The Puerto Rican cartoonist Mela Pabón opens an unconventional office in EL PAÍS. In his mailbox he will invite readers to send him their respective stories during the week: small crises or those derived from unnecessary conflicts that have arisen during the pandemic. Some stories will be drawn and published to combat confinement and pandemic boredom.
The mailbox of the Checkinmela account, Dear Mela, admit the problems that friends have grown tired of hearing. Send your little crises to [email protected] The humorous Instagram astrologer illustrating comedy horoscopes will use them as inspiration for her next posts. “We cannot answer all of them, but at least, we read them,” says the artist, who insists that her office is not a substitute for professional help and is based on the opinion of someone “who also shits it.”
Pabón, better known as Madame Mela on the internet, opened her account to vent after Hurricane María that hit Puerto Rico in 2017. There she began to write “the horoscope I needed at that time”, based on the signs of the zodiac with simple illustrations. His humorous advice is followed by more than 919,000 people on the web.
