Thank You San Diego Comic Con!

That’s a wrap! SDCC 2017 is all done, and what an amazing show! I want to give a big Thank You shout out to everyone who visited and supported me at my booth, joined my signing, panel and live painting, and made this San Diego Comic Con incredible!

Everyone at Dark Horse Comics and team tokidoki, and of course Simone, were fantastic and my signing to celebrate Femina & Fauna 2nd Ed. was incredible! Thank you to everyone who came out to support my new artbook!

Big squishes and thank you’s to my collectors, both new and returning, who gave my Surreal Safari collection pieces such amazing new homes! I had a blast painting them, and all my petite paintings from this year’s collection have gone to new places. I’m already thinking about my next painting series!

Every year I get to make Live Painting at Holbein art supplies booth a part of my SDCC experience, and I love sharing my techniques and talking about the thing I love to do most with fans and visitors. Thanks again to Holbein for having me and for their support. All their paints and supplies are amazing, so check them out if you haven’t yet!

This year’s Comic Con will stay with me in my memories, and I’m so grateful for all your love and support for my artwork! Next year is going to be my 20th year going to SDCC, and I know already it’s going to be a wonderful show. I hope to see you lovelies there!

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 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!

Thank You Roma Cartoon Festival!

Thank you to everyone who visited me at Roma Cartoon Festival last weekend! And to the amazing organizers who all worked so hard (and even through the crazy heat wave!) to make the festival fun for everyone!

I had my fangirl moment meeting Masami Suda, illustrator for Fist of the North Star and much more! Childhood idol right there, so it was awesome getting to say Hello in person!

I’ve had some adventures while I’m back in Rome too, my cousin is a great travel companion! Between the two of us (mostly me) we’ve eaten so much amazing pasta haha. 😉

It’s been a blast and I’m always happy to visit Dorothy Circus Gallery while I’m in town. My original paintings from my Submerged show are still on display so if you can make it to Rome to see them, definitely go!

Grazie Rome and Dorothy Circus Gallery!

I’m back home in Canada now after an amazing trip and opening reception at Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome! Italy, you slay me with your sheer unrivaled beauty, and all your amain pizza and gelato.

This trip was such an amazing experience that brought me back to my Italian roots. I spent a lot of time with my family getting back in touch with my Italian side. I adore the culture and the language so I cant’ tell you how fun it was to speak it 24/7 during my trip! It’s always great to stay in touch with your culture.

I explored a lot of the cities art. Spent hours studying various masterpieces until my eyes started swirling. Its going to be really fun to incorporate what I saw and was inspired by into my art now.

A big and humungous thank you to the ladies of Dorothy Circus. They were so lovely and wonderful. The show is spectacular and the opening was unbelievable. Thank you to the fans and supporters who came by. I was pretty excited to meet Paolo and see Alessia Lannetti at the opening. I was surrounded by lovely people and amazingly talented artists.
I have so much to share and learn and give thanks to this trip!
I hope that my artwork can bring as much joy to Rome as Rome brought to me. If anyone would like to contact the gallery to enquire about making one of my paintings all their own to love and cherish please contact sales@dorothycircusgallery.com.
Big hugs Roma I will miss you!

Take a look at these beauties! I signed the prints from my Women’s Day release before I left for Rome, and the prints are on their way to my team so they can be sent home soon! Keep an eye on your inboxes for shipping updates on your Nips and Kitty Titties prints.

Because of your support, over $400 was donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation! Thank you for making my first Women’s Day fundraising effort a big success!
