Returning to Comic Con Palm Springs

I’m coming back to Comic Con Palm Springs! I love Palm Springs, and this convention is a fantastic way to express all those good vibes and share some art with all you lovelies! You can find me at booth#806 where I’ll have prints, my new artbook, coloring books, apparel, new beach towels, stickers & pins & more!

The show hours are:

Friday August 25 – 1-7pm

Saturday Aug 26: 10am-7pm

Sunday Aug 27: 9:30am – 4:30pm

Do you like to color? I’m hosting a Coloring Book panel in celebration of my Pop Manga Coloring Book at Comic Con Palm Springs! It’s going to take place Saturday August 26 in room Smoketree C from 11am-12noon. There will be convention-exclusive coloring pages and I’ll bring crayons for us to share and color together. It’ll be a blast!

And while we’re talking about books, I’m going to have copies of my newest artbook from Dark Horse Comics at my booth 806! Femina & Fauna 2nd Edition is an updated edition of my sold-out title, and for this printing I’ve added new artwork, a new forward by Simone Legno creator of tokidoki, and a new chapter on how I made my painting “Aria”. It’s a great overview of my artwork featuring girls & animals, and I’ll be happy to sign your copy at the show!

I’m bringing lots of lovely prints to Comic Con Palm Springs! Like little “Pinkie Pie” here, and 8×10″ prints of “Lemon Drop”, my Howl’s Moving Castle artwork and new Lilo & Stitch inspired prints!

My “Merpeeps” is also debuting for the first time as a full color print! This one I colored together with Karina Siu, aren’t they precious! You can pick up a print at my booth 806 and I’ll sign it too!

Also debuting for the first time as a print is “The Hootist” which is my Comic Con Palm Springs exclusive print! I’ve made 25pcs of 8×10″ sized prints that I hand-embellished with metallic paints. Once these beauties all find new homes, they won’t be made again! So pick one up at my booth 806, or as a friend to help get one for you!

I’m bringing a new colorway of Peach Pie totes to Comic Con Palm Springs! These 16″ totes are super durable and strong, and come with a zipper to keep all your goodies inside where they belong. They’re even machine washable! So pick out your favorite, Peach Pie or Hello My Neighbor at my booth 806 and I’ll see you there!

Stickers and buttons and pins, oh my! I’m bringing lots of little goodies to my booth 806 including my newest Hello My Neighbor stickers, Rainbuns & Tuttleina pins. So pick out your favorite treasures when I see you there!

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!

San Diego Comic Con Goodies Preview

It’s almost here! I’m so excited to show all you lovelies all of the lovely goodies I’ve been working on to bring to San Diego Comic Con! I’m coming back to my same booth location 4723, so come find me in the Fantasy Illustrator section. Here’s a handy-dandy map!

I’ve been focusing a lot on one-of, limited and small run goodies and apparel. And I’m bringing lots of it to booth 4723! I’ll have a handful of pieces from my LiveHeroes apparel collection, like these.

I’m also bringing mugs to SDCC! I’ll have 2 different designs of full-color print mugs, like these “Arachnia” ones. Isn’t she gorgeous! You can get one at booth 4723. 🙂

I’m bringing coaster sets and socks to SDCC booth 4723! You can mix and match 4 coasters to a set, but quantities are limited so come pick your favorites early in the show! The socks are super pretty too, each pair is all-over-print and super comfy. There’s 4 different designs to choose from, or you could get the whole set!

Totes totes totes! I’ve made a bunch of 1-of tote designs and colorways for my booth 4723! Each one is double-sided printing with a colored handle, and lots of them have zippers! They’re machine washable, so don’t be afraid to use them every day and freshen them up in the wash!

Is your pin game strong! It can be with the new Tuttleina and Rainbuns hard enamel pins I’m bringing to SDCC! These lovelies are polished hard enamel with a smooth surface, and locking pin backings on the back, so they won’t fall off your favorite bag or cardigan, or where ever you like to pin your treasures!

I’ve also got a big beautiful collection of printed vintage plates coming to SDCC! Each plate is truly one-of-a-kind and can’t be reproduced the same way. They make amazing wall decorations or additions to your curio cabinet, or anywhere you’d like to display a unique treasure!

I’ve got lots of new and unique plates for the show, so I’m going to bring new designs every day to booth 4723! Come check them out and be sure to visit on different days to find your new favorites. I’m also doing something fun and new this year! I’ve made 3 original drawings on Shikishi boards and I’m going to raffle them to supporters who purchase new goodies from my booth 4723.

I’ll give raffle tickets to supporters and have daily drawings on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. So if you’re at the show and you purchase from my booth on Wednesday Preview night, I’ll give you a raffle ticket for the Thursday evening drawing. It’s going to be so much fun! I’ll draw raffle tickets on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, so to be eligible you need to be at my booth 4723 in person at the end of the day (the exhibition hall closes 7pm). I’ll see you lovelies there, and thank you in advance for your support for my art!

San Diego Comic Con Part 2 New Releases

Get ready my lovelies! San Diego Comic Con is almost upon us! Are you as excited as I am? I can hardly believe it’s already been almost a year since SDCC. And in that time, I’ve planned lots of beautiful exclusive, one-of-a-kind, and new release goodies for you!

I’ll be back at my booth location 4723 so mark it on your maps! My booth is in the Fantasy Illustrators section.

This year I made lots of One-Of-A-Kind types of items for fans visiting my booth#4723! I’ll have Tshirts and Tanktops in brand new and one-of designs, so if you see one you like in your size,  don’t miss out, because there’ll only be one or two like it at SDCC.

 

These are previews of designs from my Liveheroes collection you can find in extremely limited quantities at my SDCC booth 4723! I’ll also have a few of my new Liveheroes long strapped bags, check them out!

I’ve also made one-of Scarves and totes for the show! These color combinations of zippers and straps won’t be made again, so if it’s love-at-first-sight, add your favorite to your collection! My totes and even scarves are washable (scarves like to be hand washed in cold and hang-dry) so don’t be afraid to wear and use them!

I’ll be making new necklaces for SDCC booth 4723 too! I’m thinking some rainbow and surreal images- you’re going to love them! I’ll only make 1 of each image design per frame & necklace chain style, so each one will be individual. Make sure you pick out your favorite early in the show!

I’ve made a very special collection of plates for my SDCC booth 4723! I’ve been scouring the corners of the earth together with my plate printing artisan partner, BeatUpCreations, and I’m bringing a big beautiful offering of one-of-a-kind printed vintage plates to Comic Con. Each plate is One-Of-A-Kind, and I’m going to bring new ones each day of the show for everyone to have a chance to find something special, so make sure you come check them out! Here’s a peek at just a few of the designs coming to SDCC:

 

I wish I could show you all of them, but it’ll be a fun surprise for fans in person to discover new plate images every day! So come visit my booth 4723, and if you can’t make it to the show, stay tuned to my newsletter here for upcoming releases of vintage plates on my Etsy!

I’m hand-embellishing fine art prints especially for SDCC! I’ve made an edition of 5pcs of “La Madre” 16×19″ fine art prints, and once these are sold, I won’t be reprinting this size again! She’s exclusive to SDCC, and I’m embellishing each print by hand with metallic paints. I’m also bringing hand-embellished prints of Ophelia to booth 4723! These ones I painted with gold and silver metallic paints to make them extra special, releasing exclusively at SDCC!

New prints are coming to SDCC too! Come to my booth 4723 for new releases like “Foxy Lady”, a new colorway of my Mermaid & Narwhal, “Pinkie Pie” prints, and lots more fan-favorites!

Also brand new for SDCC are stickers of my painting image “Hello My Neighbor”! These are inspired by one of my favorite films and ghibli characters, Totoro!

My new artbook release, Femina & Fauna 2nd Edition is also coming to SDCC! This is a new and updated edition of my sold-out “Femina & Fauna” artbook from Dark Horse Comics. For this edition I added new artwork, a new forward by Simone Legno creator of tokidoki, and a new section showing the creation of my painting “Aria”. If you’re an artbook collector or know an art lover, this is a great book to add to any collection!

I’m bringing copies of my Pop Manga Coloring Book too! These are loads of fun, and I love seeing your colored pages if you post them online and tag me #camilladerrico

There’s lots I’m bringing to SDCC, even more than what I can share here, so come and visit me at booth 4723! I’ll sign prints and books, and don’t be shy to ask to take a photo together! I’ll keep posting more photos and sneak peeks on social media, and you can follow @thecamillastore on Facebook, Twitter & IG for more updates on goodies too. See you soon in San Diego!

Happy Canada Day! Celebrate 150 Years With Something Special

Happy birthday Canada! Did you know I’m a Canadian artist, living and working in beautiful Vancouver BC? I love it here! It’s so beautiful and full of nature, and wonderful people, and food, and everything! And every year I like to give a shout-out to all my fellow Canadians and friends of Canada in celebration. I even got my coordinator Tasha in the spirit (by saying “Here Tasha, hold this” and taking photos hehehe).

And this year is Canada’s 150 birthday! Woohoo! That’s a milestone all right. And so I thought to celebrate it would be fun to share the good vibes! I’ve made a code you can use on my customizable print shop here for FREE SHIPPING on orders $150+! Just enter the code CELEBRATE at checkout I’ll ship your prints anywhere in the world to you at no extra cost!

I’ve added new prints to my customizable print shop in honor of Canada Day! Like “Canadian Tiger” here, which is still one of my favorite paintings and much loved by people all around the world. You can also find prints like Aria, Muffler, and new ones like Unraveling and The Girl Who Knew Too Much.

Roma Cartoon Festival June 23-25

Rome! I’m coming back to visit you! I’m excited to be featured as a guest artist at Roma Cartoon Festival in Rome, Italy, June 23-35. This is going to be an amazing show, and it’s not often I come to Europe, so if you can make it to Rome please come find me and say Hi!

Roma Cartoon Festival is held in the Guido Reni district, and will be open from 10am – 8pm June 23- 24 and 25. It’s held in the same building as my solo exhibition “Submerged” collection is on display through Dorothy Circus Gallery, so definitely go check out my original paintings too!

Roma Festival Events:

Friday June 23 – Live Painting 4-5pm

Saturday June 24 – Signing 4-5pm

Sunday June 25 – Signing 4-5pm

Roma Festival is preparing posters and thirts with my artwork, “Where The Wild Things Squirm” on them! Posters will be available for my signing, and you’ll be able to purchase a tshirt from the event as a momento of your visit!

I’ll be bringing prints, books, apparel and goodies to Roma Festival! Come visit me in my guest artist exhibition room and check out the special things I have for Roma Festival. I’ll be bringing prints of “La Madre”, “Where The Wild Things Squirm”, “Hello My Kittyland”, “Strawberry Whispers” and more!

I’ll have a limited number of copies of my “Rainbow Children” artbook and a handful of Helmetgirls artbooks at Roma Festival! These can be hard for fans in Europe to find, and especially rare to find a signed copy, so come pick yours up!

New Jewelry

I’m so excited to share my new handmade jewelry! I’ve made these necklace pendants with my art in them, each one paired very carefully to match and compliment the frames, and will have them at Roma festival June 23-25. If you’d like to see me make more for my Etsy, let me know on social media!

One-Of Totes

I’m bringing a handful of Tote Bags and one-of-a-kind scarves to Roma Festival! I’ll only have one piece of each design, so if you see one you fall in love with, snap it up! I’ll also have an extremely limited selection of my new Live Heroes collection apparel, but only a handful of pieces will be available, so be sure to come visit me early for the most selection!

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!!

Camilla
