Get ready, New York City! I’m coming back to New York Comic Con October 5-8, and bringing lots of fun surprises with me! This year my booth is moved to booth#683 in The Block, so be sure to come find me there, okay!

I’ll be at the show all 4 days, the show hours are:

Thursday 10am-7pm

Friday 10am-7pm

Saturday 10am-7pm

Sunday 10am-5pm

I’m also very excited to announce I’ll be speaking on a panel with a brand new partner I’m working with, Webtoons! I’ve got a big surprise launching with them soon, and you can hear a little about it at the Webtoons panel¬†Saturday, 5:15-6:15pm in room 1B03. See you there!

NYCC Exclusives

I’m bringing new and fabulous exclusives to my NYCC booth 683! Here’s a look at my NYCC exclusive print release, “Joella”. I made a limited edition of 25pcs only, signed & numbered on fine art paper, and hand-embellished each one to make them extra special! I’ll have them at my booth683 at the show, and if any remain, my First Dibs Patrons will get a chance at any that might remain. If you can’t make it to NYCC for my exclusives, you can sign up for First Dibs here!

I’m obsessed with eyes! So I made new handmade necklaces and original oil paintings I’m bringing to NYCC booth683. These wearable pieces of art are sure to be eye-catching (see what I did there!) and the oil paintings are petite pieces with a variety of price levels, perfect for different collectors!

Prints

I’m bringing lots of prints for you lovelies! You can find a selection of 8×10 and 11×14″ prints, and even some larger 16×20″ and limited edition fine art prints at my booth 683!

I’m also bringing a big assortment of my official Liveheroes clothing collection to NYCC booth 683! I’ll have tshirts, sweatshirts, and handbags. Each piece is handmade with a lot of time and love put into them, so I’ll only have 1-2 pieces of each design. Come to my booth 683 early for the most selection, and if you see something you fall in love with, don’t sleep, because with quantities this limited it’ll be gone-baby-gone soon! Can’t make it to the show? Fear not! You can order from Liveheroes online here.

Original Drawings

I’ve been sketching up a storm in preparation for NYCC! Come by my booth 683 for new framed 5×7″ graphite drawings- each one is one-of-a-kind! They’re an awesome way to take an original artwork home and make your NYCC trip extra special!

I’m bringing books to my NYCC booth683! Come find a copy of Tanpopo 1 or 2, or an artbook, and I’ll sign it for you! I’ll be taking some sketches in books during the show, so don’t be shy to ask about a sketch inside your new book!

 

Labor Day Weekend On Etsy Starts Tonight

I’ve got goodies coming to The Camilla Store on Etsy tonight at 5pm PST! I’m releasing a handful of my hand-embellished Ophelia SDCC Exclusive release limited edition fine art prints, new signed prints and sketched-in artbooks, handmade necklaces, and a selection of prints are even 10% off!

While I was in Palm Springs I did some sketches in some Rainbow Children and Femina & Fauna artbooks for some lucky collectors this weekend on Etsy! Rainbow Children is sold out from the publisher Dark Horse Comics, so it’s going to get harder to find in stores. If you haven’t picked up your copy yet, you can get a sketched-in copy starting tonight at 5PM PST here.

Signed prints are going live on The Camilla Store on Etsy at 5pm PST! You can collect prints like my new painting image inspired by Dorian Gray here!

It’s Almost Caturday! New Release Aug 19

I have a special surprise for you! After CatCon last weekend, I thought to share the cute kitty goodness and add Caturday to the calendar for a special release! 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!

I’m releasing hand-signed prints for Caturday! There will be lots of lovely kitty themed images, so you can pick your favorites when they release Aug 19 at 7pm PST here.

How’s your pin game? It’s going to be even stronger with these lovely Handicat hard enamel pins! Some are coming to Etsy here on Aug 19 at 7PM PST. More Hard Enamel pins are joining in the fun for release day too! Now you’ll be able to get Rainbuns and Tuttleina hard enamel pins. 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!

Now you’ll be able to get Hello My Neighbor stickers on Etsy here starting Aug 19 at 7PM PST! These 4″ stickers are super for putting on your laptop case, sketchbook, and they’re even weatherproof and can go on your car!

Some goodies are coming back into stock on Etsy during my Caturday release too! If you missed out on Lemon Drop signed 8×10 prints, coasters, Bumblebee sticker sheets or lovemelon stickers then you’ll have another chance on Aug 19 at 7pm PST!

Coming to CatCon Aug 12-13

I’m going to a fun new convention in Pasadena! Cat Con is a cat themed convention at the Pasadena convention center, August 12-13. I’ll be set up at exhibitor booth#707 with prints, apparel, books, new kitty-themed goodies and more.

Everything I bring to Cat Con booth 707 will be a delight for all you cat lovers out there! Here’s a look at some of the prints I’ll have with me.

I’m also making some brand new prints I’ll be offering for the first time! Come find me at booth 707 for prints like “Neko-Chan” and “Dandylion”!

I’ll also have new hand-made goodies like these Handicat catnip-stuffed cat toys and 13″ pillows! Each one is printed, cut, sewn and stuffed by hand in Canada. They’re so cute!

“Dandylion” is also debuting as a glasses cleaning cloth at CatCon booth 707! They can be used on your cellphone or tablet, or other screens, and the best part is they’re handmade locally in Vancouver and machine washable. So just pop it in the wash to clean it and you’re good to go!

And just take a look at these amazing new Handicat hard enamel pins! They’re so cute and full of squish face, I just can’t even! Hard Enamel pins have a polished surface on top, and these ones come with locking clutch backings too! I’ll have them at my CatCon booth 707 so come pick one up!

I’m also bringing copies of my newest artbook, Femina & Fauna 2nd Edition, to CatCon booth 707! This is a new edition to my Femina & Fauna artbook, which sold out of all 4 of its print runs. For this new edition I added loads of new artwork, a different cover and a whole new chapter on how I painted Aria.

CatCon fans will be able to pick up a copy of my Pop Manga Coloring Book at booth 707! And don’t be shy to ask me to sign it- I’d love to!

I have something new and fun to bring to Cat Con August 12-13! I’m bringing a very few handmade cat jackets featuring my artwork “Aria”! Doesn’t my friend’s kitty, Marlow, look so dapper? Each jacket is made by hand in Vancouver, so only a few exist, but maybe a few could come to my Etsy one day!

Totes! I’m bringing some awesome totes, clutch purses and a limited amount of tshirts and tanktops to CatCon booth 707. I’ll only have a handful, and some of the designs will only have 1-2 of each available, so if you see something you love, don’t wait! I’ll see you soon in sunny Pasadena August 12-13!

The Bee Release is Coming Aug 4th!

I have been busy as a bee creating lots of new artwork and lovely treasures for my big Bee release August 4th, 9AM PST on Etsy Here! This is an extra special release because I’ve partnered with Planet Bee Foundation and am fundraising to sponsor a brand new hive for the School For The Arts in San Francisco! Proceeds from my Bee Release Aug 4th will go towards making this new hive possible, and help educate students who also love art and helping the environment! Planet Bee Foundation is a 501(c)3 environmental education nonprofit based in San Francisco. 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.

And by supporting my Bee Release, you can help your local bee populations too! My Etsy coordinator Asami will be adding bee conservation-approved Bentley wildflower seed packets to the first 150 orders shipping inside the USA. Different countries internationally have different rules about importing things like seeds, so these wildflower seeds can go to addresses inside the USA. But if you want to help bees in your area too, check out your local bee conservation organizations for info on how to help!

I have new signed and limited edition prints coming to Etsy Here on Aug 4th 9AM PST. There’ll be signed prints of Lemon Drop, The Beekeeper, Trinity and Alveare. And I’ve made hand-embellished limited edition fine art prints of Queen Beeatrice, Alveare, and Trinity too! I added metallic gold embellishments to each one, in limited and artist proof editions of between 2, 3, 8, 11 and 13pcs only. These beauties are made on heavy archival 300gsm Entrada paper and come signed & numbered, and are each embellished to give them a special personal touch!

The metallic gold paint really pops in the light! It’s amazing as a detail for the honeycombs and adding a touch of sparkly magic to the prints.

I’ve made a brand new collection of original bee paintings too! These little buzzy, bumbly beauties are between 2-4″ in size and come framed. I’m so inspired by bees, as primary pollinators in our natural world, I wanted to make them all different colors. Even a rainbow spectrum one!

I had loads of fun painting these little cuties, and I hope you love them as much as I do! Since they’re smaller petite paintings, they’re a great way for more types of collectors or fans who are new to collecting original art to get an original artwork in their own collections. Each petite bee painting is one-of-a-kind though, and small originals usually find homes quickly, so be sure to check here right at 9AM PST on August 4th.

Vintage plate fans, rejoice! I’ve made a wonderful selection of new bee-themed printed vintage plates together with my artisan plate printer at Beatup Creations featuring my bee themed artworks! There will be a variety of plate sizes and prices, from little petite saucer sized plates, up to big magnificent vintage plates. Each one is truly one-of-a-kind and no plate can be replicated twice, so if you fall in love with one, check right at 9AM PST release time here to add yours to your own hive!

Look at this lovely little family of rainbow bee printed saucers! I had 10 matching saucers and now each one is one-of-a-kind featuring its own rainbow bee. So even if an original oil painting isn’t in your future, you can bring one of my super colorful little bumble-buddies home in a different way as a one-of printed plate!

Handmade necklaces, one-of-a-kind totes, and one-of apparel are joining my Bee Release August 4th at 9AM PST! Each piece will have only 1 in stock, so check Etsy early Aug 4th at 9AM for the most selection.

Can you even bee-lieve this amazing towel?!

These scarves are amazing! You’re going to love them even more in person. Each one is handmade and hand-cut in Canada, and is machine washable on cold (they like to be hang dried!). Supporting local businesses is really important to me, so by collecting one-of and hand-made goodies like these scarves, you’re helping local and small businesses too! Proceeds of all my Bee Release goodies are going towards sponsoring a new bee hive with Planet Bee Foundation in the School For The Arts in San Francisco, and USA orders will receive a packet of bee-conservation approved wildflowers to plant and help their local bees while supplies last. So let’s join together spreading love, education and art in support of the bees August 4th 9AM PST right here!

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. ūüôā

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!

Handmade Jewelry

As promised, here’s a little preview of the new merchandise for the release party!¬† Today’s featured merch is the new handmade jewelry from an Australian artisan Laya Bosman, who goes under the desigern label Trinket.¬† These are really special, each one made with loving care by hand, and make perfect gifts for girlfriends, daughters, sisters, moms and also yourself!

A playful & mesmerising range of handmade jewellery, inspired by the enchanted world of Camilla d’Errico. After seeing her first painting by Camilla in 2007, Australian jewellery artist Laya Bosman was completely captivated, and in a moment of inspiration created a simple silver ring featuring one of Camilla’s artworks. The result was so lovely she decided to reach across the seas and contact Camilla herself, which sparked a close collaboration and long journey towards the first full range of custom designed, handmade jewellery to feature Camilla’s artwork.

The three designs of the FIRST SERIES: WOOD are all available on the ONLINE STORE and cost $70.

For those who would like to gift something even more special, you can custom order sterling silver and 22-carat gold pendants and rings from Laya by emailing her.¬† This jewelry is stunning, handcrafted and extra special.¬† We don’t carry it online because of the time it takes Laya to make it, and for sizing reasons for rings.¬† These are some examples. Aren’t they beautiful!?
