Are you familiar with Trompe-l’oeil? It means “deceive the eye” in French for those linguists out there. It’s a technique that makes a painting or design appear three-dimensional through optical illusion. The technique originated in the Baroque period and it’s still going strong today! When brainstorming our second T-shirt (If you missed our Matisse T-shirt line, make sure you check it out), we wanted to create whimsical Trompe-l’oeil-inspired designs, and that’s what the ‘Fooled Ya! T-Shirt Collection’ is all about! No need to add too many additional accessories because these shirts include them for you, Take a look at all the designs and let us know which one is your favorite!
