Monsieur Poulet’s Machoire

Machoire by Singeon makes a big first impression, quickly showing the viewer what’s going on with a massive fish and a tiny fisherman about to catch him… and meet his own doom. It’s a neat concept, but what really makes it sing is the use of texture. Gooey, flat plains of purple flow into each other to form the underwater portion of the fish’s body. And above sea level things get even more interesting- a complexly drawn landscape that could be rough scales or rocky terrain forms the upper part of the fish’s body, allowing you to see how the fisherman got tricked into this predicament. But it’s also fascinating to look at, in an abstract way. There’s a real beauty in the shakiness and proximity of lines, and they give the fish a neat kind of grizzled character. He feels almost prehistoric, and personally I’m glad the old guy is about to get a snack.
