Hi everybody! LOTS of art news for today!
#1 I'm going out of town this week! Just up to my secondary studio in Kansas City to visit family over Easter, and to start some work on the new gallery opening at the KC Renfest later this year. You can still place orders while I'm gone as we have a shipping center in KC, but there may be a few extra days' delay in my emails & shipping times as we may be on the road or visiting our folks.
#2 I have a new "Custom Painting" up for auction! . These are always SO much fun! An unfinished painting has been listed for auction, and the winning bidder will get to tell me how to finish painting her for them - choose the hair, eyecolour, skintone, theme, maybe some wings or jewelry, a tattoo or small pet - whatever we can fit in there - just for you! Click HERE for the auction on eBay, bidding starts at just one penny!
#3 SO many more of my Limited Edition Hand Embellished Canvases have been selling out lately, I know, it's crazy! I now have the final #25/25 "last chance ever" auctions up for "Strangely Lonely," "Angel of Starlight," and "Loup-Garou: Noir". Once these auctions end, no more of these Lt. Ed. canvases will ever ever ever be made. Click HERE for the #25 LAST Strangely Lonely on eBay. Click HERE for the #25 LAST Angel of Starlight on eBay. Click HERE for the #25 LAST Loup-Garou: Noir on eBay.
#4 The new "Fairy Mischief" tabletop card game featuring my artwork is now up for pre-order, with more options added! Now with some options for Canadian customers too! as well as a special "mom & pop" sales option for Retailers! (so if you yourself have a game store, a book store, fantasy shop, gallery, etc. definitely check those out too. The gaming company "Fun to 11" has created a magnificent new game called "Fairy Mischief" and has licensed my artwork for the project. It has turned out amazing! Their company uses Kickstarter to fund & set up the pre-order system, so in order to guarantee that you get your copy of the game you need to CLICK HERE to go to their project page. The page is up for the next 19 days and you'll need to pledge a $35 amount to pre-order your game. Just click the big green button at the top that says "Back this Project" and you can checkout through Amazon. $35 gets you the game (add $25 for international shipping if you live outside the US, please). The game will actually ship this autumn (great Christmas gift!). Aimed at girls ages 5-12 , and also fun for grownups to play along, each game set consists of TWO 42 card decks (with my fairies on them of course), set of sixty-two coloured gems in a deluxe pouch, two play mats, rules, all in one nifty box set. Definitely check out all of the photos, and the videos - of me in my studio, of the girls playing, details about the gameplay & the project, etc.
#5 Good news! Pop Gallery at Downtown Disney now has my book in stock! This means you can drop by Downtown Disney West Side at the Walt Disney World Resort and pick up your copy early! Then on April 13th (from 7-10pm) bring it to the gallery for my Book Signing Party (details are HERE ) so you can get it signed by me as well as Amber Logan and Kachina Glenn (my sisters, the other two authors of the book). Not local? You can also order by phone if you would like a copy shipped to you - in fact, if you ask them nicely, they can wait to ship your book until after Amber, Kachina & I sign it for you on the 13th. Just call them at (407)827-8200 and tell them you'd like Jasmine Becket-Griffith's new book (and tell them if you want it shipped as-is right away, or if you'd like them to wait & mail it after we sign it on the 13th!) . They can ship the book worldwide! (407)827-8200. Books will also be available on Amazon and from bookstores within the next month or two, worldwide).
Custom Painting Auction!
CUSTOM PAINTING - "Faces of Faery 209"
6"x6" Original Acrylic on Panel
Auction is up & running NOW - CLICK HERE for details, photos, or to place a bid!
It is a CUSTOM painting auction! The winning bidder will receive the painting in the photos, but first they will get to tell me the following:
**Haircolour/Style (I can make it shorter, curly, add bangs, whatever you'd like)
**Eye Colour, Makeup
**Skintone, Freckles, Tattoos
**Wings if you'd like me to fit some in (note the size & placement of the face on the panel, it'd be a hint of them or very small ones)
**Perhaps a small pet!
**I could potentially add a bit of ornamentation like paint in a butterfly or flowers in her hair, earrings, leaves, something along those lines. Please do keep in mind the size/shape limitations of the 6" image as shown, as it is a 6"x6" square panel.
***This is for the actual painting shown in the auction, NOT intended to be a specific portrait of anybody please (her facial features & shape are obviously already painted!) or anything like that. However you can most certainly tell me your eye/skin/hair colour or send me a photo of you or a loved one and I can paint the fairy in the picture shown with those elements!
After the auction ends, I will email you and YOU will tell ME how to finish her! Once she's done, I email an image for your approval, and if all is good I then mail you the actual original painting via insured post.
The auction is on eBay (free & easy to sign up if you're not a member yet!), and bidding has been set at just one penny. It is a 10-day auction ending the evening of April 5th. The auction is up & running NOW:

These are for the Hand Embellished Limited Edition canvases - the ones I actually go in myself and paint with acrylic details, etc. I only make 25 of each of these, and these are the last ones.
Things are going crazy here at home as far as canvas print selling goes, so there are also several other #25 Canvases that have been put up for auction earlier this week (and ending soon) - Belle of Bonaventure, Wicked Witch and Glinda, and Poe.
