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:
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!

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!
