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!

SDCC may be in full swing now but I have news for you! I’ve put a very few new releases up on Etsy here for collectors who can’t make it to my SDCC booth4723 in person.

San Diego Comic Con 2019!!

I am so unbelievably excited you guys! Words cannot describe… SAN DIEGO COMIC CON BABY! It’s just over a week away – July 17th-21st – and it’s the 50th Anniversary of the show! Can you believe it?! Because I can’t! And I’ve been going almost half the life of the show – 22 years! And because the show has been so good to me – and you the fans have always been SO amazing – I have some great gifties in store for the show!

You can find me at the same booth as always: BOOTH #4723!! I made some handy maps for ya since the con centre so vast.

I’ve got brand-new clothing designs, OAK jewelry, original paintings, new pins, OAK totes, pop culture bees, my Pop Manga Drawing, The Zodiac art book, zodiac art prints, zodiac bees, some really awesome SDCC 2019 Exclusives, and so much more!! Absolutely everything will be available at my booth #4723.

Exclusives first!! I’m so excited for all of these – you have no idea. First up: my Stan Lee commemorative SDCC® Officially Licensed – SDCC 2019 Limited Edition 16×20 foil stamp print! I call him “Stan Bee”.

He is coloured by the talented Lime Town Studios and there will only be 50 of him available. So come early!

Lets keep the cute bee theme going and talk about my SDCC® officially licensed – SDCC 2019 Exclusive Limited Edition Pins! Say hello to “George Blueney” – he’s adorable, sparkly, and limited to 100 pieces.

You all should know my love of Sailor Moon by now. And if you don’t – well you will soon. I decided this year for SDCC I would bring my love of bees and my all time favourite OTP (one-true-pairing) Princess Serenity and Prince Endymion together! So here they are: my SDCC® officially licensed – SDCC 2019 Exclusive Limited Edition “Prince and Moon” pin set. This couple is limited to 100 set pieces. So make sure not to miss out!

Next up are my SDCC® officially licensed – SDCC 2019 Exclusive Limited Edition Kimonos! And you guessed it – I’ve got more Sailor Moon for you! “Moonflower” will be an SDCC Exclusive Limited Edition Kimono of 70 pieces! She’s a shorter kimono than the one I released previously on my Etsy shop, but she’s sporty and fun! She’s made of feather fabric that’s very breathable so you’ll be able to beat the California heat!

My last exclusive is my Leo kimono. My zodiac painting “Leo” will be an SDCC Exclusive Limited Edition kimono of 100 pieces! She’s made of gorgeous chiffon and is so breezy and elegant! All my kimonos are made by EcoDigiTec in BC, Canada.

If you like my zodiac – get ready! You’ll be able to get my Zodiac Bees – the Buzziacs – for the first time ever at a convention at SDCC 2019!

They will be available as both mini prints (in very limited quantities) and sticker sheet sets: you get all the signs as cute little weather-proof vinyl stickers.

Next on the zodiac: my newest art book The Zodiac will be available, along with prints of ALL my zodiac ladies!

You can get the book which collects all 12 of my girls from my Zodiac show at the Haven Gallery as well as 12 pieces from Travis Louie’s “Animals That I’ve Known” show. And I’d love to sign any of my prints or books for you lovelies – at no charge!

And last – but not least on the zodiac train – my Aquarius purse!

She is limited to 25 pieces. Made of neoprene – scuba material – so she’s weather resistant. And she’s cruelty free! Vegan leather. No animals hurt here baby! These purses are super spacious and machine washable. So they are an everyday kind of purse.

Are you all still with me? I hope so! Because I’ve still got more for you!

My Aria busts from APPortfolio are making an appearance. But there will only be three of them at the show – so make sure to come early so you don’t miss out.

I’ll have a handful of one-of a kind handmade jewelry: necklaces, brooches and keychains.

As well as original paintings, one-of-a-kind drawings, giveaways, mystery bundles and oodles more!
