Updates from Jasmine!

April has been a very exciting month for me - loads of fun stuff has been happening, and lots of painting!

Firstly - I've begun broadcasting live from my studio a couple times a week on TWITCH here!  You can catch up on our episodes so far here , and my next live broadcast will be this Sunday, April 29 at 3PM Eastern Time (8:00PM UK time)It's free!  They have made me an official "Affiliate" now too, so if you click "Subscribe" you can subscribe to the "Twitch Prime" ad-free version and Twitch throws me a couple bucks ;)  If you are an Amazon Prime member you can subscribe for free to Twitch Prime (Twitch is owned by Amazon and Amazon gives you one free Twitch sub!). Again though, regular Twitch is free as always, Prime just gives ya some extra perks and helps me cover a bit of the operating costs.

This month I've been working mostly on original paintings that will debut at my "Magical Thinking" solo show at the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angles - I'll be there in person for the opening this July 28 and the show will hang for a month - we'll be having a huge opening party that night and everybody is welcome - details here.  You can watch me paint all of the paintings for the show on my Twitch videos here , with finished previews shown up at my Patreon.

My "Forever Strange" art book is being published later this year and is available to pre-order.  This is a glorious sequel to my "Strangeling" art book - hardcover 198 full colour pages, gilded edges, full of my paintings and complemented by poetry & short stories written by my sisters Amber and Kachina and a short story by my husband Matt.   USA Customers can order cheaply from Amazon here .  It will be available WORLDWIDE at all other bookstores & online bookshops, it just hasn't popped up yet.  If you check out the publisher's website here you can see a preview of the book and they will be accepting pre-orders soon internationally, I will keep you updated.  We'll eventually have autographed copies later this year at Strangeling.com after the book comes out and I can buy some for myself to autograph, lol, and also later this year at Pop Gallery at Disney Springs here in Florida and will have the books in stock for me to autograph there too!

We have new coloring pages including GRAYSCALE coloring pages up at my Patreon!  These are all exclusive to my Patreon, not found in my coloring boosk, so they are completely different.  And yes - we have 14 grayscale designs (for those who prefer grayscale coloring pages already shaded) as well as 14 traditional lineart designs.  All for the $5 pledge here (if you are already a part of our coloring tier at Patreon you can see all the coloring pages, old & new and lineart & grayscale all here).  Basically whenever we release a lineart we'll release a grayscale so everybody is happy, hehe =)


Whew! - and that's it!  Now scroll down to see it all, and I hope to see some of you guys this Sunday (or hear from you, as you'll be the ones seeing ME) up at Twitch =)

Jasmine is now on Twitch!

Next Official Broadcast Sunday April 29 at 3PM EST HERE

My next Twitch paintcam broadcast goes live this Sunday at 3PM Eastern Time (8PM UK time)here: https://www.twitch.tv/jasminebecketgriffith/    - please join me!  Twitch is free and everybody is welcome.  My username is: JasmineBecketGriffith   (easy to remember!)

I'll be painting live & chatting all evening.  We've had a ton of episodes so far this month (usually twice a week) - and you can see those previous episodes (usually 5-6 hours each) if you'd like to catch up  - watch the archived video here! It's a great way to see what paintings I'm working on for my Magical Thinking show ;)

They have made me an official "Affiliate" now too, so if you click "Subscribe" you can subscribe to the "Twitch Prime" ad-free version and Twitch throws me a couple bucks ;)

  Every little bit helps us stay on the air!  Also they have special emojis/emoticons for Twitch Prime I've made of my characters that subscribers can use, etc. too.  If you are an Amazon Prime member you can subscribe for free (Twitch is owned by Amazon and Amazon gives you one free Twitch sub!).   So if you'd like to help out and get a free subscription, login at my Twitch channel here using the same email address you use for Amazon Prime, and click the "Subscribe" button on my page and you'll see the "Subscribe for free" button and voila! =)  Alternately if you aren't an Amazon Prime member you can also subscribe to Prime for $4.99 - either way works fine, and again - the basic service is always free =)

Matt moderates our chat room, and you can ask any questions you'd like - I'm treating it as a combination painting tutorial & socializing time, so we focus on art but end up talking about just about everything.  When you are watching a live broadcast you can type in your questions, Matt reads them to me, and I'll answer ya!  Or you can just lurk and watch without talking or asking questions.  We've also started having free giveaways (open to everybody) each broadcast too....

See you on Sunday!!!  I'll be starting at 3:00PM Eastern Time (8:00PM UK Time) and will probably paint for about five hours.  You can also click "follow" on my page and it will send you an alert for free when I go live if you aren't able to officially subscribe ;)

"Forever Strange" book

Pre-order on Amazon here (US) and Blue Angel here (worldwide preorder will pop up soon)

My "Forever Strange" art book is being published later this year and is available to pre-order.  This is a glorious sequel to my "Strangeling" art book - hardcover 198 full colour pages, gilded edges, full of my paintings and complemented by poetry & short stories written by my sisters Amber and Kachina and a short story by my husband Matt.   USA Customers can order cheaply from Amazon here .

It will be available WORLDWIDE at all other bookstores & online bookshops, it just hasn't popped up yet.  If you check out the publisher's website here you can see a preview of the book and they will be accepting pre-orders soon internationally, I will keep you updated.  We'll eventually have autographed copies later this year at Strangeling.com after the book comes out and I can buy some for myself to autograph, lol, and also later this year at Pop Gallery at Disney Springs here in Florida and will have the books in stock for me to autograph there too!

As it's published originally in Australia, they tend to get their stock in earlier there (supposedly June/July) and the US/EU/UK rest of the planet will get it later this summer or early autumn.  Again, you can pre-order now in the US at Amazon here and the books and later on the books will be at bookstores worldwide, Book Depository, Books a Million, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, all the usual suspects, ANYWHERE in the world.

New Coloring Pages!

Patreon Exclusives - now also grayscale options!
Join Patreon here (already a Patron? Click here)


I've got a ton of new Patreon-Only Coloring Pages available to download including a bonus "Spring" coloring page just released!

In ADDITION to the traditional lineart formats we also now have GRAYSCALE TOO for each of my Patreon Coloring pages.  Only $5 gets you ALL the pages to download as much as you want, past and present, and you can always just join for one month if you want and download them all, lol (I recommend sticking around though, 'cos Patreon is awesome).

If you're already a 5+ Patreon Patron you can see ALL 14 (28 total, including Grayscale) Exclusive Coloring Pages here

If you haven't signed up yet - just click the "Become a Patron" orange button here
you can begin downloading the coloring pages immediately.  There are other subscription tiers like the Patreon Pin Collector membership & tons of other stuff too, check it all out at my Patreon here.

What is grayscale?  Basically it is like a black & white photograph of a painting.  Instead of just the outlines (like a traditional line-art coloring book) a grayscale coloring page shows all the shading & depth of the original painting.  It's great for transparent media like watercolours, acrylics, colored pencils, digital & more.  If you Google "grayscale coloring" you'll find loads of groups & tutorials.  Don't worry, we're adding grayscale format in addition to our usual lineart formats, so it's an extra bonus, not a replacement.  This way everybody is happy =)
