Camilla d’Errico is an artist from British Columbia whose work I’ve been following for a while now. She is a painter and comic book illustrator, and her work can be seen in comics such as Tanpopo, Sky Pirates of New Terra and Burn. Her paintings can been seen at one of her gallery shows, including her solo show, “Il Codice d’Errico”, which opens tomorrow at the Mondo Bizarro Gallery in Rome, Italy.
I first saw Camilla’s work at the Emerald City Comicon and was drawn in by the beauty of her paintings of wide-eyed young girls. The images evoke an innocence that often belies the actual content of the illustrations, giving them a complexity that might be missed on first glance. I got a chance to meet Camilla briefly and she was very friendly and down-to-earth. I was a little star struck but she put me at ease right away, and I’m now the proud owner of an autographed print of “Iguana.”
