This time, get to know one of the best fan artist in Buddy community! Under Sowon's Birthday Project highlight is one of great fan artist, @giraffesojung who designed the charity wreath banner for Sowon!




Q. GFSquad community are very glad to know you. We are thankful you accepted our offer to feature your masterpiece that is dedicated for GFriend Sowon. You really impressed us as well with Buddies. How do you feel about it?
I feel super happy! Honestly I never thought I'd get an opportunity to do something like this :)




Q. You’re a very professional artist! What do you do in personal or other interests besides GFriend? Tell us more about yourself!

Can't really call myself professional yet lol but i am aiming to be one and is still in the process of learning. Besides drawing i like playing the guitar and learning new songs~


Q. By doing artworks of GFriend and as a professional artist, first of all how did you became fan of GFriend? When it was all started?

This is going to be a bit long haha but it's all thanks to my older sister. She showed me pictures of them during their predebut and I was an idiot and was really judgemental bc i didnt really like them at first just because. 2016 came and she showed me a video of them again and i started getting curious because they were hella funny and when i watched their glass bead dance practice i was left in awe they were just so sooo amazing. that moment, i fell in love with gfriend :)



Q. As a Buddy, are there other things like hobbies or interests that you passionately do (or wanted to do in the future) in supporting GFriend?

I'd really very much like to compile my fanarts and make a comic book for them :)


Q. Being a Buddy has an unconditional love to all members but if you will choose one/pair favourite member that you loved the most, who and why?

Although i bias sowon and yuju's my bias wrecker i really genuinely love them all equally. Their different personalities made me love them that way.


Q. Doing fanarts are worked in a lot of time. Giving all the efforts and preparations to be done. Where do you get inspirations in doing GFriend fan arts? What are the things that keeps you motivated to do it?

Gfriend in general. They have shared so many stories about themselves and as a group and there's still a lot to tell. And for someone who likes making comics i find it really fun to make them because their moments are always so genuine. It makes me want to let the world know how great they are.


Q. Is there a Buddy fan artist or other graphic Illustrators outside the fandom that you impressed with? Can you name some of them!

JellyWing is a Taeyeon fanartist. Ever since I got into kpop ive always looked up to his works. I also like Sketchshark because she makes the craziest drawings of thighs/legs and they're all amazing.



Q. If you will choose an era (From all the comeback album concept) that you like the most from GFriend, certainly what era and songs from that album that is your favourite?  

Love Whisper era. I really love Falling Asleep Again. Although Hear the Wind Sing and Love in the Air are my top faves, Falling Asleep Again makes me feel light and in love for some reason especially during Yujuna's chorus parts. Damn cheesy lol



Q. Is there any memorable moment you experienced or unforgettable happenings from GFriend that make you happy as a Buddy?

My first few months as a fan and my illustration was used as a message book cover by a Korean fanbase for Sowon's birthday. that was so unexpected and it was my first big gig as a fan and a fanartist :)


Q. Lastly, do you have message to aspiring Buddies, to all beginners or wanted to pursue being a Buddy fanartist in the future

Just keep drawing! Don't stop. You may not be able to do things the way you want them for now but you will be able to as long as you keep going. Most importantly, always remember to rest or take a break when you have to. Breathe~


Give a shout out to every Buddy!!!
