San Diego Comic Con Part 3 Events

It’s coming up fast! Next week San Diego Comic Con will be upon us, and I’ve got fun events planned during the show. I’ll have a booth again at booth#4723 in the Fantasy Illustrator section, so come visit me there to get your books and prints signed, and check out all my awesome goodies!

I’ve got a special signing event to celebrate the release of my artbook, “Femina & Fauna 2nd Edition”! Dark Horse Comics, the publisher of the artbook, is hosting a signing event on Thursday July 20, from 4-5:30pm at their booth#2615. I’ll be signing alongside Simone Legno, creator of tokidoki who contributed the forward to Femina & Fauna 2nd Ed! We’ll be signing a special SDCC event-only print featuring my artwork ‘Black Rabbit Kaleidoscope’ and Simone’s painting image ‘Selfie’, and signing copies of Femina & Fauna purchased at the show. This is a wristband-only signing limited to 75 wristbands, so you need to get a wristband from Dark Horse Comics booth#2615. There will be 30 wristbands given out Wednesday night, and 45 wristbands distributed Thursday morning at booth 2615, so go visit them early to get one! I hope to see you there, and don’t be shy to ask to take a photo together! 😉

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! This is an awesome opportunity to see my techniques in action, and ask about how I make my paintings, so come watch on Saturday Jul 22 from 10-11am at booth 5104!

San Diego Comic Con Part 2 New Releases

Get ready my lovelies! San Diego Comic Con is almost upon us! Are you as excited as I am? I can hardly believe it’s already been almost a year since SDCC. And in that time, I’ve planned lots of beautiful exclusive, one-of-a-kind, and new release goodies for you!

I’ll be back at my booth location 4723 so mark it on your maps! My booth is in the Fantasy Illustrators section.

This year I made lots of One-Of-A-Kind types of items for fans visiting my booth#4723! I’ll have Tshirts and Tanktops in brand new and one-of designs, so if you see one you like in your size,  don’t miss out, because there’ll only be one or two like it at SDCC.

 

These are previews of designs from my Liveheroes collection you can find in extremely limited quantities at my SDCC booth 4723! I’ll also have a few of my new Liveheroes long strapped bags, check them out!

If you can’t make it to SDCC though, don’t sweat it! You can order items from my Liveheroes collection online here. They ship internationally too!

I’ve also made one-of Scarves and totes for the show! These color combinations of zippers and straps won’t be made again, so if it’s love-at-first-sight, add your favorite to your collection! My totes and even scarves are washable (scarves like to be hand washed in cold and hang-dry) so don’t be afraid to wear and use them!

I’ll be making new necklaces for SDCC booth 4723 too! I’m thinking some rainbow and surreal images- you’re going to love them! I’ll only make 1 of each image design per frame & necklace chain style, so each one will be individual. Make sure you pick out your favorite early in the show!

I’ve made a very special collection of plates for my SDCC booth 4723! I’ve been scouring the corners of the earth together with my plate printing artisan partner, BeatUpCreations, and I’m bringing a big beautiful offering of one-of-a-kind printed vintage plates to Comic Con. Each plate is One-Of-A-Kind, and I’m going to bring new ones each day of the show for everyone to have a chance to find something special, so make sure you come check them out! Here’s a peek at just a few of the designs coming to SDCC:

 

I wish I could show you all of them, but it’ll be a fun surprise for fans in person to discover new plate images every day! So come visit my booth 4723, and if you can’t make it to the show, stay tuned to my newsletter here for upcoming releases of vintage plates on my Etsy!

I’m hand-embellishing fine art prints especially for SDCC! I’ve made an edition of 5pcs of “La Madre” 16×19″ fine art prints, and once these are sold, I won’t be reprinting this size again! She’s exclusive to SDCC, and I’m embellishing each print by hand with metallic paints. I’m also bringing hand-embellished prints of Ophelia to booth 4723! These ones I painted with gold and silver metallic paints to make them extra special, releasing exclusively at SDCC!

New prints are coming to SDCC too! Come to my booth 4723 for new releases like “Foxy Lady”, a new colorway of my Mermaid & Narwhal, “Pinkie Pie” prints, and lots more fan-favorites!

I have a brand new Hard Enamel pin design coming to SDCC booth 4723! This new design is a limited edition of only 100pcs, and a SDCC Exclusive. Also brand new for SDCC are stickers of my painting image “Hello My Neighbor”! These are inspired by one of my favorite films and ghibli characters, Totoro!

My new artbook release, Femina & Fauna 2nd Edition is also coming to SDCC! This is a new and updated edition of my sold-out “Femina & Fauna” artbook from Dark Horse Comics. For this edition I added new artwork, a new forward by Simone Legno creator of tokidoki, and a new section showing the creation of my painting “Aria”. If you’re an artbook collector or know an art lover, this is a great book to add to any collection!

I’m bringing copies of my Pop Manga Coloring Book too! These are loads of fun, and I love seeing your colored pages if you post them online and tag me #camilladerrico

There’s lots I’m bringing to SDCC, even more than what I can share here, so come and visit me at booth 4723! I’ll sign prints and books, and don’t be shy to ask to take a photo together! I’ll keep posting more photos and sneak peeks on social media, and you can follow @thecamillastore on Facebook, Twitter & IG for more updates on goodies too. See you soon in San Diego!
