Refacing Government Tender - Dollar Art
Our money is more than legal tender. These presidential portraits have been a part of the popular culture for so long that that they've become a part of the culture in their own right. Bill graffiti has been around for some time, but I have never quite seen it as ornate and outright hilarious as from flickr's own Joe D!. (The exclamation point is part of his name and not an outpouring of excitement on my part, much as I love this link.)
Joe's posted 75 images of bill defacements - often minimalist, occasionally blurry and obscure but always uproarious. Check out his gallery for the complete series.
