Matt Giraffe:This goes out to all my haters
where are the haters huh?
i never really liked this style in the first place.. but a shirt.. in this style.. about hating the person who does this style.. is even more rediculous.
natalie dee? is that you in there?
Zero, Cero, Nul, Zéro, Null, ?????, ??, ???
I see you're an even better tosser than you are a tshirt designer pixel...
This shite gets funnier by the minute.
ha, look who's talking douche!
so apparently oddica are hiring 12 year olds to design their tshirts.
i almost want to give you points for your persistance. but i really dont' like your style. all the shirts you submit look the same, and none of them really strike me as clever. its seems you are more concerned about getting a reaction from the comments, than actually trying to make a shirt design that anyone would want. this one especially.
Plenty of people want it, just maybe not as a proportion of the general population. Maybe it's not that the tshirt isn't clever, it could be the person looking at it. It's alot more clever than toast with faces on it at least.
I offer something different to the same old mundane shit that gets subbed each and every day.
WOW!!! This is quite possibly the worst design/illustration ever committed to paper or screen.
Oh wait I just checked your profile, other t-shirts and web site, I stand corrected design does get worse than this shirt. My advice, a new career path maybe?
I think it's hilarious.
"peed on an immigrant"
"probably doesn't exist"
and "touched the queen" made me lol.
you make my point for me, by coming directly back and trying to attack me in your comment, by insinuating that I'm not clever enough to "get" your design.
It seems more people would like to wear toast with faces, as those designs actually get printed.
Yes well that's because people are boring idiots. My designs don't cater to boring idiots, and unlike what you want to suggest, I am not going to sell out just to satisfy people like you.
i got a good laugh out of the same ones potato did.
please dont do a toast with faces design banana.
its ok id rather design something unpopular than design a lump of shit to be popular.
do you draw those with your feet or something?
much anger. if only you could convert it into something constructive....
GODDAMMIT I hate it when people spell it "rediculous." Didn't anyone go to elementary school?
And I love all these comments from the wise, experienced designers who have no submissions and have only ranked a handful ...
If you don't get it, don't prove your douchebaggery by spelling out your failures to us in comments. "It is better to be silent and be thought an immigrant, than to type a response and remove all doubt."
I for one love most of your designs.
Especially this one
All in all I like the design. And I know you intended it to be this way, but it's REALLY bugging me that his shirt isn't completely colored and the spaces in the letters aren't colored. It just looks incomplete. Just make it look more "finished" and I would buy it. Maybe.
people said they dont like it more than they dont get it. whats to get? its a crappy drawing whose only purpose is to cause a comment war.
Yeah I prefer people to insult me with words they know how to spell.
obviously you don't get it shirt... it has sweet fuck all to do with war.
And if people comment on the work its because they care enough to, if they care about a "crappy drawing" then they should feel free to comment.
You know, too many people pick on bananaphone. So what if you don't like his work? If you think it's bad, then there are plenty of other less-than-perfect designs out on Threadless you should be commenting on. This is supposed to be a friendly place. If you don't like a design at all, give it a 0 and move on with it. Art's opinionated...and you can't put others down for it simply because your taste is different than the creators'. Quit being so immature and give bananaphone a break. Either that, or be fair and criticize everybody else's designs which you happen to disagree with.
And another thing...right above the "Post Comment" button:
"Note: If you're going to criticize please be constructive and respectful about it."
"do you draw those with your feet or something? " is hardly constructive.
I was trying to be constructive in telling him it's much easier to illustrate with your hands than feet is all, is that so wrong?!
haha i love every single one of your/matts designs! this is amazing and hilarious 5
"WOW!!! This is quite possibly the worst design/illustration ever committed to paper or screen.

ouch..i agree with bsharp7
You are super super funny.
I don't know if I'd wear it as a shirt, only because there's too much stuff to read - I think you have a brilliant sense of humour and it matches your crazy style completely, just aimed at the wrong target.
I just don't find the "I drew this with MS Paint and a mouse" aesthetic pleasing, no matter how much irony you shovel on.
OMG, this is genius! i love it
This is awesome.
I really like this style, and find it alot more humourous than the typical style of either a pun or something cutesy. I hate cutesy.
I am in the bananaphone fan-club
okay now I really do want to see your rendition of toast with a face
I love this.
5$ for the poetic irony
A designer creating a design for other designers portraying the critics who hate his designs - - So Avant-Garde!
p.s. any Matt Giraffe version of Food with Faces will rock your world.
i think it's hysterical
BANANAPHONE WE LOVE YOU
even if you do draw with your feet.
actually if you did that would make it like 8x more awesome.
5 for danger!
As far as the ms paint goes, I hand draw using uniball eye micros because they have a nice line and wetness about the ink, then i scan, and illustrator it up.
I find it strange that so many people are so staunchly hating of anything that doesn't have perfectly curved lines or solid colours. It really is extremely narrow minded. And quite frankly - this would look shit hot on a tshirt.
So many of you want to bitch and moan about my graphic skill, that's interesting, it's an assumption that i must draw every piece of my work? I bet you didn't even look at the colours in this piece and realise that not only are they suited perfectly to the tshirt colour chosen - but they are also well balanced in the composition as a whole.
I get it, and it's not funny, and you might be funny if all your shit wasn't mass produced in 5 min.
I'm not a huge fan of your style, but there is definately a place for it . . . but please, sit down for a minute and actually come up with a real concept that genuinely has some kind of idea behind it, not just something you pulled out of your ass.
Your designs obviously aren't accepted on this site, so if you actually have an ambition to put them on t-shirts why not go do it somewhere else. But I have a fealing you really just want a reaction, so I'm sure we'll be seeing more of this . . . whatever it is.
Most of my designs have a strong idea behind them. If there was no idea, why say "I get it"
Obviously if there was no idea there'd be nothing to get. Do you alway post comments like this to make yourself feel important?
Oh and if I wanted "just" a reaction I know how to get it. You don't see Jesus giving any gloryhole blowjobs in my profile do you?
^I think I just got an idea for my first sub ...
youd have to be abstract about the penis though, they declined my "you complete me" sub without too much hesitation =P
I need some danger in my life. You get a 5.
Wow... just when I thought the whole "I <3 bananaphone / I X bananaphone" couldn't sink lower...
Anyway - constructive - right:
I agree with joshamman that all of the T-shirts look the same. This doesn't seem like it's going to change so, then, the issue to overcome next is the development of the idea on the T-shirt. In reflection even the concepts are pretty much the same. Well, lately, they seem to have more of a meta-level flavor to them (thus making them less marketable). Overall, the earlier ideas/designs were rejected, the thought process hasn't moved forward (it's more inward), and I expect that the number of people willing to even take the time to critique the ideas will diminish. Please do not misconstrue this to mean that you've won anyone over - if anything, you've worn them down. Please look upon ideas for the T-shirts as something to craft. As is, it comes across that the ideas are merely passing thoughts whose implications haven't been deliberated. Furthermore, is it marketable? If the idea is simply to display images, there are non-T-shift forums in which you may develop your gallery.
So, is this meant to be personally attacking bananaphone? No, not really. There are plenty others whose ideas are, at times, lacking the creative juices to stand above the standards of quality that are typical of a threadless shirt. I, however, decided to comment here with bananaphone because it seems that others either leave the hopes of designing or mature their thoughts processes about what it means to design. At this point, bananaphone, I recommend time off to nurture your ideas. Refine them. Craft them. Then, and only then, built them and submit them.
If I am wearing people down and less people like me, then how come more people want to buy these than ever, they are getting the best rankings than ever, and more comments than ever.
Tell me that?
There are alot of people that want to wear these whether uptight people like you like it or not. As for the ideas being the same, no, my last sub was about the types of people that wear berets, and this one is a reflection on Matt Giraffes popularity with alot of irony on top.
Theres been others about Tuna moguls, cornchips, and more.
So back your arguments up with a little SUBSTANCE in future. Thanks.
i like the style a lot. if you differ, move on. why do you have to bash it to the ground with misspelled, lame comments? YOU'RE the ones who should be directing your anger for a more useful purpose.
