Join Jasmine in Africa - March 2019 - for an Art Safari Adventure! [Aug. 15th, 2017|05:19 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith


A Very Special Update...

Those of you at Patreon saw this coming, but to everybody else - here's the big news!

(EDIT:  some spots have already been taken as of 4:00PM EST, so if you are in any way interested in potentially going - please email matt@touricatours.com asap so they can start planning!!)

Anybody want to come with me to Africa in 2019?  I'm returning, this time to run my own "Art Safari!" ALL the details are here (or just Google Jasmine Becket Art Safari ) and the full itinerary is available as a PDF available here Everybody is welcome, whether you are an artist, want to be an artist, just happen to like art, or just want to go on vacation with me & Matt to Africa for a couple weeks!

Email matt@touricatours.com  if you are in any way interested, they can hold  a spot for you  (that's my friend who runs the tours, not my husband Matty, hehe).

This will be in March 2019 - we have plenty of time to plan and to save $$ =)

There is a limit of 20 students/travelers, so even if you are only *slightly* interested, let matt@touricatours.com  know asap.

I went to Africa last year (South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia) with some musician friends with the same tour group, on a music themed safari.  Matt (from Tourica tours) has invited me to come back and this time hold an Art workshop themed safari.

For a photographic odyssey courtesy of my brother-in-law Paul Andrews - he has posted photographs he took when we went on last year's trip to Africa together with our musician friends. Click HERE to see them (he is a professional photographer so they are glorious photos to entertain you either way!)   Of course instead of Robyn playing concerts, our trip will have me doing artsy stuff, painting, optional workshops, etc. - but we will be visiting much the same itinerary (with the exception of some of the Johannesburg photos at the top of the page, as our trip will be slightly shorter).


Tourica Tours (I can speak from experience both as a customer, friend & client) do a simply amazing job of creating a laidback but luxurious, hassle-free way of traveling around Africa.  I can't wait to go back!

I'll be doing lectures, live painting demonstrations, art workshops, etc. throughout the tour.  My husband Matty of course will be coming too (he has never been to Africa and is super excited).  We'll stay in a variety of different lodgings - luxury Safari "glamping", nice hotels/apartments in Cape Town, fun boat rides down the Zambezi, a few nights right by Victoria Falls (one of the most stunning places I have ever been), & more.  The safari drives are amazing, you will see all the animals you would expect to see & then tons more, all out in the wild!  (Some of you might remember my elephants story...... ;) )

It ain't cheap, but it is truly a trip of a lifetime and worth every single penny & then some.  The accommodations are super nice, food everywhere is great (I'm vegetarian and had all sorts of great veggie options everywhere).  Let me see - it's at $6999 which means if you can set aside $10 - $12/day until the trip, lol, you'd have it covered.... plenty of advance notice!  ;P

ALL the details and FAQ are on the official website here

The full itinerary is available as a PDF available here

Again -email matt@touricatours.com if you have any travel or tour related questions.

Please feel free to ask me (email me at JasmineToad@aol.com , don't respond only to this mailing list update as I may not see it, just email me at JasmineToad@aol.com ) if you have any questions for me about the art side of things, or about the places we'll be visiting (as these are all places I love and have mostly visited before in person!).

I hope some of you are able to join me!  Again, while it is art themed you do NOT have to be an artist, this is for all skill levels and you can choose however much you would like to participate (or not).  The photography opportunities on this vacation are amazing, even just with an iPhone you can get fantastic images.  Or just bring your colouring books and colour along while I'm painting =)  I'll be staying in the same hotels, eating at the same table, sitting in the same van, etc. as you all (and Matty of course) so I'm looking at this as a great way to meet some of you in person, get to be friends and have a magical journey.

Check out Tourica Tours on Facebook or Instagram @touricatours ,or again, my brother-in-law Paul's photos from our last vacation Click HERE) to get a great sense of what we will see & do on this adventure!  We saw everything from wild penguins to lions, from Victoria Falls to the Cape of Good Hope.

Jasmine in Seattle & California, Free Pins, New Artwork, Perpetual Calendar, ACEOs and more! [Jul. 8th, 2017|02:52 pm]

Updates from Jasmine!

Big update today!</p>

Firstly – we still have some of the free 20th Anniversary pins for the Strangeling.com giveaway!  We’ve already given out nearly half of them, so the sooner you can get an order in – the better (they will probably not last for the full month unfortunately, they are going fast!).  We are including a free “Time Flies” pin in each order over $25 placed at Strangeling.com for the month of July (or while supplies last, I made about 200 of the pins).

Next up – we are currently on our West Coast summer tour!  TONIGHT (July 8)  I will be in Seattle for my appearance at the Insectarium group show at Eight and Sand Gallery (part of Georgetown’s Art Atttack art walk) – details are here – I’ll be there from 6-9pm tonight (Saturday) in person, details are here.  I have new original paintings (four full sized, two Tiny Treasures), prints and canvases there and I’m happy to autograph anything from the show or what you bring with you from home.

July 13, 14 & 15th I will be in Anaheim, California for Disney’s D23 Expo, debuting my new “Princess Aurora” painting for Disney!  Details about the specific signing/autograph events & painting debut are here.

The evening of July 15 in Los Angeles, I have a new original painting  “Poissons Volants: Les Poissons Roses” debuting at the Corey Helford Gallery downtown.  It is part of the group show “Defying Gallery” – I am not “officially” doing a live autograph signing, but I will casually be dropping by for the opening that evening for at least a bit (just with friends to check out the show) – if you see me, say hi!  =)

We return July 17 from the west coast, so in the meantime if you place an order for an original painting or for a limited edition hand embellished canvas in the next week or two we will have a short delay (as I have to wait until I’m back in my studio to ship those personally!) – everything else though (prints, pins, books, etc.) will be shipping as always with no delay.

Next – I have a new painting to show you!  The piece I did for the Three Wishes Faery Festival is now available as prints & canvases (the original painting has been SOLD).  You can order those here at Strangeling.com (and remember, if you order more than $25 you’ll get the FREE Time Flies anniversary pin!).

Speaking of original paintings, I have been working on several new ones for upcoming gallery shows and for DragonCon!  Check out my Instagram (ID: Strangeling) or Facebook here to see these works-in-progress.

Another new project I’m happy to announce is my PERPETUAL CALENDAR – an enormous project consisting of a perpetual calendar with 60+ tiles (including special event tiles for birthdays, seasons, etc. with my paintings on them) and 12 handpainted figurines – all on a specially-built calendar shelf.  Perpetual calendars can be used year after year, as you arrange the days of the week, holidays & date yourself with the tiles – super neat.  It is in the pre-order stage so it is currently first available to USA customers at the Bradford Exchange – you can order here.  Live outside the US?  Don’t worry, after the release it will pop up at the international shipping site Burning Desires here later this year after the release for worldwide shipping anywhere on the globe.

And finally – ACEOs!  I have a bunch of new ACEO cards up for auction on eBay, each starting at literally one penny, each one will be popping up a different day this week while I’m out of town click here to see them all…… I will be back home in time to ship these out with no delay.

Firstly - we still have some of the free 20th Anniversary pins for the Strangeling.com giveaway!  We've already given out nearly half of them, so the sooner you can get an order in - the better (they will probably not last for the full month unfortunately, they are going fast!).  We are including a free "Time Flies" pin in each order over $25 placed at Strangeling.com for the month of July (or while supplies last, I made about 200 of the pins).

Next up - we are currently on our West Coast summer tour! TONIGHT I will be in Seattle for my appearance at the Insectarium group show at Eight and Sand Gallery (part of Georgetown's Art Atttack art walk) - details are here - I'll be there from 6-9pm tonight (Saturday) in person, details are here.  I have new original paintings (four full sized, two Tiny Treasures), prints and canvases there and I'm happy to autograph anything from the show or what you bring with you from home.

July 13, 14 & 15th I will be in Anaheim, California for Disney's D23 Expo, debuting my new "Princess Aurora" painting for Disney!  Details about the specific signing/autograph events & painting debut are here.

The evening of July 15 in Los Angeles, I have a new original painting  "Poissons Volants: Les Poissons Roses" debuting at the Corey Helford Gallery downtown.  It is part of the group show "Defying Gallery" - I am not "officially" doing a live autograph signing, but I will casually be dropping by for the opening that evening for at least a bit (just with friends to check out the show) - if you see me, say hi!  =)

We return July 17 from the west coast, so in the meantime if you place an order for an original painting or for a limited edition hand embellished canvas in the next week or two we will have a short delay (as I have to wait until I'm back in my studio to ship those personally!) - everything else though (prints, pins, books, etc.) will be shipping as always with no delay.

Next - I have a new painting to show you!  The piece I did for the Three Wishes Faery Festival is now available as prints & canvases (the original painting has been SOLD).  You can order those here at Strangeling.com (and remember, if you order more than $25 you'll get the FREE Time Flies anniversary pin!).

Speaking of original paintings, I have been working on several new ones for upcoming gallery shows and for DragonCon!  Check out my Instagram (ID: Strangeling) or Facebook here to see these works-in-progress.

Another new project I'm happy to announce is my PERPETUAL CALENDAR - an enormous project consisting of a perpetual calendar with 60+ tiles (including special event tiles for birthdays, seasons, etc. with my paintings on them) and 12 handpainted figurines - all on a specially-built calendar shelf.  Perpetual calendars can be used year after year, as you arrange the days of the week, holidays & date yourself with the tiles - super neat.  It is in the pre-order stage so it is currently first available to USA customers at the Bradford Exchange - you can order here.  Live outside the US?  Don't worry, after the release it will pop up at the international shipping site Burning Desires here later this year after the release for worldwide shipping anywhere on the globe.

And finally - ACEOs!  I have a bunch of new ACEO cards up for auction on eBay, each starting at literally one penny, each one will be popping up a different day this week while I'm out of town click here to see them all...... I will be back home in time to ship these out with no delay.

"Three Wishes"

Original Acrylic painting 12"x16" $4400 SOLD * Prints available here

Prints now available from $13.99 here - we ship WORLDWIDE.
A special painting I created for the UK event - "Three Wishes Faery Festival" I attended a couple weeks back in Cornwall!  The original painting sold, but we have  many types of prints - 8x10" and 12x16" glossy photo paper prints on sale for $13.99 and $29.99 each - signed by me on the back, and we also have limited edition canvas prints (11"x14", wrapped on boards & ready to hang, hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed & numbered out of only 25 made) for $125.
All are at my website here
and on Amazon here
and on Etsy here
We also have them available in our eBay stores here

Jasmine's Perpetual Calendar

USA Customers can order now here

Another new project I'm happy to announce is my PERPETUAL CALENDAR - an enormous project consisting of a perpetual calendar with 60+ tiles (including special event tiles for birthdays, seasons, etc. with my paintings on them) and 12 handpainted figurines - all on a specially-built calendar shelf.

I'm very happy especially since this project "resurrected" many of the holiday figurine designs that we previously tested but hadn't made it into production yet - such as my Zombie Fairy (she's the October figurine!) and my Fourth of July fairy, etc.  Yay!

Perpetual calendars can be used year after year, as you arrange the days of the week, holidays & date yourself with the tiles - super neat.  It is in the pre-order stage so it is currently first available to USA customers at the Bradford Exchange - you can order here.  Live outside the US?  Don't worry, after the release it will pop up at the international shipping site Burning Desires here later this year after the release for worldwide shipping anywhere on the globe.

Happy 20th Anniversary!



Just a quick little update today, a larger update will come later this week ;)

Yes, it's July 2017 which means that it is the 20th Anniversary of Strangeling.com!
Can you believe it?   Twenty years!

In celebration of this I have created a new collectible enamel pin called "Time Flies" (it sure does!) that we are GIVING AWAY to you guys as an anniversary gift!  Not for sale, exclusive to Strangeling.com = we are including a free "Time Flies" pin in each order over $25 placed at Strangeling.com for the month of July (or while supplies last, I made about 200 of the pins).

All you need to do is place an order for anything up at Strangeling.com between now and the end of July and we will pop one into your package before it ships! Click here to start shopping!

Just a few notes:

*It won't show up really in the shopping cart or anything, it will just manually be added by my sister Amber & my husband Matt when they are packaging up orders for the month of July.  So don't worry that it doesn't show it in the shopping cart, we will automatically be adding them when the order is being processed.

*If you order something that is back-ordered (I think most things are in stock now, but in case) we will set aside your pin for you for when your item comes back in stock.  You won't miss out!

*You can't buy a $25 gift certificate, it has to be physical merchandise.  However, if you already HAVE a gift certificate and use it to buy $25+ worth of stuff, you WILL get a free pin!

*The "Time Flies" pins will not be sold by us, they are only as giveaway gifts from me =)

*Only orders placed through Strangeling.com are included (as it's a Strangeling.comexclusive) - other sites like Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Disney, StrangelingUK, etc. are not included - only Strangeling.com

*We will ship worldwide to any country

*If you are a Patreon $10+ member you can use your PATREON10 discount code to get your usual 10% off as always, but your total before shipping will have to hit the $25+ mark before checkout to receive the free pin.

*Yes, you can buy other pins in order to get the free pin - or prints, or original paintings, canvases, books, colouring books, journals, anything really - any actual order that totals $25+ worth of actual merchandise.

*If you place more than one order on the same day to the same address, you will only get one pin.  If you place multiple orders the same day to different shipping addresses, each recipient will get a pin.  If you place more than one order on different days throughout the month of July, you will get a pin with each order, but we do reserve the right to limit the free pins if the system seems to abused/manipulated ;P

Jasmine at D23 Expo in Anaheim



I will be at Disney's D23 Expo this year in person to debut my new "Princess Aurora" Sleeping Beauty painting & prints! I will be doing three separate signing events:

Thursday July 13th- 11:30am- 2:30pm at the Dream Store
Friday July 14th - 2:30pm- 4:00pm at Talent Central
Saturday July 15th - 11:00am- 12:30pm at Talent Central


The D23 Expo is held at the Anaheim Convention Center right by Disneyland in California. Tickets are available here at Disney's website

more details at D23's official website here

Soon after D23 we will have the Princess Aurora prints & merchandise at the various other Disneyland & Disney World (CA and FL) locations, including my August 19 even at Disney Springs' Marketplace Co-Op in Florida.

If you can't come to D23 - don't worry California folks - I will be returning to Disneyland's WonderGround Gallery at Downtown Disney on October 27-29th for a THREE DAY Take Over event - yay!!

New ACEO Cards!

2.5x3.5" sized ONE of a kind canvas giclees, see them all here

For every original painting I do, I create one single ACEO card.  ACEO = Art Cards, Editions & Originals.  ACEOs are standardized 2.5x3.5" trading card sized pieces of artwork.  With mine, each is a tiny canvas giclee - I then go in with my acrylic paints & brushes painting fine details & embellishments, signing, dating & numbering out of only ONE (they are each numbered #1 of 1 because I only ever make one!).  I even do this with my rare paintings, mini paintings, etc. so often this is literally the only way to purchase that specific piece as a giclee.  Since they are so special and only one of a kind, to be fair to everybody I always auction them off, with bidding starting at a penny, so that everybody all over the world in any time zone has a whole week to peruse them and enter their bids.  I have several up now (and will be listing some more later this week) - click here to see them all!

MONSTER HIGH!

Yes indeed, I've been invited to paint two official Monster High paintings for an upcoming Mattel (C) event at Los Angeles Gallery1988 on June 23rd called "The Joys of Toys".  It is part of a fundraising effort for the Mattel Children's Hospital at UCLA - a very good cause!

I've painted two different characters - "Draculaura" and "Frankie Stein."  Each is an original acrylic painting on an 8x10" panel, and each will be framed in a glossy black ornate frame measuring 10x13" each priced at $2400.

Only a limited number of prints - 30 of each - glossy 8x10s signed on the front and numbered out of 30 by me - priced at $25 each - will be available.  As it is the Mattel company that owns the reproduction rights to the artwork, I cannot make & sell the prints directly myself, they will only be available through the official event/gallery.

The event is held June 23rd with the opening from 7-9pm at Gallery1988 West in Los Angeles:  7308 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046 - and will be open through July 15th.

After opening night, starting June 24th, any remaining original paintings & prints will then be immediately available online at the gallery's website for shipping WORLDWIDE.  The website is gallery1988.com .  Questions should be directed to the gallery (again, I can't sell these myself, they are ONLY for the Mattel event!).

New ACEO Cards!

2.5x3.5" sized ONE of a kind canvas giclees, see them all here

For every original painting I do, I create one single ACEO card.  ACEO = Art Cards, Editions & Originals.  ACEOs are standardized 2.5x3.5" trading card sized pieces of artwork.  With mine, each is a tiny canvas giclee - I then go in with my acrylic paints & brushes painting fine details & embellishments, signing, dating & numbering out of only ONE (they are each numbered #1 of 1 because I only ever make one!).  I even do this with my rare paintings, mini paintings, etc. so often this is literally the only way to purchase that specific piece as a giclee.  Since they are so special and only one of a kind, to be fair to everybody I always auction them off, with bidding starting at a penny, so that everybody all over the world in any time zone has a whole week to peruse them and enter their bids.  I have several up now (and will be listing some more later this week) - click here to see them all!
