Artist Biography

Hi! My name is Mary 'Zorilita' Bellamy. I'm a freelance artist working in comics, illustration, sketch cards and an animation assistant. I live out in Los Angeles, CA.

I began working in comics in 1999 with SFA as an inker and a creator/artist for their anthology books. Then moved on to Radio Comix, Antarctic Press, Slave Labor Graphics and IDW Publishing. I've also been a guest artist in various Tokyopop OEL mangas.

In between working in comics I got my start in animation working on the Drew Carey Green Screen Show, animation clean up for Titmouse and as an art directer, designer and animator for The Royal Ladybugs and have pitched several properties for animation, including but not limited to Ah Heck!!, Faux Facts, Cosmic Cupcake, Peaches and Plum etc.

Soon after I decided to revisit my comics background and began to publish my two series, Faux Facts - The Truth Can Be Strange! and Ah Heck!! - The Angel Chronicles and exhibited at San Diego Comic Con. I've been exhibiting there since 2008 (unofficially) and 2009 officially with my own booth.

Later, I moved on to the original sketch card market working on licensed properties like Marvel with Rittenhouse and Upperdeck, DC Comics Women of Legend, DC Villians, Adventure Time, Ghosbutsters, Walking Dead for Cryptozoic Entertainment, Star Trek withRittenhouse Archives, Mars Attacks, UpperDeck Inc, Shi, Lady Death, Josie and the Pussycats, Dean Yeagle's Mandy and many more with 5finity and Deadworld and Transformers with Breygent.

I then moved on to become involved in the Womanthology project with Renae De Liz and IDW Publishing. I became an editor, designer and contributor to the Womanthology Sketchbook. I was asked to be an artist and colorist for the Womanthology: Heroic Graphic Novel for other creators including Gail Simone. I contributed to the Womanthology: Space follow up book as an artist and was a guest on several panels and book signings at conventions like Pacific Pony Con, Long Beach Comic Con, Long Beach Comic Expo, Comikaze, Wondercon and San Diego Comic Con.

My latest projects include: illustrating the retailer incentive covers for My Little Pony comic book for issues 21,28, 32, 36, 38,43 and 56 for IDW Publishing and creating the online persona of Lacey Boggs Voice Over Superstar!!! for Lisa Biggs, a well known voice over artist.
