Camilla’s No Ordinary Love Statue, a collaborative effort with Gentle Giant Studios and produced by Dark Horse Comics has been nominated for the Designer Toy Awards Outstanding Production piece of 2012!
The Designer Toy Awards, run through Clutter Magazine, recognize the best and brightest artists and contributions to the designer toy and art toy world. Held during the weekend of New York Comic Con in NYC, the DTA are a fabulously well attended and lively event bringing together artists and industry professinals from all over the world. It is an honour for Camilla’s first art statue adaptation from one of her paintings, No Ordinary Love, to be recognized at this level.
Last years’ winner for the designer toy awards Outstanding Production category was Tara McPherson’s art statue Lilitu. A marvellously crafted sculptural art piece in an edition of 200 pieces.

Tasha has kept painting toys, and has since participated in exhibitions and artist series regularly. Here’s a quick look at how far Tasha has come along from 2011 to now. Keep it up Tasha!

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.”
