Oh cutest cankles ever!!! Adorable, yet bordering on snail abuse by withholding of food. I love Speedy's little mouth. You are The Best. P.S. Where is your ETSY? I need to shop.**kisskiss** Deb
haha, yes, he does look desperately hungry! Poor thing :) Love the detail of the paint jars.
heehee, go, Swifty go! Well, at least there will be plenty of time to enjoy the scenery. I'd love to be enjoying a warm, sunny day right about now. I appreciate the detail of the fine shell decorating! Maybe they can win for best shell art?
hehe, it´s my friend!!! He will win sometime.
Wonderful work! All of it!
Hihi hi, Speedy is so super cute.Yout entrys for IF are the best.Bella, do you illustrate books, or do you sell your illustrations or prints. I could imagine your beautiful drawings on childrens T-shirt on blankets on allmost everything.You are a genius!HA, i just read Deborahs comment "Where is your etsy?"Two women, one thought!Have a great weekendJanine
Je suis amusée en regardant votre adorable escargot... La gourmandise le perdra!!!Votre adorable personnage a adopté la tactique de l'âne! Son maître pour le faire avancer avait accroché une carotte au bout d'une branche semblable à votre tomate...Je trouve votre dessin séduisant et ravissant.Gros bisous
Okay Bella, these are the people I have to drive behind when I go into town.... ;-DSwifty is darling...I'd rather be driving behind him. Because he is supposed to go slow and doesn't have a gas pedal that never gets use...;-DYou need to make a card out of this~~seriously!XXOO~~♥Anne, not moving too swiftly herself....
Sweet. The narrative is well supported by the composition. i especially like the color link between the helmet and the treat.
I especially like the shell decorations :) Since people want to buy, you should sell!
I agree with Anne! A card would be perfect for this!! xoxo
You turn something ordinary to extraordinary. You make something simple and it comes out brilliant. Your lines and curves are perfect and your colors are beautiful. You have to publish a book, a collection of your illustrations so I can admire them without going to my office and stare at my Sisterfriend wall or logging in to my pc, laptop or any other device. I want to run my fingers across your drawings and trace or follow the lines. Your drawings are outstanding because they exude with mirth and your love for life. Oh since I have not changed my mind about your drawings since the day I first saw them, and since I just love them more and more, I may have a crush on you. I think you are a goddess. I think, oh I know, I love you! I love you most. I love you more than Vee loves you and baby, she lurvs you! Did you hear that Ms. Vee? Oh, I love Vee too but I think I have to write that on her blog. Right! STOP keeping your Etsy store a sceret!!!
Where is the link to the ETSY store? I am directing my friends to your blog and there is no link.
My name is Elsa Devoreaux and I want to buy a print.
Ooops. Again.My name is Else Deverow and I want to buy a print.
Whatever! I want...where is your Etsy store link/
haha cute illustration :D
HIeHAAA....TuRBooo!Brilliant, formidable!!Love it :-) x
humor combined with art... nothing better!well, maybe a good hot cuppa joe, as well :D
Go, Swifty, go!!
Outstanding!!!! Very clever!
It's perfection! This'll have me giggling all day. So sweet and funny!
haha lovely as always my friend ♥
I love Swifty I hope he gets to eat his tomato at the end of his ride.Nice paint job too Swifty has rockin STYLE.
A snail in a different light, very nice xoxo
I just love the expressions here! Poor snail has no idea he has a tripped out shell and frustrated rider. I agree that this would make an hysterical card. Belated birthday maybe? It's genius!
love it Bella, leave it to you to come up with something so cute and creative for Reverse. Love the paint jars and the snails "paint job"
That is the scariest looking snail yet... So cute - you know I just adore your sense of humor! And your gorgeous illustrations!! Much love, dear friend!! Silke
Swifty heeheehee! He's really going for that tomato! I hope the snail jockey doesn't have an appointment to keep!Just precious! :)
Gee I crush any snail in my garden but somehow feel sorry for that snail with all those nials in him. Great illustration
yes bella...where is your etsy?? your paintings belong there, they are so fantasticaly wonderous!! give the snail the tomato!
I like the paint job on the snail.
ooooooooooooookay this is awesome. I love it! The violence of the dandelion shattering to a slugs pace is great. Colors, composition. All of it is fantastic.
Oh cosh, you are so darned clever, Bella!! I love this. And that exasperated expression is priceless! Yes, snails and tomatoes!! Right on, girl..you know your creatures! Big hugs to you Bella, for always, always putting a smile on my face! : )
That feels just the way I seem to be going at present, backwards.You have put your on the nub of my predicament, and only you can put it quite so eloquently dearest Bella.At least this way I cam raise a watery smile about it all.Hugs and Blessings oh perceptive sisterfriend.
HahaHaHa Ha aha ahahaha! Oh my goodness you are hilarious Bella Sinclair! Truly you are. This is hilarious and just what I needed this morning. How fabulous. Come on Swifty giddy up boy! He is a beautiful snail car isn't he?? Oh take a look at that face on the both of them he he he he!
oh, bless dear swifty& this tomato giving, begging rider!i love those circles of yummy red...please know as i look at your art, that there's another red shape, of my heart!(i know it's soooo cornbally, but TRUE!!). xoxox
Hahaha love the comments with the illo!! Love it when illustrators have a sens of humour!! Very sweet characters.
I am cracking up at the crash helmet! LOL! Hope springs eternal. :) Hee hee! You are so funny. Those teeth - hahaha! Hey, I had a thought: WHERE IS YOUR ETSY STORE? How am I supposed to indulge my impulse buying spree if you don't have a cute button on your blog that I can push over and over? Hmmm? xoxo! PamPS My vert word is kopping as in "Pam is kopping there will be an etsy button soon." :) Or even "Pam is not kopping very well with no etsy button to push." Ok, I will leave now.

OMGolly!! Love the helmet! And the look of exasperation, and the painted shell! Who knew snails love tomatoes??
You know, your blog looks beautiful at the Apple Store!!!
That snail has the sweetest paint job ever. Who cares how fast you can go when you look that awesome?I love the body language of the disgruntled rider - it is so well done the emotion emanates off the page - er, screen!
Hahahahahah! I have never read a comment with so many "bestfriend" words! HAHAHAHAHHA! Isn't that lovely young witch adorable? I was thinking about her today and wondered how I can render her in ink. Oh yes. Lots of black! I did have good hair day today! Thank you.
Hahahaha! You have such a kooky and delightful sense of humor! I was going to say nutty, but that is reserved for Ces. I love your illustrations Bella... so full of life and fun! .... and you add such delicious little details. mmmmmm! I savor every morsel of your posts and always come back for more. Ok... so I got here on the next day after you posted and you already have 50 comments! I think I can make a few side bucks starting a Bella fan club :o)
just thought you should know I am still laughing at your 'living snowballs' comment.......teeeeee heeeeeeee haaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaSending you and swifty big fluffy hugs with ooodles of living snowballs mixed inx
ha ha so funny! adorable. Very smart name! Your humor is showing again! hee hee Great one! Poor snail:) Love it! :D
What an inspiration you are!
Hheh I asdmit to starting giggling out line by the time I got t the phrase "not the best choice". Now I have that happy hormonal flush that men of a certain age get when confronted by a racing snail.... Let me go and have a look at the picture again, I need a dose of 'imiantil' actually... :)Oh no I got it worng. Now I need a dose of 'cranizes' - but I think I already have those...
Well you are gifted Bella. You know that little touch of the paint pots, the paint job on the side is exquisite, the whole scenario of the apple before the donkey :) But the teeth on the snail make me want to check my digits :) :)see you !!(lucky there were twelve like always)
thank you for the chuckle dear Bella! when I saw the snail, i said out loud "Bella! I drew a snail last week too!" but I will not post it until Sat. because of the poem that goes with it. we are thinking snails at the same time, i can only smile at that! Happy week to you.
I love it!Ahahah!Too funny:)
great blog! I love the wallpaper!
Ah, you know the proverb of the hare & the tortoise . . .Love the pattern on his shell, such a wonderful touch.
I'd hire someone to chase that snail with a full saltshaker, that would get his slow butt in gear.Hey, I really like that dandelion snagged on the shell, that's cool. Those kind of details can really raise the bar on the competition. Bravo.
you crack me up with your sense of humor - and I'm digging the snail's expression :)
Forgot to ask: have you heard of Heinrich Kley? 1860s-1940s. He did an amazing pen and ink of a snail race. There's at least two books out of his brilliant drawings.
the face on that snail.Absolutely.Priceless.
Lovely Bella! :)
sometimes, scott seems like he's driving at a snail's pace and i say that very thing to him. he also really loves tomatoes! seriously! enjoy your weekend! xo, c
Fantastic! Love the name, "Swifty' !
Thank you Bella, romantic bone in my body.... heh. Oh maybe, copme to think of it last time I want to the GP, he was looking at me a little oddly when the X rays came back, :)he told me I was looking a little 'wornso' actually .Thanks so much for your kind advice too. :)avagoodweegend !
Okay........ I'm crying.I Love you so much.....I love you girlyBig sloppy hugs to you.V
wow beautiful illo, Bella! i can't help but keep looking and admiring it though i feel sorry for the snail
Another brilliant concept for this weeks theme. Wonderful illustration!!!Have a nice weekend, Bella!
Oh she said to him "What a beak!"HAHAHAHAHHAHA! I love your neck. It is soooooo long!Ooooooh the word verif is ningling. I thought it said niggling!
Oh my gosh, I don't know where you find all this cuteness! Their expressions are absolutely perfect! :)
Awww, that is a seriously adorable little drawing. It somehow reminds me of the original Strawberry Shortcake, with their caterpillar....
Heisann!I can imagine the boy's frustration ;:OD)Nice work!
That is NOT a happy snail, Bella. I daresay the situation is hopeless, much like Florida drivers. :)The crash helmet made me laugh out loud!(Me first? OK. First kiss: Gerald R. 11 years old, and behind the band shell. Really gross.)
Oh this is so amazing and you are so fresh!!I love that about you!
Just stopping by to say thank you for all your wonderfully supportive and always fun comments! You are the best!! TSUP!!! Love, Silke
First thing I thought of when I saw this was "Speed Racer" do you remember that cartoon? Love this illustration!!
Bella, I am so excited about your project. I hope we all get to see it. I can't wait. Please keep me posted on it. Please, please, please!!!
Swifty go! Ketchup with that tomato ;)
