1st Place – (An original sketch by Camilla d’Errico.)


2nd Place – (Two randomly selected 12″ x 18″ art prints.)


Honorable Mentions – (One randomly selected 12″ x 18″ art print.)




A big, big thank you to everyone who entered. Seeing so many talented people turn in colored pages was really special. Don’t forget – we’re still running a Granimator Contest as well! You can see all of the entries to the contest in the Facebook album. ^_^

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.

Camilla d’Errico is Nominated for a 2011 Eisner Award – From Image Comics’ ‘Fractured Fables’ collection that was originally part of the 2010 Free Comic Book Day, “Little Red Riding Hood” by Bryan Talbot and Camilla d’Errico has been nominated for Best Short Story in the 2011 Eisner Awards.

Collectable Kuro Vinyl Figures – There are three versions that will be available, including a standard black, a blueberry glow-in-the-dark SDCC exclusive, and a DIY model than Camilla will customize. Prices range from $25 to $50 for the figures.


Limited Edition Original Sketches – Only fifteen sketches will be available this year, and prices start at $100 for single character drawings, as seen in the photo below. Email cderricostore [at] gmail [dot] com to pre-order your sketch, which can be picked up at Booth #4723.


Original Art for TFAW’s CBLDF Auction – Camilla has created two original sketches, seen below, of Catwoman from DC Comics’ ‘Batman’ series, and Phoenix and Cyclops from Marvel Comics’ ‘X-Men’ series. Those pieces, in addition to any pieces created during Camilla’s Masters Session on Saturday afternoon, will be auctioned off on Saturday night at the Hilton Bayfront. Those unable to attend SDCC can bid on the pieces via email, more details here. In addition, 500 collectable sketch-cards featuring the original art below will be available at Booth #4723.



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:

[Joe Ledbetter]


[Jim Mahfood]


[Luke Chueh]

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!
