So I’ve been stalking following the works of Camilla d’Errico since I first spotted a set of oil paintings at an exhibit at Gallery 1988 in San Francisco (now closed) way back in 2007.  Some of her earlier work is manga/mecha-oriented (BURN and helmet girls), but she has branched to new breadths of colorful creature inspirations and comics.  On that night in 2007, I just so happened to walk by after getting a bite to eat off of Polk street.  There were lots of pieces on display that night but hers left an indelible mark in my mind.  Her work is manga-inspired, vividly colored, whimsical yet haunting.  I snapped a picture with my phone making sure to also capture the name of the brilliant artist and went on my way.

It was Comic-Con 2008, I walk by and saw some artwork that caught my eye and indeed it was very familiar.  Camilla d’Errico was there selling prints!  She’s such a pleasure to meet in person.  I bought a couple prints and we chatted about her exhibit at G88, helmet girls, and her indie book “BURN”.  Each year goes by and I spot more of her work at Comic-con: prints, comics, shirts, toys, and more!  Her work in the Image comic “Sky Pirates Of Neo Terra” really showcases her breadth of talent.  In the comics biz, he’s worked with Image, SLG, and now BOOM! Studios.  I would often check out her page, http://www.camilladerrico.com/, for updates. I still would love to own one of her original works on canvas but alas, as her cult popularity as risen, her brushed pieces have gone out of my budget! So, I collect her comics whenever I can. I also stop by her booth(s) at Comic-Con to buy prints and say ‘hi’ to this rising star.

Recently announced, Camilla d’Errico’s original three issues of “Tanpopo” plus an all-new never-before-seen issue will be bound in hard cover by BOOM! Studios. Look for it on shelves in March!
