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.
