Jasmine Becket-Griffith
It's official =)

I'm signing contracts right now with a couple of different merchandise companies that will be licensing my artwork! This coming year, you will see my paintings on everything from T-Shirts and Postcards to Keychains and Air Fresheners =) This will be throughout the US and in Canada, in thousands of retail stores such as Hot Topic, Gadzook's, JC Penney's, and even discount stores like Walmart. I will also be selling the same lines of my merchandise on my website. Yay!!!!!!!!! This kind of thing generally moves rather slowly though, so it will still be awhile before things are on the shelves. I'll update as things progress!!!

Congrats, Jasmine!!! Now I don't understand the bene's to this merchandising program (profit aside) - what will it do to the price of your original paintings? Will you be keeping everything the same?

I retain all of the rights I had before - I'm just licensing some of my images to two different merchandise companies, who then sell wholesale to different retail chains. I get a chunk in royalties (and everything has my name on it and stuff so it's great exposure!).

I keep creative control and still all of the same rights as before! The only thing binding in the contracts is that I do not license those specific images for those same specific products with a competing company. So, nothing will change with my whole setup with prints, paintings, eBay, any of that =) I just get more exposure and collect the checks =)

Congrats

I just read your post in prohottopic. : )

How do you like living in Celebration? I visted Genesis Orlando (animation studio) in Celebration last November, that town is unlike any I've ever seen. Except in movies. : )
