Jasmine's Black Friday through Monday SALE at Strangeling, new artwork, new pins, new news! [Nov. 23rd, 2018|05:41 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith

Updates from Jasmine!

Hello everybody!  I've finally got my mailing list back up & running after some technical difficulties - and WOW I have a lot of exciting things to tell you all about.  Hope you all have had a marvelous Autumn so far.

First things first - it is that time of year again - it's our annual Black Friday Sale - today through the end of Monday - EVERYTHING at Strangeling.com is 25% OFF with coupon code THANKS2018  - no limit.  Everything, even originals, masterpiece editions, pins, books, coloring books, Canvas Cuties, tarot cards, everything.  Best sale ever.  We are always happy to ship worldwide of course too!   Enter THANKS2018 into the discount/coupon code field in your shopping cart during checkout and it will apply to everything ( THANKS2018 has no spaces and is in ALL CAPS).

Pssst - speaking of the sale, if you happen to be a 10+ level Patreon Patron, be sure to login with your patreon email address and you can also use your PATREON10discount code in the discount/coupon field in your shopping cart in addition to the THANKS2018 code and you'll get an additional 10% off, giving you a whopping total of 35% OFF.  Not yet a 10+ Patreon discount tier member?  You can sign up heretoday (you can even cancel tomorrow if you want, lol, I won't hate you) just to get your extra 10% off - it takes less than a minute to sign up, just wait for the email from us confirming your code is setup (we have to enter it manually) and then you can start saving hundreds or even thousands of dollars (depending what you buy) for only the $10 subscription fee (again, you can cancel whenever).

My friend Paul at StrangelingUK.com is also running 25% off with coupon code THANKS2018 so if you live in the UK OR if you live ANYWHERE else but want to order UK Exclusive items, check up there too (note: Patreon discount doesn't work on StrangelingUK.com  as that is owned/run by Paul, not me).

Secondly, since we've last spoke - I have posted literally dozens of brand new artworks now available as prints up on my website here (everything is included in the big sale!) - loads of prints & canvases from my "Magical Thinking" show are now available at Strangeling as well as many other new paintings I've been working on this Autumn.  To jump to all the NEW prints just click here!

Thirdly - later next week I am leaving for Asia.  I will be out of the country for the first half of December.  This means that if you are wanting to purchase something that needs to be hand embellished by me in paint (Limited Editions, Masterpiece Editions, original paintings) - hurry up and order them now if you are wanting anything like that to ship in time for Christmas!  You don't want to be cutting it too close (and I can't help with that, lol, I warned ya!) if it's a gift.  Besides, since we're running the sale now you're better off ordering now so you'll save $$, let alone having to worry about looking at tracking numbers online on Christmas Eve - I promise!

Fourthly - for my Florida folks - I'm already getting ready for my annual December show - December 22nd at Pop Gallery at Disney Springs!  Details are here at the event page.  More details will follow soon - I'll be debuting a new Pop Gallery Exclusive painting / prints / canvas entitled "Luna Moths" as well as a set of Pop Gallery Exclusive Strangeling Pins featuring my Pirate Girls!  We'll also be giving away a free Event Exclusive pin called "Seashell Collector" that will be given away free to the first 200 customers (pin giveaway starts at 4PM at the gallery, I'll be there in person from 6PM-9PM to sign autographs.

My "Forever Strange" art book is out now and is available to order!  It would make a fantastic gift for anybody to whom you'd like to introduce my artwork, or for anybody who is already a fan ;)  This is a glorious sequel to my "Strangeling" art book - hardcover 198 full colour pages, gilded edges, full of my paintings and complemented by poetry & short stories written by my sisters Amber and Kachina and a short story by my husband Matt.   You can order it (and yes, the discount code works on books too) autographed by ALL FOUR OF US worldwide up at my Strangeling website here .  Don't need a signed copy and want to spend a bit less?  BookDepository offers free worldwide delivery here  or you check out the publisher's website here you can also order there internationally (not autographed, but in stock for sure!).

Coloring book folks - my new Alice in Wonderland coloring book is in the works, slated for an early 2019 publication date with my usual publishers.  In the meantime we have TONS of completely new coloring pages all both traditional lineart & GRAYSCALE up at my Patreon!  These are all exclusive to my Patreon, not found in my coloring books, or anywhere else so they are completely different.  Download all of them and print them on any sort of paper/canvas/board you like!  All for the $5 pledge here (if you are already a part of our coloring tier at Patreon you can see all the coloring pages, old & new and lineart & grayscale all here).  Basically whenever we release a lineart at Patreon we release a grayscale so everybody is happy, hehe =)



And finally - for my PIN PEOPLE!  We have many new pins since my last mailing list update.  Check out all my pins HERE (they are included in the sale too, any in stock now or on backorder!) Our November Pin of the Month is "Alice's Advice" and our current Patreon Exclusive Pin is "Strawberry Cupcakes!"  If you happen to join the Patreon Pin Collector tier, you'll start off with the Alice's Advice pin, the Strawberry Cupcakes pin, and the current Strangeling lanyard for only $25 (and you get all the Patreon discounts, previews, freebies, exclusive coloring pages & more Patreon perks) including worldwide shipping.  You'll then follow up next month with "Mistletoe Fairy" and all the subsequent Pins of the Month and all the subsequent Patreon Exclusive pins and new Strangeling Lanyard designs whenever they are released!  Join here! Also too - we have a free Facebook Group you may want to pop in at the Official Strangeling Pins Group here where you can trade pins, buy/sell Strangeling pins, generally chatter about pins & stuff, make plans with fellow pin collectors to meet up & come to the pin events, and so forth - it's an amazing group of people - everybody is welcome - join the free Facebook Group here and have fun!

Whew! - and that's it for now!  Have fun shopping!  The sale ends at the end of Monday when the clock strikes midnight.  I will leave you with some pics of all my new prints we've recently added below (all are included in the sale!)

Jasmine

We will have three Exclusive Strangeling Pins at MegaCon 2018. "Venus" "Earth Angel" and "Orange Blossoms" (a collaboration with myself and fellow Florida artist Carrie Hawks, she is at booth #8FA also on the floorplan above, we both have "Orange Blossoms" pins on Friday). Come EARLY to be there when the show opens if you'd like to get a free pin with your purchase (while supplies last). Any purchase, even a $3 postcard will get you a free pin. We'll also have lots of pins for sale, and if you buy a couple you'll get a free Strangeling Lanyard!



MegaCon Pin Giveaway Schedule:

Giveaways start the second that MegaCon opens its doors!

Bamboo Fans! I have had some bamboo paddle-style fans (great for if it's hot & crowded!) featuring my artwork! We'll have some available as giveaways free with purchases $20 or more (or you can buy one directly for $5).



Reusable Strangeling Shoping Bags!

With purchase (usually $10+ I think) you'll get a free Strangeling Shopping Bag - a brand new design I've had made just for MegaCon!  Environmentally friendly, woven synthetic fabric, sewn/stitched, re-usable bags - these are BIG 24" bags!

The Megaon Exclusives & Giveaway items are NOT for sale and cannot be reserved, please do not ask.

That being said - we are setting aside any leftover pins/bags/etc. from MegaCon and will be sending them randomly to our Patreon Patrons all over the world - everybody with a valid Patreon account at my Patreon page here may be included in the random surprise shipments.



Free 4x6 Mini Prints for Patreon Patrons

Yes, all of my Patreon Patrons attending MegaCon can drop by my booth (booth #1048) at any time throughout the event to choose your very own FREE 4x6" mini print!  We have thousands to choose from =)  Just let us (Amber, Chris, Matt or me - whomever is there manning the booth) know what name your Patreon account is registered under and you can pick out a 4x6" print - absolutely free.  Bring it by during any of my autographing sessions and I'll sign it for ya for free too.  If you are not yet a Patreon Patron but are attending MegaCon - I recommend signing up for Patreon before you go - just click the orange "Become a Patron" button here at my page.  All tiers are included, so basically even if you just join for $1 you can get a free print at the show (and yes, you could then just quit Patreon right after MegaCon, lol, but I recommend sticking around because Patreon is awesome).

New Strangeling Pins!

See all my pins here

We have several brand new pins!  The April Pin of the Month - "Clockwork Dragonling" and the May Pin of the Month - "Skulls and Stars" are now available to the public for sale here!  Each is $12.99 and we are happy to ship worldwide.  What a little cutie!   And many more to come - you can see all the Strangeling Pins so far here .

Alternately too, the best way to stay on top of things is to sign up as a Patreon Pin Collector on my Patreon here.  While it's still May you can immediately get the Skulls & Stars pin  (along with the Patreon-only pin "Pipistrello") right away, the new Strangeling Lanyard, and you'll get each new Pin of the Month as they are released (along with Patreon-only pins like the upcoming "Sea Star" and exclusive bonus pin giveaways, discounts, and more).  If you are into pins, this is really the best way to go.  It's also a good way to win super rare pins like the MegaCon & DragonCon Exclusive pins, etc. too ;)

New Coloring Pages!

Patreon Exclusives - now also grayscale options!
Join Patreon here (already a Patron? Click here)


I've got a ton of new Patreon-Only Coloring Pages available to download including a bonus "Orange Blossoms" (with Carrie Hawks / Tigerpixie ) and "The Moon" coloring pages just released!

In ADDITION to the traditional lineart formats we also now have GRAYSCALE TOO for each of my Patreon Coloring pages.  Only $5 gets you ALL the pages to download as much as you want, past and present, and you can always just join for one month if you want and download them all, lol (I recommend sticking around though, 'cos Patreon is awesome).

If you're already a 5+ Patreon Patron you can see ALL 16 (32 total, including Grayscale) Exclusive Coloring Pages here

If you haven't signed up yet - just click the "Become a Patron" orange button here
you can begin downloading the coloring pages immediately.  There are other subscription tiers like the Patreon Pin Collector membership & tons of other stuff too, check it all out at my Patreon here.

What is grayscale?  Basically it is like a black & white photograph of a painting.  Instead of just the outlines (like a traditional line-art coloring book) a grayscale coloring page shows all the shading & depth of the original painting.  It's great for transparent media like watercolours, acrylics, colored pencils, digital & more.  If you Google "grayscale coloring" you'll find loads of groups & tutorials.  Don't worry, we're adding grayscale format in addition to our usual lineart formats, so it's an extra bonus, not a replacement.  This way everybody is happy =)

Jasmine is now on Twitch!

Next Official Broadcast Friday May 25 at 7PM EST HERE

My next Twitch paintcam broadcast goes live this Friday at 7PM Eastern Time (Midnight UK time)here: https://www.twitch.tv/jasminebecketgriffith/    - please join me!  Twitch is 100% free and everybody is welcome.  My username is: JasmineBecketGriffith   (easy to remember!)

I'll be painting live & chatting all evening.  We've had a ton of episodes so far this month (usually twice a week) - and you can see those previous episodes (usually about 5 hours each) if you'd like to catch up  - watch the archived video here! It's a great way to see what paintings I'm working on for my Magical Thinking show ;)

They have made me an official "Affiliate" now too, so if you click "Subscribe" you can subscribe to the "Twitch Prime" ad-free version and Twitch throws me a couple bucks ;)

  Every little bit helps us stay on the air!  Also they have special emojis/emoticons for Twitch Prime I've made of my characters that subscribers can use, etc. too.  If you are an Amazon Prime member you can subscribe for free (Twitch is owned by Amazon and Amazon gives you one free Twitch sub!).   So if you'd like to help out and get a free subscription, login at my Twitch channel here using the same email address you use for Amazon Prime, and click the "Subscribe" button on my page and you'll see the "Subscribe for free" button and voila! =)  Alternately if you aren't an Amazon Prime member you can also subscribe to Prime for $4.99 - either way works fine, and again - the basic service is always free =)

Matt moderates our chat room, and you can ask any questions you'd like - I'm treating it as a combination painting tutorial & socializing time, so we focus on art but end up talking about just about everything.  When you are watching a live broadcast you can type in your questions, Matt reads them to me, and I'll answer ya!  Or you can just lurk and watch without talking or asking questions.  We've also started having free giveaways (open to everybody) each broadcast too....

See you on Friday!!!  I'll be starting at 7:00PM Eastern Time (Midnight  UK Time) and will probably paint for a couple of hours.  It'll be right after a long day at MegaCon, lol, so I might be a bit exhausted!  You can also click "follow" on my page and it will send you an alert for free when I go live if you aren't able to officially subscribe ;)

"Forever Strange" book

Pre-order on Amazon here (US) and Blue Angel here (worldwide preorder will pop up soon)

My "Forever Strange" art book is being published later this year and is available to pre-order.  This is a glorious sequel to my "Strangeling" art book - hardcover 198 full colour pages, gilded edges, full of my paintings and complemented by poetry & short stories written by my sisters Amber and Kachina and a short story by my husband Matt.   USA Customers can order cheaply from Amazon here .

As it's published originally in Australia, they tend to get their stock in earlier there (supposedly June/July) and the US/EU/UK rest of the planet will get it later this summer or early autumn.  Again, you can pre-order now in the US at Amazon here and the books and later on the books will be at bookstores worldwide, Book Depository, Books a Million, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, all the usual suspects, ANYWHERE in the world.

Firstly - I'm on TWITCH here!  We had a special "test episode" a few days ago for patrons, and my official first public broadcast will be this Sunday, April 8 at 5PM Eastern Time.  It's free!  Many more details follow in this update below.  Basically you can watch me paint live from any computer or phone/device and chat with me & Matt while I work.  You can see the "test" episode here to get a good feel for it.  Effectively it is like "The Joy of Painting" but instead of Bob Ross you get me, lol.

I have new paintings to show you!  All of the originals have been (gasp!) SOLD, but prints & other good stuff are available for all of them.  "A Dragonling Valentine," "Alice's Prize," and "Ursula" (available through Disney, details here and more info below in this update).

My "Alice:  The Wonderland Oracle" deck is coming out soon and is available for pre-order!  Worldwide you can order from Blue Angel Publishing here (they'll get it in May).  USA Customers can order cheaply from Amazon here (they say September).  BookDepository won't get it until autumn but they offer free worldwide shipping here.  We'll eventually have autographed copies later this year at Strangeling.com .  Even better - we are having  an autograph/release party on June 30 at Pop Gallery at Disney Springs here in Florida and will have the decks in stock for me to autograph there too!  Details about the event are here.

We have TONS of new coloring pages including GRAYSCALE coloring pages up at my Patreon!  These are all exclusive to my Patreon, not found in my coloring boosk, so they are completely different.  And yes - we have 13 grayscale designs (for those who prefer grayscale coloring pages already shaded) as well as 13 traditional lineart designs.  All for the $5 pledge here (if you are already a part of our coloring tier at Patreon you can see all the coloring pages, old & new and lineart & grayscale all here).  Basically whenever we release a lineart we'll release a grayscale so everybody is happy, hehe =)

The good folks at Spooky Kook have just released two new lines of my merchandise - BOOTS (they look a lot like Doc Martens, that type of style, and are cruelty-free) with my artwork here (not all these are my designs as this link is just for the boots in general, but they have several) and also wooden bookmarks here- they are located in the UK but ship worldwide.

We have loads of collectible enamel pin news!  The new glow-in-the-dark Patreon Exclusive "Releasing Fireflies" can be seen here! If you can sign up for the Pin Collector Club through my Patreon here and you  will automatically receive "Clockwork Dragonling" (almost finished!) along with the Patreon-only pin "Releasing Fireflies" and you'll get each new Pin of the Month as they are released (along with Patreon-only pins and exclusive bonus pin giveaways, discounts, and more).  We are releasing a new Strangeling Lanyard too and you will receive the lanyard (and any new lanyard designs we come out with automatically!  We have also made our official MegaCon Event Page here with details about "Earth Angel," "Orange Blossoms," and "Venus" (the three MegaCon Exclusive Giveaway Pins).  Scroll down for more info.

Whew! - and that's it!  Now scroll down to see it all!

Jasmine is now on Twitch!

First Official Broadcast Sunday April 8 at 5PM EST HERE

My first "official" Twitch paintcam broadcast goes live this Sunday at 5PM Eastern Time here: https://www.twitch.tv/jasminebecketgriffith/    - please join me!  Twitch is free and everybody is welcome.  My username is: JasmineBecketGriffith   (easy to remember!)

I'll be painting live & chatting all evening.  We had a "soft opening" a couple days ago for my Patreon Patrons - it's now available to the public if you'd like to watch the archived video here!

Again, my first "official" broadcast is this Sunday at 5pm EST - bookmark it or "follow" me up there and check in at 5pm Eastern time this Sunday!  Not sure if I'll be working on Monarch again or if I will have finished her by then and starting something new.....  we shall see ;)

Twitch is free, you can watch it either on your computer here -  or on any phone/tablet/device etc. with an App too (free App in the App Store).  You don't have to sign up for anything to just go to the website & watch.  If you would like to join in on the chat room you can make an ID up there (it is still free), or you can just lurk and watch without talking or asking questions ;P

See you on Sunday!!!  Our official "grand opening" broadcast will be a bit snazzier with some light chamber music playing and Matt will have his own mic set up, etc. - the first night was mostly for us to figure out how the broadcasting worked and to have fun chatting with my Patrons =)

Tons of New Coloring Pages!

Patreon Exclusives - now also grayscale options!
Join Patreon here (already a Patron? Click here)


I've got a ton of new Patreon-Only Coloring Pages available to download!
New images includ: Mechanical Angel I, Heart of Nails, Kirin & Bakeneko, Guinevere Had Green Eyes, Flower Dragonling & more

In ADDITION to the traditional lineart formats we also now have GRAYSCALE TOO for each of my Patreon Coloring pages.  Only $5 gets you ALL the pages to download as much as you want, past and present, and you can always just join for one month if you want and download them all, lol (I recommend sticking around though, 'cos Patreon is awesome).



If you're already a 5+ Patreon Patron you can see ALL 13 (26 total, including Grayscale) Exclusive Coloring Pages here

If you haven't signed up yet - just click the "Become a Patron" orange button here
you can begin downloading the coloring pages immediately.  There are other subscription tiers like the Patreon Pin Collector membership & tons of other stuff too, check it all out at my Patreon here.

What is grayscale?  Basically it is like a black & white photograph of a painting.  Instead of just the outlines (like a traditional line-art coloring book) a grayscale coloring page shows all the shading & depth of the original painting.  It's great for transparent media like watercolours, acrylics, colored pencils, digital & more.  If you Google "grayscale coloring" you'll find loads of groups & tutorials.  Don't worry, we're adding grayscale format in addition to our usual lineart formats, so it's an extra bonus, not a replacement.  This way everybody is happy =)

"Ursula"

Original Acrylic painting 16"x20" $7200 SOLD
 Prints and merchandise available at Disney & worldwide online here!

My Ursula has popped up at Disney's WonderGround Gallery! And there are also many ways for everybody worldwide to order her too, all the details are here - just keep reading =)

They have her as prints, postcards, limited edition framed canvas giclees, coffee mugs, and possibly other merch too.  I just paint the picture, I don't sell them (Disney makes & sells all official Disney stuff).

If you live by Disney (assuming they don't sell out earlier that day and need to re-stock, she is very popular and they can hardly keep her on the shelves!) you can find Disney's WonderGround Gallery in Florida at Disney Springs at Disney World, and at Downtown Disney in California at Disneyland.

This is the painting I painted LIVE at my Take Over show a few months back at Disneyland =) The original acrylic painting was sold then, but now they have the prints & such - yay!

Can't come to Disney in person? Don't worry, there are many many options for folks WORLDWIDE for international shipping:

A. Order online via local third party Disney shopping services such as YourWDWStore here - basically they live near the parks, they pick up the merchandise and mail it WORLDWIDE. They have access to TONS of my Disney stuff and are very nice.

B. LOADS of Disney locals are selling them on eBay already. These are not me, these are just random people who buy stuff at the themeparks and re-sell on eBay. Usually they cost a bit more, and their own individual store polices may vary as far as shipping and payment options, but just go to eBay and search: JASMINE BECKET URSULA and you will find many things, mugs, limited edition framed canvases & more - all official ©Disney merchandise purchased from Disney and being re-sold or auctioned. Lazy? Click this link here and it will search automatically for ya!

C.  Also check the "Shop Disney Parks" App (download it free from the App Store) - she might be there (I have an old junky phone that isn't fancy enough to get the app, or I'd check myself, lol).  It usually takes a while before new images pop up on the App though, or so people tell me.

Want your Ursula signed? The Lt. Ed. Canvas giclees have already been signed by me (Disney mails them to my house, I sign them, and then I mail them back to Disney HQ in California, and then Disney mails them back to Florida to the Gallery, lol).  So all Limited Edition Ursulas have already been signed by me.  Alternately - come to my April 21st OR my May 19th event at Disney Springs' WonderGround Gallery at the Marketplace Co-Op! I'm happy to sign yours there, I'll be there from 4-7pm those two Saturdays (I go there about once a month since I live nearby).

Alice:  The Wonderland Oracle

Pre-order on Amazon here (US) and Blue Angel here (worldwide)

I'm pleased to announce the upcoming publication of my "Alice:  The Wonderland Oracle" deck!  You can pre-order NOW (details below) or for you Florida folks alternately we'll be having a release party for the deck at the Pop Gallery at Disney Springs on June 30 (details here)

As it's published originally in Australia, they tend to get their stock in first at the publishers' own webiste (Blue Angel) - you can pre-order worldwide here for MAY 2018 here or in the UK/International for September here , in the US here for September up at Amazon (for cheaper) here and soon we'll have autographed copies at my Strangeling website (will be a lot more since I have to first buy them and ship to Florida and then ship to KS and then ship to customers, lol - but hey - they are autographed!) for worldwide shipping too. ESTIMATED shipping date is September 2018 - could vary on either side of that.

Again though, we'll have the autograph party too at the Pop Gallery at Disney Springs June 30 and we'll have a bunch of early copies in stock there.  In fact, if you want an early one that is autographed you can call/email Pop Gallery and they can reserve one for you either in person OR they can mail it worldwide after that night's event ;)  Details here .

The entire oracle deck is Alice in Wonderland themed, featuring my artwork on ALL the cards, instructional booklet by the magnificent author Lucy Cavendish. I have been working on this for five years and am SO PROUD of how it turned out. Speaking of which - we'll have a corresponding Alice in Wonderland Coloring Book in the works too! Both the coloring books and the oracle decks will be at bookstores worldwide, Book Depository, Books a Million, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, all the usual suspects, ANYWHERE in the world.

"Alice's Prize"

Original Acrylic painting 4"x6" $1300 SOLD
 Prints available here

Prints now available from $13.99 here - we ship WORLDWIDE.

"Alice's Prize " - this is just a small illustration for one of the cards in my upcoming Alice in Wonderland Oracle Deck (the FINAL illustration!), but so many of my followers asked me to offer prints of her, so I've up-sized her a bit to make a lovely full sized print of her - turned out adorable. She is indeed the very last illustration for my "Alice in Wonderland" Oracle Deck - specifically for Card 13 – "Everybody has won, and all must have prizes!"

This is from the part of the book after the Caucus Race where Alice is presented her prize (a thimble!) by the Dodo! It has a subtle palette and a sort of "Hudson River School" style landscape in the distance. The original painting SOLD in advance to one of my Patreon Patrons before she was available to the public, but we have open edition glossy paper prints as well as Limited Edition Canvas prints all at my website.

All are at my website here
and on Amazon here
and on Etsy here
We also have them available in our eBay stores (price may vary since shipping is included up there!)  here

"A Dragonling Valentine"

Original Acrylic painting 4"x6" $1300 SOLD
 Prints available here

Prints now available from $13.99 here - we ship WORLDWIDE.

"A Dragonling Valentine" - another little painting of mine, but I decided to offer prints of her based on demand, so I've up-sized her a bit to make a lovely full sized print of her - turned out super cute!

The original painting SOLD in advance to one of my Patreon Patrons before she was available to the public, but we have open edition glossy paper prints as well as Limited Edition Canvas prints all at my website.

All are at my website here
and on Amazon here

GORGEOUS high quality boots featuring several of my designs are up at SpookyKook - vegan friendly, super sturdy, licensed with my artwork =)

Spooky Kook is a UK brand but they will ship WORLDWIDE (including the USA of course). Made from faux nubuck quarter, translucent raw rubber sole and breathable foamed insole. Faux-fur lined collar and faux-suede lining. Four designs! "Heart of Nails" as a greyscale design, "Heavenly Nightshade," "Bringer of Lightning," and "Mermaid with Cephalopods" in full colour - all turned out lovely =) Questions about ordering, shipping, sizing, paying, product questions, etc. - contact Spooky Kook at the link above.  So proud of these!

Updates from Jasmine!

Happy New Year! 2018 is off to a magnificent start.  Sit back, relax and enjoy all my new artwork....

Firstly - new stuff is happening at Disney!  I've been appearing at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts and will be back for many more dates!  Tomorrow (Saturday the 20th) I'll be at Epcot's "Pop Gallery Tent" from 5-7pm over by the Canada Pavilion, and next Friday (the 26th) I'll be at Epcot's "WonderGround Gallery" tent (over by the the France/Morocco Pavilions) from 5-7pm as well.  I'll be back for many other dates too - both tents always have my artwork (Disney stuff at WG, personal stuff at Pop) whether I'm there or not, in case you miss me.  The Pop Gallery Tent has my new Strangeling Vinyl dolls, by the way, and the WonderGround Gallery Tent has my new URSULA prints & merch.  Details and additional dates are on my Events Page here

Speaking of Strangeling Vinyl - we just got our huge shipment of "Alice in the Starry Night" inventory in, so if you pre-ordered your doll they are shipping NOW.  If you were waiting for them to get in stock - we have them NOW so you can order worldwide (we ship anywhere) right here on my website today!

And something fun just for my fans - I'm giving away an original CUSTOM painting up at my Patreon at 8pm EST this coming Monday night!  Join Patreon here - a custom painting means that you'll get to tell me what to paint and even choose a frame.  Tons of other fun stuff happening up there too right now.

New paintings!  I have  four new paintings to show you!  Two have sold, one is up for auction, and one is now available at a gallery!  The first is the original concept painting for my "Alice in the Starry Night" vinyl dolls - I'm doing an auction right now for the actual original 8x10" acrylic painting and you also get a bonus autographed Alice vinyl doll too!  Bidding for the original Alice painting / Doll auction is on eBay right here.  Bidding starts at a penny but it looks like that is moving fast!   "The Moon" original 78 Tarot painting has sold, but prints are  here, and then we have my gorgeous geisha girl in "Kirin and Bakeneko" available from the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles (email them at sherri@coreyhelfordgallery.com or call (310) 287-2340, they ship worldwide).  We do have prints & canvases of "Kirin and Bakeneko" here.  Finally, "Alice's Advice" is a brand new original painting for my upcoming Alice in Wonderland Oracle Deck - the original has sold, but we have prints & canvases now available here.

We have a NEW enamel pin though this month!  The January Pin of the Month - "Frost Dragonling" - available to the public for sale here!  You can see all of the Strangeling Pins we've released so far together here.  Or alternately you can sign up for the Pin Collector Club through my Patreon here and you  will automatically receive Frost Dragonling along with the Patreon-only pin "The Scarecrow" and you'll get each new Pin of the Month as they are released (along with Patreon-only pins and exclusive bonus pin giveaways, discounts, and more).  We are releasing a new Strangeling Lanyard too and you will receive the lanyard (and any new lanyard designs we come out with automatically!.

Speaking of Patreon - I've posted a new Exclusive Patreon coloring page - "Releasing Fireflies" - a new downloadable page - if you are already part of the coloring tier ($5+) you can click here and see all the new pages!  Not yet a member?  Just $5 lets you immediately download ALL the coloring pages so far, all at once.  There are eight pages in all (so theoretically you could always join for a week, download all the coloring pages and quit if you don't want any of the other perks, all for $5).  If you do enjoy them, stick around and you'll get new ones as they are added (and of course previews, sneak peeks, behind the scenes content, giveaways including original paintings & more).  Simply click the link to Patreon here and click the orange "Become a Patron" button, it takes less than sixty seconds.

Finally - we have a couple of LAST CHANCE canvases - the final #5/5 Masterpiece Edition canvas of "Alice Through a Vermeer Glass" is up for auction here and the final #25/25 Limited Edition canvas of "Ninja Dragonlings" is up for auction here.  All the limited/masterpiece editions are all gone other than these last ones up for auction, we do still have open editions available however.

Alice in the Starry Night Strangeling Vinyl Design - Original Painting!

Original Acrylic painting 8"x10" - actual production artwork!
Auction winner also receives an autographed vinyl doll!
eBay auction is here

One of the most unique auctions I have ever run - the winning bidder receives the original 8x10" acrylic painting as well as an autographed Alice doll!  Bidding starts at just a penny - click here for bidding & details

The original painting is 8x10" acrylic painting on masonite panel (.25" thick, could be easily framed).  This is not a print, or an animation cel, but an actual original painting I painted to create one of my line of Strangeling Vinyl - for "Alice in the Starry Night".  (Strangeling Vinyl is now available WORLDWIDE).

The first character in my new Strangeling Vinyl toy/doll collection is Alice, and to create the vinyl dolls I first had to do a complete full-scale original painting for the "concept art" on which the doll design is based.  This is the actual production art piece used to design the dolls!

Second - you get one of the Vinyl Dolls, too!  Your little "Alice in the Starry Night" doll is brand new, just released, autographed on the bottom of the doll and also autographed on the lovely box she comes in.  Keep the doll to play with (small parts, ages 3+) or shadowbox it with the original painting - that'd be cool!

Just want a Strangeling Vinyl Doll - they are in stock now and available for worldwide shipping right here on my website.

It's time for me to give away a new original painting, and I've decided this time to make it a CUSTOM painting again since it was so much fun last time!

I will choose ONE Patron at random at  8:00PM Eastern Time this coming Monday, January 22nd =)

So far the painting l've started looks like she does in the photo above.  The lucky recipient will then get to tell me how to finish the painting!

Many of you may know that I often have a waiting list of 3+ years and a pricelist typically well into the $1000s -$10000s -$for custom artwork, so this is a remarkable opportunity.  I'm always happy to ship anywhere in the world.


PS - here's how the last Patreon Custom turned out -

Strangeling Vinyls now in stock!

In Stock for immediate shipping here (worldwide!)


"Alice in the Starry Night" is now IN STOCK available to order (WORLDWIDE) up at my Strangeling.com website HERE.

If you've already pre-ordered, your doll has now shipped (you'll receive a tracking number in your email, if you don't see it - check spam).

If you haven't ordered yet, we now have all our inventory in stock for immediate shipping!  We ship worldwide.  Up on my website HERE.

"Alice in the Starry Night" is the first of what will (hopefully) be a collection of Strangeling Vinyl toys/dolls, assuming this first little beauty does well, I will then be designing more characters - all around the same size/shape so they can play together (or be displayed together ;)) nicely.  They also come in a neat box for those of you who like keeping collector toys in boxes =)

On my website HERE they are $34.99 (if you are in a country with a different currency, don't worry - your bank or credit/debit card or paypal or whatever will automatically convert it, you can check at xe.com to see updated currency exchange rates, they fluctuate by the minute).   Shipping is actual cost based on your postal/zip code and is calculated during checkout as well (add it to your shopping cart, put your address in, and it will tell you before you have to buy anything).

They also have them in stock NOW at the Pop Gallery at Disney Springs and YES they are also at the Pop Gallery tent at the upcoming Epcot International Festival of the Arts throughout January/February if you'd rather buy yours in person (it'll be $39.99 I think at Disney Springs/Pop Gallery/Epcot, but hey - no shipping, lol, so it will even out).  I'll be there in person for many live autographing sessions, dates & details are here

Jasmine Becket-Griffith
[Tags|, ]

Updates from Jasmine!

Once again - another record-setting update, so much new news!  What a crazy winter so far!

Firstly - Happy Winter Solstice today! (Or summer, down south!).  Happy Christmas, Holidays of all kinds, and upcoming New Year!  Happy everything!  We are on our way up to spend some time up in Kansas City so we can visit with our families over the holidays.  As I'll be at my KC studio, I'll still be painting, we'll still be shipping, printing, etc. - all orders will go as usual, no delays.  The only potential short delays will be with Masterpiece Edition Canvases (as they are currently hanging in Florida, lol, I'll have to wait to mail those out when we return on January 3rd).

Secondly - thank you ALL who came out to my end of year shows at Disney!  I already have added a bunch of new events for 2018 up on my Events Page Here - including seven appearances at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts (at which Disney will debut my new "Ursula" prints & merchandise), and for you UK folks I'll be attending Glastonbury's Avalon Faery Fayre March 10-11.

New paintings!  I have some three new paintings to show you from my Mermaids show!  "Dumbo Octopus Mermaid" - original painting is AVAILABLE details here"Monet Mermaid" original has sold, but prints are here , and then we have a tiny original painting called "Miniature Study with Anglerfish" available from the Pop Gallery (call them at  407-827-8200 or email them here, they ship worldwide).   All of the other seven originals (including Monet Mermaid) were sold at the show, we just have the mini Anglerfish & the Dumbo Octopus mermaid still available (see photos below!), and prints of the two larger ones.

Hey, I'm on a podcast!  I am the special guest this week on the popular podcast "Stories For Nerds" - you can listen beginning tomorrow (Friday, the 22nd) - the episode I appear on is SFN Podcast EpiXode 2.26 and you can listen to it starting tomorrow HERE or download it from wherever you like to get your podcasts.  They have an interview with me and then I chime in for the remaining part of the show which is a "year in review" for all things nerdy (books, scifi/fantasy, computer stuff, movies, video games, etc.).

Pin news!  You guys cleaned us OUT during the holidays this year,  "Ruby Dragonling," "Alice in the Starry Night," "Voodoo in Blue," "Pink Lightning," and "Biohazard" pins are all SOLD OUT and are now retired. You bought them all.  My friend Paul who runs StrangelingUK may have some of these still left in our British inventory - click here - he is in the UK but ships worldwide, so that's your last chance!  Otherwise, you might want to check in at the Strangeling Pin Collecting Group here to see if anybody wants to trade or sell theirs.

We do have a NEW pin though this month!  The December Pin of the Month - "Snowflake Fairy" - available to the public for sale here!  And we still have some of THEM in stock, lol.  And many more to come - you can see all the Strangeling Pins so far here .  Alternately too, the best way to stay on top of things is to sign up as a Patreon Pin Collector on my Patreon here.  While it's still December you can immediately get the Snowflake Fairy (along with the Patreon-only pin "The Scarecrow" , and the Strangeling lanyard), and you'll get each new Pin of the Month as they are released (along with Patreon-only pins and exclusive bonus pin giveaways, discounts, and more).

Speaking of Patreon - we hit our $5k goal - THANK YOU ALL!  That was our goal to hire a new fulltime Florida employee (which will open us up to many more exciting things).  I really can't thank you guys enough, it will change our lives.  I've announced the $6k goal (livestreaming paintcam!) and the $7k goal (giant printers!) up there today too.

In fact, I've just posted a bonus Christmas coloring page - "Nutcracker Suite" along with "Winter" as two new Patreon Exclusive downloadable pages - if you are already part of the coloring tier ($5+) you can click here and see all the new pages!  Not yet a member?  Just $5 lets you immediately download ALL the coloring pages so far, all at once.  If you enjoy them, stick around and you'll get new ones as they are added (and of course previews, sneak peeks, behind the scenes content, giveaways including original paintings & more).  Simply click the link to Patreon here and click the orange "Become a Patron" button, it takes less than sixty seconds.

The clothing company "Spooky Kook" has just launched their amazing "Strangeling" clothing line!  Gorgeous dresses, blouses & more featuring my artwork here!  They are in the UK but they ship worldwide including the USA.  They are reasonably priced (around $30 for a dress!!), have a fantastic range of sizes - UK 8 - 24, which includes a range of plus sizes too.  If you have specific questions about the clothing or sizes please contact Spooky Kook here (I just know about painting, not clothing).  Soft, lovely, high quality fabric too, I love it.

Whew, and that's it!  Now scroll down to see it all!

*
*Patreon 10+ level patrons can use BOTH their PATREON10 discount code ALSO to get 35% off (if you are buying a bunch of stuff, you might want to sign up at Patreon at least for this month, lol, you'll save a ton and it's just $10 for the discount level, sign up or upgrade here )

*Just about ALL my prints, canvases and pins are subject to the discount, and even any original paintings we have in stock at the website (the only exceptions are my Belle and Ariel prints, I think, as those are Disney, etc.)

*My friend Paul at StrangelingUK.com is also running 25% off with coupon code THANKS2017 so if you live in the UK OR if you live ANYWHERE else but want to order UK Exclusive items, check up there too (note: Patreon discount doesn't work on StrangelingUK as that is owned/run by Paul, not me).

Limited FREE Africa Plane Tickets Available for Jasmine's Art Safari 2019

PLEASE NOTE:  I posted this up at Patreon a couple days early for first dibs, but as of this morning there are still a couple of these available, so I'm posting it on my mailing list too before offering these to the public ;)

I came home from my workshop in Nashville to an excited message from Matt Collins at Tourica (the company that is running my workshop/art safari in Africa in 2019 - all details about the Safari are here -  please come with me, they have just started taking deposits NOW so reserve your spot) - he's just signed a promotional deal with South African Airlines that is giving him TEN FREE TICKETS from the US to our starting point in Africa.

He is using them for the next ten students/friends/fans who sign up for my tour.  This will save you hundreds, thousands of dollars as you'll only have to make it to JFK (NY) or IAD (Washington DC) and you'll get to use FREE AIRFARE for all the international bits.  How cool is that?  Again, it's for the first ten people who sign up starting now - (if you've already sent a deposit, check with Matt Collins and see if you can retroactively apply the savings, lol).  Email Matt at matt@touricatours.com to reserve your spot and snag FREE airline tickets, this is incredibly exciting and I'm very thankful to South African Airlines & to Matt at Tourica for using this promo specifically for me & YOU, my friends who will be coming with me to go on safari, travel, make art (or watch me make art, lol) and have fun.  Again though, just the first ten people, several of my Patreon Patrons already snagged them, so if you are wanting to come try to talk to him asap.

Even if we've run out of free tickets, definitely still get your deposit in to save your spot, as space is limited.  Again - any questions - email Matt Collins at matt@touricatours.com  (unless it's specifically an art-related question, and in that case ask ME!).  The itinerary and other details are here for the tour/workshop.

Jasmine Becket-Griffith
[Tags|]

Updates from Jasmine!

And again I think this might be another record-setting update, so much new news!  It's been awhile since I've had the time to send out my mailing list, so you are in for another treat today.  Sit back, make some tea, and get ready for pretty pictures and good news.

Firstly - we are back home from Nashville, where I was a teacher at The Fantastic Workshop!  The workshop was amazing (fantastic even), had a blast!  We are back home now and gearing up for our big annual Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale.  Starting Friday and running all four days we'll have a huge sale, 25% off all prints & pins at Strangeling.com and StrangelingUK.com with coupon code THANKS2017 - I'll send out a reminder, don't worry.

Secondly - I am GIVING AWAY a custom original painting!  At 8pm Wednesday, November 22 we will randomly choose one of my Patreon Patrons, all members will be entered automatically (if you're not a member yet sign up here by 8pm Wednesday so you'll get in!!!).  The winner will get to tell me how to finish the painting to your own specifications and will receive the original painting in your own choice of frame - details below!  Your own chance to see your idea painting, and yes you get the original painting.

I've got a couple of upcoming shows here in Florida at Disney Springs - my Mermaids show is  December 9 (6-9pm at the Pop Gallery), and an autographing evening for Disney on December 16 (4-7 at the Co-Op).  See them on my official events page here .  For the Mermaids Show we'll be giving away an exclusive Dumbo Octopus Mermaid Pin to the first 100 customers - details here or scroll down below in this update!

New paintings!  I have two new paintings to show you (both the originals have already sold, but we have prints & canvases).  "Unseelie Court:  Gluttony" is here, "Faces of Faery 241" (featuring an American Staffordshire Terrier!) is here!

In addition, I finally have the original "Bone Chariot" painting AVAILABLE here - 52" high in a magnificent frame, details below with photos or click here.

ACEO cards!  I have a batch of brand new ACEO Cards HERE (Art Cards, Editions & Originals = ACEOs - trading card sized pieces of art created by many artists online).  Each is up for auction starting at just on penny each, I only make one single ACEO card for each painting I do, so they are one of a kind, 2.5x3.5" canvas giclees that are each hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed and numbered #1 out of 1!  Again, click here to see them all or to place bids.

Pins, Pins, Pins - we have the November Pin of the Month - "Wolf Moon" - available to the public for sale here!  We also have released a brand new Patreon Exclusive Pin - "The Scarecrow" - details about her are here.  She is not for sale, but is an exclusive for all of our Patreon Pin Collectors (the $25 tier).  If you are already a Patreon pin collector both "The Scarecrow" and "Wolf Moon" are on their way!  If you are not yet, sign up here and you'll get both along with the Strangeling lanyard here.

Speaking of Patreon, some of you will be VERY interested in this - as some of you know, my husband and partner Matthew David Becket is a writer of wonderful fiction, and he has created his own personal Patreon here to showcase his writings (including a Patreon exclusive serialized story "Bleeding Garbage", various writing tutorials & behind-the-scenes info, movie reviews and more writing stuff).  He's preparing to launch audio versions too.  Not for children.  Join him here.  Starting next year we'll be collaborating on what we hope to be a weekly video program too, so stay tuned ;)

More Patreon news - I'm giving my Patrons a free BONUS coloring page "Fruit Dragonling" as a Thanksgiving Gift this week (probably tomorrow!) along with the Ninja Dragonlings coloring page this month.  My coloring pages are Exclusive to Patreon (not found anywhere else), downloadable/printable, 1-2 new ones per month, and added to all the other Patreon perks for patrons at the $5+ tier level.  Not a member? Get up there now and get in on the ground floor, click here for details. You'll get ALL the coloring pages so far immediately, and all the new ones as they are released.  If you are already a Patreon Patron at the Coloring Tier, you can always see ALL the Patreon Exclusive Coloring Pages HERE and can download them as often as you like.

My Butterfly Virtues figurine collection is now available worldwide and you can see actual PHOTOS (not just the concept art) popping up!  See below for details.  USA customers can order the collection now, immediate shipment as they are in stock hereLive outside the US?  Burning Desires here has started offering the first couple in the series at their page here for worldwide shipping.

Do you love beautiful handmade ink pens?  I do!  So does Michelle, the artist behind "Innovations in Ink" - she has licensed many of my paintings to put on her handmade artisanal ink pens and you can see them here .  You can also see & purchase them in person at the Pop Gallery at Disney Springs - they really must be seen in person to be appreciated (the ones at Pop Gallery actually contain my physical signature on a panel inside the pen itself - so neat!).

Again - the entry deadline for my Original Custom Painting is 8pm Wednesday night, Eastern Time.  All tiers and all members of my Patreon page here will automatically be entered literally up to the very last second at 8pm, so get up there if you can!

Original Custom Painting Giveaway!

8pm Wednesday, November 22 - all members are entered
Sign up at Patreon here!

Yes, I'm giving away a CUSTOM PAINTING this month!  The winner (ALL of my Patreon Patrons will be automatically entered, all levels, you don't need to do anything as long as your account is valid!) will be selected via Random Number Generator on Wednesday, November 22nd at around 8pm Eastern Time.  Not a member? Sign up at my Patreon page here

Yes, you'll get your own custom original painting - the one in the photo above.  It's not a huge painting, but it's YOURS, and you can pick either of the picture frames shown here too (or if you want to frame her yourself, you can do that later).

She's an original acrylic painting on panel, and so far she looks just like the photo above.  If you are the winner, I will contact you directly and you'll get to tell me how to finish her and then I'll mail you the finished original painting - just for you =)

You'll get to decide:

*Hairstyle/colour

*Skintone/makeup (she's just grey now, but I can make her any colour you want!)

*Eyes (colour, eyemakeup, I can change her expression with her eyebrows....)

*Wings?  Is she a fairy?  Maybe she's a mermaid?

*Portrait - she is going to have the proportions & face type as shown, but if you send me a photo of yourself or somebody you love I can match the painting's skin/hair/eyes with the photo

*Clothing (or not?) - she's roughly mid chest level & up, portrait style so I can't exactly paint in any shoes or legs, lol, but I can paint any kind of top you like, feel free to send photos of what you're wanting for reference

*Tattoos/jewelry

*Background/theme (whatever I can fit around her!)  Is she in space?  Underwater?  Surrounded by spiders?  If can fit it in, I can paint it.

*Perhaps a small pet or other accessory (again, keep in mind the size of the painting and the figure within it, but I could definitely fit in a pet dragon or puppy or whatever!)

I'll then finish the painting to meet your specifications, email you a pic for your approval, then I'll varnish, frame and mail you the original painting itself for you to keep.

What I CAN'T do:

*I can't paint Disney characters for you, I can only do that for the Walt Disney Company.

*Other people's intellectual property (I can't take characters or artwork or trademarked images that belong to other people, movies, comics etc.) - unless you yourself have obtained written and verifiable permission and/or a licensing agreement from the IP holder.

*Brand logos or political icons (I'm not an editorial cartoonist nor do I want my artwork used to leverage political or commercial agendas)

*I cannot transfer the copyright of the finished piece, as the artist I retain all the copyright and reproduction rights to the image.  If you are interested in hiring me to create a "work-for-hire" commissioned piece this is not the place, just contact me privately, lol.

*I cannot squeeze in additional faces.  Please don't ask me to fit in a weirdly small person next to her to try to get two-for-one, lol - it will look bad and oddly unbalanced.  I can totally fit in a cat or a little dragon, but no more humanoids should be added in this piece.

This is going to be fun!!!

Thank you all for the support!  As long as you are signed up at my Patreon page here you will be among those included in the original custom painting giveaway (and zillions of other fun giveaways and other good stuff).   Thank you all so much for your support, I could not do what I do without you.

XO

Pin News!

Secondly - now that we have run out of Patreon Exclusive "Paisley" pins, our next Patreon Exclusive Pin is "The Scarecrow" (perfect for late autumn!).   If you are already a Patreon Pin Collector, yours is already in the mail!  If you are not, you can sign up at the $25 tier here at Patreon and you'll receive both "The Scarecrow" AND "Wolf Moon" and the Strangeling Lanyard right away (international shipping at Patreon is always included!) here .  The Scarecrow pin is not for sale to the public, and is an exclusive gift for my Patrons.



Here's the concept artwork for my upcoming "Mermaids" show giveaway pin!  It's official - the Pop Gallery will start giving away the "Dumbo Octopus Mermaid" Exclusive Pins at 4:00pm on December 9th to the first 100 customers. Yes, customer does mean that you need to buy something (it can be small, but it needs to be a Jasmine Becket-Griffith item of some sort).  More details about the event are here.

They will have 100 pins, one pin per person limit, person must make a purchase (ie, if you and your two friends come and buy a print = only one pin. If you and your two friends come and each buy a print = 3 pins). This is quite a special giveaway, so they are going to follow this rule strictly. I myself will be showing up at the Pop Gallery at 6pm, so you have two hours before that to snag a pin if you are an earlybird. They'll keep giving away pins to customers making Jasmine Becket-Griffith purchases until all 100 pins have been given away!

I'll be there in person from 6-9pm and can autograph anything you want - anything you bring from home or buy at the show. We'll have the Mermaids Coloring Books, I'll be debuting a couple new Mermaid paintings, we'll have tons of other mermaid themed (and non-mermaid themed) prints, canvases, books, pins, jewelry, paintings, oracle decks & more. Again - pin giveaway starts at 4PM! Free with any JBG purchase. These pins will NOT be for sale elsewhere. Any extra pins will be randomly given away (NOT sold) to Patreon Pin Tier Patron.  More details about the Mermaids Event are here.

Innovations In Ink

High end handmade artisanal ink pens are here

At Innovations in Ink here
I'm pleased to announce my partnership with Innovations In Ink! Super high-end handmade artisanal ink pens.

It is difficult to describe/show off online the hours of work and level of quality that goes into each and every one of these. Each is hand-turned and created by my friend Michelle, an artisan pen crafter, and you can see them here and also IN PERSON at the Pop Gallery located at Disney Springs here in Florida.

If anybody has any questions please contact Michelle at Innovations in Ink on their website (I'm just the artist who did the paintings, lol, I do not make or sell the pens).

Pssst - these would make amazing Christmas gifts!

Updates from Jasmine!

It’s officially my biggest update ever!  It’s been awhile since I’ve had the time to send out my mailing list, so you are in for a BIG treat today.  Sit back, make some tea, and enjoy all the new stuff =)</p>

Firstly – we’re leaving shortly for California!  I’m going to be doing my “Take Over” in Anaheim at Disneyland’s Downtown Disney, at the WonderGround Gallery October 27th, 28th & 29th along with my fellow Disney artist Joey Chou.  The entire gallery will be filled with our art (including my non-Disney artwork) – thousands of prints, canvases, postcards, shirts, mugs, magnets, Vinlymation dolls, and more.  I will be painting LIVE and Disney has contracted me to paint URSULA!  I’ll be there in person each day from 1-9pm, all three days (short break for dinner/bathroom around 6-ish).  Details are here.


instagramursulawip1

Jasmine's Event Canceled by Storm, FOF Month, More Coloring Book News, Ninja Dragonlings, Calendars [Sep. 8th, 2017|05:33 pm]

Updates from Jasmine!

Another big update - wow, we have been busy!

Firstly - thank you all who have sent kind & worried messages to us about the hurricane!  Please don't worry, we are fine, we live very near Orlando in Central Florida, Irma should be only a tropical storm (or less than a hurricane) by the time she arrives here.  We've been through Cat 4s before in our fortress of a house and have never had problems, we are all set. Probably just a bunch of rain here.

That being said, just to be on the safe side, Disney has unfortunately canceled my WonderGround Co-Op tomorrow night (wind & rain of any sort aren't good for art shows!).  They have however scheduled me for three more new events at Disney Springs - mark your calendars - November 11 (4-7pm at the Co-Op), December 9 (6-9pm at the Pop Gallery), December 16 (4-7 at the Co-Op).  I'll add them to my official events page here SOON.

The Kansas City Renaissance Festival is in full swing and my shop is open every weekend, #251 over by the Joust!  I'll be there in person for sure on September 30, October 1, October 7, October 8 if you'd like autographs.

Thank you all who came to see us at DragonCon and made it our best DragonCon ever!!  Were you not able to come but still want to score some for the FREE DragonCon swag?  We snagged a ton of the extra DC Room Key Cards I designed (and autographed), set aside 8 of the DC Strangeling reusable giant plastic carrier bags, and have half a dozen each of the backups of the DragonCon Exclusive Pins! No, I will not sell these, but I will be giving them away as prizes randomly to my Patreon Patrons sometime next week! Sign up for Patreon here to get in on the giveaways next week, we'll have dozens of winners!

One of my new paintings that debuted at DragonCon was "Ninja Dragonlings!" The original sold at the show but we now have prints & canvases on sale this week on my website here.

Big announcement - September is Faces of Faery Fan Month! All 240 Faces of Faery prints (including all canvases) here at my website are 25% off with code FOF25 . We'll also be doing fun things like auctioning off your own custom Faces of Faery later this month, releasing some classic #1s that have been in the vault, and showing off some brand new original FOFs!

Would you like your Mermaids Coloring book a couple months before everybody else, no matter where you live?  Would you also like it autographed?  Well, we are getting a limited number of advance author copies that will be IN STOCK IN OCTOBER and I can autograph them for you! We have them up for pre-order on my website here, we ship worldwide (we can't offer the low prices Amazon can, lol, but hey - they're autographed!).  All the bookstores are saying "Mid December" for shipping, and theirs won't be autographed, so this is kinda neat for you earlybirds!

Next up - in case anybody missed the announcement, in other coloring news - starting next week - we are going to start offering free coloring pages to my Patreon patrons - completely different than any pictures found in my coloring books, these will be all new, downloadable Patreon Exclusive Coloring pages - this new benefit will be added to all the other Patreon perks for patrons at the $5+ tier level.  Not a member? Get up there now and get in on the ground floor, click here for details.  This will help tide you all over while we wait for the Mermaids Coloring Book (again though, the Patreon Exclusive Coloring Pages will not be found in any coloring book - so don't worry about duplicates, these will be all new!)

And finally - Brushdance has just released my 2018 Calendar! The Strangeling 2018 Calendar is available worldwide!  There is a wall calendar (12 pictures, full sized) and a weekly planner (just artwork on the cover).  Just go to Google and search:  Strangeling 2018 Calendar  (don't call it the Jasmine Becket-Griffith Calendar as some bookstores don't bother with my long windy name).  Or click for - Amazon, or AmazonUK , BookDepository (free delivery worldwide!), Calendars.com , Brushdance.com - all sorts of places have it in stock now.

"Ninja Dragonlings"

Original Acrylic painting 12"x16" $5200 SOLD at DragonCon
 Prints available here

Prints now available from $9.99 here - we ship WORLDWIDE.

I love this one! The original painting was sold at DragonCon (it appeared on the hotel key cards this year! I have some of the extra key cards too, we'll be giving those away over at my Patreon!).  You may recognize these from my Hamilton Collection figurine designs from many years back - Izumi the Water Ninja, and Yuriko the Fire Ninja!

All are at my website here
and on Amazon here
and on Etsy here
We also have them available in our eBay stores here

Faces of Faery Fan Month!

Use code FOF25 during checkout - 25% off all Faces of Faery here

All Faces of Faery prints & canvases are 25% off all September with code:  FOF25

Yes, all 240 of them!  All are beautiful little square paintings, great for groupings or fitting in small spaces, I adore them.  The Faces of Faery is a series of hundreds of paintings I've been working on over the past decade or so, each featuring a variety of types of characters all with fantastical elements of faery to one extent of another.

You can see the entire set of them all here

And again, during checkout enter code FOF25 and you'll get 25% off all Faces of Faery.

We'll also be doing some other fun FOF related stuff all month - new Faces of Faery originals, an auction for a custom Faces of Faery painting, releasing the #1s of some old favourites that have been hanging out in my art closet, lol, and more!.

Coloring Pages are Coming!

Will be available through my Patreon for $5+ Members here

Here's a sneak preview - this will be out October 2nd and my stepsister Sonya helpfully colored one in partially to give us all a sneak peek!

You asked for it, you got it!

Just for my Patreon patrons, we are adding a new perk.  Those of you in the $5+ tier will now get Patreon Exclusive Coloring Pages of my artwork, just for you guys!  These will be completely different pictures not found in any coloring books, we're doing them JUST for Patreon.

You can sign up for Patreon here, coloring pages are perks for $5+

First page coming out September 12 - it will be "Bumblebee Dragonling", then October 2nd we'll have "Milagros:  La Calavera."  This is not a new tier, it's just an added perk on top of all the other stuff the $5+ members already get!  If you are already $5+ you will automatically get to download the new coloring pages as they pop up.  If you are not yet, you can upgrade your pledge or if you are brand new just click the "Become a Patron" button on Patreon here.

The pages will be downloadable - we are definitely doing one new one each month (if this goes well we'll start doing them more often).  They are exclusive to Patreon members and their households, the downloadable image can be downloaded and printed as much as you like for yourself & your own household (but not re-distributed elsewhere without written permission).

You probably hear a lot of us talking about Patreon - it is a ton of fun and you get a lot of great perks & free stuff, behind-the-scenes info, advance previews, discounts, free original painting giveaways, there's a Patreon Pin Collector Club and more - check it out here.

Early Autographed Mermaids Coloring Books!

Shipping in mid October, worldwide, signed by ME!  Pre-order here

Want a signed copy and want your book months early?  Worldwide? Autographed copies, worldwide shipping - Pre-Order for October NOW here we have officially been assured that we'll have a handful (around 150-200) author advance copies of the Mermaids Coloring Book in MID-OCTOBER for me to autograph and sell on my website here! We ship anywhere in the world!

NOTE:  You can also pre-order at all the Amazons, BookDepository, Llewellyn, BlueAngelOnline, etc. for mid-December shipping (according to their websites), but those will not be autographed (but are cheaper of course).

Obviously since I have to first mail them to myself from Australia to autograph and then mail to our shipping center in Kansas, lol, those costs jack up the price of what I have to charge on my own site, so that is why they cost more from me than from Amazon or other booksellers (also my wholesale cost is astronomical compared to what the big companies get, even as the artist). Shipping too is more expensive, as we just have a regular personal shipping account (unlike Amazon, etc.) - we cannot control this.  We charge exactly what the post office charges us, not a penny more.

But hey - mine will be signed by the artist (me!) and will arrive months earlier!

Also too - if you are in Florida in December- December 9th we'll be having a Mermaids event at Pop Gallery at Disney Springs - we'll have the coloring books there and I can autograph those for ya too, and in person! Details about that event are here.
