Congrats to Camilla on winning the competition! She deserves it, as she’s been a whirlwind of activity currently. She’s so much going on… here’s a lil’ recap on things:
Apart from the journal and stationery set she just released via Dark Horse
, Camilla also just did a great little webcomic for them – check it out here
Speaking of Dark Horse, she just did the cover for the MySpace Dark Horse Presents Vol. 3 collected edition as well. Check out the cover for Vol. 2 here.
Camilla is really starting to find a ‘home’ at Dark Horse, which is awesome. There’s more to come from this collaboration, so keep your eyes peeled.
Some may have heard, but she’s also working with Grant Morrison. He’s finally given everyone the news they’ve been waiting for – the title of the book Camilla will be drawing! Called, The New Bible, Camilla’s sexy take on religion should be interesting to say the very least. More on this awesome collaboration soon.

to view details about her new videogame!!! It’s coming out this August on Nintendo DS, and then Wii. She’s working on a 5 issue mini series for the game, that will come out as a comic book. More info on how that short series will be released and when soon.
If you haven’t had your fill of Camilla goodness after all that, then be sure to mark your calendars now for what will be Camilla’s last showing in the Los Angeles area for a good bit…

‘The Garden of Eye Candy’ recently came out and is a must own. While the ads that are running in various magazines don’t do much justice informing one what awaits inside, I just picked up this great collection and it really offers up a great mix of up and coming artists.
‘The Garden of Eye Candy’ features an international roster of artists in a luxurious and exquisite box set. Featuring contributions from several Thinkspace regulars including the likes of Amy Sol, Camilla d’Errico, Lesley Reppeteaux, and KuKula along with Luke Chueh, Nicoletta Ceccoli, Jaime Zollars, Lisa Petrucci, Mijn Schatje, Noferin, Brandt Peter, Koralie, Tim McCormick, Kendra Binney, Danielle Lamberti, Mark Bodnar, Josh Taylor, Danile Lim, Juri Ueda, and many more. Each artist section features a short overview and anywhere from 6 to 8 pages of images.
