Thank You FanX Salt Lake City!

What a fun weekend! Thank you FanX Salt Lake City Comic Con and all the superfans and supporters who visited me at the show! It warms my heart to see so many smiling faces and spread art-joy to you all!

No comic con can be complete without a little nerding-out at cosplay. Check out this amazing Sharknado that whipped through to say Hi! My neighbor at the next booth kept an eye out, ha ha.

Thank you to everyone who came to my Pop Manga Mermaids coloring panel, and to the convention organizers who made everything happen! I had a blast getting to return to Salt Lake City and see the sights, sign everything and meet everyone! My next guest artist appearance is at Edmonton Expo Sept 21-23. See you soon, Edmonton!

Camilla’s Whirlwind Week Wrapup

What an amazing week of adventures! Camilla is back from her exciting double-trip to San Francisco CA and Phoenix AZ. Camilla visited San Francisco to film brand new instructional How-To-Draw classes with the Creativebug team. The team decorated the set in a delightful collection of Camilla goodies for the occasion.

Camilla’s beautifully shot, high-quality video classes are slated to release in March on Creativebug’s website. You can sign up now with Creativebug here! Camilla and the Creativebug team live-streamed to Creativebug’s Facebook. You can check out the full recording of the stream!

Thank you so much to everyone who came out and visited Camilla’s Kinokuniya Books San Francisco location Meet & Greet! Camilla had a blast chatting with everyone, signing books, doing sketches, and sharing her books with fellow art-lovers.

Lots of travelling means beautiful sights, and airport sketching sessions! One double-rainbow later, Camilla was on her way to Phoenix AZ for Creativation convention.

Visitors to Creativation convention Baker & Taylor booth #1425 got a chance to visit with Camilla and watch her live painting and live drawing demonstrations up-close. Camilla began a brand new painting for her Dorothy Circus Gallery showing in Rome, coming March 31th. Check out Camilla’s weekend progress!

Online fans on Instagram were treated to 3 days of Camilla Live-Streaming while she painted and drew, chatting with fans and taking questions in real-time. Follow @camilladerrico for more upcoming streams in the near future!

Thank you to everyone who tuned in to the streams, visited at Creativation, and to the teams at Baker & Taylor, Random House Books, Creativebug and Kinokuniya Books for their wonderful support!

Camilla loves you, San Francisco and Phoenix, and is excited for more future shenanigans and art-sharing events to come!
