Emo いも

Daughter likes to draw characters. One day she was sketching ideas on the white board and we began playfully thinking of different ideas and possible scenarios. What kind of personality would a teabag character have? What if it’s wet? What about a bean sprout (moyashi)? And then we got to the Japanese sweet potato, imo. A homonym of “emo”, we were delighted with the play of language/translation and we came up with a comic strip! Hopefully more to come.
