What: Camilla has worked on multiple covers for Iron Cross Publishing including Loser Takes All, and the upcoming Art and War. Camilla d’Errico is an Italo-Canadian artist who has been making waves in the fine art and comic industries with her manga-influenced style. Ever the prolific artist, Camilla is comic artist/creator and Pop Surrealist painter, while also contributing to the vinyl art toy movement, and expanding her style into fashion, accessories, toys and other merchandise.
Camilla resides in Vancouver, BC, where she paints and draws comics, and more recently has been working with entertainment companies on feature films and videogames. She has distinguished herself through her ability to seamlessly weave comic art and manga with surrealist elements, wrapping it all together with an extensive emotional palette. Thanks to her relentless energy, dedication, and creativity, she has followed her dream of successfully working creatively for a living.
Camilla d’Errico eschewed a 9-to-5 job for a career in comics upon attending her first San Diego Comic Con in 1998. She has been drawing comic books since 2001, while attaining her Illustration and Design diploma at Capilano College in North Vancouver.
Her first professional comic book project was with Seattle and New York based Committed Comics, for the series Threads. She then took on the role of lead penciler for the four-part mini series Zevon-7. When Zevon-7 creator Quenton Shaw launched QEW Publishing in 2004, Camilla’s creator-owned manga series, Burn, was added to the studio’s project base and was subsequently published by Arcana Studios in May 2008.
In 2006 she was asked to work on the graphic novel for singer Avril Lavigne. Together with Joshua Dysart, d’Errico co-created the two-part graphic novel, entitled Make 5 Wishes, which was published in 2007 by Del Rey Manga and Random House in North America and by Tokyopop in Asia. In 2007, d’Errico became the artist for Serena Valentino’s series, Nightmares & Fairy Tales, published by Slave Labor Graphics, from issue 19 to issue 23.
Image Comics published a five issue mini series and graphic novel drawn by d’Errico. The mini series is a spin-off story of the video game Sky Pirates of Neo Terra, which is based on d’Errico’s artwork. She is also slated to work with writer, Grant Morrison on his creator-owned project The New Bible (previously named Warcop).
In addition to working for client projects, d’Errico is self-publishing her own series Tanpopo, based on Goethe’s Faust. The story revolves around Tanpopo, a superhumanly intelligent and inhumanly emotionless girl who inadvertently makes a deal with the devil in exchange for a chance at feeling emotions, especially love and happiness. The second volume is inspired by the Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the third is inspired by Strange Stories From a Chinese Studio.
