Monsieur Poulet’s Groarrrr

Groarrrr by Ludwick is only available on child sizes, and you can see why this piece would be particularly popular with kids- it captures a sense of daring and adventure that suits childhood perfectly. But I think this design also has potential appeal beyond that group because of the choices made throughout the art. For instance, the onomatopoeia of the roar’s spelling, which adds a G at the start for a throaty bellow and an Rrr at the end to emphasize the growl. There’s also a neat moment is the way the fluffy curls of the lion’s mane seem to reference the way the daredevil child has a similar hairstyle. Both creatures also have a relaxed, eyes shut facial expression- a perfectly in sync team rather than two individuals interacting. The lion is missing some teeth to make him seem individual, while the child is about as blank as possible (not even a design or color on his clothes) to make him easy for any kid to relate to. It’s solid work, and I’d bet that more than a few adults would happily wear it.
