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!

Coming March 15 New Online Class With Creativebug

I’ve got something exciting coming soon! On March 15th I’m releasing my first online instructional class with Creativebug on How To Draw Manga Faces! I filmed with the Creativebug team in a beautiful, professional set with amazing equipment, and show you step-by-step how to draw in manga style using tools like non-repro blue pencil, and pen & ink. You can sign up to watch the lesson online here for when it goes live March 15!

Paintings in Progress for Submerged Exhibition Dorothy Circus Gallery

 

Camilla has been a creative powderkeg for her upcoming “Submerged” exhibition! The show opens March 31th at Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome, Italy. Here’s a look at what Camilla has been working on.

 

Some completed artworks have already been revealed! Camilla’s piece “Ajna” is an oil on wood panel painting measuring 12×12″.

Ajna and sister pieces from “Submerged” are Camilla’s first forays into full monochrome painting elements. Camilla shares some thoughts and feelings behind Ajna’s creation:
This painting is all about human perception and our role in nature. I believe we are as much as part of the earth as all the other fauna and animals, yet we don’t always see it. We need to open our third eye and truly appreciate what we are a part of and how we affect the planet.  The colors of her eyes are secondary colors because we tend to put the earth’s life second to our needs.  I believe human beings are amazing and capable of so much. Our greatest assets are compassion and intelligence which is why I wanted to show so much emotion in her. Earth is a beautiful world that is rich in color and life that should be treasured!

“Capuchina” joins the collection for Camilla’s “Submerged” exhibition! Capuchina is an 8×10″ oil on wood panel painting. It’s been some time since Camilla incorporated painting skulls into the composition of her artworks! Long time Camilla fans may remember skulls appearing in Camilla’s “Vain Remains” collection of 2009.

New Paintings For Submerged Exhibition at Dorothy Circus Gallery

Camilla has been painting up a storm for her new “Submerged” Exhibition opening at Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome, March 31th! Camilla has a collection of 6 new paintings underway. Let’s take a look at some of their progress.

This new painting, “Fishbowl”, includes Camilla’s first ever Seabunny to appear in one of her paintings! Have you seen Seabunnies before? Google them! You won’t regret it!

We can see clues on Camilla’s palette that she was working on “Ajna”. Camilla and Dorothy Circus Gallery revealed the final image for Ajna recently. Camilla shares some thoughts about “Ajna”:
This painting is all about human perception and our role in nature. I believe we are as much as part of the earth as all the other fauna and animals, yet we don’t always see it. We need to open our third eye and truly appreciate what we are a part of and how we affect the planet.  The colors of her eyes are secondary colors because we tend to put the earth’s life second to our needs.  I believe human beings are amazing and capable of so much. Our greatest assets are compassion and intelligence which is why I wanted to show so much emotion in her. Earth is a beautiful world that is rich in color and life that should be treasured!

Camilla’s painting “Capuchina” has been revealed! These colorful skulls are a playful take on a usually macabre subject.

Camilla will be unveiling a new,  large size oil painting, “La Madre” for Submerged exhibition. This piece measures 20×24″, larger than many of Camilla’s contemporary artworks. She will be a show-stopper for sure!

Keep an eye on Camilla’s social media @camilladerrico #camilladerrico and here on the blog for more updates as artworks develop for Submerged at Dorothy Circus Gallery March 31! Are you a collector interested in acquiring an original from Submered? Drop us a line at info@camilladerrico.com
