I remember when I was in college, a friend of mine was taking German, grudgingly, and when we would go to the library to study, he liked to just put together random words in German to stave off the boredom. My favorite was "birthdaysurprisepotato" - I don't remember how you say that in German, but I can assure you it was hysterical, and slightly frightening, as German can be.

So it was a great surprisepotato to me to find the melonentierchen hashtag on Instagram. This is Pepita Hasenkeks' challenge to "watermelonize" ALL THE THINGS and the things people have come up with are just hilarious.

I could not resist playing along with a watermelon fox for Alba Sevadilla's challenge on Splitcoast.

Seriously - how cute is that fox as a watermelon??

Watermelon Fox by Understand Blue

First I stamped him in Smoky Slate just to get the shape down for my coloring - that's my fave no-line coloring ink because it's neutral, but sort of creates its own shading. Then I no-line colored him with Copic Markers, and stamped his face in Versafine, and then I drew the seeds with a Project Line pen to complete his little watermelon head.

He's proud of who he is, even though he isn't like all the other foxes. ESPECIALLY because he isn't like all the other foxes.

I'm proud of who he is too. :)
