About Camilla


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 explains her work by saying, “I find joy in angst – in shape and in form, in color and in texture – and in the embodiment of passion. I love capturing the tension, the drama, and the unrest in people’s faces and showing them a reflection of their own deep seated emotions. It is about expressing what they feel and feeling what they express.”

"Over the past year I have taken interest in manga, not so much reading manga books, but drawing manga characters. These characters, are very unique and like nothing I have seen before. I LOVE them!"

"Aww, very cute and anime-ish ^^"

"I would be greatly disappointed of Camilla stopped doing these innocent yet haunting characters in her art.. they draw you in and each girl is distinctly different in a way that anyone can find one to identify with. I also think the 'big eyes' coupled with unusual imagery attracts a newer, younger generation of art appreciators, as well as those of us who love anime/manga."

"yes, it's big eyed girls again, but there is more to the symbolisim than that, she doesn't read like the typical 'cutie pie' when you take a moment and digest the symbolsIe: raven on the shoulderboy passing honeycomb through a kisstry looking with an unbiased eyeNot saying it's art for the ages but I do see something beyond the doe eyed girl.they are allegories - try reading them again."

"I checked out her website.I can't really say I'm too impressed. I used to draw stuff like this all over my notebooks in school, because that was all I could draw.It bores me to see artists who clearly never challenge themselves or leave their comfort zone. All of her "characters" are identical except for a different hair color or slightly different pose.This is a problem with a lot of popular artists today, they never ever surprise you. Take Audrey Kawasaki for example. Beautiful, ethereal work - but it never changes. You always know exactly what to expect with her, she never pushes herself further or tries something different. Its totally redundant, which is a shame too because in both cases there's talent.They just choose not to grow as artists."

"Her work is nice but i'm not agree with some things that i read in her description, however i see that she has good drawing and she is good in her manga style."

"The blonde girl and yellow snake make a wonderful match. Finally a snake portrayed as a peaceful symbol opposed to the evil ambient that most artists pair it with. I've recently grown to change my opinion about snakes as being evil. We're used to think very stereotypical. Bravo!"

"i love the contrasting points put forth by all the "characters" as it were , that are shown here - in conjunction with the big blue eyes it makes for an interesting artwork"

"more big eyed girls...."

"is anyone else absolutely tired of this style of painting? the big eyes, fairy-like characters and mood, same colors, etc. it's monotonous."
