 Soon she’ll also be re-stocked too at DisneyStore.com along with the new “Ariel” and “The Bride Returns” prints & canvases, etc.  I’ll let you all know when they pop up, in the meantime you can find them all at Disney’s WonderGround Galleries.

Tomorrow – I will be at “our” Disney Springs Saturday March 11 (tomorrow) at the Pop Gallery from 6-9pm!  We are launching my new Creativity Journal and I’ll have tons of other artwork there too.  Why not come early to Disney Springs and also hit the WonderGround Gallery at the Co-Op, get some new Disney stuff, bring it by Pop Gallery and I can sign those too while you’re at it!  Again, tomorrow I’m at POP GALLERY – details here.  (Also on April 15 I’ll be at our Florida WonderGround Gallery at the Co-Op again too, in case you miss out tomorrow!).

Kansas City people – my booth is at Naka-Kon this weekend!  Not me in person (I am at Disney World obviously and cannot bi-locate)  but my sister Amber will be running our booth at Naka-Kon at the Overland Park Convention Center all weekend long full of my signed artwork, prints, coloring books, oracle cards, books, merchandise, jewelry & more.  If you are in KC please GO there, it’s one of the best events in town.  Strangeling:  The Art of Jasmine Becket-Griffith is the name of the booth, make sure my sister Amber isn’t slacking!  😉

I have a new painting to show you – “The Offering I” is her name!  You can see her here – the original painting has been sold but we have prints & canvases available =)

One of my favourite paintings- “Loup-Garou:  Blanche Neige” is this week’s sale print!  Only $9.99 for prints, open edition canvases only $90 this week here!

New skins & cases & decals for phones, video games & other devices are now available from DecalGirl – check those out here!

And again, my first ever Vinylmation doll was released this week from Disney.  Featuring “The Bride Returns” from the Haunted Mansion – she is now available at the Disney parks & galleries.  If you can’t come in person, the online retailer YourWDW store here (click and then scroll down near the bottom) has them in stock.  They live locally and can ship worldwide, including internationally.  And again – the two new prints (the Bride Returns print & Ariel print) will be online soon, I keep checking every day!  They are all at Disney’s WonderGround Galleries

Who loves Vermeer?  I love Vermeer!  My next painting for the Corey Helford Gallery is my interpretation of the Girl with the Pearl Earring.  I am in the middle of working on her – check out my Instagram ( Strangeling ) or Facebook (Strangeling) or scroll down to see her in progress!  If anybody is interested in the original, please email Jan directly at [email protected]

DragonCon, Last Chance on MANY Ltd Ed Canvases, KC Renfest, ACEOs and more!

Updates from Jasmine!

Lots of exciting stuff going on around here (and elsewhere….)

Firstly, I’m getting ready to leave for DRAGON*CON!  PLEASE NOTE We’re packing up now to begin the long journey.  Strangeling.com and our eBay/Etsy/etc. will remain up & running as usual, but for hand painted artwork there will be a bit of a delay (we return from Atlanta on September 8, our next shipping day September 9).  I am in the DragonCon Art Show at the Hyatt Regency Grand Hall WEST (same spot as always in the ART SHOW, NOT the comic art section next door, this always confuses people).  More details are below and even more details are on my event page here

Kansas City folks!  The KC Renfest starts September 5th!  Details are on my event page here .  My permanent gallery will be open every day at the Renfest for the entire season, and I myself will be there in person the last week of September and the first week of October (and I’ll be painting!).

In other news – I have some new ACEO cards up for sale (including the elusive Rhapsody in Pink – other than the ACEO there are absolutely no prints, no canvases, no merchandise of her whatsoever – just the ACEO card alone!).  Click here to see the new ACEO cards.

Now some very important stuff – many of our Limited Edition Canvases are running out.  Many have now completely sold out.  With all the sales, conventions, festivals and fairs lately we have been selling the Lt. Ed. canvas prints like never before.  I know I usually try to alert you when canvases are running low, but sometimes they sneak up on us (and sometimes stores/galleries place wholesale orders which can sometimes clear out an entire edition).  We currently have several “LAST CHANCE” Limited Edition Canvas auctions for the #25/25 (or #5/5 for Masterpiece Editions) last Lt. Ed. Canvases in each edition.  These are truly the last chances you’ll ever have for these, no more will ever be made.  Click HERE to see the last chance you’ll have for “Sanura,” “Stilleven IX: Vissen,” “Waterlily,” “Hope and Despair,” Pearl Swirl Mermaid,”  Some of these are ENDING TONIGHT so hop in there if you don’t want to miss out forever.  Scroll down in this update for head’s up on other canvases that are running low, endangered, etc.

Work-in-Progress for Corey Helford Gallery

Corey Helford Gallery Work In Progress

Work-in-progress! A little farther along now – for a group show opening January 24 at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, CA. Most of the basic shading & sketching is all done now, I’m starting to lay in more small details and layers of colour. It’s a circular painting with a circus theme – called “Bosch Circus” for the show “Freaks & Americana”. This piece is inspired by the circus history in my own family (a troupe of aerialists from early last century known as the Flying Behees ) and of course some phantasmagorical animals and performers inspired by Hieronymus Bosch (from considerably earlier). This painting will debut at the opening reception at CHG Circa on January 24th from 7-10PM. Participating artists include: Kukula, Colin & Sas Christian, SHAG, Ron English, David Stoupakis, Michael Hussar, Tom Bagshaw, Yosuke Ueno, me of course, and many more wonderful artists. I probably won’t be able to make it out there in person for that evening, but definitely drop by if you can! This original painting is acrylics on panel, will be in a handcarved frame, and will be priced at $8200. Prints will also be available soon!
