Facial Expressions Meme

Back in 2007, when I was an active DeviantArt member, I filled every art meme that appeared on my screen. Although a meme was and still is a concept that goes viral, the meaning of it has changed through the years. When I first heard about it, in the art community it meant: questionnaire. There were tons of them. For every fandom there was a meme to fill with drawings. It was great way to get to know other people, share the things you love and practice. And today, after many years (I’ve just checked… my last meme is from 2010!) I’ve found one in tumblr that I couldn’t say no to.

0357 Essential Expressions

Allá en el 2007, cuando era un miembro activo de Deviantart, rellenaba todo meme artístico que aparecía en mi pantalla. Aunque mantiene su carácter viral, el significado de la palabra meme ha ido cambiando a lo largo de los años. Por aquel entonces, cuando la escuché por primera vez, se usaba para refererirse a un cuestionario. En DeviantArt había centenares de ellos. Uno o varios por fandoms y muchos referentes a retos artísticos y demás. Era una forma genial de conocer a gente con tus mismos gustos y encima practicar con el dibujo. Y hoy, después de muchos años (¡Acabo de comprobar que mi último meme es del 2010!), me he topado con uno en tumblr que no he podido dejar pasar.
