Let me give you a Melvin Written on October 24, 2011, by .

In contrast to the gluttonous goats from the last post, Melvin Goaté is a connoisseurial consumer. Rhymth! Melodies! Harmonies! MUSIC! That’s what Melvin devours, and he wants nothing more than to create music himself.

Major redesign from the previous incarnation of Mel, but I think this guy’s a bit more compelling (though, maybe that’s due to his wardrobe being conspicuously similar to my own). Thinking of doing the whole book in this style: muted watercolors with colored pencil on smooth(ish) paper.

Any thoughts?

    There have got to be some really difficult chords for a hoofed animal to play… even on a four string instrument.

    maybe he’s more of a rhythm guy.

    Nah, playing a ukulele’s easy. The really impressive thing is that full windsor knot he managed for his tie.
