Boopadoopadoop! Bananaphone?

No, silly! It's just a regular old 400 points-earning banana. I'm not quite sure if the rounded rectangle is helping or hurting the design. Any thoughts?


Next: Shading!

Edit: I guess it's not completely evident that this is supposed to be Donkey Kong Junior. Either it's just a bad design, or the game wasn't as big to others as it was to me. Or maybe it's both. I'm still going to finish it, though. It makes me laugh.



If you don't have a Bananaphone, you can use this one. (mp3)

i just picked up my new bananaphone. mine came with a banana bandana. i'm sorry that i don't have something funnier to say.

i dig the rectangular monkey. he would fit nicely in some sort of box that was shaped just like him.

That monkey would make a great T-shirt.

I've linked you on my blog, because you rock.

Bananaphones are excellent, but I'm sure to brainstorm up a new invention any day now.

Any day.

Tomorrow.

Why do they come to me to die?

Thanks guys. I appreciate it! I'd reply in more depth, but I'm sure there's some really good action movie on Fox or TBS right now.

yeah.

You can't see Dante's Peak or Twister enough times can you? I watched "I confess" last night- kind of dragged for a Hitchcock Film.

Anyways.
Great Design, and colors and top notch banana rendering, and his feet are really cute- not that I have some monkey foot fetish (I've said too much already)

oh.. DONKEY kong jr!.. i thought it was curious george's adventures across the 5th dimension. (you know, marilyn mccoo's soul/r&b outfit from the 70's). my mistake.

spacesick said...

brian - So true. And thanks for the compliment! Your secret's safe with me.

dr. oNo! - Oh, you! They say condescension is the sincerest form of flattery.

dr. oNo! said...

yeah. actually my therapist said i'm a self absorbed asshole. i don't know if that had anything to do with the fact that i slept with his wife. i don't think so.

on a serious note, i really dig your artwork. and i always look forward to seeing what you come up with next. now get back to work jerk.
