The 'Make Your Franklin' Project Lets Artists Redesign The 100 Dollar Bill

This is a very cool communal art project that allows artists from around the world to recreate America's 100 dollar bill in a way that they feel is better served then the old Ben Franklin. The results were amazing and very representative of the many walks of life that the artists come from. You can see all of them by clicking here. Here are a few of my faves. If only our money really looked this cool!!!

  1. Damn, I like that 'Logos' design! Totally gives me the impression that this is what Ben Franklin might look like in today's society.
