By SZ STAFF

. In GUCCIDERE

Welcome to “in Love in Five Minutes” where STAI ZITTA quickly questions some dreamy girls about the dreamy work they do! Try not to fall in love–we dare you!

 

 

Ariella Elovic is a 27 year old artist based in New York. Her highly personal and painfully relatable illustrations are inspired by her struggles with IBS and generalized “Being a Woman Syndrome“–expect sweat, blood, tears and laughs!

SZ: What’s your favorite place to draw in NYC?

 

AE: My apartment (I’m a big homebody)

 

 

 

 

SZ: In high school you wore Spanx under your pants. I wore control-top L’EGGS pantyhose every day and even slept in them because I thought I’d DIE if I felt my thighs touching. Do current teens have it easier-thanks to social media/general “wokeness” of The Youth Today? Or are we all cursed 4ever?

 

AE: I am so thankful that social media hand’t quite become a ‘thing’ yet when I was a teen. It must be so much pressure, but I’m optimistic about it! I’m seeing a really powerful trend of a wider range of voices and I like to think it will foster a more accepting and empathetic environment.

 

 

 

 

SZ: Waffles or Pancakes?

 

AE: Pancakes!

 

SZ: Vodka or gin?

 

AE: I don’t drink much because it hurts my stomach, but gin over vodka.

 

 

 

 

SZ: Is Lady Gaga’s acting career: a) annoying b) inspiring or c) both ?

 

AE: Love Lady Gaga

 

SZ: Is there any feeling better than post-poop bliss? (If so, please share)

 

AE: There is not. Truly the best feeling.

 

 

 

 

SZ: Where can we find/buy your work?

 

AE: Instagram! Select work is for sale on Society6
