For those with a creative mind, everything has the potential to become more than it is… even an ice cube! CubeMelt is a series of comics created by a Singapore-based illustrator and animation director, Ven Wong, that follow the life of a cute and innocent ice cube. Since its beginning in 2016, CubeMelt has amassed quite the following on social media and even inspired a line of merchandise.

"Like all artists, I aspire to create something that the world will fall in love with. Ironically, the inspiration for CubeMelt came at the lowest point of my creative career," Wong revealed in his article here on Bored Panda two years ago.

Here are 30 new adventures of the adorable icy character in the images below.

When asked how all these comic ideas came about, the artist told Bored Panda that he always keeps two things in mind. First off, the story has to be relatable. Wong takes daily life, memes, and pop culture into consideration in order to come up with a comic that people will relate to. Secondly, it’s important to think about how the melting capability and shape of the ice cube can contribute to the story; after all, it has to in some way revolve around the main character.

Talking about his creative process, Wong says: “I don't have techniques especially for coming out with ideas. Most of the ideas are just quirks and my experience in life and sometimes with the help of my friends and fans. Whenever I have an idea, I will note it down. My brain then will start processing how to present this idea visually. I will always try to keep the comic as short as possible. To me, those comics that can convey a message within a single image are the best.”

2020 was especially eventful for CubeMelt. Wong went into development with some partners and came out with two ambitious productions. Fans of the icy hero got a 15-episode animated series called “The misAdventures of CubeMelt” as well as “CubeMelt Adventure,” a mobile game. When asked about his future aspirations, the artist said: "Like many artists out there, we all hope our creations can be seen and known by people all over the world. Seeing people loving my work gives me the strength to continue drawing."

The artist shared that before starting the series, he was eaten by self-doubt. Until one day he looked at the melting ice cubes in his drink and wondered, “what would an ice cube do with its short lifespan?” Wong describes CubeMelt as “a living ice cube with an endearing wholehearted approach to life, even with the odds stacked against him.”

Wong still faces creative block sometimes: "Coming out with new ideas for Cubemelt is my biggest challenge. Whenever I have a creative block, I will take a break, and do things I like such as reading comics, playing some games, who knows, they might give me some ideas. When that doesn't work, I will seek help from friends, family, and colleagues. More brains are better than one."

Wong is happy to have created a “champion of positivity—one who would relentlessly wave his good-natured banner of hope, innocence, and passionate pursuits to generate optimism.” These comics have had a great response from fans that brings a lot of satisfaction to the artist.
