Howdy! [Oct. 21st, 2006|10:53 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Ah, it's been several days now since we got back from vacation - I've been in mega-painting-mode too. Finished up a commission, starting on another commission, and working on two other paintings at the same time.

Right now I'm working on neat new painting of a goth-y little fairy with a bunch of creepy vines around her - it is turning out very cool - you can watch me HERE ON MY WEBCAM while I paint!

If I finish the painting today we might sneak out and go see a movie. I'd like to see "The Prestige" especially. I'd also like to see "Marie Antoinette" (I feel like I should, since I've read about her so much and am even working on another painting inspired by her). And I also want to see the 3-D release of "Nightmare Before Christmas" (I love that movie).

But I have a lot of painting to do, so I'm not sure yet if I will get to escape or not.

I've been getting a lot of display materials ready for the Sarasota Medieval Fair. I bought three more sets of Pro-Panels, and a couple of 6' spinning racks for print display. I already have a lot of display stuff, but this will be a 20 foot by 20 foot tent to fill up, so I will need a lot!

I'd better go paint. Off I go.......

Dark Ribbon Fairy

Hey Jasmine my name's Vicki, I am 20 years old and a few months ago i got a lower back tattoo of your painting Dark Ribbon Fairy...I haven't been able to post a pic yet cuz my digital camera is being funny...but i will asap!
Anyways i was just wondering if you were maybe going to do a painting of a Capricorn Fairy, because i dont think i saw one on your site....I LOVE your work and check out your site all the time to see whats new.
Keep it up you're awesome!!
E-mail me back if you ever have some time....

Re: Dark Ribbon Fairy

Awesome! I'd love to see the tattoo! I could put it up on my tattoo page here:


Don't worry, I will do all of them eventually. I am going in astrological order - started with Aries and the last one I finished was Sagittarius. That means that Capricorn is next, then Aquarius, and then Pisces, and then I'm done =)

I want to see the 3-D NBX movie also! Is it playing in your area? I saw an ad for it on tv the other night. I thought the ad said it was coming out yesterday and we made plans to go see it. However, when I checked Fridays paper, none of the cinemas in my area were showing it?

just found your site while surfing for little red riding hood costume ideas (well, it is nearly hallowe`en!!) what a fab gallery :) you`ve solved a few birthday pressie dilemas. my girlfriend will love your stuff, and i can drop hints for myself too!! and i`m glad to hear you have a weakness for BBC comedy... the new stuff we`re bringing out`s pretty rubbish, but keep watching the oldies ;)

take care, Suz, Scotland xx

I saw it last night! I really liked it - well done, and heck - it was worth it for the costumes and sets alone!
