"Unseelie Court:  Lust"
16x20" Original Acrylic Painting $6600 SOLD
Prints from $9.99 on sale at Strangeling.com this week HERE

The second of my "Seven Deadly Sins" collection of my "Unseelie Court" series - "Lust!" My Unseelie Court series focuses on the darker aspects of the faerie world, combined with historic and art-history references. The first collection in the series featured the Apocalypse themes (Famine, War, Pestilence, Death) and this new collection features each of the Seven Deadly Sins. "Lust" explores the sin of, well, lustfulness. All of my Unseelie Court pieces feature Art History themes, and this one does as well - a lot of imagery in this (historical allegorical references include Collier, Manet, Van Dyck, Fragonard, Girodet & more - have fun spotting them!). The diagram/symbol on her dress is that of Asmodel, spirit of Lust, the Asian kanji tattoo on her arm is again, that for lust. What looks like the mosaic/censored/pixellated part in the middle is NOT actually at all - it's handpainted tiny little squares I did myself to emulate the look of censorship - it is not edited, that's what my painting actually looks like (that was hard to do with acrylic paints, hehe!). Even though this is not the largest painting I've done, it's certainly the one I have spent the most hours painting on.

PS - despite all the flesh shown in this painting, there is no actual "nudity" in the "naughty bits" sense of the word, so there is nothing in violation of any websites' or social media sites' guidelines. It's a PG rating at best. Be sure to check out the others in the Unseelie Court series and keep an eye out for more to come!

We have 8x10 prints (signed on the back) for $9.99 on sale this week, 12x16 prints (signed on back) for $19.99, open edition 12x16 canvas prints are only $90 this week too! The Masterpiece Limited Edition Canvas prints are $595, only five made, we are pretty much all SOLD OUT on these already though, but we have the #1 in the edition up for auction.

All available prints are here - use the dropdown box under Fine Art Print options to choose which type you'd like here

The #1 canvas (the only one I have left, as of now) is up here for auction, 16x20, hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, numbered #1 of 5 here

Also up on Etsy (seller ID strangeling) here

and eBay (seller ID: strangelingemporium and also seller ID: strangeling) here

Stay tuned for more! Some of the ones I'll be painting soon will be at my July 16 show at the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles =)

Be sure also to see the others in the Unseelie Court series here

New Figurines!

New statues are on the way! Here are "Clockwork Dragonling" "Absinthe Butterflies"  "Loup-Garou: La Grande Pretresse" (with the wolf) and "Strangely Lonely" (with the gravestone) - order now WORLDWIDE here (worldwide means they ship to all countries in the world).

Limited Editions meticulously made by Nemesis Now, a wonderful UK company, these are absolutely beautiful, insanely detailed, very high quality, ranging between 12.5cm - 16.5 cm tall. They are only sold pretty much in the UK so you'll need to order from the StrangelingUK website (run by my friend Paul in Wales of The Flaming Pixies). If you have questions about ordering or shipping or prices or costs or stuff like that (hint, as of this morning 1 GBP UK = $1.42 US, your credit card or bank will convert it for you when you purchase) - please contact Paul directly at gothlings@strangelinguk.com - they'll be in stock NEXT WEEK - yay!!!

We'll have these in March in person at the Avalon Faery Fayre in Glastonbury, England (March 12-13th at the Town Hall - details are here) - it's a free event, stop by & say hi, I'd be happy to autograph one for you there!  And also I'll be there & have the statues this autumn in Whibty, England at the Whitby Goth Weekend - November 4, 5, & 6th =)

Original Painting GIVEAWAY
All my Patreon patrons are entered automatically. Join HERE.

I'm giving away a new ORIGINAL PAINTING on Patreon here - worldwide, international patrons are welcome!  One Patreon supporter will be selected randomly on or around February 15th.   As I will actually be away in Africa at that time and may not have internet access, it may end up being posted on the 16th or even 17th, but approximately around that time.  I went with an Egyptian theme, as I'll be visiting Afridca =)

 It is open to all levels of Patreon subscribers, worldwide, even just the $1 level.   All you need to do to enter is to be signed up at my Patreon by 8pm on February 15th. Every week or two I do giveaways, figurine giveaways, coloring books, prints, rare items, and once per month an original painting.

This month the new painting is the Tiny Treasure shown above!  She is an original acrylic painting on wood, 3x3" in size, a hanger on the back - ready to hang on your wall - sides are cradled wood & painted glossy black.  Nope, not for sale - I'm giving her away!

Only Patreon supporters will be included in the giveaway.  If you are not yet a member, just click this link and hit the"Become a Patron" to sign up, from only $1/month to subscribe and you always get entered in all the giveaways =) There are other great rewards at other tiers too, advance previews of paintings & shows, first looks at works-in-progress, discounts, pre-order opportunities for limited editions & more.

Speaking of Patreon - those of you who have selected the $5+ will get to see some of the "behind the scenes" photos from my trip to Africa!  I'll be visiting many countries, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, & Zimbabwe and will be sharing personal photos through Patreon.

New ACEO Cards!
Click HERE to see them all

For each painting I do, I create a one of a kind "ACEO" Card.  Collectible tiny pieces of art (ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals), they are miniature canvas prints measuring 2.5x3.5" - the size of a baseball card or Pokemon card.  Since I only make one card for each painting, they are each numbered #1 of 1.  I hand embellish each one in acrylic paints, they are signed, dated and the authentification information is hand written by me on the back.  Lots of people keep these in binders to collect them, some folks do beautiful jobs framing them - they are a great way to start a collection or to add to a collection once you've run out of wallspace!

My new batch of ACEO cards are up for auction here for ending on Thursday evening at 7pm EST, with bidding starting at just one penny.  Enjoy!

Coloring Books in stock - again!

The "Jasmine Becket-Griffith Coloring Book" is in stock up at Amazon here (and at Barnes & Noble, various international Amazon sites & more) and shipping out NOW.

Several weeks earlier than the official Feb 8 release date, the publishers were able to send these to the shops sooner than expected!

And the reviews are rolling in!  Seems like everybody is loving the coloring book as much as I am.  Thank you all so much!  If you have already received yours, please let us know how you are enjoying it up at Amazon here - you can even post pics of pictures you have colored to show off!

One helpful reviewer at Amazon has posted a thorough video showing the book & all pages in detail - click here to see the video.

And yes, it is in stock at Amazon in the USA right now here and if you have Amazon Prime it is currently only $11.97 + FREE SHPPING for prime members (wow).

As the boxes of books are arriving throughout the globe, you can order them now no matter where you live!

The best deal currently for international customers is Book Depository here - they offer FREE worldwide shipping, anywhere on the planet.

Amazon Canada has them here

Amazon UK is currently out of stock but getting more in soon.  (Or try Book Depository instead, they ship to the UK for free here!)

Other international Amazons may have them too - just search:  Jasmine Becket-Griffith Coloring Book

Australians are in particular luck, as the books is published from and originates from Australia!  Many AU stores already have them, including the wonderful Tarotopia here, and direct from the publishers here.

Again, the official release date was February 8 but most shops are already shipping them out now, so grab yours asap!

The paper quality on these is EXCELLENT.  Thick, creamy ivory - works great with copic markers, colored pencils, crayons, and even watermedia (we kept the pages single-sided so you won't ruin anything on the back) - you can cut out the pages, each one is bordered.  55 images in all, a large thick very well-crafted book.  Can you tell I'm proud of it?

Just wanted to let you all know that they're now widely available!  Soon they'll be popping up in regular brick & mortar bookstores too, around the world.  Those of you in the Disney area will be happy to hear that Pop Gallery at Disney Springs has gotten theirs in stock again too.

And those of you who ordered autographed copies from Strangeling.com - those are all shipping now (maybe already arriving!) as well!
