Convention Seasons Kicks-Off with WonderCon

2012 is going to be a great year for fan conventions! While Camilla and the rest of the crew would like to make it out to every show, we can only go to so many each year. Camilla is busy creating so many wonderful new paintings, and of course still working on Tanpopo, Helmetgirls, and Sky Pirates of Neo Terra. We hope to see you as many as possible at our booth!

The first show of the year is WonderCon from March 16th – 18th in sunny Anaheim, California. A very special prototype of the recently announced “No Ordinary Love” statue from Dark Horse Comics (seen above) will be on display at the d’Errico Studios booth. We’ll be taking pre-orders for the statue at the show, which are limited to 950 editions worldwide. Come by and see how beautiful the bust looks in person before it’s available in stores.

Camilla is also taking a select number of orders for sketches from now until March 9th for WonderCon. Sketches of a single character start at $100, and be customized for more characters upon request. Only five sketches will be available for fans to order, so if you want a one-of-a-kind original work from Camilla d’Errico that you can pick up at WonderCon, send an email to info@camilladerrico.com before time runs out! (Those wanting to get their sketch requests in early for Emerald City Comic-Con in Seattle should email as well!)

Because we love seeing fans so much in person, we’ve saved a few items from the brand-new clothing launch that are currently sold-out online. Come say hello to see what items we’ll have left – it may be the very last of that clothing anywhere!

A lot of people have been asking about other conventions over on the Facebook page, and as promised – here’s a list of conventions where d’Errico Studios will have a booth this year:

Emerald City Comicon – March 30th – April 1st.

Fan Expo Vancouver – April 21st – 22nd.

Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo – April 27th – 29th.

Anime Expo – June 29th – July 2nd.

San Diego Comic Con – July 12th – 15th.

Fan Expo Canada (in Toronto) – August 23rd – 26th.

New York Comic Con – October 11th – 14th.

More shows may be added as the year continues, so stayed tuned! And keep an eye on Camilla’s Tumblr next week for a sneak preview of a very special item.

Thanks for reading, and hope to see you at a show!

 

‘Tanpopo’ Now Free to Read on MTV Geek

Starting today, Tanpopo will be free to read online thanks to MTV Geek! The pop-culture website will run a new section of Tanpopo each week until the series is completed, and to launch the new feature, MTV Geek is hosting a contest where fans have the chance to win a giant, limited edition Buddha Kuro plush and a Blueberry Kuro vinyl that was an SDCC exclusive!

Tanpopo is a graphic tale that reinterprets the literary classic “Faust” through the story of Tanpopo, a strange girl who wishes to know love, and Kuro, a shape-shifting demon who promises to show her true emotion in exchange for her soul. Inspired by manga, epic poems, and cultures from all around the world, Tanpopo breaks the boundaries between comic book and abstract art to create an experience that is as engaging as it is powerful.

If you haven’t gotten lost in the world of Tanpopo, now’s your chance to start at the beginning. We’ve set up a special website just for Tanpopo where fans can download wallpaper images, learn more about the characters, follow the news on Tumblr, and ask the devilish Kuro a question!

It will take several months for the full series to be released for free through MTV Geek, but if you can’t wait to see how the story unfolds, we have Vol. 1, Vol. 2, and Vol. 3 available in the online store. As well, you can buy the Vol. 1-3 bundle for a lower price than purchasing all three separately, or you can order a special set of  Vol. 1 that comes with a Kuro and Specter plush.

Thanks for reading, and please share the news about being able to read Tanpopo for free on MTV Geek, and about the contest to win Tanpopo prizes, they’ll be happy you did!

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).

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!
