Camilla d’Errico (W/A)
On sale Feb 23
FC, 112 pages
HC, 8 1/2″ x 11″
One of the brightest rising stars of pop surrealism returns to Dark Horse!
Camilla d’Errico is an artistic dynamo—a highly accomplished painter and comic-book artist as well as a clothing, product, and custom-toy designer. Her handiwork captivates admirers around the world, and some of her best-known creations are these, her studies of beautiful women and their animal companions. Playful and flamboyant, exotic and enigmatic, the women who inhabit these striking paintings embody a fascinating array of contradictions. They dwell in a fantastic world—a circus of color and impossibility—where nothing is quite as it seems.
Perfect for fans of pop art, fine art, manga, and anime, this deluxe hardcover is the largest collection of Camilla’s work to date!
• The largest and most comprehensive book of Camilla’s art ever published!
• Camilla’s art has appeared in Hi-Fructose, Kid Robot, Juxtapoz, and in galleries around the world!
“Through her fiery nature, creative ability, and profound passion for her craft, Camilla d’Errico has become one of the best of her generation and a true inspiration.” —Format Magazine
