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.  Pssst – if you are petite like me, don’t worry – I’m a USA size 2 and even though a UK size 8 is quite a bit larger than that, the flowing style & stretchability of the fabric still hangs nicely on us small-framed girls too, I bought a couple dresses for myself 😉

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.
