camilladerrico's Profile Picture
Camilla dErrico
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
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.

I just wanted to say to you:
you are wonderful and amazing.
I am sure you've heard this, but your art, words, and writings encourage people.
lets build bridges, not walls, lets spread the love, not the hate.
if we keep spreading a message of love, good things will come.
keep your head up, and have an amazing rest of the day!
I hope this message doesnt bother you, I intended it as to make a smile come on your face,
 or make you feel better, if you are having a bad day. Because you deserve that. <3

I found your Pop Manga book at my local library & really enjoyed it, especially Tanpopo & the Helmet Girls.

That's nice of you!

I'll have to track down a copy of Tanpopo it sounds very interesting.

I hope you love it, it's truly a passion project for me. It reads differently than other graphic novels though, but if you like classic literature, you'll love it!
