Work-in-Progress for Corey Helford Gallery

Corey Helford Gallery Work In Progress

Work-in-progress! A little farther along now – for a group show opening January 24 at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, CA. Most of the basic shading & sketching is all done now, I’m starting to lay in more small details and layers of colour. It’s a circular painting with a circus theme – called “Bosch Circus” for the show “Freaks & Americana”. This piece is inspired by the circus history in my own family (a troupe of aerialists from early last century known as the Flying Behees ) and of course some phantasmagorical animals and performers inspired by Hieronymus Bosch (from considerably earlier). This painting will debut at the opening reception at CHG Circa on January 24th from 7-10PM. Participating artists include: Kukula, Colin & Sas Christian, SHAG, Ron English, David Stoupakis, Michael Hussar, Tom Bagshaw, Yosuke Ueno, me of course, and many more wonderful artists. I probably won’t be able to make it out there in person for that evening, but definitely drop by if you can! This original painting is acrylics on panel, will be in a handcarved frame, and will be priced at $8200. Prints will also be available soon!

“Eve and Rib” sneak preview!

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 The same characters appear in the book Matt recently finished (yet unpublished).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

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.

Ariel – Little Mermaid – Work-in-Progress

 

partofyourworldwip1

Work-in-progress! Another new Disney painting, very early stages – featuring Ariel from The Little Mermaid – this time for the Pop Gallery & Bradford Exchange part of Disney. I’ve basically “sketched” (in brown, grey, black & white paint & water, with a very tiny brush) out the scene, mostly focusing on the details of the main characters – Ariel, Sebastian and Flounder. I’ve refined this “sketch” in paint several times, covering up what I don’t want with opaque paint, strengthening lines I do want in darker paint. Now I’m starting to lay in washes of watered layers of colour, mostly for myself just to figure out where I’m going with the colour palette & figuring out my light source (mostly coming in from the top down through the grotto underwatr), etc. I’ve done a bit of shading on Ariel, but nothing much more than that. Many more hours to go, I’ll post another work-in-progress pic later. This is one of the pieces that will debut at my May 3rd event at Pop Gallery Orlando here at Downtown Disney in Florida! The original painting & giclees will be available at Pop Gallery, giclees & other merchandise will also be available online & through the Hamilton Collection/Bradford Exchange. This is an original acrylic painting, 16×20, will be in a big gorgeous ornate frame and priced at $6400 – if you are interested in purchasing the original please contact Pop Gallery at [email protected] or call them at: 407-827-8200 and ask to be put on the Jasmine VIP List for “Part of Your World” – Jasmine’s Little Mermaid painting. Licensed & ©Disney.

Work in progress – Stilleven VI

stilleven6wip

Work-in-progress! Finishing touches on the sixth painting in my series called “Stilleven” (Dutch word for “Still Life”) – intended for an upcoming show. My Stilleven series all feature “deconstructed” elements of still lifes inspired by the Dutch master painters of the 1500-1600s, along with faeries & nymphs (of course!) If you are interested in reserving the original painting, email me at [email protected] and inquiries will be indexed according to the order of response. This one is BIG and is going into a magnificent baroque frame with external measurments of 40″x36″ $7200 price. More info about the show later 😉 I will also have prints, posters & canvas prints at strangeling.com soon.

Work-in-progress – Snow White and Rose Red

snowwhiteandrosered2014WIP

Work-in-progress! This painting – “Snow White and Rose Red” is for my long-awaited Fairytale Oracle deck project with Lucy Cavendish & Blue Angel Publishing. As Snow White and Rose Red is about two peasant girls, this is intentionally a nod to William Bouguereau, 1800s French painter who is the master of peasant-girl paintings, hehe. These two sisters are shown early in the story (not to be confused with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs – a completely unrelated story of a character with a similarly translated name, ahem), Snow White will have light clothing and hair, Rose Red will have darker, redder colours, and this will correspond with their two forest friends – a cardinal bird and a chickadee! Still many, many hours of work left.
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 a 16×20, panel, will come in a nice woodsy frame, and will be priced at around the $6000 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!

 

Work-in-progress “Red Mask”

redmaskwip

 

Work-in-progress! This painting – “Red Mask” is for an upcoming group show at the Eight And Sand Gallery in Seattle, WA – the theme of the show is “Red”, and I’m just now working on the bright RED facepaint mask of this lovely girl. Still got several hours of work to do on this one, but she is coming along nicely. The “Red” show will run from February 8-March 9 at Eight and Sand Gallery in Georgetown, Seattle. If you are interested in the original painting, contact the curator Alex at [email protected] – let her know you are interested in being on contact list for “Red Mask” by Jasmine Becket-Griffith. This original painting is acrylics on an 8×10 oval, will be in a silver frame and will be priced at $2200. While I won’t be able to attend the show opening in person unfortunately, I will however be coming to Seattle on February 21-23 for FaerieCon West, so if you are in the area definitely check out both events!
