New Paintings for Bee Release August 4 on Etsy

It’s almost here! My Bee Release on Etsy is coming August 4th at 9AM PST and I couldn’t be happier! For this release I’ve teamed up with Planet Bee Foundation to raise funds towards sponsoring a brand new beehive for the School For The Arts in San Francisco. Planet Bee Foundation have been so amazing to work with already at our Save The Bees panel at San Diego Comic Con. If you haven’t read about them here yet, their Mission Statement is:

Planet Bee Foundation is a 501(c)3 environmental education nonprofit based in San Francisco. Their mission is to create a green-minded generation and inspire environmental stewardship through the teaching lens of the struggling honey bee and the power of individual action. Through their school programs, corporate teambuilding workshops, and public education, Planet Bee hopes more people will care for our environment and take action to have a positive impact on our interconnected world. To learn more about the work they do, visit here.

I had such an amazing time painting all my lovely fuzzy little bumblebees for release tomorrow. And I have more to share with you! Keep an eye open for these cuties joining the release.

Each bee is framed and one-of-a-kind. So if you have a favorite, I suggest trying to complete the checkout process right away. Items in the shopping cart on Etsy are not reserved, so the first person to check out completely will get their treasure of choice. Then if you make another order, my Etsy coordinator Asami can combine them for you.

I’m making Beekeeper hand-embellished prints a part of my Bee release too! These beauties are 12×16″ prints and come signed & numbered in an edition of 13pcs with 2 Artist Proofs available. They release on August 4th at 9AM PST here, so set your alarms!

I’ve made a handful of one-of-a-kind apparel and a bee collage towel for my Bee release! There’s only 1 of each and sizes are limited, so if you fall in love with one, don’t delay! The first 150 orders shipping inside the USA will also receive a Bentley wildflower seeds packet to plant and help bees in their area. So get ready for release on Etsy right here August 4th at 9AM PST!

New stickers and sticker sheets are releasing on Etsy too! You can choose between a big fuzzy 3″ Rainbow bee sticker, or a sticker sheet of lots of new pollinator friends! Pick yours up starting August 4th at 9AM PST here.

The Bee Release is Coming Aug 4th!

I have been busy as a bee creating lots of new artwork and lovely treasures for my big Bee release August 4th, 9AM PST on Etsy Here! This is an extra special release because I’ve partnered with Planet Bee Foundation and am fundraising to sponsor a brand new hive for the School For The Arts in San Francisco! Proceeds from my Bee Release Aug 4th will go towards making this new hive possible, and help educate students who also love art and helping the environment! Planet Bee Foundation is a 501(c)3 environmental education nonprofit based in San Francisco. Through their school programs, corporate teambuilding workshops, and public education, Planet Bee hopes more people will care for our environment and take action to have a positive impact on our interconnected world. To learn more about the work they do, visit here.

And by supporting my Bee Release, you can help your local bee populations too! My Etsy coordinator Asami will be adding bee conservation-approved Bentley wildflower seed packets to the first 150 orders shipping inside the USA. Different countries internationally have different rules about importing things like seeds, so these wildflower seeds can go to addresses inside the USA. But if you want to help bees in your area too, check out your local bee conservation organizations for info on how to help!

I have new signed and limited edition prints coming to Etsy Here on Aug 4th 9AM PST. There’ll be signed prints of Lemon Drop, The Beekeeper, Trinity and Alveare. And I’ve made hand-embellished limited edition fine art prints of Queen Beeatrice, Alveare, and Trinity too! I added metallic gold embellishments to each one, in limited and artist proof editions of between 2, 3, 8, 11 and 13pcs only. These beauties are made on heavy archival 300gsm Entrada paper and come signed & numbered, and are each embellished to give them a special personal touch!

The metallic gold paint really pops in the light! It’s amazing as a detail for the honeycombs and adding a touch of sparkly magic to the prints.

I’ve made a brand new collection of original bee paintings too! These little buzzy, bumbly beauties are between 2-4″ in size and come framed. I’m so inspired by bees, as primary pollinators in our natural world, I wanted to make them all different colors. Even a rainbow spectrum one!

I had loads of fun painting these little cuties, and I hope you love them as much as I do! Since they’re smaller petite paintings, they’re a great way for more types of collectors or fans who are new to collecting original art to get an original artwork in their own collections. Each petite bee painting is one-of-a-kind though, and small originals usually find homes quickly, so be sure to check here right at 9AM PST on August 4th.

Vintage plate fans, rejoice! I’ve made a wonderful selection of new bee-themed printed vintage plates together with my artisan plate printer at Beatup Creations featuring my bee themed artworks! There will be a variety of plate sizes and prices, from little petite saucer sized plates, up to big magnificent vintage plates. Each one is truly one-of-a-kind and no plate can be replicated twice, so if you fall in love with one, check right at 9AM PST release time here to add yours to your own hive!

Look at this lovely little family of rainbow bee printed saucers! I had 10 matching saucers and now each one is one-of-a-kind featuring its own rainbow bee. So even if an original oil painting isn’t in your future, you can bring one of my super colorful little bumble-buddies home in a different way as a one-of printed plate!

Handmade necklaces, one-of-a-kind totes, and one-of apparel are joining my Bee Release August 4th at 9AM PST! Each piece will have only 1 in stock, so check Etsy early Aug 4th at 9AM for the most selection.

Can you even bee-lieve this amazing towel?!

These scarves are amazing! You’re going to love them even more in person. Each one is handmade and hand-cut in Canada, and is machine washable on cold (they like to be hang dried!). Supporting local businesses is really important to me, so by collecting one-of and hand-made goodies like these scarves, you’re helping local and small businesses too! Proceeds of all my Bee Release goodies are going towards sponsoring a new bee hive with Planet Bee Foundation in the School For The Arts in San Francisco, and USA orders will receive a packet of bee-conservation approved wildflowers to plant and help their local bees while supplies last. So let’s join together spreading love, education and art in support of the bees August 4th 9AM PST right here!

Save The Bees With Art Panel

I’m teaming up with some amazing partners to present a totally unique and super fun panel this year at SDCC! On Friday July 21 from 2-3pm, you can come to my “Save The Bees With Art” panel in Room 2. I’m bringing coloring book pages for everyone from my book Pop Manga Coloring Book and some crayons for if you’d like to color along during the panel! I’m also bringing postcards of my Lemon Drop painting to give out to great question askers during the panel!

I’ll be joined by my friend and art colleague J*Ryu who will be moderating, and Planet Bee Foundation co-founder Debra Tomaszewski, who will be bringing goodies sponsored by Marin Bee Company to give out to great question askers. Planet Bee Foundation are my new partners in conservation efforts to educate and share art and help foster responsible eco-friendly stewardship for our bee populations! The panel will also feature a representative from Holbein, which is the company that makes my favorite Duo Aqua water soluble oil paints! They’ll be giving some Holbein paint samples out during the panel to good question askers too, so if you’ve wondered about how water-soluble oils work and how they’re environmentally friendly, this is a great time to ask!

I’m also returning to Holbein booth 5104 on Saturday, July 22, to do a live painting demonstration from 10-11am! I’ll be working on a brand new painting and demoing Holbein Duo Aqua water soluble oil paints, the same ones I use in my book Pop Painting!

Ollie The Frenchie Needs Our Help

OllieFrenchie1

Camilla loves French Bulldogs so, so much! Her charity art print fundraiser for French Bulldog Rescue was a big success, and her own Frenchie, Loki, is often by her side while she paints. So when she heard about Ollie, she knew we had to try and help!

Camilla and each of our d’Errico team members have donated to Ollie’s emergency surgery fund, and we want to share his situation with you in hopes you’ll help him get the treatment he needs. Love and support like yours has raised over 2500$ in 24hrs, and his surgery is almost fully funded, so please consider contributing here.

TriHart_sm

Camilla has imbued her love for Frenchies into her artwork, like her recent painting “TriHart” for Rotofugi Gallery’s 10th Anniversary Exhibition opening this Friday August 8th.
