The AnArt4Life writing team each chose an emoiji for this post. Here is the thinking behind their choice.

ANNE
I chose the Bee because I like to think I am building a hive full of "ideas and information about the world of art" - little pockets of "honey" for our subscribers to enjoy. I buzz about a lot collecting "nectar" to make the "honey".

JANE
I chose an elephant. This one is sweet, and itโ€™s good luck if the trunk is up (in western cultures anyway). They are wise and graceful and as the saying goes - an elephant never forgets. Canโ€™t say I live up to all of that, but I try my best.

CAROLINE
I chose a doggy as I have been surrounded by dogs of all breeds and mixes since I can remember. I learn from the doggies the skill to sniff out interesting bits and pieces from the art world and other odd snippets from rabbit holes in the hope to bring joy to all.

JULIE
I chose this particular emoji as it is very similar to my tiny, but faithful little friend, who follows me around all day. She sits patiently at my feet or on my lap whilst I research and write my posts. She knows that there will be a walk at the end of it, and is happy just to be with me.

Yes - all those little characters that you either love or hate have their own special day.

The 17th July is World Emoiji Day -

Happy Emoiji Day to all our wonderful subscribers.
