Bun Bun Studio is an online bunny boutique selling bunny themed prints, buttons, charms, and soon more. They are all illustrated by Jenna Bastian (jennbasti) whose goal is to create art with all the bunny breeds.
Bun Bun Studio was launched on National Bunny Day in 2021, and is run from the artist's home in Austin, TX with the help of her husband Jeffrey, and bunny "manager" Lucita.
About the Artist
Jenna Bastian (or jennbasti on the internets) is a freelance comic artist. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Arts & Technology at UT-Dallas with a focus in 3D modeling and storyboarding for games and animation. After graduating, she worked as museum security for four years while working on her comic and smaller art commissions. Now she is a full time freelance artist working on her manga World of Yarn, commissioned webtoon Not As it Seems, and Bun Bun Studio.
Jenna got her first bunny, Chelsie, as a kid back in 2002 which started her love for bunnies. She learned how to draw by sketching her bunnies in the Redwall world (animal stories written by Brian Jacques). From there she started creating her own stories and characters which is now a comic in the works. You can read more about her comic at worldofyarn.com, and view more of her work on her Instagram @jennbasti or portfolio at jennbasti.com
Since moving to Austin, Jenna and her husband Jeffrey also started volunteering at the rabbit shelter, House Rabbit Resource Network, which was also where they met and adopted Lucita.
House Rabbit Resource Network
We've been volunteering at HRRN for almost three years and got to see so many different bunnies. During our time here we learned a lot more about rabbits, and helped feed, water, and clean the ~100 bunnies. Want to help volunteer, adopt, or donate? Visit their website: RabbitResource.org. You can also follow HRRN's Facebook and Instagram.
The House Rabbit Resource Network is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving the lives of domestic rabbits by:
- Educating people about caring for companion rabbits as house pets
- Facilitating rabbit rescues and adoptions
- Promoting rabbit advocacy and welfare
We are also a network of house-rabbit enthusiasts in Austin, Texas who help each other with information, support, outreach and camaraderie. “Your friends may tire of your endless rabbit tales, but we won’t!”
