Ahoy

Hi there! I’m Lucy Bellwood, a very enthusiastic cartoonist who goes on adventures.

You may know me as the creator of Baggywrinkles: a Lubber’s Guide to Life at Sea, or as a member of Helioscope (formerly Periscope Studio), or as a fixture on many podcasts and panels.

I just completed my second year of The 100 Day Project! The resulting series, 100 Demon Dialogues, is available on Kickstarter until July 31st. It explores self-doubt, creativity, anxiety, compassion, and being a human being in a noisy world. You can see more of the comics themselves right here.

When I’m not funding new comics, I travel around the world bringing back stories for my readers to enjoy. In early 2017 I spent three weeks in the Pacific embedded on Schmidt Ocean Institute‘s research vessel Falkor. You can read the comic distillation of our multibeam mapping expedition here.

In the past I’ve documented rafting through the Grand Canyon (twice!), going to sea on the last wooden whaling ship in the world, exploring the feminist undertones of social dance, and trying out a sensory deprivation tank for the first time.

I also love making opulent printed objects.

In 2017 I’ll be visiting Iceland with Light Grey Art Lab’s 2017 Residency, as well as tabling at a variety of conventions and festivals.
