Prints

I’m bringing lots of new prints to Calgary Expo tables P25-26! I’ll have prints of “Bonnie Bonnet” here and “Sunkisses” and “Polina” from my new solo exhibition. I’m even bringing a few big 16×20″ size prints! But I’ll only have 1ea image of those ones, so come see me early in the show for the most selection!

Unleash the bees! I’m bringing petite bee prints too, along with a new hand-embellished Calgary exclusive limited edition release of my Spirited Away print.

I’ll also have prints that are new to Calgary like The Last Unicorn, Foxy Lady, Marlena and more! Most of my prints are made and ship from the USA so this is a super time to add prints to your collection from my tables at the expo and save on shipping!

I’m bringing a very few printed vintage plates to Calgary Expo! Each one is one-of-a-kind and I only have 4 for the show, so come visit my tables P25-26 early before they all find homes!

I’m bringing my new Liveheroes clothing collection pieces to Calgary Expo! They’re all hand-made in Poland with lots of love, and the hoodies and sweaters are so soft inside- they’re amazing! Since they’re all hand-made though, I only have 1-2 each design and size, so come to my table P25-26 early in the show before they’re all gone!

Remember these?? I’m bringing some handbags to Calgary! There will be new designs too, and different sizes for purses, handbags and totes! Quantities are super limited though, so if you fall in love with one, don’t wait to collect yours! And if you can’t make it to the show, you can subscribe to my newsletter here for future online release info.

Check it out guys! I made new hard enamel pins and I’m bringing some to Calgary Expo! You can collect a new glittery fuzzy Bee, or new glitter Rainbuns pin! I’ll also have new folding paper fans like these fuzzy Rainbow Bee and The Last Unicorn ones!

And Books! You’ll be able to pick up copies of my Femina & Fauna Version 2.0 artbook for the first time at Calgary Expo, along with my Pop Manga Coloring Book. I’m happy to sign em for ya too, just ask!

There will be new printed vintage plates,  prints, handmade jewelry like brooches, necklaces and hairpins, and possibly original artworks!

Thank You ECCC 2018!

A big thank you to Dark Horse Comics for having me for a signing and making these awesome Femina & Fauna posters! Between both Dark Horse and I we totally sold out of copies of Femina at the show, but I made sure to sign every one I could!

My original painting “Albinow Rhinow” found a new home on the first day of the show and turned lots of heads walking by the booth! You can get a print of this fabulous rhino here on my custom print shop now!

So I may have broke the internet just a little by showing off my handbags I had at my ECCC booth. They sold out by Friday morning but I’ll make some for Etsy so be sure to sign up for release details on my newsletter here. I’ll have them at my C2E2 booth 1182 April 6-8 too!

If you’re in the Vancouver BC area and would like an invite for my 11am or 5pm Feb 10th event just email info@camilladerrico.com !  Here’s some photos of how I decorated it last year for love-day.

Flat Rate and Lower Shipping on Orders!

I have good news! After a little persuasion (Ok, I begged a lot) I found a way to LOWER shipping on my Etsy and Print Shop! Now you lovelies can get prints for only $5 flat rate shipping and letter mailing option on Sticker orders in the USA! I was also able to lower International shipping too to $10 and $15  And did I mention that’s combined shipping on Etsy  I know postage can be a bummer. It’s like fighting a zombie hoard of rising shipping costs, with both my eStore generals telling me we’re surrounded.  But I channeled my inner Captain Picard and said “Make it so!” Because I really love being able to share my art with so many of you all over the world! I work hard to make ordering it as great as I can! Your support means the world to me and I hope you love all the art I have for ya on Etsy here and my Custom Print Shop here!

Happy New Year! A look back at 2017

Here’s MY personal Best Nine of 2017. 🎉 This year has been a crazy, unexpected whirlwind! Especially for me creatively. So I wanted to look back and choose 9 pics from my feed that I think made a mark on me as an artist. 🖌 It’s important to look back to see how we grow and change and take notes for the future. This year I expressed many sides of my personality, the fun side with my fuzzbutt bees, 🐝 the environmental side with the 3 eyed Ajna, 🌍 the ridiculous side with my zombees. 💀 I opened up in ways I hadn’t before, like sharing my fan fiction art through Patreon (Bethyl forever!), deciding to channel love over hate with my new @coreyhelfordgallery show “Sky”. I pushed myself technically with “La Madre” one of my biggest most intricate paintings to date, I painted a boy, “Dorian Grey” mixing rainbows and literature, 🌈📖 I spent a year completing my rainbow fox, and I brought my love of doll furniture together with my love of custom toys! I published my first ever online comic “Davinchibi” and launched my Etsy with the help of Asami! Tasha, my amazing coordinator knocked it out of the Park this year! She helped me build my Patreon and so much more. 🙌 I did things this year that I hadn’t done before, traveled more than ever and took creative risks. It hasn’t been an easy year, I think many can relate.😌 This year forced me to push myself to work harder and deal with tragedies. 2017 almost felt apocalyptic. Hate surfaced in ways I didn’t expect and it hurt my heart so gravely that I changed my entire direction for my solo show for Corey Helford next year. I decided to take a stand for my beliefs that ALL humans are equal.💖 I want my art to inspire and heal, to bring people together, to spread love. I hope that I’ve brought smiles to your faces and been there through the hard times. My new motto is “Love over Hate”.💞 I have some big plans for next year, I talk about them here on my new Huffington Post interview. You can read it here!  Now that the year is ending it’s time to look forward to what we can accomplish in 2018! 😊 Stay strong and let your freak flag fly my lovelies!! I can’t thank you enough for all your likes and comments and support. You make me so happy! 😁 I want to wish you the Happiest New Years ever! Let’s celebrate with love! Big hugs and all my best!

Preview Boxing Week Releases

It’s finally snowing here in Vancouver! It puts me in such a wintery mood, I love it! So I wanted to share a sneak peek at more of the fun goodies and new releases I have coming to Etsy on Dec 26th, 9am PST.

There’s going to be hand-painted designer toys like these little cuties. They’re Kathie Olivas Wandering Misfit toys I’ve hand-painted and made into little characters. Each piece tells a story! They’re a fun way to make an original artwork a part of your collection, but there’s only 1 of each, so check right at 9AM PST during release Dec26 here!

I’ve made fun seasonal sets of postcards and buttons! My postcard set is holiday and festive type images, including some inspired by some of my favorite holiday movies. It was my first time drawing Charlie Brown as a chibi, but I think he came out looking super cute!

These wintery button sets are so fun! They’re 1″ buttons and each set has 4 images. I made a limited amount of them though, so pick one up when they release on Etsy Dec 26 starting 9AM PST!

Buttons aren’t the only things I’ve been making this season! Something about the nippy weather gets me so energized to create! I’ve made brooches, necklaces and rings that are each one-of-a-kind and going to release on Etsy Dec 26 at 9AM PST. Since they’s only 1 of each, if you fall in love with a design, don’t sleep on it! My one-of jewellery usually find homes pretty fast so pick your favorites and add some wearable art to your collection!

Speaking of wearable art! Check out these magnificent looking hoddies and sweatshirts from my official collection with Liveheroes! They’re so soft inside, it’s unbelievable. You have to feel it! I’m going to have a variety of designs and sizes launch Dec 26 at 9AM PST

And beanies too! Look at those big floofy white poofs! These beanies are double-lined so they’re warm and soft, perfect for cold weather! There’s only a few of each though, so don’t miss out when they release Dec 26 at 9AM pst here!

I’ve got sale prices coming to both Etsy and my Custom Print Shop Dec 26-30 too! So if you’ve had your eye on a special print, or hard enamel pins like Sir Reginald, you can find them at special holiday prices.

Prints on Etsy will show on a sale price from Dec 26-30, and you can get 25% off all custom prints on my Custom Print Shop here with the code BOXING17 It’s my first time making custom prints on sale, so if you’ve always wanted to pick up some for your collection, Dec 26-30 is a great time!

That’s not all the fun I have in store for Dec 26! When you order from Dec26-30 I have some fun goodies and bonus thank yous for orders! Orders valued $10+ before shipping get an Oh Deery button I made especially for boxing week while supplies last. And if you order $75+ before shipping, you’ll also get a signed 5×7″ print of “Bad Madeline”!

I’ve also got other surprises for orders like Mr. Velvedeer postcards that will go in to orders at random, and new seasonal stickers to add to orders as a bonus Thank You for your support! It’s a lot to take in but set your alarms and keep your eyes peeled on The Camilla Store on Etsy here for release Dec 26, 12PM PST!
