Obsessing Over Internet Culture- Kirby

Some may argue there isn’t such thing as “internet culture” because it does not manifest itself in a physical place.  I beg to differ.  If you’ve ever seen a website like 9gag or reddit, you know that people all over the world come together and create things that already have established meanings.  Though I’m pretty much just talking about memes, I decided I wanted to create my own sort of internet culture.  I’m not sure what I’m going to call them yet, or what they even try to convey.  Here they are, modeled after the cute video game character Kirby, my internet.. things.
