Hand Painted No Ordinary Love Statue

AttemptedMurder_logos1sm

Hi guys! I’m Tasha, Camilla’s operations coordinator- her helper and executive llama extraordinaire. I get to share the cool news and projects Camilla works on here on the blog, and we’d like to share a Camilla project I’ve put together. I’ve hand-painted one of Camilla’s No Ordinary Love statues in a different colorway I’m calling “Attempted Murder”, patterned after Camilla’s painting “Aida”.

I’ve repainted the statue from top to bottom in the new palette, with little sculpted mice and eggs in her hair. The original No Ordinary Love statues are Blue & White – even the white crows have blue tinting in them.

Camilla is an amazing artist and mentor, and it’s a pleasure to get to share how her work inspires the painting I do. This one-of-a-kind colourway will be with me at my Designer Con booth #911 in Pasadena this weekend, November 8-9 at the Pasadena Convention Center.  If you’re in the area, swing by and say Hi!

No Ordinary Love Statue Releases Internationally

Camilla's Fine Art Statue based on her painting No Ordinary Love

 
 

Camilla’s No Ordinary Love Fine Art Statue, a collaboration with Darkhorse Comics and the highly acclaimed Gentle Giant Studios, is now internationally available!

 

The No Ordinary Love Statue stands 8″ tall, meticulously hand-painted to perfection in an edition of 950 pieces worldwide.

 

Camilla’s first bold step into 3D Art creation has been a new and exciting challenge. “As my first statue, and first 3-D render of one of my paintings, it was all a series of firsts for me. I spent a great deal of time going over the details to get the right look. With a series of still images of the 3-D model I was able to visualize so much more of the girl than I had even conceived. Now I had to think about what the back of her dress looked like, what her hair shaped into…it was really neat to imagine her in 3-D space. I’ve never had that before with my paintings.”

 

Camilla discusses more about the Statue release in her new interview with Darkhorse Here

 
 

Camilla's Statue takes on No Ordinary Love 'In the round' as 3D art!

 

Each statue comes numbered with a signed & numbered certificate of authenticity.

The statue may also be ordered through most Comic Book Shops and Hobby shops internationally; Ask your local shop to order through Previews Diamond Direct today.

Dark Horse Announces Camilla d’Errico ‘No Ordinary Love’ Limited-Edition Bust

One of the brightest stars of pop-surrealism, Camilla d’Errico is known as an artist, designer and graphic storyteller. Now, she is set to debut perhaps her most collectible item yet, as Dark Horse is very proud to bring forward her first deluxe sculptural piece, an intensely-detailed bust based upon her painting “No Ordinary Love”.

“’No Ordinary Love’ is a piece that is very dear to me,” Camilla d’Errico reflected, “ its the visual interpretation and expression of my feelings for my ‘one and only’, so you can imagine how exciting this is that this particular piece was chosen!”

Slated for a late June release, the meticulously-painted sculpture measures approximately 8” tall and 5” in width, making it a diminutive but exquisite jewel of a statuette, packaged in full-color collector box with a Certificate of Authenticity.

The beautiful sculpture is set to make its public debut at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City for Toy Fair 2012. Upon release, this piece will be strictly limited to only 950 numbered copies for worldwide distribution, and is sure to sell out.

“Translating Camilla’s work into three-dimensions was a challenge,” Dark Horse’s David Scroggy observed, “but with a lot of help from Camilla and the skilled artisans at Gentle Giant Studios, we were able to arrive at a piece that is unmistakably d’Errico, with all the subtle nuance and details of sculpture and paint application that her audience would expect.”

Camilla d’Errico supervised every aspect of the sculpting and paint application as the piece took shape, providing additional reference, commentary and color notes throughout the prototyping process.

The painting “No Ordinary Love” was included in the Dark Horse published art book of d’Errico’s work, Femina and Fauna, which has gone into multiple printings, being found in a diverse array of retail venues around the world.

Be sure to keep up-to-date with all of Camilla’s projects by following her on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.

 

 

Another Zombuki!

Happy Friday!  Remember the Zombuki doll inspired by my Disassembled Tears image that appeared in the blogosphere a few months ago? Well that lovely doll was thanks to it’s equally lovely creator, Brigitte and her wild imagination.  We both loved the doll so much (as did the person who bought it for their collection) that we thought — another?

.

This time the doll is mine all mine! We went with the inspiration from No Ordinary Love, and Brigitte set off to do her doll making magic.  Here are a few work in progress shots, and then the final!  I’m thrilled with how it turned out and can’t wait to have it at home with me.
