New art, 3-D Moving Pictures, & Mega-Con! [Feb. 19th, 2007|03:37 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Whew! What a weekend! I am so drained, but I had so much fun.....

First off, thank you for all of you who came to see me at Mega-Con this past weekend! It was great to meet so many of you - so many people from MySpace, from eBay, from LiveJournal, from my mailing list, website, lurkers, Dragon*Con, longtime fans, all of you - it was so cool to see you all "in person"! We had a very successful show and a lot of fun, I will definitely be back next year!

Now - I have a couple of never before seen pictures for you (canvas prints & open editions), and some great new products - 3-D moving pictures!

Yep - 3-D "moving" pictures. These are waaaaay cool. These Limited Edition Prints being made by Grim Fairy Galleries - they are lenticular, meaning that as you move your head at different angles while looking at the pictures, they appear to move, change, and have a sense of depth and 3-dimensions to them - it is like looking "inside" the picture. I don't make these myself, they are licensed by the 3-d company and are sold on their website - but I have seen them in person and they are VERY cool. There are only 250 made of each picture, so grab one while you can:

JASMINE'S NEW 3-D MOVING PICTURES at Grim Fairy Galleries



They have three images so far. Click on the pictures for ordering information and to see the simulation of how they "move"! They are very cool - for example in "Alice and the Cheshire Cat" - it looks like the Cheshire Cat "disappears" as you move your head, leaving only his grin..... They are 11"x14" and very reasonably priced at $64.99. They are on sturdy board, ready to frame.

Next up - my new pictures! I brought a couple of brand new original paintings to Mega-Con - and they both sold early the first day! (Reminder to self, next year bring more originals!) So since many of you were unable to come to the show to see them, I thought I'd put the canvas prints & open edition prints in my eBay store asap. Normally I'd auction off the 1st of the editions and put the smaller prints on sale, but Matt & I are leaving for vacation on the February 25th-March 4th for our 10th Anniversary, and I didn't want the auctions to end while we're out of town, so they're in my store for now. They are both very beautiful pieces - you can see them all below - they will be brand new to you folks who weren't at Mega-Con:

BRAND NEW "Silver Wolf" Hand Embellished 11"x14"Lt. Ed. CANVAS Prints (Limited to only 25)



&

BRAND NEW "Hints of Gold" Hand Embellished 8"x10" Lt. Ed. CANVAS Prints (Limited to only 25)



I also have these same two paintings available now as open edition glossy prints in my eBay store:

"Silver Wolf" 8x10 open edition print

"Silver Wolf" 12x16 open edition print

"Hints of Gold" 8x10 open edition print

I will be working on several new originals before we leave on our trip, so be on the lookout!

Yep, it's our 10th anniversary so I've planned a little vacation for me & Matt, we need a break after Mega-Con. It's really neat - I have told Matty when we are going, but not where we are going. He won't even know if we're going by car, plane, boat, train, etc. So I haven't told anybody yet, and have used a different email address to make online reservations, etc. Top Secret ;)

So we'll be gone from February 25th - March 4th. During that time I'll probably put my eBay store on pause, but my website & eBay auctions will run as usual (shipping & emails will resume upon our return). That's not for a while yet, I just thought I'd give you all a head's up if you wanted to place orders, send payment, etc. before we leave =)

All righty - I have a million things I need to catch up on from Mega-Con - thank you again everybody, and enjoy the new pictures!!!!!

Congrats on so many fronts! 10 years! Woohoo!! So this is the tin anniversary? My guess is you're going to visit the tin mines in Cornwall? No?! Malaysia? Haha! Wherever it is, have fun!!

The 3D pictures are lovely! I adore how the Cheshire disappears down to it's grin!

And Silver Wolf is gorgeous! She appears to carry a beautiful burden in those eyes!

Well, it looks like you just need to get ready for how many more shows this year? I heard a hint at FaerieCon, so there's at least one big one! You should take tons of originals to that!!!! I think that will be HUGE!!!

XOXO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Misty! 10 years, I can't believe it. Hehe - I can't divulge where we're going, because Matty will read this ;) It's way too fun surprising him like this.

This year I know I'll do Dragon*Con and then Faerie*Con, and then the Sarasota Medieval Fair, and probably some others as they pop up.... they are kinda stressful, but they are so much fun. I have met so many people I've known online from eBay, LiveJournal, my mailing list, Elfwood, MySpace, etc. it is crazy.

Lol - yeah - I get the feeling that I'm going to be hoarding a lot of originals this summer/fall......

It was very cool to meet you. I was almost too shy to say hello, but my husband managed to talk me into it! And I was suprised by how much better all of your prints look in person than on a computer monitor. Your booth was just stunning.

Aaaah! It was great to meet you! I'm so glad you came over, lol. We (Matt & I) actually talk about you a lot, hehe - your name comes up a lot when we're talking pirates (Ann Bonny, Mary Read....). Thank you so much Jenny =)

That would be neat on a puzzle. Yeah - I think a lot of pictures would be more difficult - watercolours, drawings, etc. They picked some good ones with mine that have the simplfied backgrounds (the "misty trees" type of thing, it gives a good sense of depth) with a detailed character in the front.

I met a lot of LJers, and also a lot of folks I knew from DeviantArt, Elfwood, eBay, etc. Very fun!

I love how you draw dogs and wolves, they look really beautiful, a bit realistic but also the necessary cartoon-ish/fantasy elements. I love it. I wish I could have you paint a picture of mytwo dogs oneday.

Thank you Lindy! I enjoy painting animals a lot - I think it's the fur, I like getting lost painting those hairs with my little brushes.

Hi there!

Hi Jasmine,
Just wanted to let you know I recieved one of your prints today from a friend for my birthday also a t-shirt with one of your faeries on it. And I absolutely love them! I'm a hobby artist myself, I've been drawing for years, just took art classes in jr high and High school dont have a degree in art. Just do it for fun. I got one of your graphics off your site so I could have something to look at and draw. I drew one of your faeries I'm going to color it all in with colored pencil, and was wondering if it'd be ok if I sent you one? Thanks! Sara

Re: Hi there!

Hi Sara! Thank you so much for stopping by =)

Sure thing, as long as it is just for yourself (not to be published, put online, sold, lol, etc.) that is fine by me - I hope you have fun!

Re: Hi there!

Hi Jasmine. No WAY would I ever profit off another artists work. I just hadn't ever drawn faeries or dragons before so I used some of yours as a how to basically. And since I've gotten alot of kewl ideas of my own. I'll send ya one soon so you can tell me what you think! I LOVE your stuff!! Can't wait to have a great collection going soon. If I don't talk to you before have a kick ass vacation girlie! <3

I'm so sad that I wasn't able to make it out to see you and Matt. Stupid back. =(

I missed you both. I also miss not buying your cool creations. I totally need to make up for it.

I heard you met my friends though. =) (Poor thing, I hope they didn't scare you. They tend to do that sometimes.)

*Hugs tight*
