Hi everybody! Art news for today!

#1 Tonight is the opening of a group show called "What Big Eyes You Have" here at City Arts in Orlando, Florida! I will be debuting two original paintings at this show - "Delusions of Grandeur" and "Stilleven I: Slak en Schedel". I'll be there this evening for the opening around 7pm if you'd like to stop by & say hi - a lot of great artists are showing work at this event! I won't have prints or merchandise, just these two new paintings and a few canvases. Should be a fun evening with a lot of wonderful people! Being a "Third Thursday" means that many other shows are also opening tonight in the same gallery district, within walking distance, so it's worth an evening =) Information on the gallery can be found HERE and details on the show (assuming Facebook's server is working again!) can be found HERE

#2 The BIG NEWS - a new tabletop card game called "Fairy Mischief" featuring my artwork is now up for pre-order! The gaming company "Fun to 11" has created a magnificent new game called "Fairy Mischief" and has licensed my artwork for the project. It has turned out amazing! Their company uses Kickstarter to fund & set up the pre-order system, so in order to guarantee that you get your copy of the game you need to CLICK HERE to go to their project page. The page is up for the next 26 days and you'll need to pledge a $35 amount to pre-order your game. Just click the big green button at the top that says "Back this Project" and you can checkout through Amazon. $35 gets you the game (add $25 for international shipping if you live outside the US, please). The game will actually ship this autumn (great Christmas gift!). Aimed at girls ages 5-12 , and also fun for grownups to play along, each game set consists of TWO 42 card decks (with my fairies on them of course), set of sixty-two coloured gems in a deluxe pouch, two play mats, rules, all in one nifty box set. Definitely check out all of the photos, and the videos - of me in my studio, of the girls playing, details about the gameplay & the project, etc.

#3 Good news! Pop Gallery at Downtown Disney now has my book in stock! This means you can drop by Downtown Disney West Side at the Walt Disney World Resort and pick up your copy early! Then on April 13th (from 7-10pm) bring it to the gallery for my Book Signing Party (details are HERE ) so you can get it signed by me as well as Amber Logan and Kachina Glenn (my sisters, the other two authors of the book). Not local? You can also order by phone if you would like a copy shipped to you - in fact, if you ask them nicely, they can wait to ship your book until after Amber, Kachina & I sign it for you on the 13th. Just call them at (407)827-8200 and tell them you'd like Jasmine Becket-Griffith's new book (and tell them if you want it shipped as-is right away, or if you'd like them to wait & mail it after we sign it on the 13th!) . They can ship the book worldwide! (407)827-8200. Books will also be available on Amazon and from bookstores within the next month or two, worldwide).

"Fairy Mischief" the new tabletop card game for girls!



For girls ages 5-12

Fun for all ages (grownups too!)

Made by gaming company "Fun to 11" - they use Kickstarter to fund the project and take pre-orders, so to guarantee your Fairy Mischief, you need to Pre-Order HERE by clicking the big green button that says "Back this Project." A $35 pledge gets you the game and includes US shipping! Add an extra $25 for worldwide shipping outside the US. The project page will only be there for the next 26 days so you will need to get your pre-order in that time frame. After clicking the green "Back this Project" button, choose which reward level you want (the $35 level is the one that buys the game) and payment is handled through Amazon. There are a lot of other pledge levels too - for multiple games, personalized cards, party packs, signed prints & more!
Each box comes with two 42-card decks (that is 84 cards in all!), 62 coloured gems in a deluxe pouch, dice, rules, two play mats, etc.

The game developers have posted a couple of videos about the game and about the project (including a short video of myself, ha!) - CLICK HERE to see the videos!

As is the case with new projects just leaving the ground, word-of-mouth is important - so if you know anybody else who loves games, faeries, cards, my artwork, or has little girls who want to get into gaming - definitely "Share" the good news! Or hey - just kick in $5 and you can get your name printed in the "thank you" section of the booklet, hehe. =) If you have questions about the game or the project or how the kickstarter page works, there is a blue "Ask a Question" button at the very bottom of THIS PAGE HERE and you can ask up there!

The new Strangeling books are IN STOCK at Pop Gallery at Downtown Disney!



Yes - Pop Gallery at Downtown Disney now has my book in stock! This means you can drop by Downtown Disney West Side at the Walt Disney World Resort and pick up your copy early! Then on April 13th (from 7-10pm) bring it to the gallery for my Book Signing Party (details are HERE (assuming Facebook's Event server is back up by the time you get this!) ) so you can get it signed by me as well as Amber Logan and Kachina Glenn (my sisters, the other two authors of the book). Not local? You can also order by phone if you would like a copy shipped to you - in fact, if you ask them nicely, they can wait to ship your book until after Amber, Kachina & I sign it for you on the 13th. Just call them at (407)827-8200 and tell them you'd like Jasmine Becket-Griffith's new book (and tell them if you want it shipped as-is right away, or if you'd like them to wait & mail it after we sign it on the 13th!) . They can ship the book worldwide! (407)827-8200. Books will also be available on Amazon and from bookstores within the next month or two, worldwide).

This new book is hardcover (a really nice puffy hard cover with shiny graphics - cool!!), 112 full colour pages filled with some of my best paintings, my own thoughts and insights into each piece, and also short stories & poetry about some of my most beloved characters (many of these characters were created years ago by my sisters Amber & Kachina, so their writings accompany them artwork). Definitely get your book through the gallery if you can, or come to the book signing - that way you can get the rare treat of having the book "triple signed" by each of the three of us (and meet us, chat with us, snap a photo, grab a glass of champagne, enjoy all of the paintings at the gallery, and have fun at Disney World while you are at it!).
