American Iconomics: U.S. Dollars Turned Into Portraits Of American Icons
Let’s admit it – our national banknotes are just plain boring. Wouldn’t it be fun if they wore the faces of artists, musicians, characters, scientists, and other contemporary popular culture icons? As it turns out, artist James Charles redesigned U.S. dollar bills with just such a cast of characters. These dollars have never looked better and more desirable!
Some countries, like pre-Euro Austria, Belgium and France, were daring enough to put their best exports on their bills, but most of us can only dream of such colorful money. Is it too much to hope for that Charles’ work is a sign of what’s in store?

Wouldn’t this be considered defacing government property and would therefore be unusable?

Same goes for the characters like Facehugger, Pinhead and Frankenstain. Not American creations..
