"Camille Rose Garcia was born in 1970 in Los Angeles, California and grew up in the generic suburbs of Orange County, visiting Disneyland and going to punk shows with the other dissenchanted youth of that era. Her paintings of creepy cartoon children living in wasteland fairy tales are critical commentaries on the failures of capitalist utopias. Creative influences include Phillip K. Dick, William Burroughs, Henry Darger,Walt Disney, as welll as politically aware bands like The Clash and Dead Kennedys. Her recent solo show, Ultraviolenceland, explored ideas of violence and empire.

Her work has appeared in Flaunt Magazine, Rolling Stone, Juxtapoz, and Paper Magazine, among others. She currently lives in Los Angeles." ~ from Camilla Rose Garcia's website.

She's without a doubt my favorite artist, and one I'm hoping will someday take over the world! I'm usually not a big fan of artist/celebrity licensed products, but if she were to branch out into the world of fashion and glamour, you bet I'd LINE UP to buy her stuff. She's already done wallpaper and dolls, so my hopes are pretty high.

I'd love to see her do an environmentally friendly high fashion line. I imagine it'd look much like Galliano's Fall of 2007 collection:

And a mineral makeup collaboration between her and M.A.C. would be splendid! The products could have names like toxic sludge, gangrene, and pharmaceutical blue. Haha.

If you could have any two artists/companies do a collaboration, who would they be, and what would they make?
