Amelie “Ami-Chan” Belcher was born in Baton-Bloody-Boring-Rouge Louisiana where the combination of chemical plant fumes and river water did major damage to her fragile little mind at an early age. By all accounts, she started drawing at the age of five (when she figured out that the pencil goes on the paper and not up your nose) and didn’t stop drawing until she ran out of paper…twenty years later.
Amelie taught high school art for four years but lost interest in teaching when it started cutting into her drinking time. She now travels the country selling her award-winning art, doing one of a kind commissions for con-goers, giving the best damn panels on earth, and being paid tribute to by her army of fans known as the “Ami Army” in the form of Pocky and manga. Known as “the angriest chick on the net”, she is the creator of the popular webcomic “The Real Life Adventures of Amelie” at Cordeval.com which is read by desperately bored people all around the world.
