HelmetGirls The Art of Camilla d'Errico


Camilla's artwork is full of life! She draws in a classic anime style with the characters having large round eyes, tiny pert noses, and small pouty lips. Some of the drawings have a darker feel to them, but still hold an innocence about them.

I really enjoyed the chapter, "Hints of Color" as the small pops of color really gave her drawings another dimension. Also the chapter featuring her paintings is my favorite part in the book. The colors are mellow and cool, but pop and excite at the same time. They have a great life to them that I thoroughly enjoyed. 

The original to digital is another really fun chapter in the book. It was really nice to see the growth in her photos when they were changed to color images. The change really made her images take on a whole new life. She also has photos of some of the items that have been made like a pair of shoes and an uber cute wooden doll.

 Camilla d'Errico was born in Ontario, Canada, there she started drawing comics while she earned her degree in illustration. She has had her works shown all over North America and Europe. Camilla also has designed for big companies, such as: Walt Disney, Hasbro, Microsoft, Wizkids, and Ride Snowboards.

Helmetgirls is a creative exploration and Camilla breates life into her by giving her unique traits and qualities. So if you like anime styled art then this would be a great book to keep in your coffee table arsenal.
