TWO New Original Paintings, Shojo Beat, & Alice Triptych Prints.... [Mar. 20th, 2008|07:19 pm]

Hi everyone!

I have TWO brand new original paintings to show you - very special as they are commissioned portraits of Shojo Beat Magazine's "Beat Girl" character, and they will be published in an upcoming issue of Shojo Beat! I also have sale prints of my "Alice and Friends" Triptych (I sold the original triptych painting when I was at MegaCon, but I now have prints available).

Also - if the links do not appear to be clickable, simply copy & paste the full link text into the URL field of your browser!

First are the new original paintings. There are two - both are paintings that the manga magazine Shojo Beat hired me to paint. My contract with Shojo Beat / Viz Media does NOT allow me to sell any kind of prints or reproductions of these, but however I am able to sell the actual original paintings! So I apologize in advance - these paintings will never be on my website nor offered as prints - so if you want one, you'll have to get the originals! They will BOTH be appearing in an upcoming issue of Shojo Beat magazine though, so lots of people will get to see them that way. These should be of special interest to collectors due to their rarity and also due to their upcoming fame as magazine illustrations, hehe! Both feature Shojo Beat's logo/character - the Beat Girl™ . The Shojo Beat Girl™ is a beautiful young redhaired girl, always full of life and having fun! The two illustrations Viz Media hired me for are in the DIY/ Do-It-Yourself theme, so my paintings of the Beat Girl™ feature her in the middle of various projects (modifying video game machines, construction, glue guns, knitting needles, you name it!). One is a more grown-up version of the Beat Girl™ (I'm calling her "DIY Shojo Beat Girl™") and the other is a "Chibi" version (Japanese meaning a "cute, little, childlike" avatar) of her that I am calling "CHIBI Shojo Beat Girl™). Beat Girl™ and Shojo Beat™ are trademarks of Viz Media and all rights remain with them. Both are 16"x20" original acrylic paintings on sheets of canvas - and both are up for sale on eBay - seven day auctions starting at ONE PENNY with no reserve - ending on the evening of Thursday, March 27th at 6:00 PM and 6:15 PM CENTRAL TIME and you can see them below:

Next up - my "Alice and Friends" painting! I did indeed sell the original painting back at MegaCon, I am sorry! So she already has a good home. However I have now made prints of her, and they are gorgeous! The original painting had been a big 24" wooden triptych style painting and had a fabulous frame made by my husband Matt. The prints look just like the original painting - I was careful to include the scanned image of the magnificent in the printed image of the print itself and set it against a white background. Unsusually sized & shaped originally, the prints are a little different than my usual sizes, but will still work with standard frames & mats as well as custom frames & mats. I promise to offer more framed and ready-to-hang paintings in the future (I have two new triptychs in the works right now!)!
