We may take the ease of using emoticons in our daily (online) conversations for granted; however, the lives of these emoticons are far more intense than I ever anticipated. Illustrator Miss Tal brought the stories of our emotion-filled friends to life with her series of animated emoticon cartoons.

The emoticon series by Miss Tal shows the emoticons in love, breaking up, crying, throwing up, getting pregnant, and eventually having a child.

Implications - These hilarious and dramatic cartoons give a whole new context to simple online convos. Never again will you use that shy smiley without being reminded of Miss Tal's soap opera emoticons. Share Miss Tal's emoticon stories with friends and family; they definitely appeal to the emotions of all. Stats for Emoticon Love Stories Trending: Older & Mild
