And now back to the work I was supposed to be doing. ^_^;;
Saturday, October 29, 2011
So, originally I had tried to get people to draw some pin ups for my Faux Facts books but only one person really expressed interest and delivered a finished product but having just recently got it. (Completely understand the schedule issues!) It will now be fan art for my site and I’ll try to fit it in a future volume. If you want to draw finished fan art (please not just rough doodles.) from either of my series I will try to fit you guys in a future volume. Just note me.
So here OgawaBurukku has drawn Puck and his evil little familiar. Love the pun on this one. Though if you have read volume three, it might not be as accurate. ;)

I’m on another Idiot Engine Podcast with Ted Seko! This time we talked about style. Give it a listen and tell me what you think.=)
Ted’s Blurb from his blog:
This episode of the ENGINE I’m joined by self-publisher/illustrator/character designer Mary Bellamy as we discuss finding style in one’s art. It’s a solid, informative and enlightening episode, and if you don’t believe me, take a listen for yourself! (See how I’m gettin’ you to listen to the episode? But seriously, it’s a good one, and just at the hour mark too, so you’ll still have time to catch that episode of that show you always like to watch afterwards!)

So, I’ve had no success in scanning all my artist trading cards so here’s a video to try to show all the cards. I apologize that my camera isn’t the highest quality. If there’s something you like, let me know. Or if you have suggestions, tell me. =)

I set out early in morning and traffic was a breeze. I got there in plenty of time and check in to the hotel was seamless, found a parking spot easily and got down to the convention center to unload everything to the palette program. Got everything set up pretty fast. Slightly annoying that our booths aisles were so much more narrow but it ended up not being as bad as I thought. I saw a lot of familiar faces like the Nemu Nemu gang, Rachel Young, Jean Kang, Diana Sprinkle, Mike Vega. Opening night was pretty good. I sold quite a few books the first night.
I took the opportunity to see as much as I could early in the morning and this time I took far more photos than I was able to in the previous years, mostly of exhibits and dolls. I managed to get all the way down to the Warner Bros booth only to see they were being over protective of their freebies. Poo… Ah well. I was able to get quite a few things from DC and one being the Fringe book I wanted to get. I also got a mountain of free comics. Awesome! When the show started I was so surprised to find out that I had many repeat customers. The best thing had to be this little one year old boy that bought a doll from me. Not only did he give me a high five, but he gave me a fist bump! It was so adorable. *melt* I was so happy to have sold more books and dolls. Javier Hernandez popped by and made an appearance.
Friday was a good day too…had more time to chat with Diana Sprinkle and other table neighbors. I saw the crew from Lampost Comics and the Christian Comics Society. The artist on Revelations came over and introduced himself. Fred Perry came over and bought a Dvorak doll and a sketch book. =) Awesome! I ran into Doug TenNapel and spoke for a bit. Sales were great and people that bought the first issues of either of my books came back for the sequels. Totally cool! I was able to meet with people for potential work leads and had some people actually come up to me and apologize…so strange but in a good way.
So Saturday was a strange day for sales…it was normally the fastest day but it was slow because people were actually lining up for tickets for SDCC 2012. Sales weren’t bad but they weren’t great. I still sold well enough though. I got some more free shirts, books and bags. By the last day the mile long hike to the center was easier. Alexandria Neonakis stopped by. We used to chat all the time online and she drew me so much Zori fan art. Tim Beedle popped on by. Kassandra Heller came by and several girls from the Womanthology project came by too.
Sales were much better than opening night. I sold more art cards than the previous days. Was glad to talk to all my table neighbors. Convention closed early and we packed up and made the 3 hour trek home. There was a strange amount of traffic near Orange County. Got home, unpacked and went to bed.
All in all it was a great show but I was glad to get home and sleep in my own bed.

Hi everyone! I'm going to be at San Diego Comic Con 2011 in the Small Press section, Table N04 - Zorilita -Mary Bellamy. I will be debuting my new books Faux Facts - The Truth Can Be Strange! Volume 3, Ah Heck!! - The Angel Chronicles and Sugar Bits, my brand new sketchbook with never before seen artwork inside. I'll also have my new plush doll line, buttons, artist trading cards and of course my other previous volumes. So stop on by and say 'hi' and pick up some cool gear.

So I had a speck of time and decided to draw another Ex Libris for the Girls Drawin' Girls. So, here's an older drawing of Bunny that's in my Sugar Bits book. Enjoy!

I probably will never do "finished" versions of these.

So, here’s another book plate for the Girls Drawin’ Girls volume 4 book! Pre Order the book and get this original piece of artwork or another in your book! http://girlsdrawingirls.blogspot.com/2011/06/gdg-volume-iv-pre-sale.html
This was originally a drawing I did way back in 2006 so there’s the reason for the slight difference in styles. I redrew it but you can still see old influences. I finally got to draw something with some Chinese influences and Chao Sao Bao (?) is tasty so I gave a bowl to Jereboa. Maybe it will be the year of the Jereboa? (KFP2 reference) ;)
