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!

A fresh wound of the heart is torn open by the unmasking of Kuro’s deadly deception with Ni. His lessons in human emotion push Tanpopo to the limits of her resolve. Is this part of his plan as her otherworldly guide or has he underestimated Tanpopo’s dogged independence?

Following Tanpopo Volume 1, Volume 2 continues Tanpopo’s journey into human emotion through classic literary works of Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, and 1001 Arabian Nights.

A reliable source close to Tanpopo and Kuro has revealed the star-crossed couple had eloped this past weekend while Camilla attended Emerald City Comic Con. The newlyweds have disappeared, and cannot be reached for comment.

It would seem plans for Camilla and Boom! Studios Tanpopo Graphic Novel #2 are halted in their tracks, just weeks before international release.
