LaLuzAPalooza - Sold Out

A big Thank You to my collectors for making this a Sold Out show for me. I hope I will be seeing lots of you at the show opening this Friday. La Luz always throws some of the best show openings, and I'm sure this one will be no different!
March is going to be a busy month, with shows opening March 2nd, 16th, 17th, and 24th. More info and details on those shows to come!
After that, I will be working on something big for October...more info soon....

La Luz De Jesus Gallery proudly rebrands our annual juried group exhibition, LALUZAPALOOZA. This gigantic, no-theme show features works from some of the freshest and most relevant artists working today. Over 9,000 submissions from commercial illustrators, graphic designers, tattooists, scenics, students, animators and working gallery artists had to be sorted-through, and we've finally narrowed it down to 125 or so artists. The official piece count is awaiting verification, but you can bet that it will be another (tastefully) jam-packed, salon-style exhibition. There are some familiar names from our ever-growing roster of feature artists, but an overwhelming percentage of the work comes from a brand new batch of undiscovered, emerging talent.

Please join us as we continue to support the latest and most original efforts from the nation's alternative art scene.

Hello my name is Jasmine, and I like to do drawerings......

Hello Cheeky Monkies!
Lately I've been in a drawing mood, which is kind of rare for me. I'm mostly in the 'rough sketch then paint it' camp, not spending too much time rendering out any particular drawings, but I've decided to do a couple of pieces for upcoming art shows as drawings only. So..
Do you want to see a progress shot of my drawering for the Gag Me With a Toon 4 show? Do you, do you? You do? Here it is!

It's called "The Passion of Evil-Lyn"
Apparently I remind some of my friends of Evil-Lyn, because after I showed this drawering to some of them, one of them sent me this:

hmmm, I guess there are way worse things you could remind people of...
For those of you who don't remember who Evil-Lyn is, "she is a villain from He-Man, she is Skeletor's second-in-command, although her loyalty is questionable. She is amongst the most intellectual & scheming of the He-Man show's villains."
Pretty cool lady all around. And she can sing!

Laluzapalooza - March 2nd

Laluzapalooza -Vol. XV of the Greatest Group Show on Earth- is nearly upon us, one of my favoristist most funnest shows of the year. Many of you are probably familiar with the 'Everything But The Kitschen Sync' annual shows that La Luz throws, well this is one in the same only with a schnazzy new name.
There will be, as always, an amazing array of art, booze, and an endless amount of interesting eccentric inebriated people to mingle with. Should make for a fun Friday night!!
So come out and throw back a couple beers (or glasses of wine) with us!

An Artists Portrait Series @ eloS

Thanks to everyone who came out for An Artists Portrait Series at eloS on Friday night. So many of you came out, honestly I think I might just have the best friends in the world. We had so much fun, and art, and shoes, and wine. Yes, lots of wine. Afterwards, Rich took took us out to Ebisu Sushi in Hillcrest, if you haven't been there check it out, it's amazing. One of the best places in San Diego for sushi. We had so much fun, and edamame, and sushi, and saki. Yes, lots of saki. We finished up the night at Hamiltons, where we again had lots of fun, and beer. Not as much beer. I really had to slow down at this point. I just can't keep up with the Cooker. I spent the vast majority of the next day recovering in bed. But it was worth it. So worth it. Rich and Kristen and Lisa and Paul are wonderful, and I am so happy to have been a part of their project.

Where To Be on February 10th...

San Diego, CA (February 10th, 2012) — Please join us Friday, February 10th, 2012 at 6pm when eloS shoes will present "An Artists Portrait Series", a broad-spectrum representation of San Diego artists shot by photographer Rich Cook. Each artist's portrait will be shown alongside works by each of the artists.

If you're local, keep an eye out for this Thursday's City Beat featuring a write up on Rich's show!!

From Rich Cook: "I had the pleasure of shooting portraits of each artist and my photos will be displayed next to a piece from each one of them. I am honored to be sharing the walls with some of my favorite, oh-so-extremely talented local artist friends. Each shoot was so different and fun and full of adventures. I have been wanting to do a project like this for a while and the timing couldn't be better. This year is off to a great start with a new website, new blog and new focus on my photography.

This is going to be a very special and fun night. eloS is a wonderful shoe store with great owners (Lisa and Paul) who are really involved in the community. I would love nothing more than to see all my friends come out and give some support. We will be having refreshments, and as a side note, Blind Lady Ale House is right next door so you can always pop in there for a pint as well! Photography, art, shoes, beer, something for everyone! Really look forward to seeing you there!"

Artists Include:Lindy Ivey, Jasmine Worth, Mike Maxwell, Niko Burke, Steve Saiz, Jimmy Ovadia, Nilo, and Kevin Peterson

I have some fun and unexpected news to share with you guys. My artwork was shown, oh so quickly, on Anthony Bourdain's show "The Layover"
I seriously had no idea, and my friend Kevin Peterson (who is s super awesome artist) texted me out of the blue last night to inform me that he just saw my art on Anthony Bourdain's show. No Freakin Way! So flattered.
Here is a screen shot of my super exciting 2 seconds of 'Layover' goodness:

And here is the video if you care to watch it. Don't blink or you'll miss it. seriously.
What a nice, unexpected treat for a Tuesday night.
