Hello, hello! Last night I was busy painting murals and giant 48×72″ canvases for the install of the Winter Release Party show at Ayden Gallery. Here’s a work in progress – literally of me working – on one of the canvases. The other one will be kept a suprise until Friday night ^_^ since it is a brand new image, never before seen from the depths of my mind!
This is Rocket Ride! And she is also the subject of one of the t-shirt designs that are especially for the party! Here are some lame-o mock-ups, which will have to do for now because we’ve all been running around like mad getting ready for the party. So excuse the Photoshop, but you get the picture!
And since one design is never enough, I wanted to get a little inverse action happening on a recent Internet favorite – Croc-o-Hug, so this is what we’ll have for guys and girls!
The bestest part of the night will be the CUSTOM T-SHIRT action! I’ll customize, right at the party, 20 t-shirts. So if you want one you have be quick to get there. Doors open at 7:00 pm. Custom tees are $50 and the printed tees are $40. Tomorrow morning I’ll post the last update! Tonight is final set-up and finishing touches. Remember: Adyen Gallery. Tomorrow. Fun!
Hey everyone, there’s been so many art shows going on and fun and exciting new work to share with you! You may have heard or seen postings and photos about a custom Gibson guitar … well it’s all true and its for a REALLY cool show happening in Miami! It’s the Art Assault Custom Gibson Guitar Show. I can’t show you the whole, finished guitar, but here are some sneak peeks at my hand painted Helmetgirl-Gibson-Guitar! And in case anyone is wondering, it’s a Kramer 211FR.
Here is some show info, including the other artists — what an unreal line-up! Michael Lau, Nakanari, Pete Fowler, Christian Jacobs (Yo Gabba Gabba), 123Klan, Matt Waldman (Nooka), Camilla d’Errico, Ashley Wood, Long Vo, Lebo, and Oscar-winning actor/artist Jeff Bridges.
There’s also a TOY SHOW component sponsored by Kidrobot with a 20″ Custom Dunny Exhibit

Proud to say that all the proceeds from the auction go to the Gibson Foundation that focuses on projects that help children with education, music and arts, and overall well-being.
On Friday Thinkspace will be celebrating 5 years of being one of LA’s coolest contemporary galleries, and they are opening a group show with 48 artists that represent their past, present and future. The show is simply called the V Year Anniversary Show.
This is my painting, called “Where the Wild Things Squirm”. It’s Helmetgirl and tentacle goodness! It’s 16 x 20, oils on wood panel, and framed. Interested in buying the original? Email Andrew Hosner: email@example.com. For this show, Thinkspace interviewed all the artists with 5 questions, and mine are here.
’5 Years / 5 Questions’ with Camilla d’Errico
What were you doing back in 2005 when Thinkspace started?
I was studying Illustration and Graphic Design at Capilano College in Vancouver, BC. Living for the first time away from my family and friends hatching a new path for myself. I started showing in galleries and found my passion in art.
Name 5 things you can’t live without in your studio?
Music. My Mac. Anime figures. Grapes. Art books and manga.
Where do you hope to be 5 years from now?
Hopefully my series Helmetgirls will be in full swing and I’ll be drawing that feverishly, along with Tanpopo and a whole world of figures and possibly producing my first anime. In five years from now I also hope to be living 4 months of the year in South East Asia in a remote little village, painting the days away, creating paintings that really re-inspire me!
What have you got coming up in 2011?
The release of my art book published by Dark Horse Deluxe and a toy line. I’ll be illustrating a fantasy graphic novel with a French publisher and a comic book for Spanish singer Monica Naranjo. As for paintings I’ll be doing a few very select group shows and working on a new body of paintings for Opera Gallery in New York.
I won’t be at the opening, but would highly recommend to anyone to go to this show if you can!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
We had a great weekend bringing Camilla’s booth to the small town where she grew up and graduated high school. Nestled in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Lumby, just celebrated their annual Lumby Days Festival and this was the first chance for our town to see Camilla’s creations.
The response was amazing as people remembered her from high school and how she was always drawing and sharing her big dreams. There were even more people who became instant fans when they fell in love with Camilla’s artwork. One girl knew her from el Kartel in Vancouver and was totally shocked to find our booth at Lumby Days – 5 hours away.
This little guy spent a lot of time just soaking it all in. To view more pictures, please follow this link to flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/40669587@N04/sets/72157624289383344/
Next on the con schedule is ANIME EXPO LA – July 1-4 – our first time ever at Anime Expo will find us at Booth #753. Can’t wait to see you all there!

Get ready for the Munky King, Noferin Jibibut Custom Show! The show opens Thursday, April 8th (yikes that’s tomorrow!!). The line up of artists who participated is wicked! (yes I’m reviving this term now) 😉 and what they’ve come up with is mind boggling and brings big smiles to your face.
The preview for the show is now up, but apparently it isn’t complete, so those lucky people who live in LA or who can get there easily will have to see them all in person at the Munky King Melrose location.
And even though I’ve sent these out before, here are some sneaks of my piece. It is called ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Helmet’. Or … Cuckoo’s Helmet for short. The preview page for my piece with all the info about buying, etc. is HERE.
