The C.O.P. Guide to Etiquette – Strychinin Gallery Berlin

It’s a pleasure to announce the opening of The C.O.P Guide to Etiquette show at the Strychinin Gallery in Berlin, Germany – a brand-new art opening that runs until September 4th, based around female artists creating their own interpretation of Victorian-era guides.

The original Camilla d’Errico piece is titled “Bad Table Manners” and is available for sale:

“A lady, also, should not be ravenous at table; neither should she talk of eating or of the dishes.”—The Habits of good society : a handbook for ladies and gentlemen, 1866. [Click for a larger view.]

The show is being presented by an awesome Australian magazine called Chicks On Powertrips, and features some plaster model casts of different celebrity’s breasts that have been painted by famous artists to promote the non-profit cancer organization Keep A Breast.

A cute store on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles, California called JapanLA is having its 5th Year Anniversary Party, and an original Camilla d’Errico will be on display! The opening of the art show kicks-off on Saturday, June 4th at 7:00pm. You can RSVP on Facebook to invite friends, and so you don’t forget. ^_^

Here’s a quick look at the piece that will be on display in the store for the celebration:


There will be lots of other cool stuff going on at the store that night, so if you live in Los Angeles, be sure to check out the party. Click on the flyer below for a larger view of more details – it has cats on it!

Helmetgirls and London Show

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.

100 Painters Exhibition in Akiba, Tokyo

Today begins a new round of the 100 Painters Exhibition in Akihabara, a shopping area in centeral Tokyo often called “Akiba” for short. The district is famous for its large selection of electronic, computer, videogame, and anime stores that draw tourists from all over the world. While the large majority of artists being featured are from Japan, a very select few contributors from other countries were chosen, including Camilla!

The piece on display is “Playful Bunny,” which debuted at the Red Light Exhibition at Dirty Show in Detroit, Michigan last year. The original piece has already sold, but it’s an honor to be able to have the art shown in such an exciting Tokyo location. Just click on the image for a larger version, but be warned that the art is a bit risqué.


For more details, you can visit the 100 Painters Exhibition website. Do you speak Japanese or know more about the history of the Akiba district? If so, we’d love to learn more. Please write your comments below or on the Faceook page for everyone to see. Thanks!

P.S. – Don’t forget about Mother’s Day! The limited edition handbags are still on-sale, but won’t be available for long!
