Walking up and down the con-floor of C2E2, there is a lot of fan art and artwork to take in. Amid the isles of Superman posters, typical images of big busty comic characters, and dark and brooding images of Batman is a colorful and sweet-smelling booth that stands out from the crowd. It’s the booth of artist and author Camilla d’Errico.

“I think it’s really cool. I’ve always just thought of myself as just an artist and not a female artist, but the more I think about it, the luckier I feel – because 100 years ago, women weren’t allowed to do art. I realize now I’m so lucky. I feel like if I can inspire other women to say yeah, I want to do art too, they can make a serious career out of it,” d’Errico tells BUST.

If you look at comic art and fan art from the ’90s and earlier, much of it was geared towards men. How many of us didn’t love Rogue, but felt some sort of dysmorphic body shame? Those images are changing. “Women are now part of [comic and fan art], and I think it’s great because there is so much more for girls. It’s not a boys club anymore,” d’Errico says.
