Lucy Bellwood is a professional Adventure Cartoonist based in Portland, Oregon. Her comics projects have covered a range of expeditions, including rafting trips through the Grand Canyon, cutting-edge oceanography in the Pacific, and an expedition aboard the last wooden whaling ship in the world.

She is the author and illustrator of Baggywrinkles: a Lubber’s Guide to Life at Sea, an educational, autobiographical account of the worlds of modern and historical tall ship sailing, drawn from her time working aboard 18th-century replica tall ships. Her second graphic novel, 100 Demon Dialogues, explores the relationship between creators and their imposter syndrome through a series of relatable conversations with her inner critic.

Find local creators to connect with. Make friends with retailers. Join groups online. Create a monthly accountability check-in with other folks at a similar professional level. Hold each other to a high standard. Share resources. Remember that self-publishing is about being alone, together—possibly even more “together” than working with a publisher.

2. Get comfortable with communicating your enthusiasm and passion on the web. Practice sharing your process—not just your product. Welcome your audience into the parts of your work that are vulnerable or difficult. Trust them.

3. Be willing to go off the beaten path. Try things. Be scrappy. Nobody’s going to do it for you, and there’s no one right way to do it, so you get to make the rules. This can feel frenetic, because you’ll be running in fifteen directions at once with no map to guide you, but all those avenues can pay off in unexpected ways.

A compelling, suspenseful, enjoyable read. Reminded me of Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore for its deft mix of technology and magic. This feels like present-day fantasy at its best, drawing on the specters that haunt our experience of the world while ...more

I fell in love with the beautiful, clothbound Narnia books in our house when I was very young. My mother used to read them to me before bed. (I’m even named, in part, after Lucy Pevensie.) Like Miller, I didn’t encounter the books’ Christian themes u ...more
