Jasmine in California! Also tons of new paintings, pins, videos, sculptures, events and Disney stuf [Mar. 1st, 2019|07:19 pm]

Updates from Jasmine!

It's my biggest, craziest, and best update ever! So much has happened over the past few weeks - and so much is happening right now - and so much is about to happen - sit back, grab yourself a cup of tea or glass of wine and enjoy all the eye candy and exciting news.

I've just finished up doing the January/February International Festival of the Arts on behalf of Disney at Epcot - what a wonderful show - thank you all who came out to see me!  You can now order prints & merchandise with my Festival debut paintings ("Cruella," "Cinderella Leaving the Ball" and "Princess Tiana") either from Disney in person or online with worldwide shipping here at YourWDWStore - three of my best Disney pieces yet!

I'm headed to California March 8th & 9th and will be doing three different autographing/meet & greet appearances in Anaheim.  Friday March 8 I'll be at Downtown Disney's WonderGround Gallery from 6-9pm (free, no tickets needed!).  Then Saturday morning March 9 I'll hop over to Disney California Adventure Park to sign autographs as part of Disney's Food & Wine Festival at the pergola signing area from 11am-1pm (this is the one inside the park so you'll need admission if you are at DCA).  Then Saturday afternoon (right after that, lol) I hop back over to Downtown Disney to the WonderGround Gallery for a 2pm-4pm autographing session there too (again, free, no tickets needed).  Disney will have a bunch of my new Disney character artwork & merchandise available!  Details on these and other upcoming events are here.

Kansas City folks - you are in luck for March!  Naka-Kon (March 15-17 - in Overland Park - details here) my sister Amber & her husband Chris will be setting up a Strangeling Gallery booth with loads of my artwork & merchandise (including pins, autographed stuff & other rarities) on my behalf.  Then I myself come to KC March 29-31 for Planet ComiCon/Spectrum Fantastic Art Live - with new original paintings, a huge booth, a special pin ("At the Easel" - an Event Exclusive!).  Details about Planet ComiCon/Spectrum are here (yes!! They've combined so that Spectrum Fantastic Live is the official art show pavilion within Planet ComiCon at Bartle Hall, so hundreds of amazing artists from around the world will be there).

I have a new series of paintings - my "Resurrected" series up available as canvases & prints (originals have already sold) at Strangeling.com here!

Pin news! It is now March, and we have a new Pin of the Month - "Voodoo in Violet" - she will be shipping out automatically to you Patreon Pin Collectors early this month, or alternately she will be available mid-month to the general public in the Strangeling Pin Shop here .  In the meantime you can snag our new "Heart of Nails" pin here if you haven't yet!   Alternately if you sign up for the Patreon Pin Collector tier here your collection will start with Voodoo in Violet as soon as she is in stock (any day now) along with the nearly-extinct "Strawberry Cupcakes" and the current new Strangeling Lanyard will all arrive immediately as your first installment!  We will also have a new Patreon Exclusive pin - "Luna Moths" (she glows in the dark!) available in time for March shipments, so now is a GOOD TIME to join the  Patreon Pin Collector tier here.  We'll also have a "self-portrait" pin called "At the Easel" that will be a special Event Exclusive pin for Planet ComiCon ;)  If you are interested in collecting pins, definitely join the  Patreon Pin Collector tier here and you can also trade/buy/sell at the free Strangeling Pins Facebook Group here

Coloring book folks - my new Alice in Wonderland coloring book is in the works, slated for an early 2019 publication date with my usual publishers (Blue Angel!!).  In the meantime we have TONS of completely new coloring pages (around 35 I think?) all both traditional lineart & GRAYSCALE up at my Patreon!  These are all exclusive to my Patreon, not found in my coloring books, or anywhere else so they are completely different.  Download all of them and print them on any sort of paper/canvas/board you like!  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 at Patreon we release a grayscale so everybody is happy, hehe =)

I have been broadcasting a lot of LIVE studio sessions from my easel that are available to watch for free up at my Twitch channel!  You can watch the recent archives here (you don't have to sign up for anythin'!) and you can find even earlier/older broadcasts exported to my YouTube archive here.  I'll be back broadcasting live from my studio easel this Sunday March 3rd starting at 3PM Eastern Time (NOON Pacific Time, 20:00 UK Time) - mark your calendar or set your phone reminder, you can watch me paint up on my public Twitch channel HERE (it's free, all are welcome).  You can just lurk privately or you can make a free account to chat & win prizes & talk with me & stuff.  I'm up there once or twice a week and am always happy to answer any questions, talk about art, technique, etc. while I'm painting.

I have a new figurine set that is a collaboration between myself, the Walt Disney Company, the Hamilton Collection & Disney's Alice in Wonderland films.... and they are ADORABLE!  They are literally just now starting to accept the pre-orders so they are on the USA Hamilton Collection website at the moment - if your computer/phone/device is located in the USA currently you can click this link HERE and pre-order!  (Don't worry, if you live outside the US you'll be able to order worldwide once the production starts this summer, from sites like Enchanted Treasures Gifts here - they'll pop up there later).

UK folks - I'm coming to the Tintagel Fairy Fayre on May 4th!  I'll be there in person, in Cornwall at the fair and we'll be debuting a new print and also a free Event Exclusive Strangeling Pin based on my "La Belle Dame Sans Merci" that I painted this last weekend - you can see me paint her and listen to us talk about the upcoming festival on the archived video (free for all to see) here and you can find out more about the event, links, etc. on my Tintagel Event Page here!

Woooo, I think that's enough for now - you can always stay tuned up at my Instagram here , my Facebook here, my website here,  my Twitch channel here and better yet my Patreon (best of all) here - I post everywhere just about every day, whether it be photos, video, sneak peeks or progress-pics so you can stay in the loop despite the algorithms! ;)

"Cinderella Leaving the Ball,"  "Cruella" and "Princess Tiana" - original acrylic paintings on 16x20" panels

All my Disney artwork, prints & merchandise can be shipped worldwide with the Disney shopping service "Your WDW Store" here or in person at Disney's WonderGround Galleries and other themepark locations.

The "Cruella" and "Cinderella Leaving the Ball" original acrylic paintings have SOLD, but as of last check my new "Princess Tiana" original acrylic painting is available from Epcot's "Art of Disney" gallery for $7,200 (they can ship worldwide too) - call
(407) 828-3929 if you are interested in the original Tiana painting herself!

If you are coming to my Anaheim events at Disneyland (Downtown Disney & DCA) March 8-9th (or visiting Disneyland's WonderGround Gallery anytime thereafter) or visiting Walt Disney World any time soon, you can buy prints & merchandise featuring these three new Disney © paintings in person!  Otherwise - order worldwide online from the shopping service  "Your WDW Store" here (they even have cool stuff like the iPhone cases direct from Disney's D-Tech there, the postcards, etc.).  As these items are made exclusively by the Walt Disney Company, I don't make/print the artwork/products or sell them myself (basically I just paint the original paintings and Disney takes it from there) so if you have questions regarding shipping, ordering, etc. either contact the YourWDWStore service or email Disney directly via their Disney Parks Merchandise division here:  merchandise.guest.services@disneyparks.com with any questions!

"Resurrected" Series

*Original Acrylic Paintings have all SOLD

*Prints & Canvases are available for worldwide shipping at Strangeling here!

The original pieces were each acrylic paintings on panel, but they have all been sold by the Corey Helford Gallery.

The next best thing - 8"x10" Masterpiece Limited Edition Canvases are hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed/dated/numbered (only FIVE are ever made), gallery-wrapped and ready to hang, $195 available worldwide at Strangeling here!

We also have 8"x10" glossy paper prints signed on the back by me from $15.99 and 8"x10" Open Edition Remarqued Canvases for only $100 with a signed COA at Strangeling here for worldwide shipping.

I'm sorry that my original paintings have mostly sold before I get the chance to send out these mailing list updates (I mean, I'm happy that they do sell quickly, lol, but I apologize to those who typically rely on the mailing list to find out ordering info).  You can always see my currently-available original paintings on the "Originals" section of my Strangeling website here .  The way to get sneak previews before everybody else though is to join me on Patreon here


"La Belle Dame Sans Merci"

A new painting I started working on mostly during my last Twitch video broadcast, she is a 12"x16" original acrylic painting.  Prints will debut at the Tintagel Fairy Fayre, and will shortly thereafter be available worldwide at Strangeling.com .  We'll also have a special Strangeling Pin as an Event Exclusive giveaway at the show for customers attending in person!

The original painting is available no matter where you live - if you are interested, email me at JasmineToad@aol.com - she'll be priced at around $5400, will be beautifully framed, and we can ship her worldwide.  We are now taking down collectors' names for the "first dibs" list to contact once the original painting is finished & available for purchase, just let us know if you'd like to be added to the list (collectors are indexed in the order in which emails are timestamped).
I have been broadcasting a lot of LIVE studio sessions from my easel that are available to watch for free up at my Twitch channel!  You can watch the recent archives here - including the creation of "La Belle Dame Sans Merci" - I talk a lot about the inspiration behind her and the upcoming festival (you don't have to sign up for anything) and you can find even earlier/older broadcasts exported to my YouTube archive here.  I'll be back broadcasting live from my studio easel this Sunday March 3rd starting at 3PM Eastern Time (NOON Pacific Time, 20:00 UK Time) - mark your calendar or set your phone reminder, you can watch me paint up on my public Twitch channel HERE (it's free, all are welcome).  You can just lurk privately or you can make a free account to chat & win prizes & talk with me & stuff.  I'm up there once or twice a week and am always happy to answer any questions, talk about art, technique, etc. while I'm painting.

The set comes with three figurines - characters of mine dressed as the official Disney live action film characters - Alice, the White Rabbit & the Mad Hatter - and also a gloriously sculpted Alice-themed backdrop/shelf to set them upon!  Each figurine will be hand painted and limited edition - and again, USA customers can pre-order the set right HERE now today (to reserve your set once shipping begins this summer) and if you live outside the US just hang tight, you'll be able to order internationally once production has begun - I'll keep ya posted!
