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

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.

Work in progress, trilobites

trilobitewip2014

Work-in-progress! This painting features one of my favourite creatures – trilobites! I collect their fossils, and enjoy painting pictures of them. This beauty loves them too – this painting is for another oracle deck project, this deck is all water-themed, being written by my two sisters Kachina Glenn and Amber Logan & being published by Blue Angel Publishing. This piece is definitely coming along nicely, but many hours still to go – I’ve only roughly painted in the trilobites and still have a lot of work to do on her hair & face – If you are interested in the original painting, contact me at [email protected] – I am taking names for the “first dibs” list for direct sale from me, the artist. This original painting is acrylics on an 16×8, panel, will come gallery cradled – 2″ deep wooden sided masonite panel, and will be priced at around the $3300 mark depending on how long it takes me to finish. Collector inquiries will be given preference based on chronological order of contact, please put the words “Original Painting Inquiry” in your subject line so we are sure to see it!

Hi everybody!  Just a quick head’s up to let you all know that Matt & Jasmine will be out of town through January 16th.   Most orders will ship out as usual, but orders with Limited Edition Canvas prints will have a delay of a few days (as Jasmine needs to hand paint them each individually they must wait until she returns home on the 16th).  Thank you all so much!

“Stilleven V: Roemer” – the fifth 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 faeries & nymphs (of course!). A “Roemer” refers to the wineglasses with the raspberry shaped prunts on the stems that are often featured prominently in Dutch paintings. A lot of fun details in this one, all popular elements included in famous Dutch still lifes. This is my own original acrylic painting, the original painting herself is sold, but I have prints, posters & other merchandise available!
