I have long been a fan of Lucy Bellwood. A tall ship sailor and cartoonist; she is talented, smart and funny. Her wonderful series, Baggywrinkles, based on the time she has spent working aboard replica 18th-century tall ships, has appeared an issue at a time online. She is now raising money via Kickstarter to publish the entire series, including new and as yet unseen work, as Baggywrinkles: A Lubber’s Guide to Life at Sea.
Things are going well. Her goal was to raise to $15,000. As of this moment, with 20 days to go, she has raised over $18,000. If she reaches $20,000, she is promising to hire a colorist so that the entire book— six issues of comics—will be printed in full color. I have pledged my support and encourage others to do so as well. I am looking forward to seeing Baggywrinkles: A Lubber’s Guide to Life at Sea, in full color! Click here to help make that happen.
