The brilliant Liza Nelson has put together the lovely EMOJI IRL. LOL Tumblr blog, featuring beautiful photographs of emojis in real life. Above, the Moustache emoji, so far my all time favourite. It appears here thanks to the direct permission of the artist. Thanks, Liza!

EMOJIS MEAN EVERYTHING AND THEY MEAN NOTHING AT THE SAME TIME. THEY'RE COMPLETELY PERSONAL AND COMPLETETLY UNIVERSAL. THEY'RE REALLY QUITE STUPID. AND THEY'RE THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO OUR GENERATION. THEY DESERVE TO BE OBSERVED AND WORSHIPPED INDIVIDUALLY. BY FINDING, POSING AND SCULPTING EMOJIS IN REAL LIFE I'VE CREATED A SET OF SHRINES TO THE INDIVIDUAL CHARACTERS. BECAUSE SOMEBODY HAD TO DO IT.
