Artist Yung Jake Turns 20,000 Emojis Into Amazing Lifelike Celeb Portraits

Yung Jake from Los Angeles, California, USA, spends between 30 minutes and a whole week turning emojis in facial details – morphing headphones into hairstyles and eggplants into expressions.

The artist, real name Jake Patterson, has been creating the unusual pieces for two years making everyone from Willow Smith, Kanye and Kim Kardashian West to Seinfeld and The Powerpuff Girls. To create the portraits, he uses an image of the celebrity and then compiles emojis based on colour and subject matter to created detailed imitations of their face and hair.
