We are continuing our iKON fan artist series and with absolute pleasure I get to present to you a fellow DoubleB trash and probably a closeted fujoshi, Yoye of @Yo_BiBob. I have been following Yoye for quite some time and her art always brings smile to my face and often makes me giggle.
The crucial question first. How did you become an iKONIC ?
I asked a friend to give me something to watch. Among other things she recommended WIN and Mix n Match. At that time I was not into kpop, but my friends kept talking about it and I thought survivals were interesting, so I gave it a try. After watching it, I found myself liking iKON and I searched about them. I was upset that hadn’t yet debuted at that time. I searched for updates and found it on twitter. I waited for their debut but didn’t plan to join the fandom, Ii was just lurking around. But idk how, I ended up an iKONIC and join the fandom. It’s the first fandom that I joined. hhhhh.
What is your favorite iKON song or a moment?
My first fav iKON song is SINOSIJAK SHOWTIME!! But now i have too many fav songs hhhh. It’s hard to choose a moment. My fav moment is every time iKON performs on stage all sweaty and singing with passion, all crazy smiles, and hyped up doing adlibs to enliven the stage.
iKON on stage is wild! How did you become an iKON fanartist ?
I have this drawing account where I post random drawings. After watching WIN i started drawing Bobby then B.I then DoubleB then i keep drawing only DoubleB to the point i change my username into @yo_BiBob which means Yoye draws B.I BOBBY. After drawing DoubleB for quite long, I gathered some confidence to draw the other members. Then I started to draw iKON.
As a DoubleB trash myself I applaud your choice of subject. Is art something you do as a hobby or are you a professional artist?
I am a hobbyist artist. Not a professional at all. XD. I love to draw since I was a kid. I used to draw girls, clothes, animals and food when I was a kid, but now i only draw men. LOL.
Good choice! But, tell me what inspires your fan art?
Love. I rarely draw something that I hate, but i drew a chibi YG on a swing once. I also draw human beings who are aesthetically pleasing to my eyes. Also warm or cute relationships (family, lovers, bros, or sis and bro), cute stuff, cool stuff, bunny smile, plump lips, or jawline XD. Also talking with my iKONIC friends gives me ideas or sometimes I just draw their creative ideas.
Although I already know an answer to this question, I am going to ask anyway. Is there any particular member, ship or a theme you love to draw?
I am a DoubleB trash. I always start everything in my art with DoubleB. I’m trying hard to draw them clean okay. it’s Really hard. XD. For short comic i love a cute but ridiculous theme. We call it receh.
That was pretty hilarious! What is your fav technique/medium to work in?
I love my traditional art more than my digital. Digital gives me hard times. For traditional art I’m using watercolor (Sakura Koi) and Color pencils (Polycromos). For digital I’m using Paint tool Sai and a wacom Pen tablet.
As a fan artist you get a lot of reactions and feedback for your work from other iKONICS. Was there anything someone said that stayed with you as special?
I really love and appreciate all the encouraging comments. Since I’m kind of depressed with my art style, I really need those encouraging comments ahahah I sound so desperate. I love iKON and I love to draw. I show them my love through my drawing since I’m no good with words also i typo a lot. XD So it really make me happy when people like my fan art and support it.
A picture is worth a thousand words. And your art is very expressive so we can feel your love for them through it. Is there any particular illustration or comic you drew that is special to you?
That one drawing of Hanbin smiling with eye patch.. I cried a little while drawing it. A lil bit dramatic :v it’s kinda embarrassing to admit. ahahahahahahahhahahahhahahashut.
Awww! That is actually really sweet. Was your art ever used without your permission?
It was once. Maybe it was partially my fault because I didn’t write anything on my bio about using them without permission.
Your art has reached iKON members or people close to them, thus giving you the satisfaction of reaching your idol in a way most of fans can only dream off. How did that make you feel?
I was really happy. I hope the boys can see how much they are inspiring me and many other iKONICS out there :”
Have you ever thought of selling your art?
I’m starting to do it. I usually sell it on my IG account only, since I have problem managing things XD. For now I only sell stuff to local iKONICS. I’m still new at this thing and don’t know much about international shipping and payment.
Where can we enjoy your art?
My handle on twitter is @Yo_BiBob.
This was the amazing @Yo_BiBob! Make sure to follow us because there is more to come! Now enjoy more of Yoye’s art and great sense of humor.
