The talented artist seems to have a creative passion for fusing animals and food, however, as evidence by his Cthulian squid watermelons. Ponkichi is continuing that artistic trend with a new series the illustrator says is an effort to get young children to like vegetables. Each day, Ponkichi posts a new illustration that charmingly meshes adorable animals and vegetables into "fairies". 子供が少しでも野菜が好きになる作品として。おやさい妖精さんは週に１キャラずつ描いて、こちらのアカウントで毎週日曜の朝にアップしています。 また見たいなと思っていただければ ぜひフォローしてください🌱 pic.twitter.com/ciZrCyYD2s— ぽん吉🌱おやさい妖精さん書籍化決定10月末発売予定🌱 (@PonkichiM) August 4, 2020 While it may sound like an odd combination at first, Ponkichi is able to blend qualities of the animals and veggies into an adorably fantastical aesthetic (along with some name puns such as "Wasa-beaver".
