New Customizable Prints Online

I’m back from Comicpalooza, and I’ve got big news! I’m changing things up with my ONLINE SHOPS! Now The Camilla Store on Bigcartel is my PRINT SHOP! Whohooo! I’ve set it up for you to be able to customize prints of my artwork, so that you can choose which image you want, the size you want, the paper you want, as well as if you would like it SIGNED or not. 😉

I know this is a wild turn for my prints but there are a few reasons why I’m doing this. For years, I’ve been traveling to conventions and offering con goers tons of variety of prints at different prices and papers, while making a super limited amount available online. I realize now that this isn’t fair to all those who can’t come to the shows, so I want to change that! I want to share my art library with everyone, not just those at conventions. 😉

I really respect your support for my artwork, so I want to honor that by being really honest with you about the other reason why I’m doing this.

Things are really different now than they used to be. It’s a lot more expensive nowadays to make and store a lots of prints, and that’s just the honest truth. I spend a lot of money to make the prints for everyone, especially when I get lots of comments that say “I want that as a print! Please make it!” So I do…but then not everyone who says they want, it buys it…. 🙁 It’s tough for an artist to see their supporters beg for prints on Social Media, then spend time and money making them, and lots of people who said they’d pick one up- don’t. Did you know the government taxes stock kept in inventory? That’s not fun, but it’s a reality of being an artist that you might not hear about. And, I totally understand, things come up and it’s not always possible to collect a new print.

SOooooooooo! I figure this new version of my Print Shop will be a better and more economical shop for you lovelies and for me too! You’ll get a LOT more of my images available and I don’t have to guess which images you want. YOU GET TO CHOOSE! Yay!

So I’m trying something new to give you guys more options for your budget and wall-space, by doing customizable prints! This way, you can pick your size and paper type on my Bigcartel here, and get your print made your way! This lets me offer a bigger library of print images, and I’ll be able to update it with new artwork too. I really hope you like it!

I’m excited and I hope you are too!

You guys have been so amazing in your support and enthusiasm for my Etsy shop, and deserve a big THANK YOU with all the rainbow squishes I have! My Etsy coordinator Asami has been having a blast getting to message with you and see your reviews, and work on making sure each order is packaged with love. That’s something I’ve wanted my Etsy to be about; hand-made, limited and special kinds of goodies that make their way from me to you. You are all ONE OF A KIND supporters and deserve all the love for allowing me to do what I love to do, which is bring art to the world!

I honestly love you all. You have no idea! I am SO LUCKY to have such wonderful people like you who cheer me on and support me. I hope you all have the most amazing day and if you want to email me and ask about this new shop please do! Email my main lady, Tasha aka my coordinator at info@camilladerrico.com. She’ll explain what the deal is, and Asami will also be available to chat through Etsy!

Because, fret not, my collectors! I’m still going to do Limited Edition and Exclusively Rare prints. But this new Print Shop is for all my open edition prints that are part of my convention and art library that I’ve released in person, just not online. So for all my rare and limited, one of a kind, items including closed edition prints you can still find them on my Etsy Here!

Big Squishes!!

Returning to Vancouver’s VanCaf 2017

Vancouverites! I’m coming back to Vancouver Comic Arts Festival (Vancaf!) next weekend, May 20-21! Vancaf is a FREE to attend event, and brings together tons of amazing small and independent comic creators. It’s an awesome way to find new stories, and support indie projects. I’ll be bringing copies of my passion-project, Tanpopo!

I’ll have copies of Volume 1 and 2 at my Vancaf table J1, along with my Rainbow Children artbooks and some of my How To instructional guides.

I’m also bringing some brand new prints! “Pop Goes The Weasel” will be available at my table J1, along with prints like “Angelica” and “Bettas on my Mind”.

If you can’t make it to Vancaf though, don’t worry! These lovelies are coming to The Camilla Store on Bigcartel starting May 15! There will be lots of wonderful new prints and choices for you lovelies there, so I hope you love it!

I’ll also be debuting new prints like “Minerva” and “Capuchina” at Vancaf, alongside some favorites like Dream Melt and La Capra. There will be lots to see, so come say Hi!

Goodies

I’m bringing enamel pins to Vancaf for the first time! They’re an amazing way to add some artwork to your outfits, and come with locking pin backings to keep them safe from falling off. My Gudetama inspired “Sunny Side Up” pins even have rainbow glitter in the bacon!

I’ve made some printed mugs for Vancaf! I can only bring a very few pieces though, so be sure to visit my Vancaf table J1 early to choose your favorite!

I’ll have some of my microfiber cleaning cloths at Vancaf table J1! These beauties are fully machine washable, and great for cleaning your glasses, phone, tablet, or other glass surfaces too!

Comicpalooza Opens Today!

I’m so excited to be here in Texas for the first time! Comicpalooza opens today at the George R Brown convention center in Houston, TX. My booth is #41 in the Publishers Pavillion, in front of the main exhibition hall entrance.

I’ve brought lots of goodies! Including one of a kind printed vintage plates, designer socks made with Todiefor Clothing, totebags, convention exclusive prints, goodies and more!

My artwork “Shipwrecked” is on this year’s Comicpalooza badges! So cool!

I snapped some fun photos from my hotel! Take a look at this mondo mama convention center.

And, of course, I leave rainy Vancouver BC and just bring all the rain with me to Houston! 😉 I’m the bringer of rain. Every time I visit California: it rains. Even in the summer. And now I can say the same about Texas! But that’s okay, I’ll be cozy and dry in the convention center at booth #41!

I’ve brought plenty of totebags and fun goodies to my booth! If you’re coming to the show, be sure to pick up my convention exclusive colorway of “The Baby Rebellion” print, I’ll sign it too!

Today is also my live painting panel from 4:30pm-5:30pm in room 371C! I’m working on a new painting, so come visit and we can chat, I’ll take Q&A, and talk about how I make my paintings.

Special Release Tonight on Etsy

If you can’t make it to Comicpalooza for “The Baby Rebellion” totebags, then fear not! I’m releasing a handful of them on The Camilla Store On Etsy tonight at 6pm PST. I’ll also be releasing the beautiful printed socks I take to conventions!

My Etsy goodies are often very low quantity or limited pieces (such as plates or graphite drawings) and can find homes really quickly! But, putting an item in the shopping cart doesn’t reserve it, so it’s possible it will get bought while you’re still shopping. So if there’s something you’re really excited to collect, try and checkout with it separately first. Then if you make a second order of less limited goodies, my Etsy coordinator Asami can work with you on combining the packages and postage if you send a message to TheCamillaStore on Etsy. 🙂

May The 4th Be With You Release Preview

It’s no secret that I love Star Wars! They’re some of my favorite movies, and I remember watching them over and over as a kid. How could I not?

So I’m celebrating my love for Star Wars this May 4th with new original artwork and goodies on my Etsy releasing 6PM PST!

I’m releasing a small run of totebags in 3 different designs inspired by some of my favorite Star Wars characters! These bags are double-sided, have a zipper at the top, and are machine washable to keep them nice and fresh! These beauties will go live at 6PM PST on May 4th, here.

Harietta Limited Edition Scarf & Prints

My painting image “Harietta” is releasing as a big, beautiful scarf! Only 50 pieces of these gorgeous girls were created, and they’re made of a super soft semi-sheer poly georgette fabric.

Each scarf measures 57×57″, and can be hand-washed and hung to dry, to keep them as fresh as a spring daisy! I’ll be releasing them at 9AM PST here, alongside prints of Harietta in 11×14″ and 16×20″ sizes.

Two new delightfully spring-y original framed graphite drawings release tomorrow! “Bunny-fu” (above) and “Tres Chique” are 5×7″ graphite and colored pencil drawings that will each be available Friday the 14th at 9AM PST here.

Vintage Plates

A collection of one-of-a-kind printed vintage plates releases tomorrow, April 14th on The Camilla Store on Etsy! I’ve carefully chosen each of these images to match the authentic vintage plate designs, in celebration of this weekend!

One-Of Totes

I have a special surprise for you! I’ve made one-of totebag designs in honor of my Good Friday release at 9am tomorrow on Etsy here! Each of these 16×16″ bags is double-sided and machine washable, and has a zipper! There’s 1 of each that will release tomorrow on Etsy, so grab your favorite fast!

Because of your support, over $400 was donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation! Thank you for making my first Women’s Day fundraising effort a big success!

Spring Releases are Live on Etsy

They’re here! My new Spring Releases and goodies from Emerald City Comic Con are now live on my Etsy shop! I’ve released a collection of 20 different and unique one-of-a-kind vintage plates. I carefully chose artworks to compliment each plate design, and make them all one-of-a-kind artworks!

Also releasing today are 3 original graphite drawings! Each one is 5×7″ and comes framed, and ready to display. You can find them here.

If you couldn’t make it to ECCC this year, I have a small number of Lovers Quarrel limited edition watches and The Sage fine art prints I signed and have available on my Etsy here! This is a limited printing, so once these are sold out, they won’t be made again. 😉

A lucky handful of Sailor Moon fans will have a chance to grab one of my Moonflower totebags! These beauties haven’t been available online until now, and may go quick, so snap yours up here!

New Releases Coming 20/3/17

Goodies are coming to my Etsy shop March 20th! I’m so excited to be releasing 3 original framed graphite drawings, “Pikaboo” (above), “Royal Soottress” (below) and my Lunar New Year inspired piece “Jiha”.

If you missed out on my last vintage plate release, I have a big beautiful new offering of vintage printed plates coming March 20th on my Etsy! Each plate is one-of-a-kind. They’re made on china or bone china vintage plates, and I’ve paired each image very thoughtfully to compliment the plate designs!

Some goodies from my Emerald City Comic Con booth are going live on my Etsy March 20! A handful of Limited Edition “Lover’s Quarrel” metal face wristwatches I made together with Modify Watches will go live at 6PM PST with all my other new releases! This edition is limited to 10 pieces worldwide, and won’t be re-made, so don’t miss out!

A small quantity of my totebags featuring Princess Serenity, Luna and Artemis, inspired by Sailor Moon, are releasing on my Etsy Mar 20 at 6pm PST! Only 15 pieces will be available, so set an alarm for release time!

If you weren’t able to make it to ECCC, I’m releasing the remaining prints of “The Sage” for online collectors! The Sage is the 3rd and final sister piece to my previous fine art print releases, The Frog Princess and The Enchantress. She’s an 11×14″ limited printing that I’ve hand-signed, so once the pieces online sell out, they won’t be made again! The Sage releases March 20 at 6pm PST here.

A small handful of my remaining convention release tshirts and tanks are going live March 20 at 6PM PST on my Etsy! These are all limited edition releases, with very few pieces and sizes available, so once they sell out, they’re gone forever!

Timed Release Prints to Honor International Womens Day

This International Women’s Day I’m celebrating by baring it all! I’m making my painting “Kitty Titties” available as an 11×17” signed print, and “Nips” is releasing for the very first time as a 12×12″ limited edition timed release print! From 12AM PST (Midnight) March 8th to 12PM March 10th you can collect these beauties in celebration of International Women’s Day from my eStore here!

If you’ve been following my art for any amount of time, whether it’s been a week, or for years, I hope you’ve noticed by now that I never set out to offend or put anyone down with my artwork. Life should be fun! We should be able to share art, laughter, and love. And these are the moments that brought “Kitty Titties” into the world via my paintbrush. She is a painting I made to keep in mind that when the world tries to come down on you- about your gender, or what or how you create, or who you are, you can push back and do it with a smile!

“Nips” is a painting I created in 2013 (for my “Spilled Milk” exhibition collection!), in response to years of pressure and criticism I received for depicting the nude female body in my artwork. “Nips” was my way of saying that being offended by painted breasts is as ridiculous as breasts lactating rainbows. North America often misconstrues nudity for sexuality, a belief I do not share. I grew up surrounded by European art culture through my Italian heritage and learned to appreciate how beautiful life and the human form can be whether that’s male and female, we are equal! So I’m sharing my contribution to Women’s Day as not just a female artist, or as a woman, but as a person who truly believes we must stand together in support of each other to reach equality and harmony. It’s time to free the nipple people, appreciate art for arts sake and see women and men as equals!

I hope you love these vibrant rainbow beauties as much as I loved painting them, and join me in support of Women’s Day! You can pick up one, or both, on my eStore here from March 8-10.  I’ll be donating a portion of the proceeds of “Nips” prints sold to support both the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and Breast Cancer Research Foundation. After the order period closes I’ll print and sign them, so keep an eye open for shipping updates a few weeks after the timed release closes!
