Artist Camilla d’Errico is a the forefront of the Pop Surrealist movement, which is heavily inspired by “lowbrow” art like comics and tattoos. She’s been nominated for the Joe Shuster and Will Eisner awards and she’s worked with Dark Horse Comics, Hasbro, Disney, and Sanrio in addition to creating her own Tanpopo and Helmetgirls series.
After many fans requested a book that was both “instructional and inspirational”, d’Errico is releasing Pop Painting: Inspiration and Techniques from the Pop Surrealism Art Phenomenon this January. It will offer readers “an inside view on the tools, techniques, and inspirations she draws from to create stunningly beautiful, otherworldly works of art.”
