*original illustration by Ces, vandalized by...someone.


Deborah said...

Oh Bella, I am giggling with delight, squealling with joy! How could one want for and Ces joined together in art.

Perfection. All my love, Deb

esque said...

Vandals, indeed! Lol! Great collab, now, where can I get this as my very own print? :)

Caroline said...

Triffic, bit a Bella, bit a Ces!! But tell us more!!....

Sarah said...

Waaahhhhaaa..I love it - wonderful to see this!! Giggle Snort!!
Hugs, Sarah

TattingChic said...

Okay, now, forgive me... since I am confused...are they flatulent (hence, the "pffft") or are they being facetious???

Hmmm...perhaps they are being facetiously flatulent??? or...OH I KNOW flatulently facetious!

Well I do need to tell you that you last comment on my blog made me chuckle that you had to write the word "untat" for your word verification. that cracks me up that you felt you needed to com over to a tatting blog to "restore balance to the world"...YOU R too funny! YOU MAKE ME LAUGH, friend!

caren said...

Darling! vandals? Doesn't look like that to me. Thanks for all your nice means a lot.

linda cardina said...

BWAHAHAHAAHAAHA... THANK U ... I NEEDED THAT!!! it's just like the two of you to ALWAYS brighten my day... LOVE the expression on ces's face...and bella, what cute lil' tongue u have. haha..


aimee said...

only you could get away with hijacking one of ces' drawings! your illustration styles are so different yet they are both brilliant. you two are great collaborators.

theartofpuro said...

Love it!

Bella Sinclair said...

Ah yes, Deborah, together in art. No frequent flyer points in it, though.

Hello, esque! I am a vandal. I am....Blogger Banksy.

Caroline, join us and it should become clear. Pfffft

Hey there, Sarah! Giggle, Snort, Hugs. Isn't that a Sandra Boynton book?

HAHAHA! TattingChic! It is a brain fart, released facially. Hence, a face fart.

Hello, lovely Caren. To you, everything looks rosy pink.

The better to lick you with, Linda dear. WHAT?! Who said that!

Hijacked! Yes, aimee, that's the perfect word for it. She was an unwitting collaborator.

Monica, thank you. :)

Marie S said...

I love that you have vandalized Ces picture, she is even drawing when she isn't, lol!!!

Hey Bella the Cyclops guy is one of my favorites too. I love his sleepy look, just happened not planned, and I left it that way.
It is because he sleeps all day and prowls at night looking for candy corn.

I am so glad Ces won too, plus it made me laugh out loud. My computer is broken and I have had little time on any one else’s computer, so I was sad and then I smiled and laughed huge. So it was good.

I think Madi is so cute; it is hard for me not to squeeze her too hard.
I love that pot too and when I get it planted for Madi’s mom I will put a picture up. It is even going to be cute with the plant in it. I just love the colors too!!

Ces said...

I have to say this not reluctantly but rather with delight:

My drawings look better when "vandalized" by you. So read this. You dearest, the one with the tongue may "vandalize" anything of mine any time.

I love that girl with the tongue. She makes me feel so young!

I think that is a brain fart? See? The young girl has a bigger FPOT, hence, a bigger brain fart while the older one has a smaller brain fart.


Amy C said...

such cute and perfect vandalism, you guys make such great collaborations.
Pffft - I love that word it says sooooo much.
This is totally adorable

Silke said...

I don't know what's more amuzing, Bella, the wonderfully, brilliantly altered art or the ensuing comments. You had me laughing out loud! Perfect!! Love, Silke

P.S. Come take a look at my profile picture - just for you and Ces...

Ces said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA! I have to go see what Silke is eating!

Bella Sinclair said...

Marie, it is absolutely my honor to show more of Ces's work when she is unable. Right now, though, I feel as sleepy as your cyclops.

Ces, dear. Thank you for pointing out my big head. Anyway, your FPOT digests things like Aristotle, while mine digests the likes of People Magazine. So your brain farts are much more potent. But mine are more stinky.

Amy, pffft pffft? Pffft!!!

ACK! Silke! You are eating in front of me again! Did you bring enough to share? WHAT IS THAT THING. AND WHY DO YOU LOOK LIKE YOU ARE ENJOYING IT SO MUCH. YOU ARE EVILLLLLLL!

Ces, bring some back for me, will ya? My head is too big to travel.

Arija said...

Chuckle, chuckle, great melding of styles, tee hee hee...

Draffin Bears said...

Love this little Pffft piece of Artwork Bella.
You and Ces are so very clever and love that your both different styles have made for a fun little drawing.
This made me smile.

Enjoy your weekend

Ces said...


There you go again. Pretending to be an airhead when it's all Paynes grey matter that has not been adulterated by lead and cadmium barium!


Silke is eating a hamburger from the Pink Pig. I have seen billboards for that restaurant on our travel to South Carolina and North Carolina. Next time I will tell the Viking to stop so I can have a picture taken like Silke's, just for you and her.

TattingChic said...

HA HA HA! Bella, you make me chuckle so hard, LOL! You are funny, friend. A "face fart" HA HA HA!

Ha ha ha... my word verification right now is "Poroma" is that the scent of a face fart? The aroma? "PORE-oma"

Oh, it seemed funny until I wrote it, LOL!

~TattingChic ♥

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

Now this is the way you start off the week. Haha ha ha ha ha!!!
Love you guys

Edrian Thomidis said...

You guys are too funny!

I love the last two drawings, but I absolutely adore the sunflower piece. Maybe because I love sunflowers, or maybe because there's a sense of hope and optimism. I found it very touching.

Wishing you a great week!

Edrian | view my blog

Bella Sinclair said...

Arija, it was a happy mind meld.

And Carolyn, you have such a lovely smile, too.

Ces, I believe all the lead and cadmium barium has contributed positively to your creativity. N'est-ce pas?


No, Linda, YOU so fuuuuunny!

Gabriele, I thank you and your lovely shovel.

Hello, Voz. What are you doing here? Go back to work. NOW!

Thank you, Tammie!
And thank you, Loni! Have you met Tammie? You giggle, she chuckles. I think you two would make a great pair.

Giovanna, you are sweet. Thank you.

Owl Eng, thanks. Everyone loves a good fart joke.

Sonia, thank you so much.

Sonny! :D

Justdoodleit! :D :D

Miss V! Now who's the pb and who's the j? I like crunchy, Ces likes creamy. Which do you prefer?

Hey there, Edrian. Awww, thank you so much. And I love your new avatar. Have a great week!

Anonymous said...

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

Renee said...

What a duo.

I wonder if you thought of me yesterday all day because I was so sad. Were you sad yesterday too Bella.

Love Renee xoxo

Diana Evans said...

oh what a fun mix of two of my favorite people!!! you guys are a riot!!!

laughingwolf said...

Efoutal said...

How come I can't comment on that beautiful sunflower post? I would really love to comment on it. Thanks.

Tomás Serrano said...

Good combination, he, he. And thanks for your funny comment.

Janine said...

Dear Bella, thank you so much for your lovely comment.
No matter how many Pffff- days we might have, sometimes we can swimm in sunshine.
I love this painting so much.
You surely bring sunshine in other peoples live.
Have a sunny, sunny week

Nina Crittenden said...

Good one!

Manon Doyle said...

Bella.... this cracked me up!! Love it!

yoon see said...

This is really cool!

Jenn R said...

I just saw your note on my blog Bella... you are such a sweetheart. I check your blog everyday to see what tasty surprises you may have. I'm never disappointed when I see your charming, adorable characters and cute writing.

Jenn R xo

Björnik said...

How come I missed commenting on this beautiful collaboration! You blended well with Ces's beautiful pen and ink!

If you vandalize this way Bella, then my walls are all yours. I would like to be surrounded with Little Bellas.:)

Silver said...

Brain fart?

Now that's creativity in creating both art and terminology.

Adam would have benefitted much from you when he had to think of a name for everything ..


Bella Sinclair said...

Mel, thank you.

Vanessa Jelly. Mmmmmm! You sugar mama!

Dear Renee. Something was definitely off yesterday.

Quick, Diana! Call the riot police!

Thank you, Mr. Wolf.

Efoutal, I had to save the world from imminent destruction. A comment comment count of 100 would have triggered a blog implosion.

Hello, Tomas. Thank you!

Aww, Janine, you are sweet. I have my extra dark sunglasses this week, so I am prepared.

Jenn, a brain fart. Inhale.

Haha, Nina. Ces is the good one. I am the bad one.

Hi, Manon. Ces is a good sport, no?

Oh, dear Yoon See. Thank you. And hello!

Jenn R, thank you. I can't guarantee that everything you see here will taste good. Or be in good taste.

Knock knock, Björnik. Let me in. I've come to scribblez on your wallz.

Haha, Silver. I'm not sure if that would have been a benefit or a corruption.

serline said...

Thank you for the comment. Your drawings are fantastic! I'll be back soon...

Dusik said...

hey Bella! Thank you for stopping by!

yes, the house looks very cute, and it is bigger then it looks from outside, thanx to backsplit.
there are so many problems though!
but "we shall overcome some day" :)

Baino said...

WAAAAHAHAHAHA to use your vernacular! She looks proper grumpy our Cesicle

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

I was thinking that maybe you and Ces and the girls could just magically come to NY to be with me he he he! THIS WOULD MAKE MY LITTLE HEART SO HAPPY!! I would love to come to Cally! We have to see where this will take us anyway, so I may be coming to both Cally and Texas he he he! Love you girly Hugs till you're purple!

Ces said...

I love that little girl with the big head. She looks so full of mischief yet so tender. I just love her!

Bella Sinclair said...

Serline, thank you. I'll be waiting for your return. And can you bring me back a muffin? Thanks.

Dusik! Backsplit? Sounds painful, but I'm sure it's wonderful. Yes, little by little, you shall overcome.

Baino, WAHAHAHAHA! Cesicle rhymes with....

Uber V, I am beyond purple! Well, if you don't come to me, I will try to come to you next summer. Ya?

Sister Ces, a filet mignon is tender.

Ces said...

Uh! Uh! May I go next summer too? I won't say anything. I'll just listen and watch you two.

Patricia said...

Ha ha ha, you are a nice couple:)


Eric Barclay said...

I love this.

Cheryl Lynn said...

This has to be one of the best collaborations I've seen in a long time. What facial expression on the little one. I love her tongue. She has personified the way I feel when I have to leave the house for work when I'd much rather be drawing and writing at home.

Love you both. BRAVO!
