Hi everybody! Art news for today!
#1 My "Sirens of the Sea" Mermaid Collection is now in stock & shipping available WORLDWIDE! These gorgeous little mermaids are hand painted & cast in artists' resin, available NOW from the Bradford Exchange (in the US) as well as Burning Desires online for worldwide/International shipping! "Remarkable Rae" (with Sting Rays!), "Fanciful Finn" (Shark!), and "Ominous Octavia" (Octopus!). Details and photos are below in this update, as well as links & ordering info. I know so many of you have been asking for mermaids, and this new collection is in stock & ready to ship. Yay!
#2 This weekend I will be at MegaCon in Orlando - come see me! Starting at 1pm on Friday, March 15th- Sunday, March 17th at the Orange County Convention Center, I will be at MegaCon with a big twenty foot double booth - it is booth #714-716 - filled with artwork, statues, prints, new paintings, mini paintings, and possibly a few copies of my new book ;) MegaCon is always a ton of fun, lots of great art, comics, media guests (pretty much the entire cast of my favourite Star Trek: The Next Generation will be there - yay!), and of course fantastic shopping. For directions and details visit my MegaCon Event Page HERE and for details about the show in general, visit MegaCon's website HERE. Please note that I am NOT in the "artist alley", but in the main part of the room as an exhibitor. Same spot I always have, near the center of the room when you come in through the main doors!
#3 Live in the Midwest? This weekend Strangeling Art Emporium will be at Naka-Kon in Kansas City! I won't be at this one in person (because I will be at MegaCon here in Florida of course!), but Amber & Chris of Strangeling Art Emporium (formerly Magical_Figurines) will be at Naka-Kon! Another great convention with a special focus on Anime and Japanese culture. From Friday, March 15th- Sunday, March 17th at the Overland Park Convention Center in the Exhibit Hall, Strangeling Emporium will have a setup with my prints, jewelry, merchandise and more - if you are in the KC area, definitely stop by!.

In case you missed the big announcement - my new book is coming out, so we're having a party at Pop Gallery! This is the book we've been working on for quite awhile - my first widely distributed book with a large publisher - "Strangeling: The Art of Jasmine Becket-Griffith". Not only does it feature over a hundred pages of my full colour paintings, it also contains poetry and short stories about some of the characters I have created over the years. Hardcover, top quality, golden gilded pages - a gorgeous book indeed! The best part is that we are throwing a book release & author signing on April 13th at Pop Gallery at Downtown Disney at the Walt Disney World Resort here in Florida - and ALL THREE of us will be there - myself, and the authors Kachina Glenn and Amber Logan (my sisters). This means that you have the opportunity to get a book signed by all three of us - how cool is that? The book signing party will be a free event, books will be available for purchase, and we'll also have little postcard prints to give away too, so nobody goes home empty handed. 7pm-10pm - Saturday April 13th - details for the event are HERE on the Event Page. (If you can't make it, call Pop Gallery and you can order one of the books signed by us to be shipped to you! - (407)827-8200. Books will also be available on Amazon and from bookstores within the next month or so, worldwide).

This is a one-night only event at Pop Gallery at Downtown Disney! The release of my new book, "Strangeling: The Art of Jasmine Becket-Griffith". From 7pm-10pm at the gallery I will be there with my two sisters - Amber Logan and Kachina Glenn - the co-authors of the book who provided the poetry and short stories. This is your chance to get the new book signed by ALL THREE of us - a very rare and special thing indeed! Stop & say hi, also check out all of my artwork & merchandise at the gallery, enjoy the new book, grab a free signed postcard print, have some champagne!

*April 20th-21st* Celebration Spring Art Festival * Celebration, FL * Market Street, Downtown Celebration
Time for a "fine art" show (whatever that means!) The Celebration Spring Art Festival - for details, visit my Celebration Spring Art Festival Event Page HERE. I'll be there in person at my tent for both days (it's a daytime show until 5pm Saturday and Sunday). As per the art show's rules, this event will focus on original paintings, canvas prints, limited edition canvas prints, and one bin of signed paper prints. This is a great event because it is outdoors in my hometown of Celebration, a lovely place with great restaurants and bars, cute shops, nature trails, etc., all right across the highway from Disney. This is a juried fine art show and you will see many other artists in all mediums - ceramics, painting, sculpture, jewelry & more - a wonderful way to spend a spring day outdoors!
