Good morning!! [Jun. 20th, 2005|11:40 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Last night we went with foxmagic out to see "Batman Begins"! The theatre was packed! Usually it's not at all crowded on Sunday nights - bizarre. The showing we wanted to see was sold out (I've never seen that happen on a Sunday at Downtown Disney!) so we had to wait for a later showing. I really enjoyed it - what a great movie! Out of the actors who have portrayed Batman, I think I have to vote Christian Bale as the best. When he was being the more playboy-ish rich-boy Bruce Wayne though I kept picturing him as his American Psycho character, LOL!

Matt & Amber are off buying supplies at Costco, and Chris & I are here working. Our downstairs area is so crazy looking right now with all of us living/working here - the living room and kitchen are normal, but the rest of the place has been taken over by art/business stuff. It doesn't look like a house, more like some crazy artists' colony/printshop/computer office or soemthing! We have several big computer stations of course, printers, scanners, etc. Then of course are the filing cabinets/shelves/etc. for my business stuff. Then is my big art studio section with all of my paint racks, desk, supplies, etc. Then is Chris' art studio section with all of his figurines paints, supplies, desk, etc. It's really kind of a cool setup we have here.

I've got a couple of last minute touchups to do on my current commission, and then I might work on some new canvas prints and perhaps some new minis! Or maybe start a new big painting. I'm not sure =P

Pretty soon I will be beginning to paint my big Morgan Le Fay self-portrait for the Arthurian Legends show. That ought to be fun! I've painted a few Morgan Le Fays in the past, but I'm such a better artist now, so that ought to be interesting. I might show her with a pretty blonde Guinevere too, like a study in contrasts, or I might just show her alone - I'm not sure yet!

I'll be painting in just a few minutes - you can peek in on me HERE on my webcam as usual =)

Ahh I need to see batman begins too, lol. That one AND Madagascar. But the new Batman movie is still not in our cinemas if I'm not mistaken.

Haha, your place must look like a real working space, lol. No one will believe it was a house before, haha.

And Morgan le Fay? Wow, I never saw a painting of her from you yet. I am very curious again. It's probably another beautiful piece coming up ^^
I am thinking of making something for that contest as well. It's such an interesting subject. My dad has a very cool book about 'the legends of arthur explained'

Anyway, have fun painting ^___o

They're older paintings, not up on my website any more - I will try to track down the old scans and post them when I do the new one to show everybody!

I always liked the Morgan Le Fay character from all different versions of the Arthur legends, but of course I'm most partial to the one from the Marion Zimmer Bradley's "Mists of Avalon" book ;)

Ah yes, those books are very nice. I have read them too. Actually I loved the character Raven the best (does she have the same name in english?). I was thinking of doing a portrait of her. She was so mystical because she couldn't talk, otherwise she would break her 'pact'. And in the end she screamed it out. It gave me goosebumps, lol ^^

Yes, it was Raven in English too. That was a chilling part of the book, I loved it :)

Not yet - he works freelance directly with clients for the most part. He does eBay sometimes though!

I can't wait to see Batman. Even though I have never been a big Christian Bale fan it looks like it'll be good. I also, definitely, can't wait to see your Morgan Le Fay painting!

The painting is looking so cute!!! I can't wait for new mini's, the last ones where my favorite.

I agree Christian Bale is my favorite Batman too, and it doesn't hurt that he is pretty darn cute:o) There was some flashbacks of him in American Psycho, but thats ok I'm not complaining LOL..it was still a great movie, especially the car chase. Well talk to you later, I can't wait to see new paintings :o) Kelsy

Oh. Batman Begins was SO good.

And to think, my father wanted to go see the last Star Wars instead. Ungh.

Off that tangent - HELLO! I've been watching some of your stuff through Bik. I'm not sure whether I've stepped out of the lurking shadows yet or not, so I thought I'd do so anyway.

Had I any money whatsoever, you'd have a bid. Great, great stuff.

Re: Hi!

Thank you so much! >^__^<

Hey, I like Star Wars too, lol - I've already seen it a couple of times at the theatre though, hehe. I want to see Howl's Moving Castle next!

I LOVE MEMENTO! I'm curious to see what Christopher Nolan goes on to do next - he's getting a good track record with me.
