Jasmine's at DragonCon! New Coloring Pages, New Paintings, Giveaway & more...

Updates from Jasmine!

Big update today!  Lots of exciting things happening and lots of new art!

Firstly - we are headed for DragonCon!  At the bottom of this update is a huge supplement all about DragonCon - if you are coming, be sure to read it all - loads of important info below and more details here.  I'm in the DragonCon Art Show, located on the lowest level of the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, Grand Hall West, same spot as always from September 1st-4th.  The same weekend, the Kansas City Renaissance Festival opens!  I can't be in both places at once, so my family will be running my shop at the KC Renfest while I am in DragonCon.  Right after DragonCon I am back in Florida- Saturday, September 9th 4-7pm at Disney Springs WonderGround Gallery inside the Marketplace Co-Op!  Details about the event are here and additional upcoming event details are here

Next up - in case anybody missed the announcement - starting after I'm back from DragonCon - we are going to start offering free coloring pages to my Patreon patrons - completely different than any pictures found in my coloring books, these will be all new, downloadable Patreon Exclusive Coloring pages - this new benefit will be added to all the other Patreon perks for patrons at the $5+ tier level.  Not a member? Get up there now and get in on the ground floor, click here for details.  This will help tide you all over while we wait for the Mermaids Coloring Book (again though, the Patreon Exclusive Coloring Pages will not be found in any coloring book - so don't worry about duplicates, these will be all new!)

Next - I have two new original paintings to show you!  The first one was the result of the free custom painting I gave away at Patreon a few weeks back - the winner went with a dark Alice in Wonderland/Caterpillar them - the original has sold but we have prints & canvases for sale here, she is "Faces of Faery 238"!  The second original painting is one that sold at my Insectarium show - her name is "Insectarium II:  Carnivorous Plants" - prints and canvases are available here.  To see any other original paintings that are actually still available to purchase (they tend to sell quickly!), click here.

Next - I am GIVING AWAY a new original painting up at Patreon!  A Tiny Treasure with a Dia de los Muertos theme!  Subscriptions at Patreon start at just $1, anybody signed up by next Wednesday the 6th will be entered automatically, just click here for details.

In other news - the SALE print of the week is my beautiful "Amongst the Koi" - if you love mermaids, big eyes & koi ponds you will love this one - on sale from only $9.99 worldwide here.

And finally - it's time for new ACEO cards and I have a grand total of ten brand new beauties up for auction here - some of these will be paintings you have never seen before!  I only make one single ACEO card for each painting I do, so they are truly one of a kind.  Trading card sized canvas prints, hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed & numbered #1 of 1, bidding always starts at a penny here. Please ignore the "Jasmine's out of town" warning as I will be back home before the auctions end and I can mail them with no delay!

"Faces of Faery 239"

Original Acrylic painting 6"x6" given away at Patreon * Prints available here

Prints now available from $13.99 here - we ship WORLDWIDE.

This was so much fun!  Several weeks back when we hit our first Patreon Goal, I picked a random Patreon patron to win their very own free custom painting!  The winner decided they wanted me to go with a dark Alice in Wonderland theme with a hookah smoking caterpillar and it turned out really neat!  The patron got to keep the original painting, but we have prints & canvases available.   When we hit our next Patreon goal I'll be giving away another CUSTOM original painting (very hard to get otherwise!) - sign up here.

All are at my website here
and on Amazon here
and on Etsy here
We also have them available in our eBay stores here

"Insectarium II:  Carnivorous Plants"

Original Acrylic painting 8"x10" $2400  SOLD Prints available here

Prints now available from $13.99 here - we ship WORLDWIDE.

The second of my Insectarium series, this beauty sold at the gallery show of the same name!  I love carnivorous plants (even though I'm a vegetarian, lol) - even though the original has sold we do have prints & canvases available!

Prints & limited edition canvases are at my website here
and on Amazon here
and on Etsy here
and in our eBay stores here

Coloring Pages are Coming!

Will be available through my Patreon for $5+ Members here

You asked for it, you got it!

Just for my Patreon patrons, we are adding a new perk.  Those of you in the $5+ tier will now get Patreon Exclusive Coloring Pages of my artwork, just for you guys!  These will be completely different pictures not found in any coloring books, we're doing them JUST for Patreon.

You can sign up for Patreon here, coloring pages are perks for $5+

First page coming out September 12 - it will be "Bumblebee Dragonling", then October 2nd we'll have "Milagros:  La Calavera."  This is not a new tier, it's just an added perk on top of all the other stuff the $5+ members already get!  If you are already $5+ you will automatically get to download the new coloring pages as they pop up.  If you are not yet, you can upgrade your pledge or if you are brand new just click the "Become a Patron" button on Patreon here.

The pages will be downloadable - we are definitely doing one new one each month (if this goes well we'll start doing them more often).  They are exclusive to Patreon members and their households, the downloadable image can be downloaded and printed as much as you like for yourself & your own household (but not re-distributed elsewhere without written permission).

You probably hear a lot of us talking about Patreon - it is a ton of fun and you get a lot of great perks & free stuff, behind-the-scenes info, advance previews, discounts, free original painting giveaways, there's a Patreon Pin Collector Club and more - check it out here.

New Original Painting Giveaway!

Original Painting giveaway is Wednesday September 6th here

Lol, as if you needed another reason to join us at Patreon - I'm giving away an original painting on Wednesday, September 6th at 8:00PM Eastern Time here!  I give away an original painting every single month at Patreon.

She's a 3x3" original acrylic painting on a wood panel, ready-to-hang - with a Dia de los Muertos theme!

All Patrons (of any pledge level, even $1) are automatically entered into my original painting giveaways, so if you are already a member you will be included automatically in the random number generator determined selection!  (As long as your account is valid - if it's been a while you might double check that your credit card & address info is up-to-date!).

If you're not a member, as long as you sign up here by Wednesday, September 6th at 8:00PM Eastern time you will be entered in the giveaway (and for all subsequent giveaways!).

New ACEO Cards!

Each is a tiny one of a kind hand embellished canvas print - see them here

These little beauties are ACEOs - "Art Cards, Editions & Originals"

The size of a standard trading card - 2.5x3.5" - a tiny canvas print hand accented by me in acrylic paints, signed and numbered #1/1 as I only make ONE of each painting.  Truly one of a kind, they are a great way to start an art collection with limited wallspace (you can even keep them in plastic sleeve trading card binders) or limited budget (bidding always starts at just one penny to give everybody a chance).

I have ten ACEO cards up for auction this week - you can see them all here!


My Event Page for DragonCon with tons of details and regular updates is here
We're on our way to DragonCon!

I will be at the Dragon*Con Art Show pretty much ALL DAY EVERY DAY (when not giving panels or interviews, etc.) from Friday, September 1st through Monday, September 4th In Atlanta, Georgia - the Dragon*Con Art Show is in the lowest level of the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. Grand Hall WEST - same as last year, and the 11 years before!

Friday September 1: 1:00PM-8:00PM (FREE NINJA PIN)
Saturday September 2: 10:00AM-8:00PM (FREE DICE FAIRY PIN)
Sunday September 3: 10:00AM-8:00PM (FREE BUMBLEBEE PIN)
Monday September 4: 10:00AM-4:00PM

I am in the FAR BACK LEFT HAND CORNER of Grand Hall WEST as always. Map is below.

Please note - for part of late Saturday afternoon/evening I have to go to a licensing meeting in downtown Atlanta. Matt will be at the booth though so you can still come buy stuff, but I might not be there for part of the afternoon to autograph. I'll be there the rest of the day though, and all the other days!

Location: Hyatt Regency Atlanta: 265 Peachtree Street NE, Atlanta, Georgia, USA 30303

I will be debuting at least three new original paintings, three new DragonCon Exclusive pins, other collectible enamel pins, limited edition canvas prints, open edition prints, mini prints, COLORING BOOKS, various other oracle decks & books and other assorted merchandise. Everything is for sale, or just come to look at the new art & say hi!  Jasmine will be there every day, all four days (with the occasional breaks for her panel, interviews, meal/bathroom breaks, etc.), in person and would be happy to sign stuff, chat, etc. as much as you'd like! DragonCon is one of the most amazing fantasy/scifi/media conventions in the world and is enormous - it's a ton of fun - definitely check out the website: http://www.dragoncon.org/ - it is well worth building a vacation around and the discounts & prices Jasmine offers at her shows will save you more than the cost of tickets =)

Now for the freebies:

Key Cards!

I am pleased to announce officially that I am a Guest this year at DragonCon and have created the artwork for all three host hotel key cards!   The Hyatt, the Marriott and the Hilton each have a new painting of mine on their keycards!  This means that as soon as you check in, you'll have a tiny painting of mine in your pocket =)  Images are "Bumblebee Dragonling," "Ninja Dragonlings," and "Dice Dragonlings" - I don't know yet which hotel will have which, I'll be surprised with the rest of you!  You can come and get your keycard signed - I'm doing a special programming panel at 5pm on Sunday in the Hyatt Grand Hall C programming room discussing the making of my DragonCon Key Cards and I'd be happy to autograph them for you for free!

*The first TWENTY PEOPLE to come to Jasmine's booth will get a free 2018 Strangeling calendar or weekly planner, signed by Jasmine!

*The first HUNDRED CUSTOMERS on each of the first three days - Friday, Saturday & Sunday will each receive a different free DragonCon Exclusive Strangeling pin (a different pin each day! Free with purchase, even a $3 postcard will get you a free pin!) Friday will be the "Fire Ninja Dragonling" pin, Saturday will be the "20 Sided Dice Fairy" pin, Sunday will be the "Bumblebee Dragonling" pin!

Also - we'll have Tiny Treasures!  Ittybitty original paintings.  First come, first served, we cannot reserve these.  They will be found on my table in my corner, I have ten of them.

I am doing TWO PROGRAMMING PANELS this year at DragonCon!

Both my panels are on Sunday, for some reason.

Title: How to Turn Your Passion into a Career: Commercial Avenues for Illustrators
Time: Sun 11:30 am Location: Grand Hall C - Hyatt (Length: 1 Hour)
Description: Award-winning guests share their experiences in concept art, book covers, illustrations, branding & licensing, and how they turned their dreams & passions into successful careers.  Myself, Don Maitz, Dan dos Santos, Todd Lockwood & more will be hosting.

Title: Jasmine Becket-Griffith: Creating the DragonCon Key Card Art & Autograph Session
Time: Sun 05:30 pm Location: Grand Hall C - Hyatt (Length: 1 Hour)
Description: Guest artist Jasmine Becket-Griffith created our 2017 Dragonling hotel key cards. Watch her presentation on the creation of these paintings, & she'll autograph your own Hyatt, Hilton, & Marriott key cards!

Website for Dragon*Con: http://www.dragoncon.org/
Website for Dragon*Con Art Show: http://artshow.dragoncon.org/index.html
Website for Hotel: http://atlantaregency.hyatt.com/hyatt/hotels/index.jsp

Again - please note that the Jasmine is in the actual ART SHOW itself - located on the lowest level of the Hyatt Regency Atlanta in the Grand Hall WEST. Again - the ART SHOW, not the dealer/exhibitors stuff, not the comic/pop artist alley, but the actual ART SHOW (I reiterate this because Dragon*Con is enormous and takes over a sizable chunk of downtown Atlanta over Labor Day weekend!).

*ATTENTION COLLECTORS OF ORIGINAL PAINTINGS: For this show, the original paintings are sold directly by Dragon*Con itself. This means that I cannot pre-sell or "reserve" original paintings at this show in any way. Dragon*Con is purely "first come, first served" when it comes to original paintings. They must be purchased in person, Dragon*Con does not ship.

If you are interested in purchasing the limited edition canvases or originals through the DragonCon Art Show - more info can be found by carefully reading the instructions on the Art Show Buyer page HERE (click on "Buyer Information" on the left hand side).

http://artshow.dragoncon.org/index.html (click on BUYER INFORMATION)

Just a head's up - many collectors may show up quite early and there is usually a line up in front of the art show hours before it opens. Don't worry too much - I will definitely bring lots & lots of art with me and there should be enough for everybody, but if there is a specific painting you have seen me show a work-in-progress pic of on Facebook, or if you collect a specific series, etc. you may want to arrive early to check on the status of the line, etc.

Jasmine's Patreon patrons may have the opportunity to see the original finished paintings before the show. Details about Patreon are here:http://www.patreon.com/jasminebecketgriffith

The show opens at 1:00pm to the public on Friday, but again - if you have any specific pieces in mind it is on a first-come first-served basis (since they are sold by Dragon*Con themselves I cannot reserve or pre-sell anything) and you may want to arrive that morning to get in line (and bring a book!).

Please respect other guests, do not run, do not trample, do not fight, we have lots of stuff - you don't need to knock people out of the way.  DragonCon security is tight and the Fire Marshal is on hand for crowd control if things get too busy.  Let's keep DragonCon a happy place that invites me back year after year!

Questions - email me at JasmineToad@aol.com (don't just reply to the mailing list update, it won't get to me, you gotta make a new email to JasmineToad@aol.com).
