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.

My rainbow lovebird pin “Flying Proud” is limited edition and in honour of the LGBTQ community. I strongly believe in the equality of every human-being; and that’s including who someone chooses 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!

‘Tanpopo’ Hardcover Now In Stores + Live Chat with Camilla d’Errico!

After years of publishing the unique original series independently, d’Errico Studios is proud to announce that acclaimed comic book publisher BOOM! Studios (Adventure Time, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Peanuts) has released Camilla d’Errico’s fan-favorite series Tanpopo in a beautiful hardcover edition book to book stores and comics shops everywhere.

First self-published and sold to eager fans at conventions, Tanpopo was serialized through MTV Geek last year before being acquired by BOOM! Studios for a deluxe release this spring. To help fund the high-quality publishing of Tanpopo, Camilla d’Errico and BOOM! Studios partnered on one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns in all of comics in order to provide long time readers with special incentives and gifts that continue to be sent to backers as the regular hardcover edition of the book hits store shelves.

Tanpopo is inspired and narrated by passages from classic literature and poetry. But, Tanpopo is not an illustrated poem nor is it a reinterpretation of literature. It is a unique visual and literary experience that combines a rare, open storytelling format with oriental aesthetics and character development, while bringing long lost or little known classic literature to today’s audience – both young and mature.

In the first three volumes, Tanpopo draws from Faust, Rime of the Ancient Mariner, and Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio to create an experience that is as curious as it is moving. The story follows main character Tanpopo as she attempts to learn how to feel emotions after being freed from her machine-driven, intellectual prison by the devilish character Kuro, who promises the young protagonist true love in exchange for her immortal soul.

Given the amount of consumer and critical support for Tanpopo so far, the first three stories in the newly released hardcover book mark only the beginning of a long and successful line of adventures that fans will be able to enjoy for years to come.

To find out more about Tanpopo, please visit: tanpopoandkuro.com

As a special thank you to all the fans who have supported Tanpopo over the years, Camilla d’Errico will host an hour-long live video chat with Shindig.com on Monday, May 7th at 3:00pm EST! RSVP to the live chat on Eventbrite today!

Fan Expo Vancouver 2012 with Camilla d’Errico

The always excellent Fan Expo Vancouver is next weekend on April 21st & 22nd! We’ll be at booth P26 in Artist Alley, so be sure to come say hello to Camilla d’Errico and the rest of the d’Errico Studios crew! Just take a look at the map to see where we’ll be set up:

At the booth this year, we’ll have some special, limited-edition clothing items that will soon be announced! Attendees of Fan Expo Vancouver will be some of the first to see and purchase the new designs!

Plus, we’ll have available the new Kuro Fox Glass Charms, the prototype of the ‘No Ordinary Love’ bust from Dark Horse Comics, along with some of the first-edition copies of Femina & Fauna that are no longer available in stores, and some new, very beautiful notebooks and journals imported from France.

There will also be some advanced copies of the Tanpopo hardcover from BOOM! Studios available at the booth. If you’re a Kickstarter backer, and would like to arrange to pick up your hardcover, slipcase edition of Tanpopo at the show, please email info@camilladerrico.com to check to see if your copy will be ready in time. Right now, Camilla is very busy adding personalized sketches to the books for Kickstarter backers, but we’ll do our best if you’d rather pick up the book than have it shipped to your home.

Spaces for original sketches are extremely limited this year, but if you’d like to pick up your own, please email info@camilladerrico.com as soon as possible to see if there’s still time to get on the list this year.

Thanks for reading, everyone! And we hope to see you at the show! If you’re planning to attend, RSVP on Facebook and we’ll look for your smiling face. ^_^ Fan Expo Vancouver is going to be great this year!

LYRIC 2012 – “33 Dragon Tears” for Group Show Curated by Glenn Barr

It’s with great pleasure that we announce a brand-new Camilla d’Errico original piece that will be included in celebrated pop-artist Glenn Barr’s special group show at the 323East Gallery titled LYRIC 2012, opening next weekend in Michigan.

Barr’s impressive work has captivated collectors and fans for years, and it’s no surprise as to why – just look at his piece titled “December” below:

“Music and its LYRICS can always stimulate our emotions as well as having us contemplating a visional narrative. Artists have been known to use lyrics as inspiration and with this have created some of the greatest works in the world. This exhibition will illuminate the artist’s personal transcription from a song lyric to canvas.” – Glenn Barr

With Barr’s above statement acting as the framework for the group show, Camilla has created a new work titled “33 Dragon Tears” inspired by the Portland musician Sophe Lux and her song “Elektra 33” from the 2007 album Waking the Mystics.

Other creators in the show include Japanese artist Eimi, the ever iconic Luke Chueh, mind-bender Travis Louie, extraordinary graffiti artist Revok, psychedelic master Beau Stanton, plus Jeff Soto, Tristan Eaton, David Vecchiato, and many more!

If you remember, Camilla participated in Barr’s music-themed show before, creating a pieced titled “Broken” that was inspired by the Gorillaz album Plastic Beach.

Without further delay, here is the public unveiling of  “33 Dragon Tears” by Camilla d’Errico:

The original framed piece will be on display and available for sale. Please contact info@323east.com to arrange a purchase if you would like this piece in your collection.
