These Mats Ottdal T-Shirt Designs are Humorous

Oslo, Norway-based Mats Ottdal describes himself on his Behance page as a multidisciplinary designer and art director who is passionate about illustration and typography. Judging by his recent series of T-shirt decals, this description is well earned.

The decals are all rendered with rather dour colors, sharp lines and a muted sense of depth that would work equally as well on t-shirts as they would in frames. One design features a slew of mustached police who stare blankly at the viewer from behind aviator sunglasses. Another depicts an orange-clad family who look like they just got back from a less-than-relaxing vacation and aren't too happy to be around one another.

Although some may find these illustrations morose, it would be hard to deny the humor in them. Stats for Morose Dour Decals Trending: Older & Average
