I finished this custom painted Kathie Olivas vinyl for Emerald City Comic Con! It was a good friend of mine's birthday so I gave her the honor of naming this cutie. ❤

I'll be at booth 1532 if you are interested in her or want to stop by and take a look!
This painting was part of my “Dances with Dreams” show at the Corey Helford Gallery last year. 🖼 I've kept her meaning secret until now 😉 I see this image as a fountain of possibilities. ⛲✨ Each thought as color and nourishment for our creativity which is eager to take flight. The delicate nature of the butterflies shows how ideas are alive yet fragile but so free 🌈 I’m curious what this image means to you! 😁 Art is so subjective, so I’d love to hear your take on it! ❤
I’m swimming with the fishes… or rather painting them lol 🐠🐟🐡🖌I decided to work on this girly a little more. 😊 I had to switch gears from painting all those goldfish for a bit. She's for my Dorothy Circus Gallery show March 30th!
I’ve got more Calypsu from Sky Pirates for Black History Month! 😀 She’s
such a fiery cutie I couldn’t help but share more of her! 😍 She is surrounded by all her Neo-Terran
creatures in this image. 🐊 It might look familiar if you have my Pop Manga Coloring Book. 😉📚 I included this image in the book so if any of
you colored her, I’d love to see!
Big Painting WIP
It’s a gathering of goldfish for this weeks #wipwednesday! These are Orandu goldfish. They’re
super cute and super pudgey! Right now I am adding in some details for their tiny scales. This
requires a lot of little dabs and layering of colors to create depth and fullness to their chubby
bodies! For their fins I’m layering long strokes one after another to trying to mimic the natural
color patterns. References help in these situations! She will part of my “Submerged” show at the
Dororthy Circus Gallery in Rome next month. You can contact them at if you’re interested in her!

I am a product of my split heritage, Italian and Canadian rolled into one: Italian fiestiness, Canadian politeness, and an early addiction to Saturday morning cartoons, comics and manga. Growing up I was more often doodling sexy girls and dragons on my textbooks than reading them. In 1998 I attended my first San Diego Comic Con and found my calling, I would be a manga artist. I am very prolific with relentless passion for art, dedication, and just enough sleep deprivation, I followed my dream of working creatively for a living.

I have worked with Dark Horse Comics, Image Comics, Random House, Tokyopop, Hasbro, Disney, Sanrio, Neil Gaiman and also with video game and movie companies on character development. I have my own characters and properties, Tanpopo and Helmetgirls. I've successfully merchandised and licensed my artwork across a variety of categories: clothing, stationery and gift, accessories, art prints, etc. and I continue expanding my licensing program each year.

I can't live without Holbein's "DUO" water-soluble oils, green tea lattes, Hello Kitty merchandise, and my daily fix of manga and anime and pop surrealism

Camilla is proud to be supported by, and to work with, Vancouver based Pac Blue Printing and their team of professionals for all her printing needs.

Hi Guys,

I'm excited to be coming back to Edmonton Expo next weekend! I'll have a guest artist table Sept 25-27, and bring prints, books like my Tanpopo graphic novel and my How To Draw Pop Manga book, tshirts, and more goodies. If you're in the Edmonton Alberta area, come say Hi. ^_^

Camilla, I am so thrilled to know you have a DA account. I only just learned of your work yesterday by finding your book, "Pop Painting". I am SO in love with your work. Your artwork and book have inspired me in so many ways. After becoming a "digital artist", I reluctantly admit I gave up on traditional art. Believing it was simply, out of my genre and skills. But now I feel inspired to want to try it again, to actually translate my work into a traditional counterpart. 

Thank you for publishing your book and for continuing with your art!
