9 emoji masterpieces that’ll make your texts look boring

How did we communicate before emojis? HOW?!

LAST WEEK IT was announced that iPhone users will soon be enjoying 250 new emoji icons, to be added in July. 

The new additions include a bed, a floppy disk (WHY?), a skull and crossbones, a Vulcan Salute and most excitingly, a middle finger emoji. There is still no cheese emoji, but we live in hope.

Anything that helps us better express our complicated, complicated feelings is most welcome, and anything that furthers the cause of emoji art even more so.

Yes, art. Emojis are art now.

These people have a lot of time on their hands. BUT WE LOVE THEM FOR IT. Go forth and create with your new emojis, artists.
