San Francisco-based artist James Charles started to be happily occupied drawing on dollar bills, changing faces and transforming them into iconic portraits using ink on real U.S. currency bill. His ink and materials for this art project combines well and match flawlessly with what U.S. Mint applies on the bank notes. Later on, he began changing the font and script of the lower part of the bills perfectly.

James Charles’ artwork is currently on view at the Shooting Gallery, side by side with Akira Beard for the “American Iconomics” dual exhibition presentation and is open to the public until June 4, 2011. Here’s a showcase of what he called art projects in which he doesn’t consider as currency bills.
