Color Ink Book – Camilla d’Errico Coloring Contest

Right before San Diego Comic-Con we announced that Camilla would be a featured artist in the Color Ink Book Vol. 12 and cover artist for one of the limited-editions. You can check out the blog post for a bunch of stellar images from previous editions of the book, which gives fans the opportunity to D.I.Y. color the work of famous artists all around the world.

The 2011 edition of the Color Ink Book also features an excellent cover by fellow pop-artist Tara McPherson that you can order from the Color Ink Book website.

To celebrate the public launch of this fantastic 100+ page collection, we’re hosting a special D.I.Y. Coloring Contest with two different ways to enter! The contest runs from now until September 30th and is open to everyone worldwide, so don’t delay as time is running out! (We’ve reduced shipping prices to make it easier!)

Option #1:

1) Order a copy of the Color Ink book Vol. 12 from the online store. (The books have to be shipped from the warehouse, so you’ll want to order soon to ensure you have time to create!)

2) Choose any Camilla d’Errico image from the book to color. You can scan the image to color digitally, or color with any medium you decide.

3) Scan, or take a photo of, your completed page from the book and send it to info [at] camilladerrico [dot] com.

Grand Prize: Four different 12″ x 18″ art prints, plus an original page from Color Ink Book Vol.12 that has been colored and signed by Camilla d’Errico.

Option #2:

1) Download Camilla’s black and white Color Ink Book cover image – “Wireseat” – below by right-clicking-save-as.

For those of you who want to be a little different, we’ve also posted two special black and white images from the Color Ink Book Vol. 12 – “Crocodile Fisherman” and “The Deer God’s Coma” – that you can color for the second option entry on the Facebook and Deviant Art page, where we’ll be posting entries as they are sent to us.

Good luck to all the contestants! And remember, be original! We want to see what you can do!

2011 SDCC Color Ink Book – Carrying in the tradition of artists like Ron English, Alex Pardee, Joe Ledbetter and several other incredibly talented people, Camilla has created the cover image to Color Ink Book’s latest DIY art volume. Included in the collection will be at least twelve, classic pieces by Camilla d’Errico that can be colored. The book will not be on-sale until August, so those who get copies at SDCC will have special, advance versions.

Alternative Cover to Grant Morrison Documentary ‘Talking with Gods’ – At the request of director Patrick Meaney, Camilla has created a special, alternative cover to the Grant Morrison documentary ‘Talking with Gods’ that will be available at the Halo-8 booth (M-03 in the small press area). Fans made remember that Grant Morrison has plans to work with Camilla on a title called ‘The New Bible’ that has yet to be given a release date.

The ‘Womanthology’ Collection – Although the book from IDW will not be published for a few more months, several contributors will be attending SDCC, and no doubt people will be talking about the successful funding of the all-female anthology, profits of which will be donated to charity.

New T-Shirts, Handbags, & Products – Following the conclusion of SDCC, Camilla d’Errico will have a brand-new online store that will feature new shirts, bags, prints, and other products. Some of these items will be available at Booth #4723, and can be purchased before the general public.

Sold-Out First Editions of the ‘Femina & Fauna’ Art Book – Dark Horse Comics has sold-out of the first printing of ‘Femina & Fauna’ and second printing editions will not be available for a while, however, we will have a very select number of the books for sale that Camilla can sign.

As you can see there’s a lot going on, but all of the projects are very exciting! We hope to see you at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, and be sure to follow all of the events on Facebook and Twitter as we’ll be updating fans with photos and news from the convention!

Color Ink Book at San Diego Comic-Con

The announcements for San Diego Comic-Con keep on coming! Today, we’re happy to announce that Camilla will be the cover artist for the latest Color Ink Book! We’ve teased the cover image before, but now we’re able to show the world the finished design!

If you don’t know about the project, Color Ink Book is a special black and white collection for people to color their own D.I.Y. images from a series of professional artists. It’s a really great product, and just look at only a few of the amazing covers that have come out in previous editions:

In the latest volume, Camilla will have at least twelve of her classic black and white art pieces that can be colored and customized, including a special black and white version of the cover image itself. The exact titles of all the works are super secret for now, but one will be Crocodile Fisherman, which first debuted at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles. If you forgot what the image looks like, here it is:

The Color Ink Book will be available at SDCC, but only at booth 5569 because the collection will not be on-sale until sometime in August! So, those attending have the chance to get the jump on a copy before the public. Lucky! If you have trouble finding a copy, come see us at booth 4723 and we’ll point you in the right direction. ^_^

Camilla will be doing a signing of the book and her cover at the Color Ink Book table, booth 5569, on Sunday, July 24th, at 11:00am if you would like to get your hands on this special, advance release. And without further delay, here is the final image of the Color Ink Book, titled “Wireseat,” along with the full cover treatment. Hope to see you at SDCC!

If you’re thinking, “Wait a minute, it’s Wednesday, where’s the new art?!” Just scroll down a bit to see a photo of a new sketch. ^_^

Thanks so much to the fans that came out to the Calgary Comic Expo last weekend, you guys basically cleaned out the booth! First, congratulations to all the Shuster Award winners; there were several amazing creators who won this year, including Emily Carroll, Fiona Staples, and the team behind “La Fille Invisible” (The Invisible Girl). Please check out these super talented ladies!

If you happen to be a Redditor, you probably saw this image that made the front page:

This clever gentlemen was actually talking to the booth next to ours about airplanes and art, but it’s neat to be seen in the photo that thousands of people enjoyed. Thanks to those Redditors who noted the art in the background and gave credit!

Things were so busy we didn’t get a chance to take a lot of photos, but here are a few, just click on any of them to see a bigger size:

Here’s a sketch from the show!

Just a couple more bits of news. First, thanks again for participating in the email and Facebook contests we’ve been running; prizes and winners are still being contacted. So, sorry for the delays! There’s been a postal strike in Canada. But, don’t worry, the prizes are on the way!

Second, the last of the $20 prints are still available online, but will be gone very soon. And finally, we’re excited to announce that the first printing of “Femina & Fauna: The Art of Camilla d’Errico” is sold out! Dark Horse still has a preview of the book online, and it looks as though Amazon has less than 20 copies left. Yikes!

Well, that’s all the news for now. Thanks again for being so supportive at CCEE, and on Reddit, and everywhere else. There are lots of fun things planned for July as we get closer to San Diego Comic-Con, so look for more announcements soon!

Spectrum 18 Artist List

The Spectrum Fantastic Art 18 List has been announced!  This is the full list.  Last year, Camilla was in the highly touted book for the first time in her career, and three of her pieces have been chosen for Spectrum 18. While we won’t spoil the surprise, we do want to give a shout out to some other artists and friends we know and love, and congratulate them (and all the artists) on their nomination:

Bobby Chiu

Kei Acedera

Frank Cho

Matt Dangler

Brian Despain

Eric Fortune

David Mack

Jim Mahfood

and MANY more …

Speaking of  Bobby Chiu, remember the Tanpopo Drawing Camilla donated to the “Artists Help Japan” fundraiser in Toronto organized by Imaginism Studios?  It sold for over $400, and the event itself raised $20,000.  A tip of the hat to the entire organization and all the artists. To see the art, a video of the event and  more details, check out their  blog.  This is the image of the auctioned art piece:  Tanpopo Tricks!

Transmetropolitan Fundraiser

Today is the last day to pledge money to the Transmetropolitan Art Book project!  I am one of the contributing artists to the book, and it’s a powerhouse of talent. All proceeds from the fundraiser, after printing costs, will be donated to the comic book legal defense fund.

——————————

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

It has been nearly ten years since the release of the final issue of TRANSMETROPOLITAN, the Eisner-nominated comics series from writer Warren Ellis and artist Darick Robertson. We have approached Mr Ellis and Mr Robertson about putting together a brand new art book of original images, and we’re happy to report both of the co-creators will be participating in this project, donating a brand new cover and a foreword for the book!

TRANSMETROPOLITAN combines black humor, political scandal, and moral ambiguity to look into the gonzo mind of an outlaw journalist and The City he inhabits. Aided by his embattled Editor and his two Assistants, the protagonist blazes a path through a futuristic world of skyscrapers and technological wonders, dark alleys and unspeakable depravity.

——————————

This new art book will be a hardcover volume limited to a few thousand hand-numbered copies.  If you want a copy, you must pledge.
