We are all so individual and different, we come from different cultures and backgrounds, yet we find ourselves in funny circumstances that seem to be exactly the same.
Life is full of challenges and surprises but the best you can do in the most ridiculous and obscure situations is to laugh at them! Out of 7 billion people in the world, there are lots who are on the same page and can totally relate to your experiences and laugh at them together. This is what … artist Bella Sriwantana is counting on by sharing quirky comics about her daily life. She opens up about her ups and downs, common girl struggles, and relationships with a great deal of self-irony and humor.
Bella invites her audiences to the honest behind-the-scenes of her romantic relationship. She openly shares the intimate and truthful part of the relationship that is often left behind closed doors. And the best part – her Belgian boyfriend actually doesn’t mind when she shares snippets of their personal life. “Luckily, my boyfriend is very supportive of me and my passion. He knows how much creating art means to me so he’s totally cool about it. We are very happy that other couples can also relate to some of our fun moments.”
Currently almost at 4k followers, Bella has been quickly charming people and drawing smiles on their faces by sharing true and often hilarious events. It’s becoming a supportive community that can share daily challenges and experiences.
“I personally feel that when I know my comics can make someone smile, it makes it all worth it. I want to share the joy with other people and social media is a great platform to do it. In the beginning, I never expected that anybody would enjoy my comics at all because they are personal to me. But now it’s overwhelming to receive a lot of wonderful feedback from the audience who can relate to my comics and I really appreciate this positive energy they gave me. I cannot thank them enough,” – says the artist.
