Blogger, DJ, and artist Bip Ling is obsessed with emojis—they cover everything from her clothes to her Instagram posts—so it’s no surprise that she has an impressive social media following. Many of her posts feature a cute carton named Mooch and her catchphrase, “YAR”—both of which help Ling to stand out from the London It girl crowd. Here, the provocateur explains her digital presence, talks about her most popular posts, and more.

What are your favorite emojis?
When did you create your colorful characters?
My guy is called Mooch, I first designed him about 6 years ago. He is my best friend. We sometimes argue, but have had so many great times together. The word YAR, is something I’ve always said in my lingo, it’s stuck with me in my music and writing on my blog! All my friends say it too, it’s so fun. YAR!
Maximum number of daily posts:
Hhmmm, sometimes 3, sometimes 6... sometimes none because I’m working out what is next. At the moment I’ve been teasing my fans with my song “Bip Burger,” which I’m going to release very soon!
