Camiseteria’s We Are the Champignons

We Are the Champignons by Felipe is a goofy pun shirt, but one that hits just the right note. I like the way the specificity of the pun is reflected in the detail of the art, which takes care to represent the mushrooms as realistically as possible, right down to the shaggy texture of their stems. It also suits the theme to have the mushrooms shown with little upraised arms, embracing each other in celebration- because the speech bubble quotes the Queen song, it leaves the viewer to imagine that these guys are singing it together. The shadows, so often an afterthought or absent, are used really well here because they help animate the mushrooms by giving them the appearance of leaping into the air together. It’s a joyous, silly shirt.
