100 DEMON DIALOGUES
ABOUT 100 DEMON DIALOGUES
Navigating the rocky shores of self doubt with charm and honesty, 100 Demon Dialogues is a collection of comics for anyone who wants to talk back to the little voice in their head that says "You're no good."
Cartoonist Lucy Bellwood is beset by a tiny, petulant demon who embodies workaholism, imposter syndrome, and fear of missing out. Fed up with its constant nagging, she sets out to defang and humanize her inner critic in a series of conversational comics. From overcoming self-doubt to prioritizing self-care, Bellwood and her demon embody a hilarious and relatable partnership that will resonate with people from all walks of life.
100 Demon Dialogues reminds us that we are not alone in our fear, and that our best self always comes hand-in-hand with a little demon of our own.
ABOUT LUCY BELLWOOD
Lucy Bellwood is a freelance illustrator and cartoonist born in 1989 to a pair of eccentric British ex-pats. She was raised in the orange-laden valley of Ojai, CA with a healthy disrespect for clothing and a backyard menagerie of chickens, goats, rabbits, and cats.
Since 2007 she has been an avid lover of sailing and tall ships, working as a deckhand aboard the Lady Washington and immersing herself in the golden age of sail. During her time at sea she has traveled along the Eastern Seaboard, up and down the West Coast, and across the Pacific, participated in several tall ship festivals, taught countless schoolchildren, and dislocated one  finger.
Lucy launched into a full-time freelance career in 2012 with the help of a wildly-successful Kickstarter campaign to print True Believer, a 36-page comic about having the guts to do what you love. In January of 2014 she became a full-time member of Periscope Studio (now known as Helioscope), the largest collective of freelance comics professionals in North America. In 2015 she completed a second highly-successful Kickstarter to print Baggywrinkles: a Lubber’s Guide to Life at Sea.
Lucy also contributes nonfiction comics to The Nib and illustrates a regular feature in the all-ages fantasy series Cartozia Tales. Her work has appeared in a numerous print anthologies and magazines, as well as on websites like BuzzFeed, Macworld, The Stranger, and Medium.
