Alex won a huge prize pack courtesy of Threadless, which included a round trip for two to Iceland and $2000 cash and much more! What’s even cooler is that the band Calexico wrote a song inspired by the Bird Migration entry – titled Absent Afternoon. You can download the track for free here!
Here’s what Alex said about what inspired his entry:
“A little story behind the design, I was on my way to Bulgaria for a competition, and I was stuck on the plane for 18 hours, I had an idea for a while, about migration and the process, and thought it fit perfect with the TRAVEL theme, and what better place to draw it then on the plane while traveling, I was a bit sad I was going to be away from my daughter, and that build to the design, me wishing I could take everything with me every time I travel far.” -Alex Solis
