This artist knows how to make a dollar using a dollar!
There was a very interesting story this morning on the "CBS This Morning" show about artist Mark Wagner, who uses crisp, new dollar bills to create intricate collages. He cuts the dollars up into small pieces and makes fabulous, complex images from them. If there is a human figure in any collage, it always has the face of George Washington. If there are multiple figures, they all have George Washington's face. Really fascinating work. He is quite successful; his original works sell in the tens of thousands of dollars range. Check out his web site. I've linked to his flora and fauna page.
