The Big Summer Release – Coming Soon!

Hello all my wonderful fans! SDCC is over and its bittersweet. I always have a blast, but I love my time to come home and unwind afterwards.

But just because the madness of SDCC is over doesn’t mean I don’t have something great in store! My Big Summer Release is coming to The Camilla Store on Etsy – Friday, August 9th at 9AM PST/12PM EST.

I’ve brought back all the goodies that were left from SDCC and they will go up for the Big Summer Release. But everything is limited or one-of-a-kind so make sure you get to my Etsy early so you don’t miss out!

First up – KIMONOS! I have VERY limited quantities of my Moonflower and Leo SDCC Official Convention Exclusive Kimonos. They each come with an SDCC Official Exclusive tag and a certificate of authenticity. This is it people! When these are gone – they are gone forever! So make sure to get yours while supplies last.

I have only a handful of my original paintings left from SDCC – but they will all be live and available for purchase on my Etsy Friday, August 9th at 9AM.

Some paint-embellished sketches will also go live on the 9th. These are from SDCC and all that I have left! My next sketches won’t come until my Halloween release – so if you want your very own drawing, this is a great opportunity as they are extra special with the paint embellishments!

My large and small Mystery Bundles from SDCC have made their way over to my Etsy. These are a great opportunity to snatch up some signed, fine art, limited edition, or discontinued art or items! Every single package is different.

The Large bundles include: two 11×14 prints (there are signed, fine art, out of print and limited edition prints at random – you could get something extra special), one postcard and one sticker.

And the Small bundles include: two postcards (one of my original concept art, the other: a pop culture image in my art style), two stickers (some designs have been discontinued or were limited edition) and one enamel pin (many of these pins have been discontinued are limited edition or special edition). Lots or opportunities to get something rare and special!

My Camilla girls and Fuzzbutts lanyards will be available in limited quantities as well.

My SailorBuzz pins will also be available! Isn’t sure friggen AROABLE?!

And just in time for school: my Star Bees and Rainbow Bees backpacks will be available!

Last but not least I have some cool giveaways! For all orders between the 9th and 12th, I’ll be giving away one of these sweet pencils. But only while supplies last. And then one lucky order will be getting this sketch and a super awesome bonus!

So set your clocks! Friday, August 9th at 9AM PST/12PM EST! Head to my Etsy store early or you’ll miss out!

San Diego Comic Con Part 1

I’m so excited to be returning to San Diego Comic Con! My booth is #4723 in the Fantasy Illustrator section, and I’m bringing lots of original artwork with me this year.

I’ve created a new original painting collection I call “Surreal Safari”, these petite oil paintings range in size from 3.5″ to 4×6″ and 5×7″. They’re an awesome way for new collectors to add an original painting to their collections, since petite paintings range in prices from $450-750+usd

I call this little cutie “Pinkie Pie”, inspired by the awesome Axolotl- they’re a amazing part of the natural world! “Pinkie Pie” is coming to San Diego Comic Con at my booth 4723 where I’ll also have prints, but if you can’t make it to the show, you can pick up a print here.

Another amazing creature I discovered this year is the Seabunny- seriously, if you’ve never heard of one, google search ‘Seabunny’ and you won’t regret it! I knew when I saw photos that I had to paint a rainbow one, so here is “Seabuns” for my Surreal Safari collection! Seanbuns will debut at booth 4723 alongside these other cute critters.

I’ve also been working on my Dorian Gray portrait to get him ready in time to join the Surreal Safari at SDCC booth 4723! He’s inspired by my favorite Oscar Wilde story, and if you’ve never read it, I highly recommend checking it out!

I’m also bringing original drawings to my booth 4723 at SDCC! I have a collection of framed 5×7″ graphite drawings I made during my travels in Europe, and I’ve been holding them for a special release. If you’re coming to the show, definitely visit early because each one is one of a kind, and once it finds a home, it’s gone baby gone!

I’m also making original artwork a part of my fan appreciation at SDCC booth 4723 for fans supporting my artwork at the show! I’m going to raffle original sketches on shikishi boards during the con, so come visit me at booth 4723 for a raffle ticket with your lovely new art goodies! I have lots more announcements for SDCC this year so stay tuned everyone!
