Mystery magazines † platforms


(close-up sample of vamp girl painting that I finished last month) 
 
When I'm sick, and I mean the kind of sick when every cold symptom stamped out on that bottle of NyQuil feels like a personal vendetta for the flu shot I meant to get, the last thing on my to-do list is having my picture taken. On the other hand, randomly cell-photographing everything in sight, practicing funky nail art 101, trapping myself in the art studio amongst little piles of crumpled tissues resembling abstract clouds, reading Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, using Tumblr until my fingers bleed, online shopping, and reacquainting myself with Balenciaga was just what the doctor ordered.

“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.

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…
