“Eve and Rib” sneak preview!

instagrameveandribwip
Work-in-progress! I’m working on the sequel to my “Strangeling” book, again featuring short stories – piece I’m painting now is an illustration for Matthew David Becket’s (my husband – here he is on Facebook ) short story (which will be published in the book, along again with stories by my sisters Kachina & Amber). The book will be out 2015 and is published by Blue Angel. This painting is called “Eve and Rib” – a clockwork fairy and her animated skeleton boyfriend in the forest – a lovely story indeed. The same characters appear in the book Matt recently finished (yet unpublished). This original painting is available for sale – if you are interested in purchasing it, email me at [email protected] with the subject line “Eve and Rib Original” – it is 12×16 acrylic on panel, will come in a spectacular ornate frame, and will be priced at $4400. Prints & canvases will be at strangeling.com soon!

More details about the Strangeling book will follow soon (and if you haven’t already gotten the first Strangeling art book, go get it HERE – deluxe hardcover version is at Amazon HERE and Strangeling.com too).

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

Tableaux Vivants I Work-in-Progress

tableauxvivants1wip1

Work-in-progress!  The first in a new series I’m working on called “Tableaux Vivants” (living pictures) – a surreal incorporation of my traditional female figurative portraits along with tiny magical scenes from historic or mythological imagery.  This first painting features the Triumph of Galatea with a rococo portrait – I really love how it’s turning out, got few more hours of work left.  She will debut at MegaCon (here in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center March 21-23, I’m at booth 814-816), is on a 12×16 panel going into super crazy ornate rococo frame – 27″x31″ external measurement – and will be priced at $4500.  If you are interested in the original painting, email me at [email protected] – preference will be given to MegaCon attendees but we are putting together a collectors’ inquiry list to contact if she remains unsold after the show.
