Threadless’s Pigeons

Pigeons by rodrigobhz is my favorite Threadless print this week, an unusual ode to New York City that somehow hits just the right quirky note. Combining the ubiquitous but much maligned pigeon with one of the most popular sitcoms of all time isn’t a natural fit, but ends up making perfect sense- both the birds and the characters are basically pests (though charming at times), and both are absolutely symbols of the city in different ways. It’s fun to see how each iconic character has made the bird transformation, with Kramer and George remaining shockingly recognizable. The art style used is a lot of fun as well, with thick, rounded lines that help the birds to feel soft and friendly.
