In 2010, artist James Charles began drawing on dollar bills, for the sake of his own amusement;
crudely altering the presidents’ faces to become monsters, celebrities, etc. After accidentally
spending a few of his early pieces, James decided to stop carrying them in his wallet, and started putting them inside of a magazine for safe-keeping. The magazine folder eventually became a large scrapbook, showcasing bills of all denominations. He found ink and materials to match perfectly what the U.S. Mint uses on the bank notes, and began to experiment with ways to alter the font and script along the bottom of the bills. It became the perfect way for James to inject an additional layer of wit.
