Thanks for the amazing Vancouver Helmetgirls Signing!

Golden Age Collectibles set up a beautiful upstairs signing area!

 
 
Saturday, March 9th, Vancouver’s Golden Age Collectibles hosted Camilla’s signing event celebrating her new Helmetgirls artbook recently released by Dark Horse Comics. Golden Age was packed with fans and supporters lined up down the stairs, across the shop, and nearly out the door!
 
Darkhorse made some beautiful exclusive prints to celebrate the artbook launch, with a design taken from the artbook itself.
 
 

 
 

Camilla signed and gave away the whole stack of prints Golden Age Collectibles had, with every artbook purchaser also being entered into a special raffle to win this retired limited edition Camilla skatedeck.
 
 

 
 

Some super-fans brought Camilla fanart and gifts, while otheres brought some of their special favourite Camilla pieces for signing. Thank you to everyone for coming out- some fans from as far away as Prince George, and some fans skipping work or dentist appointments, and for fans blogging your enjoyment for Camilla’s signing!
 
 


 
 

 
 

 
 

 
 

 
 

 
 
 

Sunday Blog Mention

 

Camilla has been taking an interest in causes and charities that need our help, often animal-related, and would like to share a special one she found.

 
 

La Lumière des Chevaux Shelter

 

La Lumière des Chevaux is a shelter in the south of France that saves and heals old, abandoned, or previously abused horses and other animals. The shelter is putting on an artist postcard projust to raise money, with more details on their facebook here. These beautiful and intelligent animals look much happier in their new caring shelter-home.

Holy custom Kuros, Batman!
We’ve spotted 2 incredible new custom vinyl Kuros by two incredible artists. Below in Blue is “Kagekuro-ling” by
Shadoe Delgado. Shadoe’s creatures, or Shadow-lings, feel perfectly at home on the Kuro platform with its mask and the sculptural feel of the form. Shadoe has one Kuro left to make into a Shadow-y little friend if you drop him a line at shadoedelgado.com

 
 

 
 
Look at this creepy little fellow! Cute, right? Creepy cute? That’s it, and that’s something artist Jason Jacenko of 696 Ink loves to imbue his custom painted toys with. How did he know Kuro was a Hello Kitty fan?
 
 

 

If you have a custom Kuro, drawing, Camilla tatoo or something to share, or questions and comments, drop us a line at info@camilladerrico.com !

Minneapolis Institute of Arts Residency

It’s a great honor for Camilla to be selected for the Minneapolis Institute of Arts Artist Residency along with fellow Helmetgirls: Origins writer Joshua Dysart! Both Camilla and Joshua are being invited to be a part of the institute’s Edo Pop! series that follows how 17th-century Japanese prints have influenced artists today.

Things kick off tonight with “Teen Studio: Samurais to Helmetgirls” – a three hour live art demonstration and in-studio talk by Camilla and Joshua.

This Sunday, November 13th is FREE Family Day at the museum from 11:0am to 5:00pm! So tell your friends in the Minneapolis area to come out and see the different works on display. It’s a great opportunity to be inspired by some impressive, historical prints.

For any writers interested in the process, on Wednesday, November 16th from 3:00pm to 4:00pm, Joshua will be speaking about his award-winning graphic novel series Unknown Soldier.

To close the residency, both Camilla and Joshua will be speaking with Katherine Milton, Ph.D, about a variety of subjects in a lecture titled “CrossTalk: Manga, Anime, Comics, and Pop! Contemporary Practices Rooted in Japanese Tradition.” Tickets are available online starting at just $10, or can be purchased at the door, or by calling (612) 870-6323.

Only One Week Left for ‘Tanpopo’ Kickstarter

Thank you all, again, so much for helping us reach the goal of funding the Tanpopo Kickstarter campaign! If you haven’t watched it yet, please check out this video from Camilla where she talks about what will happen with the extra funds.

With only a week left, and after releasing the numbered and signed print image, we wanted to show fans the new cover of Tanpopo that will be available in March of 2012. The hardcover edition of the book will collect Vol. 1 – 3, as well as some terrific bonus material.

And because we’re feeling so happy, we thought we’d show you the special, limited edition slipcase image! The image is currently only in black and white, but we wanted to make sure everyone knows that the limited edition of the book (starting at only $50) will not be available in stores – this very unique copy of Tanpopo is only for Kickstarter funders.

There are still a few open spots open on the Kickstarter page for fans to purchase an original line-art page from Tanpopo, but only a handful. Other tiers have sold-out, however, there are still plenty of limited edition books available, but only for one more week!

And while we have your attention, don’t forget that the Granimator Contest ends at the end of October! Plus, in case you missed the news, we announced the guest artist line-up for Helmetgirls: Origins, and keep an eye on more developments of the Sky Pirates of Neo Terra video game – coming soon!

New York Comic Con Announcements

October is upon us, which means it’s time for New York Comic Con, one of the biggest comic and anime conventions in the world! There’s so much to announce this year, so let’s get to it!

First, we hope you’ll come say hello in the Small Press Section (seen in the image above with the red-dotted line around the space on the right of the map) – we’re at Booth 2752 – right on the corner so it’s easy to find.

Next up, you’ve probably already seen the news, but in case you haven’t, it’s so exciting to announce that the Image Comics graphic novel Sky Pirates of Neo Terra is going to become a video game on the iPhone and on Facebook thanks to Day 21 Studios!

And in other video game news, Camilla was chosen as one of only a few select artists to contribute to the Tomb Raider 15th Anniversary Celebration with a piece titled “The Depth” that you can see below!

It’s also a pleasure to see that the Tanpopo Hardcover Edition Kickstarter backed by BOOM! Studios is nearly 70% funded! We recently teased out a chapter break image that will be in the new book, which you can see here.

Don’t forget, we’re still running the Granimator Contest for the iPad until the end of the month, where users get a chance to play with Camilla’s original designs to create their own unique wallpaper image!

And last, but certainly not least, there will be a special update on the Helmetgirls: Origins graphic novel at NYCC – so keep your eyes and ears peeled to the Facebook and Twitter channels, as well as this blog to see the news when it breaks out into the public!

‘Helmetgirls: Origins’ – New Graphic Novel Coming in 2012

You may remember that Camilla teased that Helmetgirls: Origins was being developed in an MTV video at Emerald City Comic-Con earlier this year. Well, it’s now official – Helmetgirls: Origins is scheduled for a release in 2012!

Fellow Eisner-award nominee Joshua Dysart (B.P.R.D., Unknown Soldier) will write the new original graphic novel, and Camilla d’Errico will provide art for the 140-page book inspired by her Helmetgirls portraits. As a sneak peak, here are some behind-the-scenes sketches of the characters!

[Click either sketch page for a larger view.]

We’ve recently launched a new Helmetgirls website that features information about the characters and features an interactive fan wall, and finished a very successful event at the University of British Columbia where several Helmetgirl cosplayers turned out.

Full details of the Helmetgirls: Origins graphic novel will be revealed at this year’s New York Comic Con, where more announcements for the Tanpopo series, which recently began running on MTV Geek, will also be made public. To see more images of Helmetgirls, please visit the Facebook gallery.

A special art print of the Helmetgirls: Origins teaser poster called “Caverns”, seen above, is now available for purchase in the online store, and is a part of the limited time 2 for $30 print sale going on now until August 31st.
