Rumi in graphite

It's been a while since I held a pencil in my hand for more than just a basic pre-paint sketch. So, I decided to put down the watercolors, temporarily, and heavily work the graphite and charcoals in a new, currently untitled series... at least until those pretty colors start beckoning again. Inspired by Rumi Neely of fashiontoast and a photo by Colin Sokol, I sent this to her week...hopefully she likes it even more than the last.

Designs by Bella: Vintage Lollipops x Magazzini del Sale Capsule Collection

Last year, Italian designer Graziano Moro of Magazzini Del Sale contacted me about collaborating and designing a five-piece Limited Edition capsule collection for their SS 11 Love Can Change the World t-shirt line. Having never been given such an incredibly surreal opportunity before, you can imagine my absolute surprise... followed by some sort of psychotic jubilation. At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x M…
