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!

San Diego Comic Con Here We Come!

.

Hi everyone!!  San Diego Comic Con is right around the corner and we’ve got so much great stuff to share with you, so get ready for a bit of overload :P.  First of all, let’s talk Giant Buddha Kuro.  We are excited to share this guy with you, even though he’s ultra limited edition.   This “plushzilla” is seriously H-U-G-E.  He stands a full 2 feet tall, 60″, he’s about 1 foot wide and 1 foot deep.

There are only 100 Buddha plushes available and they are to be picked-up at the convention, from booth #4920.  The price per plush is $125 USD.  We are now taking PRE-ORDERS so please write to cderricostore@gmail.com to reserve yours!  If you get yours on PREVIEW NIGHT, Camilla will even be on hand to make an extra special signature/sketch on his giant hang tag!

.

“What if I’m not going to San Diego Comic Con?!?!”  You’re right, not everyone goes to SDCC, so for those who want Buddha but can’t pick him up you can get on the  pre-order list.  We’ve looked into shipping already, and it won’t cost an extra arm or leg!  Shipping within North America is $40.  Once you email cderricostore@gmail.com, we’ll take care of your order and guide you through the payment process.

And that is Tanpopo #3!  We will officially pre-release some books at SDCC and I am soooooooo excited about it.  I wanted to share this extra special book with you all BEFORE San Diego Comic Con, but without giving too much away so …. I am giving away a free download “teaser” here.  What it is, is this new system where you share the download with your friends and networks. It’s pretty cool and called “pay with a tweet”.

.

What other little surprises can I tell you about?!  I’ll be having a giveaway – a chance to win some paint supplies from Holbein.  These are the paints I use every day, the DUO water-soluble oils that I literally swear by! ** image does not represent the prize.

.

So let’s talk PREVIEW NIGHT.  Preview night is all about limited edition prints – silkscreened prints and giclee prints. Some are one of a kind, and I’ll leave the surprise at that!  Also on preview night, and as promised, I’ll have more Stitch vinyls.

Every day of the con I’ll have a t-shirt sale too – 20 for $20.  Each day one tshirt design will go on sale. There will be 20 available, each one for $20. First come, first serve!  And this is a COMIC con, of course so … on top of the Tanpopo trilogy, I’ll have copies of the Fractured Fables books (yup the big anthology), as well as BURN graphic novels, and Sky Pirates of Neo Terra signed sets.

.

There’s actually more to tell you about, but I’ve written a monster so I’ll stop here, and if I can, I’ll write again before the convention (either me or Nancy will give a final update about what else is up our sleeves and in our Santa bags!!).
