Bell's work was distinguished by the fact that the subject matter is depicted in a scale as much as ten times life size. The colors are the clearest and most vibrant that can be achieved. The subjects he depicted were primarily of vintage toys, gumball machines, dolls, and action figures. Bell sought to bring pictorial majesty and wonder to the mundane.
