Yay! [May. 6th, 2003|12:21 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I got my contract from England today for "The Art of Faery" book =)

They've chosen two of my paintings to use in the book - "Wood Nymph" and "Thoughtful Fairy" (technically, it's Thoughtful Fairy #3, but she's my favourite).

Now I just need to sign the contract and send it back! I'm so excited for the book to come out. Even though I just have two pages (I'm assuming the bulk of it will go to the bigger names like Brian Froud, Amy Brown, and David Delamere, lol), it will still be nice to have a nice shiny book with some of my stuff in it =) It also plugs my website, which is very nice ;)

Now - we're going to go out shopping for Matt's mother's Mother's Day gift!

YAY!!! If I buy and send you a copy would you sign it for me? I want to get one for my niece and she would LOVE to have one of the artists signatures in it!!!!

Congratulations by the way. I know you've worked really hard these past years. I'm glad all of the hard work is paying off =)
