One-Of-A-Kind Plates

I’ve got lovely plates for you lovelies at Salt Lake Comic Con! Here’s a look at just a few of the one-of-a-kind vintage printed plates I’m bringing to booth 523. Each one is completely unique, and once it finds it’s new home, it can’t be remade, so come visit me early to pick your favorites!

New Original Artwork

I’m making new original graphite drawings to share with visitors to my booth523 at SLCC! And if you can’t make it to the convention to check out my new drawings in person, you can find lots of my drawings through my new Patreon page here. I made a tier so that starting from $2 you can get collections every month of to see drawings I make for conventions, but don’t get to post on social media! You can check it out here.

Totes & Apparel

I’m bringing one-of tote bag colorways, small production run apparel, and other wonderful treats to SLCC booth 523! A lot of these goodies are one-of-a-kind or only have 1-2 pieces available, so come visit me early to scope them out!

Books

I’m excited to share copies of my graphic novel Tanpopo with Salt Lake City Comic Con fans! I’ll sign your book, and you can ask about a sketch in your copy at my booth 523!

 

I’m also bringing copies of my newest artbook Femina & Fauna, and my Pop Manga Coloring Book. You can pick yours up at booth523!

Prints

Prints are coming to my SLCC booth 523! I’ve got lots of new and favorite print images in 8×10 and 11×14″ sizes. If you want them signed, I’ll do that too, no extra charge!

 

Join My Adventure Club on Patreon

I’m super excited to share a new project I’ve been working on for you lovelies! I’ve launched my band new Patreon page! Patreon is a place where I can connect more with my supporters and share more new art, behind-the-scenes looks at my process, and even what’s most important to me like Loki and my secret hobby (oh yeah, did I mention I secretly write fanfictions about Walking Dead and vampires??). It’ll be like joining my Adventure Club to share in my creative process!

One of the things I’m most looking forward to (and terrified of!) is sharing my fanfiction writing. But after I started mentioning it’s my hobby when I’m at conventions, or have visitors in my studio, everyone’s so excited and supportive to hear about it! So I’m taking the plunge and going to put it out there! Now you can subscribe for chapters of my Walking Dead fanfiction I titled “Loss And Gain”. I’ll add new chapters every month! This story is about WHAT IF Beth had survived being shot. What would happen to her and the group if she met up with them again? What if Beth and Daryl could finish their conversation in the kitchen? And what happens when they face off against Skin Walkers, a serial killer, and a herd of walkers!

I also have a lot of ideas for behind-the-scenes process content to offer only through Patreon. Finally I can do things like offer one-on-one portfolio reviews, share more videos, time-lapses, photos from my studio, and art that I make that doesn’t get posted on social media.

Patreon’s also a great way to get your own commissioned artwork! Every month I’ll be taking a small number of drawing and fuzzy bee painting commissions. You can sign up here!

There are loads of cool goodies and giveaways I have planned too. I’ve got to stop myself from giving everything away though, so you can come see what’s new here! I’m so thankful for your support for my art. Honestly, I can’t do what I do without your support, and by making contributions to me and my artwork you support a lot of small businesses and independent creatives I work and collaborate with too. It’s a big, wide, wonderful and amazing chain of being able to create and share all the rainbows and manga art in my heart with the world. And I thank you so much! So come check me out on Patreon!

It’s Almost Caturday! New Release Aug 19

On August 19th at 7pm PST, I’m releasing a bunch of Cat themed goodies including original artwork, signed prints, hand-made goodies like a cat jacket and pillows, and more on Etsy Here.

Isn’t this jacket just dashing on Marlow kitty here? It’s hand-made and one of only a very few pieces created right here in the Vancouver Canada area. And now it’s coming to Etsy! But there’s only 1, so if your kitty needs some wearable art, snap it up right at release time at 7pm PST on Etsy Here.

Pillows!!! Look at these amazing Handicat shaped pillows! A very limited quantity are coming to Etsy for Caturday on August 19 at 7pm PST. Each one is hand-made in Vancouver Canada, so you know they’re made with extra love, and you’ll love having one to squish!

And a very few of my SDCC Exclusive release “Girl Interrupted” pins are going on Etsy at 7pm PST on Aug 19. Once this edition sells out this colorway won’t be made again, so don’t sleep on it!

Good news art fans! My newest artbook Femina & Fauna 2nd Edition is coming to Etsy in time for Caturday August 19th at 7pm PST! This is a new and updated edition of my sold out artbook Femina & Fauna. I added lots of new artwork, a new forward by Simone Legno creator of tokidoki, and a new chapter showing how I made my Aria painting!

Say hello to these Handicat clutch purses! Each one is double-sided and machine washable (just unclip the strap and it’s good to wash!) and totally awesome. I use them for pencil cases or travel pouches too!

I’ve got more exciting plans for Caturday too, so check Etsy here at 7PM PST for more original graphite drawings like these. Each one is one-of-a-kind, and original artworks usually find new homes quickly, so check as close to 7PM as you can and good luck!

San Diego Comic Con Part 1

I’m so excited to be returning to San Diego Comic Con! My booth is #4723 in the Fantasy Illustrator section, and I’m bringing lots of original artwork with me this year.

I’ve created a new original painting collection I call “Surreal Safari”, these petite oil paintings range in size from 3.5″ to 4×6″ and 5×7″. They’re an awesome way for new collectors to add an original painting to their collections, since petite paintings range in prices from $450-750+usd

I call this little cutie “Pinkie Pie”, inspired by the awesome Axolotl- they’re a amazing part of the natural world! “Pinkie Pie” is coming to San Diego Comic Con at my booth 4723 where I’ll also have prints, but if you can’t make it to the show, you can pick up a print here.

Another amazing creature I discovered this year is the Seabunny- seriously, if you’ve never heard of one, google search ‘Seabunny’ and you won’t regret it! I knew when I saw photos that I had to paint a rainbow one, so here is “Seabuns” for my Surreal Safari collection! Seanbuns will debut at booth 4723 alongside these other cute critters.

I’ve also been working on my Dorian Gray portrait to get him ready in time to join the Surreal Safari at SDCC booth 4723! He’s inspired by my favorite Oscar Wilde story, and if you’ve never read it, I highly recommend checking it out!

I’m also bringing original drawings to my booth 4723 at SDCC! I have a collection of framed 5×7″ graphite drawings I made during my travels in Europe, and I’ve been holding them for a special release. If you’re coming to the show, definitely visit early because each one is one of a kind, and once it finds a home, it’s gone baby gone!

I’m also making original artwork a part of my fan appreciation at SDCC booth 4723 for fans supporting my artwork at the show! I’m going to raffle original sketches on shikishi boards during the con, so come visit me at booth 4723 for a raffle ticket with your lovely new art goodies! I have lots more announcements for SDCC this year so stay tuned everyone!

Camilla’s Rainbow Release Roundup

I’m so excited my Rainbow Release is almost here! I was inspired by my trip to Rome this month, it’s such a romantic and vibrant city, and I couldn’t help wanting to create artworks to express my joy for celebrating life and love! That’s why I’ve made new framed graphite drawings I’m including in my Rainbow Release tomorrow June 30, 9am on Etsy here.

I also made some lovely necklaces for release on Etsy tomorrow! I hand assembled each one and carefully chose each image to for each pendant frame. They’re a wonderful way to make art something wearable you can take with you day to day! Only one of each of these designs will release on Etsy June 30th at 9AM PST so snap up your favorite before it finds another home!

I’ve also made a small collection of one-of-a-kind vintage printed plates that will release ! Each one is a vintage plate that’s been printed on, and I carefully chose the artwork to compliment the plate design. There’s only 1 of each, so if there’s one you’re after, I suggest completing checkout with it right away before going back to shop for other less-limited goodies. Etsy shopping carts don’t hold the items on reserve, so it’s a race to finish checkout first. If you place another order afterwards, my Etsy coordinator Asami can help combine your shipments. 🙂

Also releasing tomorrow are a beautiful variety of tote bags! Many are one-of colorways, with strap+zipper color pairings I won’t make again! And I’m releasing some limited-run totes for folks to have more chances at a special bag. They’re double-sided and machine washable, and super strong! So don’t be afraid to use them and wash them! They’ll go live at 9am June 30th here.

There are also a handful of prints releasing for my Rainbow Release! Some are hand-signed, some aren’t, and some are super special Artist Proofs or retired prints! So make sure you read the descriptions carefully when you pick your favorites here on Etsy starting June 30th 9AM PST.

And as a special treat, 3 orders placed on June 30th for my Rainbow Release will get a bonus tiny art print with an original sketch on the back, made by me! I appreciate your support so much, and hope you love my Rainbow Release tomorrow June 30th at 9AM PST on Etsy Here!

Hello Rome! Roma Cartoon Festival June 23-25

It’s so good to be back in Rome! I’ve landed and am getting ready for Roma Cartoon Festival June 23-25 at Guido Reni!

Rome is one of those cities of the world that I fall head-over-heels in food-love for. The pizza and gelato are amazing! I don’t think I could ever get tired of them, even if I had them every day.

Since Rome is such an old city, and very compact, a lot of people ride motorbikes or vespas. Unleashing my inner road warrior!

I’m so happy to be visiting Dorothy Circus Gallery again where my “Submerged” solo exhibition painting are on display and some are available! If you haven’t seen them yet or are interested in originals you can email sales@dorothycircusgallery.com

I love running around such a romantic and enchanting city, and then take a break for some drawing! I’m working on original graphite drawings I’ll bring to Roma Cartoon Festival June 23-25. I’ll have a whole exhibition room with my art, prints, apparel and special goodies, so if you can make it to Rome please come visit me!
