My Book >^__^ [Aug. 10th, 2004|07:26 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
As some of you may know, I'm working on a "solo" book (ie, featuring just me, and of course my artwork!). It will be published later this year (not a HUGE release or anything, but will be for sale in specialty shops, online, of course on my website, etc.). Very exciting stuff!!! I'm sorry, I don't have a lot of the details yet, but of course I'll keep you all updated.

The working title is simply "Fairy" (the Art of Jasmine Becket-Griffith), and I've got the cover art here to share! Of course, cover art and title are subject to change, but here it is for now:

Pretty cool, eh? Let me know what you guys think! "Starry Night Fairy" is one of my favourite paintings so far, so I think it would be good for the cover. This book is going to focus on my fairy artwork, so I thought that title would be appropriate. Simple, but straight to the point, lol.

Let me see, what else is going on.... I finished up that commission I was working on! I'll probably start a new piece tonight - I'll post a link to my webcam when I start (I've got a couple of things to do first).

Funny enough, my print of that pic looks down on me while I work, the same as Victoria's "Rhiannon"
And...usually my husband puts up with the prints I have more than loving them the same way as I do, but last night when I asked him to frame some of my prints, he said "Only as long as one of them's that pretty one" :)
That cover, with all it's colours & detail will draw people into the book, even those who aren't already fans!!

Amazing....just amazing. I'm definitely getting one of these. Your work is, by far, the very best I have ever seen and I'm turning more and more people on to it everyday. Thanks for sharing such brilliant work with us.
