ARGGGHHHH!! (And, um, new prints!) [Mar. 11th, 2005|08:58 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
[mood |grumpygrumpy]

Once a year, AOL decides to forget that I am a verified bulk mailer and disables my account for sending too many emails at once (ie, my MAILING LIST!). And once a year I call them, do the verified bulk mailer thing again, and then they apologize and I have to wait 24 hours to send it out again =P

And today is that day >__<

I just wanted to tell everybody that I had some new prints, etc. Geez! They apologized profusely, and told me everything will be back to normal and I can send out tomorrow. But I want to now, darn it! Ugh!

Especially since I've finally got a BRAND NEW painting available as prints! It's actually the commissioned piece you guys saw me working on (it's going to be a backdrop/banner for a tattoo parlour's convention booth). It turned out really cool and the client said they didn't mind if I sold prints, so here you go! I thought a lot of you all would like this one! And I went ahead and made them "sale" prints this week - click below to see.....

"Calling the Storm 8"x10" print
"Calling the Storm 12"x16" print

And then I have a special little two-print set for the ferret lovers out there!
"Two of a Kind" and my new "A Ferret and His Fairy" together for one low price!

"Wily Ferret Combo!!!"

And then if you are looking for "A Ferret and His Fairy" by itself......

"A Ferret and His Fairy" 8"x10"


"A Ferret and His Fairy" 12"x16"

Only the first few names on my mailing list received the update, but none of the others did, so you probably won't get one until tomorrow, so I thought I'd post it all here =)

You can see ALL of my sale prints HERE together.

Okay - off to eat some food and then more painting!

It's gorgeous!!! :) I love how you painted the lightening. BTW, I got your ML e-mail ;) I'm not sure how far down on the list I am though. Just thought I'd let you know.

The first five "groups" got their mailing list updates - I have about 20-some groups, each with like 500 people. With AOLs address book I can have about 500 emails per group, and send 5 groups at a time, so I have to write four separate letters each time, blind cc-ing five groups each time. It's not really as confusing as it sounds! You must be in one of the first groups! You signed on pretty early, if I remember correctly ;)

You do those hands beautifully, and you know what? Maybe I'm imagining it but they look like an artist's hands. Beautiful especially the lightning!

I love when you have a chance to do witch/pagan oriented pieces! It's nice to see all of the wonderful symbolism, and the lightning turned out gorgeous!

24 hours? I wonder why they can't fix it faster than that? All I can say is that is one giant mailing list! LOL XOXO

Nice! I was telling my high priestess tonight during class (I'm studying for pagan clergy with the BFC) about your work. She owns a metaphysical shop and a Celtic shop and is looking for new artist and can't find any. She usually sells Froud and Brown. I have a massive Froud "Goblins" in my living room!! Anyways I'm emailing her your information and I hope she contacts you soon for wholesale stuff. I have another friend that owns a shop in PA that I'm emailing to...almost forgot about her! I'm sure your work will go over well around here and I'm going to contact the BFC newsletter editor and see if she won't add you in our next newsletter.....Just a link sort of thing for fairy/gothic art.

Your a great artist and your personality is just as fantastic. Must spread the word. :)

Customized Paintings

Hi Jasmine!
I saw on ebay that you were doing customized paintings requested by your fans. I was curious about something though. Do you do custom painting requests going by pictures that fans send you? I was wondering because I have a 4 year niece who is a downs baby, and I think that you could make her into the cutest little fairy. I have already tried but I think you could do sooooo much better! And, if you do accept requests, how much would something like that cost?

Re: Customized Paintings

Hi Abby!!!!

I do custom paintings & portraits on a commissioned basis (basically that means that people hire me to paint whatever they like, pretty much!) - my pricelist is here:


Just let me know if you are interested! I've got a couple weeks of a "waiting list" usually, but I can always add you on the list and get started in the next couple of weeks!

I do always have an on-going "call for models" also - a lot of fans send me photos of themselves or their friends/family and sometimes I will use them for models in my paintings. I've received over 2,000 photos though, hehe, so there's no guarantee that I will be able to use them, but you never know! You're welcome to email any photos you'd like (be sure that you have permission from anybody in the photos!). If I ever end up using any I always send you a free print of the finished painting. =) Just put "Model Photos" in the title of the email!

Re: yay i can buy stuff!


Let me see - Calling the Storm is on sale for $10, and then the others are each $13.99, which would make the total $51.97 and then I can ship them all together in one package to the UK for just $5, which would make the total = $56.97

If you'd like to pay by paypal (that's the easiest) - just use JasmineToad@aol.com as the email recipient!

Or if you'd like to send an international money order in US funds, just send it to me at:

Jasmine Becket-Griffith
PO BOX 470932
Celebration, FL 34747-0932

If you pay by paypal be sure to also send an email to me with the word "order" in the subject line and please list the names of the prints and the sizes (8x10s) in the email somewhere along with your address! Or if you are sending payment by post, please write the names of the prints and the sizes along with your address & email address on a sheet of paper with the payment =) That will help us keep the order straight =)

Thank you so much!!!!!!!!

Oh man . . . that Calling the Storm painting is amazing! How sweet of him to let you offer prints. I love the blue tattooing around her wrists and the lightnint and the way your hair is raised. Awesome job! ^_~

A ferret and his fairy is adorable. =) I love the richness of the ferret's hair, and your fairies are always cute!
