed that there has been a change in the Galleries. I got rid of the "Sketch" gallery. All my sketches will not be posted on my tumblr or on my blogger. In it's place, you will now find a section called "Comics" where I will be putting up all the one page or so comics that I create. I my eventually put them up in a little better way,, but for now this is what I've got.
