Strangeling Vinyl : Coming January 2018

strangelingvinylteaser

 

I know my Patreon Patrons already know this, but for everybody else here’s a teaser – we are launching “Strangeling VINYL” this coming January! A whole new way to collect my artwork as vinyl toys. Estimated price will be $34.99, each is handpainted, will be available worldwide from Strangeling.com and various other sites, including the Pop Gallery at Disney Springs (they should have them in time for the Epcot event too!). I am super excited for these, we’ve been working nonstop on these (for behind the scenes details check my Patreon) – the first release will be “Alice in the Starry Night!” Ages 3+

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 😉

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.

XO

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 😉

More Patreon news – I’m giving my Patrons a free BONUS coloring page “Fruit Dragonling” as a Thanksgiving Gift this week (probably tomorrow!) along with the Ninja Dragonlings coloring page this month.  My coloring pages are Exclusive to Patreon (not found anywhere else), downloadable/printable, 1-2 new ones per month, and 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.

My Butterfly Virtues figurine collection is now available worldwide and you can see actual PHOTOS (not just the concept art) popping up!  See below for details.  USA customers can order the collection now, immediate shipment as they are in stock here.  Live outside the US?  Burning Desires here has started offering the first couple in the series at their page here for worldwide shipping.
*******
Do you love beautiful handmade ink pens?  I do!  So does Michelle, the artist behind “Innovations in Ink” – she has licensed many of my paintings to put on her handmade artisanal ink pens and you can see them here .  You can also see & purchase them in person at the Pop Gallery at Disney Springs – they really must be seen in person to be appreciated (the ones at Pop Gallery actually contain my physical signature on a panel inside the pen itself – so neat!).
*******
Again – the entry deadline for my Original Custom Painting is 8pm Wednesday night, Eastern Time.  All tiers and all members of my Patreon page here will automatically be entered literally up to the very last second at 8pm, so get up there if you can!
