I am beyond thrilled to share that I am collaborating on this adorable painting and exclusive pin for MegaCon with Jasmine Becket-Griffith! Her Website is https://Strangeling.com and she's on Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/jasminebecketgriffith This is a 15+ years in the making art project! Jasmine & I have been talking about creating a painting together for that long & finally it's happening! :D
All of the details below are in Jasmine's own words about the sale of the original painting, the exclusive MegaCon pins, prints, cnavases, etc....
Work in Progress shot of a very unique and special painting that will be debuting at MegaCon this year, and will also be one of the THREE designs for the MegaCon Exclusive pins we'll be giving away! "Orange Blossoms" is a collaboration between myself and artist Carrie Hawks (aka TigerPixie - she's up here - Carrie Hawks ). The idea for this actually began incubating almost fifteen years ago, we've been friends and had been discussing a collaboration for quite awhile and finally we were both able to find the time to get this started!
We'll be debuting the original painting this year at MegaCon here in Orlando since we'll each have an art booth there! MegaCon is May 24-27 at the Orange County Convention Center (notice a theme here?) - details about the event are here: https://www.facebook.com/events/187173801886776/
It's a 14x11" original acrylic painting on panel, will be beautifully framed, and priced around the $3800 mark. Interested in purchasing the original painting? Email me at JasmineToad@aol.com with the subject line ORANGE BLOSSOMS ORIGINAL. We'll be taking down collector names in the order in which they are received. Please note - as this painting is a MegaCon debut, we do have to give preference to collectors attending the convention in person. If we still have the original painting available at the end of the show however we can then offer it via email worldwide, so even if you aren't able to attend - please email me and let me know you are interested and we'll contact you after the show!
This is also a very special painting for another reason - we are going to do a MegaCon Exclusive pin based on the design! Carrie creates enamel pins of the same size/format as my Strangeling pins, so we are collaborating on a special enamel pin as part of our Strangeling Pins lineup. On FRIDAY we'll have 100 to giveaway at MegaCon - 50 will be given away at my booth (free with any purchase) and 50 will be given away at Carrie's art booth (free with any purchase there). This might be a good way too to handle some of the initial rush/crowd control, since half will be at one booth and half at the other. We'll have a few leftover pins (hopefully) to give away randomly to our Patreon Pin Collectors too after the event =)
We will have prints & canvases of our "Orange Blossoms" painting at both my booth & at Carrie's booth at MegaCon. You're welcome to get one at the show and get us BOTH to sign your print - that should be extra special! After the show we'll each have the prints & canvases up on both of our respective websites available for purchase as well. Enjoy your sneak peek & all the news! XO Jasmine
