Threadless’s Coffee Rescue

Coffee Rescue by tobefonseca is my favorite Threadless print this week. The color palette caught my eye on this one, with its refreshing green pairing well with the coffee’s natural browns. It feels fresh and renewing as a garden because of its plant-like colors. The illustration style is especially good at capturing the emotions of these characters, with the contented, slumbering sloth in direct conflict with the absolute panic of the racing coffee cups, intent on reviving their sleepy pal as soon as possible. The best detail is the SOS shout of the coffee mug, which adds in an extra joke by replacing the O in SOS with a coffee bean. Great work, and very relatable to anyone who doesn’t truly wake up until they’ve had their caffeine.
