Fall News

Hey!  I’m home. Convention season is winding down – only 2 more to go in October, and I can finally settle back into my studio and do some serious, uninterrupted work. Kinda … with so many super cool projects and releases coming up it’s hard to concentrate on the daily art – only because it’s exciting!

.

First of all, for those who missed Fan Expo Toronto and Dragon Con, I’ve posted photos to Flickr!  There are lots of photos of cosplayers dressed as helmetgirls … and a Helmet boy!!! The two conventions were awesome. I swear Toronto felt like San Diego Comic Con!

Then Dragon Con, I was in artist alley along with SO MANY of the most amazing contemporary cool artists like Glenn Barr, The Beast Brothers, Joe Capobianco, Dan May, Greg Simkins, Jason Limon, Brian Despain, Bobby Chui, Travis Louie, Kathie Olivas, and Brandt Peters. The amount of talent in that room was breathtaking and inspiring!

I WILL BE BACK AT BOTH OF THOSE CONVENTIONS IN 2011.  In fact, we’re polling people right now to tell us which conventions you want me to be at in 2011. I can’t go to all of them personally, but I will have a booth at 15 or more cons.  All suggestions are welcome and you can answer here.

.

Also we are in the middle of moving/restructuring the online store.  I’m sorry for the delays in shipping out packages and thanks to those who have placed orders.  We’ll be contacting you individually when your package has been shipped.

With Fall here, we’ll be getting ready for winter and Christmas, which means new merchandise including hand-made JEWELRY … AND a new party in Vancouver.  More news soon, but please SAVE THE DATE for December 10th.  The party will be at The Ayden Gallery!  Special guest host: Buddha Kuro.

.

Lastly, we have tallied votes on the FINE ART PRINTS, and it was really close!  But in the end, the first print to come out will be Canadian Tiger.   This special launch will officially be September 30th (that’s my Bday so I thought it would make it even more special) and will kick off my fine art print releases.

Canadian Tiger

This is how it works:

Print Edition = 100

Size = 18 x 24 (image size 16 x 22)

Price = $100

Each print will be hand-signed and numbered and will come with a certificate of authenticity.

We are also looking at offering the prints pre-framed. If this is an option that interests anyone, please let me know! You can  reply to this blog post or write to me at cderricoinfo@gmail.com.

Thanks!

Dragon Con

I’ve barely had time to unpack from Fan Expo in Toronto and I’m already packing for Dragon Con in Atlanta!  I’ll post pics from Fan Expo really soon, probably just do a combined convention post-mortem next week.

One thing about Fan Expo got me even more excited about Dragon Con – the Helmetgirls Cosplay Competition!  My original Helmetgirls from Toronto were there to show me their new cool helmets.  There will be more of you at Dragon Con, so come by my table to show me your Helmetgirls outfits!  Here’s one sweet gal who came to SDCC:

And of course I can’t let my debut at Dragon Con happen without bringing new merchandise! So get ready because I’ll be locked and loaded down with new stuff, like button packs, stickers, tattoos, clothing, and new prints!  And of course, I’ll have copies of Tanpopo #3 and a few of the GIANT BUDDHA Kuros for anyone who wants a whole lotta lovin’ to take home with them 😉
