Amelie Belcher
(aka Ami-Chan)

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.

She is the artist behind the manga "Loud Snow" and the web comics "the real life adventures of Ami-chan" and "Bounty Haunters".

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.

David Stanworth
Snafu Comics
(Artist - Snafu Comics)

David Stanworth has been interested in video games and animation for his entire life.  When he realised he's FAR too worthless to do either, he stuck with comics. Snafu-Comics started in the summer of 2002 and has quickly grown to incorporate over a dozen seperate comics, Snafu, PowerPuff Girl Doujinshi, Grim Tales, Sugar Bits, Tin: The Incompetent Ninja, Ever After, Sticky Floors, and many more.  With more to be added soon!

Snafu has constantly been an evolving comic often drastically changing art styles and directions comic to comic.  The subject matter could range from anime, videogames, politics, social commentary or fart jokes (mostly fart jokes.) But what Snafu really excells at is a strong forum community of active participants. Snafu wouldn't exist without the the fantastic support from the online community. We're excited to meet everyone at Metrocon so come by our table and say hi! Plus we have some pretty cool T-shirts and prints ;)
