Hello, Kitty! One of Sanrio’s most beloved  characters is being celebrated with her own convention, Hello Kitty Con LA. Hello Kitty has been an enduring part of Camilla’s life since childhood, and the subject of several paintings for official Sanrio events and exhibitions. So when Sanrio and Kitty Con invited Camilla to contribute as a featured guest artist, the answer was undeniably, yes!

Kitty Con will run Oct 30 – Nov 2 at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, Little Tokyo, LA.

Camilla has created a new original painting for Sanrio’s official event, which will be available exclusively at Hello Kitty Con LA! Camilla’s new painting, titled “Kitty Berry Kiss Kiss”, features Hello Kitty with her hairbow made of strawberry slices- which are also butterflies! Camilla’s penchant for yummy rainbow melts is present in this delicious piece, with Hello Kitty’s cute strawberries on her dress melting into the desert-like texture of the rainbow swirls.

I’m super enthused to be part of Glenn Barr’s show, Lyric. All the pieces are inspired by music and mine is called Broken, inspired by Gorillaz and their newest album Plastic Beach.

The next show is a last-minute but very important fundraiser put on the Sweet Streets, called #PrayforJapan and it takes place at JapanLA. I’m donating a Canadian Tiger and a Zebramilk Artist Proof from the limited edition series.

Hello Kitty Artist Party

Hello and happy Friday to everyone!

It’s already November, can you believe it?  I had no trips planned for November since I have to work on Sky Pirates issues 4 and 5 this month but how could I say no when Sanrio and Japanla asked me to go to LA for the Hello Kitty Meet the Artists party?? The whole event is organized by Sanrio & Japanla in collaboration with Juxtapoz Magazine.

For all the info on the party, check out the Japanla Blog.  I’ll be live painting at 6 pm, and before me is Angry Woebots and Peekaboo Monster. All of our pieces will be auctioned off for charity.  Then, at 7 pm, more of the amazing Hello Kitty artists will be joining in and we’ll all be painting a giant canvas together.  You can also make your own tshirt, with live screen printing going on from 4 to 9 pm.

Come out to the party, to meet the artists, and to have a go at the giant collaborative Hello Kitty canvas we’ll all be painting on from 7 pm to 11 pm. This is your chance to join in on the creative fun and doodle, draw and design your Hello Kitty dreams away!

So many people commented and asked about prints of my piece, Hello My Kitty Land, and your wish has been granted! Japanla is releasing 35 giclee prints: 25 on paper and 10 very special ones on wood panels (these are all signed and numbered by me, of course!).

So, twist my rubber arm, and off I go!   See you tomorrow night in LA!
