Threadless’s Summer Vibes Avocado

The Threadless catalog isn’t showing any new designs this week, so instead I’ll be highlighting a favorite design from recently added Artist Shops pieces.

Summer Vibes Avocado by olipopart is one of a series of Summer Vibes designs, each showing food as a pool float and relaxing snack. It’s a great concept because it captures the laid-back feel of summer dining, and also creates a scenario where viewers identify with the lazing morsels. The avocado’s round pit gives him a nice potbelly, while his sunglasses balance out his form and add a bit of personality. Texture is an aspect of the artwork that really impresses, with a bumpy avocado skin that stands in contrast to the smooth interior, a craggy chip surface, and even highlights that imply light and motion on the watery background. My favorite detail, though, is the tiny air plug at the corner of the float- it’s simple, but helps the concept to read clearly.

Threadless Artist Shops are free to create, and allow artists to set their own prices on products ranging from apparel to accessories and even home decor.
