Melancholy is a winter melon. Here he is, in his corner, moping.
What is a winter melon? Well, it looks like this.
It might sound really mean, but I had a lot of fun trying to make him look as melancholic as possible. The weather’s been really grey these days, I can’t help but feel a bit blah. Making this character takes a bit of the melancholy out of me.
Winter melons are actually quite delicious, especially in soup. I actually thought of making a watermelon first, but thought a melon that’s called “winter” might convey melancholy a bit more effectively.
… look how sad…
Don’t worry folks, as sad as he is, he’s being well taken care of and has a place to live up in the type case. Maybe he’ll brighten up when the sun peeks its head out of the clouds tomorrow, it’s supposed to be a nicer day.
Take care, everyone!
