According to Wikipedia, “Emoji are the ideograms or smileys used in Japanese electronic messages and Web pages, the use of which is spreading outside Japan. Originally meaning pictograph, the word emoji literally means “picture” (e) + “character” (moji). The characters are used much like ASCII emoticons or kaomoji, but a wider range is provided, and the icons are standardized and built into the handsets.”
A friend of mine sent me a link to the Emoji Mosaic online app where anyone can take a photo and convert it into a work of art made entirely from emoji.
I took this photo of a shipping container…
…and turned it into this image.
This app is a relaxing way to take a 5 minute break.
