Gooood morning!!!!!!! [May. 30th, 2005|10:24 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I have been zombie-d out the past couple of days, working hard on my website, and it's finally finished! Yay!

I added a bunch of new prints (all available on the website also as canvas prints!!), and even better I finally created the "fans" section! So far the fans section consists of two pages - one features photos that fans have sent in - mostly photos of them with my artwork, holding their paintings, showing off their walls of Jasmine art, etc. The other page is all photos of tattoos based on my artwork!

Due to various computer issues, I unfortunately have lost a bunch of the pictures that everybody has sent in to me over the years, so if you don't see your picture that you sent in, please just re-send it and I will add it on!! I lost a whole folder of tattoo photos, so mostly I just have the most recent ones I've been sent, so if you have one and I didn't post it, just email me again =) Or if you happen to have any new photos you'd like to share, just email them to me at JasmineToad@aol.com when you have a chance =) The only stipulation for photos is that they must be (reasonably) family-friendly and have to have my artwork involved somehow, lol.

Of course, my website is here:

http://www.strangeling.com



Just click on the "Fans" tab on the left to see the new photos, and click on "Gallery" to see the new art in the various galleries!

I'm so glad it's all updated - I have been so zonked out in computer-land! I miss painting! I'll probably start a new painting or work on some new minis today - if I do you can peek in on me HERE!

Speaking of minis - I peeked in on the jasmineb_g community and saw that 67_chevelle has made a "How to win a Jasmine Mini" tutorial - seriously! So for those of you who ever pondered how some bidders get to the auctions so quickly, she made an illustrated step-by-step tutorial in this post: http://www.livejournal.com/community/jasmineb_g/1119.html

How cool is that? Lol! I must say that I am flattered! >^__^<

I am so excited! Tomorrow Amber, Chris, Kachina & Theodore will all be here!!! And Chris & Amber are here to stay!!!

All right, off to paint!

Wow, you've been working hard.

That is cool about the tutorial--No wonder folks knew about the auctions before you announced! They were using the webcam! Tricky, tricky!

Lol - right after I posted that I got a couple of emails from Mac users (my webcam won't work with Macs for some reason) who were grumpy because not being able to see my webcam was giving them a disadvantage, hehe.

Your browser probably stores its "cache" in there for a couple of days, depending how it's set up (meaning it is looking at the old version of my website still stored on your computer!). I know AOL does that. Re-freshing the page might help, or using the "clear cache" option (or even just restarting your computer!).

please add to list

Hi Jasmine, Please add green butterfly fantasy and snowspell to my list. Also I wanted to get on tattoo on my ankle but the last guy make a mess of my ankle he used a 18 needle gage. Anyone know about tatoos I called another tatooist and he said 18 was to much this guy was a butcher that did it. Hope you are having fun. Sharon

HOLY shamoly!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, KUDOS to the tattooist who did Allura because they should be rewarded a fucking metal. That is probably one of the best done fairy tattoos I've ever seen. and I've seen A LOT. a lot a lot. I wish I could go to their shop and get all my work done by them because that's just fantastic talent right there.

Isn't that an amazing tattoo? It's BIG too - you can't tell from the photo really, but they said it was a big back-piece. They did a great job on the colours, the leaves and everything - all the little details!

Wow

The fan pages look great. You've certianly been busy, but it paid off, it looks great. I always like looking at tattoos based of works of art. I just wish I had cropped my pic or Bored Fairy before I sent it. It looks kinda funny next to all those pretty people with that stupid white tank top strap but oh well, its there. I agree that the Allura tatt look freaking awesome.

Re: Wow

I actually like the photo - having a little background stuff in there helps show the scale of size & location on there!

Re: hmmmm....

Eek! Let me fix that!!! (Sometimes I accidentally delete thumbnails when I'm working!). It's on there, just the thumbnail is missing, hehe (I'll fix it right now!) You can go directly to its page here in the meantime for froggy love! :
