I love public speaking, teaching, and appearing on panels and podcasts. Here are some resources you can check out online from past gigs I’ve done:
- In 2016 I spoke at XOXO (a festival dedicated to independent creators making things on the internet) about money, success, and fear. You can watch the video below:
- While teaching at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark, I’ve delivered a number of lectures about professionalism, social media, community building, running successful Kickstarters, and more. Here are two selections:
- In 2017 I appeared at Creative Mornings Portland to discuss childhood passions, the importance of curiosity, and embracing unusual job titles.
- I keep a pretty exhaustive collection of panels I’ve appeared on, interviews with other creators, and workshops I’ve taught on SoundCloud. There’s a ton of information here for creators looking to break into comics or other creative fields.
- I’m a recurring guest on The Galaxy of Super Adventure, an all-ages podcast about making comics that also happens to be a space-faring radio comedy with Ben Hatke, Jerzy Drozd, and Zack Giallongo.
And here, in no particular order, are some of my favorite interviews from the last few years:
- Comics, Mental Wellness, and Travel on the Light Grey Art Lab Podcast
- Surviving Indie Comics on Creator at Large
- Defining Creative Success on The Unmistakable Creative
- The Pros and Cons of Independence on The Creative Independent
- Lucy Bellwood Knows Your Demons Better Than You Do on Anxy Magazine
- Make It Then Tell Everybody with Dan Berry
- The New Disruptors with Glenn Fleishmann
- A Chat with Chris Schweizer
- Comics Manifest: You are Enough
Some testimonials from organizers I’ve worked with:
“The work/life balance conversation Lucy hosted was nothing less than high-level professional group therapy for artists. She approached the subject in such a beautiful, casual, non-threatening manner. Lucy makes people comfortable and her genuine sense of curiosity always leads to interesting conversations.”
