You are now entering Sloth Mode

In the jungle, the mighty jungle
The sloth sleeps well tonight
In the jungle, the quiet jungle
The jaguar prowls tonight

In October, Undie Club members were surprised with Sloth Mode - a tropical delight straight from the Amazon jungle! This fine illustration is brought to you by talented Australian freelance artist, Mel Baxter. In a beautiful rich colour palette, the design features an unfazed sloth that yawns in the face of danger as it hides from the hungry jaguar amongst the cecropia leaves. Sloth Mode is a reminder to the Knobby Nation to slow down, relax, and enjoy life at your own pace.

Members of The Undie Club also had a surprise inclusion in this month's delivery! A super cool sloth pop-out puzzle that you can build and admire for many years to come. While these special inclusions are limited edition and usually only reserved for The Undie Club, a few lucky people will have one included in their parcel when they purchase one or more styles from the Sloth Mode collection online.

Beers & Bad Questions

Mel Baxter is the mastermind behind some of our most popular designs - Hello Possum and Swoopy - and was the obvious choice to bring the flora and fauna of the jungle to life in this design. Mel has over 15 years experience as a freelance artist and draws inspiration from the incredible land on which we live. The majority of Mel’s work is an appreciation for the wildlife and plant life that is the backdrop to our lives.

To showcase the brilliant artists we collaborate alongside, we interviewed Mel with a series of bad rapid-fire questions. You can read the equally bad answers below:
