As it turns out, emojis aren’t just for communications anymore — they can be used to create works of art.
Rapper Yung Jake created a handful of celebrity portraits using Emoji.ink, a website that lets you click and drag emojis to make a picture. When asked why he chose emojis to create his artwork, he said it was because “everyone likes emojis,” according to CNET.
