Monsieur Poulet’s Incognito

Incognito by Anne Cécile OLEART is a real gem of a shirt. I love the flat, stylized look of the produce, which has an almost paper-cut sharpness and precision to it. This style allows each object to feel both like a symbol of the food it represents, but also (through use of not-quite-round circles and lines that bend) like unique specimens of their type. So while it has qualities of an educational aid, the illustrator’s hand can also be felt. You can see why this shirt was intended for children in the way it labels each item so carefully, but I think the quirkiness would also make it a fun design for adults, particularly because of how alien that sliced pear in the center looks. My only quibble this this piece is that I wish the labels were handwritten instead of using a font- I think a more playful touch on the lettering, allowing the words to bend around the objects they describe, would create a more dynamic look.
