Carlos Ramirez, an Oakland-based artist. It exploded briefly as cool-face, which was different from troll-face since it faced the other way. It tried to signify you knew you had been a piece of crap, while troll-face said you were a piece of crap. Eventually though, the first troll-face out grew it along with problem, leading to a new era of internet trolls and web-comics. The comic itself seems to have peaked on the internet during 2012, although it occasionally makes a comeback for brief amounts of time. Although Whynne at first wanted to be credited widely for the face, he has recognized that it's a lost cause. Many people still claim to have made the troll-face though, but he's the one and only verified person with proof that he made it. And that's it for today folks. I was going to post some more of these facts, but I saw how long the page was getting, so until next time with Randomosity! Did you like this post? Do you think I should do more of them?
