Got some wonderful news on the Collectibles front to share with you today, as well as some info about my art show at MegaCon next weekend! A brand new series of statues from the Hamilton Collection inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven", and some beautiful fairy/dragon holiday ornaments (a set of three!) from the Bradford Exchange. Absolutely lovely!
Okay! You may notice I don't have a new original painting for you today (nor for the past couple of days). The reason being - I am saving my current pieces to "debut" at MegaCon next weekend. So those of you coming to see me at the show will be the first ones to see these! (And for those not able to come, don't worry - I'll be showing them to you as soon as I'm back). In the meantime, I do have severa lovely original paintings up on eBay at great prices....to see ALL of my currently available original paintings, including some ending very soon, click below:

Next - MegaCon! I will be at MegaCon next weekend. It is here in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center. I will be right in the middle of it all in a huge 20' double booth. I'll have never-seen original paintings, stretched canvas prints all ready to hang, prints of all sizes (starting at just $3), new jewelry, statues, figurines, books, other merchandise - a TON of stuff. I'll be there all day, every day, (in fact, I'll undoubtedly be painting - I'll bring my paints & brushes) - come say hi! I'm happy to chat, pose for pictures, give hugs, sign autographs, all that fun stuff. MegaCon is March 12th, 13th and 14th (next Friday, Saturday & Sunday) and the hours are Friday - 1pm to 7pm, Saturday - 10am to 6pm, Sunday - 10am to 5pm. I'll be there the whole time - my booth is #812 - can't miss it!. For more information, directions, etc. visit MegaCon's website below. Any questions? Just email me and ask!
Next up - my new series of statues from the Hamilton Collection - all inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven"!!! This is truly a sneak peek - they're not officially up online or anything yet, so you are the among the first to see this. I have a nearly completed "in progress" photo of the beautiful statue first in the series - she is called "Once Upon a Midnight Dreary" (almost done being painted) - here she is:
The photo is still of the work-in-progress - still needs some things tweaked, painted, etc. - but she's almost finished! And yes - you can pre-order her! The statues are already scheduled for production and will actually will ship in June or July, but you can get your order in NOW and you might want to, since this is a LIMITED EDITION.. These aren't online yet since this is a secret sneak peek, you'll have to order by phone - just call:
the "Product Number" is 09-03892-001
and ask for Jasmine Becket-Griffith's "Once Upon A Midnight Dreary" statue from the new The Raven collection, and that will reserve your statue - you don't have to pay until it ships this summer! (Only $19.99, I believe).
The finished statues will also have the first stanza of the poem "The Raven" written on the scroll she is holding (and subsequent issues in the series will have the next stanzas)!! She is 4" high. Handcrafted details, the parchment the fairy holds is actually made of paper, and her arched feathery wings and expressive eyes make a dramatic statement. Her raven, Nevermore, has gleaming faux gem eyes that follow wherever you go. And this first issue, “Once Upon a Midnight Dreary,” comes with a collector card printed with “The Raven” so you can easily follow the eerie tale of the poem as it unfolds with each carefully crafted figurine. Issue two will be“Darkness There, And Nothing More.” Our dark angel has just discovered there is no one actually tapping at the door and so sits pensively with Nevermore. Issue three, “The Whispered Word, ‘Lenore’” is a striking figurine of a black-winged fairy leaning against an open gothic arch etched with the word “Lenore.” (these will follow in separate issues after the first one pictured, "Once Upon a Midnight Dreary". And again - she's not officially out in public yet, but you can pre-order her! The statues actually will ship in June or July, but you can get your order in NOW and you might want to, since this is a limited edition and this series in particular is getting a lot of attention already, so I wanted to let you guys know about her first so you can get in on it. Call 1-877-268-6638 tollfree, the "Product Number" is 09-03892-001, ask for Jasmine Becket-Griffith's "Once Upon A Midnight Dreary" statue from the new The Raven collection, and that will reserve your statue. Even though we're still working on the finishing details - those of you who are in the know (ie, read this!) can reserve yours early!
Next up - this time from the Bradford Exchage - I'm also very excited about these - a set of THREE hanging ornaments called "We Wish You A Fairy Christmas! "! Yes, lol - it is early for Christmas, but since these are in the pre-order stage one would be wise to get your reservation in EARLY on these, to make sure you receive them in plenty of time to decorate for the holidays. These would also make for phenomenal gifts. (Pssst - they don't charge you either until they actually ship!). This is unlike anything I've offered before because you get ALL THREE ORNAMENTS at once - for only $29.99. That works out to be less than $10 a fairy! Each one is a winter/holiday themed fairy with a baby dragon! Yes, dragonling ornaments! They hang up nicely - obviously great on Christmas trees but would be good for hanging in other fun places as well. Again - the first issue consists of ALL THREE ORNAMENTS together! A darling blue ice/snowflake fairy called "Never Blue with You" holding a golden dragon, an adorable Christmassy fairy with a Santa hat, dragon on her shoulder and a glass of milk with chocolate chip cookies called "One for You, Me, and Santa" (the dragon wants a cookie, hehe), and also "Best Friends" featuring my Ruby Dragonling character in her holiday attire - mistletoe and candy in her hair, with a tiny Santa Claus hat on the baby dragon! You will love these - all three come together for just $29.99 - you can order them online on the website & see them here:

and again - since it's not clear on the site - the first issue consists of ALL THREE shown, you get them together for the $29.99 price, not $29.99 each, hehe. You can also order by calling:
TOLL-FREE 1-877-268-6638 and ask for Jasmine Becket-Griffith's "We Wish You A Fairy Christmas Ornaments" - item #902212
