What's The '100 Faces' Meme? The Viral Redraw Trend From Twitter / X Explained

A viral art trend is sweeping Twitter / X at the moment. It's a series of redraws called the '100 faces' meme that literally has one hundred faces to draw.

The original artist's content went mega-viral and people want to flex their art skills using the template. It looks like a page out of an animator's textbook. So, where did it come from? Let's explain.

Who Created The '100 Faces' Meme?

The original artist is Twitter / X user @MagicalPouch whose watermark is visible in the meme's top left corner. What's interesting about this trend is that @MagicalPouch posted the image five years ago. For some reason, all these years later, it's still trending.

Like the name suggests, it shows a grid of 100 faces that cover almost every human expression from happiness to diabolical evilness. It's a pleasing image and feels like a poster you'd find on a dorm room wall.
