New Video Series: Camilla d’Errico Draws

Brand new behind the scenes initiative!  Recently I’ve started posting a weekly (Wednesday) work in progress – sneak peek photo of a project I’m working on and I’m going to expand on that by posting regular (probably bi-weekly) videos!

I’m doing this in two variants:  the videos will be broken up into the longer video, that has some cuts, but is “real time”, and the shorter video that will be set to music, and have more editing, speeding up, etc.

Long Form Videos will be on my Vimeo Channel and Short Form Videos will be on my Youtube Channel.

The first video I posted is the work on the Spider Jerusalem art for the Transmetropolitan Art Book. Enjoy!
