Painting! [Oct. 26th, 2005|04:53 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Yay! I've just been told that my stock of "Captive Fairy" limited edition resin statues will be here in about 1-2 weeks! Remember, these are limited to 2000 statues, and no more will ever be made after that, so order early if you are going to want one ;) I'll be taking orders as soon as I have them in stock. Since they are limited in quantity I'm not going to be taking pre-orders, I'm going to make sure I have them actually here in person so I don't accidentally over-sell them. I will let you all know when they are available! (I'll be selling them for $44.99).

The NIN concert last night was so great, my ears are still ringing. It was an awesome show, Trent did soooo many songs, from ALL of his albums. The visuals were great too - very well done, excellent performance, lots of fun. I hope I don't have to wait another 4 years before they tour again......

I've been trying to catch up on various work & emails throughout the day - there is still so much to do. Thank you all for your patience!

I'm going to take a short computer break and try to get some actual painting done. I think I'll paint a minotaur....

You can peek in on my webcam HERE! I'll probably be starting the painting in 10-15 minutes or so.

Off I go.......

I soooo can't WAIT to get one of those statues!!! I'm kinda worried about getting one now, though. lol Wish you'd take preorders. Maybe just up to a certain number of them?

They are really pretty cool!

I thought about taking pre-orders, but it's so difficult trying to figure out how many have sold (with a limited quantity like that), and that sort of thing. It was easy with the books since I can always order more.

I don't think it will be too much of a problem - I doubt they'll sell out right away, not too quickly at least ;) I will post here in LiveJournal and also I'll send out my email update the second that they are available to order. In fact I might even put up an "alert" to my LJ friends a few hours ahead of time to let people know to get ready, hehe, so don't worry too much =)

I was always really sorry to miss the Bowie/Nin event here in the US ten years ago- it wouldn't have been so bad except when Bowie came to the UK that tour, he paired with that bloody windbag Morrisey.

And, talk about great minds and all that-have you been reading my thoughts or flicking through my sketchbook for ideas miss Jasmine?;)

Wow!!

Minotaurs have been popping up everywhere this month!! There was an 8ft sand sculpture of a minotaur at South Padre Island's "Sand Castle Days" that I took a photo of.

BTW, that's a very beautiful sketch. ^_^

It really was a great show, and it was nice to take an evening off of work.

I'm painting away right now - I should have it ready to post tonight!

Oh You went to a concert! Awesome, aren't they the most fun things you can do. I havent been for ages and ages, better check who is playing in the area.

Hehe, 2000 only?! Who said that number, how stupid, because I am sure there will be at least 5000 people who will want one desperetly.
Good luck with that, I hope you manage to make everyone happy!

Concerts are so much fun! Especially when it's a band I really feel strongly about. NIN is the band that brought me & Matt together - we met online chatting about them, hehe.

Well hopefully this one will do well, and they'll continue the series - there are a lot of my paintings I'd love to see turned into statues!

Glad to hear everything went well at the concert. Have you heard from anyone else in Canada yet that's gotten your book? I still haven't gotten mine. I'm starting to wonder if one of our neighbours stole it or if the mail lady is keeping it for herself lol. Oh well, guess I will have to try to be patient a little longer lol. I'm so bad at that. But I'm sure it will be well worth the wait in the end. :)

Thank you Mary!!

Actually I haven't heard from ANY Canadian customers having received their orders yet, so don't worry too much! I've heard from a bunch of the US customers, and a couple of them in the UK already (I think it's odd that folks in the UK have them across the ocean when our neighbors to the North don't have theirs yet, lol).

I'm sure it won't be too long!
