Just a quick note – Jasmine is on her way to her London studio leaving Saturday (January 27th). All orders at Strangeling.com will be shipped & processed as normal, with the exception of the Strangeling Vinyl dolls and the hand embellished Limited Edition and Masterpiece Edition canvases (as they ship from Florida and require Jasmine to hand paint the details in person). Hand embellished Limited & Masterpiece Editions will be shipped after her return, February 5. All other items will ship as usual!
Updates from Jasmine!
Firstly – new stuff is happening at Disney! I’ve been appearing at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts and will be back for many more dates! Tomorrow (Saturday the 20th) I’ll be at Epcot’s “Pop Gallery Tent” from 5-7pm over by the Canada Pavilion, and next Friday (the 26th) I’ll be at Epcot’s “WonderGround Gallery” tent (over by the the France/Morocco Pavilions) from 5-7pm as well. I’ll be back for many other dates too – both tents always have my artwork (Disney stuff at WG, personal stuff at Pop) whether I’m there or not, in case you miss me. The Pop Gallery Tent has my new Strangeling Vinyl dolls, by the way, and the WonderGround Gallery Tent has my new URSULA prints & merch. Details and additional dates are on my Events Page here
Speaking of Strangeling Vinyl – we just got our huge shipment of “Alice in the Starry Night” inventory in, so if you pre-ordered your doll they are shipping NOW. If you were waiting for them to get in stock – we have them NOW so you can order worldwide (we ship anywhere) right here on my website today!
New paintings! I have four new paintings to show you! Two have sold, one is up for auction, and one is now available at a gallery!
We have a NEW enamel pin though this month! The January Pin of the Month – “Frost Dragonling” – available to the public for sale here! You can see all of the Strangeling Pins we’ve released so far together here. Or alternately you can sign up for the Pin Collector Club through my Patreon here and you will automatically receive Frost Dragonling along with the Patreon-only pin “The Scarecrow” 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!.
Finally – we have a couple of LAST CHANCE canvases – the final #5/5 Masterpiece Edition canvas of “Alice Through a Vermeer Glass” is up for auction here and the final #25/25 Limited Edition canvas of “Ninja Dragonlings” is up for auction here. All the limited/masterpiece editions are all gone other than these last ones up for auction, we do still have open editions available however.
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+
Updates from Jasmine!
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.
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 😉
