"Luna" - new fairy painting..... [Feb. 3rd, 2007|07:24 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hey everybody!

Things are finally getting back to normal, getting caught up from the slew of houseguests we've had since Christmas. The house seems kinda empty now =/ I miss everybody, we had a lot of fun with Kachina & the kids staying here.

I've gotten a chance to paint though - a lighthearted piece inspired by a fan who asked me "How come you don't have any faeries sitting on moons?". A very iconic image, I know it's been done before, but hey - not by me ;)

So we have Luna - click below to see her:

"Luna" ORIGINAL PAINTING



Isn't she pretty?

Matt & I went and saw El Laberinto del Fauno (ie, "Pan's Labyrinth) the other day. What a great movie, I loved it so much. I will definitely buy the DVD when it comes out, it is already one of my favourite movies. I had heard a lot of hype and good things about it before I saw it, rarely does a film meet such high expectations, yay! It's rated R, and has some very violent, nervous, and scary parts to it, so if that type of thing bothers you you might not like that part, but it's a wonderful movie all the same. We Netflixed "The Devil's Backbone" - another Guillermo del Toro movie - we'll probably watch that tonight after I finish painting.

I've gotten my first shipment of my new line of open edition statues (These ones HERE) in the mail. I will be "debuting" them at Mega-Con first - http://www.megaconvention.com - February 16th-18th - so those of you who come to Mega-Con to see me (corner booth 713 in the Exhibitors Room!) will get first dibs! After that, I'll be adding them on my website, etc.

I'd better go play some more catch-up on work, hope everybody enjoys the new painting!

Awesome!! Hope to see you there!! Be sure to introduce yourself, lol - I am terrible at matching names with faces.

I'll be in booth 713 - a corner one near the center of the main room =) =)

Oh man... I'll be MegaCon, but broke this year. Those are beautiful!!! BTW, please stop by our anime events on the second floor (rooms 311) to say hey after the dealer room closes. We will be finishing up the costume contest and setting up for the dance on Saturday. I'll see you for sure when I bring you your girl scout cookies. ;)

I forgot to ask - are you planning on doing the Faerieworlds show this year? Randy and I are planning on going and spending vast amounts of money (assuming I've saved up vast amounts by then! Ha!)

I will be at the Faerieworlds' new "FaerieCon" in Philadelphia this Fall (October), but I don't think I'll be able to make it to the actual Faerieworlds festival up by you guys this year, it's the same week as my family's "Cousin Camp" reunion up in Illinois, I so I'll probably be there instead =/

GOTTA love Jasmine

I just discovered your art by searching for tattoos on Yahoo.I can't believe I have never seen your art before now!I want EVERYBODY to see your work. And I will show My people.You are truly a marvel! The imagination and skill and diversity...it is an inspiration, Jasmine.
BTW-The statues are ADORABLE! I would like to start a collection of them.
And the LUNA painting is great. I have a suggestion for you - How about an 'Elements' painting? With Earth, Wind and Fire fairy's ? I know you could make that AWESOME!

Thank you Mere!

Lol, yeah - I think I kind of resigned myself to that fate when I first started painting faeries, period.

I love your Luna painting, and I love how you covered her in stars. Aren't those wings from a Luna moth? I could be wrong, but that's what they remind me of.
I've seen Pan's Labyrinth. Wow. We don't want to spoil it for others, but the ending made me cry. It was so beautiful and tragic at the same time. Definately one of my fav movies, too!
I won't be able to go to MegaCon, no money. Bummer, I was really hoping to meet you and Matt. Maybe next year.
