Threadless’s Apple Affirmation

Apple Affirmation by obinsun is delightfully retro. I love the big, chunky elements of the apple and how well they pair with the thick type. The characterization of the apple is unusual, but also charming. His too-big pupils flood his eyes, dwarfing his small nose and mouth. The effect is to make him seem more cautious than just cheerful, as though things could go very wrong at any moment. The massive thumbs up balances a bite mark on the apple’s other side, another moment of positive and negative reaching a tentative balance. Even the sparkly stars aren’t quite even, just slightly out of symmetry. It’s awkward, and unmistakably vintage- like a memory that isn’t quite as sunny now as it seemed when it first occurred.
