New FROG KING painting, Hot Topic, etc. [Mar. 12th, 2007|09:05 pm]

[music |"The Bones in the Ground" by Robyn Hitchcock]

Of course, you all know my love for Amphibians (hence my name, JasmineToad of course) - I have a new painting in honour of them.....click below to see:

"Magnificent Frog King" ORIGINAL PAINTING



Isn't he awesome? Love the little blonde cuties he has too, lol.

Also, Hot Topic now has a new sticker of mine - based on my "Fairy Voodoo" painting - click below to see it:

"Fairy Voodoo" new STICKER at Hot Topic



This past Saturday we went to the Plant City Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida! Wow, there were a lot of strawberries, lol. I love strawberries. I got a big bowl of them. Also I had vegetarian gyros sandwiches, and a bunch of candy (like saltwater taffy, old fashioned stuff). We had a lot of fun. Lots of carnival rides, plant shows, country-fair type stuff. Beautiful weather, too.

Last night, we went and saw Frank Miller's "300" movie! It was awesome! Go see it!

I am SO excited for the new Nine Inch Nails album, "Year Zero", coming out this week. I am in awe - two NIN albums in the space of a year. That is crazy! I'm used to having to wait years in between albums. Go Trent!

Matt's getting some sandwiches, so I'd better go finish up this stack of canvas prints that need to be signed & stuff.

Enjoy the new art!

Your new art is great.

You are going to France, how I envy!! I want to go. Have a great time in France. Are you going alone or is Mat going with you?

I agree with you, wow that Nine Inch Nails new album is coming out. I now years ago he said in an interview that he wasn't going to make any more albums, but I am glad he changed his mine. On one of the Hd channels I have they will be airing a Nine Inch Nail concert, not sure which one.

Hehe, the Strawberry Festival was fun - much like a "state fair" kinda thing. Lots of good food!

Your Art!!!

I know you must get sick and tired of these kinds of posts but I cannot help myself. I have never seen art that I fell in love with like yours. I am absolutely stunned, I have sat here at the computer half the day looking at you work. I have not accomplished anything else today, I have just sat here and immersed myself in your world! What a wonderful place to be! I am just in awe at what you have done. You are incredible. You have replaced Amy Brown as my new addiction! All I have to do now is figure out how I am going to pay for all the incredible things that I want! I cannot decide, I want them all. Your talent has stunned me!
Thank you so much for what you have done. You are truly magic!
You will be hearing from me as I want to have your artwork in my store. I have Crones Cottage here in Bluffton and I know my customers will feel just like I do about your work! Amazing!!
Thank goodness we do have a Hot Topic not far from here in Fort Wayne! may I should go look at what they have!

Cool new painting & that sticker at Hot Topic is SUPER COOL!
WOW! Sounds like you guys are getting out and about lately! Good for you! You have to enjoy some downtime as well as all that painting you do!
PS...I don't know if I said it already but that was SUCH a cool thing you did by surprising Matt for your guys's anniversary!! I'm TOTALLY going to do something like that to Paul some day! That's a HOOT!

It was so much fun surprising Matt - he really didn't ever have a clue. It was way too much fun!

"Go Trent!"

for real! i remember after i got the NIN on the back of my head i had to wait forever.... it was after (Halo 8), when i was 15... i've heard a few tracks off of my fiancé's P2P for macs and i can't wait to buy it...
anyway, this is my first comment and it's honestly also my first time figuring out how... i love your art and just caught that you do tattoos, is that what your post meant? or just that your art is available in flash form for tattoos? anyway, much props for your 'stranglings', especially fond of the hot pink and black one.... *smile* ~peace

Re: "Go Trent!"

I'm so excited about the album! I've listened to the tracks up at Trent's MySpace page, great stuff so far.

I don't do tattoos myself, I just do the paintings =) I did consider that as a profession for awhile though before I got caught up doing my art thing. Yep - a lot of it is available as flash now, so that makes it easier for more folks to get tattoos inspired by my work.

Re: "Go Trent!"

you are great at what you do, that's for sure... and i am sure you have all the reassurance in the world by now to know this for yourself, i remember the first time i saw your pink sticker in hot topic and i told the guy behind the counter, wow, i have been checking out her art for a while and it's cool that i can afford a piece of it now, i think he was a bit confused, but hey.... i was impressed that an artist that i had stumbled upon almost a year ago (you), was much bigger than i thought... i am sure you can imagine that type of feeling, you have probably met quite a few artists being one yourself and all... love your stuff, hun, when i get rich and famous, i will pay the pretty penny all the other rich and famous are paying for your stuff, promise! ~peace

(sorry for any spelling errors, i manage to spell so bad that even spell check doesn't catch all my mess~ *evil grin*)
