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The ‘Womanthology’ Collection – Although the book from IDW will not be published for a few more months, several contributors will be attending SDCC, and no doubt people will be talking about the successful funding of the all-female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!

If you’ve ever attended a show with Camilla, you probably seen her working on sketches like the ones below:

Emerald City Comic Con

WonderCon

Calgary Comic Expo

Because the demand for sketches has been so high, we are opening up pre-orders for only 15 sketches this year at San Diego Comic-Con. Sketches must be pre-paid and picked up at booth 4723 during the convention. All sketches come on 9 x 12 art paper. Single character sketches start at $100, and multi-character sketches start at $150. Please email cderricostore [at] gmail [dot] com to arrange a one-of-a-kind piece of original art. Similarly, if you would like to arrange to pick up one of only a few of 100-limited-edition Black Rabbit Kaleidoscope fine art prints, please email to schedule receiving the certificate of authenticity as well.

Those are the big announcements for those looking to pick up something special at San Diego Comic-Con, but there is much more going on as well. Camilla’s “Wireseat” is the cover to the 2011 SDCC Color Ink Book, and an alternative cover to the Grant Morrison documentary ‘Talking with Gods’ by Camilla will also be available! Just click the links for more information.

In addition to being nominated for an Eisner Award, it’s a privilege for Camilla to be a part of TFAW’s CBLDF Auction and has created two pieces – Catwoman & Phoenix, look for more details about how you can bid on the unreleased original art in the coming days. For participating in the auction, TFAW has been kind enough to pledge 500 limited-edition cards that feature Camilla’s piece that can be picked up at booth 4723! Want to know what the original looks like? Here’s a hint – the image is very well known in the comic community. >_^

Since we’re letting some secrets slips, here’s a couple more – fans of Tanpopo are going to get a huge gift in about one month from now, and fans of Sky Pirates of Neo Terra will have a new, online game to play soon. Okay! That’s all the secrets for now!

Sky Pirates of Neo Terra Have Landed!

September 30th is not only an eventful day because *ahem* I turn … ha ha!  I’ll never tell!  But yes, the 30th IS my birthday and I’m going to treat myself to a nice weekend away, after making a flash appearance at V-Con on Friday.  V-Con is a comic book convention held in Vancouver.

Why is the 30th so extra special this year? Because it is a Wednesday and we all know that it means that new comic books hit stores.  Sky Pirates of Neo Terra, Issue 1, published by Image Comics, written by Josh Wagner, created by Sean Megaw, and drawn by ME, hits stores!!!!!

We’ve been working with the most amazing team – Josh, Simon Bork (colorist), Ed Brisson (letters) and Tim Daniel (packaging). It is energizing and exciting and we’ve got a nice flow going amongst us.  We’re well underway with issue 3 right now, for the series of 5.

I’d highly suggest you hit comic book stores to pick this up — Sky Pirates is based on the Nintendo DS and Wii game that is releasing worldwide in Spring 2010.  The artwork for the entire game is also ‘of my hand’ and I’m very proud to be a part of such a fantastic property!  Ben 10 who????  Watch out now, we’re taking over!

Check out the website for the game – Sky Pirates of Neo Terra.  And of course, buy the comic!!!!!
