Unseelie Court WAR Work in Progress

Work-in-progress – a piece debuting at – “Unseelie Court: War” – following my previous “Pestilence” piece from last show. The first four in the series are loosely based on the four horsemen of the apocalypse, and “War” of course combines a lot of war-based imagery, both past & present. This is an acrylic painting on panel, measuring 16″x20″, the original painting will debut at Dragon*Con’s Art Show (I’ll be there August 29 – September 1 Hyatt Regency Atlanta Grand Hall West) so those attending Dragon*Con will have the first dibs on her in person.  Details about the Dragon*Con Art Show are HERE

We are taking names for the “backup list” after the show if she’s not sold, so if you are interested in purchasing the original painting, email me at [email protected] with the subject line “Unseelie Court: War Original Painting”. She’ll be $5200 for DC attendees (it will be a bit higher to those after the show), with the prints & canvases (starting at $9.99) available at strangeling.com shortly after the show. “Death” and “Famine” will follow soon. ©Jasmine Becket-Griffith

New Stuff – big update today!


So much new stuff to show you today!
I have two brand new paintings (from my Stilleven and Tableaux Vivants series), a new Custom Painting opportunity up for sale, a work-in-progress sneak peek for another custom painting, yet another exciting Tarot project, and possibly the BEST news of all – we have now introduced  Open Edition Canvases to strangeling.com for all of the sold out canvases.  That means if you missed out on the Limited Editions, you can now buy an open edition of all your favourites, with a signed COA.  Be sure to scroll down to see all the new stuff!

“Stilleven VII:  Bloesem”

10×12 Original Painting $3300 SOLD Prints & Canvases are HERE


“Stilleven VII: Bloesem” is the seventh in a series of works I have planned that feature “deconstructed” elements of still lifes inspired by the Dutch master painters of the 1500-1600s, along with lovely girls, faeries & nymphs (of course!). Stilleven is Dutch for “Still Life” and “Bloesem” means “blossom”. A lot of beautiful flowers in this one (tulips, irises), some grapes, and a skull for vanitas – all popular elements included in famous Dutch still lifes. This is my own original acrylic painting, hand painted on panel. Original painting has sold, but we have prints & canvases available! You can choose between large or small signed glossy paper prints ($9.99-$19.99 on sale this week) or the 11″x13″ Hand Embellished Limited Edition Canvas Prints (ready-to-hang!) for $125 – using the drop-down box under the Fine Art Prints options here: Prints & Canvases</p>We are happy to ship worldwide!

“Tableaux Vivants II: Roger & Angelica”

12×16″ Original Painting $4500 SOLD , Prints & Canvases are HERE


The second in my “Tableaux Vivants” series (living pictures) – a surreal incorporation of my traditional female figurative portraits along with tiny magical scenes from historic or mythological imagery seemingly come to life. This painting is inspired by the 1819 Ingres painting of the knight Roger saving the princess Angelica from the sea monster (just saw it at the Louvre) with a rococo portrait – might be one of my favourites so far. The original has been sold, but the next best thing – the Limited Edition Canvas prints are now available for $125 each, hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed & numbered out of 25, wrapped on boards & ready-to-hang, 11×14″. These canvases can be purchased at Strangeling.com here (just select the Lt. Ed.

Strangeling T-Shirts

First Batch now up in our Etsy Store HERE

After several months of trying different methods, rigorous washing machine endurance tests, and my whole family pitching in, we’re pleased to announce that Strangeling T-Shirts are in the works!

I have long wanted a high quality t-shirt option for my work, and we have decided to produce them ourselves, at home, using a special dye-sublimation technique.  This is the method that works best and provides us with the best quality – the images hold up to our tough “washing machine test” (ie, putting them in the washer & dryer over & over again) without fading, cracking, etc. like some other methods, and we are very happy with it.

Very soon we will be implementing an option to place orders for tshirts in ALL SIZES (yes, plus sizes, kids’ sizes, extended sizes, juniors’ sizes, etc.), with options to choose all sorts of coloured shirts (black shirts, white shirts, tie-dyed and patterned shirts, – our sublimation transfer process works perfectly on all of them).  Prepare for an announcement soon when this is launched – it will mean that you can choose your own size, colour, etc. for whichever painting design you like!

In the meantime though, while we wait for incoming shirt stock and website-admin shenanigans,  we are listing a handful of these new shirts (our first finished batch of prototypes) in our Etsy store.  They are already selling fast, and I apologize in advance if we are already nearly sold out.  This initial batch is just our test-market of various sizes, shapes, colours & images – again, in the future at Strangeling.com we will be implementing a launch site where you can choose your own sizes, etc.  In the meantime check out what we have up on Etsy HERE – click on the “CLOTHING” link at the top left hand corner of the screen to find whatever shirts we have available!  (And check out all the other neat jewelry, prints & stuff too of course).

Disney Preview – “Tangled”

One of the paintings debuting at Disneyland’s WonderGround Gallery
for my July 12-13 Event – details HERE

Another Disney piece – Rapunzel from Tangled! Sneak-peek – a few hours away from finishing still – this is a piece for Disneyland’s WonderGround Gallery in California – I will be debuting her on July 12 & 13th – I’ll be there BOTH days this time (details about the event are HERE). I’ve had the joy of sorting through a lot of the original concept art from Disney’s “Tangled” going back several years, and as some of you Disney-scholars out there may know, part of the film’s aesthetic was based on Fragonard’s “The Swing” (obviously one of my favourites too).

This scene features the iconic image of Disney’s Rapunzel in a swing of her own hair, and of course the little chameleon Pascal is up in the branches 16×20 acrylic painting on panel, the original painting, prints & merchandise will be available at WonderGround Gallery.

These will be WonderGround Exclusives for purchase only from the gallery at Disneyland (and YES they are happy to ship WORLDWIDE via email or phone orders). Also the entire month of July WonderGround will be having a special “Artisan Showcase” fetauring a month long display of my non-Disney personal art as well (I’ll just be there in person on July 12-13 though, so try to stop by if you are in California that weekend!). ©Disney – licensed and used under contract.

eBay Options for Jasmine/Disney

Want to find my Disney stuff on eBay? Follow my Disney Collection HERE

I know that a lot of you are eBayers, and a lot of you are wanting to collect my Disney art & merchandise, so I have created a special “Jasmine/Disney eBay Collection” page on eBay HERE

Basically, my Disney art is only sold by Disney (whether it be at Disneyland, Disney World, the various Disney galleries, or Disney branded Hamilton Collection products, etc.).  As licensed/contracted work, I can’t make & sell them myself.  A lot of my Disney artwork & merchandise is exclusive to WonderGround Gallery out in California, and I myself am way down here in Florida, so I can’t really go grab stuff to re-sell myself either for fans.  But – a lot of people who DO live in California very helpfully regularly stop at the gallery at Disneyland to buy stuff to re-sell on eBay (yes, at a little increase in price, but hey – that’s what makes their travel time/costs worthwhile!).

Every day we scour eBay and gather together these auction listings to helpfully put them all in on eBay Collection page ( HERE) – so you can find all of this stuff in one spot.  These are all different sellers, they are not being sold by me, they all have different payment & shipping options, etc. – but they are all authentic Jasmine Becket-Griffith / Disney products.  If you bookmark or “Follow” the collection pagehere, you can see the new stuff as it comes out, updated with new auctions daily.

For those of you who do not use eBay, always remember that WonderGround Gallery is happy to ship worldwide, and they now take orders via email – [email protected]  – and telephone (714) 781-4565.
