You should never be ashamed of your tears. Don’t hold them back—cry, if you want to. That’s the message that artist Tum Natakorn Ulit from Bangkok wanted to spread with his newest bittersweet, poignant, and beautiful comic about a boy who can’t cry and whose tears start filling up his head.

The artist told Bored Panda that his latest ‘cry if you want to’ comic was inspired by a water balloon. “I see it as a thing that is sometimes fragile but sometimes powerful.
