Do you know?

It takes a lot of little workers to keep those things moving, to find a mate, etc.

giraffes are my favorite. I love the idea, especially carrying the leaves down to the kitchen! You even included a crapper, and tastefully too! So creative! 5$$$

stephanocheerio

I love the green leaves :) great job $5

Batty1980

This is fantastic, good job. $5

hogboy

wow, without wanting to jinx I don't think I've seen a more surefire winner than this recently

jazzbolicious

Well done, definately reminds me of all those "how things work" books I read as a kid. Love the style that looks like a 1930s political cartoon also. 5$

DrVSP

this is great. I would like some more exciting colors, though. brown on natural just doesn't wake me up in the morning. $5 anyway.

"Finding Love Was Never So Awkward"

This has nothing to do with the theme and is overall lame.

mj00

It's a stretch to claim this has anything to do with the theme. All the little workers are working on food and movement. There's no love reference here at all.

Also, I love this as an illustration. For me, it falls apart as a shirt because the overall shape is so dull. From farther back than a couple of feet, this just looks like a boring old giraffe. I wish some of the care that you put into the interior workings had been applied to the overall composition of the shirt.

yeohgh

Yeah people, admittedly this was inspired more by the fact that the two characters dress-up like their favorite animals than the theme "awkward love".

nosutt

awsome period

This better get freaking printed. I love it.

BrandonB11

i tried somethign similar to this a few months ago with an elephant and some mice... but MY GOD you have some amazing talent.... id just hope it woudlnt be too detailed for a shirt... very hard 5$

Ava Adore

amazing!
print for sure

valorandvellum

Crazy!! That's some awesome details you have in there... I want to see the rest!

$5.

whatarebirds

Might be more effective if it was just the giraffe's neck, magnified and coming up from the bottom of the shirt? That'd be sweet, and you could see the details without needing to be right up against the person's chest!

eskimokiss

Gorgeous and imaginative illustration!
5!!

chippos

GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EZFL

wow. this is definitely a print.

jazzbolicious

By far the best of the horde of giraffes on Threadless right now!

d3d

did you know a giraffe has a valve at the base of it's neck to cut off the blood flow when he leans down for a drink? otherwise the pressure of blood would blow his head off.
sweet.

mephitine

I really like this for a kids' t-shirt.

Slinkey Binky

that is really good! i wish i had enough money to buy all the awesome t-shirts on Threadless!!!$5!!!

queenoftheworld

I love it, but I am confused as to why you would enter for Eagle vs. Shark

thatcrazywyles

Your talent kicks me in the teeth $5

Bramish

Real nice!

elemenopy

best giraffe yet.

WanderingBert

Awesome design. Worthy to be printed- Just not as the winner of Eagle Vs. Shark. I don't really see how it works for the theme at all. Great design!

jean_warhol

Did this win yet? lol

AlinaT

this is like wow..

unin5pired

Wow. I will exchange sexual favors to ensure this gets printed.

$5

kaloyster

Nice design. Although i think it has nothin' to do with the theme.

And without the legs, it kinda looks genitalia-ish from afar.

SassyGiraffey

I'm crazy about this design, but not the shirt color. Brown? Natural? White, even?

$5 on a different color.

Skipper6745

Holy goodness this is epic.

And yes, nothing to do with the theme, and it bugs me when people sub for themes just to get extra prizes. But I'll vote it on the design. 5$

Thanks all, and yeah, not inspired by the actual tagline "awkward love", but because the characters hook up at an animal costume party. I don't see why all submissions on a theme have to be so literal and/or obvious.

Sorry, I'll try and submit a cactus and balloon in love later this week...

AlinaT

a definite win.

bsweber

well thats a nice score

Papernails
