Threadless’s The Creation of the Storm

The Creation of the Storm by boo_arte is my favorite Threadless print this week. Taking its cues from the famous Michelangelo painting The Creation of Adam, the two characters gesture towards each other with extended fingers. But unlike the fine art original, this rendition is all about retro cartoon charm. Facial expressions are minimal lines, but still manage to communicate a serene cloud and cheeky, mischievous personality for the bolt. The wink makes me imagine a loud, thunderous boom erupting when their fingers finally touch. Gentle distressing reinforces the vintage feel of the piece. All in all, a very complete and successful design, the sort of image that would definitely help to cheer up a dreary, rainy day.
