Junebug Release Coming June 21st

I hope you’re all excited for summer. Because I am! And this year’s June Bug Release starts the first official day of summer: June 21st at 9AM PST to my Etsy store! I’ve got so many great goodies coming that I just had to share!

My first ever kimonos are making their online debut for my June Bug Etsy release. And I thought Pink Lemonade was the perfect image to these gorgeous flowing kimonos made by EcoDigiTec – an environmentally conscious company in Burnaby, BC. I’m all about the environment and supporting local businesses – so this was a perfect fit!

I’ve got brand new original art coming your way too! But there are only a few, so make sure you set your alarms so you don’t miss out on one of these adorable fuzzbutt paintings!

Along with original art, there will be new handmade one-of-a-kind jewelry and these June Bug Release rainbow bee hard enamel pins! I had “Rainbuzz” made for the occasion and I think he’s so bright and cheerful – just like a rainbow. There’s limited quantities of this little guy so make sure to snatch him up!

Last – but definitely not least – are my Zodiac bees! The Buzziac bees will be available for the first time as both mini prints and as stickers!

My June Bug Release will be the first time these little fuzzbutts are available since my Zodiac show at the Haven Gallery in May! Get your sign, or a loved one’s sign, as a mini print or get all of the cuties on my “Fire & Water” and “Earth & Air” Buzziac sticker sheets.

And last – but certainly not least – brand new one-of-a-kind handmade necklaces! And they’re in some funky new designs!

So set your alarms for 9AM PST on Friday June 21st and head to my Etsy shop for my Junebug Release! Because the early bee gets the pollen!

Team d’Errico at Anime Ink!

I love tattoos do you?! Team d’Errico is all set up and rocking Anime Ink tattoo convention at Booth 207 in the Greater Richmond Convention Center.

Stop by to say hello and check out all the great goodies! Including the special tattoo flash sheet I made just for the show!

I’m always beyond touched when someone gets my art tattooed. Tattoos will always have a special place in my heart. So if you have a tattoo of my art – make sure to share it! I’d love to see it!

 

Lovebird Release is LIVE!

Alright my lovelies. The Lovebird Release is LIVE! Head over to my Etsy store to snatch up all the awesome new goodies I have waiting for you! This release is in honour of Pride Month. I believe everyone should be free to love.

Get my Royal Lovebird Set as an awesome gift for yourself, someone you love or to share with your special someone.

I’ve also got some brand new one-of-a-kind brooches a necklaces made from the paint palettes I used to make my painting Harmoine from my 2018 solo show “Sky” at the Corey Helford Gallery. She represents the freedom to love and depicts an interracial female couple. Each piece comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Last but not least my Hydie scarves have finally been restocked!

Happy Pride Month everyone! Now go out and spread the love!

Happy New Year! A look back at 2017

Here’s MY personal Best Nine of 2017. ? This year has been a crazy, unexpected whirlwind! Especially for me creatively. So I wanted to look back and choose 9 pics from my feed that I think made a mark on me as an artist. ? It’s important to look back to see how we grow and change and take notes for the future. This year I expressed many sides of my personality, the fun side with my fuzzbutt bees, ? the environmental side with the 3 eyed Ajna, ? the ridiculous side with my zombees. ? I opened up in ways I hadn’t before, like sharing my fan fiction art through Patreon (Bethyl forever!), deciding to channel love over hate with my new @coreyhelfordgallery show “Sky”. I pushed myself technically with “La Madre” one of my biggest most intricate paintings to date, I painted a boy, “Dorian Grey” mixing rainbows and literature, ?? I spent a year completing my rainbow fox, and I brought my love of doll furniture together with my love of custom toys! I published my first ever online comic “Davinchibi” and launched my Etsy with the help of Asami! Tasha, my amazing coordinator knocked it out of the Park this year! She helped me build my Patreon and so much more. ? I did things this year that I hadn’t done before, traveled more than ever and took creative risks. It hasn’t been an easy year, I think many can relate.? This year forced me to push myself to work harder and deal with tragedies. 2017 almost felt apocalyptic. Hate surfaced in ways I didn’t expect and it hurt my heart so gravely that I changed my entire direction for my solo show for Corey Helford next year. I decided to take a stand for my beliefs that ALL humans are equal.? I want my art to inspire and heal, to bring people together, to spread love. I hope that I’ve brought smiles to your faces and been there through the hard times. My new motto is “Love over Hate”.? I have some big plans for next year, I talk about them here on my new Huffington Post interview. You can read it here!  Now that the year is ending it’s time to look forward to what we can accomplish in 2018! ? Stay strong and let your freak flag fly my lovelies!! I can’t thank you enough for all your likes and comments and support. You make me so happy! ? I want to wish you the Happiest New Years ever! Let’s celebrate with love! Big hugs and all my best!

Preview Boxing Week Releases

It’s finally snowing here in Vancouver! It puts me in such a wintery mood, I love it! So I wanted to share a sneak peek at more of the fun goodies and new releases I have coming to Etsy on Dec 26th, 9am PST.

There’s going to be hand-painted designer toys like these little cuties. They’re Kathie Olivas Wandering Misfit toys I’ve hand-painted and made into little characters. Each piece tells a story! They’re a fun way to make an original artwork a part of your collection, but there’s only 1 of each, so check right at 9AM PST during release Dec26 here!

I’ve made fun seasonal sets of postcards and buttons! My postcard set is holiday and festive type images, including some inspired by some of my favorite holiday movies. It was my first time drawing Charlie Brown as a chibi, but I think he came out looking super cute!

These wintery button sets are so fun! They’re 1″ buttons and each set has 4 images. I made a limited amount of them though, so pick one up when they release on Etsy Dec 26 starting 9AM PST!

Buttons aren’t the only things I’ve been making this season! Something about the nippy weather gets me so energized to create! I’ve made brooches, necklaces and rings that are each one-of-a-kind and going to release on Etsy Dec 26 at 9AM PST. Since they’s only 1 of each, if you fall in love with a design, don’t sleep on it! My one-of jewellery usually find homes pretty fast so pick your favorites and add some wearable art to your collection!

Speaking of wearable art! Check out these magnificent looking hoddies and sweatshirts from my official collection with Liveheroes! They’re so soft inside, it’s unbelievable. You have to feel it! I’m going to have a variety of designs and sizes launch Dec 26 at 9AM PST

And beanies too! Look at those big floofy white poofs! These beanies are double-lined so they’re warm and soft, perfect for cold weather! There’s only a few of each though, so don’t miss out when they release Dec 26 at 9AM pst here!

I’ve got sale prices coming to both Etsy and my Custom Print Shop Dec 26-30 too! So if you’ve had your eye on a special print, or hard enamel pins like Sir Reginald, you can find them at special holiday prices.

Prints on Etsy will show on a sale price from Dec 26-30, and you can get 25% off all custom prints on my Custom Print Shop here with the code BOXING17 It’s my first time making custom prints on sale, so if you’ve always wanted to pick up some for your collection, Dec 26-30 is a great time!

That’s not all the fun I have in store for Dec 26! When you order from Dec26-30 I have some fun goodies and bonus thank yous for orders! Orders valued $10+ before shipping get an Oh Deery button I made especially for boxing week while supplies last. And if you order $75+ before shipping, you’ll also get a signed 5×7″ print of “Bad Madeline”!

I’ve also got other surprises for orders like Mr. Velvedeer postcards that will go in to orders at random, and new seasonal stickers to add to orders as a bonus Thank You for your support! It’s a lot to take in but set your alarms and keep your eyes peeled on The Camilla Store on Etsy here for release Dec 26, 12PM PST!

Studio Sneak Peek And Upcoming Events

I’m so excited to show you guys my studio! After months of renovations, it’s all been worth it. This is my sanctuary. My creative safe-haven!  I’m so in love with how everything came together, and how creatively energizing it is to have a dedicated place to channel all my creativity!

Let me give you the tour! This is my computer workstation where I have a Wacom Cintiq touchscreen. These babies are amazing for Photoshop. Highly recommended!

It’s really important to me as a creative and an artist to support my fellow artists and creative friends, so I have a library and collection of books, artworks, toys and other things to creatively energize me through the day! It’s so lovely to be able to have a cup of tea and look through an artbook, or listen to one of my audiobooks surrounded by beautiful things other artists made with love, while I create my own paintings!

Speaking of what I love- look at this little nugget! Loki loves the patio outside my studio, and has his own dishes and favorite sleeping chairs. Just like the little prince he is!

My studio is also where I keep lots of special goodies and one-of-a-kind samples, proofs, and treasures. I’m going to be opening my studio up for invitation-only events, tours and release parties! So if you’d like to sign up for an invitation to my events in my Vancouver BC studio, email info@camilladerrico.com !
