Original Sketch Card
Original Sketch Cards by Jasmine Becket-Griffith. Each is an original drawing, sketch, or study done with pencils, charcoal, ink, or pastels on a piece of archival 2.5″ x 3.5″ illustration board. These are not prints, but actual originals direct from Jasmine’s studio!
NOTE: You will receive a RANDOM sketch card. They truly are random and we are unable to process any special requests. Please refer to the product photos for examples — the first product image will be the most recent batch of sketch cards. When a series has been sold out, we’ll mark it on the gallery image.
We are very much encouraging collectors to TRADE their Sketch Cards — we suggest the Official Jasmine Becket-Griffith Collector’s Group on Facebook. Folks trade Strangeling pins there too, and many also trade pins for artwork and vice versa. You can also make friends up at Jasmine’s Patreon. So if you find yourself with a mermaid Sketch Card but have your eye on a dragon Sketch Card, hop up to Facebook or Patreon and trade! Your original Sketch Card will come in a plastic sleeve, they are the same size as a standard trading card (same size as Jasmine’s ACEO cards, but these are originals instead of giclée prints), like a Pokemon card. They fit easily into trading card binders, and are also suitable for framing — they fit into ACEO frames or any baseball card frame from the drugstore.
Sketch Cards may include favourite Strangeling characters, preparatory studies for upcoming paintings, concept artwork not available elsewhere, traditional and non-traditional holidays, and illustrations from Jasmine’s personal life and travels. They are the most affordable and space-saving way to collect an original artwork from Jasmine.
In lieu of names, each Sketch Card will be titled by year and sequence, starting with “Sketch Card Strangeling 2021 Series: 1” or “Sketch Card Strangeling 2022 Series: 7” etc. Titles are written on the back by Jasmine, signed and dated back & front. Each is an original artwork, not a print, and has been lightly sprayed with a fixative to prevent smearing (we recommend keeping these in the plastic sleeves or framing to avoid contact with moisture or skin oils as these are actual drawings on illustration board, not canvas).
Stay tuned for Jasmine’s next Sketch Card Series in 2022, and watch Patreon Lens for sneak previews as more are added and works-in-progress.
