The Money Shirt









It all started when from some harmless web browsing and seeing what new interesting sites stumbleupon was recommending to me. Clicking on the Stumble! Firefox toolbar link a site came up that simply stated The Shirt and immediately i knew i had to try to make this, which is a common reaction of mine when presented with something fascinating to me. Some of the folds were a bit tricky but within minutes i had my own miniature collared shirt which moments before had only one common purpose and now took on a new life of its own. As the day progressed many thoughts crossed my mind as to what i would like to do with my newly acquired bit of goodness. I haven't tried much trick photography in my life but the idea of making it look like people were actually wearing this money shirt sounded like a lot of fun. Having an iPhone has served as a handy companion in many instances of me needing to capture a moment of inspiration and that is what the provided pictures are a result of. Featured are some co-workers of mine who were the first subjects willing to try out the experiment. Also featured are a few of my philly friends who are fellow artists and bloggers Pat Blake, Dustin Kellogg, Meredith Frantz Kellogg, and Ben Webb. Here is a link to the site that shows you step by step how to make your own money shirt, enjoy!
