Fun Link Friday: Ukiyo-e Memes

Being tethered to our computers for the last year, it seems like 2020 was also the year of the meme. Whether just trying to alleviate our anxieties and stresses or calling out poor behavior on the part of public figures, memes have been powerful and ubiquitous forms of engagement. So why not take it a step further?

Memes of the Floating World has recently brought to life your favorite internet staples, digitally styled after early modern Japanese woodblock prints. Thinking all the time about Long Cat? The wary eyes of doge? There’s probably something for you on the site, and hopefully more will be added.

Happy Friday!
