And we're done! by MaryBellamy
Kickstarter is done!
I want to give a huge thank you to everyone who backed my Kickstarter. Some of you are longtime fans and some of you are new to this campaign and my work. Thank you!

And for the future, we didn't quite get to the $1000 goal I had in mind for doing books and plush dolls in a future campaign. I still think I want to go ahead and try to do both of those projects but I will have to see when I want to proceed. Also, if I do one more enamel pin run I am going to probably shorten the length of the Kickstarter to 2 or 3 weeks because I funded in one day with this one and it dragged a bit. For those wondering, I am thinking of doing some pin-up pins and pins that embodied my Zorilita Guardians line as the plush dolls are now almost extinct.

If you missed my campaign entirely or don't do Kickstarter, you can preorder my pins here on my webstore. squareup.com/store/zorilitamar…

In other news, I'm back to working on Faux Facts! I'm now on volume 9 and will probably wrap up with issue 10. Cosmic Cupcake Chaos was not able to finish it's run in an anthology so I am revamping it to make it more as I had originally envisioned. This book may be a limited run Kickstarter project. We'll have to see.

I am also open to commissions via Patreon.
Recently I have been able to do many pin-ups for my Ah Heck!! series as a result. Check it out here www.patreon.com/zorilita

Ah Heck!! God is a Woman Kickstarter Pin by MaryBellamy

We funded in one day! And unlocked a stretch goal. Can we do more? I wanted to try for new pins inspired by Faux Facts and Ah Heck!! It's now live! www.kickstarter.com/projects/z…


I'm currently doing a series of fashion illustrations for the Faux Facts girls as I wind down on their series' Magical Arc. Any particular characters you'd like to see?

San Diego Comic-Con was my best one yet! A big thank you to everyone that stopped by my table this year. I've made the decision that Ah Heck!! is only going to the omnibus version from here on out. It is the same price as buying all three books together and looks so much better than the original volumes. You can still buy them on Amazon but for shows, it's changing. Faux Facts' current magical arc is most likely ending in one or two more volumes. I hope to find a way to collect them as it's now 500 pages of comics!

I do have some enamel pins left over from the show so those will be for sale on my site here and also as rewards for my next Kickstarter coming out in September.

I will be having some more sketch card sets coming out on some big name things! Other stuff is coming but I can't talk about it yet. I'm not sure what's going on with Mangazine but that version of Cosmic is not canon. I will be doing my own thing and maybe Kickstarting that as well. I will also be on a Cthulhu Kickstarter coming in September.

I may also be returning to work on animations again. So stay tuned!

Zori Animated by MaryBellamy
...is right around the corner! I wanted to put together some graphics to show what I will have at the show this year. The newest items are enamel pins and sticker sheets. The dolls are getting down in numbers. I'm thinking Dvorak, the black one will sell out and he's gone forever. Jereboa sold out last year so that would leave only Honey. I will also have art cards and some leftover lanyard buddies. Those will be phased out and I will most likely be making more professional merchandise as opposed to handmade items save for art cards. So here's a map and some fun graphics to show everything I'll have. Hope to see you there for my 10th year exhibiting!

Hey guys!
Hooray! We did it! by MaryBellamy

We funded our very first Kickstarter! We were also able to get one of the stretch goals! Extra pins will be available through my website and at San Diego Comic-Con! Now we wait on funds and then the orders go in!

I went ahead and funded a limited run of these sticker sheets. They are high-quality vinyl stickers, not the cheap paper kind.

Ok! So I wanted to finally update this journal. I wanted to mention that if you get any books for Free Comic Book Day, I helped do colors for the Disney Manga Nightmare Before Christmas Tokyopop book. So check it out if you want. I've also been working on Cleopatra in Space with Scholastic as a color flatter so that's been a lot of fun.

I'm still working on the next Faux Facts book as we speak about 2/3 of the way done with it. I've also gone ahead and just jumped into making more merchandise for my books as it's the 10th year exhibiting at SDCC so I need some nice things. If you'd like to pre-order a sheet or two. Let me know. They are 4x6 inches and will most likely be $6 plus shipping. If you order more than one I can cut cost on the shipping. The enamel pins are still underway. I am only waiting on the factories to reply since the Chinese New Year has slowed communication. Below are the prototypes for the stickers and the pins. Pins will most likely end up being $12 plus shipping.

I'm working on doing more animations of my work and those will pop up here and there and probably be an animated video at some point over on Youtube. These are mostly from Ah Heck!! but there will be more from Faux Facts coming soon. Do you have any requests of my characters from my universe you'd like to see move? Let me know.

I would like to do a Kickstarter for some enamel pins based on  Ah Heck!!, Faux Facts and my other properties. I should have some more news soon.
Ah Heck!! Enamel Pins by MaryBellamy

In the coming year, you'll be seeing more books from me. One from a company I used to work with years ago. I might even post my pilot pitch reel for a pitch that was passed over by a few places that tie in with earlier mentioned comic. Then there is the one with Angry Viking Press! I will be on Evil Diva so that's cool! Synergy with the devil girls.

Finally, I may do some more "animated" drawings of my characters soon. Look forward to seeing you in the new year and I'll be doing more promotional art of Ah Heck!!, Faux Facts and more!

So Christmas 2017 is almost over and it was a pretty mellow one over here. It was just me and mom. I did manage to get a pile of gifts, mostly toys because I'm an adult. XD  I was not able to get the new release of the mini Disney vinyl dolls but I did get the Costco My Little Pony multipack set, Photo Finish's Equestria Mini doll, the SIA MLP from the movie, Strawberry Shortcake's Orange Blossom, Shoppies dolls and some new hoodies and t-shirts. I got mom some more cooking gear, high-end cake pans, and cookie cutters. For dinner, we had prime rib, beets, and green beans. Mom was able to make gluten-free peanut butter cookies and an eggnog cheesecake. We took some cookies over to a neighbor and they came over with some pozole. So overall, it's been a nice day.

But back to work and things! I'm almost done uploading volumes 1-2 of Ah Heck!! online. I'm not sure that I will post volume 3 simply because you can buy all the books on Amazon or from me at SDCC again this year. I mainly posted it because of Mr. Copy/paste. Ah Heck!! is already finished and I did one final book last year The Fallen Ones that talks about what happened to everyone else after Angel.

I've also finally been able to see some of the work I did with The Royal Ladybugs now becoming toy prototypes. It's really awesome seeing stuff I drew years ago being turned into actual toys. So surreal!

Happy Thanksgiving! This certainly has been the year of the pony. My first year of doing MLP shows and they’ve been some of my best shows. I finally finished Ah Heck!! the Fallen Ones. I met tons of new fans, did several panels, and never felt more valued this year. 

I’m also thankful to have worked on Dollface with @ActionLab and reconnected with my friends @angryvikings for Evil Diva and more and with @russellnohelty on the Monster Anthology. There is also another mystery project I’m finishing up as we speak! Many good things.

I got to go see family and Northern California. While there have been some hard things this year there’s still several good things to be happy about. Thank you to all of you for following me here too. 

Happy Thanksgiving! Have some pie!

Hi everyone! I just got back from Equestria LA and am finally unpacked. It was an amazing show! This was their final year despite being my first show. I had my own dealer table as well as being on three panels. Everyone was super nice and I felt so appreciated. I sat next to Agnes Gawboski and Aynsley King who were both great. I saw so happy to see Faux Facts and Ah Heck!! We’re very positively recieved by the congoers. I sold out of the magical girl special and sold several complete sets of Ah Heck!! Sadly Sugar Bits wasn’t very popular this time around. Though more Zorilita Guardians found new homes and I did a pile of commissions. We were at a fancy cocktail party with lamb lollipops, cheeses and wine. The deviled eggs were amazing as well. 

I got got to meet new vip guests like Big Jim and more voice actors. Saw some familiar faces and everyone was so sweet in the green room. The panels were fun! I got to teach little girls how to draw a pony and we named her Heartfilia. The comics panel by Illustrious Q was fun too and I moderated our self publishing panel as well. Lots of good questions. I met up with the creator of My Dreamy Star and Leekfish. Saw some vendors from Pacific Pony Con too. Good times. I really would love to do more pony cons.They really do treat me the best. 

And the other show I do, SDCC is going to be my 10th official year marking Ah Heck!!s 20th year out there! I’m hoping to do something special for this show. And we’ll see what the future holds. 

See you all around!

SDCC 2017 by MaryBellamy
SDCC 2017

So I had another great year at SDCC. Next year will by my 10th year exhibiting and my 20th year attending. I'm so grateful for all the people who buy my work each year and even more so to those that come back each year. I managed to sell another 30 dolls to new homes and within a short while the entire run of dolls I've made will be all gone. I'm not sure I'll do another run but it was nice to be able to sell out of at least Jereboa so far. I sold many books as well. The Sugar Bits sketchbook will be coming to a new venue so I probably won't have it with me next show. I might have it at smaller cons though. I took tons of photos which are over on my tumblr and instagram. It was great seeing all of my friends at SDCC too. Some people I had no idea I'd run into there.

Hope to see you all again next year.

Ah Heck!! The Angel Chronicles
I want to thank those that have been checking out my web comic version of Ah Heck!! It means a lot. You may have noticed me posting one of my previously print only comics, Ah Heck!!. The previous hard bound books had older art that no longer represented my art style so I decided to redo the artwork. I also decided to post my comics online up to a certain point because having been exclusively in print and exclusive to SDCC it limited my audience reach and promotional abilities. The entire last volume will not be posted online. I will only be creating promotional artwork for Ah Heck!! now that The Fallen Ones is completed, four years after the final AHTAC volume back in 2013. My dream is to be able to combine the three books readily available on Amazon into one completed book. Ah Heck!! is my baby. It's a personal autobiographically inspired story which has inspired at least a few people out there. Want to read it? Go here! goo.gl/ec6AZo

Guest art? If you would like to do guest art for the Ah Heck!! comic note me here or email me at zorilita at gmail dot com.

Also Tapas has been removed as a Mirror due to some shady TOS changes. I also do not give a second chance to companies that do this whether or not they reverse their decisions as they'll just wait til people forget again and try it again.

Angry Viking Press
I will be working with them on some unannounced things in the near future. You're gonna love it. =) Incidentally it's funny how small the world is. We all got our start at Shanda Fantasy Arts way back in the late 90s early 2000's.

Catch you all later.

Crystal Mountain Pony Con 2017 Wrap Up

So if you’ve followed my posts for the last week or so, you’ll know I was asked to be a VIP guest ATM Crystal Mountain Pony Con out in Salt Lake City this weekend. I had a blast! I did opening and closing ceremonies, a kids panel with Andrea Libman (pinkie pie), a spotlight on my work, my first totally solo panel, and an episode and draw panel. I gave the drawing I did to a little girl in the audience. We had a VIP dinner at a fancy restaurant and toured the Mormon temple yard. I did very well selling on the con floor. Sold out of all my sketch books, most of the comics and my dolls went for the charity auction. Everyone was super nice. I’d love to do it again.

And next up is....

San Diego Comic Con 2017 our 9th official year exhibiting!

I will be back again for my ninth official year. I will be at Zorilita -Mary Bellamy Small Press N04. I will have 7 volumes of Faux Facts, 3 volumes of Ah Heck!! The Angel Chronicles, the new Ah Heck!! The Fallen Ones and Sugar Bits - Sassy Sweet Sketchbook volume 2. I will also have copies of my MLP books available too. If left over I will also have prints, stickers, original artist cards, plush and button bags.

Hi Guys!

Crystal Mountain Pony Con 2017

Hey guys!

I'm going to be stepping out the door in a little bit but I wanted to let you know I am the Guest of Honor for CMPC out in Salt Lake City, Utah. If you're out that way come check it out!

I'll have a table in the vendor hall. Table 21. I'll have my Sugar Bits sketchbook, prints, plush dolls, commissions and comics. Also pony cons are the only shows I do commissions for. So if that interests you check it out.

There are two exclusive prints I've done for the Convention itself limited to only 100 copies. The poster image is the regular one and the poster in the poster is the exclusive metallic print. I will have the last full set of my Zorilita Guardian dolls up for auction for the Utah Food Bank Charity Auction.

I will have 4 panels....the most I've ever done at one show! Friday I'm doing a pinata event with Andrea Libman (Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy), then a spotlight on my work, a VIP dinner. Then on Saturday, I'll be doing a draw and watch of the Equestria Girl episode.

Come say hi if you're there.

The previous hard bound books had older art that no longer represents my art style so I decided to redo the artwork. After a recent case of plagiarism of my work I decided to post my comics online up to a certain point. You'll see what I'm talking about if you read the other story. A shame when a customer buys your stuff and then knocks it off. Either way I was here first and am not going any where. I hope though that the rest of you do enjoy reading the story. I will most likely be doing a Kickstarter to fund my book. You can start to read the comic here. ahhecktheangelchronicles.tumbl…

Sorry Tapas has been removed as a Mirror due to some shady TOS changes. I also do not give a second chance to companies that do this whether or not they reverse their decisions as they'll just wait til people forget again and try it again.

Thanks guys!

I am looking for guest art for Ah Heck!! The Angel Chronicles  so if you think you can do something nice, send me a note or email at zorilita@gmail.com Here's a sample image:

Ah Heck!! The Omnibus Edition is now being proofed and will be coming soon. I'm hoping to completely phase out the three volume set at least by next year and have the complete one volume book. In addition Ah Heck!! The Fallen Ones is going to be premiering at SDCC 2017. It's an oversized issue clocking in at 80 pages instead of the usual 50 pages! Full color and full bleed it details what happened to Chastity, Hope, Faith and the mysterious Providence. I will of course sign them.

Pacific Pony Con 2017 Write Up

OK, now that I've fully had time to unpack, clean up and get settled back in at home I thought I should write up how the show was. Now many of you might not know but this was my first show as a Guest of Honor, not just a panelist, professional, exhibitor or workshop leader. I had no idea what to expect so I went in unsure. The trip down to San Diego was far easier than I thought it would be even in the rain which was a great relief as I had never made a trek this long alone.  I got there safely and the hotel was nice. I got my own room with two beds and a gorgeous view of the bay where I could see all the various Coast Guard and cruise ships docking for the night.

Set up was longer than I had hoped because I didn't realize I could have asked for help. No matter, the table was set up and everyone was super nice. It felt so different because they actually cared when I needed help and ran errands for me. I was treated with respect that I had not become accustomed to. It was nice. I had been worried because I wasn't sure how I would go about getting food as I was alone at my table and didn't want to leave. I had snacks but that's not the same as real food. But I was able to send out volunteers which helped greatly. Though I think I've had my share of salty food for the month.

The first day I had my very own Spotlight panel and while it wasn't super crowded it was nice being on a stage alone instead of just part of a group like all my other panelist gigs had been. People seemed really positive. Sales were brisk at my table though I did have to mention who I was many times. Either way most people were really kind and bought a lot of stuff. Prints, commissions and my dolls were the most popular items. I was surprised that Jereboa sold as well as he did but I was glad because he usually moves really slow at SDCC. I had my first convention commissions since 2001 which was less challenging that I thought it was going to be because this convention was very laid back. Also I didn't have to stand all day. I was able to sit and not yell to get people to come over. It was nice. I talked to a lot of fans, other artists and vendors so I wasn't totally alone. I was glad to have Sara and Tony as table neighbors. It was pretty chill. It was strange going back to an empty room though. I didn't do much in the way of panels and parties because I had something come up but I could hear the dance party all the way up on the 8th floor. XD

The next two days were fun. I sold even more. My second panel was different as I shared it with Tony and Sara but we did our best to answer all the questions given to us. We gave advice on self care, getting into art and characters we'd be. This crowd was bigger than the previous one. People seemed to enjoy it. We returned to our tables and got in a few more hours of sales. I donated a set of my dolls to the auction and they sold 10$ over asking. I'm always glad to help out.

Then the convention was over. I was sad to leave. The weekend didn't seem arduous like my other shows. I would love to go again. The relief of not having to worry about the hotel or travel cost greatly eased any of my concerns and everyone was very kind and respectful. It was a welcome change to the hustle and bustle of SDCC where it's easy to be overlooked in the rainbow sea of booths and stands. I hope I can go back next year as a guest. I had a lot of fun.
Hi guys!

It's just been announced online that I am an official VIP guest at the upcoming pony con Pacific Ponycon 2017 out in San Diego. If you live out that way and want to check it out...I'll be there! www.pacificponycon.com I'll be doing some panels and have a table and some other cool goodies. Go on over and check it out, order tickets or what have you. Also if you want a water color commission let me know and you can pre pay and pick up at the show!

Also I want to thank those that have been checking out my webcomic version of Ah Heck!! It means a lot. You may have noticed me posting one of my previously print only comics, Ah Heck!!. The previous hard bound books had older art that no longer represents my art style so I decided to redo the artwork. After a recent case of plagiarism of my work I decided to post my comics online up to a certain point. You'll see what I'm talking about if you read the other story. A shame when a customer buys your stuff and then knocks it off. Either way I was here first and am not going any where. I hope though that the rest of you do enjoy reading the story. I will most likely be doing a Kickstarter to fund my book. You can start to read the comic here. ahhecktheangelchronicles.tumbl… Thanks guys!

As for SDCC...it was awesome! My best year yet! I sold out of Faux Facts 1 and 6, the magical girl special issue. I sold tons of Ah Heck!! and adopted over 45 dolls! Hooray. I will be back again next year hopefully with even more stuff to sell. If you bought any of my stuff I would love to see any photos of your merch. =) Catch you guys later.
Hi guys! 

Hard to believe it's already been another year since last SDCC. I will once again be in the small press section. You can find me at Small Press table N04 Zorilita-Mary Bellamy right near aisle 1700. 

I am am going to of course have my books with me again. faux Facts is on volume 7 and shows us a bit more about Tigerlilly and her past, Rainbow's hold on Daisy and why Rosemary dresses the way she does. I'm planning on only one more volume before closing out this arc of the series. Ah Heck!! the Angel Chronicles will be back for its 8th year and will be changing its format after this year. With completely remastered artwork I am hoping to post a sample of the book and kickstart it as the one single book it was meant to be. If all goes as planned there will be a sequel/interqual detailing how the other girls got there and what happened post Angel's story. 

I will also have my dolls with me as well. My little mascots will be on sale as well as a bonus offer to those that buy all three Ah Heck!! books. Jereboa, the yellow doll has run very low with only 25 or so remaining so it is entirely possible he will sell out. If you have to have one or were hesitant in the past, now is the time to get him.

This is is the first year I will have professionally printed mini prints of my My Little Pony, TMNT, Jem and Princess covers, art tests and samples. They are 4x6 on card stock. They are limited to 25 of each and will not be reprinted in the same way if at all. I still have button packs, charms, bookmarks and artist trading cards too! I will also have my MLP comics you can buy and I will sign any you might have too. :)

Looking forward to seeing you there.

ps. Thanks to whomever gave me another month here on DevArt!
