The Green Eyed Monster (we'll call him Gem for short) was always lonely and misunderstood. He was a little emo, to say the least, but he couldn't even mope properly because he was so brightly coloured, and black depressing clothes didn't come in his size.
Gem frequently had temper tantrums and went on rampages. Everyone thought he was just greedy and envious of everyone around him - all those people who had clothes that fit and all those people who had friends. He received his name because, when he was in such a fraught state, his eyes would glow green.
One day, as he was destroying buildings, a little girl fearlessly approached him and offered him a flower. Stunned, Gem sat down (crushing a fire hydrant beneath him) and stared at the girl. The green of rage and envy faded from his eyes and, with tears welling up in his eyes, he reached out for the flower.
Gem was quite anxious as he had never had a friend before, and he wasn't quite sure how he should act.
Later that day, authorities discovered little Suzy in the street, flat as a pancake.
Actually, little Suzy and Gem became best buds. Suzy came from a rich family and had specially-fitted clothes made just for the green reptillian giant. They lived happily ever after.
Until the Japanese military came to destroy the demonic Godzilla-like beast.
Thus, my design conceptualizes green in the following ways:
1. Green is jealousy and rage, personified (or, uhh, monsterified) by Gem.
2. Green is peace and tranquility, again displayed by Gem.
3. Green is being new to something, just as Gem was new to making friends.
4. Green is nature, via the flower.
5. Green is money, via Suzy's family fortune.
1 and 5 are the only ones that rely on the story; the other three come through in the design.
