Threadless’s Nacho Thrower

Nacho Thrower by Raffiti is my favorite Threadless print this week. It’s a really nice it of cartooning, managing to convey two very different demeanors and personalities for each avocado half. The nacho thrower is all about concentration, maybe with a hint of showmanship in his raised eyebrow and extended tongue. Meanwhile, there’s a kind of nervous serenity in the avocado on the target, whose huge, closed eyes emphasize her passivity and innocence. Giving the target avocado custody of the avocado pit is a smart move, making it feel like a bullseye on that target. My favorite choice in the piece, though, is the way it uses different shades and sizes of green circles to represent the audience- it also looks a heck of a lot like guacamole, which is a great touch!
