Lucy Bellwood - The Beatles Must’ve Been Singing About Her
I don’t remember who said “Hi” first but I’m glad someone did.
Lucy’s the kind of girl you meet, instantly fall in love with, and wish you knew growing up. Right off the bat, her bright smile, cheery spirit, and all-around-goofiness were the telltale signs of an amazing person.
Lucy traded me a couple issues of her Baggy Wrinkles series in turn for my comic, The Destructive Artist. I read them on the way home and realized why Lucy seemed to be so enthralled by sailboats: she spent her spring break living and work on one during her last year of high school.
I didn’t recognize Lucy’s material at the convention, and when I re-browsed her website I realized why: it had been overshadowed by her beautiful watercolours and figure portraits. That’s not to say the comics don’t hold their own, quite the opposite: Lucy’s one of those versatile artists who seems adept at anything she puts her mind to.
The issues of Baggy Wrinkles are hand-sown, meaning Lucy adds a personal touch to each copy. This can be overshadowed by her creative use of story-telling and book binding. I won’t ruin the surprise, but instead ask you to check out http://nauticry.wordpress.com/artists-books/ to see what I’m talking about with your own eyes.
Honestly, the creativity and ingenuity this girl brings to her projects (check out the illustrations page while you’re there) is astounding.
Beyond that, the subject matter and stories of anything she produces reflect the genuineness that I’m sure this girl has no problem conveying. The words and pictures Lucy shares provide you an inside look at her life, without any apparent veils or facades. It’s like meeting the real person (which I happened to do!)
Seriously, it’s all amazing, and she’s such a beautiful gal, inside and out. I urge you to take a look at her site and find out for yourself.
