YUNG JAKE'S CELEBRITY EMOJI PORTRAITS
If you’re not already familiar with Yung Jake – check out our sms interview with him here – he is a multitalented rapper AND (now emoji) portrait artist. Trends in fashion and technology are recurring themes in his work, as evident in his videos Hurricane Trip, Cut Offs and She Don’t Need to Know (Produced by Larry David, who’s apparently a recurring theme too.) Now Yung Jake is onto his latest trendy tech art endeavor, creating portraits out of emojis with an emoji paintbrush tool called emoji.ink. (Warning: It’s overwhelming.) He releases the portraits on his twitter, and he’s even taking requests. Follow him to see who’s next!
