Keeping It Simple
My entry for Human Giant Loves Threadless.
I am thrilled with how this came out, and I can honestly say that about very few of my designs. Inspired by a lot of things, but mostly Max Fleischer’s animation work, where all the characters are always happily dancing to some crazy scat jazz, regardless of what is going on.
I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do =)
awesome as it is! looks fun! sure five! :)
$5 $5 $5
This is just insanely good. 5$ because I really want to own it one day.
I absolutely love this design. Another print, I hope.
Oh man! I've been trying out a design with fleisher-esque type characters. It hasn't really been coming together for me, but you've really pulled it off brilliantly here olie! Nice work.
holeh craps! awesome idea!
Oh, that's awetastic!
HELP I don't get it.
Max Fleischer rules! those illustrations are awesome! great job! $5
$5 Hands down the best you have ever done Olie. What is wrong with you narr that you do not get it! It's that nasty little color 'toon tryin to change the status quo.
DOOOD YOU WIN AGAIN! $5!!!!!!!!!!
that's good stuff!
this better win it fits Human Giant to a Tee.
seee what i did there threadless?$5kabillion
I like this, great job and I really love the selective colors. Does it continue onto the back? 5
I want it!, congratulations! $5, plus 5
this is KILLER!!! welldone!!! so great illus 5
how is it that you're not printed yet??? won't be long...
This is brilliant!!
I buy this for sure. Cool~
This turned out so great! Homage-o-rific style, great original idea. I especially love the little whistling mouths!
it's great how you colored the action that you wanted the viewer to focus on.
Awesome! That bear character is really really great!!
Pfffff ! This one gonabe a winner for sure !
Wow - love this
wow, this is perfect in every way.
bloody brilliant ollie!
Too orangey for crows!
ps u will b printed soon, I can smell it in the air.
Olie, dude this is fantastic. Right up my alley. Seriously love this.
MY GOD!!!! THIS IS SUPERB, MAGNIFICENT, FUNNY AND IT WILL PRINT!!! MY FAVOTITE OF YOURS!!! $5
my only suggestion is not to fade out the tree on the left. everything else is drawn as a whole and there's only a teeny bit of the tree missing, so it shouldn't be a problem finishing that guy. then it's perfect.
Thank you all for the support so far!
Rachel Ray Gun: Yeah I faded the tree off because it kept the whole design in a neater rectangle, which I thought would fit better on a shirt since this would pretty much go from one side to the other. But you do have a point, so I made that simple change you suggested below anyway =)
Click here for larger version!
yes! perfect! i wouldn't worry about it being an exact rectangle, a finished shape like that second version is visually interesting and will still fit on a shirt. :)
i'll say it AGAIN! PRINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
probably one of the best subs ive seen on threadless. period.
absolutely hilarious. $$$$555555
oh man - this is BRILLIANT!!
and perfectly executed! 5$
Great execution, I'm actually working on a similar, vintage micky mouse-esque themed design (but not for threadless), but because of you, i'm not even bothering with this particular contest!!!
great design mate
This is seriously amazing. $5
CARALHO OLIE, THIS IS FREAKING AMAZING!!!
really, i think this is a design i´ll buy for SURE!
the concept behind this make me wanna tatooed in my chest forEVER!
Olie, you did the design i was waiting to see in a shirt all my life.
wow, this is sickkkk.
i think you are my new favorite designer (next to glennz).
Wicked, I love the retro styles. Cool
my family voted 5$ to this.

Wow this is absolutely amazing! I've been toying around with some Fleischer-esque illustrations too but the concept and execution (pardon the pun) on this makes my efforts seem lame in comparison... A solid $5.
and great model choice!
I'd buy it. $5
Wow, this is a winner all the way! Love it. Can't wait to buy this when it prints. 5$!
cool desaign $5
$5 love it!
I keep coming back. PRINT it now please. And NOT on damn heather gray

Wow so awesome! I can't believe how old the style looks, but yet so fresh! Great work again olie :)
Frantically and immediately good and works every positive neuron in my brain at once!
this is great... i love it... crazy toons...
i don't think i'd buy it but it's crazily good
Threadless, drop whatever you're doing and MAKE THIS SHIRT!
sorry, i have to comment again, this could potentially be the best threadless shirt ever! No blatantly obvious pun, but you've captured vintage cartoons perfectly.
good work again mang
this needs its own theme song....
it would go something like this....
Get the Fuck outta heeeaaayyy!
No colors needed heeeaaayyy!
If we catch you in hhheeeaaayyy!
We will Simply slit your throat!
really nice stuff!
Wowsers this is fantastic!

This is surely getting a $5. No question.
Great great sub!! $5
Excellent job! easy 5
The whistling cloud is a nice touch.
holy shit man... your a star!
This is great and looks even better on the shirt than by itself.
awesomeness, love the executioner fellow whistling, $5
Really really nice. I'd buy it.
On silver not heather though :[
really a winner
The suspense is actually chafing.
I have been back to look at this several times. Really truelly awesome design.
i hope this will be a record score here on threadless
print print print.
Dude you're on fire! Another awesome 3+ score!
WOOHOO!!! I BROKE 3 AGAIN!!! I can’t explain how happy I am about this! =D
Folks, thank you so much again for all your votes and comments and support, to say I really appreciate it is an understatement.
OLIE = WIN
Once again threadless voters, you've become very unpredictable. It deserves higher than that.
Thank you for lovin' my sub roadkill3d! But I am honestly very very happy with this score, breaking 3 is more than I can ask for. I would have been happy with even lower! =)
This is a great score. Seriously should have been +.5 higher imo, but it's another print, so congrats, man! We must collab sometime! :P
It's a print anyway. Cheers!
how the fudge did i miss this... you are one of my heroes
Congrats on the score! They're going to print this one.
wow, amazing! Please print!
Threadless you better print this on heather grey, NOT silver.
Yes! Heather grey and I will buy a bundle of them!
great my friend, nice score,
I want it!
I need this really bad
Olie you are a hero.
Congrats! You are getting a couple of prints this year aye? :)
waits impatiently for the print
I´m waiting for this threadless.
Can't wait for the Print. Great Job!
MY FRIEND, I CAN'T WAIT TO HAVE IT!!!!!!

I seriously hope this gets printed!

i´m saving money for this!
This will be printed next week? right?

Relax guys! It's in the queue!
It's kinda strange that this isn't printed yet...
But I'll give Threadless the benefit of the doubt.
This was the first runner up! Methinks it will be printed yet!!!
If it doesn't, I'll never forgive Maltz.
if you never forgive me
i'll never learn to love again
I hope Dan stays alive long enough that we can bury him in this shirt.
Hahaha. Ok, I forgive you
gahhhhhhhh shit will hit the fan if this doesnt print within the next month!
I´m going to kill you sore ass.
here lies a lesson
I am getting tired of printing this out and taping it to my shirt -
it only lasts a couple hours - even less when its raining
i do - i do blame maltz
damn you maltz!
DAMN YOOOUUUU MALTTTZZZZZZZZ!!
i blame... you!
who is you, though? muahaha
This is a ridiculously long wait for a design that is clearly in the queue.
I know!, print this now!, I want it
fatheed is correct.
damn you, maltz!
olie olie, he's our man!!!
Just ordered this!!!!!!!

Voted for it. Waited for it. Ordered it!
This is oh so good! Love it! Congrats on the print!
