Emoji-Only Portraits of Pop Culture Stars

Emoji is having another big moment. From the creation of Emojli — an emoji-only messenger app that lets you talk in strings of hearts, sparkly stars, and animated poop — to the website emoji.ink, which allows you to draw stuff using the 722 emoji available, the Unicode symbols aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Enter rapper and net artist Yung Jake, who recently created a series of pop culture-inspired emoji portraits of artists like Miley Cyrus (something just feels so right about Miley’s maniacal smile and those sobbing ringlets of hair) and icons such as Jerry Seinfeld — which we learned about on Co.Design. Take a closer look at Jake’s emoji choices, all totally on point, below.
