My Kodachrome T-Shirt

2011-01-14 25

Kodak took our Kodachrome away and I have not even shot a single roll. Since it seems impossible to get a roll and send it to Dwayne’s Photo, I decided to create a T-shirt in honor of this unique emulsion.

Kodachrome T-shirt

I was desperately trying to buy some rolls of this special emulsion so I can still send the films to Dwayne's but I remained unsuccessful. I decided to print a T-shirt of the Kodachrome logo instead.

It was almost impossible to find a suitable picture for vectorization on the internet, so in the end, I redesigned it myself. And since I could not decide between the two of them, I would like to share both:

    I still have a 1988 roll, 5 years after I was born, I was too broke to shoot and get it developed :(
    Hopefully some magic happens and it puts my kids through college.

    So how does one save/view/manipulate a SVG file? I want my own version of that!

  23. floriansimon

    save: there are so many options, but the simplest might be to right-click on the link and click "Save as" or "Download"
    view: in a modern web browser like "safari", "google chrome" or "firefox"
    manipulate: for example "inkscape" (open source) or "illustrator" (by adobe)
