Threadless’s Our Daily Superhero

Our Daily Superhero by Alex Solis (alexmdc) is my favorite Threadless print this week, although it’s also the only new print this week (owing to a sale and larger than average selection of new prints last week). It’s a very strong concept, turning the falling sheets of a toilet paper roll into a superhero’s cape. There’s an immediate gross-out reaction in the viewer, but thankfully the art doesn’t lean into this and instead focuses on making the paper as heroic as possible. To that end, the roll has bright, determined eyes, strikes a pose like Superman taking flight, and even sports a snazzy pair of bright red boots. Very well done, and I expect it’s an image that will haunt me in the future when I see a toilet roll with the paper pointed towards the back.

Threadless prints new shirts every week, chosen from the designs submitted by and voted on by site members. Most winners earn $1 to $7 per item sold.
