Hi guys! I’m excited to share a new project I’ve been working on. I created a cover illustration for “Bloodworth” comic issue#3, which is now live on Kickstarter! Bloodworth is a comic project crowdfunding the production cost for its 3rd issue, but you can get the previous issues, along with the new one, through the campaign here and start reading the comic for pledges of $5+!
Here’s a look at the original graphite drawing I created. You can pledge on the kickstarter for the original artwork as one of the reward tiers here!
You can also support the Bloodworth Kickstarter by pledging for an art print of the cover image. I’ll be signing these art prints before they go home to your collection! And if you’re strapped for cash, other ways you can help Bloodworth are by Liking the Campaign here or sharing on social media! Go, Bloodworth, go! 🙂

Support Killer Tentacle Octopus x Camilla’s Tentacle Crowns and themed jewelry on Kickstarter here.
Camilla and Killer Tentacle Octopus have been working on a very special collaboration, combining art, fashion and sculpture. Wearable tentacle crowns , inspired by Camilla’s painting The Dream Melt, are now live on Kickstarter.
These wearable crowns were first hand-sculpted, and cast in resin. This allows them to be both lightweight and durable, with wig clips sewn into the base for secure application when worn.
These Tentacle Crowns make for beautiful accessories, cosplay pieces, and collectors items, in their decorative and easy-view packaging. The Tentacle Crowns are live on Kickstarter now, with a variety of reward tiers available. Rewards for pledges include different crown colorways, prints, artwork, merchandise, jewelry and more.

How cool is this? Tanpopo is one of 2011’s top comics Kickstarter projects. That is quite the achievement and it’s thanks to everyone who supported the campaign, and Camilla. In February the funders will receive their special books, prints and prizes.
What’s even cooler about this graphic is that Camilla was a part of two others – the major ‘winner’ Womanthology and also the huge success ‘Transmetropolitan Art Book’.
Thanks very much to everyone who supported Camilla’s Tanpopo, Womanthology, and Transmetropolitan – and also all the support of absolutely everything. 2011 has been fabulous!
The level of support that the Tanpopo Kickstarter has receieved has been amazing so far! Thank you so much! With less than 24 hours left, we wanted to show-off Camilla’s colored image for the limited edition slipcase. This exclusive, special edition of the hardcover book will not be available in stores. So, if you want your own copy of the image below, you better visit the Kickstarter page now!
If you’re unfamiliar with any of the artists, please click on their link to see wonderful examples of their work. The guest list alone is going to make this one of the best books of 2012, and wait until you see the full-length story by Camilla and Joshua Dysart!
It’s also with great joy and humble thanks that we celebrate the complete funding of the Tanpopo Kickstarter campaign – over 100% with brand new tiers for original art added!
