Threadless Loves Travel – Bird Migration

I am not sure how this one slipped me by but Threadless announced their Threadless Loves Travel winner earlier this week and to no surprise the winner was Alex Solis and his Bird Migration entry. 

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
