Jasmine's at Epcot! New Original Paintings, Disney, New Pins, Custom Giveaway, Kirin & Bakeneko, The Moon & More

Updates from Jasmine!

Happy New Year! 2018 is off to a magnificent start.  Sit back, relax and enjoy all my new artwork....

Firstly - new stuff is happening at Disney!  I've been appearing at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts and will be back for many more dates!  Tomorrow (Saturday the 20th) I'll be at Epcot's "Pop Gallery Tent" from 5-7pm over by the Canada Pavilion, and next Friday (the 26th) I'll be at Epcot's "WonderGround Gallery" tent (over by the the France/Morocco Pavilions) from 5-7pm as well.  I'll be back for many other dates too - both tents always have my artwork (Disney stuff at WG, personal stuff at Pop) whether I'm there or not, in case you miss me.  The Pop Gallery Tent has my new Strangeling Vinyl dolls, by the way, and the WonderGround Gallery Tent has my new URSULA prints & merch.  Details and additional dates are on my Events Page here

Speaking of Strangeling Vinyl - we just got our huge shipment of "Alice in the Starry Night" inventory in, so if you pre-ordered your doll they are shipping NOW.  If you were waiting for them to get in stock - we have them NOW so you can order worldwide (we ship anywhere) right here on my website today!

And something fun just for my fans - I'm giving away an original CUSTOM painting up at my Patreon at 8pm EST this coming Monday night!  Join Patreon here - a custom painting means that you'll get to tell me what to paint and even choose a frame.  Tons of other fun stuff happening up there too right now.

New paintings!  I have  four new paintings to show you!  Two have sold, one is up for auction, and one is now available at a gallery!  The first is the original concept painting for my "Alice in the Starry Night" vinyl dolls - I'm doing an auction right now for the actual original 8x10" acrylic painting and you also get a bonus autographed Alice vinyl doll too!  Bidding for the original Alice painting / Doll auction is on eBay right here.  Bidding starts at a penny but it looks like that is moving fast!   "The Moon" original 78 Tarot painting has sold, but prints are  here, and then we have my gorgeous geisha girl in "Kirin and Bakeneko" available from the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles (email them at sherri@coreyhelfordgallery.com or call (310) 287-2340, they ship worldwide).  We do have prints & canvases of "Kirin and Bakeneko" here.  Finally, "Alice's Advice" is a brand new original painting for my upcoming Alice in Wonderland Oracle Deck - the original has sold, but we have prints & canvases now available here.

We have a NEW enamel pin though this month!  The January Pin of the Month - "Frost Dragonling" - available to the public for sale here!  You can see all of the Strangeling Pins we've released so far together here.  Or alternately you can sign up for the Pin Collector Club through my Patreon here and you  will automatically receive Frost Dragonling along with the Patreon-only pin "The Scarecrow" and you'll get each new Pin of the Month as they are released (along with Patreon-only pins and exclusive bonus pin giveaways, discounts, and more).  We are releasing a new Strangeling Lanyard too and you will receive the lanyard (and any new lanyard designs we come out with automatically!.

Speaking of Patreon - I've posted a new Exclusive Patreon coloring page - "Releasing Fireflies" - a new downloadable page - if you are already part of the coloring tier ($5+) you can click here and see all the new pages!  Not yet a member?  Just $5 lets you immediately download ALL the coloring pages so far, all at once.  There are eight pages in all (so theoretically you could always join for a week, download all the coloring pages and quit if you don't want any of the other perks, all for $5).  If you do enjoy them, stick around and you'll get new ones as they are added (and of course previews, sneak peeks, behind the scenes content, giveaways including original paintings & more).  Simply click the link to Patreon here and click the orange "Become a Patron" button, it takes less than sixty seconds.

Finally - we have a couple of LAST CHANCE canvases - the final #5/5 Masterpiece Edition canvas of "Alice Through a Vermeer Glass" is up for auction here and the final #25/25 Limited Edition canvas of "Ninja Dragonlings" is up for auction here.  All the limited/masterpiece editions are all gone other than these last ones up for auction, we do still have open editions available however.

Wow, and that's it!  Now scroll down to see it all!

Alice in the Starry Night Strangeling Vinyl Design - Original Painting!

Original Acrylic painting 8"x10" - actual production artwork! Auction winner also receives an autographed vinyl doll! eBay auction is here

One of the most unique auctions I have ever run - the winning bidder receives the original 8x10" acrylic painting as well as an autographed Alice doll!  Bidding starts at just a penny - click here for bidding & details

The original painting is 8x10" acrylic painting on masonite panel (.25" thick, could be easily framed).  This is not a print, or an animation cel, but an actual original painting I painted to create one of my line of Strangeling Vinyl - for "Alice in the Starry Night".  (Strangeling Vinyl is now available WORLDWIDE).

The first character in my new Strangeling Vinyl toy/doll collection is Alice, and to create the vinyl dolls I first had to do a complete full-scale original painting for the "concept art" on which the doll design is based.  This is the actual production art piece used to design the dolls!

Second - you get one of the Vinyl Dolls, too!  Your little "Alice in the Starry Night" doll is brand new, just released, autographed on the bottom of the doll and also autographed on the lovely box she comes in.  Keep the doll to play with (small parts, ages 3+) or shadowbox it with the original painting - that'd be cool!

Just want a Strangeling Vinyl Doll - they are in stock now and available for worldwide shipping right here on my website.

My illustration for the 78 Tarot "Mythical" deck - seventy-eight artists, each painting one card.  Mine was The Moon!  As a "Mythic" deck, each card is supposed to reference well-known cultural/spiritual entities.  I've gone with "Selene" or "Luna" (moon goddess, of course!) and visually referenced the Alphonse Mucha piece, including elements of both the Flemish Tarot's Moon (by including the distaffe) and the Rider-Waite Deck (with the wolves/dogs and pillars, and the crawdaddy).  The original painting SOLD in advance to one of my Patreon Patrons before she was available to the public, but we have open edition glossy paper prints as well as Limited Edition Canvas prints all at my website

It's time for me to give away a new original painting, and I've decided this time to make it a CUSTOM painting again since it was so much fun last time!

I will choose ONE Patron at random at  8:00PM Eastern Time this coming Monday, January 22nd =)

So far the painting l've started looks like she does in the photo above.  The lucky recipient will then get to tell me how to finish the painting!

Many of you may know that I often have a waiting list of 3+ years and a pricelist typically well into the $1000s -$10000s -$for custom artwork, so this is a remarkable opportunity.  I'm always happy to ship anywhere in the world.

PS - here's how the last Patreon Custom turned out -

Strangeling Vinyls now in stock!

In Stock for immediate shipping here (worldwide!)

"Alice in the Starry Night" is now IN STOCK available to order (WORLDWIDE) up at my Strangeling.com website HERE.

If you've already pre-ordered, your doll has now shipped (you'll receive a tracking number in your email, if you don't see it - check spam).

If you haven't ordered yet, we now have all our inventory in stock for immediate shipping!  We ship worldwide.  Up on my website HERE.

"Alice in the Starry Night" is the first of what will (hopefully) be a collection of Strangeling Vinyl toys/dolls, assuming this first little beauty does well, I will then be designing more characters - all around the same size/shape so they can play together (or be displayed together ;)) nicely.  They also come in a neat box for those of you who like keeping collector toys in boxes =)

On my website HERE they are $34.99 (if you are in a country with a different currency, don't worry - your bank or credit/debit card or paypal or whatever will automatically convert it, you can check at xe.com to see updated currency exchange rates, they fluctuate by the minute).   Shipping is actual cost based on your postal/zip code and is calculated during checkout as well (add it to your shopping cart, put your address in, and it will tell you before you have to buy anything).

They also have them in stock NOW at the Pop Gallery at Disney Springs and YES they are also at the Pop Gallery tent at the upcoming Epcot International Festival of the Arts throughout January/February if you'd rather buy yours in person (it'll be $39.99 I think at Disney Springs/Pop Gallery/Epcot, but hey - no shipping, lol, so it will even out).  I'll be there in person for many live autographing sessions, dates & details are here

Jasmine's New Original Mermaid Paintings, Disney, Podcast, Dresses (Plus sizes!), New Coloring Pages

Updates from Jasmine!

Once again - another record-setting update, so much new news!  What a crazy winter so far!

Firstly - Happy Winter Solstice today! (Or summer, down south!).  Happy Christmas, Holidays of all kinds, and upcoming New Year!  Happy everything!  We are on our way up to spend some time up in Kansas City so we can visit with our families over the holidays.  As I'll be at my KC studio, I'll still be painting, we'll still be shipping, printing, etc. - all orders will go as usual, no delays.  The only potential short delays will be with Masterpiece Edition Canvases (as they are currently hanging in Florida, lol, I'll have to wait to mail those out when we return on January 3rd).

Secondly - thank you ALL who came out to my end of year shows at Disney!  I already have added a bunch of new events for 2018 up on my Events Page Here - including seven appearances at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts (at which Disney will debut my new "Ursula" prints & merchandise), and for you UK folks I'll be attending Glastonbury's Avalon Faery Fayre March 10-11.

New paintings!  I have some three new paintings to show you from my Mermaids show!  "Dumbo Octopus Mermaid" - original painting is AVAILABLE details here"Monet Mermaid" original has sold, but prints are here , and then we have a tiny original painting called "Miniature Study with Anglerfish" available from the Pop Gallery (call them at  407-827-8200 or email them here, they ship worldwide).   All of the other seven originals (including Monet Mermaid) were sold at the show, we just have the mini Anglerfish & the Dumbo Octopus mermaid still available (see photos below!), and prints of the two larger ones.

Hey, I'm on a podcast!  I am the special guest this week on the popular podcast "Stories For Nerds" - you can listen beginning tomorrow (Friday, the 22nd) - the episode I appear on is SFN Podcast EpiXode 2.26 and you can listen to it starting tomorrow HERE or download it from wherever you like to get your podcasts.  They have an interview with me and then I chime in for the remaining part of the show which is a "year in review" for all things nerdy (books, scifi/fantasy, computer stuff, movies, video games, etc.).

Pin news!  You guys cleaned us OUT during the holidays this year,  "Ruby Dragonling," "Alice in the Starry Night," "Voodoo in Blue," "Pink Lightning," and "Biohazard" pins are all SOLD OUT and are now retired. You bought them all.  My friend Paul who runs StrangelingUK may have some of these still left in our British inventory - click here - he is in the UK but ships worldwide, so that's your last chance!  Otherwise, you might want to check in at the Strangeling Pin Collecting Group here to see if anybody wants to trade or sell theirs.

We do have a NEW pin though this month!  The December Pin of the Month - "Snowflake Fairy" - available to the public for sale here!  And we still have some of THEM in stock, lol.  And many more to come - you can see all the Strangeling Pins so far here .  Alternately too, the best way to stay on top of things is to sign up as a Patreon Pin Collector on my Patreon here.  While it's still December you can immediately get the Snowflake Fairy (along with the Patreon-only pin "The Scarecrow" , and the Strangeling lanyard), and you'll get each new Pin of the Month as they are released (along with Patreon-only pins and exclusive bonus pin giveaways, discounts, and more).

Speaking of Patreon - we hit our $5k goal - THANK YOU ALL!  That was our goal to hire a new fulltime Florida employee (which will open us up to many more exciting things).  I really can't thank you guys enough, it will change our lives.  I've announced the $6k goal (livestreaming paintcam!) and the $7k goal (giant printers!) up there today too.

In fact, I've just posted a bonus Christmas coloring page - "Nutcracker Suite" along with "Winter" as two new Patreon Exclusive downloadable pages - if you are already part of the coloring tier ($5+) you can click here and see all the new pages!  Not yet a member?  Just $5 lets you immediately download ALL the coloring pages so far, all at once.  If you enjoy them, stick around and you'll get new ones as they are added (and of course previews, sneak peeks, behind the scenes content, giveaways including original paintings & more).  Simply click the link to Patreon here and click the orange "Become a Patron" button, it takes less than sixty seconds.

The clothing company "Spooky Kook" has just launched their amazing "Strangeling" clothing line!  Gorgeous dresses, blouses & more featuring my artwork here!  They are in the UK but they ship worldwide including the USA.  They are reasonably priced (around $30 for a dress!!), have a fantastic range of sizes - UK 8 - 24, which includes a range of plus sizes too.  If you have specific questions about the clothing or sizes please contact Spooky Kook here (I just know about painting, not clothing).  Soft, lovely, high quality fabric too, I love it.

Limited FREE Africa Plane Tickets Available for Jasmine's Art Safari 2019

PLEASE NOTE:  I posted this up at Patreon a couple days early for first dibs, but as of this morning there are still a couple of these available, so I'm posting it on my mailing list too before offering these to the public ;)

I came home from my workshop in Nashville to an excited message from Matt Collins at Tourica (the company that is running my workshop/art safari in Africa in 2019 - all details about the Safari are here -  please come with me, they have just started taking deposits NOW so reserve your spot) - he's just signed a promotional deal with South African Airlines that is giving him TEN FREE TICKETS from the US to our starting point in Africa.

He is using them for the next ten students/friends/fans who sign up for my tour.  This will save you hundreds, thousands of dollars as you'll only have to make it to JFK (NY) or IAD (Washington DC) and you'll get to use FREE AIRFARE for all the international bits.  How cool is that?  Again, it's for the first ten people who sign up starting now - (if you've already sent a deposit, check with Matt Collins and see if you can retroactively apply the savings, lol).  Email Matt at matt@touricatours.com to reserve your spot and snag FREE airline tickets, this is incredibly exciting and I'm very thankful to South African Airlines & to Matt at Tourica for using this promo specifically for me & YOU, my friends who will be coming with me to go on safari, travel, make art (or watch me make art, lol) and have fun.  Again though, just the first ten people, several of my Patreon Patrons already snagged them, so if you are wanting to come try to talk to him asap.

Even if we've run out of free tickets, definitely still get your deposit in to save your spot, as space is limited.  Again - any questions - email Matt Collins at matt@touricatours.com  (unless it's specifically an art-related question, and in that case ask ME!).  The itinerary and other details are here for the tour/workshop.

Updates from Jasmine!

And again I think this might be another record-setting update, so much new news!  It's been awhile since I've had the time to send out my mailing list, so you are in for another treat today.  Sit back, make some tea, and get ready for pretty pictures and good news.

Firstly - we are back home from Nashville, where I was a teacher at The Fantastic Workshop!  The workshop was amazing (fantastic even), had a blast!  We are back home now and gearing up for our big annual Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale.  Starting Friday and running all four days we'll have a huge sale, 25% off all prints & pins at Strangeling.com and StrangelingUK.com with coupon code THANKS2017 - I'll send out a reminder, don't worry.

Secondly - I am GIVING AWAY a custom original painting!  At 8pm Wednesday, November 22 we will randomly choose one of my Patreon Patrons, all members will be entered automatically (if you're not a member yet sign up here by 8pm Wednesday so you'll get in!!!).  The winner will get to tell me how to finish the painting to your own specifications and will receive the original painting in your own choice of frame - details below!  Your own chance to see your idea painting, and yes you get the original painting.

I've got a couple of upcoming shows here in Florida at Disney Springs - my Mermaids show is  December 9 (6-9pm at the Pop Gallery), and an autographing evening for Disney on December 16 (4-7 at the Co-Op).  See them on my official events page here .  For the Mermaids Show we'll be giving away an exclusive Dumbo Octopus Mermaid Pin to the first 100 customers - details here or scroll down below in this update!

New paintings!  I have two new paintings to show you (both the originals have already sold, but we have prints & canvases).  "Unseelie Court:  Gluttony" is here, "Faces of Faery 241" (featuring an American Staffordshire Terrier!) is here!

In addition, I finally have the original "Bone Chariot" painting AVAILABLE here - 52" high in a magnificent frame, details below with photos or click here.

ACEO cards!  I have a batch of brand new ACEO Cards HERE (Art Cards, Editions & Originals = ACEOs - trading card sized pieces of art created by many artists online).  Each is up for auction starting at just on penny each, I only make one single ACEO card for each painting I do, so they are one of a kind, 2.5x3.5" canvas giclees that are each hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed and numbered #1 out of 1!  Again, click here to see them all or to place bids.

Pins, Pins, Pins - we have the November Pin of the Month - "Wolf Moon" - available to the public for sale here!  We also have released a brand new Patreon Exclusive Pin - "The Scarecrow" - details about her are here.  She is not for sale, but is an exclusive for all of our Patreon Pin Collectors (the $25 tier).  If you are already a Patreon pin collector both "The Scarecrow" and "Wolf Moon" are on their way!  If you are not yet, sign up here and you'll get both along with the Strangeling lanyard here.

Speaking of Patreon, some of you will be VERY interested in this - as some of you know, my husband and partner Matthew David Becket is a writer of wonderful fiction, and he has created his own personal Patreon here to showcase his writings (including a Patreon exclusive serialized story "Bleeding Garbage", various writing tutorials & behind-the-scenes info, movie reviews and more writing stuff).  He's preparing to launch audio versions too.  Not for children.  Join him here.  Starting next year we'll be collaborating on what we hope to be a weekly video program too, so stay tuned ;)

More Patreon news - I'm giving my Patrons a free BONUS coloring page "Fruit Dragonling" as a Thanksgiving Gift this week (probably tomorrow!) along with the Ninja Dragonlings coloring page this month.  My coloring pages are Exclusive to Patreon (not found anywhere else), downloadable/printable, 1-2 new ones per month, and 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. You'll get ALL the coloring pages so far immediately, and all the new ones as they are released.  If you are already a Patreon Patron at the Coloring Tier, you can always see ALL the Patreon Exclusive Coloring Pages HERE and can download them as often as you like.

My Butterfly Virtues figurine collection is now available worldwide and you can see actual PHOTOS (not just the concept art) popping up!  See below for details.  USA customers can order the collection now, immediate shipment as they are in stock hereLive outside the US?  Burning Desires here has started offering the first couple in the series at their page here for worldwide shipping.

Do you love beautiful handmade ink pens?  I do!  So does Michelle, the artist behind "Innovations in Ink" - she has licensed many of my paintings to put on her handmade artisanal ink pens and you can see them here .  You can also see & purchase them in person at the Pop Gallery at Disney Springs - they really must be seen in person to be appreciated (the ones at Pop Gallery actually contain my physical signature on a panel inside the pen itself - so neat!).

Again - the entry deadline for my Original Custom Painting is 8pm Wednesday night, Eastern Time.  All tiers and all members of my Patreon page here will automatically be entered literally up to the very last second at 8pm, so get up there if you can!

Original Custom Painting Giveaway!

8pm Wednesday, November 22 - all members are entered Sign up at Patreon here!

Yes, I'm giving away a CUSTOM PAINTING this month!  The winner (ALL of my Patreon Patrons will be automatically entered, all levels, you don't need to do anything as long as your account is valid!) will be selected via Random Number Generator on Wednesday, November 22nd at around 8pm Eastern Time.  Not a member? Sign up at my Patreon page here

Yes, you'll get your own custom original painting - the one in the photo above.  It's not a huge painting, but it's YOURS, and you can pick either of the picture frames shown here too (or if you want to frame her yourself, you can do that later).

She's an original acrylic painting on panel, and so far she looks just like the photo above.  If you are the winner, I will contact you directly and you'll get to tell me how to finish her and then I'll mail you the finished original painting - just for you =)

You'll get to decide:

*Hairstyle/colour

*Skintone/makeup (she's just grey now, but I can make her any colour you want!)

*Eyes (colour, eyemakeup, I can change her expression with her eyebrows....)

*Wings?  Is she a fairy?  Maybe she's a mermaid?

*Portrait - she is going to have the proportions & face type as shown, but if you send me a photo of yourself or somebody you love I can match the painting's skin/hair/eyes with the photo

*Clothing (or not?) - she's roughly mid chest level & up, portrait style so I can't exactly paint in any shoes or legs, lol, but I can paint any kind of top you like, feel free to send photos of what you're wanting for reference

*Tattoos/jewelry

*Background/theme (whatever I can fit around her!)  Is she in space?  Underwater?  Surrounded by spiders?  If can fit it in, I can paint it.

*Perhaps a small pet or other accessory (again, keep in mind the size of the painting and the figure within it, but I could definitely fit in a pet dragon or puppy or whatever!)

I'll then finish the painting to meet your specifications, email you a pic for your approval, then I'll varnish, frame and mail you the original painting itself for you to keep.

What I CAN'T do:

*I can't paint Disney characters for you, I can only do that for the Walt Disney Company.

*Other people's intellectual property (I can't take characters or artwork or trademarked images that belong to other people, movies, comics etc.) - unless you yourself have obtained written and verifiable permission and/or a licensing agreement from the IP holder.

*Brand logos or political icons (I'm not an editorial cartoonist nor do I want my artwork used to leverage political or commercial agendas)

*I cannot transfer the copyright of the finished piece, as the artist I retain all the copyright and reproduction rights to the image.  If you are interested in hiring me to create a "work-for-hire" commissioned piece this is not the place, just contact me privately, lol.

*I cannot squeeze in additional faces.  Please don't ask me to fit in a weirdly small person next to her to try to get two-for-one, lol - it will look bad and oddly unbalanced.  I can totally fit in a cat or a little dragon, but no more humanoids should be added in this piece.

This is going to be fun!!!

Thank you all for the support!  As long as you are signed up at my Patreon page here you will be among those included in the original custom painting giveaway (and zillions of other fun giveaways and other good stuff).   Thank you all so much for your support, I could not do what I do without you.

XO

Yes, customer does mean that you need to buy something (it can be small, but it needs to be a Jasmine Becket-Griffith item of some sort).  More details about the event are here.

They will have 100 pins, one pin per person limit, person must make a purchase (ie, if you and your two friends come and buy a print = only one pin. If you and your two friends come and each buy a print = 3 pins). This is quite a special giveaway, so they are going to follow this rule strictly. I myself will be showing up at the Pop Gallery at 6pm, so you have two hours before that to snag a pin if you are an earlybird. They'll keep giving away pins to customers making Jasmine Becket-Griffith purchases until all 100 pins have been given away!

I'll be there in person from 6-9pm and can autograph anything you want - anything you bring from home or buy at the show. We'll have the Mermaids Coloring Books, I'll be debuting a couple new Mermaid paintings, we'll have tons of other mermaid themed (and non-mermaid themed) prints, canvases, books, pins, jewelry, paintings, oracle decks & more. Again - pin giveaway starts at 4PM! Free with any JBG purchase. These pins will NOT be for sale elsewhere.

Innovations In Ink

High end handmade artisanal ink pens are here

At Innovations in Ink here I'm pleased to announce my partnership with Innovations In Ink! Super high-end handmade artisanal ink pens.

It is difficult to describe/show off online the hours of work and level of quality that goes into each and every one of these. Each is hand-turned and created by my friend Michelle, an artisan pen crafter, and you can see them here and also IN PERSON at the Pop Gallery located at Disney Springs here in Florida. 

If anybody has any questions please contact Michelle at Innovations in Ink on their website (I'm just the artist who did the paintings, lol, I do not make or sell the pens).

Jasmine's Event Canceled by Storm, FOF Month, More Coloring Book News, Ninja Dragonlings, Calendars and more!

Updates from Jasmine!

Another big update - wow, we have been busy!

Firstly - thank you all who have sent kind & worried messages to us about the hurricane!  Please don't worry, we are fine, we live very near Orlando in Central Florida, Irma should be only a tropical storm (or less than a hurricane) by the time she arrives here.  We've been through Cat 4s before in our fortress of a house and have never had problems, we are all set. Probably just a bunch of rain here.

That being said, just to be on the safe side, Disney has unfortunately canceled my WonderGround Co-Op tomorrow night (wind & rain of any sort aren't good for art shows!).  They have however scheduled me for three more new events at Disney Springs - mark your calendars - November 11 (4-7pm at the Co-Op), December 9 (6-9pm at the Pop Gallery), December 16 (4-7 at the Co-Op).  I'll add them to my official events page here SOON.

The Kansas City Renaissance Festival is in full swing and my shop is open every weekend, #251 over by the Joust!  I'll be there in person for sure on September 30, October 1, October 7, October 8 if you'd like autographs.

Thank you all who came to see us at DragonCon and made it our best DragonCon ever!!  Were you not able to come but still want to score some for the FREE DragonCon swag?  We snagged a ton of the extra DC Room Key Cards I designed (and autographed), set aside 8 of the DC Strangeling reusable giant plastic carrier bags, and have half a dozen each of the backups of the DragonCon Exclusive Pins! No, I will not sell these, but I will be giving them away as prizes randomly to my Patreon Patrons sometime next week! Sign up for Patreon here to get in on the giveaways next week, we'll have dozens of winners!

One of my new paintings that debuted at DragonCon was "Ninja Dragonlings!" The original sold at the show but we now have prints & canvases on sale this week on my website here.

Big announcement - September is Faces of Faery Fan Month! All 240 Faces of Faery prints (including all canvases) here at my website are 25% off with code FOF25 . We'll also be doing fun things like auctioning off your own custom Faces of Faery later this month, releasing some classic #1s that have been in the vault, and showing off some brand new original FOFs!

Would you like your Mermaids Coloring book a couple months before everybody else, no matter where you live?  Would you also like it autographed?  Well, we are getting a limited number of advance author copies that will be IN STOCK IN OCTOBER and I can autograph them for you! We have them up for pre-order on my website here, we ship worldwide (we can't offer the low prices Amazon can, lol, but hey - they're autographed!).  All the bookstores are saying "Mid December" for shipping, and theirs won't be autographed, so this is kinda neat for you earlybirds!

Next up - in case anybody missed the announcement, in other coloring news - starting next week - 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!)

And finally - Brushdance has just released my 2018 Calendar! The Strangeling 2018 Calendar is available worldwide!  There is a wall calendar (12 pictures, full sized) and a weekly planner (just artwork on the cover).  Just go to Google and search:  Strangeling 2018 Calendar  (don't call it the Jasmine Becket-Griffith Calendar as some bookstores don't bother with my long windy name).  Or click for - Amazon, or AmazonUK , BookDepository (free delivery worldwide!), Calendars.com , Brushdance.com - all sorts of places have it in stock now.

"Ninja Dragonlings"

Original Acrylic painting 12"x16" $5200 SOLD at DragonCon  Prints available here

Prints now available from $9.99 here - we ship WORLDWIDE.

I love this one! The original painting was sold at DragonCon (it appeared on the hotel key cards this year! I have some of the extra key cards too, we'll be giving those away over at my Patreon!).  You may recognize these from my Hamilton Collection figurine designs from many years back - Izumi the Water Ninja, and Yuriko the Fire Ninja!

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

Faces of Faery Fan Month!

Use code FOF25 during checkout - 25% off all Faces of Faery here

All Faces of Faery prints & canvases are 25% off all September with code:  FOF25

Yes, all 240 of them!  All are beautiful little square paintings, great for groupings or fitting in small spaces, I adore them.  The Faces of Faery is a series of hundreds of paintings I've been working on over the past decade or so, each featuring a variety of types of characters all with fantastical elements of faery to one extent of another.

You can see the entire set of them all here

And again, during checkout enter code FOF25 and you'll get 25% off all Faces of Faery.

We'll also be doing some other fun FOF related stuff all month - new Faces of Faery originals, an auction for a custom Faces of Faery painting, releasing the #1s of some old favourites that have been hanging out in my art closet, lol, and more!.

Coloring Pages are Coming!

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

Here's a sneak preview - this will be out October 2nd and my stepsister Sonya helpfully colored one in partially to give us all a sneak peek!

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.

Early Autographed Mermaids Coloring Books!

Shipping in mid October, worldwide, signed by ME!  Pre-order here

Want a signed copy and want your book months early?  Worldwide? Autographed copies, worldwide shipping - Pre-Order for October NOW here we have officially been assured that we'll have a handful (around 150-200) author advance copies of the Mermaids Coloring Book in MID-OCTOBER for me to autograph and sell on my website here! We ship anywhere in the world!

NOTE:  You can also pre-order at all the Amazons, BookDepository, Llewellyn, BlueAngelOnline, etc. for mid-December shipping (according to their websites), but those will not be autographed (but are cheaper of course).

Obviously since I have to first mail them to myself from Australia to autograph and then mail to our shipping center in Kansas, lol, those costs jack up the price of what I have to charge on my own site, so that is why they cost more from me than from Amazon or other booksellers (also my wholesale cost is astronomical compared to what the big companies get, even as the artist). Shipping too is more expensive, as we just have a regular personal shipping account (unlike Amazon, etc.) - we cannot control this.  We charge exactly what the post office charges us, not a penny more.

But hey - mine will be signed by the artist (me!) and will arrive months earlier!

Also too - if you are in Florida in December- December 9th we'll be having a Mermaids event at Pop Gallery at Disney Springs - we'll have the coloring books there and I can autograph those for ya too, and in person! Details about that event are here.

Strangeling 2018 Calendars!

Available Worldwide!

Brushdance has just released my 2018 Calendar!

The Strangeling 2018 Calendar is available worldwide!  There is a wall calendar (12 pictures, full sized) and a weekly planner (just artwork on the cover).  Just go to Google and search:  Strangeling 2018 Calendar  (don't call it the Jasmine Becket-Griffith Calendar as some bookstores don't bother with my long windy name).

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.

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.

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!

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!

*All customers purchasing orders of $10+ will get a FREE giant Strangeling Reusable Plastic Carrying bag!  (While supplies last, we have made 500 of them!)

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.

*Original paintings are priced from $195 (for Tiny Treasures) to $5000+  *Limited Edition Canvas Prints are priced from $50-$95. *Mini prints are only $3. *8x10" prints are $10. *Coloring Books and Oracle Decks are $25. *Open Edition pins are $10 (DragonCon Exclusives are FREE, we will not sell them) *Large canvases are $195.

Jasmine is happy to autograph anything you buy or bring with you from home for no charge. We accept credit/debit cards and cash.

******** 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).

Join Jasmine in Africa - March 2019 - for an Art Safari Adventure!

A Very Special Update...

Those of you at Patreon saw this coming, but to everybody else - here's the big news!

(EDIT:  some spots have already been taken as of 4:00PM EST, so if you are in any way interested in potentially going - please email matt@touricatours.com asap so they can start planning!!)

Anybody want to come with me to Africa in 2019?  I'm returning, this time to run my own "Art Safari!" ALL the details are here (or just Google Jasmine Becket Art Safari ) and the full itinerary is available as a PDF available here Everybody is welcome, whether you are an artist, want to be an artist, just happen to like art, or just want to go on vacation with me & Matt to Africa for a couple weeks!

Email matt@touricatours.com  if you are in any way interested, they can hold  a spot for you  (that's my friend who runs the tours, not my husband Matty, hehe).

This will be in March 2019 - we have plenty of time to plan and to save $$ =)

There is a limit of 20 students/travelers, so even if you are only *slightly* interested, let matt@touricatours.com  know asap.

I went to Africa last year (South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia) with some musician friends with the same tour group, on a music themed safari.  Matt (from Tourica tours) has invited me to come back and this time hold an Art workshop themed safari.

For a photographic odyssey courtesy of my brother-in-law Paul Andrews - he has posted photographs he took when we went on last year's trip to Africa together with our musician friends. Click HERE to see them (he is a professional photographer so they are glorious photos to entertain you either way!)   Of course instead of Robyn playing concerts, our trip will have me doing artsy stuff, painting, optional workshops, etc. - but we will be visiting much the same itinerary (with the exception of some of the Johannesburg photos at the top of the page, as our trip will be slightly shorter).

Tourica Tours (I can speak from experience both as a customer, friend & client) do a simply amazing job of creating a laidback but luxurious, hassle-free way of traveling around Africa.  I can't wait to go back!

I'll be doing lectures, live painting demonstrations, art workshops, etc. throughout the tour.  My husband Matty of course will be coming too (he has never been to Africa and is super excited).  We'll stay in a variety of different lodgings - luxury Safari "glamping", nice hotels/apartments in Cape Town, fun boat rides down the Zambezi, a few nights right by Victoria Falls (one of the most stunning places I have ever been), & more.  The safari drives are amazing, you will see all the animals you would expect to see & then tons more, all out in the wild!  (Some of you might remember my elephants story...... ;) )

It ain't cheap, but it is truly a trip of a lifetime and worth every single penny & then some.  The accommodations are super nice, food everywhere is great (I'm vegetarian and had all sorts of great veggie options everywhere).  Let me see - it's at $6999 which means if you can set aside $10 - $12/day until the trip, lol, you'd have it covered.... plenty of advance notice!  ;P

ALL the details and FAQ are on the official website here

The full itinerary is available as a PDF available here

Again -email matt@touricatours.com if you have any travel or tour related questions.

Please feel free to ask me (email me at JasmineToad@aol.com , don't respond only to this mailing list update as I may not see it, just email me at JasmineToad@aol.com ) if you have any questions for me about the art side of things, or about the places we'll be visiting (as these are all places I love and have mostly visited before in person!).

I hope some of you are able to join me!  Again, while it is art themed you do NOT have to be an artist, this is for all skill levels and you can choose however much you would like to participate (or not).  The photography opportunities on this vacation are amazing, even just with an iPhone you can get fantastic images.  Or just bring your colouring books and colour along while I'm painting =)  I'll be staying in the same hotels, eating at the same table, sitting in the same van, etc. as you all (and Matty of course) so I'm looking at this as a great way to meet some of you in person, get to be friends and have a magical journey.

Check out Tourica Tours on Facebook or Instagram @touricatours ,or again, my brother-in-law Paul's photos from our last vacation Click HERE) to get a great sense of what we will see & do on this adventure!  We saw everything from wild penguins to lions, from Victoria Falls to the Cape of Good Hope.

XO Jasmine

Jasmine in Seattle & California, New Artwork, Perpetual Calendar, ACEOs and more!

Updates from Jasmine!

Big update today!

Firstly - we still have some of the free 20th Anniversary pins for the Strangeling.com giveaway!  We've already given out nearly half of them, so the sooner you can get an order in - the better (they will probably not last for the full month unfortunately, they are going fast!).  We are including a free "Time Flies" pin in each order over $25 placed at Strangeling.com for the month of July (or while supplies last, I made about 200 of the pins).

Next up - we are currently on our West Coast summer tour! TONIGHT I will be in Seattle for my appearance at the Insectarium group show at Eight and Sand Gallery (part of Georgetown's Art Atttack art walk) - details are here - I'll be there from 6-9pm tonight (Saturday) in person, details are here.  I have new original paintings (four full sized, two Tiny Treasures), prints and canvases there and I'm happy to autograph anything from the show or what you bring with you from home.

July 13, 14 & 15th I will be in Anaheim, California for Disney's D23 Expo, debuting my new "Princess Aurora" painting for Disney!  Details about the specific signing/autograph events & painting debut are here.

The evening of July 15 in Los Angeles, I have a new original painting  "Poissons Volants: Les Poissons Roses" debuting at the Corey Helford Gallery downtown.  It is part of the group show "Defying Gallery" - I am not "officially" doing a live autograph signing, but I will casually be dropping by for the opening that evening for at least a bit (just with friends to check out the show) - if you see me, say hi!  =)

We return July 17 from the west coast, so in the meantime if you place an order for an original painting or for a limited edition hand embellished canvas in the next week or two we will have a short delay (as I have to wait until I'm back in my studio to ship those personally!) - everything else though (prints, pins, books, etc.) will be shipping as always with no delay.

Next - I have a new painting to show you!  The piece I did for the Three Wishes Faery Festival is now available as prints & canvases (the original painting has been SOLD).  You can order those here at Strangeling.com (and remember, if you order more than $25 you'll get the FREE Time Flies anniversary pin!).

Speaking of original paintings, I have been working on several new ones for upcoming gallery shows and for DragonCon!  Check out my Instagram (ID: Strangeling) or Facebook here to see these works-in-progress.

Another new project I'm happy to announce is my PERPETUAL CALENDAR - an enormous project consisting of a perpetual calendar with 60+ tiles (including special event tiles for birthdays, seasons, etc. with my paintings on them) and 12 handpainted figurines - all on a specially-built calendar shelf.  Perpetual calendars can be used year after year, as you arrange the days of the week, holidays & date yourself with the tiles - super neat.  It is in the pre-order stage so it is currently first available to USA customers at the Bradford Exchange - you can order here.  Live outside the US?  Don't worry, after the release it will pop up at the international shipping site Burning Desires here later this year after the release for worldwide shipping anywhere on the globe.

And finally - ACEOs!  I have a bunch of new ACEO cards up for auction on eBay, each starting at literally one penny, each one will be popping up a different day this week while I'm out of town click here to see them all...... I will be back home in time to ship these out with no delay.

"Three Wishes"

Original Acrylic painting 12"x16" $4400 SOLD * Prints available here

Prints now available from $13.99 here - we ship WORLDWIDE. A special painting I created for the UK event - "Three Wishes Faery Festival" I attended a couple weeks back in Cornwall!  The original painting sold, but we have  many types of prints - 8x10" and 12x16" glossy photo paper prints on sale for $13.99 and $29.99 each - signed by me on the back, and we also have limited edition canvas prints (11"x14", wrapped on boards & ready to hang, hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed & numbered out of only 25 made) for $125. All are at my website here and on Amazon here and on Etsy here We also have them available in our eBay stores here

Jasmine's Perpetual Calendar

USA Customers can order now here

Another new project I'm happy to announce is my PERPETUAL CALENDAR - an enormous project consisting of a perpetual calendar with 60+ tiles (including special event tiles for birthdays, seasons, etc. with my paintings on them) and 12 handpainted figurines - all on a specially-built calendar shelf.

I'm very happy especially since this project "resurrected" many of the holiday figurine designs that we previously tested but hadn't made it into production yet - such as my Zombie Fairy (she's the October figurine!) and my Fourth of July fairy, etc.  Yay!

Perpetual calendars can be used year after year, as you arrange the days of the week, holidays & date yourself with the tiles - super neat.  It is in the pre-order stage so it is currently first available to USA customers at the Bradford Exchange - you can order here.  Live outside the US?  Don't worry, after the release it will pop up at the international shipping site Burning Desires here later this year after the release for worldwide shipping anywhere on the globe.

Happy 20th Anniversary!

Just a quick little update today, a larger update will come later this week ;)

Yes, it's July 2017 which means that it is the 20th Anniversary of Strangeling.com! Can you believe it?   Twenty years!

In celebration of this I have created a new collectible enamel pin called "Time Flies" (it sure does!) that we are GIVING AWAY to you guys as an anniversary gift!  Not for sale, exclusive to Strangeling.com = we are including a free "Time Flies" pin in each order over $25 placed at Strangeling.com for the month of July (or while supplies last, I made about 200 of the pins).

All you need to do is place an order for anything up at Strangeling.com between now and the end of July and we will pop one into your package before it ships! Click here to start shopping!

Just a few notes:

*It won't show up really in the shopping cart or anything, it will just manually be added by my sister Amber & my husband Matt when they are packaging up orders for the month of July.  So don't worry that it doesn't show it in the shopping cart, we will automatically be adding them when the order is being processed.

Jasmine at D23 Expo in Anaheim

I will be at Disney's D23 Expo this year in person to debut my new "Princess Aurora" Sleeping Beauty painting & prints! I will be doing three separate signing events:

Thursday July 13th- 11:30am- 2:30pm at the Dream Store Friday July 14th - 2:30pm- 4:00pm at Talent Central Saturday July 15th - 11:00am- 12:30pm at Talent Central

The D23 Expo is held at the Anaheim Convention Center right by Disneyland in California. Tickets are available here at Disney's website

more details at D23's official website here

Soon after D23 we will have the Princess Aurora prints & merchandise at the various other Disneyland & Disney World (CA and FL) locations, including my August 19 even at Disney Springs' Marketplace Co-Op in Florida.

If you can't come to D23 - don't worry California folks - I will be returning to Disneyland's WonderGround Gallery at Downtown Disney on October 27-29th for a THREE DAY Take Over event - yay!!

New ACEO Cards!

2.5x3.5" sized ONE of a kind canvas giclees, see them all here

For every original painting I do, I create one single ACEO card.  ACEO = Art Cards, Editions & Originals.  ACEOs are standardized 2.5x3.5" trading card sized pieces of artwork.  With mine, each is a tiny canvas giclee - I then go in with my acrylic paints & brushes painting fine details & embellishments, signing, dating & numbering out of only ONE (they are each numbered #1 of 1 because I only ever make one!).  I even do this with my rare paintings, mini paintings, etc. so often this is literally the only way to purchase that specific piece as a giclee.  Since they are so special and only one of a kind, to be fair to everybody I always auction them off, with bidding starting at a penny, so that everybody all over the world in any time zone has a whole week to peruse them and enter their bids.  I have several up now (and will be listing some more later this week) - click here to see them all!

Strangeling's 20th Anniversary - Free "Time Flies" Pin for all July Orders over $25

Happy 20th Anniversary!

Just a quick little update today, a larger update will come later this week ;)

Yes, it's July 2017 which means that it is the 20th Anniversary of Strangeling.com! Can you believe it?   Twenty years!

In celebration of this I have created a new collectible enamel pin called "Time Flies" (it sure does!) that we are GIVING AWAY to you guys as an anniversary gift!  Not for sale, exclusive to Strangeling.com = we are including a free "Time Flies" pin in each order over $25 placed at Strangeling.com for the month of July (or while supplies last, I made about 200 of the pins).

All you need to do is place an order for anything up at Strangeling.com between now and the end of July and we will pop one into your package before it ships! Click here to start shopping!

Just a few notes:

*It won't show up really in the shopping cart or anything, it will just manually be added by my sister Amber & my husband Matt when they are packaging up orders for the month of July.  So don't worry that it doesn't show it in the shopping cart, we will automatically be adding them when the order is being processed.

*If you order something that is back-ordered (I think most things are in stock now, but in case) we will set aside your pin for you for when your item comes back in stock.  You won't miss out!

*You can't buy a $25 gift certificate, it has to be physical merchandise.  However, if you already HAVE a gift certificate and use it to buy $25+ worth of stuff, you WILL get a free pin!
