Just like last time, Bored Panda reached out to Bella with some new questions! First, we asked the artist if perhaps she had any upcoming series of works we should be looking forward to.

“Since I got pregnant and became a mom, I’ve been very inspired by all the new experiences I have as a new mom. Some moments are wholesome and some are challenging. Throughout the years, I share my story as a woman through my comics and now I’m planning to share this new chapter of my life with my audience. I have visualized all the ideas in my head, all I need to do is draw them into comics. I hope my audience will enjoy them once I put them out!”

Over the years, Bella has created a lot of comics, therefore, we couldn't help but ask if the artist had a favorite one.

“The most recent one would be the comic about my interest in true crime and murder stories told by Bailey Sarian. Not long after I posted it, she left a comment for me and I was over the moon!”

The artist's style is quite colorful and fun to look at, however, for each artist, finding their own style is a journey of its own as you try new things along the way.

“As someone who spent years to find the art style that I finally feel comfortable with, I’d like to try and convert my comics into animation. It would be a nice addition to my platform!”

We also asked if Bella could perhaps share some advice with those of you who might be thinking of starting to make comics as well.

“Just enjoy it! When I first started, I didn’t focus on anything but having fun with it. It is the best motivation for me to keep creating because I can have fun doing what I love and other people can enjoy reading them as well.”

Each artist creates for a reason, and Bella is no different as she told us what she hopes to accomplish with her work, “All I want is to put a smile on someone’s face when they read my comics. I’m happy if I could make them feel seen and they can relate to my stories. With that being said, I’d like to publish my own comic books someday!”

Being a popular artist on Instagram, we have no doubt that Bella has received a lot of comments over the years, so we asked her if she had one that particularly stood out to her, and here's what she said, “I cherish all of the feedback I get from my audience. The positive comments encourage me to keep creating and the constructive ones help me improve and aim to do better with my work.

The special ones that give me an extra boost are from the artists or people that I look up to who are kind enough to leave me comments or even just like my posts.”

Lastly, we wanted to know if the artist had any other hobbies besides making art, and Bella was more than happy to share a little bit more about herself and her interests.

“I love cooking and going for a walk with my dog and now also with my baby. I also love makeup so whenever I have some time off, I put my makeup on, cook something delicious and take my babies out for a walk.”
