Studio Sneak Peek And Upcoming Events

I’m so excited to show you guys my studio! After months of renovations, it’s all been worth it. This is my sanctuary. My creative safe-haven!  I’m so in love with how everything came together, and how creatively energizing it is to have a dedicated place to channel all my creativity!

Let me give you the tour! This is my computer workstation where I have a Wacom Cintiq touchscreen. These babies are amazing for Photoshop. Highly recommended!

It’s really important to me as a creative and an artist to support my fellow artists and creative friends, so I have a library and collection of books, artworks, toys and other things to creatively energize me through the day! It’s so lovely to be able to have a cup of tea and look through an artbook, or listen to one of my audiobooks surrounded by beautiful things other artists made with love, while I create my own paintings!

Speaking of what I love- look at this little nugget! Loki loves the patio outside my studio, and has his own dishes and favorite sleeping chairs. Just like the little prince he is!

My studio is also where I keep lots of special goodies and one-of-a-kind samples, proofs, and treasures. I’m going to be opening my studio up for invitation-only events, tours and release parties! So if you’d like to sign up for an invitation to my events in my Vancouver BC studio, email info@camilladerrico.com !

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!!
