Fully Blown Art Fish by zomboyarts is my favorite Threadless print this week. It’s a clever design, replacing the spikes of a pufferfish with the sharpened points of a rainbow of colored pencils. The unexpected injection of vibrant colors feels fun and exciting in this context, and the joyous expression of the fish (with his shining eyes and goofy grin) adds to the amusement. There’s also some impressive draftsmanship on display, with the pencils displayed at convincing angles and thin lines helping to give the round shape and fins texture and dimension. Great work, and a theme that will especially resonate with artists.
