This project has been on the shelf for over a decade
So Canon, the camera company, was originally known as Camera Kwanon, after Kuan Yin, or Kan'on, the Buddhist goddess of mercy. The original logo is AWESOME, and ten-fifteen years ago, there wasn't any vector versions, or even high-rez versions of the logo. I kinda wanted to put it on a t-shirt or a hoodie, so I found the highest-rez version I could (which wasn't very high-rez at all) and started tracing it to vector.
I'm bad at finishing projects, so I did a bunch of work, and then just sort of forgot about it. My girlfriend knows how to do silkscreening, so that was an excuse to start the project up again, and actually finish it. Of curse, after over a decade of collecting dust, you can now get T-shirts with this logo online for cheap, making all of my work useless.
