My name is Mary Bellamy I am a professional licensed artist working on such properties as My Little Pony, Marvel, DC Comics, Adventure Time and more. This page serves both as a portfolio site and a site detailing my own girls entertainment branding. I've worked nearly 20 years in licensed artwork, illustration, comics and other entertainment media. I saw the need for more girl-centric properties that inspires girls, teens and women through products that do not rely on the standard marketing norms like princesses and sparkles. I decided to start publishing my own series of graphic novels and have sold and promoted them at shows like San Diego Comic Con since 2009. I've worked with various groups such as Womanthology, Girls Drawin' Girls and the Girl Scouts because I truly believe in bringing diversity into the field.

We did it! We've been chosen to exhibit for our 10th official year at San Diego Comic Con!
20 years ago a starry eyed teenager came to SDCC for the very first time with hopes of getting published with Ah Heck!!. Unfortunately it was rejected from that anthology. The following year I found another company, SFA, and it was published in the beginning of the next year. Faux Facts was published not long after with, Radio Comix in Mangaphile. With the decline of the anthology books, I was encouraged to try selling my own POD books at a friend's table in 2008. I had a pretty good response so I decided to take the plunge and make both Ah Heck!! and Faux Facts into full fledged color graphic novels. Over the years my table expanded from a meager two books and some buttons to 12 graphic novels, two sketchbooks a doll line, buttons, stickers and my official My Little Pony books. It's been a whirlwind. While there had been some up and downs, getting my footing, talking to people the over all experience has been great. As a child I found that there wasn't much for girls out there unless you were a princess fan. Characters like Gosalyn Mallard and Penny from Inspector Gadget were far and few between. To see the young girls I cater to smile after seeing my work makes me smile. I'm so grateful to be able to continue doing what I love and giving a little piece of my soul in every book. Up until this year SDCC has been my exclusive place to find my work. I've been doing My Little Pony shows and moving outward from there. Who knows what the future holds...but I can tell you there will be some big news coming soon. Stay tuned!
Ah Heck!! The Angel Chronicles Omnibus Edition Coming Soon!
Zorilita Mary Bellamy will be moving forward to finally make my dream of compiling the three separate volumes into one book. The art has been updated, bonus art has been created, text has been proofread for the umpteenth time and put in the corrected order without the volume two flash back. I'm just finishing up the formating. Since the book is around 162 pages the gutters have to change in width.
