Updates from Jasmine!

The BIG news of course is that it’s time for our Strangeling Sale!

It’s that time of year!  Our annual sale up at Strangeling.com – coupon code is THANKS2017 for 25% almost all prints, canvases, pins, etc.  From now until the end of CYBER Monday night (November 27).  Prints/Canvases are included here as well as my enamel pins here!   Important to note:
*
*Patreon 10+ level patrons can use BOTH their PATREON10 discount code ALSO to get 35% off (if you are buying a bunch of stuff, you might want to sign up at Patreon at least for this month, lol, you’ll save a ton and it’s just $10 for the discount level, sign up or upgrade here )

*Just about ALL my prints, canvases and pins are subject to the discount, and even any original paintings we have in stock at the website (the only exceptions are my Belle and Ariel prints, I think, as those are Disney, etc.)

*My friend Paul at StrangelingUK.com is also running 25% off with coupon code THANKS2017 so if you live in the UK OR if you live ANYWHERE else but want to order UK Exclusive items, check up there too (note: Patreon discount doesn’t work on StrangelingUK as that is owned/run by Paul, not me).

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  [email protected] 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 [email protected]  (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.

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 [email protected] 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-Griffith African 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 [email protected]  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 [email protected]  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 [email protected]  if you have any travel or tour related questions.

Please feel free to ask me (email me at [email protected] , don’t respond only to this mailing list update as I may not see it, just email me at [email protected] ) 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.
