Jasmine’s on TWITCH! New Coloring (and Grayscale), New Paintings, Alice Oracle, BOOTS, Pins & more….

Updates from Jasmine!

Once again we have a record-breaking mailing list update.  So much exciting stuff has been happening.  Sit back, have some tea, and enjoy all the good news and pretty pictures =)

Firstly – I’m on TWITCH here!  We had a special “test episode” a few days ago for patrons, and my official first public broadcast will be this Sunday, April 8 at 5PM Eastern Time.  It’s free!  Many more details follow in this update below.  Basically you can watch me paint live from any computer or phone/device and chat with me & Matt while I work.  You can see the “test” episode here to get a good feel for it.  Effectively it is like “The Joy of Painting” but instead of Bob Ross you get me, lol.

I have new paintings to show you!  All of the originals have been (gasp!) SOLD, but prints & other good stuff are available for all of them.  A Dragonling Valentine,” Alice’s Prize,” and “Ursula” (available through Disney, details here and more info below in this update).

My “Alice:  The Wonderland Oracle” deck is coming out soon and is available for pre-order!  Worldwide you can order from Blue Angel Publishing here (they’ll get it in May).  USA Customers can order cheaply from Amazon here  (they say September).  BookDepository won’t get it until autumn but they offer free worldwide shipping here.  We’ll eventually have autographed copies later this year at Strangeling.com .  Even better – we are having  an autograph/release party on June 30 at Pop Gallery at Disney Springs here in Florida and will have the decks in stock for me to autograph there too!  Details about the event are here.

We have TONS of new coloring pages including GRAYSCALE coloring pages up at my Patreon!  These are all exclusive to my Patreon, not found in my coloring boosk, so they are completely different.  And yes – we have 13 grayscale designs (for those who prefer grayscale coloring pages already shaded) as well as 13 traditional lineart designs.  All for the $5 pledge here (if you are already a part of our coloring tier at Patreon you can see all the coloring pages, old & new and lineart & grayscale all here).  Basically whenever we release a lineart we’ll release a grayscale so everybody is happy, hehe =)

The good folks at Spooky Kook have just released two new lines of my merchandise – BOOTS (they look a lot like Doc Martens, that type of style, and are cruelty-free) with my artwork here (not all these are my designs as this link is just for the boots in general, but they have several) and also wooden bookmarks here– they are located in the UK but ship worldwide.

We have loads of collectible enamel pin news!  The new glow-in-the-dark Patreon Exclusive “Releasing Fireflies” can be seen here!  If you can sign up for the Pin Collector Club through my Patreon here and you  will automatically receive “Clockwork Dragonling” (almost finished!) along with the Patreon-only pin “Releasing Fireflies” 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!  We have also made our official MegaCon Event Page here with details about “Earth Angel,” “Orange Blossoms,” and “Venus” (the three MegaCon Exclusive Giveaway Pins).  Scroll down for more info.

Whew! – and that’s it!  Now scroll down to see it all!

Jasmine is now on Twitch!

First Official Broadcast Sunday April 8 at 5PM EST HERE

My first “official” Twitch paintcam broadcast goes live this Sunday at 5PM Eastern Time here:  https://www.twitch.tv/jasminebecketgriffith/    – please join me!  Twitch is free and everybody is welcome.  My username is:  JasmineBecketGriffith   (easy to remember!)

I’ll be painting live & chatting all evening.  We had a “soft opening” a couple days ago for my Patreon Patrons – it’s now available to the public if you’d like to  watch the archived video here!

Again, my first “official” broadcast is this Sunday at 5pm EST – bookmark it or “follow” me up there and check in at 5pm Eastern time this Sunday!  Not sure if I’ll be working on Monarch again or if I will have finished her by then and starting something new…..  we shall see 😉

Twitch is free, you can watch it either on your computer here –  or on any phone/tablet/device etc. with an App too (free App in the App Store).  You don’t have to sign up for anything to just go to the website & watch.  If you would like to join in on the chat room you can make an ID up there (it is still free), or you can just lurk and watch without talking or asking questions ;P

See you on Sunday!!!  Our official “grand opening” broadcast will be a bit snazzier with some light chamber music playing and Matt will have his own mic set up, etc. – the first night was mostly for us to figure out how the broadcasting worked and to have fun chatting with my Patrons =)

Tons of New Coloring Pages!

Patreon Exclusives – now also grayscale options!
Join Patreon here (already a Patron? Click here)

I’ve got a ton of new Patreon-Only Coloring Pages available to download!
New images includ: Mechanical Angel I, Heart of Nails, Kirin & Bakeneko, Guinevere Had Green Eyes, Flower Dragonling & more

In ADDITION to the traditional lineart formats we also now have GRAYSCALE TOO for each of my Patreon Coloring pages.  Only $5 gets you ALL the pages to download as much as you want, past and present, and you can always just join for one month if you want and download them all, lol (I recommend sticking around though, ‘cos Patreon is awesome).

If you’re already a 5+ Patreon Patron you can see ALL 13 (26 total, including Grayscale) Exclusive Coloring Pages here

If you haven’t signed up yet – just click the “Become a Patron” orange button here
you can begin downloading the coloring pages immediately.  There are other subscription tiers like the Patreon Pin Collector membership & tons of other stuff too, check it all out at my Patreon here.

What is grayscale?  Basically it is like a black & white photograph of a painting.  Instead of just the outlines (like a traditional line-art coloring book) a grayscale coloring page shows all the shading & depth of the original painting.  It’s great for transparent media like watercolours, acrylics, colored pencils, digital & more.  If you Google “grayscale coloring” you’ll find loads of groups & tutorials.  Don’t worry, we’re adding grayscale format in addition to our usual lineart formats, so it’s an extra bonus, not a replacement.  This way everybody is happy =)

“Ursula”

Original Acrylic painting 16″x20″ $7200 SOLD
Prints and merchandise available at Disney & worldwide online here!

My Ursula has popped up at Disney’s WonderGround Gallery! And there are also many ways for everybody worldwide to order her too, all the details are here – just keep reading =)

They have her as prints, postcards, limited edition framed canvas giclees, coffee mugs, and possibly other merch too.  I just paint the picture, I don’t sell them (Disney makes & sells all official Disney stuff).

If you live by Disney (assuming they don’t sell out earlier that day and need to re-stock, she is very popular and they can hardly keep her on the shelves!) you can find Disney’s WonderGround Gallery in Florida at Disney Springs at Disney World, and at Downtown Disney in California at Disneyland.

This is the painting I painted LIVE at my Take Over show a few months back at Disneyland =) The original acrylic painting was sold then, but now they have the prints & such – yay!

Can’t come to Disney in person? Don’t worry, there are many many options for folks WORLDWIDE for international shipping:

A. Order online via local third party Disney shopping services such as YourWDWStore here – basically they live near the parks, they pick up the merchandise and mail it WORLDWIDE. They have access to TONS of my Disney stuff and are very nice.

B. LOADS of Disney locals are selling them on eBay already. These are not me, these are just random people who buy stuff at the themeparks and re-sell on eBay. Usually they cost a bit more, and their own individual store polices may vary as far as shipping and payment options, but just go to eBay and search: JASMINE BECKET URSULA and you will find many things, mugs, limited edition framed canvases & more – all official ©Disney merchandise purchased from Disney and being re-sold or auctioned. Lazy? Click this link here and it will search automatically for ya!

C.  Also check the “Shop Disney Parks” App (download it free from the App Store) – she might be there (I have an old junky phone that isn’t fancy enough to get the app, or I’d check myself, lol).  It usually takes a while before new images pop up on the App though, or so people tell me.

Want your Ursula signed? The Lt. Ed. Canvas giclees have already been signed by me (Disney mails them to my house, I sign them, and then I mail them back to Disney HQ in California, and then Disney mails them back to Florida to the Gallery, lol).  So all Limited Edition Ursulas have already been signed by me.  Alternately – come to my April 21st OR my May 19th event at Disney Springs’ WonderGround Gallery at the Marketplace Co-Op! I’m happy to sign yours there, I’ll be there from 4-7pm those two Saturdays (I go there about once a month since I live nearby).

Alice:  The Wonderland Oracle

Pre-order on Amazon here (US) and Blue Angel here (worldwide)

I’m pleased to announce the upcoming publication of my “Alice:  The Wonderland Oracle” deck!  You can pre-order NOW (details below) or for you Florida folks alternately we’ll be having a release party for the deck at the Pop Gallery at Disney Springs on June 30 (details here)

As it’s published originally in Australia, they tend to get their stock in first at the publishers’ own webiste (Blue Angel) – you can pre-order worldwide here for MAY 2018 here or in the UK/International for September here , in the US here for September up at Amazon (for cheaper) here and soon we’ll have autographed copies at my Strangeling website (will be a lot more since I have to first buy them and ship to Florida and then ship to KS and then ship to customers, lol – but hey – they are autographed!) for worldwide shipping too. ESTIMATED shipping date is September 2018 – could vary on either side of that.

Again though, we’ll have the autograph party too at the Pop Gallery at Disney Springs June 30 and we’ll have a bunch of early copies in stock there.  In fact, if you want an early one that is autographed you can call/email Pop Gallery and they can reserve one for you either in person OR they can mail it worldwide after that night’s event 😉  Details here .

The entire oracle deck is Alice in Wonderland themed, featuring my artwork on ALL the cards, instructional booklet by the magnificent author Lucy Cavendish. I have been working on this for five years and am SO PROUD of how it turned out. Speaking of which – we’ll have a corresponding Alice in Wonderland Coloring Book in the works too! Both the coloring books and the oracle decks will be at bookstores worldwide, Book Depository, Books a Million, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, all the usual suspects, ANYWHERE in the world.

“Alice’s Prize”

Original Acrylic painting 4″x6″ $1300 SOLD
Prints available here

Prints now available from $13.99 here – we ship WORLDWIDE.

“Alice’s Prize ” – this is just a small illustration for one of the cards in my upcoming Alice in Wonderland Oracle Deck (the FINAL illustration!), but so many of my followers asked me to offer prints of her, so I’ve up-sized her a bit to make a lovely full sized print of her – turned out adorable. She is indeed the very last illustration for my “Alice in Wonderland” Oracle Deck – specifically for Card 13 – “Everybody has won, and all must have prizes!”

This is from the part of the book after the Caucus Race where Alice is presented her prize (a thimble!) by the Dodo! It has a subtle palette and a sort of “Hudson River School” style landscape in the distance. 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.

All are at my website here
and on Amazon here
and on Etsy here
We also have them available in our eBay stores (price may vary since shipping is included up there!)  here

“A Dragonling Valentine”

Original Acrylic painting 4″x6″ $1300 SOLD
Prints available here

Prints now available from $13.99 here – we ship WORLDWIDE.

“A Dragonling Valentine” – another little painting of mine, but I decided to offer prints of her based on demand, so I’ve up-sized her a bit to make a lovely full sized print of her – turned out super cute!

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.

All are at my website here
and on Amazon here

Boots & Bookmarks?  Yes, boots.

GORGEOUS high quality boots featuring several of my designs are up at SpookyKook – vegan friendly, super sturdy, licensed with my artwork =)

Click here to see!

(not all these are my designs as this link is just for the boots in general, but they have several)

Spooky Kook is a UK brand but they will ship WORLDWIDE (including the USA of course). Made from faux nubuck quarter, translucent raw rubber sole and breathable foamed insole. Faux-fur lined collar and faux-suede lining. Four designs! “Heart of Nails” as a greyscale design, “Heavenly Nightshade,” “Bringer of Lightning,” and “Mermaid with Cephalopods” in full colour – all turned out lovely =) Questions about ordering, shipping, sizing, paying, product questions, etc. – contact Spooky Kook at the link above.  So proud of these!

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.

dumbooctopusmermaidoriginalframedwebsitemonetmermaid
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.

SnowflakeFairyPhoto

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.

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 😉

Strangeling Annual Sale! Also – free Africa plane tickets available for Jasmine’s 2019 Art Safari!

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.

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 😉

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.
fofmonth090817
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!

Jasmine in Seattle & California, Free Pins, 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 (July 8)  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.
