Anyone Have Change for a Dollar? Dynamic Dollar Art

CartmanCartman

Have you ever had one of those days while riding public transportation, looking down at your crumpled money and thought, “Damn, I wish I could turn this dollar bill into Cartman”?

No? Me neither. But if I did, I'd turn to this artist.

Marc Sky, the Dollar Artist, creates cool origami sculptures out of dollar bills. He has made many unique creations such as animals, religious figures, movie icons, Zodiac signs and historical figures. He even has a special Adults Only section crafted from dollar bills. I would have looked at it but my Mom was standing right behind me, so you'll have to check it out for me and give me all the details.

Most of these sculptures are available for purchase on his website and cost $7.95. The Dollar Artist will even show up at events and trade shows to make dollar sculptures for people.

He can even fold a message out of dollar bills, such as: “I Love InventorSpot.”

Actually, these would make great Christmas gifts, because this is one gift that won’t be re-gifted. Unless you’re one of those people that just likes to give your money away….but if you are, feel free to send it to Diana, c/o InventorSpot.

Many thanks to Marc Sky, the Dollar Artist!

Brilliant!

Great fun!  There's not too much else one can do with a dollar anymore.

looks awesome! I wish I could spend money like that but thankfully I don't seem to have that talent either though.
