Frequently Asked Questions
Where does Camilla get her inspiration from? How does she come up with her ideas?
Camilla says she’s inspired by a lot of things, from other art and music to words and patterns that catch her interest. Sometimes she gets a part of an idea for a detail or colour and builds a piece around that. She feels her work is very interpretive and emotional, and that it’s neat when a piece means different things to different people. What do you see in her work?
What kind of paint does Camilla use?
Camilla prefers Holbein Aqua Duo paints, which are a water-soluble oil paints. She often uses these paints on wooden panels for her colour pieces, and acrylics and inking pens on canvas. Some pieces Camilla draws by hand, and then colours digitally on her computer.
Can I commission Camilla to do a custom painting or drawing?
Camilla works on many painting, drawing, and graphic novel projects at the same time, as well as traveling to exhibitions and conventions. She doesn’t often have many chances to take custom commission requests. However, you’re welcome to e-mail us at email@example.com if you have a specific inquiry. Keep in mind Camilla’s artwork is considered fine art and is priced accordingly.
I read that Camilla did sketches for her fans at a Convention. Can I get one?
In the past Camilla had done sketches at events but in the past few years she has had to limit the number of sketches available. In the past we have offered a special deal on Friday and Sunday of shows that if you purchase two of her art books, she would do a quick sketch inside one of the books. Though with her current health issues that may no longer be an option at 2022 conventions and moving forward.
Why can’t I order a sketch and have Camilla send it to me?
It breaks down to Camilla’s time. Right now she has to dedicate her time to her paintings and coming up with cool new products for you to buy and love and add to your collection.

I love Camilla’s art can I get a tattoo of it?
Camilla loves when people fall in love with her artwork. We just ask that you purchase a tattoo token from the online store (link to purchase the token) and of course send us photos of the pieces and tag her (@camilladerrico on Twitter and Instagram) in any social media posts (in addition please pass along that request to the tattoo artist as well.)
Can Camilla sign my item?
Camilla is unable to sign items at each individual request. She lives in Cananda and the fulfillment centers we use are in California. There will be times where we do offer signed items in limited quantities so make sure to sign up for the newsletter to be alerted when those items are available.
I heard you get a discount/special access if you’re a Patreon. Is that true?
Yes! Patreons have special access and privileges that other fans don’t get. If you want to know more about that and get in on the cool kid’s club then visit the Patreon page to read up on it (URL for PATREON PAGE)
My print was damaged in the mail. What can I do?
If your print was damaged in transit, please take photos of the packaging as well as the damage occurred to the print itself and send those photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, please keep all material until a resolution has been achieved.
How long will it take my item to ship?
When you order merchandise traditionally it will ship within 5 business days (barring no issues with your shipping address or payment processing). If you ordered prints, they may take up to 7 business days for items to ship as the prints need to be created. We have a split shipping process so for the most part if you have a mixed cart, it will not hold up the order.
I want to order something, but the shipping is high. Why don’t you offer free shipping for everything like Amazon?
Although Camilla has a lot of products and prints, we are still a small company run by three people and two amazing fulfillment companies that assist us greatly. The shipping that is calculated on the website is based on weight of items and dimensions. The events of the past couple of years has driven up shipping costs tremendously and we are working very hard to do our best to offer competitive rates but we will never be able to come close to a multibillion dollar company like Amazon.
