Camilla D'errico, Canadian Tiger, 2010
I am really stoked that I actually won a prize the other week! I have never won a prize before and it was really awesome!
Fresh Characters is a website that show cases the best and freshest talent in character creation. They ran a competition via twitter where you had to sign up to the website (for free), introduce yourself in a forum and re tweet the info via twitter. For these easy tasks you were entered into a random draw, where you had the chance to win one off a list of fantastic prizes, which included work by lots of very talented people. Imagine my delight when I found I had won a mystery package from Camilla D'errico
I had not really come across her work before winning this, but she produces illustrations, paintings, toys and apparel amongst other things. Check her work out on her website it's beautiful. Her work mainly centres on beautiful, mysterious and strong females. A lot of her work is sexually charged and is greatly influenced by manga, which isn't surprising, as she also illustrates comic books.
She sent me a signed t-shirt (unfortunately way too big for me, but very cool), a beautiful signed postcard book (so lots of inspiring images to look at) of her paintings and 2 key rings. So thanks so much to Fresh Characters and Camilla d'errico!
