Tanpopo Collection HC Vol. 1, by Camilla d’Errico
Celebrated creator Camilla d’Errico delivers a stunning visual journey exploring emotion, self-discovery/innocence and what it means to be human. TANPOPO is superhumanly intelligent and inhumanly emotionless. Attached to a mysterious machine and ruled by her vast knowledge, one day her heart rises up to struggle against her ruling mind. Torn and confused, she now seeks humanity, longing to feel what other humans feel. Each chapter of TANPOPO is inspired by a classic piece of literature or poetry, woven into its own epic story, and contained in this beautiful hardcover edition.
I’ve been too occupied to keep up with the events of the past week and a half, so I thought I’d get kind of caught up today!
Featured Event of March 28-April 8:
Saturday, March 31 – Sunday, April 1, 2012
I know from past messages that Aussie comics fans aren’t always sure which pros are among their numbers, and aspiring Aussie creators have to contend with the vast distance between them and the Big Two editors.
Pros at this year’s Adelaide Oz Con include none other than DC artist Nicola Scott (Birds of Prey, Secret Six, the upcoming Earth-Two) and OEL mangaka Queenie Chan (The Dreaming, In Odd We Trust)! In addition, Nicola Scott will be doing portfolio reviews on Sunday morning! Be sure to sign up early at the Information Booth.
There is also an artists’ alley, but I can’t find a listing for who’s there— tell me if you are! Or go there and discover new Aussie lady creators!

No Ordinary Love is a piece that is very dear to me…It’s the visual interpretation and expression of my feelings for my ‘one and only,’ so you can imagine how exciting it is, that this particular piece was chosen!

Some of comic’s most celebrated creators turn familiar fairy tales on their ear! This critically acclaimed, super-star anthology will thrill old and young alike. Now, for the first time in an oversized trade paperback edition!
Boom Studios has announced the release of Camille d’Errico’s Tanpopo, collecting her three previously self-published chapters, along with a new concluding chapter. Tanpopo interweaves Goethe’s Faust narrative with other classic poems such as The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Chinese folklore, in an Asian comics aesthetic to tell the story of a young girl as she learns what it is to be human.
"TANPOPO is a completely new type of book," says Matt Gagnon, Editor-in-Chief of BOOM! Studios. "It is a new graphic novel experience that combines an Camilla’s unique aesthetic in both the storytelling format and character development. We’re combining classic literature with her ephemeral art."
Tanpopo will be released in March.
I’ve forgotten these the past couple weeks /o\ But here are this week’s!
Femina and Fauna: The Art of Camilla D’Errico
D’Errico’s style is known as “pop surrealism,” and blends several influences and themes into one playful and just slightly off-kilter whole. The girls she draws are childlike and innocent, but clearly in a world that isn’t our own. Her work is haunting and a little creepy. The big doe eyes on her girls and the unusual portrayal of animal life are both attractive and curious in a way that sticks with you.
Femina and Fauna: The Art of Camilla D’Errico comes out today, and features 112 full-color pages of, as the title implies, girls and animals. Check it out when you get a chance—her style is bright and attractive, which makes this a top notch coffee table book. (via ComicsAlliance)
