  • He could have used any paper I imagine but using real money really makes an emotional impact with almost everyone.

    Now do it with one hundred dollar bills.

    Sphinx says:

    Lana says:
  • I would also like to know if Thank You Jesus is available

  • They are visually stunning. As for the legality of it all, I’m sure they have better things to do right now, but here’s something that I [url=http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=426715]found.[/url] I’d like to see him make something with our Flag. I’m sure it would draw tons of attention and could convey a powerful message.

  • It’s only illegal to alter money if you intend to use it as money again.

  • what is this??? How was it done??? Someone email me and let me know…[email protected]

    Heather says:
  • Awesome Stuff. Human Mind can be amazing. Even after doing so much with bills, still the artist seems to be using just 10% of his mind.

    That means a guy like me uses the brain even lesser.

    Imagine what designs this guy can produce if he uses even 20% of his brain.

  • whoa!!

    Reilly47 says:
  • I bought a piece from that show. It’s not shown here though. The stuff is amazing. I emailed [email protected] and they got back to me pretty quickly and we did the transaction. The single stack pieces are 2500 as the triple stacks like the virgin Mary are 5000. Hope this helped.

    MarkArmstrong says:
  • how much ?

    lalalinda says:
  • Yeah – good to see the American dollar is still useful for something. Rock on.

    LisaMaria says:
  • Wow these are really great!

    ArtsApart.co.uk says:
  • lalalinda 05.03.09

    the single stacks are 2,500 and the three stackes like skull and virgin mary are 5,000

    MarkArmstrong says:
  • Oh brother, Mark. You got ripped off big time paying 2,500 for worth of bills that are now useless. Although they are admittedly cool, I don’t see the big deal about making a laser stencil out of an EPS file and zapping a bunch of bills with it.

    zomba says:
  • Ditto above. Thanks!
