Lucy Bellwood’s Baggywrinkles: A Lubber’s Guide to Life at Sea

lucybaggywI 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.

  1. The Tall Ship Lady Washington is cruising the Columbia River Gorge area and I just read about Lucy Bellwood and Baggywrinkles on their Facebook Page.

    In your video clip…Lucy mentions she works out of Portland, Oregon and is familiar with the beautiful Lady Washington.
    Thanks for giving me a little more information on what sounds to be a fascinating book.

    Yes it is the Lady Washington that Lucy crewed on, I had the greatest pleasure to have crewed with her on several occasions. I’d gladly crew with her again anytime, anywhere. Few people have been able to capture the feelings, sights and sounds of sailing on a tall ship, as well as Lucy has.
