In the series ‘American Iconomics,’ artist James Charles uses dollar bills as his canvas and transforms the portraits of presidents into the images of pop culture characters. Using materials and ink that perfectly match what the US Mint uses, he intricately changes the features of each face, such that it totally becomes something else.
Some of the famous characters he’s put on a dollar bill are Yoda, Spock, Ronald McDonald, Pinhead and Mr. T.
We know, we know, it’s illegal to deface dollar bills, but with art as beautiful as this, I think he should be given an exception! You can check out more from this series here.
