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!

New Paintings for Bee Release August 4 on Etsy

It’s almost here! My Bee Release on Etsy is coming August 4th at 9AM PST and I couldn’t be happier! For this release I’ve teamed up with Planet Bee Foundation to raise funds towards sponsoring a brand new beehive for the School For The Arts in San Francisco. Planet Bee Foundation have been so amazing to work with already at our Save The Bees panel at San Diego Comic Con. If you haven’t read about them here yet, their Mission Statement is:

Planet Bee Foundation is a 501(c)3 environmental education nonprofit based in San Francisco. Their mission is to create a green-minded generation and inspire environmental stewardship through the teaching lens of the struggling honey bee and the power of individual action. Through their school programs, corporate teambuilding workshops, and public education, Planet Bee hopes more people will care for our environment and take action to have a positive impact on our interconnected world. To learn more about the work they do, visit here.

I had such an amazing time painting all my lovely fuzzy little bumblebees for release tomorrow. And I have more to share with you! Keep an eye open for these cuties joining the release.

Each bee is framed and one-of-a-kind. So if you have a favorite, I suggest trying to complete the checkout process right away.

The first 150 orders shipping inside the USA will also receive a Bentley wildflower seeds packet to plant and help bees in their area. So get ready for release on Etsy right here August 4th at 9AM PST!

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!!
