It tasted like monkey business

I’m not sure if it’s the proverbial coffeehouse writer in me or the simple fact that expensive latte concoctions remain a permanent fixture to all the days of my life ending with the letter y. But at this point, I’m officially deeming this tasty little sidekick, otherwise known as caffeine arm candy… my newest/most traveled accessory.

P.S. I'm hoping to announce the winner of the CURRENT/ELLIOTT Giveaway very soon!


(Tee & Cake gorilla tank, Chloe boots, Vintage silver bracelet, boyfriend button-down shirt)

I used to have a pair of boots a lot like those, I was really bummed when I actually wore them to death. The monkey shirt is awesome, but only because it looks great on you. xo

I haven't had any coffee in a week. I've been trying to reduce my dependency on caffeine but this just made me want some even more.

I love your boots, those heels make the combat boot even better.
Style Porn said…
There you go, rubbing those Chloe boots in my face again! Really though, they look super awesome on you. Your legs are long enough to pull them off without looking like you were chopped off at the knees (which is pretty much how I would look). I guess it's for the best that I'll probably never own them...

Gorillas and chloe and then you go and put my fav Starbucks in the mix. Bella, you're killing me!!

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!

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…
