This blog is my visual-diary. That means pretty much everything I feel like sharing and is not or not only text. Up till now everything shared is mine, and it probably stays that way.


I do kind of have a website: gaborovna.com

    Hi, Ellie
    How lucky I am to be able to stumble upon your photo-diary blog and witnessing myself how those amazing-beyond-words sketches of Exo were made.
    You are trully a blessed soul for being granted with such talent.
    My name is Nina, I’m from Indonesia. I would like to ask for you permission to upload your Neverland series of Exo in my tumblr and looking forward to hearing from you.
    Once again, your sketches mesmerized me 🙂
    Thank you and keep drawing 🙂

      hi, aah, thank you so much ^ ~ ^’ im glad you are here.

      ohoh, tumblr. eeehm, i actually dont share the link on my posts.. i dont know why, i have been thinking about this why… cause it creates some misunderstanding. there are some people, like you, who find my blog first, though… the general is usually that they come in from other sources, like youtube, where i do share the tumblr link. but not here. i think i should change this habit, and share the tumblr link on my posts too.. hm.
      so they are actually already uploaded to tumblr, you dont have to do it yourself : ) you are really nice to ask it first : )
      my art blog (with all of the fanarts): http://only-elie.tumblr.com
      but .. fanarts i upload to my kpop blog first, and just reblog on this art blog: http://kpope11ie.tumblr.com/tagged/fanart

    1. bubblydiaries Post author

      thank you : )
      exo yes.
      b2uty was in the past : ) .. i have had enough of cube. they made an enemy for themselves in my person, even though i used to like b2st quite much in the past. … i used to be a cassie, and elf too, from the start i was those two : ) i like them, but i recently realised that what i have going on for exo is not even close to those two, and have never been before, even when i was “going crazy” over them. not even comparable.
      so… the conclusion, i like a lot, but im all over for exo, and i realised that : ))

      i guess you are too : P

      why you asked about b2uty? are you?

    1. bubblydiaries Post author

      thank you so much : )
      would be doing this nomination thing a bit difficult though ^ ^’ because i cant name any other blogs, since i dont really follow any, especially not here. but, im going to take the opportunity, and answer to questions later on the next week, and ask out in public : D
      thank you for liking my blog, it means a lot for me : )

    1. bubblydiaries Post author

      oh, thats a weird question : D
      im in love with Didot. … BUT! .. i could never use it in any design, even though that typeface is beyond beautiful, it never works as part of a design for me. somehow.. it just doesnt. so it remains a one-sided love. sigh~
      lately i realised i use Avenir Next or Avenir Next Condensed for everything -.-‘ im getting tired of it, but it fits things so well way too often. : D its nice, really, im just really overusing it : / .. and Adobe Caslon Pro for the classical kind of long texts, thats the other one im overusing, but i rarely have to design long texts, so i use this one a little less.
      .. i got a little too comfortable with these.
      so lately im pushing myself to use others more. as a result two more fonts came up on my “prefer to use” list: Linux Biolinum (for longer texts.its kind of classical but still isnt.. traditional with that greek classical hint in a modern kind of view : D its nice), and Fabrica (for all caps things, titles, etc). not breathless by any of them, but … they work fine.
      which is your favourite font? im curious! : D

      1. hhollens

        Thanks for this answer, so fast ! Brief ! I love a lot the calligraphy font like “Signarita Chloe” or “Jane Austen” but its so hard for me to choice a good font. The pixel or bitmap font are so cuuute ( i use a lot “ernest” for exemple ). Recently, i tested the font “TJ Evolette A” and i fell in love – Too bad it was a trial period. :s I try to do my best for the projects people ask me. Some of my clients really know what they want, but others have only small ideas. I always manage to do things like that and I know that often comes from the font that I have chosen. I love a lot your work. Sometimes, its like an inspiration. Again thank you for your reply. PS: I am a fan of your drawings. There are a few months, we spoke on tumblr. Little information last seconds.

      2. bubblydiaries Post author

        ooh, these fonts are too decorative and flashy for my taste : D … especially the calligraphy ones, i really dont like calligraphy fonts.
        i can kind of recall a username like yours on tumblr. not quite entirely sure if its this or someone else with double “h” in the name. ^ ^’ did you leave tumblr btw? : )

  12. Nicky

    Hello! I’ve been a fan of your work for a few months now and I’m always so intrigued by your beautiful drawings! I’m in college right now and the school I’m attending has one of the best art programs in the country, but I’m not majoring in art.
    I’m thinking about switching my major or double majoring, so I wanted to ask: what major did you take as a student?

    1. bubblydiaries Post author

      visual design. : )
      im still a student. i kept delaying my years, because of work or studying somewhere else, so im still stuck in uni. finishing my 3rd year.
      visual design is great. called visual communication sometimes. that is because you learn the most possible tools to create visually something. as a result you will be able to pick the best tool to use for your idea. not only drawing, or only painting, or only graphic, or only photography. whatever is the most suitable for the idea. .. also it might turn out after some time that you are better at something else than you thought in the beginning, because you never actually tried that before. you might end up at a field you didnt even expect, and it turns out you enjoy that the most.
      taking visual design gives you choice. a lot of it. i love my major and i recommend it with much enthusiasm : ) its not easy though, both physically and emotionally.

  13. ryka mae

    Hello. You’ve been my inspiration ever since I first watched your videos. You are very talented and you’re so pretty. I’m your fan 🙂 I want to have drawing skills like yours but it seems impossible ㅋㅋ I’m really excited for your next video. And may I ask who your bias is in EXO? Are there any other kpop groups that you like? I hope you can answer this. I reaalllyy loooveee youuu~ If only I could have you as my girlfriend haha jk. fighting!

    1. bubblydiaries Post author

      hello~ im glad you like what im doing : ) … heyhey, drawing is not a skill, its practice : ) practice it and you will draw like me. practice more and you will be better than i am. thats how it works. : )
      my bias are kyungsoo and luhan. ^ ^’ but all of them are precious, i think we can agree on that~ : D
      im used to be a cassie and elf. and later b2uty as well. but … things happened, things also faded, and exo bombed my existence with feelings and love i have never experienced before with any groups. not long ago i realised im only an exo fan. and keeping the memories of those other groups as something that mattered the most to me in the past. and i like to listen to shinee, vixx and bangtan sometimes, but im not a fan.
      do you like exo or any other kpop group? : )

  14. mutiabacon
