Tiny Trifecta Art Show at Tara McPherson’s Cotton Candy Machine

This Saturday, April 9th, the wonderful Tara McPherson is opening up her first store in Brooklyn, New York in the Williamsburg district, and there will be a Camilla d’Errico piece titled “Beware the Kuro Trinity” in the debut show!

The event is called “Tiny Trifecta” and all of the 100+ pieces of art will be on-sale for only $100 – practically stealing when you see some of the work. Contributors include comics creators like Becky Cloonan, Mike Mignola, Jon Schnepp, and David Mack, as well as fine-arts like Ciou, Gary Baseman, Jeff Soto, Kathy Olivas, Alex Pardee, and so many more.

If you can’t make it to the opening reception, you should really check out the store sometime in the future, located at 235 South 1 Street. But if you’re not in the New York area, you’re still in luck, because we’re teasing Camilla’s piece before the show. As an added bonus, Molly CrabappleBrian Ewing, and Jill Thompson are also giving us their contributions to show fans!

  1. Not to get sidetracked from Camilla’s groovy Kuro piece (and that frame which is to die for!), but who knew Jill Thompson did such amazing watercolors… those sheets, that coffee cup, wow!! I have to say, my love for Jill Thompson was cemented way way way back when she did the early issues of the Black Orchid ongoing series for Vertigo. I have an original page from that run… and her pencil (or pen) runs a wonderfully fine line between high comic book action and feminine grace. The character and Jill’s artwork were really something special. I love that character and wish DC or Vertigo would revive her from limbo. Meanwhile, Jill went on to do some other work that I was always curious about but never got ’round to picking up like the Death manga-style books. Maybe now that I’m thinking about them, I will track them down. I remember there was also a wicked figurine of her manga-style Death, too. So back to her watercolors… it’s so cool to see something so mundane and yet very special from Jill in a whole different style. Thanks for sharing the images, Camilla.

    By the way, speaking of figurines… whatever become of the Mountainhead figurine that was in the works? Is it still coming out, or did it fall victim to some unfortunate circumstances? I’m still hoping for some helmet girl figurines one day! Fingers crossed.

    Take care!

    1. Hi TJ, we’re working on a figure … it’s such a long (and expensive) process. Helmetgirls are in full swing, and I never give up on a dream so just hold tight because we’ll release a figure sooner or later (hopefully sooner!). Thanks for checking in — and yeah, go Jill!! >.^
