World-Renowned Artist, Creator, and Pop Surrealist Painter, Camilla d’Errico, Returns to her Roots at San Diego Comic-Con, Showcasing her new Pop Manga Drawing Book, Zodiac-Inspired Art, Holographic Prints, and More
WHAT: Pop surrealist painter, comic artist, and author, Camilla d’Errico, will return to San Diego Comic Convention (Comic-Con International) for her 21st time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the event.

Prints representing interpretations of the 12 signs of the Zodiac as depicted by Camilla in her new original paintings will be showcased for the first time at the San Diego Comic-Con. Camilla’s diverse depictions of character body types and distinct individual backgrounds signify positivity and inclusion; Camilla believes expressions of acceptance and open-minded thinking are exactly what our evolving world needs when considering current/recent events. It is easy for people to identify with any of the body types or color themes expressed in the Zodiac paintings, regardless of their actual Zodiac sign. The Zodiac prints will be available at booth #4723
Mini Bees Camilla’s zodiac bees, the Buzziacs, bring together her love of the zodiac and her love of all the adorable fuzzbutt bees of the world. Her Buzziacs are now available on a new set of stickers, and may also be found as designs on totes, clothing and as mini prints. Camilla “loves her little ‘fuzzbutts’ and feels they represent “the kid inside me who still hasn’t grown up.” Her Buzziac sticker sets will be available and the mini prints will be available in limited quantities at booth #4723.
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of San Diego Comic-Con, Camilla has signed and numbered 50 holographic, limited edition prints of “Stan Bee” – a tribute to the late and great Stan Lee.

The holographic foil stamp Stan Bee is a SDCCⓇ exclusive and will be available at booth #4723.
In the style of Japanese manga, Camilla has two designs for the kimono: the first is based on her recently released Leo painting from her Zodiac collection, and the second, “Moonflower”, is based on her well- known and brilliant rendition of popular Japanese manga: Sailormoon. The kimonos are manufactured by hand in North America by EcoDigiTec (ecodigitec.com) and will be available at booth #4723.
Aquarius Zodiac Purses
To complement the zodiac prints, Camilla will also be releasing her first purse featuring one of her zodiac paintings. These 25, limited edition purses will feature Camilla’s zodiac painting: Aquarius. The purses are made with neoprene – a scuba-like material – so they are weatherproof and machine washable. And just like Camilla’s animal-loving nature, they are completely cruelty free with their vegan leather. The Aquarius zodiac, nicknamed “The Water Bearer,” will appeal to anybody that can identify with the Aquarius zodiac or the Aquarius painting and esthetic. Water Bearers are described as people who accomplish their goals in unique ways using paths less travelled by others. Despite their unconventional methods, the opinions and standards expressed by society do not scare them and they proudly display their original ideas for all to see.

She also works with entertainment companies on feature films and video games. Camilla is inspired by other art and music, words, and patterns that catch her interest.
