Thanks so much to everyone who participated in the Tomopop contest in celebration of the new Tanpopo website! We’ll announce the winners soon. Even though the contest is over, you can always ask Kuro a question, but don’t be surprised if his answers are vague, confusing, or even down right naughty!
Did you see the interview with Camilla on MTV Geek? No?! Okay, well, first sit down. Ready? Ok.
Josh Dysart (B.P.R.D., Unknown Soldier) and Camilla d’Errico are teaming up to create “Helmetgirls: Origins” – a brand new graphic novel that follows Pia, a girl who finds a mysterious helmet in a steam-punk wasteland!
So far, no other details have been released, and a publisher hasn’t been chosen. But, keep checking here and on the Facebook page to get the latest news. It’s so exciting! Click here to see the full interview.
Finally, if you’re in England, you should stop by the London Miles Gallery to see Literal.eyes, a new exhibit opening Thursday, May 12th. The show features only thirty different artists who have translated some of their favorite literature into visual work, much like the Tanpopo series, but limited to a single piece.
Camilla’s addition to the gallery is based on the famous opera “Aida” by Guiseppe Verdi, fist performed in 1871. Aida is an Arabic female name that means visitor, and the opera follows the story of the Ethiopian princess, brought to Egypt as a slave, and a military commander named Radames who must disobey the Pharaoh in order to love her. Camilla’s piece is also titled “Aida” and can be seen below.
