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The ‘Womanthology’ Collection – Although the book from IDW will not be published for a few more months, several contributors will be attending SDCC, and no doubt people will be talking about the successful funding of the all-female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

Catwoman and Phoenix – TFAW CBLDF San Diego Comic-Con Sketches

It’s so exciting to reveal not one, but two special sketches for TFAW’s CBLDF Auction at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con! Just as Catwoman is a dominating character in the world of Batman, Phoenix is one of the most powerful X-Men characters ever created. Both female superheroines also often play the villan, making them two of the most dynamic creations in comics history. And while each is iconic and recognizable in their own right, Camilla’s take on them is wholly original.

For more information about the auction, please visit TFAW’s website. And make sure to mark booth 4723 in your SDCC program guide so that you can pick up on of the exclusive collectors cards featuring one of the sketches below. Only 500 total will be available!

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.

Launch Party Coming Up and SDCC

I’m back, crazy as ever with so much planning! In a few days, this Saturday, the Tanpopo Clothing Release Party is going to hit! Everyone who can come, should come to the Ayden in Tinseltown (Vancouver) for this big event. We’ve designed some really funky clothes – got away from ‘just’ tshirts (although there are also tees) and tried something different; dresses for girls, ties for guys, and some hot hot underwear for both!

This here is a sneak peak at one of the tshirts. It has one of the panels from the Tanpopo Vol 1 book, one of my favorite scenes, actually.  This is not photoshop, btw, this is a modeled shot! The print job is fabulous!

I’ll be blogging again throughout the week as I get more pictures from the printers! I am so excited about this. And the crazy weekend leads up to San Diego Comic Con, of course!  This year, for the first time, I have my own table. I won’t be free to roam around, but I’m happy to have a home base. It’ll be easier to find me too!  N11 Small Press.  I do have a few signing events each day, on top of being at the Image booth 1705 to promote Sky Pirates of Neo Terra.  Here’s the schedule:

skypirates1-previews

Thursday 3:00 pm I’m signing at Hi Fructose stand. I’ll have Vol 10s and there will be some special prints by Hi Fructose for people who stop by.  Booth N. 4939. They call the stand chaotic … I can’t wait!

Friday at 12:45 until 2:00 pm I’ll be at the:  CBLDF Master Sessions: “Who Killed Amanda Palmer?” Life Drawing with Camilla D’Errico, David Mack, & Terry Moore—

I can’t get enough of the description … Bring your sketchbook and witness how illustrative masters Camilla D’Errico, David Mack, and Terry Moore draw from life as internationally renowned performer Amanda Palmer poses at this CBLDF Master Session! Amanda is the creative force behind Who Killed Amanda Palmer?, a book of photographs accompanied with stories by Neil Gaiman, and the critically acclaimed album of the same name. Palmer will establish the mood for the event, while the artists translate her dramatic poses into their own distinctive styles. The original art from this session will be auctioned off on Saturday night at the CBLDF’s auction! Room 30CDE  .

Need I say that I’m quite honoured? Seriously, this is amazing!!

Moving on to Saturday, another CBLDF – this time I’ll be at their booth 1920 to sign the “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” print. There will be 100 of these only and unfortunately no Neil … but there will be me, so I hope that is enough 🙂
