We know you instantly think iMessage when you hear “emoji,” but it’s time to accept the fact that the little hieroglyphics that changed your texting game 4eva are taking over our real lives, too. They’re reviewing our movies, hanging on the walls of art galleries and decorating our shoes. Now you can even use them to send messages to your buds the old-fashioned, paper way with emoji greeting cards!
The cards are part of a series called “Emojinal Art” available to buy over on Redbubble (like an indie Zazzle that features artists’ merch). The designer took iconic works of art and added some very modern elements.
Artist Jeff Koons’ sculpture of Michael Jackson and his monkey Bubbles, “Michael + Bubbles” gets the emoji treatment to pretty amazing results.

Best “Get Well” card ever?
You can order any and all: $2.40 for a 4 x 6 inch card, $3.60 for a 5 x 7.5 inch card and $1.92 for a 4 x 6 inch postcard. Forget your Hallmark cards — these innovative works of modernized art will make your friends *insert clapping hands and/or thumbs up*.
