It's FINALLY finished! [Mar. 6th, 2005|07:34 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
[mood |exhaustedexhausted]

Wow - don't you just love it when you think something will take a couple of hours of work when really it needs, oh, about 65 hours of work? I just lost 4 days of my life, lol.

But with wonderful results - I won't ever need an overhaul like that again - everything's all up to date and I have a new system where adding new updates won't be so bad - woohoo!

Check it out here:

http://www.strangeling.com



There are a lot of new changes:

*Many new prints added - ALL of my most recent paintings! All in the gallery: http://www.strangeling.com/gallery.html
*New section for books & upcoming books: http://www.strangeling.com/books.html
*New section for licensed merchandise - buy it right on the website!: http://www.strangeling.com/merchandise.html
*CANVAS PRINTS! This is the biggest news - I now have hand embellished limited edition canvas prints available for ALL of the paintings on my website! You can now buy them directly from www.strangeling.com - it is now an option alongside the standard prints in my gallery. Even on my brand new paintings and my very early paintings! Remember - each painting is limited to just 25 hand-painted canvas prints, so grab one before they run out! Once they are sold out, they are gone forever. Many of these are not even available on eBay! (If you don't have a credit/debit card, just email me and I'll tell you how to send a check/money order).
*"For my Fans" http://www.strangeling.com/fans.html - this is where I need your help - I am looking for photos from my fans! If if you have a tattoo based on my artwork, just email me a photo and I'll post it! Or if you have one of my prints or paintings framed up on your wall - I'd love to see a photo and might even post it on the website! Or if you have a sticker stuck on your car, or a picture of yourself next to one of my paintings, etc. etc. etc. I've got a lot of pics already, but I need more!!!!
*I have also updated the FAQ, etc. - I forget what all I did, hehe - I've been a webmistress zombie for the past four days.........
I have crazy catching up to do with email & LJ, but I seriously need a break from the computer for the rest of the night - my brain is fried!

See you all tomorrow =P

HAHA Ya can count on me to take a cheesy pic of myself holding the portrait

People doesn't always understand how freakin important it is for us to see these pictures, it makes us just so happy, I'm always so happy and touched each time I see fans pic, not only they collect our stuff but they even take the time to show us how important and precious it is for them on a photo, that is trully like having a gold medal as the artist !! ^_^

The updates are great!!!! I really love your series of girl-with-dragon paintings. They are absolutely beautiful (and adorable)...but, then again, I love most all your work.

You're def. one of the artists I plan to buy original work from someday. I'll have to buy a canvas print in the meantime to help give me patience (lol) - but which one to pick? :D

Just wanted to say hello and let you know that all of your hard work is appreciated.

Argh - I swear - this is the crappiest work there is! Normally I don't mind working on my website, like when I'm just adding new prints or whatever - that part was kind of fun, and making new sections and stuff is cool, but this time it was awful because after that I was just changing the shopping cart, payment buttons and descriptions on about 250 different pages to include the canvas print option, and each page took about 8-10 minutes to update & publish..... Argh! I'm glad that's over with!!!

Looks great Jasmine!!! I can't wait for the World of Faery book, is that the 2nd one of the Art of Faery, or is it a different book? And I'm anxiously awaiting your book too!!! I'm gonna have soo many faerie art books that I'll be inspired forever!!! Wooohoooo!!

It's the "sequel" for The Art of Faery >^__^< This one is affiliated with Alan Lee, kind of like how the first one was with Brian Froud. I think that's so cool since their joint book "Faeries" was one of my very first inspirations in fairy art!

Wow. very cool, you've been very busy. I'll definitely keep an eye on your book-section there. When I get back to the US I am going to order those fairy-books, hehehe ^_^. Books are so much cheaper there then in Europe.
Anyway, good luck with painting today ^_^

Lovely-I know all too well the mind numbing, arse ache that is site updates-just two months before I leave it behind and get to concentrate on just my own though*heh.

Theres just one thing missing from miss Jasmines site, and its photos of Jasmine and her fam.
It just seemed really great to see those pics the other week, I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking so:)
Having said that-you possibly get enough intrusion from weird elements-I know I do:P
I tell ya, you gotta have skin like a calloused rhino in this game.*sheesh

Oh man, no kidding - it was awful - I know I'm in a bad way when I catch myself thinking fondly of the days when I worked at Dairy Queen, lol. It's all over now though, and I'm glad I did it - I've sold six canvas prints since last night right off of my website, so that's an incredible affirmation =)

Ah! I really should post some more family pics up there - something to add on for next time =)

Jasmine, I just have to say something. You know the portraits of other people you're doing? I think they're worth so much more than they've been selling for. Please, please don't stop doing them. They're amazing, and they are really stretching your art abilities beyond all that I've seen so far. Sure, part of it's selfish (I wanna be painted, as do we all), but mostly, it's because I love to see fresh, new, expansive things from you. Please don't let the money dictate. Please? ^_^ Muuah! ^x^

Lol, thank you Kat! Oh yes - with the portraits I do of my friends - I really just do those for fun =) Portraits of specific people never sell particularly well, but I think that they help me grow as an artist, so I always do a couple of them from time to time. Any $$ I get for those types of paintings is just a little bonus ;)
