There are three new mini-prints now available, including Cherry Jubilee, The Plane, and Frenemies! As a special treat, all unsigned mini-prints are onsale for 2 for $30, helping you save $10 in case you want to get one as a gift and one to keep.

If you’re looking for something to hang on a wall without having to worry about framing the piece, we’re now offering a new line of Art Blocks that are portable, easy-t0-hang, and still showcase the beautiful work. New images include:

Cherry Jubilee

The Plane

If you really want to set your space apart, we have some incredibly soft and stylish Art Pillows featuring images from Yuuta, No Ordinary Love, and Innocent Eve!

Finally, if you’ve ever had you’re eye on one of the limited-edition Hamburger Disco t-shirts, now’s the time to get one because they’re marked-down from $35 to only $25!

From everyone at d’Errico Studios, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season and safe shopping. If you have any questions about purchasing, be sure to check out new Facebook and Twitter pages where you can ask questions and get feedback about general or specific issues. Thanks for supporting independent artists this year!

Kuro Vinyl Toys Now Available Online

Great news! After months of only being available at the 2011 San Diego Comic Con, the much anticipated Kuro vinyl toys are available online from Inner Sanctum!

There are three different varieties of Kuro vinyl based on the devilish character from Camilla d’Errico’s Tanpopo series – now on MTV Geek and soon to be published by BOOM! Studios – and each variation is still available to order online through the Inner Sanctum store.

Choose from the SDCC Glow In The Dark version, the standard Black & White version, or the customizable DIY version. But hurry! There’s no telling how long these highly collectable figures will be available during the holiday shopping season.

To show everyone how much fun the DIY version can be, d’Errico Studios’ wonderful and lovely assistant Tasha has created some amazing designs of her own that we’re excited to share!

(This one is called Benjamin.)

(This one is called Loki.)

Fantastic job Tasha! Tasha is hard at work on a student project called A Gorey Demise Storybook, and she could use some support. So, use the link to check out the impressive hand-bound book she’s looking to make in the coming weeks.

Finally, we’ve started a special Facebook and Twitter page for people to get in touch with us about any questions or issues in our E-Store. We hope these channels will make it easier for everyone to contact us about ordering merchandise in the coming weeks as people starting looking for gifts.

Thanks, everyone! Hope you’re having a terrific fall!

Minneapolis Institute of Arts Residency

It’s a great honor for Camilla to be selected for the Minneapolis Institute of Arts Artist Residency along with fellow Helmetgirls: Origins writer Joshua Dysart! Both Camilla and Joshua are being invited to be a part of the institute’s Edo Pop! series that follows how 17th-century Japanese prints have influenced artists today.

Things kick off tonight with “Teen Studio: Samurais to Helmetgirls” – a three hour live art demonstration and in-studio talk by Camilla and Joshua.

This Sunday, November 13th is FREE Family Day at the museum from 11:0am to 5:00pm! So tell your friends in the Minneapolis area to come out and see the different works on display. It’s a great opportunity to be inspired by some impressive, historical prints.

For any writers interested in the process, on Wednesday, November 16th from 3:00pm to 4:00pm, Joshua will be speaking about his award-winning graphic novel series Unknown Soldier.

To close the residency, both Camilla and Joshua will be speaking with Katherine Milton, Ph.D, about a variety of subjects in a lecture titled “CrossTalk: Manga, Anime, Comics, and Pop! Contemporary Practices Rooted in Japanese Tradition.” Tickets are available online starting at just $10, or can be purchased at the door, or by calling (612) 870-6323.

Last Day to Fund ‘Tanpopo’ Kickstarter

The level of support that the Tanpopo Kickstarter has receieved has been amazing so far! Thank you so much! With less than 24 hours left, we wanted to show-off Camilla’s colored image for the limited edition slipcase. This exclusive, special edition of the hardcover book will not be available in stores. So, if you want your own copy of the image below, you better visit the Kickstarter page now!

Only One Week Left for ‘Tanpopo’ Kickstarter

Thank you all, again, so much for helping us reach the goal of funding the Tanpopo Kickstarter campaign! If you haven’t watched it yet, please check out this video from Camilla where she talks about what will happen with the extra funds.

With only a week left, and after releasing the numbered and signed print image, we wanted to show fans the new cover of Tanpopo that will be available in March of 2012. The hardcover edition of the book will collect Vol. 1 – 3, as well as some terrific bonus material.

And because we’re feeling so happy, we thought we’d show you the special, limited edition slipcase image! The image is currently only in black and white, but we wanted to make sure everyone knows that the limited edition of the book (starting at only $50) will not be available in stores – this very unique copy of Tanpopo is only for Kickstarter funders.

There are still a few open spots open on the Kickstarter page for fans to purchase an original line-art page from Tanpopo, but only a handful. Other tiers have sold-out, however, there are still plenty of limited edition books available, but only for one more week!

And while we have your attention, don’t forget that the Granimator Contest ends at the end of October! Plus, in case you missed the news, we announced the guest artist line-up for Helmetgirls: Origins, and keep an eye on more developments of the Sky Pirates of Neo Terra video game – coming soon!

First, we hope you’ll come say hello in the Small Press Section (seen in the image above with the red-dotted line around the space on the right of the map) – we’re at Booth 2752 – right on the corner so it’s easy to find.

Next up, you’ve probably already seen the news, but in case you haven’t, it’s so exciting to announce that the Image Comics graphic novel Sky Pirates of Neo Terra is going to become a video game on the iPhone and on Facebook thanks to Day 21 Studios!

And in other video game news, Camilla was chosen as one of only a few select artists to contribute to the Tomb Raider 15th Anniversary Celebration with a piece titled “The Depth” that you can see below!

It’s also a pleasure to see that the Tanpopo Hardcover Edition Kickstarter backed by BOOM! Studios is nearly 70% funded! We recently teased out a chapter break image that will be in the new book, which you can see here.

Don’t forget, we’re still running the Granimator Contest for the iPad until the end of the month, where users get a chance to play with Camilla’s original designs to create their own unique wallpaper image!

‘Sky Pirates of Neo Terra’ To Be Facebook and iPhone Game

You may have seen news of the announcement on The Escapist and CBR, but it’s official – Day 21 Studios, a veteran run, independent video game studio, is announcing the launch of their debut title Sky Pirates of Neo Terra. Designed for gamers ages 10 and up, Sky Pirates offers real-time online multiplayer racing, the first of its kind on Facebook.

An original game by Day 21 Studios with character designs by comic and pop surrealism artist, Camilla d’Errico, Sky Pirates’ unique visual style and thrilling racing offers gaming audiences a different kind of experience with their friends on Facebook than the typical Farm builder.

Sky Pirates takes place in the original setting of Neo Terra, a wondrous world with a rich backstory, forgotten technology and natural magic. The most popular sport in the land is Glidewing racing, which culminates in a Great Race in the valley of Neo Eden. Winning five consecutive Great Races earns the victor the right to name the leader of the Great Tribal Council. This year’s upcoming race has the cruel Pirate King poised for just that honor, one that could throw this peaceful world into turmoil.

Players get to choose their racers and Glidewings from any of the 14 tribes of Neo Terra or customize their own in order to best the Pirate King and five of their friends on over a dozen unique courses in this high-flying aerial racer.

To see more screenshots of the game, along with concept art and more, head over the Sky Pirates Facebook page. And to pre-register for the game’s launch, which automatically enters you in a contest for a chance to win one of five original pages from the graphic novel, please visit the Sky Pirates website.
