Camilla d'Errico Nominated for The Joe Shuster Awards As Outstanding Comic Book Artist
Camilla d'Errico, one of Canada's most prolific and unique female comic art talents, has been nominated for the 2010 Joe Shuster Awards in the category for Outstanding Comic Book Artist.
The Joe Shuster Awards are Canada’s first national award recognizing outstanding achievement in the creation of comic books. They are named after pioneering Toronto-born artist Joe Shuster who, along with writer Jerry Siegel, created the iconic super-powered hero, Superman.
"I am honored and humbled to be nominated in this category, and in the company of some of the entire comic book industry's best artists", says an elated d'Errico, "This nomination means so much to me because I've worked hard to establish myself in this field and to follow my dream despite opposition and doubts at times. I am proud to be a Canadian comic book artist."
A prestigious award, and equally prestigious nomination, The Joe Shuster Awards give recognition to — and raise awareness of — the efforts made by Canadians who make, publish and sell comic books, webcomics and graphic novels. In the category of Outstanding Comic Book Artist, Camilla d'Errico is in the running with other artists: Stuart Immonen, Jacques Lamontage, Francis Manapul, Julie Rocheleau, Fiona Staples and Cameron Stewart.
