American Iconomics: Dollar bills showcasing your favorite pop-cultural characters

Artist Shaun Hughes had brought forth his line of ‘hobo nickel’ collection that depicted your favorite icons on coin pieces. And now, artist James Charles has continued with the tradition, albeit on the greater denomination of paper money with his aptly named series of American Iconomics.

The bills show a wealth of famous pop-cultural characters ranging from Princess Leia, Hell Raiser’s Pinhead to Albert Einstein and Jimi Hendrix. Oh, and lest we forget – Gene Simmons looks suspiciously close to original Benjamin Franklin, but with the iconic Kiss make-up draping the renowned leader; while Alien facehuggers snugly hug Abraham Lincoln’s face – who also has a Captain America variant of himself.
