Animating Emojis

Another Unicode Adventure


This might become a yearly tradition, even though so far it only happened once before. Last year I tampered with Neutral Face.

This year it is all about monkeys. Our main character is the see no evil monkey. According to Emojipedia, 🙈 is …

[…] called Mizaru (Japanese for “see not”), one of the Three Wise Monkeys. Depicted as the brown 🐵 Monkey Face with tan or pinkish hands covering its eyes.

It appears as if the monkey is playing peekaboo. Also, I put the monkey behind a wall (that looks a lot like the one from Super Mario), but I am not sure if this was a good idea, because depending on the emoji set on your operating system, the wall might be covering too little or too much.

Peekaboo! I see you!
